I get the argument that a proper anti cheat could lead to false bans and i'm not saying to change that, but a server with this magnitude should not be using an outdated anti cheat like this, its probably safe to say there are a lot of well known players using ghost clients or auto clicking, simply because AAC doesn't log anything like that and so therefore these players can cheat with no risk of a punishment seeing as AAC can only detect blatant cheats. My advice is either get your own custom anti cheat and build it up from the ground or modify an existing modern anticheat so it only checks and alerts staff and doesn't ban

Going to refer to what Orange said in this post, especially this post: https://skycade.net/threads/anti-cheat-kicks.30704/#post-119253

AAC can only detect blatant cheats.
AAC can only barely pick up insane reach levels, and only then the notification is "suspicious hits". It can pick up KA easily but that's no help in catching closet cheaters. Also true story, it didn't pickup b-hop so cheaters were b-hopping around the map for 10 minutes at speeds to which we couldn't read their name. Fun times :)

The current anti-cheat is fine. AAC is one of the best premium ones out there and most custom anti-cheats are built from AAC. Skycade has over 57k bans with AAC and staff are all experienced with hacks. Skycade has no need for a custom anticheat at all.

a lot of the bans are bots & other offences

Yeah but most of are malicious hacks, AAC is a perfectly good anticheat for the playerbase of skycade right now. If they ever expands and add in new pvp gamemodes then maybe a custom Anti-Cheat could be a good idea but for now I personally think that the staff team is sufficient.

I’ve had friends and known people who were able to autoclick 16 cps with 4.5 block reach and the anti cheat did nothing

You are severely misinformed you have EVER played kitpvp early morning you will find atleast 5 hackers at a time. Most of them lasting at least 30 minutes at a time. Not only would a better anticheat take strain of staff, but increase player interest. Mostly you will ALWAYS one or more hackers on. Whether it be closet cheaters or blatant cheaters. Plus staff members do have lives outside of the server so they can't always be on. (Not entirely their fault)

how many of those 57 thousand bans are closet cheaters, that is the point i'm making

I am not talking about malicious hacks that are blatant, where the player doesn't care if they look like there hacking and just want to have fun or annoy people, i'm talking about people who use little reach and autoclickers to gain a slight advantage on the other players, which is what aac is poor at detecting, how many people have you seen get banned for autoclicker, probably very little as it is hard to detect

+1, I haven't played too much kitpvp recently, but when I did, there were blatant anti kb, autosoup, and ka users. And even when I do now, still happening

Agreed, AAC can't pickup reach like 3.2-3.5, possibly even higher, and there's no detection for autoclickers either.

FYI Alex already said:
Devs are very expensive, and we aren't exactly swimming in cash. A private anti cheat would take a long time.
"Buy the correct one"... like what?

Only like 3 good anticheats, all of which are private.
Although that was a while back so the situation might of changed
