devile in your opininon is there any clann os security sistem that could help this game to be free from cheaters i mean ffs i agrre that osme can bypass the xtrap but i seee aoubt 10 macroers a day,... nothing has changded for me, xtrap might be better but still it isn't good enought
I think Xtrap is pretty much perfect for this game. Might sound contradicting, but the problem is not Xtrap, its K2. Trust me, u give WoW administration to K2 and they will make it look like a piece of junk in less than 2 weeks.
K2's approach against cheaters is WRONG and I have been telling them that for months. They keep fighting a battle the wrong way and they will never win it. They are improving, but taking a long time to realize they need to change the way they deal with cheaters.
For example, Xtrap detected and blocked KOXP with the patch 2 days ago. COOL! GREAT! FINALLY! 24 hours later, new version of KOXP that bypasses Xtrap. Sure, they got quite some ppl banned but MOST of the cheaters knew already that KOXP was detected so they didnt play. 24 hours later, servers were full of macroers again. That race wont be won by that dumb approach of patching everyday and blocking instantly the hack, TELLING THE HACKERS the hack is detected.
What I've been trying to tell them is, LET THEM HACK, dont block the hack. Dont waste your time blocking that in real time, patching everyday. Just take note of who did what. 2-3 days later, ban them all. Authors of hacks will go nuts looking for what is triggering alarms and since they can't get instant feedback and wait 2-3 days to see if they got caught or not, the developing cycle for hacks increases. A hack that is not updated soon and gets ppl banned frequently, dies.
I know this will mean than there will be lots of low level accounts created on the same day macroing all over since cheaters wont care if they get banned or not, but guess what? WHO GIVES A SHIT ABOUT THEM!? Whats more important? a guy who gets lvl70 macroing all the way or some dumbass who collects Kekuri rings? Low levels can't farm big stuff, meaning that won't effect much the economy neither the server, and if it does, they can for example remove Kekuri ring from Kecoons drop table so they can't even get that.
Bottom line is, no high level will risk their character using a hack, meaning the end of most hacks.
Everytime a hack goes public, K2 should secretly update their anticheat and detect who are using it. Days later, drop the bomb and fuck them all. Will u risk your main character doing using any hack knowing it can be detected at any point and u wont be able to notice before u get banned? Even hardcore turk cheaters will think twice before using hacks.
But no, K2 is too smart to figure this out ...
and not to forget most of the "cheaters' they ban now happen to be 100% legit people, good job zzz[/b]
