  1. Given the complexity of modern games, they inevitably ship with glitches and vulnerabilities. Such is the case with Max Payne 3, which has a problem with multiplayer cheaters using invincibility hacks, infinite adrenaline exploits and more. Although most people areā€¦

    Hahaha! That's great! I wonder if cheaters can report bigger cheaters?

    Very clever. Let them eat their own.

    Great Idea!!!! OMFG!!!! Finally some form of justice!!! I hope this gets initiated across a whole ton of online games. Now instead of someone playing "Headshot the Noobs" while being invincible getting away with it, now they can just headshot themselves and their cheating compatriots. I really stopped playing online games, or offline games with online multiplayer. I got tired of the same issues popping up. No matter how soon you would purchase a game, there would be 20-30 ppl useing hacks or cheats ruining the game for the rest of us who choose to play fair.

    This.... Is a great idea. I only wish they would take it a step further and slap a special tag next to the user's names to rub it in a little.

    In all honesty, I don't condemn people who cheat. I condemn people who cheat against people who aren't cheating. I wonder if you'll be allowed to ellectively join the cheater's pool when you feel like cheating. That'd be great.

    I'd hate to be that first cheater. Until someone else gets caught, you're by yourself.
     
  12. ive been saying this is needed since the days of quake. glad it took 16 years for a game company to finally realize it.

    Excellent idea, although I would be interested to play in the cheaters pool to see what the games are like haha.
     
  14. Why are you calling them hackers, they can barely put together a vbs script or a batch ''virus'' ...

    Anyway, I am going to buy a hack just so I can face them. Setup the client for MAX fps meaning faster aimbot ???? profit!!!!!

    I like the mention of "invincibility". Can imagine hours of play wasted by cheaters trying to kill each other when both are invincible. I remember reading about a game in the last couple of years that spawned an impossible to kill NPC that then chased the cheater down in game and killed them. I can't remember what title it was though.
     
  18. A perfect idea rockstar.Let those cheater scums eat their own!!!.A great way to prevent ppl from hacking way to go rockstar!!

    I dare to call it a bad idea. This will only bring more cheaters. So what`s the worst if they get caught? Play another cheater? Sounds challenging. I`d do that. How about banning them for a year, second time forever, Rockstar? Give honest players some room to breathe.
     
  20. One f** good idea!
    Nevertheless, I hardly understand the comments above where some people show their interest to access this cheater restricted area. I wonder how fun it could be trying to headshot someone that cannot die...
    Secondly, the process seems very painful for the "fair" players. Expecting everyone to record everygame, analyse the replay and shoot an e-mail will never work, or so partially that cheaters will remain with fair-users-games. Can't they detect themselves the cheaters like Blizzard for SC2.

    Anyway, with a business model more and more focused on free-to-play games, the capacity of the Editor to exclude cheaters form fair users game experience is definetly a key success factor.
     
  21. "why do you call them hackers....


    .... I'm gonna go get a hack"


    Irony?

    Or worse! If you're caught a second time, you'll be stuck in the Cheater's Pool forever.

    @Arris I remember something like that involving some kind of massive scorpion that couldn't be killed and was really fast in a game released earlier this year I believe

    Right on!!! .....cheaters are what got me into Cheating. First thing I did is master glitching, then scripts and then .dot net framework written aimbots, etc. AND yeah it was fun for a while trying to get back at the original cheaters for getting me. But in the end it was all false revenge and more like I had become that which I hated the most..... a Cheater!!!

    But how did anything I did as a cheater ever make me better at playing the game? It doesn't take a genius to figure that out and I quit gaming online for just that reason even w/ consoles, you an't get away from CHEATERS. But..... if this works I just may have to start playing online again!!! ^_^
