How has Nexon done nothing to crack down on the hacking that is going on right now?
If you have an account in Bera, hopefully with a HT Rock, go to Road to the Mine 1--it's one of the maps leading to the Verne Mine in Edelstein. Tell me, what do you see? Go through all 20 channels, what do you see? HACKERS.
Flying all over the map and killing all of the mobs. Go to Verne Mine Shaft 2, what do you see on all 20 channels? That's right, hackers. Go to Ocean I.C., what do you see? Go to any of the maps around Leafre, WHAT DO YOU SEE?? Use all of your reports, nothing will happen
Now, you may have guessed that I have been banned. I was, and I wrote an appeal. I have a guess it was for picking up the same items as them, but I was completing a quest in the same map as them. I checked all of the channels, what am I supposed to do? Postpone the quest until they're gone? This problem has been going on for what seems to be about two months; resulting in many avid players being banned for being in the same map as them.
Every single person in that list has the same common factor--being in the same map as hackers. And that's just from the first page of this sub.
This was my ban appeal:
I was banned while on the same map as hackers, even though I was not hacking. I made 5 reports of the hackers, but they are everywhere! Road to the Mine 1 on all channels--full of hackers. Verne Mine: Shaft 2 full of hackers on all channels. The first map leaving Orbis Tower to Aqua Road as well.
I've been progressing the Resistance story line, I had to pick up items from the Big Spiders in Verne Mine: Shaft 2. Every single channel, from 1-20, is full of groups of hackers. I reported them, and I made a megaphone announcement to get the attention of the GM's. I have been playing the game for almost a decade; I do NOT hack. If I accidentally picked up some of their items, I apologize, but I was in no way attempting to hack or profit from the hackers. I have enough mesos, why would I need some measly spider antennas? I was picking up the required quest item, again I apologize if I picked up some of their loot. I tried my best to avoid them, but they dominate every. single. channel. It took me almost 20 minutes and 10+ channel switches to get what I needed because of them.
Please unban my account, I'll stay out of any maps with hackers in the future.
Who knows what it will do. Or this thread even. I have been playing on my account for almost 10 years, at no point have I ever used a 3rd party software to exploit the game. During that time, I must have made hundreds
of user reports for hacking. That holds no merit or factors into who is banned? I have no track record of ever exploiting before, that has no say in the matter?
I love this game, and I hope they unban me. It's been a large chunk of my video game life and it would be devastating to be banned. If this thread does nothing, I think it's worth getting the word out that either (A) Nexon knows of this continual, systematic hacking and they are choosing to do nothing about it, while genuine players who spend legitimate money on this game are banned; or (B) Nexon is complicit with the hacking. I remember playing back in the old-school, Wizet-ran Maplestory when, if you reported a hacker, they were banned in minutes. Now, nothing seems to be done.
