So whats up with EAs zero tolerance policy?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by imported_dukarlo, Feb 24, 2008.

  1. If EA has a zero tolerance party with cheaters why are the same speedhackers still skipping around despite repeated gm pages? I cant seem to get the GMs to do anyhting but send me a canned message. It seems to me this zero tolerance policy is just a blatant lie by EA. If EA is trying to say these cheats cant be detected should I just start using them to?

    You are just imagining things.
    All cheaters have been terminated, their credit cards burned and they are blacklisted from any other mmorpg ea will ever do!

    Though if some cheater wants to return they will just find a way, especially for a company that lives from getting paid.

    Though I have to say EA makes on effort to keep players out with buggy webpages!
     
  3. I think EA Mythic has a zero tolerance policy on their zero tolerance policy

    most of the speedhacks are not possible for EA to recognize so they cant ban anyone as they cant prove it.

    Well my guess is that they're going after the folks making RL $$ first, then fixes for house placement cheating and I would expect the code and GM fixes for PvP cheats will follow that. If they don't appear from out of nowhere. Anyone who continues to cheat is quite honestly the dumbest of the dumb.

    If players keep reporting these cheats, the GMs have more info to help the devs patch in fixes, and they'll realise that this issue isn't going away until action is taken.

    Well the same was said about the folks whose houses burnt.

    There have been changes made to address cheating and more are planned. That says to me action is coming. Keep reporting, keep the pressure up and the fixes will come. What you don't want to do is say "nothing will happen" and not make those reports, as said cheats would like you to do.

    It also helps to keep the issue visible here, as has been done with the Luna shops.

    What I don't understand is that I was in the fire beetle cave and I didn't want to run all the way out on foot with my super dragon in tow so I hit the help stuck option and it prompted me to enter a description of the problem so I just put the word stuck and I got a reply from a GM saying that he checked an I was able to freely move so he would not interfere with my game play and teleport me to the town I chose. I have to go on foot and ended up being killed before I got out. Kind of lame they crack down on the use of the stuck option but they do nothing about the pages when it concerns people using scripts and speedhacks. [​IMG]

    Some characters are just bugged and cannot use stuck sometimes.

    I am of the opinion that EA doesn't have the ability to catch them. Otherwise I think they would.

    yeah like EA can really afford to terminate their few paying customers. Cheating has if anything been all but encouraged lately.
