    posted a message on THUD got hacked?!
    Quote from Zero(pS)»

    Lots of players supported some THud features, but most agreed that the "maphack" aspect of it hurt the competitive part of D3 (even though some people really defended that too). In the end, in most discussions, people were divided about whether or not it could even be considered cheating.


    In the end, in most discussions, the cheaters defended their cheating. No reasonable argument was ever presented that THUD in any way was not a cheat.

    Nope, any program manipulating the game is a cheat, regardless of the users preferance of calling it UI modifications or addons.

    There are indeed different kinds of cheats and cheaters. But most of them are admitting that they cheat and willingly take the risk.

    But the Thudders deny this, they justify it (mostly to themself) and are not willing to see it from any other point of view.

    Its not that any legit player do not understand the cheaters desire to use such programs.


    This is just like when a couple from cloud9 got caught using aimbot/wallhacks in the OW beta finals, it "only" made their "skill or game" better.

    That a widespread cheat like THUD gets stopped this way is only adding some more integrity to the game.


    How developing the most rampant cheat has affected his real life (KJ), is just the results of his own choice. He decided to go hack diablo3 to develop a cheat tool, so he more than deserve every flame or sleepless night he got for it.

    Best news since the banwaves :) Hopefully the creator of that cheat keeps it down this time.

    posted a message on Group play is really bad in d3

    Just no. There is no good reason that "support-class" exist. That class should be a balanced dps, who just brings those buffs which now labels them as support along with their dps.


    Bringing a barbarian "only for Battle Orders & Shout" in diablo 2 was in no shape or form same as bringing a support class.

    posted a message on How to disincentivize botters?

    Weekly ban waves whole season would do the trick :)


    Just Blizzard have to take actions against not only the botter, but against all the different flavors of cheater.

    "Enjoying real life" = Letting a computer play a game you dont enjoy anymore, then go troll fan forums of that game...


    None takes a cheater personal or serious, its just internet is so full of miserable souls trying to spread their misery.

    posted a message on Open Letter against Botting

    All the diablo games has been about the loot or gear (and slaying monsters for it).

    This grind is what seperates the ARPG from MMOs (like any casual could grind mobs anywhere for the best (Mythic) gear in a MMO.)

    Botting has been a problem before paragon levels and isn't tied to those directly, but the Paragon-level do give somewhat of an indication of whom may be using such cheats.


    The odd part is why those who sign this want other cheats to be treated differently.

    "Please punish the obvious cheaters (botters), but don't punish the other cheaters (thuddders)."


    The Warden software can and should flag any who use those well known cheat programs.

    And Blizzard should ban them all, there is no good reason to let some cheaters go unpunished.

    I wish I could blacklist everyone that just leaves public GR as soon as they die or feel they won't get as carried as they would prefer.

    posted a message on Witcher 3 got runewords

    Runewords, with the d2-model, was very awesome indeed.

    Sadly Blizzard did not parse the feedback on them properly, and they chose to not implement them in D3.


    The problem in D2 was how they were by far the most powerful gear you could get. (a balance issue)


    They neglect how the runeword system provided a "long-term" goal to work towards, and with that added some longevity.

    Either this is just to satisfy the need for instant-gratification for the facebook-generation of gamers, or the D3 devs share their views.
