    Well the topic of this developer diary is a naughty word—the H word—H ****** - er… hacking. It’s something we at Mythic don’t often talk about openly, but we do take very seriously. It’s a very interesting subject that I’d love to talk in-depth about; it has many challenges and curiosities that make for an interesting discussion. I get a sense of joy when I know we’ve ruined a hacker’s day. Unfortunately, “fighting the good fight” is very cloak-and-daggers stuff, going back and forth, with the hackers and cheaters—so, to talk about it in great detail also gives information to the very people we’re attempting to thwart. Here’s my best shot at showing you a glimpse behind the curtain about how we handle hacking and cheaters without giving away too many of our secrets!
