WoW Mods and hackers targeting WoW players to sell their account credentials have nothing to do with each other.

 

 

Players are hacked not from anyone thing or place, most players are wise enough not to

fall for obvious phising emails, but hacking is big business & their means & motives are not

limited to the obvious, i remember some websites hosting game guides & mods infecting

the visitor mearly by entering the site & not just downloading.

 

A lot of pirate software these days comes modified with dormant malicious files speciifcally

to evade the initial obvious detection, the days of a old obvious pop up virus are long gone.

 

To belive otherwise is naive to say the least, not all guides & mod sites are there to help

I would have to say WoW. It delivers what it says it will deliver.

Really?

I remember Blizzard promising player housing...

 

Although Blizzard generally do follow through, they still fall short like others from time to time.

Considering they have been a high profile target for a long time maybe Blizzard should

 

use some of their mass fortune & work with the AV companies on protecting their

product & customers better, the fact their authenticator isn't doing the job says a lot.




The authenticator is an excellent, low cost, non intrusive solution. If players are not going to take the paranoid measures that are necessary to surf the internet these days, then no amount of effort on Blizzard's part is going to protect players though.

One thing they could do is require a cell number, and text or call players whenever they log in to make sure the player is actually trying to log in. They could even have an app that does it so the player can just hit a button that says, "Yes, it's a real "login". That might do it for a little while.

 

I agree it is down to users to be more savvy about protecting their PC & virtual property etc.

 

But still those same users should not have to install mods to play a game, before you say

"they don't" maybe not so much these days but mods were needed (in vanilla especially)

to make up for the lack of features come to expect from most other mmo's of the time or

even previous to WoW.

I hope every MMORPG made for consoles dies a horrible death, losses more money than any other games in history, and generally just sucks. Maybe then devs will stop trying to design derp fests that are completely designed for the lowest common denominator so that "hey we can put it on console!"

 

 

haha +1

Regardless of all the above, it doesn't help when the likes of forbes start doom mongering.

I stopped taking notice of things like this it does no good as do a lot of forums including

this one, to much doom mongering & talk of evil devs & their quest to ruin the world.

 

Is it any wonder some games fail before release?

Im not saying this game will be an exception but still for an article to be titled

"Predicting Biggest Disaster of 2014" what sort of an article is that?

They should be ashamed tbh, it's all headline snatching bs

Before WoW i never had phishing emails aimed at games

i wouldn't go that far

i had phishing emails for Everquest preWOW

 

Fair play, but WoW's popularity made it a victim of it's own success & this type of thing

escalated, along with chinese farmers etc

Is anyone surprised?

I mean the game launched with the most basic UI ever & lacked any depth of options,

so few you could count on one hand, in fact the game didn't even have a timestamp in chat!

In comparison to previous mmo's at that time such as SWG with full UI customisation & an

options menu deeper than WoWs crafting system to date.

 

Im not surprised players welcomed mods, yet i always thought this was a bad move, i mean

firstly you have to consider security of the user via the sites the mods come from, plus the

mod itself, but the fact that game code can be fiddled with was alarming enough for me to

start with.

 

Im not saying mods are the cause of this virus, but Blizzard's laziness is/was shocking for

allowing mods in the first place as this is an potential security hole, but players needed

mods to make up for their slack work, any MMO  that requires/allows 3rd party mods etc

is poor imo, but with the money Blizzard make it's a complete joke & is not surprising when

things like this happen.

 

i've never been hacked as im not dumb

Originally posted by LoverNoFighter

SWG pre cu.

Still after 11 years head and shoulders above any other current MMO.

 

For the reasons above & that nothing since comes close by a long shot.

 

Funny how some people mock SWG, yet 99% of mmo's since have cost WAAY more & lasted a

fraction of the time, than this early pioneer still regarded by many as one of the best mmo's of all

time regardless of it's arguable issues.

Everything seems to point back to SOE. Seems to me it was a business decision based on the fact that it wasn't worth the cost of renewing the license. And since they are the only ones that have the actual numbers I'll take them at their word when they say that it was time to end the game.

SOE did not destroy galaxies, lets make that clear right now, i am not fan of SOE whatsoever but

the fact is they made one of the most innvovative mmo's of all time (argue all you like) the fact is

it has one of the most hardcore followings & one of the oldest, they made a game that could of

been so much more... that aside it was LA that ruined the game with the push for the CU & NGE

as LA WANTED MORE SUBS LIKE WOW, PLAIN & SIMPLE, typical LA greed.

 

Why would SOE ruin their own game? they had a few hundred thousand players, which fell

almost overnight with the 'WOW' style CU/NGE changes to the game, you only have to look at

SW:TOR & it stinks of NGE/WOW similarities.

 

The funniest thing is SW:TOR subs started plummeting after the 1st month & kept on falling

even with their BEGGIN MAILS & FREE MOTNH OFFERS! ...it will last a fraction of the time

SWG lasted & will have zero hardcore followers...

Is a new game, not even a MMO. Battlefront 3? maybe?. 

It is a new franchise so if it can be Battlefront 3, then it can be SWG

The New Franchise could be SWGs F2P marketplace, with loads of NEW items to buy for the game and your character.

Your sheer amount of delusional hope is just..awe inspiring.  I almost want this to be true just so I can imagine the GIGANTIC smile on your face like you got everything you ever wanted on christmas.  There's something so naieve yet innocent about your reckless abandon of reality in lieu of this insane, irradiating hope...

What I fear is that when they announce the truth of the matter of the 31st, you'll need medication and a 24 hour suicide watch however.

 

Its so sad when someone makes a post with an assumption or a hope that it will be something

a lot of ppl may want, yet he gets flamed by so many ppl for it, this only proves how fucking sad

this site has become with negative trolls who have nothing better to do than to abuse someone

for the smallest of things... the guy only said "swg returning?

 

...ffs u lot need to grow up & stfu bitching

Well as many ppl have said there worse ways to go out, plus how many ppl have died watching

TV exercising etc...

 

When i was playing SWG (pre-cu) i used to do 44-50hr sessions most weekends for about

1-2yrs!!! never did me any harm!!!

 

The point is, when you hear of these rare cases ppl always blame the game!? obviously these

ppl have health issues!

 

im not the only person who has played games for stupid lengths of time without sleep & we

haven't died... ppl to quick to blame the game... he made his chioce Blizzard didn't tie him up

& force him to play for 72hrs

 

**EDIT**

Sry if that sounded harsh but im sick of the world pampering ppl & clamping down on

everything & screwing things up due to the odd case like this, it wont be long before

they time lock your game or net connection... the big brother control state is coming...

 Its not a wow clone per se. Its just a term that people use for 'omgyetanotherthemeparkgame' games with publishers afraid of losing money on possible innovative/non-standard things. 

 

so its not a wow clone, its just another themepark game and to make things worse, its using the name of worlds biggest and proably most famous sandbox single player series. To me it comapares to something like... they make a Fifa Online game thats not about football but basketball, with fifa's name on it. its that weird :P

 

edit: the game is everything that its single player series arent. Thats its biggest problem, and thats what all this fuss is about. It wouldnt be that bad if they used some other IP, but people who play and like TES like it for what is it.  Last thing i want to play now is another wow/swtor with different skins.

Or maybe less people are using Xfire? I don't. I've always thought Xfire is the worst way of tracking MMO populations because not everyone uses it. It's irrelevant.

Noone uses it? It says 20.000.000 accounts registered and currently there're 130.000 players online. That IS A GARGANTUAL SAMPLE SIZE, in terms of statistics. This is far more accurate than any "election estimates, which are made on 1.000 sample size". Xfire operates at maybe 0.02% deviation,  it is as accurate as mathematics can be. There might be a discussion about what sort of players tend to use x-fire more often than others, but for what it is, it is extremely accurate.

How on earth can it be accurate, when only a percentage of gamers use it!?

 

Not a single person in our TS/Guild uses it, so it can never be truely accurate unless

every gamer used it, simple.

 

**EDIT**

Oh & it's also irrelivant how many user/accounts their are, i guarantee a large percentage

are inactive or dead accounts.

EA 

/sarcasm off

/wish they would die in a bad fire

 

LOL m8 as do many gamers.

 

I would even resist the tempation to p**s on them, as it would only shorten their pain.

 

Even if a buyout happened, would any of the following improve at EA?...

 

  • Product Quality (decreasing quality of content & increasing amount of bugs)
  • Customer services (currrently rude, unhelpful, zero tech knowledge)
  • Treatment of staff (has to be the worst employer worldwide)
  • Treatment of customers (EA's attitude towards customers etc)
  • Saturation of franchise (one expansion after another, cash shops etc)

 

I doubt it...

The fact is regardless of who buys a company this, the likes of EA, SoE, Activision & all the

other faceless giants, are here to make money... THATS IT!

(before you say it) i know thats what there here for, but in any other industry, they would

have gone bust a long time ago, they don't even try to produce a quality product anymore,

its just the least they can do for maximum profit.

 

I own my own business & i will take a hit on profits to use better quality materials & offer a

better product & service to my customers as i take a pride in my products & services,

although i am still in the business to make money.

 

EA & other giants have lost sight of the fact that they, like any other business sell proucts

to make money, but you have to take responsibility for the product (which they don't)

If i sold my print & sign products with spelling mistakes of faulty electrics etc...

I would go bust PLAIN & SIMPLE.

 

A lot of people are just plain stupid to say "NO" & just refuse to pay for their shite.

One day they might actually get the message if enough people stood by their opinion

instead of just moaning about it.

 

I know they have us over a barrel as the industry is monopolised with greedy giants

so it's a case of out of the frying pan & into the fire most the time, but we have to do

something to stop them, ruining our beloved pastime!

 

They didn't win the steaming pile award for nothing!...

LOL They even beat the banks who put us in a global recession!

I still say it is worth a purchase long as you don't plan on it being anything long term past two to three months. Least for me it was.

Unless your main focus is PvP.

Two to three months? I didn't last two to three WEEKS! Once you hit the mid 20's you realise you've seen everything you're going to see, only the locations are going to change, plus the story if that's something you're interested in. Which I wasn't. Because it wasn't a story. It was basically the wall of text from other MMO's just spoken to you, while giving you the illusion of choice. There is no choice, none of your conversation choices matter, nothing you choose to do matters. It's not like a Bioware single player game where your choices affect the world around you, they're simply using the same cut scene method as from those games.

So you're left with a massively multiplayer game which is neither massive thanks to instancing or multiplayer as 95% of the content is soloable, with Bioware choices that aren't really choices. It's like watching a movie where after every scene you're forced to perform a mindless task for ten minutes before they'll start the movie again. But it's not really a good movie either. It's B movie standard. With poor acting.

Ah, got that off my chest. Don't waste your time with this game. Seriously.

 

^^^This^^^

I cant remember why i stopped playing LoTRO, looking at this post makes me want to re-sub :)

Some really nice screenshots in here for a 5yr old game :)

It's this sort of talk that brought P2P & otehr such BS gaming models to our beloved industry,

These "ideas" came to life & IMO are destrying gaming, P2P is actually more expensive

than buying a retail box & paying a monthly sub.

 

All your doing is thinking of ways to screw us over, you should work for EA!!!

As I replied in a post above (after your post though), MMORPGs have very little money/game hour compared to single player games. Grinds of some sort are often ineviteble. 

 Not everything is fun in MMORPGs and companies are already giving us several options to avoid certain grinds and this would just be yet another option. You don't have to use it unless you choose to!

 The poverty situation in China is not so good and while you may think that the income from selling powerleveling is low, it is actually significant for many people over there. 

 As for breaking ToS: illegal powerleveling breaks the ToS, but legal ones would not break them.

 

Actually China is the fastest growing nation & their economy is one of the strongest in the world,

their manufacturing costs are rising fast, your attitude towards giving them money to grind your

characters beacouse you think they live in poverty is woeful & you need to do some research

first before quoting such nonsense.
