What does this mean for The War Z now?
So we ALL know that Sergey's account got hacked both in-game and on the forums. There are screenshots of horrible behaviour in-game and proof that the forums have been decimated.

And now the supposed hacker has revealed himself and is going to release all the information he obtained whilst hacking Sergey.

My question is: What does this mean for The War Z? Will it's end be finally upon us?

The end was near for this game regardless if this happend or not, this just expedited that process as now the game is unsecure and peoples CC information etc is opened. Trusting these guys to impletment a more "secure" measures towards this event isn't very promising as they can't even secure there own game to begin with. There cheap on development and they don't know what they're doing as it's evident in their updates and hotfixes. It's sucks because I really wanted to see this game do well.

Didn't the hacker say he didn't get any CC info. Or at least hasn't found it yet. I don't see how he could get the CC info because I didn't purchase the game through the forums. I bought it through Xsolla or whatever.

CC info is separate through Xolla (or whatever its called that they use to process cards) or thru Steam if you got it via there....so most CC info should be relatively safe.

The only CC info that could be in jeopardy is the accounts held by Legendary and pre-alpha sales...they could be in that database that was stolen.


now, on the other hand.... account passwords, activity, personal info, etc is another story.... it looks as though that info was nabbed.


it would be very wise to change any passwords you have if you have a War Z account.

yes and it would also be wise to contact your bank and have a new account number if you made a purchase with your CC or DC for those that did. I use a pre-paid card to the amount that way if something like this did happen and that slim chance that someone did start making unauthroized transactions I wouldn't be at a major loss or a loss at all providing I exspended that amount. Still better safe than sorry than to be a fool and take a theifs word.

Forgot when posting in another thread about how this will essentially change nothing, that the hackers gained access to more than just the account database.

For instance they got details of how their Fairfight system works and the server setup files. All of that would definitely be bad news for Hammerpoint.

Apparently the hackers are in the process of unbanning game accounts right now? I dunno.

But didn't everyone know how farifight works? It tracks numbers and when it thinks your hacking, it takes screenshots and then someone reviews the screen shots? Least that's how I thought it worked.

If you know how the security works it gets easier to work out how to circumvent it. Think it's safe to say they now know more about that than they did before. ArtificialAiming honcho has contacted the guy.

Also they apparently have access to the server the screenshots get sent to.

after reading those rageforums this game will go f2p in no time. ahhahahaha.

some people have been getting "unbanned" that were previously banned but their inventory wiped clean. It's going to be a busy week for HP they will actually have to work now.

Doesnt matter, the game is as good as dead. Sergey cant even protect his own stuff, let alone that of others. Not that he cares though. This maybe even his own doing, so he can blame some other person of bringing his downfall in the game. Now he can go and say he couldnt help it, but needed to shut the game down. This is all in his plans and his grand scheme!
