Sony Online Entertainment's The Matrix Online has released a brand new version of their feature, The Other Side of the Looking Glass. This time around, it's a conversaion about exploits. We can't print it all here, but if you follow the link below, you can read it all!
An exploit is generally defined as something a player does that isn’t allowed by the rules of the game that gives that player some type of advantage or allows the player to do things in they game they shouldn’t be able to. If the exploit makes it possible for one player to have a big advantage over others, the exploit is considered particularly serious.
There is a system defined by the game rules that already makes higher-level characters more powerful than lower-level characters. And players who know the game better than others will have a different type of advantage over those with less experience. This is how the game is supposed to work.
Things that work outside that system are considered unfair to those who don’t work outside the rules. We do our best to ensure these holes don’t exist, but in hundreds of thousands of lines of code, they’re likely to appear. Therefore, we have to work with the Customer Service Representative team do deal with exploits when they come up.
