In the most recent Top Issues post(10/2/2020), Ubisoft claims to be looking into MnK use on consoles. They are ďgathering information and technical data to gauge how widespread these adapters are and if they can detect them in a reliable manner.Ē

How concerned does the XIM community need to be for potential ban waves?

Do you think they will add native MnK for console?

There has already been a topic about this. Summary:

- xim is not detectable, especially with SAB 0
- they probably refer to competitor products that can be detected
- they have no right to ban mouse and keyboard adapters since Sony and Microsoft are fine with them.
- other game developers have already attempted to do this but had to step back again

Its just PR to please their community

Respawn said nearly the same thing word for word a year or so ago for Apex Legends. Nothing happened. It was more than likely said to keep those who think it's a wide spread issue (it isn't) happy and from continuously complaining.

Welcome to the community. Our stance has always been the same on this whenever a game developer says something like this:

1) We hope they do investigate how frequently adapters like ours are used on consoles because they will see it's insignificant comparatively.

2) XIM is seen to the console as a controller. This means the only option they have is input pattern matching which is incredibly hard and the stakes are high -- it can never be wrong (i.e. no false positives which is impossible).

3) They run the risk of banning people with disabilities -- especially those that use their own accessibility aides (not XIM and not the Xbox Adaptive Controller). These are people that just want to game like others and will certainly be picked up by any detector they attempt.
Get the most out of your XIM APEX, read the XIM APEX Support FAQ.
