Blatant Cheat Reported

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Radun, Dec 20, 2008.

    I was shopping near luna today and you would never guess I saw one guy casting necro spells, fizzling, so i guess training necromancing.. lo and behold he summoned a wisp to make his mana regenerate more, and then later i saw him in liche form to make it regen even more! I can only imagine how much more skill he's gaining using such 'techniques'.

    I immediately paged on this fellow, without hesitation. I won't tolerate this type of blatant exploitation of game mechanics in my game. devs you better get right on making a fix for this one, pronto.

    Pretty sure that trolling is against the RoC...

    are you serious? wow....you really are crazy, are you not! The Devs are never even going to consider this a "exploit"! I can not believe you are considering it one! If you were smart, you would do the same thing to increase your necro skill.

    Serious? Nah!

    Trolling, attention seeking, whining because someone paged on him because he was necro training... maybe getting warmer *shrug*

    Aye he is using necromancy spells while raising necromancy to increase regenerate rate,that is clearly wrong!!
    :)
     
  7. It's absurdly stupid threads like this one that waste the dev's time...

    i know!
    radun, you speak to my soul.

    it is completely unfair for people to be able to have that much regen while they are looping their marcos or scripting!

    devs, please fix this!!!!

    radun, you are a jeanyuss!

    If he was AFK then I can see where it would be illegal.
    Am I missing something, or is it perfectly legal to cast wish then lich form????

    Before you paged I hope you checked his armor to make sure he wasn't also using alot of mana regen stuff, that would be 3 totally legit things to complain about. Oh no maybe he was also training inscription.

    Ok, and the cheat is what exactly? So he summoned a wisp to regen mana and went to lich form to get even more mana regen. Sound legit to me.
    Necros have been able to use lich form with summoned wisp since necromancy was available. You see, we necros are smart when it comes to legit training ;)

    P.S. I can't tell if you are being sarcastic, but I am hoping you are :D
     
  14. Sometimes I think some players would rather just have a cheat code they could enter and become straight 120 in all their skills.

    Forget starting at the bottom and working your way up...start at the top and work your way sideways.

    Is this thread a joke? Exploit? Using skills to help train other skills seems pretty legit to me. Rather than policing the game, why not go out and have fun or train your own characters?

    LoL I think the poster is trying to point out the crazyness of players when they believe everything is a cheat. Hes not serious but hes trying to see who actually would agree with what he posted to show the illogical nonsense that goes on. If he was actually serious then there would be also something wrong whith his head but i dont believe so in the tone he presented it he is just doing what I just mentioned. For those who did agree with it well that may tell you something about youreselves lol.

    i agree. i am one of those players.

    it's why people go to college... so they don't have to "start at the bottom".

    i guess i had a cheat code for life. RoXXoRs


    "#1 reason to quit a game: being forced to pointlessly grind a skill that is required to make another skill you had to grind work"


    anyway, i AGREE again. mana regen is not right! and wisps aren't either. in fact, MANA isn't right. i saw a guy using mana to throw fire at me... now, that's a cheat. throwing fire at people.

    You must be friends with that moron. We all know the OP was serious.

    Actually, it was just to see people react to the word 'exploit' being used properly as per The Queen's English.
    There's nothing wrong with exploiting the game's mechanics... that just means you're 'making use of'...
    Yes, I noticed the mood after I posted, and thought it was fitting as well.

    I love jokes where those who don't get it are the butt by default... as long as I was one who got it. Gee, I hope I don't get marked for 'trolling', it really was just a joke.
    Lighten up everyone, look what I can do!

    So you post a meaningless thread accusing people of exploiting the game.. page a GM.. and you knew you weren't right? That should be against the ROC.

    Radun Guest

    yeah, no really, I was the only one I saw working necro, and nobody paged a gm.

    - Ahh, another 'boy who cried wolf'.
    Exactly why I didn't reply until now, having read this earlier...
    So, what does the Queen's English say about the term: 'blatant cheat reported' - yeah, okay. Got it.

    (Of course you did make it pretty clear you were either misguided or playing people with a simple tune, when you neglected to mention this skill gainer was either unattended or breaking the rules in some other way, in your original post...)

    Just because I like to look things up, to learn more:
    Merriam-Webster's English says:
    Exploit, verb, definition 2: to make use of meanly or unfairly for one's own advantage <exploiting migrant farm workers>
    English can often be a fork-tongued language.

    Thank god it suppose to be a joke. But the problem on your half is calling it cheating in the title when it clearly is not cheating. But did you seriously page a gm on the guy? Cause if you did, then that's just....dumb. Wasting the GM's time with a page on something that is not illegal and perfectly acceptable when a real page with a real issue could be dealt with.

    really? what better way to make fun of people that call everything a cheat, and go around playing make-believe police?

    Posting accusation threads is not making fun of anyone. You're saying people were exploiting the game.. then saying you weren't. You only make fun of yourself.
     
  31. Radun

    Radun Guest

    .. it's all about the context... how could anyone do anything meanly to the game's mechanics? or be unfair to the game's mechanics? they would need to have feelings for it to fit with that definition.

    remember that one time the most ******** post appeared on stratics and it was deleted.
    that should happen again. soon
    really

    Pfft.. Yes, It is literally making fun of myself. Who was accused? I already told you I was the guy working necro.. if I was actually accusing an actual person of anything, it was only myself being accused. The ironic thing is that I agree with your point of view, entirely...
    you just can't see that right now, because it's not what you expected.. that's what makes it irony.

    You were called out and failed.. deal with it.
     
  36. Radun

    Radun Guest

    I'm pretty sure the only thing that failed was your attempt at a 'calling out' for my having paged on someone, while I had already stated that I was the very guy in my post working necro.
     
  37. Sweeney

    Sweeney Guest

    What exactly did I fail at calling out? I said you posted a new thread based completely on a lie, you agreed. I said you're story was full of crap, then you admitted it. I said everything you post is trash, you didn't refute it.. there is nothing more to say.

    Quit boosting your post count with lies.
     
  38. Radun

    Radun Guest

    nice totally fraudulent post. every statement in that last one was, in fact, a lie... and evidently so, to anyone who reads through...

    No you didn't, and no I didn't.
    That didn't happen either.
    I told you that you can keep those comments to yourself, and I'd count that as a refute.

    you left out the part where everyone else talked... for a more accurate read, shall we just scroll up the page and see 1st hand? Did you have a point of your own, or did you just want to reinforce mine?

    !keep it up and i'm going to freaking page on you!:pancakes: haha

    Heh, Radun, I'm really very anal, and I got the joke. :)

    The original post was such a caricature of your average UHall whiner that I can't believe any of you fell for it. (Wait, it's beginning to make sense now.)

    At least it's more on-topic than the hairless santa thread.

    That's almost as bad as when archers use hit chance increase to get an unfair advantage against mages in Player versus Player combat! It's an outrage! TO THE STAKES!
