Trendy's pathetic attempts to stop hacking. Banning the wrong people is one of such.
Hey guys, a few things to bear in mind whilst reading and responding to this thread: 1. This is about ranked online hacking not open online. 2. Think about whether Trendy is doing the right thing by banning people who haven't hacked but have hacked gear.
Ok, the main issue of this thread, and yes it is a personal one: Yesterday I was Trendy banned from online play, no reason was given. I have emailed Trendy for feedback on my ban as I have absolutely no idea why it happened, I respect other players, I hate kicking people and I try never to use offensive language of any variety at all in game.
One thing strikes me when I think about why I was banned. I had recently bought a few sets of transcendent armour with INCREDIBLE stats in an afk shop (and a few pets as well). A few players in my games had told me that my gear was hacked because of the impossibly good stats (+600-700 on all tower stats), apparently there is a cap for stats on armour? I didn't know there was one so I never checked the armour I bought to see if they breached these caps as I play the game for fun, not to analyse the statistics of it, although I wish I had analysed these statistics as I am obviously now banned and I assume that this ban has come from players reporting my gear.
If I did have hacked gear, fair enough I have been banned, I shouldn't have had it, I don't contest that, but my problem is that I had no idea that I bought hacked gear and now I can never play one of my favourite games because of an afk shop host who clearly hacked his/her gear.
THIS is the unfair part. Trendy has banned a victim of circumstance perminently, and I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE, instead of the actual hacker.
This is your attempt to stop hacking Trendy? Ban everyone perminently who has hacked gear? At least tell us that the gear is hacked and give us a chance to delete it or sell it to the tavern keeper before you ban us. I know this sounds pathetic but I had bought all the dlc for this game, played it quite a lot and made some friends on it as well and now I am perminently banned from it?
Why don't you search for the actual hackers and ban THEM Trendy instead of banning victims of circumstance and saying "hey guys we banned some hackers!!!!" because we are not the hackers, we are victims of both the hackers because we bought their hacked gear and you Trendy, VICTIMS OF YOU, because you have used us as scapegoats!
Do what is right Trendy, fix your system, ban the real hackers and at least tell us we have hacked gear before you ban us.
