I think we should tackle bots 1st even though it is difficult by itself.
yea, without bots, i think there would be a slight decrease in p2w, due to no one new being targeted.
I wish but would be impossible.
i mean you could just close alll the known rwt sites. it would set them back a bit, then ban all the fresh accounts with 0000 gear and only items on them (the weird “unnamed” ones anyway), and boost droprates for tradeable items to encourage actually playing the game.
Easier said than done mate. Trying to close them down, the question is: how to do it?
I wish, but then it faced criticisms…
closing down sites is going to be hard as you’d need to contact google and basically most search engines. Realm itself isn’t very large and probably would get little to no attention from most search engine providers.
Deca has to add a better anti-cheat but i don’t think they should go as far as with what valorant’s anti-cheat does. If you don’t know what it does is it scans all your files to check for programs and if it finds something that declares it a hack for example certain clients then you’d be banned from the game (don’t know fully how exactly you’ll get banned but i know how they check it).
It posses risks such as security issues, i wouldn’t want some company scanning all my files and potentially stealing data and looking at private data which i don’t trust with any company no matter what they say.
Boosting droprates for items would just fluctuate the economy more making t12 and t13 tops worthless so that’s a very don’t to go path.
You don’t contact a search provider to deal with the website? If a legal entity wants to shutdown a website, it’s done through legal efforts against the offending party. You could potentially ask the domain provider or web host to cease their services, but they have no legal obligation. In this case, it would be a matter of international law.
As stated previously, a programming solution to this problem is likely the only viable method. Anti-RWT measures are already proven to work across a myriad of platforms.
Valorant’s anticheat is industry standard. The only reason you care about a kernel based anti cheat, is because of the media uproar about it. Kernel based anticheats exist in a plethora of games, and isn’t some communist or malicious threat. People who actually care about monitoring their computer on a kernel basis, aren’t installing games on their work/programming/hacking systems.
People need to understand that EVERYTHING you use on your PC - whether that’s your mouse drivers, GPU drivers, your web browser, every game you’ve ever installed, every tool or program you install, even the Windows OS itself is a potential attack vector. Pretty much nothing you use is 100% secure and there’s always potential for someone to make targeted malware or attack you through almost anything.
Steam, for example, has had 2 local privilege escalation exploits in recent times, which are actual attacks that could be successfully performed and used to malicious infect or destroy/steal someone’s OS install/data.
Source Engine, Valve’s engine used in most of their games, had 2 Remote Code Execution exploits that allowed malicious people to Remote Code Execute across the internet to anyone in the same server as them, allowing malicious code to be used to infect or destroy/steal someone’s OS install/data.
Those are things that factually existed, whereas these potential Vanguard attacks are just theoretical ATM. (and Riot has a pretty squeaky clean track record when it comes to these kind of attacks existing in their main product League of Legends so far)
And yet I’m sure a lot of the people worried about Vanguard are probably using Steam or play Valve games.
Not that that’s a bad thing…just people need to realize that most stuff you plug into your PC and anything you install or use are really not that much safer. Whenever you choose to use anything on a PC you are tacitly agreeing to making your PC less safe and less secure whether you realize it or not. Everything is a risk.

You sound both paranoid and uninformed. You wouldn’t be using macOS or Windows, if you truly cared about privacy.
