Game is a fucking mess, and I suspect most of those 2 million registered accounts are not actually playing anymore.
The game places a huge amount of trust in the client application which allows for some pretty ridiculous cheating that goes way beyond just your typical teleport hack.
The game is almost like a comical parody of what a sandbox game could or should be. The one guy I know still playing is only playing because he gets a good laugh out of seeing the ridiculous bugs, exploits and outright cheating and how liberally they are utilized in PvP.
Here's a screenshot
of a bunch of Korean-named mobs killing people. Why is that unusual you ask? Because those aren't supposed to be there. Someone summoned them in using packet spoofing. From a code standpoint, there's zero excuse for why that should be possible.
And this shit runs rampant. You can give yourself buffs, remove debuffs, etc. And supposedly Trion cannot fix it. They are reliant on code drops from the mothership in Korea for this stuff, and they are on a significantly older patch of the game than Korea.
It's an unmitigated disaster.This comment was edited on Oct 3, 2014, 10:30.
