Call me cruel, but I cannot help but lol at the first vid.
I know it is wrong, I know it is horrible ... but come-on, deep inside there is this dark desire ...

Does never justify the action. But still, there is something about seeing it that makes it awfully ironically satisfying.


Not really, I don't quite know how I'd be feeling if someone exploited the game and killed my character in a Horde city via 'friendly fire'. Yes it's a game, but I am a PERSON trying to have some fun.

Even watching a bunch of people die to this wouldn't amuse me at all. How is inconveniencing a bunch of people 'cool'?

Kudos to Blizzard, you might never stop all the hackers, but you haven't stopped trying.

Thank you for acknowledging that it happened. That's what most of us wanted. :)

I e-mailed the hacks e-mail with some info that I had dug up earlier in the day.

As with any exploit, we are taking this disruptive action very seriously and conducting a thorough investigation.


Then why is this:

Well... The people who were responsible for this attack are the same people who crashed the servers a few weeks ago and have been messing around with the game for quite some time now.

We need to be able to kill our own faction.

Kill the spammers, idiots, ninjas etc... It would bring some fun PvP back into the cities ><


EVE Online, baby. The more free and open a game is the more responsible people are.

How is an exploit anyone elses fault but blizzards? Isn't exploiting something the same as taking advantage of something that's all ready there? I geuss my question is how can some one be punished for useing something that was part of the game? Unless by exploit they mean hacked.


Hack - to forcefully alter the game's code, such as changing the in-RAM memory of the game, which is a popular way for speedhacks to work.

Exploit - to abuse a bug with the game's software and/or server. In this case, the exploits that mass-murdered players and NPCs was abuse of network packets, which are the bits and bytes of data that travel from your computer to the servers and back, to my understanding of the research from a few sites talking about this problem.

"Clever use of game mechanics" - World first 90. What he did was not an exploit at all.

For some people their only joy is ruining the fun for others.


Now ain't that the truth ! And I don't mean just the player's.
