Hacking of 2009/2010

Posted on December 12, 2012

I know this part or section conflicts with others, the facts/information here applies to this section only and overrides the other information in this section online.

There are three ways the hacker could have done it, one, he got database access; once he has that he can do anything. The second way he could have done it is to find a flaw in the source code programming. Lastly, he could have planted a virus, a very powerful one, in an often used source by people who play this game.

Database access is a likely option, but he would not have had it, perhaps an administrator dump of the accounts once inside would have been enough. This option is favoured and though of to be likely by many people and it is not impossible. The passwords were most likely encrypted in the database, meaning that the hacker would either have to brute force the passwords, if encrypted in hash, or would have to decompile them. Some say that Glacia was not hit, but the truth is that the accounts being used there were around for a long time, every world was hit.

The flaw in the source code programming would have been a likely explanation, it is very easy to bypass pins and a flaw in the source code programming was the cause of the guild hacking last year. It is very possible to send packets that the client doesn’t really want to, such as a packet to disband guild when you are not the leader. These exploits are easy to patch if found.

Planting a virus is a very likely thing, but there are a ton of secure people who have been hacked. Do not be so sure that you have no virus; always scan before answering that question.

League of Legends: Changing Bad Player Behavior

Posted on December 08, 2012

League of Legends developer Riot Games has established a new anti-griefer task force it calls the Player Behaviour and Justice Team. It’s job is to stop being being “jerks” online.In an interview with Gamasutra, League of Legends lead producer Travis George explained that the task force was set up to monitor foul play and griefing as a means of better understanding it, and to devise more effective ways of putting a stop to unscrupulous actions.

He said, “Nobody wants to play a game with somebody who’s mean. There’s a line, and that line generally is people being mean for the sake of being mean – telling you what to do, telling you how bad you are. And I think we can actually fix a lot of that.”

“We actually have built a team around this. We call it, lovingly, the Player Behaviour and Justice Team. There are a lot of really talented folks on that team, including two PhDs. One’s a cognitive neuroscientist and one’s a behavioural psychologist.”

“We’ve actually developed specific trends, and our own set of metrics that we look at for measuring what percentage of times we think that players will encounter a negative experience in a game, and how severe that negative experience is,” says George. “And then we have to build things or be responsive or message the community in a particular way to address those things.”


RaiderZ – St. Fhannel Monastery Trailer

Posted on December 08, 2012

Following the recent launch of RaiderZ, we’re pleased to share a brand new trailer highlighting St. Fhannel Monastery, one of the monster-hunting MMO’s high-level instances. This multiple wing instance will find veteran hunters banding together to clear this sacred area of an unholy corruption.”One of my favorite things about RaiderZ is its incredibly unique boss fights,” says Senior Producer Mark Hill.

“It’s not unusual to face situations where players can break off limbs from bosses and equip them as weapons or instances that find players dodging and blocking over-the-top air attacks and dangerous grappling moves. But in addition to St. Fhannel Monastery’s deadly guardians, the layout and flow of multi-wing dungeon is also a great example of how RaiderZ manages to push the boundaries of what we’ve come to expect from MMOs.”

In RaiderZ, players must “Hunt Together or Die Alone” if they hope to succeed in battle against Rendel’s most deadly creatures. With its action-oriented combat system, flexible class system, unique and engaging boss encounters, and stunning environments, RaiderZ introduces a change of pace for fans of the genre. The best part: RaiderZ is free-to-play.

Dragon Knight online: Is this worth your time?

Posted on December 07, 2012

So since I haven’t really seen any proper detailed review or thoughts on the game that can give people a good idea of what the game basically is, I thought I would do just that to give those people an idea if your still pondering on “is this even worth trying?”.

The customization is really basic for this game, I was originally hoping it would have more as we come closer to 2013 but I should really start remembering that not all company’s have the funds to make everything as great as possible, leading from customization of characters to the texturing of the game world.

So anyway what we have is simply 4 things to work from, 5 selections of faces, 5 hair styles and 3 colours to them, 5 accessory’s and 5 face decorations (which seems to be some random face paint) and lastly you can choose from 3 different colours for your starter armour, also at the top right you can preview your future armours which seems to be an every 10 levels thing into which they change appearance.

So from what the game really has to offer in terms of PvE so far is all quite basic, it’s simply a pick quest up from y NPC, kill x mobs required for the quest/kill mobs for x item and hand it back to y npc (as you can see in the screenshot at the right hand side of the screen), since the quests wasn’t overly difficult I didn’t really mind doing them too much, what kept me interested to some degree was how you could build your characters skills since there’s 2 trees you can go down and you’re not limited to 1, e.g for the sorcerer it’s more of a Fire tree and an Ice tree (though the skills in each of them arn’t just limited to fire and ice skills only) and in order to unlock the next tier of skills below you would have to spend x amount of points in the tier above first, also from what I’ve heard is that when you fully complete 1 tree you will unlock a new one (may need confirmation but it looks that way anyway).

I did like the idea that you got some AoE skills to play around with when you eventually unlocked them as it made the game more fun to play when you could finally start gathering mobs and just blasting them with AoEs, which of course made the questing faster and grinding for exp much easier as well.
