Having played rust for over 200 hours, most of that time being on East Coast 3, i have been killed by countless hackers, to the point where if i had the money i would buy another copy of rust just to kill the hackers. But some hackers are good hackers, doing exactly what i would do, which is help the legitimate player and battle the other hackers. When you have white hackers keeping the no life hackers in check it evens out the playing field. But i only wished their were more of these white hackers on official servers. Even though hacking is still wrong.
What is your opinion on hackers who solely pray on other hackers? Do you welcome them?
I also cheat on my main account but I think the benefits of having me in a server are more than the disadvantages: I just use the ESP to see if someone hacks, if he doesn’t, I don´t go towards them and I make like I didn’t saw him, even if I know he will problably kill me. If someone cheats AND harms other players, I record it and send it anonymously to the server’s admins. In my opinion, hacks were not made to screw other people, they were made to have a boost on the gameplay (mainly for those like me who work a lot and can play the game for a short time) and to screw those who screw with hacks.
PD: English is not my main language so I may have made some mistakes
All this ridiculous and childish rationalisation about “hackers” is infuriating. Also, hacker seems an overly generous term for every pleb who downloaded something that an actual hacker made. If that actual hacker was a “good” white hat hacker then they probably wouldn’t rush out to make lots of money out of it. The hackers do not create something amazing and new with their coding talents - they pick a popular game someone else put all the risk into and leech off that.
Don’t play games with the rights and wrongs of it. This is unhelpful and muddies the waters. Fuck hacking douchebags. It’s that simple.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Hacking is hacking, there is no excuse to do it. If I find what you call a “good” hacker on my server, they will be banned just like any other hacker. VAC, CheatPunch, and the upcoming EAC will handle the hackers. No one wins if you hack.
