Revamp: Should we allow purely online cheating games?

Post by Marcus101RR »

Multiplayer and Single Player Games
Do NOT post any tables, trainers, or code for PvP (player vs player) multiplayer games. And any complaints of griefing/griefers with use of tables will result in them being removed and warnings/bans issued to the poster(s). Lets share something we enjoy and not ruin something others enjoy.

Revised

Single & Multiplayer Cheats
Do NOT post any tables, trainers, or code for Online Multiplayer games. And any complaints of griefing/griefers with use of tables will result in them being removed and warnings/bans issued to the poster(s). Lets share something we enjoy and not have an advantage over something others enjoy.

  • Any game that requires Online Service, thereof, must be connected to start, and play.

  • Any game that is an MMO that requires a login to authenticate service.

  • Any game that has Player vs Player competition and/or leaderboards.

  • Any game that stores Server-Sided Inventory or Data that isn't present on your personal cloud service (Steam, Epic).

Do NOT create or solely use Cheat Tables on Single Player games that can be played online to have an advantage over others.

To Elaborate,

Single Player games may contain online portions like the following:

  • Call of Duty Series

  • Monster Hunter Series

  • Borderlands Series

These are example of games that are an exception as "Single Player" is the trump card, if the game contains Single Player and follows these boundaries, it is allowed:

  • Can Single Player be launched Offline with/without internet connection.

The result is, if the game contains anything else such as Login Authentication, Online Service, Requires Internet you cannot play the game offline nor Single Player as it requires you to connect to either Server Environment or Service. However, should the game let you progress to Single Player without this and inform you that you are not online or connected, it is allowed.

Examples of Allowed/Not Allowed:

  • EAC (Anti Cheat) -> Has Multiplayer -> Has Single Player (Offline) = Allowed

  • EAC (Anti Cheat) -> Has Multiplayer -> Has Single Player (Online) = Not Allowed (Requires Active Internet Connection)

  • Has Multiplayer -> Requires Login Service = Not Allowed

We should probably add to that, if the game stores your single player data on the dev's server then that's a definite no. We don't want angry devs coming to us and making us not able to host cheat tables

The following bullet was added, revised, and improved on in order to ensure no misunderstanding with what online cheating is.

What about Idle Champions? The devs there don't care if we cheat as long as we aren't screwing/lagging the servers.

Developers are not the same as the publishers and owners of the servers, unless it can be proven those servers are part of the developers. Thing is its a violation of the law to manipulate server sided information on the fly, aka sniffing packets. It could hurt our reputation as much as the author of those cheats.

It is to protect everyone.

Remember, code can be used maliciously, by anyone, we can't control their actions, but we can control the distribution and the fallback. A mistake we don't want to end up doing unlike FRF.

The Astroneer falls under the definition.

I don't think it is good idea.
