Thread: Cheaters

VOW is so filled with abusers now.

I've seen many characters fighting the same person for 16-30 Cage matches until the other person dies then make another wrestler to die again and so on.

I've tried reporting a few of them, but nothing happens.

Example: Right now (23:00 game time) ..KamaKaze..(30583) is fighting non-stop with boxmcshine(30581) until boxmcshine dies......then boxmcshine makes SimonSparrowhawk(30585) and is now fighting non-stop with ..KamaKaze..(30583)
Dr.Pain (30578) doing it as well using kiss(30577) then kiss1(30579)

its possible hes just a newb, the one who is dieing, any ways sooner or later the "cheater" or smart person will soon have to fight high people.

Well just to add to this, Dr.Pain 9(30604) has just kept challenging prd21(30607) until he died and then tr(30610). Just to add a little extra all the challenges are by the ther person and are always challenged with "m" and responded to with "y" including one time when Dr.Pain 9(30604) challenged tr(30610) first which was then quickly removed. It's also very unlikely that all these newbs started at roughly the same time. There is virtually no chance that these people are not cheating.

At the beginning of my career as a LAW I challenged this guy, Mike Marek a whole bunch of times in cages and singles, it was like 15 times, after that I had no AP, and he died by someone else, pretty good chance though he cheats.

Who cares. VOW sucks Mod-wise. The mods are barely active, and when they are, they don't end up doing anything.

Dr. Pain23 makes a character, loses his first fight to kiss, makes Dr. Pain24, beats kiss 25 times. kiss never bothers to heal. dies. enters kiss1. well you know the rest of the story.

Maybe it's time to implement a 24 hour mod-watch. Maybe you shouldn't be able to make a new character for a set amount of days, unless you donate. How about you can't fight the same person more than 10 times in a row, or your account is redflagged and locked until a mod can enter in and investigate.

The mods have their hands full now. You have 5? mods listed, but 2 of them no longer mod, so you have 3. There isn't an hour that goes by on this game that you don't see a blatant cheater or some lil kid come on that obviously has just discovered some new words that his mother would slap his face right off for saying them in front of her.

Well, in SSWO this would be terrible, I have a few sparringpartners with whom I fight on a daily basis. Sometimes multiple times a day: Investigation would be needed in my occasion for my relationship with the following wrestlers: Bubba Gump, Wiking, Mistah Speddles, Dex, Omega, Loose Morals, Konrad, maximumpayne, Chris Benoit, Rincewind, Dirty Old Man, Chaotic Theory, Fritzchen, Kabrakan, Scorpion and many more...

But maybe your ideas can work with some work on it ):

We need new mods. Suggestions: anyone who is constantly online and can be trusted. Just give them the power to lock an account, for Peter's later viewing and banning or unlocking.

Right now, of the 3 or so VOW moderators, only 1 of them has any review and investigative power, and he is also a full-time student. Without a salary, it is impossible to have 24-hour moderation of all the games. When I was a mod, I took on average 2 hours out of my workday to do that for free. that's 10 hours per week I was stealing from my employer. When I went home, I had about 300 things that I would rather be doing (or had to be doing) with my free time.

That said, everyone needs to realize that the games don't make nearly enough money to even pay one moderator, as most of the money goes toward server costs and putting food in Peter's stomach. It really is a full time-job staffed by very part time volunteers.

Do I agree that PLIT is under-moderated? Absolutely. However, unless *reliable, competant, and mature* people step forward and volunteer their time, nothing is going to change. Peter simply doesn't have the time to go recruiting mods. Anyone interested can contact me or scorp in VOW (loose morals or scorpion).

I am really doing the best I can. As Doug mentioned, I am a student and spent 10 hours a day at the University (8 am to 6 pm, sometimes 7 pm). Doug has a full time job, which probably takes up even more time.

Having more moderators would certainly help some, but even then we wouldnt find everything. Having too many mods would also create other problems...

Anyway... wether we add new mods or not, the most important and surest way to catch cheaters is:

when you see someone cheating, report him!!!

I will take care of every case you report.

Report them to the moderator e-mail account - if you send me an ingame message or a post it in the forum, there's a chance I wont find it (between all the new posts, match fought messages, etc. pp.)

I'll offer my help if needed.

Specs are :

When I'm on, I'm seriously on.

When I'm off, I can be missing for weeks.

I treat everybody with the same amount of sarcasm :)

We do not really need more mods at the moment.

What we need is to have responsible players who report any cheaters they see.
