Cheating Hacker’s ‘Guild Wars 2’ Character Stripped Naked and Killed before Banning
This is what we call virtual humiliation in public which was set as an example by Guild Wars 2 creators when they found out that a hacker had to go on with his malicious and wicked actions for weeks. Since it was impossible to grab hold of the physical entity executing crooked activities in-game, the creators punished his toon to the Nth degree. The showdown began when cheaters stripped the cheaters character half naked, brought him down to a cliff and threw him off. The rat knew he was going to be molested publicly and he was by far cornered after pulling off nasty tricks. He was then stripped down from his account by Guild Wars 2 creators, deleting his characters and banning his account for a life time.
The question remains, what tricks did he pulled off that pushed the creators to put an end to his activities? In-game players have reported that he was continuously breaking all ground rules of the game and used his coding skills to manipulate World vs World (Realm vs Realm) rules. His persistent unwanted behavior of doing massive damage to his opponents, teleporting and godly surviving was then recorded by a player in-game as a proof for creators to subject him to ban.
This is what Chris Cleary, the Security Lead of Guild Wars 2, had to say about the video:
“We don’t need to see it in-game, sometimes good video evidence is enough for me to track down who it was,”
He also added;
“In this case, the video was enough for me to find out who it was and take action. Thanks for the video, and to accompany your video, I give you this video of his account’s last moments.”
Justice was served; we all hope to see similar actions taken by other platforms because hackers seem to have gained empowerment when they are completely ignored and this is something which bothers other players who want to spend quality time playing their favorite online game.
