They should seek out to hire that guy. If he can circumvent things to put in multiplayer and offline, he's an asset waiting to happen.
Inb4 people will defend the guy and say Blizzard is totaly wrong here
Oh no, people playing a video game OFFLINE AND WITH KTHER PEOPLE? The horror! *clutches pearls*
I completely get why they did it but that should also work with this guy to patch those holes like that kid who worked with Apple to patch their security holes that the jail breakers were using
let us have our mods for open.net like the original dont leave us mod fans out of having fun,
The big question is: if D2R is an overlay, as is believed to be the case because you can toggle between the graphic sets, does that mean ATMA will work with it? I had no interest in Diablo 2 MP, PVP or laddering, and I was pretty burned out on regular offline play, but being able to edit saves to try out weird and wonderful builds like melee Sorc and spell Druid was fun.
Well, this was very likely to happen. Still, hopefully it served to show where the faults in their security lie, and help make the game better for everyone!
The issue here isn't the fact that he created modding software for the game, the issue is the fact that his software bypassed the anti-cheat client, and circumvented the game's firewalls to allow him to access the game for free This guy literally created software that people could use to pirate the game illegally if they so chose, even if that wasn't his original intention Blizzard is totally right to give him a CAD order, as what he did could potentially enable piracy (which again, is illegal) if it falls into the wrong hands, which if you read the story, it did.
People are going to read the article title and kneejerk reaction off of it.Blizzard: stops people from essentially pirating the game and breaking the anticheatPlayers: "Blizzard is the devil"blizzard does a lot of stuff wrong, but it's silly when people vilify blizzard for something like this.
"Dear Sir, You are hereby ordered to cease this crap cause you're making us look bad. Desist immediately and focus your attention on Diablo Immortal. You have a phone don't you? Yours truly, Corporate Lawyers."
What if the guy was not in the US? Would Blizzard still have legal powers to do anything? I highly doubt it.Instead of sending a cease and desist they should be working with the guy in some capacity to fix the issues, there are obvious problems and telling someone to "Please stop breaking our game" is only going to make more people want to break the game.
