In the post above you'll see what happened. I became aware of cheat engine from doing a kane run with a random and it skipped my turn as well as friend till he turned it off it's my first time experiencing it in ranked so i'm shocked no one has posted anyhting about it either way I posted here cause I wanted people to get their attention and be aware this is happening? Ratbeard and the other developers are you aware that Cheat engine is a thing and can you please find a way to stop it?

That was the post for some reason it was deleted the video is up on youtube however under pirate101 cheat engine used in ranked

I made a post on this too.

I am sorry you had the unfortunate "honor" of facing Vito. I am glad that this topic is being brought to light though, as Cheat Engine has to stop.

To anyone reading this, Please watch out for Vito, Level 70 Buccaneer. He is a known exploiter and should be avoided!!!

Stay Safe,

Lieutenant

Let me just say, basically this is why so many people are leaving Pirate101. Lack of story updates leaves us with pvp, full of glitches, extremely cheap strategies, and people who if you talk with for more then 5 seconds you automatically dislike them. The beginning of this season after being inactive for SO long I started up ranked again, unfortunately 80% of my matches involve DISCORD, BOON, SCRATCH VA, GLITCH ABUSE, and extremely sour chat, literal ending game conversation: "GG," ",No! I was going easy on you loser I could of healed then killed you," ",You where cursed so no healing and if you shielded assassin would still kill," ",No I could of healed!" ",You where cursed I still had plenty of resources," ",I was going easy on you if I would of healed that last round then used assassin you would of died!" ",I had enough shields to survive 2 assasins and again you where cursed," Literally every other match I get in involves extremely long arguments featuring DISCORD, GLITCH ABUSE, BOON, SCRATCH VA. Seriously I just stopped ranked after I found out it's like this now.

I've heard rumors that a former Kingsisle employee said that cheat engine was bannable but I'm not sure if that's true considering the source isn't very credible

Post on Central seems to have been deleted :/

Either way it shouldnt prevent KI to look into it.

From "Towering Personalities" on April 4, 2016, Bonnie Anne replied:
Using Cheat Engine to "speed hack" is certainly against the rules. I mean, it's right there in the name. "Cheat".
If you find someone using this cheat, I say report them.

Using 3rd party software to interact with the game is indeed a violation of the ToU and a bannable offense, I just think it is difficult for them to prove.

Sadly, kids do not see the harm in this and just spread it to their friends, who again think nothing of the implications or that it is against the rules.

Yes, Central has a rule against naming names, even in such a situation as this. If the pirate's name was visible in the video, it isn't allowed.

I do minimal PvP, but I hope that this situation will be addressed, though. PvP should be as fair as possible.

I agree that cheat engine should be banned, mainly because people like Vito abuse it and win,(only because of engine).And we really should remove this problem before more people abuse it.

Wow. It's like Dark Souls where people use hacks to make them powerful and ban other people. Lets hope KI doesn't just ban the victims and ignore the problem.

Apparently the post is back... but I didnt watch the video to check if names were censored or whatnot...

Either way, this coupled with privy complaints isnt gonna get me back to pvp anytime soon I suppose.

My intention was to get this to the devs attention mainly Ratbeard since he's the most responsive and they can hopefully find a way to stop it.Since it happened to me I've found out other people have experienced it as well and thus it's a community problem. I'm not angry about the loss nor do I care about my opponent getting in trouble (if i could have edit his name out I would have but I don't have a video editing software >_< ).

I just don't want this to happen to me again or to any of my fellow players because for those of us that take time and effort into rank we Truly care about it and losing cause of a hack is frustrating to say the least.

If I heard it from another player so I wasn't sure if it was credible

Not only is cheat engine a problem in the PvP community and for the whole of Pirate
But I have a friend who is good with technology and he says that if someone can get into Kingsisle servers by not having strong protection
A player can disconnect another from Pirate101 for easy PvP wins or to just plain troll anybody who plays this game

Cheating is not a good thing and Kingsisle games is definitely a step in the right direction and a good example for all gaming entertainment companies to look at, I hope KI maintains fair play in their games
