Don't worry about it, the new VAC Ban system that stops all players who ever got a vac ban will stop them .. oh wait ... you mean it didnt??!!

Hackers are out to wreck the game and are doing a very efficient job of it. There is now more time spent talking about hackers than playing the game, while in the meantime the player count declines daily.

I haven't seen any?

You'll always get cheaters. Can't stop that. I don't think they will destroy the game. There are twice as many people playing right now than what we had before the giveaway.

Probably just some fallout from the vac ban crew.

Player count declines?
I didn´t check the usage statistics, but if I would have to draw conclusions from the number of players present in the realism servers each time I play RO2/RS, I see no declinein servers filled (nearly) to the brink.
To the contrary, it seems to me like we have more servers filled (near) to the max now.

Just saw the latest hack. It indicates that a player has changed his name and then it spams the text chat with the name of a hack website.

Lesson here is that you should NEVER give a game away for free.

No offense to you personally but given that nobody made any money from this giveaway and it let the gates open to hacking pieces of sh.yte, I'm not sure you're making a good argument in defense of the free giveaway.

how is more players to help boost the longevity of a game a bad argument since more players = more full servers.

yes there may be some hackers who got in but that happens regardless(cheap sales bring them in to) but the majority of people who nabbed the freebie are legit players.

on a side note how does company not making any money from it affect any of the players such as yourself? anyways im sure they did make money with rising storm sales. they didnt give it away for free for no reason. it was a marketing tactic(notice around same time rising storm was on sale) while also pleasing gamers who have never got to play this great game.

i like this new free giveaway trend, i hope more companies do it! even origin is handing out games here and there.

You think it didn't boost Rising Storm sales at all?

If someone knows a very anti-cheater trustful server let us know and we'll go there. I used to play in the Semprer Fi server of Michael Nomad. A guy that could have or not his problems but at hius server you would find fair play.

Yeap, 100% agree... but twi aren't the smartest.

Not really, and at 4.99 a pop I doubt it brought in much.... but the cost to the existing community was high

It was just as easy to find a full server prior to the giveaway as it is now, the biggest difference is now hacking/cheating has a much higher profile.
