If a user disconnects their internet they can kill other players without being noticed. then plug back in.
- Legacy ID
- Unable To Duplicate
- Make contact with player/s 2.
- occupy player with loot or just get him to stand still for a second
- unplug internet NIC and have your way with the player. Axe/Pick/etc..
- Quickly plug back in.
If this worked you could get cute and wire up a Staples Easy Button that calls a command to basically toggle the default route on your PC on and off. Quicker than unplugging the cable or disabling the card, and requires no alt-tabbing.
Hopefully it doesn't actually work like you say, though.
The best way to avoid cheating like this (unplugging the cable or turning off wifi) is:
- the server needs to kick directly a user who has no connection.
If you can kill someone when reconnecting while you were not connected before means that the KILL command is saved somewhere in your RAM.
The server needs to REJECT all commands from a client once he was disconnected. This could fix the problem.
If legit then this is not good at all. (I have no doubt it is not though)
Hopefully we will see a fix for this ASAP.
AS Paper26 says it has to be an flaw in the memory of some sort that makes this possible.
Shame that people actually vote down this...
A true evidence that many out there have no interest to get a hack free game.
I don't see a place to make this private, only my comment.
But this sort of thing is not new, and has been done for years.
I myself did not know about it until someone showed me.
I hope this gets sorted out.
Very sad that someone has to use methods like this to play a game.
It shows low human value, and horrible game skill.
