I understand this post may get my forums account banned but somethings need to be said and the truth for some is a hard pill to swallow.
I have watched the population of the game die swiftly due in large part to the lack of any real actions tanken against those that use Aimbot, ESP and a plethora of other exploits that seem to all come from the same region. What is the effect of a ban if the person in question simply bypasses the action taken by buying another copy of the game and repeating the same actions over again. These players are so blatant that they do not even attempt to hide it by changing company, or character names, knowing all to well that nothing will happen to them for some time while they continue to aimbot kill the sever population to alarming low levels. They are aimbotting with every weapon type and even cannons to snipe npcs off sails in 212 ping, but they are able to cannon snipe 8 ship armored crew off sails from 3 separate ships all by the same person.
I understand a business model that supports both sides of a war, it allows you to keep making money off a game that currently has no other source of revenue than the initial purchase of the game, playing both sides of the fence allows a steady cash flow, but lacks integrity.
Perhaps we can get a region lock? I understand that China has implemented new changes to the games its citizens are allowed to play and if the restrictions are correct there are many aspects of Atlas that violate those restrictions. “Games that contain images of corpses and blood will also be rejected. Developers previously modified blood color to green to circumvent restrictions, but the renewed guidelines have effectively ruled out any color variations of blood.”
I am looking for a fair battlefield where my skill is tested against that of someone else not their ability to exploit the game.
