Очередное новостное письмо от разработчиков Darkfall Online оказалось почти целиком посвящено ситуации с читерами в игре. Девелоперы сообщили, что небольшой размер команды не мешает им бороться с недобросовестными игроками, так что баны тех происходят почти каждый день. Что касается общего состояния дел с читами и эксплоитами, то и тут в DF все в порядке, а разговоры об обратном были названы неверными и вводящими в заблуждение (из-за чего часть забаненных и пострадала, решив получить «кусочек счастья» на халяву).
The shop will be open today again for a limited number of copies. This will happen at 3PM GMT.
Second, having to do with support requests: If you see your support request priority is low, it doesn’t mean that we’ve classified as low, it actually means it was handled immediately. Requests are currently prioritized by order received. New requests have a lower priority than older ones.
Concerning cheating and exploiting: We’re banning some people almost every day but the problem is minimal to say the least. We’ve also been working on addressing the issue at the source as time permits.
Most of the people getting banned are confused by claims they cannot be detected because we have a small team and won’t dedicate resources. Trolling posts on this and other forums and videos on Youtube attempt to create the false impression that cheating is rampant. The logic behind this is: everyone is doing it, and so should you. This couldn’t be further from the truth however.
Most of the people posting about cheating in Darkfall aren’t even playing the game and are doing so to create an impression. The only way to really know what’s happening in the game is to ask a few players you know for a fact are playing how many times they’ve seen people using exploits since we started banning for it.
We also get reports by players in the game about other players exploiting. In most cases the players reported hadn’t been exploiting, in others a lot of people are reporting the same one person, or repeating what others are saying.
The only reason we are addressing this matter is to protect Darkfall players from getting banned by using these programs. We permanently ban all accounts using exploits. It’s sad to have to ban someone who just bought the game, but we don’t warn, inform, hesitate, or explain. We do this to protect the game and the players. The fact is that if you’re using third party programs to exploit, it’s just a matter of time before you’re banned.
Thanks for reading,
The Darkfall Team
