General Discussion: Hackers in Corsairs Stronghold
I get that it's Sunday and EME is out of the office, but come on, hackers are running rampant in Corsairs Stronghold and reporting them isn't doing anything. There needs to be a team of security mods that can handle these situations on a 24 hour basis. If your game is 24/7 then you should have at least some staff 24/7.

People walk through gates on weekdays.

For clarity purposes, could you say what you've seen people doing?
View post on Tera forums#4 Zoknahal08/20/2017, 11:16 PM
Bet they got memeslashed.

I've seen three different things today in CS:
1) People Injecting through gates.
2) People meme-slashing
3) People Injecting to the top of ladders.

Its getting worse by the day, they need to step up the monitoring and response time.

isn't it cool when valkyrie in idoneal armor and lvl 64 avatar comes to rally and memeslashes the boss and gets rank one solo. as well as few deathwrack boxes... EME wake the [filtered] up, you're gonna lose your playersbase cause of cheating trash. it lasts too long and it went too far.

They're hacking BGs (yesterday in favor for their 'friends if they ended up in the same team - of course they wouldn't queue together in order not to seem suspicious), they're winning Civil Unrest for guilds, they're exploiting HH. While the Valk(s) in question will get banned soon (and find a way to come back anyway), the people who exploited the contact to them will remain untouched. The whole server knows what's going on here, and nothing else will be done about it.
EME is probably reluctant of banning too many people, but they'll be losing way more players if this goes on like this... even if they spawned 100 Melditas to compensate.

Well, those melditas won't last long!

EME was manning up, @Noesis started it, and what community did exactly? How supportive they were exactly? and those which were supportive, how well they were treated exactly?

I wonder how many people can actually run VSH, HH without using such 3rd party programs, maybe that is the case behind all that rage, all that crying, name callings. let them hate me more, but If Community want EME to step up, then they needs to react to them 1st and then expect EME to act against these people harshly.

there is so soft approach, they were in the right path, you community is to blame not EME. Also that stupid BHS.

The community freaked out because Noesis made it sound like EME wanted to ban people for UI mods and using dps meter.

I feel like the community is sick of EME and BHS and what not because the game has been [filtered] and laggy forever now. It is to be expected.

Can't say I'm surprised....I hope they ban more people.

People do this in every single game. There are people who are going to always play dishonestly, and then those who will as long as the risk is low. Considering people had been getting away with it for so long those in the second category simply joined them. Tera could be perfect and it wouldn't change anything for those in the first category.

Banning people won't do anything as they can come back and they will keep coming back with more tools/cheats than ever before. I mean, ban them? Sure! But hey, they create another new acc etc and then, back where they left. With just different name.

Will at least slow them down. Part of why they do it is because nothing happens by doing so, they don't even get banned or warned so why bother?
Searching for a solution sure is what should be done, but meanwhile at least slow them down, or win them on persistence, I cannot imagine someone making tons of new accounts every time for the sake of hacking, at one moment they'll get bored of having to level a character to get to the point where they'll be hacking. Even if they use bots, they would get tired of waiting for the bots to complete their stuff overnight or such so they can go back to their toxicity.

Reporting and creating awareness is a good start, but I think if you want something to be done about that particular incident, then you might need to provide some physical evidence (pictures/video) of the said hacking. Expecting mods to be on patrol 24/7, is expecting too much. Even if you would somehow get a group effort going on and get the entire raid to report them (which I doubt happened), who knows how many player logs where submitted before yours. In other words, being on call 24/7 for every-single-report, is not something you should expect. EME are not going to hire a equivalent amount of mods, based on report numbers. Nobody does that.

That being said, I think that you are correct about how not enough is being done to prevent these things from happening. Ive even said that myself in various other threads. Though, contrary to popular belief, I believe that the wheels will keep spinning, and the sheep will keep grazing. People keep saying that this will kill the game. No it won`t. Hacking/Injections happen in other games, yet, most games seem to live on. Gotta be realistic. Interestingly enough, people make so much noise about BGs and PVP exploits, yet, seem to be content with other things. I`m not an expert, but I think that in Tera there are probably more PVE related Injections, then ones meant for PVP (CS not being the most sought after). Just my two cents.

Edited: How the heck I typed No, So. My popo brain I swear.

I remember when that was going on, and the community treated the ones that were for banning hackers like we were wanting their family dead or something. they cried, made petitions, cried, threatened to quit , cried more, hated on the ones supporting eme's decision, cried, then bought stuff on sale. you were bashed, I was bashed, all because we tried to explain to the people that eme wasn't targeting people with mods, they were going after the blatant cheaters that you could see in game. I found it funny when the main protesters that claimed to have 100 people boycotting the game , wound up not doing it and buying from the eme sale lol.
eme's position on 3rd party use has always been in the terms of service. they may have let some things slide, but the official position , the legal position, still hasn't changed.
if they did start banning all these people and those people came on here to complain or on discord, then there would be another post with a 100 or more pages long crying about people getting banned for adjusting their graphic card or something.

today i took part in my 1st CS in more than 2 years. idk about hackers but ive clearly noticed that its much more laggy than 2y ago. 14-18fps with constant micro-stutters instead of smooth stable 26-30fps. well, maybe its because of hackers who add workload for servers with their software

they banned someone who's put more time, effort, blood, sweat and tears than the current majority of the EME staff into this game because of misuse of their work out of their own hands. they banned people who genuinely care about this game and its success and betterment and for what? BGs are rampant with people abusing exploits to no end, got valks out here solo farming HH, every server is being harassed by an endless slew of bots, etc. dang their work sure was a success!!

but sure, keep talking like you actually knew what was going on and aren't just gargling EME's nuts.

im not whiteknighting anyone. im just saying you so-called grown ups are crying over a game....a game. maybe if you got a life/girlfriend/or whatever else adults do in real life, then you wouldn't be bashing kids all day.
