Been on SV about 4 months and got the idea to formulate a list of my observations for amusement.
Like Spinal Tap, this list goes to 11. Enjoy.
Straight to the Point
Rip van Winkle
Fine Line Walker
Call Me Ishmael
I guess we have no hackers then, maybe we are just THAT good.
None of them are 'hackers' - they are script kiddies Mel. But I love this thread. Fantastic job!
"Playing Dumb" falls under hackers
I enjoyed that read.
among the script kiddies, they align to a few categories before they are banned. in no particular order
The usual suspects:
Joins the server with a derp or guy fox skin and has to choose whether to fly right out of the gate and get auto jailed, or pass the quiz and fly introns of other players and get banned. in general, he or she cant resist the ban hammer.
The casual Xrayer
Typically found with their face pressed against the wall of their mining tunnel, without the ability to see blocks that are not ores, they are typically getting very intimate with the walls around them. they tend to get distracted and stare off into space, despite nothing but stone around them. they display clear signs of x-ray.
The factions man
This player is using a client for the purpose of covering ground, raiding, and killing. This player is lazy and will almost always fly over or speed through oceans and almost always has on speed on during land travel. Notable attributes are finding hidden bases unnaturally, taking no fall damage, going to fast, and punching mobs from behind their back.
difficult to describe, easy to catch
My personal favorite, this hacker watches tab and never hacks if a staff member is online. This hacker may seem dangerous but their fatal weakness is that they have a false sense of security when no staff are on and do obvious and easy to catch hacks, and get auto jailed then get grumpy and leave forever before getting banned.
We all can learn a lot from this thread~
I like the "Whack-a-Mole" title. ^-^
Glad peeps are liking it. Like I said was mostly for fun however thanks LB for the insights, very interesting!
