Is Exploiting Rampant?

I think hackers are wide spread, but not so much that you will see them often, because it's only the rare dumb ----- who wants to go out in a blaze of glory who reveals himself, killing tons of people and getting recorded. There will be plenty of sly hackers who are doing this when nobody is around, the bots have systems in place to deactivate certain features when other players enter radar space. That player running from tree to tree gathering could be a bot, you'll never really know, same with fishing bypassing the mini game, unless you study it hard. Bots bypassing the market capatcha, and who is gonna notice if someone added 500HP to their stats, you don't know they could be a well geared high level...so yeah there is a lot of things like this going around that I am concerned about and is putting me off. There are 2 main bots from my knowledge and both forums have 5000+ registered members and lots of discussions sharing and selling LUA scripts etc, (I did some snooping). 

The longer it goes without fix A) the more people will feel comfortable hacking because they feel safe, B) more people will feel they have to hack to counter hackers or keep up with hackers etc, so this is a vital 2-3 weeks for Daum in my opinion the future of the game rests on these vital weeks here.

Isn't that more an issue with Peral Abyss than with Daum though? We know that Daum are taking a stance against hackers and are banning them, but people seem to think that Daum are sitting back doing nothing whilst hackers run rife across the game. The forums wants you to think that there's a hacker round every corner, however the fact that a few people have commented that they've never run into a hacker shows otherwise.

Why is it ok for someone to say "I saw a hacker, there are tons!" and others to flocked behind this statement but as soon as someone claims "Well I'm 55 and haven't seen one yet" suddenly they're lying and wrong. Seems rather hippo critical to me...

You are right it is PA not Daum that have to fix the problem.  However as a programmer (professional not hobby), I would go as far as say there is no way they could fix the issue without rewriting the whole client/server code, without even looking at it.  They have probably made enough money that they could shut the game down now and consider it a successful business venture.

As for the second part, I would guarantee that everyone who plays the game has seen a hacker, they just don't know it, those hackers are smart ones, the ones who give themselves minor boosts.  It's easy to see the moron hackers, speed hacking or insta killing everything, etc. that are somewhat rarer, but you will see them eventually, i see one about once a week.

i love the assumption that is okey for haker to try to hack and is daum fault for make it easy

so if they steal your care if the car company fault that made it easy

if they steal your wallet at night in a dark street is your fault because u are not batman

 

i hate the mentality that being an asshole is normal and it's the other people that have to limit you it's sad to notice that everybody think that way nobody think hacker should just stop doing it "it's easy to hack then is normal" wtf is wrong with you nobody has any decency left?

There is someone I killed botting like 2 months ago.... wonder if anyone on Jordine knows her, Sorceress name... starts with Lady G

She was videoed multiple times botting hexe, I even ganked her loads with a wizard. I saw her online the other day on the fishing leader board. She's probably no longer botting hexe and instead moved to fishing.

But that was like 2 months back... or more.

Blizzard have been coming down incredibly -----ing hard on cheaters/botters lately...

Honorbuddy is currently locked in a bitter court battle with Blizzard. They've had 3 ban waves this year alone..... big ones too. A lot of people are quitting botting simply due to the sheer number of bans there have been.

I've not seen one single bot in battlegrounds lately.... before I quit a few months back there were odd few. Now there are none.

This is really sad, invested money and time in this game, is this turning into "you can't ban them then join them"!

Only thing legit players can do is quit.

Humans have never been decent creatures, the very principal of all laws is to suppress human nature.  The Bible is one of the earliest human tamers known to mankind, it worked on the principle of fear, fulfillment and promise. it was an effective tool back when humans thought an earthquake was the act of a giant catfish, or Hades, or the devil.

scientific age proved all that stuff to be mumbo jumbo superstitious nonsense, so we made the law to replace the bible.  like the bible before, there were those that stood against the man made laws.

i don't agree with it being normal a lot of people here like me feel cheating in a game is wrong those are the normal people trying to justify those asshole with "is human nature" 

 

"it is human nature" my ass most of the people here show real human nature when they play fair. Again i don't feel the need to justify those looser with "it's normal" it's not -----ing normal to be assholes and no it's not okey is not cool and nor smart is just ruining that game for other people being a moron incapable of having fun together most probably is result of very low self-esteem most probably well earned low self-esteem if you are such a lame looser that need to cheat

A duffle sack opens along the top usually seen in military or industrial applications, A duffle bag opens along the side via zippers or Velcro, aka the gym bag

While I did not know that, I was amused at the fact you mentioned a single sack.

Investigations take some time. Besides reviewing the video, we also do a check in our own logs. Don't worry though, if he is indeed cheating, we will get him!

What kinda logs tho?. Are you able to check his account and see that yup he is hacking because certain values don't add up? I think you need to do that for everyone, because a lot of people probably hacked but don't anymore, but they've got away with 100's of millions in silver..I hope your logs go far back.

Permanently ban and delete all characters on the account, just to guarantee all items accrued during exploitation/hacking have been removed. Also remove char and family names for others to use. Including reserved.

In my opinion.
