Our speedhack detection is disabled at the moment as we're addressing the last remaining issue with it (inconsistent timing of buff expirations vs movement updates screwing with results). Otherwise, it works fine -- it should be (back) up very soon.
As for players, well, it's alpha. We aren't after players at this stage; we're after testers. Not a lot of people actually care to sit down and test & report things voluntarily.
We're actually fairly content with the number of testers we have who have volunteered so much of their time to help us improve the server, some of whom have gone the extra mile and went out of their way to figure out how to reproduce issues that've lingered on the tracker for too long.
Thanks for clarifying!
Right now our skill checks are pretty thorough -- and stable! -- so behaviour should be pretty good. You also should not be able to abuse skill cooldowns/cast times as easily as you would on any other server, as I guarantee we're the only server to accurately enforce them.
Having said that, we do need to go refine and enable another couple of major checks which may affect most projectile skills. More than likely that'll need a day or two of refining but it shouldn't be as much of a widespread problem as the cast times were.
The important thing to remember is that alpha is really just a public testing ground for the server. It shouldn't be considered any more than that; we're using it to assess feedback on all sorts, and plan to have all of our server-side cheat prevention implemented and fairly thoroughly tested before beta launches. Breakage at this stage is normal, though in truth it happens very rarely -- and really only when it's anticipated (e.g. speedhack detection, cast time checks, etc).
I hope you'll hold off any serious judgement until beta; beta is where we expect things to be in a much more presentable state. Not to mention properly advertised -- for people who want to focus on playing!
People fail to realize IT IS AN ALPHA lmfao
KEY WORD GUYS, ''ALPHA''
Let me google that for you
In the definition of it you can see 'software' but obviously this is 'game development'
Come on guys, really, why in the hell compare alpha to officials?
