Things cheaters will never have

Cheaters defined as hackers, botters, spammer supporters et al.

1. Friend they can trust to help them mule stuff. The amount of scamming that goes on at unnamed forum is testament to this.
2. The ability to take each piece of gear they have and tell a story.
3. Knowledge of the actual value of items, since this comes from trading and from using a gradient of gear.

In this thread we add on to the list, lets see how long we can get it.

Something cheaters will have done: dodged a video game.

Damn, that's weak.

50 years from now:

D2 scammer: Why, back in my day, I spent hours and hours cheating at a video game!
Grandkids: You're a loser, grandpa.
D2 scammer: That's what they said back then, too.

In all fairness, I suspect that most of these "cheaters" just don't like D2 all that much. They want a game like D2 where all items are easily accessible, and all the "glory" to be won is in pvp. They should just find another game.

I simply don't understand the cheat/dupe mindset. Why not find something else to do if this game isn't fun?

dude do you even know that most "cheaters" have multiple copys of cdkeys and they can mule on their own perfectly fine?

It affects everyone. It affects the economy, it affects dueling, it affects hardcore players (until they fixed the tppk), etc...

Everything has an effect.

I personally don't care. I do find the people defending cheating quite interesting.

People who cheat in a video game probably do the same in real life,its just a mindset I think.

Completely wrong and without any solid basis. Quite the opposite if you were to use your reason, botters and dupers are the heaviest 24/7 traders on Bnet, running multiple instances at once. Botting with one char and trading with the other at the same time .... Gradient of gear? Not sure what you mean :S

They also account for a huge part of the PVP community (sad but true), and they actually have a huge knowledge of the value of items, both value as in price and value as in its own intrinsic value and use.

Number 2 is true, its cool to say f.e. you found a COA or DFathom on your own when you were least expecting it (just an example).

Number 1 .... how can you be so sure of that?

I simply don't understand the cheat/dupe mindset. Why not find something else to do if this game isn't fun?
Let me just start by saying that I dont want to defend botters and couldnt care less if they disappear entirely overnight, but .... what is your idea of fun in this game? Could be fundamentally different to someone else's. I'm pretty sure they derive fun from something, no one wants to play a game to bore or even 'harm' theirselves. Your idea of fun might be finding the actual items yourself, these people on the contrary, want to find the items as quick as possible so that they can get to the fun of PvPing asap, for example. Or they might even just be heavily addicted to the trading aspect of the game, I know it can very well be so...

Right.

But, there are [probably] other games that give that without having to go through the trouble of botting and duping.

Cant tell if thats a serious or sarcastic answer XD.

Simple ... The other games are not D2? Contrary to what many ppl think, D2 pvp is very interesting and exciting. And even Pvp aside, I always felt Diablo was completely unique, simply can't compare the Diablo games to other games (Dont mention Revenant, Kult, Divinity, Torchlight .... they still lack something and I nearly played them all. Well lets just say D2 is simply in a league of its own, D1 has been replicated well in those games imo)

What about the thrill of going against the rules and being caught? Doesn't that count? Some people are really asking for that ban and have a smirk on their face just avoiding it.

Actually I ban people who cheat in the SPF.

Teaming or Trade in the SPF and cheat and you are gone.

We don't like them any more than you do.
