We’ve all had experiences with hackers. And hackers ruin the game. Because of this they get vac banned or kicked from servers. I understand it’s alpha and i’ve been pleased with the dev’s ability to remove the more annoying hacks (loot through walls, walk through doors, suicide etc.).
My issue is when there is a person, or people, on a server who just dominate everyone. They are so good that everyone calls them a hacker. The admin investigates their accounts, watches them stream, looks at their FPS stats, hours played, competitive game history etc and determines they are either legit (or that there is not enough evidence to prove they are hacking). Is there a difference between fighting with a hacker who shoots with AMAZING accuracy and a legit player with AMAZING accuracy? The only difference that i’ve had is that dying to a hacker makes me angry.
What’s the difference between these two situations:
Getting killed and having all your stuff taken, over and over again, with no chance of fighting back by a hacker.
Getting killed and having all your stuff taken, over and over again, with no chance of fighting by a rust progamer.
I tried responding to a hacker by getting 5 good rust players together and attacking him at the same time. Because of abnormally good accuracy we all die and lost 6 times the amount of stuff.
I tried responding to a rust progamer by getting 5 good rust players together and attacking him at the same time. Because of abnormally good accuracy those who didn’t die ran away and we lost 4 times the amount of stuff.
As far as I can tell i would rather get killed by the hacker because I know they will get vac banned or kicked from the server than someone who shoots legit with 95% accuracy.
I’ve played against pro CS players and dying to them is not that bad because you get a new gun, new armor, in like 2 minutes. In rust, after dying several times to an amazing player i’m out of guns and armor and i’ll have to farm for a while, while getting killed by noobs because i have no guns and armor, to get the firepower to arm up several people to go die to a progamer again.
How can an admin tell if somone is:
-using an aimbot while missing shots on purpose (descreetly aimbotting) to shoot with 95% accuracy
-using nosway/norecoil/no arm move + crosshair to shoot with 95% accuracy
-a legit progamer shooting with 95% accuracy
