And this is the problem users using Cheat Engine, for example, stated above, or other programs like Asus Keybot 2, which comes bundled with the ROG Motherboards, and ASUS Sonic Suite, shouldn't get users banned from games unless they are warned first, or told it can't be run.FrodoFragins said:No, he said that he didn't cheat in GW2 as there is little benefit relative to the risk. which is true. So apparently leaving those programs running is enough to get a ban. And we dont know if any of those programs even work for GW2.rojoArcueid said:i think he implied that he got banned in GW2 for using the cheat engine that somehow didn't get him banned from FFXIV and PoE, so he expected not to get banned in GW2... as if these companies had the exact same terms of service and user agreements.FrodoFragins said:cheating in other games isn't justification for being banned in games you don't cheat in. That's his point and it is certainly reasonable.rojoArcueid said:So, I too got hit by this ban wave. I was a bit surprised since I bot in a lot of games like FFXIV and Path of Exile, mostly to keep up with my unemployed friends.
That quote comes straight from the Reddit post.
So he breaks the rules to "try and keep up with his unemployed friends"? quite the lame excuse he used there. He got banned for breaking the rules and now he is grabbing pitchforks to go against ANET for banning people who break the rules.
If their cheat detection is yielding false flags then that's a major issue. Looking at all live processes is also sketchy as fuck, and possibly illegal
I hate how prevalent cheating has become, but that doesn't justify every mechanism developers use to catch them.
