    Most games want you to privately report cheaters so people don’t realize how many are cheating.  But we all know a 5min cheat that still works.   Just pretty much on honor system to not use it and report people who do 

    This has absolutely nothing to do with name and shame rules. The reason name-shaming is forbidden it is rude to call people out on the forums (thus a violation of the rules), and it is not a good basis for a report- it's a he said she said and the only valuable purpose of posting it publicly is to make another person look bad, whether they actually did something or not.

    It has ZERO to do with masking the number of people who get in trouble, and many games, especially MMOs, provide monthly reports on the number of users banned or suspended from the game.

    And the most honorable thing to do if you know about a cheat is to report the cheat itself, not just the people who use it, so that actions can be taken to address the underlying problem. And the only reason not to do that is to exploit the cheat oneself.

  2. Please do not name-and-shame users in game on the forums. I have removed the names given in the post. Feel free to report users you suspect of ch eating through appropriate channels, but don't post about it here.

    While it is impossible to completely eradicate cheating, Chromatic will be doing their best they can to limit its potential impact.

    The game seems a bit easy right now, I think because we're getting Epic and Legendary drops without Nightmare / Massacre modes to use them on.   Insane Campaign drops lvl 45 gear.

    the current gear tiers are completely different from DD1 so you can't really correlate this well, however I myself was irritated by insane dropping gear way over the level you could complete the maps at on a regular basis. that needs a looking-at.

    Honestly, DD1 was not a terribly difficult game before Nightmare came out, and so I don't think this is that much different.

    I was more talking about the removing of low level god characters through forced levelups, shared EXP, gear stats (can't go negative and just an "armor" value), and how the drop rates for high tier loot seem really high. Although I have no clue what the drop rates on Godly were in the original game on Insane.

    Still though I think Massacre on the current maps won't be any more difficult than Nightmare on the hardest maps.

    If it isn't more difficult it will be a bug and will be fixed. It's supposed to be harder and saying "i dont think it will be harder" doesn't mean it won't be lol.

    I don't know what you're talking about in half this post though. "removing of low level god characters through forced levleups?" What does this even mean? Also, the vast majority of everybody never liked negative stats and it doesn't add challenge, it only means more junk loot. I'll give you no resistances as an oversimplification, however.

    Also, every serious player of DD1 was using controller emulators to level 4 heroes at once. Doing that automatically just means you don't need to use third party tools to save grinding time. I don't know how this isn't a very very good thing.

  5. It's really not that different from what they said it was. A mix of old and new maps and trying to bring back the original feel of the game on a new engine. I'm not sure what part of what they're doing isn't in line with that. stats and loot cleaned up, just about everything is legitimately improved aside from the features we're still waiting on.

    aimed a lot more towards casual.

    Careful, you say that now, but nightmare and massacre will be a thing.... :p

  6. There's a few rules to consider when buying from shops:

    If it has paypal in the name, 100% guaranteed the items are hacked. Also paying real money for items in this way isn't allowed anyway and is bannable anyway.

    If it's not a paypal shop, just inspect the items carefully. If you've never seen an item drop with the stats on it, but it doesn't look blatantly hacked, post about it in the item check thread and someone can help you determine if it's possible or not.

    And the old adage, if it looks too good to be true it probably is.


  7. In this case, it is possible they may be able to assist you, but it can't be stressed enough that any website or game accounts you care about you need to take care to lock them down sufficiently with good passwords not used elsewhere etc. etc. so on and so on, as you are ultimately responsible for anything that happens with your accounts, even if it's not you doing it- though this mainly applies to account sharing, which is why they might could maybe assist you in this case. (I am just a forum mod and i make no promises)

    If its because of a video its not on the same account its not even updated. if that is the reason i should have been contacted by a CDT member or Staff from Trendy or Chromatic Games  whoever is in charge of this game to take it down. an educational video for people that didnt want to play the right way on the Open Server which from my understanding had no guidelines or anything of that nature

     

    "I found a video about hacking and decided to try it and I got banned."

    Why are you surprised by this?


  9. Did you switch from windows to linux? Contact chromatic and do not log into that account at all before they say it is ok, unless you already did overwrite the savefiles bunch of times by playing the game on ranked again.

    But. Know this. You can go from linux to windows, but not from windows to linux.

    You can't do either of these things. The different platforms are on different versions and are not compatible with each other.


  10. Just FYI, what was Trendy is now Chromatic Games. A lot of old stickies haven't yet been updated//deleted/etc yet. But as a rule everything linked in that thread still applies.

    In the case you have a VAC ban there's 0% chance that anything can be done to help you. If you were banned for having extremely hacked items you're probably hosed as well.

    However, as you may be aware, Chromatic Games is working on a reboot of DD1 on Unreal Engine 4, and this will be a chance for a fresh start for you. Better measures against cheating are one of the many features you can expect, so bear that in mind :p

    In accordance with the post linked above, this thread will be locked.
