They already updated their hack tool! Keep the BANS coming devs.
No they will still be on your friends list and the accounts technically still exist. The users just can't log in and get a banned until 2030 (some super-distant date) message when they try.
I'm actually also really glad they banned more hackers. I never understood why in all games people choose to hack in has to be an MMO.
Actually he makes a good point. Hackers and sex offenders should both be PERMANANTLY terminated. NOT returned back to society. Let them all rot away
Perhaps it'd be more effective if you banned people as you find them instead of in waves and let us know more frequently as opposed to a single ban wave every few months that only ever seems to come when we cause enough stink about it that it ends up on a MMO news site (Which the last few have). If that is indeed the case already, perhaps you should be more vocal about it with the community.
If I was a hacker and I wanted to bot, I'd be more hesitant to do so if I knew I'd be banned in short order as opposed to getting away with it for months on end, at which point I probably wouldn't even care anymore.
As a normal player though, one who regularly reports people like this, it would look much better in my eyes if I saw something regularly done about it. It is no secret this game, like others, has had its problems and it is less secret about how well the company's response has been. You guys might get some brownie points for a couple weeks on the issue but a weekly "Yea, we banned a couple dozen more people" thread would go over much better then one once ever blue moon with a few hundred names. It'll keep the issue more front and center so it doesn't seem to the normal playerbase that you guys simply don't give a damn.
Legit players see more action being done about it. Hackers are less incentivized to do it over a short term knowing they will get caught more regularly. Game is less screwed over by months of illegitimate play in the mean time. Win-win-win.
Also, it causes no end of frustration to sometime spend hours putting together detailed and blatantly obvious reports for support, that could be verified with a simple 5 min in game visit by a GM yet see those same specific people continuing to do it for weeks on end afterwords causing unknown amounts of player/market havok in the mean time. Why should anyone even bother spending hours of their own time on reports if nothing is going to be done about it for months?
It would be nice if you at least give us better tools in which to assist you with as well. A working in game report tool should have been standard at launch. Obviously the vast majority of these people use guille suits (why is this even a thing for people not actively flagged or participating in PvP?) to hide their identity so making flares last more then 5 seconds and in an area bigger then 5 feet so we can actually give you names and specifics would probably go a long way. Bonus points for being able to obtain them without having to spend rare reagents (Fruit of the Sun, that no one actively farms) or own loyatly to obtain then. You should be GIVING us loyalty to report them, not us having to SPEND our loyalty/silver to be able to report them.
Manual reports gets people banned, automated bans do not exist in BDO and thats been known for a long time. I give praise to you that you spend your time reporting people as you provide an essential service even though you shouldn't have to. But at this stage of BDO's lifecycle, its simply not worth PA's time to fix the underlying problems. Better to have publishers do occasional ban waves to keep the vocal player-base happy and placated while PA has record profits from their new ventures..
I got banned for "hacking" BDO while playing Divinity Original Sin 2 with a cheat engine table(that lets you have GM privileges in campaign to change loot spawns from the same spawns every time which Divinity OS2 allows you to in their TOS) because i forgot i had bdo "with my char idling doing nothing" sitting in heidel waiting for PS items to sell". Don't you think a botter or hacker would profession, or use it to kill mobs? Don't you think there'd be some insane kill count in a short amount of time? Or someone getting somewhere super quick? Do you think someone wants to hack a game with a 3500$ investment? No. The GM's reply even with all evidence provided on my behalf (including timestamps) the same copy paste answer because they don't feel like putting the effort in to look into it. This is why Xigncode is a failure. The only thing i did for money was spend hours at ogres, buy pearl outfits and sell them to enhance. But because I used something on another game entirely with BDO in tray, i lose a 3500$ investment.
bye felicia, good excuse, you are very unique with that one.
You know, not everyone likes to ruin a hardcore mmo by hacking. Sometimes mistakes are made with Gm's. However not reviewing evidence is for the ignorant. Esp when its a person who contributed for the server upkeep for over a year xD.
Rant: I also think ignorance lies in labeling everyone with any kind of program to change the game a bonafide hacker, or code specialist, my job is working on cars. Don't label people, so don't be ignorant.
This is for people thinking im renaming stuff to try to lie, just look at the modified date:
Heres also a link to said hack for DOS2:
I expect a witty comment to justify me hacking BDO with my "unique" excuse.
Also, sure, its just a "Story" ....Moron.
Its okay, I have more time to play DOS2 now, and less money to feed a P2P game by supporting it and its community. Sorry if there's less costumes up every sunday to the non-ignorant players.
you can get a bann for that when you dont set a ticket to supporter cuz you are supporting a botter when you dont send that to gm
Good to know all my hard work (rng/p2w) in this well balanced (lol) action-based combat (casual-based rng fest) game isn't being belittled by hackers. I would be very angry if someone had an unfair advantage through hacking in this completely fair game. /s
I actually got banned without any reason and it's honestly really frustrating to get people to even consider the possibility that people got wrongly banned.
I honestly was just browsing the reddit forums and saw that there was a ban wave and was genuinely happy that people got banned.
until I saw that I got banned as well of course.
I have nothing to hide, the only thing I've been doing for the past year is just afking and claiming daily attendance rewards.
also decided to level lahn to level 55 to get those rewards as well.
didn't use any macros or anything of the sort, in all my time playing the game I never enaged in any kind of pvp combat.
people don't really give a **** as long as some people get banned, doesn't matter if they were legit bans or not.
can I get a gm to review my account?
Ya hackers and exploiters that got ban and are making up stupid excuse for been losers
great job kakao, THX.
genuinely hope you get banned so you will feel what's like to be on the receiving end.
as long as people are being banned you're okay with this?
I have been playing games for 7 years online. I have never once been ban so keep wishing. I could care less if cheaters and exploiters get ban. If you think i have any sympathy you are very mistaken lmao.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'm so proud of you guys for actually doing something and listening to us! I'll be honest, I was expecting some minimal acknowledgement. But full acknowledgement and 738 ban wave? You went above and beyond this time. Keep up the hard work keeping our community clean, this is only the beginning.
If they are hacking in a simple game like "Divinity Original Sin 2" of course they will do the same in a much harder game like BDO! they will always find a way to get a hacking tools online and would pay for it. There's a saying that "Once a cheater always a cheater"
The amount of excuses these people have are ridiculous they are making themselves sounds guilty. Hope the GM keeps banning the abuser.
they think ip bans work xD i shall not be silenced!
