First noticed by Tyler Wilde over at PCGamer, one Reddit consumer supposedly encountered a cheater when enjoying ranked Rocket League. Like many people, Tyler initially brushed the clip off as an sad participant, till he truly watched it.
Midway via the clip (embedded under), it turns into blatant that one thing fishy is happening right here. The supposed cheater within the clip is on the identical crew as put up writer, u/ghost_snyped, and the clip is from the cheater’s perspective.
If, like me, you’re not massively skilled with Rocket League and solely often leap on for a associates’ sake, you would possibly view this clip and assume the participant to be actually expert at first. Nevertheless, a more in-depth look and it’s simple to see that the extent of ability proven off by the alleged cheater is inhuman.
And that’s as a result of the cheater is, actually, inhuman.
The cheater is definitely a bot borne from RLGym. RLGym is a fairly rad machine-learning instrument that can be utilized to coach Rocket League bots, together with the one proven within the above clip. Now, after all individuals had been going to find this and use it for nefarious means.
Nevertheless, this isn’t what the instrument was meant for, nor are bots essentially new to Rocket League. It simply so occurs that somebody has manipulated RLGym’s machine studying bot for in-game achieve. The information is that individuals will solely us RLGym’s instrument to make their very own newer and higher bots.
RLGym additionally says that it doesn’t condone the bot showing in ranked matches, and seems dedicated to not letting cheaters abuse bots. Within the meantime, Rocket League developer Psyonix advised PCGamer that it’s “actively investigating options” to the dishonest drawback.
