Hackers in competitive modes - Remove FTP access to Competive Modes

TDC.1627TDC.1627 Member ✭✭

Looking at the increase of hackers in both PvP and WvW is it time to ban FTP accounts in competitive modes?

If Anet actually did something about hackers and banned the accounts there is nothing stopping a hacker from starting a new FTP account. Or we have established players hacking on FTP accounts to protect their main accounts.

What are the thoughts on removing access to PvP and WvW on FTP accounts? If you want to play in these modes you need a paid account.

  • Why would you hack in wvw? There is nothing to win in this game mode.

  • anet dont care so i dont see it happening, nice idea tho and we would see if people are willing to risk their main accounts over hacking, like diomache said why bother? but surprisingly so many do

    Anet just needs to perma ban them. Just a few days ago i saw the same warrior flying around, very obvious, through EB. Nothing changed in years. Another F for Anet. I would rate them worse but F is the bottom already.

    Agreed, I don't know why they are so quiet on this front. The only problem is they can permaban but they can come straight back in on an FTP account unless ANET IP ban then but even then a VPN will solve that.

    Most of the hacker in wvw or pvp just play for making fun of normal players, they do not need loots. They get a few laugh playing god mode and seeing other get mads.

    Just saw 2 teleport hack players in WVW just now, N* server (or linked S* server) NW* guild name, even one is platinum wvw rank, both is rev, always teleport away when low HP. So come to forum to check, not disappointed seeing few threads.
    We just left the map to another map, not to give them any fun.
