Hacker banned live on stream
I’d watch that Anime
This is my new favorite sub. Thank you.It is definitely a thing for free-to-play games, but there are two issues concerning it in general: (1) hardware ID spoofing, and (2) that it limits repeat-sales of a game and/or its in-game purchases. People who can afford to cheat can likely afford to (and will) spend money on the game--if not once, several times.
The upside of this is the corollary: cheaters tend to lose lots of money. See /r/vac_porn as an example.
I'd pay cash to watch a meltdown that good.
Their enjoyment stems from making others miserable/angry and they relish over having an advantage playing competitively while getting away with it.
It's effectively the same mentality you have for a single player game when you change the difficulty to easy or enable a bunch of cheats, but it's in a multiplayer environment. They don't care that the other people are real, they'll do whatever they want as though this instance of the game is only for them.
Is this a joke? It's free game and gamers mostly definitely shouldn't be able to get away with hacking in a multiplayer game and ruin the experience for everyone else
Interesting, I didn't know that. So a really rich cheater could just replace any hardware component and continue cheating. At least it will cost them.HWID is a hash based on the cumulative components in your PC. If you change a single component, your HWID changes.
New video card? It’s different.
New ram? Different.
Remove a pci card? Different.
No single piece of hardware actually gets banned, so buying used components from a banned machine carries zero risk of being banned yourself.
I used to a pretty decent FIFA Seasons player. From FIFA10 to FIFA14 I always reached Division 1.
