Firstly SEGA doesn't handle accounts Microsoft does
Bit of a brain fart there. I'm sure Sega has some say in the matter though, it's their game.
Second If by some chance they do manage to steal someones xbox information Microsoft has very easy guidelines and systems in place to get your account back on top of very strict security when comes to handling account information.
And yet they refuse to unban people from the game who happen to be in the vicinity of a hacker from what I've heard. Or was that just the Japanese version?
Third if they could hack into people's accounts they would have done so already cause guess what people link to their xbox live accounts to pay for xbox live their credit card.
Who's to say they don't? There's no evidence either way so neither of us can claim we're right here.
Why hack an account just to make a bot to sell gold in a game? Why not just take the credit card information leave the account as is and take the user's money?
it have to be done manually in the end sense this game is an action combat system with randomly generated maps so designing a bot that can dodge perfectly and navigate randomly generated maps would be literally impossible. I can't see a single way they could design an AI program intelligent enough to level it self with this game. It not like other MMOs were you tab target and enemy than press 1,2,3,4,5 to use attacks. An determining the exact x,y,z coordinates to navigate through the map would be impossible when the map layout is completely different 100% of the time.
Well, it's certainly possible it's manual, I have heard that there are places in China were people gold farm as their actual job. Whether the farming is manual or not is kind of beside the point though, they could still use these accounts for goldspam.
