Im sure you are all aware of the idiots in this game. But this has really annoyed me.

This morning I took my semi pro test, and during the whole round I kept having the annoying server messages showing hole in ones etc. Now im happy to see that when its a genuine Alba or HiO, but the hackers were out in force this morning and it was extremely distracting.

Names so far ive noted are :

.:Zygmunt:.
.::Belz::. (Note could be the other way around ie .::Zyhmunt::. or .:Belz:. )

Devilzlnc or Devilz1nc hard to tell with the font

1437 (That was the name)
dogdog

These idiots were hacking today ,with hio after hio etc and just continued all the way through my test. Now I know hackers are part of any game you play, no game is safe from these idiots, but I really hope that SO not only bans these accounts, but IP bans the people involved. Surely the SO server can be set to instantly ban someone who scores three hio's in a row, as thats impossible on any course.

Personally my feelings towards hackers are not good and I wont rant that here, lets just say they would need dental records for an ID after I was done, so please PLEASE SO check your server records and get rid of these idiots.

I did score well in my test afterwards :)

Yes the hackers are all over the green channel and this is going on since this morning.I think SO better reconsider the HackShield protection which is basically useless now. It may be better than nothing but maybe it is time to look for another anti-cheat program.

Punkbuster comes to mind.

Start MAC address banning. For those that don't know, MAC address is the physical address of your network card, so essentially you're banning a piece of hardware. In this case, they can create as many accounts as they want, it won't matter.

Sure sure there's work arounds, but it's more of a nuisance then just a simple IP ban which could be easily averted. And lets face it, most hackers are script kiddies, they didn't write the hack and probably wouldn't know how to get around a MAC address beyond actually purchasing a new card.

The people in square with the ?'s are not admins, their just people who SO give the ? to along with a stat hat and glove to help new people in the game and screen shot idiots in square, the people with ?'s can do absolutely nothing about the hackers, cept for screen shot and send a DQA to SO. Only ones that can ban to my knowledge is an actual GM character.
