@HarmlessSyan said in Cheater during LQ (video in thread):
These hacks existed forever even in JP PSO2, don't think SEGA care or even can fix it since combat is so heavily client side. At most they ban the offending account, but according to your video, it's just a throw away PN account anyways.
Imagine the combat if it wasn't as client sided as it is though :3
I believe making this type of game have a lot of server sided ticks like in other games, making it laggy is why I'd rather play an offline game alone and multiplayer features when I'm a bit bored (Like in Monster Hunter) rather than raging for the crappy combat.
Luckily I haven't seen hackers on my ship on PS2, but I'm still salty to the RMT spammer bots.
I guess in the end, you gotta choose the integrity of the gameplay or the security of it... Which is kinda sad.
