yep, that was my pointThe best thing you can say about it is at least they are funding FD. To the tune of 15 minutes of developer time....
As i noted earlier in the thread, one hardcore cheater, upon getting 10 accounts banned, said he might have to slow down on the cheating a bit...
true... but in the early development video there was going to be a special mode for people who liked to play that way (hell mode)
i have to concede it sounds almost as funny as whiners whining on gankers, but it definitely pales in comparison with random chaps defending frontier's anticheat policy. it's akin to worker's class voting far right without the dire consequences cause, you know, it's just a game. epic.griefers griefing cheaters and cheaters cheating on griefers doesn't sound bad to me.
I still take umbrage with equating the two. But whatever...that's what solo is for.Never said they did. Still, griefers griefing cheaters and cheaters cheating on griefers doesn't sound bad to me.
That's very commendable.When it comes to taking actions against accounts we have identified as using cheats, we review every report on a case by case basis.
Even though we are only a small (not supported) group, please remember us Linux users and Proton. Now that Elite is running so well on Linux, it would be a shame if we were kicked out again because of anti-cheat measures.While there has been a level of discussion regarding these cheats within the community recently, we can assure people that the number of people using these are a very tiny number of players. We are still working on new and improved ways of stopping these cheats and tracking and measuring activity now and in the past.
We strongly advise that no player runs Elite Dangerous using a cheat client, hack, software mod etc as this will put your account at risk now, and in the future.
True.i have to concede it sounds almost as funny as whiners whining on gankers,
Yup.but it definitely pales in comparison with random chaps defending frontier's anticheat policy.
Indeed.it's akin to worker's class voting far right without the dire consequences
cause, you know, it's just a game. epic.
So Fdev are handing out permabans for the trainer. That's good to see."I didn't use any of the unsafe options ever and my account was just permanently banned. Guess that trainer needs to be updated"
Latest post from the cheaters forum,FD's actions as permaban are not rare
There is a difference. Using an exploit, that has been reported multiple times during beta phase, but made it into the live version anyway and being left unfixed for a year. You could have probably argued it was left on purpose, because every money making exploit was being closed within a matter of days or very few weeks on the other hand.Remember the engineering cheat/exploit 1 material tier 5 god roles. Frontier would punish those players remove all engineerd equipment, ban players. Havent seen any of that .
Frontier havent done any thing against those cheaters.
I have never seen perma-ban this way...They're being executed by hired assassins.
