I saw a piece of news on the BBC a few days ago about Blizzard suing a company in Germany over a piece of software that they released which allows players to cheat.
I fully understand why Blizzard does this as it adversely affects the playing experience of other users. I’ve never played an MP game but I can see why other people cheating would be really frustrating to those that don’t.
Even though I pay little to no attention to Valve’s MP IPs I do hear about VAC bans and other items related to cheating on its servers. Cheating is one (of the many) reasons I don’t like Association Football (footie to many English people, soccer to North American and futball to millions of others). Watching players purposefully try to convince the referee that they have been fouled or injured really busts my bullsquids.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand.
We have all, yes even you at the back, have used cheats when playing half-Life maps and mods. Sometimes because the designer has made a badly balanced/designed area or because it’s broken. Can you imagine playing any Half-Life game without the console available? No, me neither.
But that is what it is like for many SP games. If you could simply spend a few bucks/euros/pounds to make you life easier or even to have a little fun, would you do it?
Me? Probably not but mostly because I hate spending money and feel that if the game is badly balanced, I shouldn’t have to pay to fixed it.
Of course, in the competitive and often immature world of Multiplayer, the “rules” of conduct are completely different.
Would you pay for a cheat tool for a SP game?
