I see a lot of post about cheaters in this game and while yes I know it's a real cash economy game, every online game has some form of cheating. I see people talking about leaving this game and I ask to do what? Find a new game with it's own set of cheaters?

There is not just cheating in video games but in all areas in life. Sports is full of cheaters, the government has cheating politicians, doctors hand out drugs for kick backs from drug companies and perform unnecessary surgery to get that new boat they want.

My point is cheaters are every where and the best thing to do is not get down on their level. They cheat to win or for some advantage but the fact is they will always be losers. Don't be like them just do your best and know that you really are better than the cheaters even if it don't show it on some scoreboard!

Be the true champion and don't be a true loser by cheating. That's my 2 pecs worth, enjoy the game!

maybe every game does have cheaters but most companies have anti cheat teams, thats not the case in EU.

PCF is in no way representative of the playerbase as a whole. I think by and large most people don't give a shit. If you look at the countless "cheating" threads, it's typically the same voices.

The main people who do (and should) care about cheating are the people who have invested a huge amount of time and money into the competitive part of the game. I think it's understandable that if you've invested a lot of resources into something and a cheater steps on your head as they climb over you, it can be frustrating - particularly if the company that you are investing in doesn't seem to care.

Exactly! I have played many games on the side of Entropia Universe. Most of them had an anti-cheat team or even efficient program that would analyse clients in real time. Even back in 2005-2010. Punkbuster anyone?
Real money is involded, so like in a casino i'd expect an anti cheater/exploiter department, who basicly are available at all time to witness and take action against exploiter.
But as it seems the automated tasks are backed up by MA themself with available ingame macroed spamable features..
Zero punishment for the use of third party software.
Some players got items from official linked sources, how about some infos tips...
Who cheats ingame? The players or the officials allowing this to happen? Who gets the most profit of such situation?
There is a huge lack of professionalism imo.

Cheating goes both ways.

Look at it from an invested player. The company cheats the players by not enforcing their own TOU (terms of use) statement.

MA makes a lot of money from EP gambling so they should re-invest that into stopping cheaters

I like your philosophy

Every game has cheaters not just EU so just suck it up.... so its okay if for some reason or another I manage to cheat you out of your winnings? and then its also okay for MA not to enforce their own written TOU/EULA

I think you will find that most of the complaints are not just about the cheating but the lack of enforcement from Mind Ark.

Yes there are cheaters in every game but some games enforce their TOU/EULA's to the letter and without mercy, and others that don't? die....

Most of the "Complaints" are seeking action from Mind Ark to get off their fat (three letter word) and do something.

In entropia the cheater do not cheat the game itself, no wonder they are doing nothing about..
The cheater gets money that a normal player will not get and likely is what he lost.
Cheaters may actually be profitable for the game owner because it forces the loser to introduce more funds into entropia universe.. this may sound as sneaky as that..

And? We all have deposite. I have played many games on the side of Entropia Universe and never see game devs or a company that was that much afraid to do something or support the players.

For you its ok that in the game cheater geht more and the dont get a bann, for you it is ok that MA not hold his promises, for you its ok that items get nerv and losing few hundert or tausend dollars Peds, for you its ok that nobody helps you with problems, for you its ok that MA trys to tries to take your money wherever possible, for you its ok that the game is boring and you have not content, just only grinding. Go on play it, waste your time.

i dont do it anymore, i wait to get my last payout and after that i let delete everything and play something else. iam tyred of this shit and the way MA communicate with the community, this is disrespectful and nobody deserves it.

It's missing two things here :

Your withdrawals and the total value of item in your account.
Otherwise, these numbers are pointless.

Period.

not much to add here. im on the same route, after playing (up to lvl69) from 2006-2011 and returning a year ago grinding up to lvl 85.
mindarks behaviour got worser than it was back then when marco behrmann tried to ramp up this game with his yella yella.

im covering a C-level in a multinational company. believe me, if our management would behave this way we would all get fired BIG TIME. its us, the addicted fools that allow them to strech the boundaries everytime a little more. this incidents that only arose in the time since i came back last feb make me sick and kills all trust in a company.

this game could be so much more, make so much more money while making its customers happy. you just have to find concepts. but why should they. we are addicted and as long the critical (addicted) mass is depoing, why the f*k should they do something? this whole thing got very psychological and i bet ma has more psycs on the payrol than devs (at least the poor tech stack they offer would proove that)

oh well. spent already too much time writing this. my items are sold, my ped will be blown away (in no time as we know). only my trusted viceroy (fuck you soulbound shit) will stay on me when they delete my row out of their database (or is it a flat file? who knows)

so long

And? We all have deposite. I have played many games on the side of Entropia Universe and never see game devs or a company that was that much afraid to do something or support the players.

MA seriously needs to step up. This is not a game because of the RCE and it should be treated that way. It is absolutely unacceptable for MA to pretend it's not serious. On our parts, it's stupid.

Cheating isnt gonna go away. Especially not in a real economy game where you actually can make some money cheating.

Most part of cheating jn this game is probably to get an edge or exploit something. I do belive MA has mesures taken to see if all of a sudden someone making huge ammount of cash or all of a sudden goes plus every single hunt,mine,craft. At least i hope so.

When it comes to exploit i do belive MA is allways gonna be a step behind. Its impossible to anticipate every single thing in an online game. Allways gonna be exploits and bugs. What MA CAN do is to make exploiters, cheaters regret they ever did this bad thing. Up the punishment a bit make it sting to do the bad thing :D

almost every gaming company (also AAA Studios) have to problem of cheaters. sadly its in our nature. but the difference is, they actively hunt the cheaters down and ban them for life (ofc. cheaters always find ways)

thing is, in this "game" it costs my, and your money. imagine such situations in real life. you cheat, you win, you get cought, you get punished. not here, you wont get a punishment thats suitable.

so the opposite happens, ppl see that cheating here is some kind of "business model" and carry on. because they know nothing will happen, besides a xx days/month ban, where they use their second avatars.

Reading this and other treads I must state the obvious: MA has a serious communication problem. I hope they address it rather sooner.

Banning has absolutly zero effect as ppl create other accounts. That is a well known fact. In a perfect game world no one can or will cheat. But thats not gonna happen anytime soon.

Funny thing is..... in other games i played where cheating has happened and the Gamecompany has suffered whit loss of income they have even made server resets (not that i recommend that in EU).

Seems to me when MA suffers whit enough loss of income they will take harder action.

Me personally dont play whit serious ammount of money in this game anymore. Mostly cause im dirt poor atm. But im never gonna do any hard hunting as long as this exploits happen again and again.

banning here would have an effect, because the amount of time and/or money to build up to competitive levels takes relatively long. its not like you can compare a cheater in COD MW to a cheater here. here in entropia cheating ALWAYS gives you an monetarian advantage over others, be it through direct exploiting or dirt cheap skilling.

this money they skim is partly MY F*KIN money. and im sick of seeing ppl that fe. have exploited the "yog bug" globaling and hoffing over and over. im just sick of it.

signal from MA to all other shady beeings and cheaters: come here, its easy to skim of money from the honest players. and best is: you dont get punished that hard, baby :girl:

We may never know the true reason why cheaters gets to roam so unpunished in Entropia.

What would the Domino effect be to ban one? How corrupt is the elite of depositers. You can't ban 1 and not the others.

Not saying that the elite of depositers cheat, that anyone thinks like that. i am just trying to find logical reason why you dont just outright ban or atleast execute some kind of punishment on cheating. Its such a serious matter

I am old enough to know there's a reason behind every decision.

A statement on why, and why not enforce this and that would clean up the conspiracy theories in favor of all :eyecrazy:

I see a lot of post about cheaters in this game and while yes I know it's a real cash economy game, every online game has some form of cheating. I see people talking about leaving this game and I ask to do what? Find a new game with it's own set of cheaters?
As already stated in this thread most games are heavily regulated with Anti-bot software, reporting systems and measures to make sure the game is in fact fair to play. They also make sure to keep an eye on resources and the economy in many of these games and make adjustments to keep the game economy stable.

I have mostly been playing WoW since April and it's nice that Blizzard takes a strong stance against botters and cheaters. Especially in competitive play which are perma bans.

Just recently 74,000 accounts in WoW were suspended that were abusing automated features to farm resources and destabilize the game. Blizzard even commented on their actions and stated how why these measures were taken. Again that is communication and something that MA should try better at. Blizzard makes their mistakes too as company as now it is really Activision but at least they really do take game play bugs and cheating seriously.

The article from Blizzard on the bans if anyone wants to read and be great if MA would eventually do something similar.
https://www.wowhead.com/news=316511...ve-gameplay-blizzard-suspends-over-74-000-acc

I do love Entropia but where is the economy balance team? Where is the anti-botting cheating team? Why is it so hard to get cheaters/botters banned? Why is there such a lack of communication about these important issues?

I log in here and there but I just can't take this game seriously or spend massive amounts of time/money in it when SOOOOOO MUCH is just unregulated and not communicated.

If nothing changes then nothing changes and that doesn't bode well for a dwindling player base that looks like they had enough. The only thing that needs to be done is for MA to make official statements and actually do bans and also perma ban cheaters in events. That is what other companies do to build trust for a fair and competitive gaming experience. MA and Entropia should have a higher standard against cheating instead of having basically none at all.

World of Warcraft is estimated to have 88,346,220 total players or subscribers.

World of Warcraft is estimated to have 2,517,867 players per day this month.

From these number we can see that banning 74,000 account is probably a lower % of what Mind Ark bans or skill reset based on the Entropia Universe population.

True, and so it lies on the depositing users of this service to prevent the cheaters from earning money.
First thing would be to never ever buy anything valuable from them. No Event Item which they bought with their tokens should be ever bought by anyone so they can not reimbourse their investments and withdraw them.
OK they will use these items but when they never ever can sell them for thousands of dollars they can not withdraw it. When in the next Event they use their weapons and cheats to win another item they cant sell it either and so on. So in the end they cant sell all their items and cant withdraw the money and the risk of loosing it all gets bigger with every cheat they do as MA notices that their WIN WIN System with the cheaters does not work anymore to force others to deposit big to buy the items from the cheaters.


If MA does not react we have to act and hurt them where it hurts them the most when they cant sell their valuable items and withdraw the money.

World of Warcraft is estimated to have 88,346,220 total players or subscribers.
That isn't anywhere even close to remotely true. I have been playing WoW since TBC and it peaked in their WotLK expansion in Q3 of 2010 at just over 12 million subs. Then the subs have been dwindling every year since then due to many changes where they had less than 2 million subs recently before the launch of Classic.

From these number we can see that banning 74,000 account is probably a lower % of what Mind Ark bans or skill reset based on the Entropia Universe population.
Completely untrue as you obviously aren't well versed in WoW or Anti cheating methods in games. First of all this is one ban wave and banning 74,000 accounts in one wave is indeed the majority of the cheaters/botters. You are also missing the point. They do strategic ban waves to actually catch the majority of players that are indeed breaking rules with exploits and cheats. In order to fight against cheaters you must have strategic plans to keep the game safe. So with that said......

Where is the strategic ban waves in Entropia?
What are the strategic measures to ensure safe and competitive experience in Entropia?
Where are the perma bans for players that cheat in events?
Where is the economy balance team?
Where is the communication on these matters and plans moving forward?

The fact is MA isn't trying and they aren't even close to having good regulations in place or methods to keep botters/cheaters out of Entropia. When MA can actually answer the questions asked above and we start SEEING ACTION taken against the massive botting/cheating problem in Entropia. Then MA can begin to earn trust back from the community. Which they obviously have lost.

I don't make up the numbers Sir.
As you can see WoW is ranked #1 of all MMO's

https://mmo-population.com/r/wow/#:~:text=World%20of%20Warcraft%20was%20the%20world%27s%20most%20popular,day%2C%20with%20a%20total%20player%20base%20of%2087%2C563%2C573.

Entropia Universe is ranked #86, unfortunately.

Yes you do. You went to some site that has bogus/irrelevant numbers because you don't play Blizzard games obviously because if you did...... you wouldn't post such ridiculous made up numbers. You lack experience in this area and it shows and are trying to google your way out of it :laugh: So your information is bad and then ontop of that you are deflecting without addressing anything that was stated in my post. Although the community really just wants MA to address it since they are the ones that need to step up.

I already told you the facts that indeed at the height of WoW they peaked at over 12 million subs. This is indeed an indisputable well documented fact that happened in Q3 of 2010. I will post it again for you and my thread. Please read it carefully and when MA actually decides to get a team together to fight cheaters/botters/exploiters is when Entropia can have a fair competitive community like other games have. Entropia and MA are far behind the curve in regulating their game in comparison to other games. This is another fact.

Please place an emphasis on the questions asked. Also please don't just do a random google search on a topic that you obviously don't know anything about to spit out made up numbers that aren't true to support you biased agenda whatever that is. If you aren't helping to make this game a better place for the community then you are part of the problem.

This game has the most botters/cheaters/exploiters of any game I have ever played in my long gaming career. That is a problem and I hope at some point my support cases get answered. That the community pleas for actions against cheater/exploiters get answered. Lord knows there is plenty of threads on it. That there isn't silence from MA on fighting cheaters and we actually have the massive amount of cheaters banned from the game. MA has to raise their standards a lot just to be where other gaming companies are at in regards to cheaters/exploiters.

Thanks Abomb

PS - Again please stop focusing on made up numbers and focus on the actual issues at hand.
