    All you could do, is make an announcement saying AHK isn't allowed to be used. They could try to block it, but with two steps these blocks can be bypassed, just like in other games!

    EAC is made by Epic, I'm sure their software can identify patterns. My guess is players are flagged for being suspicious , and then monitored by EAC. Fortnite has a huge problem, due to the amount of players they have to do with, so banning a cheater may take months! On ROA, it should be a lot faster! I don't know how EAC works, but I'm sure it's more than capable of detecting cheaters!

    If you suspect a cheater, use the ingame reporting system!

    Not sure why people would support AHK if you know its giving players aim advantages over you.

    Because AHK has other, legit uses. Like binding keys on your mouse that are not recognized in game. Also there is and will always be a list of software that would replace AHK.

    Again - I'd rather see skills/spells (mostly rays) with no travel time (instantly delivered when button is released) removed to make aimbotting not efficient no matter the tools/software one uses. Imagine archer with aimbot - it would be disadvantage instead of advantage because arrow needs time after release to reach its target.

    And to all that think that the game would be then less skillful - bullshit, it would be the other way around. There is nothing skillful in shooting rays compared to hitting flying targets with rockets in quake. Same would happen here - bolts would become new rays. Less cheating, higher ceiling.

    Give me aimbot and fight me as a destroyer and tell me im at a disadvantage. Youre right though arrow travel will be a factor but not if im pegging you within ray range. Not that I need an aimbot because I NEVER miss. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar :)

    It's fucking absurd to me that homie can literally post a video showing it work and people are still on the dont ban it train.

    It's absurd to me that you think that people who use it will not switch to something else providing same functionality the moment AHK is banned. As long as there is mechanic within the game that can be easily abused people will abuse it.

    I start to suspect that the strongest advocates for AHK removal are players who use something else to cheat already.

    Hey. Genius. THAT ISNT A REASON TO NOT BAN IT.

    That logic implies: "Why ban any form of cheating! Cheaters will just find another method to cheat!"

    Like... hello?

    harvesting bots seem like a problem

    aim bots seem like less of a problem EDIT: although folks who actually play seem to think its a big problem


    I thought the GM reply was clever.

    To me the funny thing is I can only imagine this fantastic "aim bot script" in action. I bet it works really well and gives a big advantage. I mean, it was tested in some demonstration duels right? Did he win these duels? Or was this more of a theoretical test of concept?

    Real world use? Anyone actually use a script like this to gain an actual in-game advantage? Still going with the "black pixel" theory?

    You guys are being stupid.

    This legitimately reminds me of the "bunny hop script troll" which would make me the dummy for taking you guys seriously. If that's the case, ok you got me. Good job.

    All I got from this topic is Lear got banned on one account so he made another ., oh and it definitely looks like Rex is using this script so I wouldn't be surprised if Sero and Lear both use this script., anyway nice topic and I agree it should be banned.

    He posted a video of it working pretty well against an EU player (whos hitbox is fucked).

    Why are you struggling with a cognitive dissonance? It's literally been proven to work.

    Ban AHK and watch what happens to me (PS: nothing will). I despise hacking. Theres no reason to play a game if all you're going to do is cheat.

    Has it though? I hear you say it has, and yet it hasn't been proven to me at all.

    No cognitive dissonance whatsoever.

    If he fights you, sero, with this script and beats you 3 out of 5 while trying hard, I will be convinced its both real AND (the important part) effective.

    The bunny hop script was just a troll in df. But actually aim bot - Dan made a real bunny hop script in RoA in ahk that worked flawlessly on flat ground. So it can be done lol but only on flat ground.

    I was skeptical at first because of "black pixel" but hes using infernal, I think the bloodcraft ribbon and what looks like something on FP. The infernal is definitely a more isolated colour, IDK about FP but it looked like it worked pretty good to me.

    Gotta love the hackusations. But yes, ban ahk. You dont have to be a pro scripter to use ahk in ways to get an advantage.

    The game has all the tools necessary for out of game script programs to be unneccessary.

    Just brush up on the parry and ray selection features then ban AHK and any programs like it.
