I never understood cheating in competition. I personally never cheat in any thing.
For example, in Quake 3, I played and never used hacks or aim bots or crap
In Diablo 2 hardcore, I dueled and pk'd without any hacks. No duped items, no bugged items, no auto-exit, nothing. I was 100% legit.
I played Starcraft: I did 1 on 1 duels, I never had map hacks or anything.
For me the goal of competition is to win but if you don't win legitimately, it is completely and utterly meaningless to me. It just doesn't make sense. The goal of competition is to compete and win, but if you cheat how do you derive pleasure from it?
I remember in diablo 2, at times, i'd buy runes off amazon to get certain gear cuz i never had the time to farm it all myself. But it was available to people. I guess people may say I was cheating because I was using money, but I was trading money to get an item available and not a bugged or duped item. I'd buy stuff from cash shops at times, but i'd never cheat in straight competition. Also, in PvE conditions, I don't really care about what goes on, it is like playing a single player game at that point.
I can understand people cheating in the olympics and in sports because it comes with money, but if you cheat in a mindless game of quake 3 or whatever, wtf is the point?
Anyway, what's the point of autoaim and hacking and crap in FPS's or even cheating at Scrabble or monopoly. Thanks.
p.s. I know people cheat to win, but how do they derive pleasure from it when they cheated. I don't get it because I could never derive pleasure from winning if I cheat. It just doesn't make sense to me. I mean oh yay I beat so-and-so . . . but you cheated . . . so does it even matter? It is like Michael Jordan deriving pleasure from beating me 1 on 1 in basketball. I feel it is the same way with cheating.
