Possible Cheat/Hack?

Post by TonyTheSlayer » 24 Apr 2011, 06:21

Yesterday I decided to do a FFA match with a couple of my friends, and one of them brought in someone that no one knew, not even the person who brought him (stupid, yes - and he got chewed out for it). :?

The settings for this map were:
3v1 (All of us versus "that one guy").
High Power Levels.
No scavengers.
Distance fog.
And took place on the latest verison of War of Sand Dunes. viewtopic.php?f=10&t=7605
I had base 3, and my friends has bases 1 and 2. The "other guy" had base 0.

Approximately five minutes into the game, one of my friends had lost connection and left the match, leaving it as 2v1. I was scouting for oil at the time. It was about 10 minutes when I reached the bottom of the map to make only one oil derrick, when I was attacked by three Mini-Rocket Array Python Hovers and was instantly killed, both my derrick and my truck. :shock:

I didn't think this was possible. O_o

I asked how he got those units so fast, and his reply was that he has the tech-tree completely memorized. :stressed:

I didn't want to deal with the possibility of a hacker although I was still skeptical of whether or not he was cheating, so I faked a crash. :annoyed:

But now I'm wondering for real, is this possible cheating? :hmm:

I want to know if anyone is able to recreate this incident by any means necessary, to manage to create three Mini-Rocket Array Python Hovers in less than ten minutes on this map when at base zero. I had tried this myself and was unsuccessful, for I had only just finished researching Cobra at ten minutes. :augh:

Good point, but I want to make sure that if this wasn't cheating, I'd better get good at learning to rush like this! :lol2:

Right. :roll:

Playing 'master' builds is a better idea, and playing with people you know/trust is even better.

There are just too many people who abuse 2.X in MP games.
At least with 'master' builds, it is easier to tell when you start going all out of sync.
and it ends here.

Yes, MRA Cobra hovers can be created in just around 10 minutes in case of crazy teching. Not sure how much longer does it takes to get pythons.
