Someone used a pic of my base in their hacker/cheater tools for Modern War on YouTube. Here is a link to the video that I have flagged to YouTube. Is there anything else I can do to bring this to YouTube's attention?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0DpUHI0c6Y

Here is the post that I posted on the video, but it's pending approval by the uploader:
If you are trying to say that your base was that in this video, you are full of it. That is my base and no hacks or cheats were used in creating it!!! This video will be reported.

Thanks WarPriest for bringing this to my attention. I feel violated.

The thing about that is, it is a snapshot from the owners view (not saying you) because you can see the expansion arrows. You cannot see the expansion arrows of a rival or friends base, only the owners can. That's what makes it so weird.

Searching for modern war hacks and find a picture of your base in the video? A while ago I stumbled across a picture of my aunt she was holding her cat and the heads were switched so she had the cats head and her cat was on her head. Pretty strange. I sent her the link and she had no idea this was on the Internet. She found it kind of creepy and an invasion of privacy since this picture was taken in her home probably by friends and someone probably posted it on Facebook and then someone else probably photoshopped it and posted it somewhere and then someone else put it on another site and so on and so on. Beware of what you do on the Internet, because you never know who is looking and what can happen.

I came across it by another website. It was a modern war hack website and there was the video link in it.

Actually WPs 27K plus whatever he had before is nothing compared to the big groups in the top level. Each of them probably has 500K+ gold worth of stuff.

vorm
05-07-2012, 11:10 PM
All the screen shots are obvious photoshops of the gold amount. They probably picked you because your pic just so happened to have almost all the numeric digits of white text on a the black background in the cash number, so they could just cut and paste them to make any number of a high amount of gold. In some of the other screenshots they don't even try very hard at all and just use the last 4 digits of the cash amount to be the gold amount, in another one they take the first 2 digits of the cash amount and put them with the last 2 digits of it.

I know that. I didn't say they are all like that. I am not going into detail but I guarantee at least some of them got gold other than the legit way.

There are only a couple of people that i have seen that have been able to hack gold units. In my experience, the easy thing is hacking valor units, energy and any loot units. The real hackers get the gold units, and units in files that are not actually available in the game. I have only seen 1 or 2 of these guys and they have been banned pretty quickly. These whales didn't get that strong off hacking.

There's a few obvious hackers that some people have talked about, but they all tend to be at lower levels.
Even if one of them hacked and somehow didn't get caught, there's still like 50-100 people that have spent into the tens of thousands of dollars on this game. Just saying that your 27K gold is only a high number compared to those on this forum.

As far as i know, people cannot buy gold for others, so how would they go about scamming gold? The only way i see it is that they could scam someone's money and then spend that money on gold, which IMO is a waste of their scheme, especially if they can make that sort of cash off it.

It isn't like they are scamming for 50K all at once. This is really not that hard to undrstand. They sam the bank or card company for only a few thousand at a time.
