Ahhhhh, my first thred. (man, less then 24 hrs and already have a ton of posts and a thred :coffee:. im addicted. Kinda like smoking :smokin: you do it because everyone else is but then you cant stop you need more and more....) But to the point, It has come to my knoladge* (my spelling is not that great. I have 4 yrs of summer school to back that up, but also a diploma...interesting) that most of the highly skilled playeers of the avp2 world have ben accused of cheating at one point or another, but why, is it the peoples own insecruities or lack of self esteem. who knows. What I do know is that it happens more often then I would like, and it spreds. Once one person mentions it everyone in the serv is on your case. even thoes doing better then you. Its a new epidemic, and must be delt with but there is no way to change the oppions of fools. Argue with a fool and he may be doing the same to you. So whats the score here whats next. do we leave the serv never to come back cuz some dimwit dosnt like it that your doing better then him....... It even happens on my own serv. I could boot them, but i would rather mop the floor with there disembowled boddy untell they get sick of it and leave under there own will. Is that how they all must be delt with. I think we need a name for these people(like nOOB is some one spamming certan weapons) If so what will it be. I dont have the wit to come up with any thing good that would stick but maby you fine people do. well lets here some sugestions and feed back on this issue. It maby bigger then I think, and maby not. It could be because I havent slept in 2 days and its 5 am here. but anyways lets find a way to deal with it. and if we just have to put up with it, so be it, they will learn the pain of accusiton soon enugh PS: isnt the first to blame the one who is usaly at fault!?!?!?
Happens all the time. People assuming they're the shit only to be stomped all over by a better player. The shock of the loss rattles the cage of their ego and they have a tendancy to kick off. :uhm:
I don't think any new name should be applied to these people. It's a natural human 'pride' issue arrising from lesser experience in the game. U don't see seasoned vet's moaning about good players being cheats do u? Nah, not really (unless they really do have a personality defect). I think it's just one of those things u have to put up with until they gain a wider perspective on things. :rolleyes: Still...I can understand ur point. It'd be nice to be recognised as good rather than being called a cheater. :nodding: BTW, the subject of "being accused of being a cheater" has kinda been covered in the the "stupid hackerz" thread.
True, maby another name is not needed. I think we all know this type of player, and I guess we just have to put up with it or kick them out if its possable. Also I have seen something a little diffrent then the speed hack, THIS MIGHT BE EXPLAINED BY LAG It was a corp that wasnt moveing to fast as to where anyone would really notice but I thaught something was diffrent and it turns out it was true. they wer going about 4 or 5 steps faster then everyone else. I couldnt catch them with light pred (witch I could catch anyone else) maby its just me. I didnt say anythign because it might have ben lag but who know. maby some cheaters are getting smarter and down playing it so not to seem cheating to everyone but still trying to get that advantage that there skills cant get them. If any one else even know what im talking about witch might not be but ohh well.
I have added a pole at the top, just wondering if I think this is a bigger problem that it really is.........
well it is a problem, but not the biggest....my problem is when someone named "V" is flying around in the depot's night sky and sniping aliens down, and the aliens cant reach him and when they try they just die on the electric fence......hacking is dumber than unprotected sex......... theres way to many problems plauging this and other games....ppl cant just play, rely on their skills and get better, have fun, make friends....no they must accuse or cheat, or spam..etc...... really ruins the game...
Sometimes by the n00bs
I suppos its not that big a deal. but certantly annoying. And what is with all this barcode stuff, I first seen it 3 days ago and sence then I have seen it 4 times. I got something to let me tell the diffrence but cant get rid of my normal arial font :( When someone joins with it Its kinda obious they have something to hide otherwise why would you need it.......... the last time I saw it the admin kicked everyone out, talk about ruining it for every one:(
Due to my experiences in the past (when I used to admin for my old clan server), I discovered that barcoder's are infact not human! They are infact a sub-species of the "Locust". By hiding their identity and only haunting non-[D] server's, they move from room to room as a plague - destroying "fun" and "sportsmanship" as they go. :furious: These day's (since I've got the chance to run [D]), I don't see many of them. As u would imagine, if ur planning to ruin the game, it's best not to choose a [D] server. :lol: But when I do, more often than not I'll just boot them straight out again. If they log into the server with a barcode it means their standard name is barcode. This in turn means they're up for causing trouble - as standard. I have very little respect for people like that so I just remove them (at least until they change their name). :nodding: NOTE: *X-LR* Darharhar mentioned some details on changeing the base font type (to help eliminate barcoder's) in a previous thread called "Barcoder's" or something. It might be worth looking back through the threads to see if u can find it. :deal:
if i dont get accused once a day at least i consider myself a failure.... anyway i found out today that some people i knew still consider me a cheater lol after 5 months of not bein able to play they still call me a cheater....
LOL what a bunch of sad cases, cant hack you pwn them :p
