Players Hacking Upgrades and Skills

Postby Dom073 » 22 April 2016, 21:14

Hello all, I just registered to bring light to this problem I have recently run into in the online multiplayer, that some people have been running around the multiplayer with obviously hacked ships. I didn't see any option to bring up his actual player name, no multiplayer tab that i could see, but i could click on his ship and saw his LVL 2 Eldar Captain with 8 UPGRADES and MAX Skills.

Is there a way to enforce the skill and upgrade limit per ship for the LVL of the Captain? Needs to be addressed if possible, instead of being lucky enough to get a screen shot with steams F12 option of his player name before the match. Hope bringing this up helps get it addressed.

Are you sure he was LvL two?
The MM hasn't been fully implemented yet so you may just have been shafted with an uneven match up.

Dude, did you check the screenshot before posting? It's an Eldar cruiser with SIX visible Skills and EIGHT visible Upgrades.

You can see the level of the ship on the screenshot and the amount of upgrades won't be possible even with a lvl10 ship

Oh.
I miscounted the number of upgrades and I didn't notice the skills or ship level.

Yeah it's a hack.

Wow.... That sucks. Now that is gonna run rampant. Why do people have to ruin a potentially great game.

You just can not release a game these days that has pvp without some kind of punkbuster.

got a case aswell but also could be a bug played with someone in a 2v2 who was designatet as a IN player but fielded nothing but chaos ships but there were nothing strange with the ships not sure what the reason for a hack like this is unless it gives him access to IN upgrades and favors
