Hello fellow rust players.
I am here making a pointless post asking you to help me understand hackers.
For some time now I have been talking to hackers, watching them, being friends with them and so far I have no clue what is their goal with hacking.
Some say it is fun to do so, some say I’ts because everybody hacks, and some just because of their lack of skill.
But I am not here for that, I am here to find out what is going through their minds while they are doing it.
Well here is what i think: Just like in real life there are people who can’t live fair like everyone else, they want to show dominance, they want power and so they do such things in illegal ways (robberies, murders etc.) or they simply want to escape reality, so are there in video games.
there are normal people who practice, work on themselves to get better, and there are some who are the definition of not giving a shit about playing fair and just want to get there as fast as possible, most of them are just mad
because they are unskilled and they want to escape reality by using cheats (drugs, alcohol irl) and it makes them feel good about themselves, until they get caught by anti-cheat software (police irl).
But these things don’t last long, so they need more, they become addicted and need stronger cheats (stronger drugs) and so they become addicted.
Some of the better coders keep making updates so that they can’t be caught by anti-cheat and they make people pay for each update (drug dealers change spots and make you pay for every single dosage of drugs) and then,
there are big cheating communities (drug lords) and they make tons of money by selling cheats. The obvious mistake people make is banning the users (drug addicts-consumers) instead of going for the source-the coders (drug lords and dealers) and when 1 of them gets caught others start laying low for a bit until the heat goes off, and the hacking scandal begins once more.
Other kinds of hackers that are not using them to escape reality, are the ones trying to get “better” and try to go pro (so do sportists with steroids) but they also get caught when they reach those official tournaments and get checked
There are admins who hack, but nobody can do anything about them since they are the ones who are supposed to ban (politicians who simply leech off of the country) and enjoy being corrupted forever, laughing at us peasants who play on their server.
and finnaly, what i think are the worst ones, the griefing cunts who are simply enjoying watching other people rage in agony just for the shits and giggles, and who are the people like them in real life? Murderers, rapists and such, who are enjoying watching people suffer and beg for them to stop. Eventually these get caught too but you don’t quite hear about them on the news, since those are just citizens murdered and raped, it’s not a sporting tournament ruined, you don’t hear about some random guy getting banned, you hear about KQLY and such people since they are more important for hacking in the official tournaments than some random citizens getting beaten by hackers.
Thank you everyone for reading this and making this far, this is what i think about hackers so far from my point of view, please respond to this thread if you agree or not, and if so please explain why and as always, sorry for my bad english
