Hmm...I never knew EQ had a problem with people hacking. Not sure what you can hack to ruin the game for others.

Oldschool EQ didn't use instancing for dungeons or bosses, which is primarily what progression servers deal with since they move back to non-instancing. Other players hacking could very easily deprive non-cheating players from being able to experience dungeon or boss content.

This is the game I figured would go F2P with SOE... kinda wish they would.

Unfortunate, but it seems to be a trend with Sony. Planetside has had hacking problems for ages. However, I've never heard of malicious hacking attempts like this in an EQ type MMO, let alone THE EQ game itself.

How ridiculous. Dont make new stuff till the stuff you already have WORKS. It's pretty damn simple.

Typical SOE... We know there is a major issue but will continue to blindly work on our next quick cash grab instead of investing into the future of our games.

Wow, s'more of that typical hubris one can always expect from SoE.

In other words, "We're too busy making new content, screw the current content and the overall health of the game!"

Thats the problem. They are concentrating on yet another wortless expansion. Every year ANOTHER xpac comes out, all with either an AA/level increase and a few new high level zones and dungeons. Instead of spending the time to make the xpac WORTH IT, its the same thing - wayyyyy too early. If one was out every 2 years, it would be worth the wait and they could spend time on hacking which is 10000x more important to ALL PLAYERS, than another small xpac.

I can't believe anyone still pays $15/month to play this ancient game and I really can't believe anyone bothers to hack it. That's like stealing quarters so you can play Pong.

@demonlife

And what, exactly is your problem with Pong? Ehh?

The Warp hacks have been known of, and ignored by SoE since Kunark at least, although back then they were used primarily to get you into places you normally could not go, and allowed you to farm levels at an extreme rate. Every server had a few people using the dark arts; they were generally the ones maxing at cap so fast it defied logic.
