View Full Version : How to stop hacking?

07-30-2012, 08:31 PM
Lately there has been increasingly more hackers and cheaters. I think that the forum community propose some constructive ideas to actually get the ball rolling on how to stop these hackers.

What do you think it would take to stop the hackers and cheaters?
-Game patch to fix glitches
-Faster bans on people
-Maybe ban accounts associated with a known hacker/cheaters phone # (not sure if possible)

I personally think there is only one way that action will be taken by Gree/Funzio. They need to be hit where it hurts the most and that is their wallet. The forum community is small compared to the actual game community which leads me to believe that the word needs to be spread. I personally will try and copy and post on every mafia members wall an important message.

"DON'T SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME, IT CAN BE EASILY HACKED" or something of the sort. Working on a good message that will get people to listen.

If the word can be spread much like when rat catching began then more people might consider not spending money. Then maybe Funzio/Gree will take notice when their cash flow slows down. Any other or better ideas are welcome. I have slowly begun to hate this game due to the corruption and will probably leave if I continue to be discouraged. I am hoping that the game becomes a little bit more controlled.

People will spend money either way...posting a message on someone's wall won't change anyone's opinion.

Due to the massive influx I would guess they are working on a better way to identify and ban hackers than the referral system. I say this because having so many people putting in tickets to ban hackers at some point becomes more man-power intensive than just implementing a system to identify them autonomously. The business case makes sense.

And remember, they have a common code base for CC/MW/KA, so any fixes would work for all current games saving development time.

Could backfire, players may attempt to try hacking themselves. Besides, people will still spend money, even after reading. This game plays on a persons pride and ego, and that is what keeps them spending.

haha true. I don't really think it can get much worse then it is. If it does I won't be sticking around much longer.

no matter the patches or fixes they do, someone will always come along and find another way in. if you go back to the beginning of this game. there have been hacks and fixes, and more hacks and more fixes, and the cycle of life goes on. it wont stop it will just get a little more trickier or harder but will still continue.

funzio will never reign in hackers that are spending 1000$ per event 4 times a month. have you noticed that the people in the top 25 run their event item count up to 200 with in the first 8 hours of the event. just count the gold neccecary. were talking about 15x2 xabout 400 = 12000 gold wich is a minimun of 900 dollars if and i mean if 90% of every box opened is an event item. any one who has spent gold to open items knows this is not possible. they have to be hacking or just plants by funzio staff to make people want to spend more gold. for all we know most of the top 25 are funzio staff whipping people into a spending frenzy. id suggest every one abstain from spending even a game dollar for teh next 4 events. that would hit them where it hurts the pocket. they put these outrageous stats and buffs on these items. to bait people with either low intelligence and high cash flow, hackers, or possibly mentally challenged people with a ssa check into spending all their money to make them selves feel superior to people who could never catch their stats without spending like 33k dollars real money. i know its a rediculous idea but they should be ashamed of themselves. their ought to be a cap on the amount of money you can spend on the game per week. quite litterally someone could put their entire life savings into an cc character to become the badest guy on the block. and do so in a matter of minutes. and build buffs week by week. so if you arent rich enough to spend a grand a week on an app this isnt the game for you unless you like being bullied by hackers cheaters and people with too much money and not enough brain to do something better with it. its almost criminal. and i dont wanna hear im just crying because i cant afford to keep up. i play to play not pay to play. i could buy my way to some items but i refuse not just because id rather add on to my house then piss away a grand with out even catching a buzz for it lol. but my wife would kill me if i spent a thousand dollars on this app for a digital item that makes my upgrades faster LOL wtf. and to the people that play this like its your real life and you must because of the spending GET A LIFE. stop feeding into what should shame these people. the amount of money they made ive calculated per event is staggering.with no remorse. it has me wondering if its an addiction and how many people spent their rent and food money on game gold. or maybe sold away your wifes jewelry at the pawn shop for game gold. this is an illness well past boarderline mental sickness. and funzio should take some responsibility and limit spending. though im certain they wont why would they they are in it to take as much as possible and sone of you keep giving. maybe im worng and the ones that do have an unlimited cash flow to waiste on an 8 bit game. or maybe just maybe you are mentally diseased spending soo much, but who is worse the addict or the dealer that wont say hey man maybe youve hade enough!

It's a nice block so I'll give the post marks for keeping his forum carbon footprint to a minimum.

i was posting verry serious issues that only scratch the surface of what i have to say. that post is just a taste of what i want to say.

if they actually let me start a thread there will be a verry serious complete article. and just for the heck of it; i would punctuate it properly.

I seem to be finding a lot more hackers again. I report them with pictures and their codes but here nothing from funzio. I have one in my mafia so I am interested to see if he gets banned. He is lvl 57 with casino + two buildings being built + high lvl respect and game money weapons. He has hacked or spent gold also.
