Re: Please BAN ISE: EDO top 10 prize already hacked...

As one delusion poster notedt:

 

"As (user) pointed out ISE does not hurt Home or any game play in Home.  The only game developers hurt by this are the very few that work on the gift machine.  This in many ways is there [sic] own fault by letting the ISE exploit work with the gift machine.  As I pointed out a few times now NO ONE else or no other developers are getting hurt by this."

This might be the reason why Home hasn't been announced for the PS4. :smileysad:

This is terrible. Everyone who worked so hard in EDO and they just hacked it and got the rewards? That is extremely unfair...action seriously needs to be taken against this now, especially for the people who actually do work hard and earn it!

You know the ISE crowd is reading this and giggling. And as Firefly said these rewards if earned correctly require a purchase to play and complete. Stealing these rewards on a whole sale basis is basically stealing money from the developer.

 

I'm sure the Halloween Event over at the Island is similar. Why buy an outfit to fly and earn the rewards if you can simply give a 10 or 20 dollar PSN card to someone to get them and who knows how many other items without earning them.

The people who do this always give the same arguments:

 

1) The rewards are free, therefore it isn't stealing.

 

2) They have to work, therefore they shouldn't have to invest any time or effort to earn the rewards.

 

It's not amusing or surprising. I'm pretty sure everybody in the top 1000 spent money to have a chance at earning the prizes. Also pretty sure many of them worked their rear off both in game and in real life. I know I did. It's not cool. :smileysad:

That why more developers should use the voucher code method to give the rewards to the winners like the people who got the jackets at the casino

Now that I think about it you're right. At least those items remain unique. Good thing to know that the people who have them, deserved them, not some hacker :smileysad:

Another alternative would be to issue companion or furniture items as a reward that has the winner's name in the title.

Such as "Leestone71's Samurai Guardian" or "Leestone71's Luxurious Banquet Table".

That probably is unfeasible. Creating thousands of codes would probably have some sort of logistic difficulty. Otherwise we would have seen more of this already. 

 

One method that might work is a method IREM used in the past. Upon completion of their last April Fools event, you were teleported to a special area. There was no way to reach that area unless you completed the event. It's an isolated area of the same lounge so you are still ini the same "lounge" but just a different room. Friends can't teleport to you.And in there was a special store where you could "buy" rewards for supercheap. Like a penny. Since it IS a purchase, its treated much differently by Sony and the hacking community.
