PC MMORPGs are commonly hurt by the myriad of hacks available that often provide hilarious advantages to those deciding to use them. Black Desert Online is one of those MMORPGs that sadly cannot be called an exception.
There are plenty of hack developers who target MMORPGs nowadays, and one particular site decided to create a tool that brings advantages to those who just can’t play fairly in Black Desert Online. This developer created a hack that doesn’t just include a fishing bot, but other nasty things like a Combo Bot, an Aimbot, a Radar and more. Should this be tolerated in any MMORPG?
The developer currently claims that the cheating tool is undetected, which means that the defensive measures in Black Desert Online against hackers and cheaters are not enough. In an online context, such as an MMORPG, this is something that clearly can have a heavy impact on the overall experience of players, especially if they run into opponents who are using such tools. The Aimbot function of the hack brings a ridiculous advantage to ranged classes especially, as players simply have to focus on using the right spells and movement, while the hack does all the aiming. Add to that the combo
The Aimbot function of the hack brings a ridiculous advantage to ranged classes especially, as players simply have to focus on using the right spells and movement, while the hack does all the aiming. Add to that the combo bot, which on a single button press uses all the necessary skills, and the cheater becomes an artificial intelligence that is almost impossible to counter.
Last year, there have been several discussions on Black Desert Online’s official forums about cheaters, hackers and exploiting, and the EU/NA publisher does its best to ban these in waves. Upon browsing around on the forums, you can run into comments such as, “It’s a Korean game. They’re usually littered with hacks and bugs,” or ” Since yesterday I met 3 cheater. No cooldowns incredible damage kill i 1 shot. The anticheat system u impelented is not working.”
This indicates, that players are noticing plenty of these cheaters who seem to be causing a significant amount of damage to the MMORPG. Black Desert Online currently utilizes the popular XignCode 3 defensive system, that somehow manages to miss some of the currently available hacks for the game.
Should the Korean developer consider implementing a better system? As long as these hacks are not countered, players will be unhappy about cheaters with advantages and sooner or later this issue will have to be tackled.
