I am often annoyed by game hackers. I primarily play mk7 so that is my only reference point for encountering them. But I remember the first time I noticed one. It was before the race even started the track was getting bombarded with bombs and lightning strikes. At first I was like what the heck is happening but quickly caught on.

My initial strategy was to just continue the race and stay away, but that proved useless. Now if I encounter a hacker I just reset and return to the home screen before the game begins or if it's to late and the race starts I put it in reverse and force a communication error that exits me from the game.

I consider the trolls to be the racers that don't want to win. They just want to create havoc. They get red shells or stars and just cause mischief. They usually get last in every race. It's becoming very easy to spot and avoid them though.

So trolls I can deal with but hackers I don't have patience for. Seems like mk7 is super filled with hackers now a days and almost impossible to avoid at certain times.

Have you ever come across hackers or trolls in games you play?

Havent encountered trolls or hackers but I have come across tryhards, especially in Mario Kart 8. My favorite kind of gamer is the one who complains that people are being d*cks in games but then have the same edge themselves.

Not sure what a tryhard is? Sounds like your fav type of gamer is a hypocrite.

Being a troll or hacking seems like it would get boring very fast. I mean what's the point, really.

I'm not complaining as much as I am trying to see if it happens alot in other games and what the driving force might be behind it.

So is mk8 fun to play, never played it?

When I used to play Call of Duty 4 on the ps3, about 1 in 5 games used to be hacked which was annoying. I didn't mind the zombie mod servers so much but the servers with people on infinite health and killing all enemies with one shot were frustrating. The problem was even worse in world at war, with half of all games being hacked.

Don't play those much games anymore though, these days I only occassionaly pop in Counter Strike 1.6 online and I've not encountered a single server with hackers/cheaters since unlike call of duty, counter strike does have anti cheat measures and if those fail, hackers can be banned from the game by the admin.

Oh okay. Good to know a new phrase. Lol. So at first glance I might think hackers are tryhards but from their patterns it doesn't seem to be about winning to them. They could just rip around, do their laps quickly, and win. But they stick with the pack, blow people up, cause major devastation, and then finally win. It's like they aren't happy unless causing major carnage on the way to victory. Actually pseudo-victory.

So I might get a Switch this holiday season to play some MK on. That's probably pretty fun.

Half of all games being hacked really sounds horrible. Seems about the same as mk7, a 50/50 chance I can jump into a group of honest racers.

It's very difficult to get out of the groups sometimes also. I can shutdown and everything but get lumped in with the same group consistently. I don't know what's up with that. I do like the preview mode while waiting to race it shows current race in progress and I can see if it looks legit or head back to my home screen right away and not waste to much time.

MK7 has no anti cheat measures or admins.

Big Pokémon player, and its at it worse. :lol: Hack Pokémon all over GTS and Wonder trade. Why I was able to get 2 shiny 6iv Pokémon in 3 days on Wonder trade, and one of them is the legendary dog Raikou, shiny 6iv and supposedly from HGSS. Now with plenty of resets in HGSS you can get a shiny legend like Mewtwo or Raikou. 1 in 40000 or so. BUT to get it 6iv and right nature is even lower. I say the ODDS of it being hack is like 100 percent.

I'm sorry to say I know very little about Pokémon. But it sounds like you are figuring out ways to still whoop ace and be successful even with the hackers. Hooray to that!

You don't need hack mons to win, unless its something odd like a mon with the wrong ability(which has happen to me, ran into a fire Rotom with storm drain(Which pretty much makes water moves useless, and powers up the attack of the pokemon with Storm drain, and by the way Rotom does not get storm drain.)

Caught me off guard, lost and was pretty upset over that lost.
