For the Record: Overlord confirms anti-cheat campaign
As I informed you earlier, measures are being taken to disable cheating mods. Previously, there were some doubts on that info, but now Overlord confirms it.
Specifically, he names following actions:
- Disable everything that gives any kind of advantage in direct form: laser-like pointer, transparent tree crowns, hit-box like skins in-game, etc
- Also there is an intention to disable mods that are using modified client scripts (automated fire extinguisher, automated repair kit, auto-shooting etc)
- Mods that are not related to scripts and only modifies visual side of UI will still be tolerable (WR efficiency mods, XVM, etc)
- Some mods can be integrated into the game client (which ones - under discussion).
Overlord states that the whole issue is a complex one and it will not be ready for 8.4.
