“We introduce Gold Pack so we don’t have to go P2W”

March 21st, 2013 No comments

.. said Gameforge a year ago when they took over, yet here we are, downright selling AP in the shop. So we are both paying sub like a P2P mmo, get F2P sub-par support, and still they make everything pay 2 win for whoever has the cash. They lied from the start, but we all knew that :)

Bribes, corruption, and Gameforge

March 21st, 2013 No comments

If you play in the European server Telemachus you’ll probably acknowledge this legion; if you don’t, read on, this still concerns you if you play in Europe.

There is a legion in the asmo side of Telemachus, known by everyone to be cheating for ages from way back in NC, they use their own hacking apps to do all sort of stuff, like solo instances to get ench stones (they fly above the boss and kill it without even being hit, in any instance), glidehacks, noanimation etc etc; they are apparently mostly arabs from Dubai or somewhere in the UAE.

So, around summer last year there was a massive wave of unbans at Gameforge, every hacker they banned to date with tons of evidence was suddenly unbanned. At the time, 1 GF employee told me this was part of a new “2nd chance” rule, where all the offenders would be given another chance to redeam their evil doings and play fair after the 1st ban; yeah, a bunch of bs $$$.

So moving on to the present day, there’s the case of another well known hacker who has been banned twice (or more?) for clear noanimation hacks, both times “permanently”, yet he’s still roaming free again. Then I came by this conversation of a certain player with 1 member of that certain legion, who apparently seems to claim Gameforge unbanned everyone on their request or demand.

So what do you make of this? GF staff getting bribes? or maybe they explicitly give in to the cheaters so they won’t lose massive amount of income? I think the situation is very clear, has been for a long time, and this just makes it even more so. We knew all along.

either way, was also being whispered by EoD saying *** wasnt unbanned because of the video proof but because they took care of it, as well as another EoD just telling me “not everyone in here cheats” and “I dont care if they cheat

Ended up in explanation how only some of them hack, then how they are invincible even if they all hacked because they are all really rich irl and buy hundreds of goldpacks at a time and sell them for kinah ingame

  • Fixed the missing scroll bar in the Players DB/Hackers List window
  • Partially reintroduced hacker detection and telemachus list of previously banned and long time known hackers, most of which were given a 2nd (more like 200th) chance by corrupt European publisher Gameforge

Note that you can report Euro hackers directly from ARM, right-click on them and select “Send Hacker Report”.

  • Minor fixes.
  • Added support for TS’ Raksha (?) transform skill damage for US client.

This was initially done for the Euro client, thinking the skill name was the same in both clients, but it turns out GF in their crusade to kill the English playerbase changed also this.

Stupid GF name = Absorption of the Flame Spirit
Original US name = Flame Spirit Absorption

Claim your money back

March 16th, 2013 No comments

http://rainy.ws/2013/03/07/gameforge-mismanagement-and-abuse-extends-to-all-their-games/

[18:47:45] x: you know they still didnt reply to my ticket on tera?
[18:47:48] x: hope they all die

If this happened to you, paid for club etc and didn’t receive the items or any support, I strongly encourage you to take the money back. If you paid with VISA go to your bank and take the payment back, you can usually do that for 30 days after any transaction, or if you used paypal, start a claim and request the money back for not receiving the service.

Threats from Gameforge support staff

March 11th, 2013 No comments

A friend got me this earlier, he sent a report about a hacker, just to be threatened cause they are incapable of doing their job properly.

2013-03-11 - 02.42.23 ~ capture

^ What does that tell us?

  • They think there is a possible violation reflected in combat logs
  • But they either can’t check the server data or don’t want to
  • They will take videos which can be easily faked and edited before actual server data
  • They are unaware most noanimation hacks can’t be observed in videos

So my friend replied asking why they can’t just check the server logs with the timestamps provided and match the data, since it’s not feasible to have fraps recording 24/7, only to be threatened by the staff as they know they are in the wrong:

Gameforge mismanagement and abuse extends to all their games

March 7th, 2013 No comments

From a friend earlier, playing Tera EU:

[12:11:33] x: check when i sent the ticket, and im still waiting
[12:12:43] x: and our server keeps crashing during siege, but the worst thing is that a very important istance spawn only if the players kill some bosses, but you have only 1 hour do to it, if u cant do in time, no istance
[12:12:53] x: server crashes, we cant kill bosses, no istance
[12:13:05] x: people asking on forum, why the heck is this happening, do something
[12:13:05] x: and they ban
[12:13:09] x: and delete their account
[12:13:13] x: permaban
[12:13:20] x: 5 friends already banned just for asking

[12:17:35] x: i know many people complained about not receiving the items
[12:17:38] x: but srsly
[12:17:40] x: im still waiting
[12:18:02] x: tera club lasts 30 days, i have 18 days left
[12:18:05] x: still no items!
[12:18:33] x: also they said – its useless to contact support about that cuz “sooner or later” the items will be delivered
[12:18:47] x: but no answer at all?
[12:18:49] x: and omg

Let this be a lesson to everyone, don’t spend any money on shop items or club for any of their games, if you ever want a new publisher.

  • Added new command “.sortclear” to clear roll window.
  • Added alpha blending (transparency) to chat windows separated from the main one, there is a new slider at the bottom.
  • Fixed “on top” for chat windows.
  • Reseted the option to show URLs in the tray, now it’s disabled by default (annoying with gold spammers).
  • Added a counter for socketing and enchants:

You can also process older logs for this, clicking Yes when it asks if you want to process also the chat.
