I do think the amazing run bitcoin has been on is just about over. The world has been made aware of bitcoin and thus it has been thrust into the national spotlight. Countries like south korea and japan have already begun placing regulations on Bitcoin and its only a matter of time before other countries begin placing strict regulations on it.

Bitcoin became popular due to its anonymity. At one point you could buy bitcoin and it was basically untraceable. Unless someone came under heavy scrutiny it wasn't possible for bitcoin transactions to me monitored.
Many marketplaces on the darknet don't even allow bitcoin anymore because it isn't secure. If there very people who made bitcoin popular stop using it I don't see how anyone can expect it to continue to thrive.

There are lots of other crypto currencies much more secure than bitcoin but in the end none of them are investable. Buying any cryto currency for the purposes of investment is akin to gambling. Could you make money doing it? Sure. Is it a smart thing to do with hard earned money? All successful investors agree unison thats its not a smart thing to do.

Anyone who doesn't have a master tag attached to their account is allowed to play in this tournament.
Your more than welcome to play in either or both tournaments. Simply join the tournament channel no later than 3pm eastern this coming Saturday or Sunday. Ill add you to the bracket when I see you join.

I can totally dissect every single stat of every building from the moment it's placed, and every unit from the moment it is created. I can watch the internal state of every peon as it leaves a mine, returns to a hall, transitions to inside the hall and drops its gold then leaves the hall and heads back to the mine. I can watch the targets of every grunt change from one unit to the next. I can see the planned pathing of every unit 20 steps ahead of where It decides what to do (yes it is 20 steps). I can track the training progress of every unit in real time as it is being trained ...... and I can dump all of this to a file 10 times a second .... IDK probably 50 times a second, but what's the point?

You would be surprised how many top players have actually done just this. I remember Shotgun once quizzing me asking "how many bags of gold are in 12.""How long does it take for 2 to run out." Players do actually fight down to the steps of peons.

 
There was a new player playing gow. Not a total noob, he understood the game. I think he was an old player who had come back to check out the server. He starts complaining that the guy rushing him is hacking. I tell him to STFU because he's just a noob and doesn't understand how good players build... the usual.... but his reply surprised me. It wasn't just crying he simply said that it was impossible to have that many grunts (think it was 8?) that early in the game. I still told him to shut up... but actually I noticed it did seem strange, so I checked it out and sure enough, his opponent was just flooding him with impossible grunts. Why? Because the guy was a nobody so his opponent thought it was ok to not "click twice like a gentleman".

Well that's unfortunate always sucks to see a new players come and leave shortly after.

Been following this thread for a bit.
Looks like this started a couple days ago when Lambchops and u8 were in a 3v3 gow game I was hosting. Lamb was at 5 and u8 was at 11. u8 went to attack Lamb at 5 and saw him Lust with the double click macro and called him out on it. u8 also made a thread here,

http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,3765.0.html

This whole issue with double click macro was addressed months ago in this thread

http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,2154.msg37404.html#msg37404

Double click macro was readily available in the download section of the server. After some deliberation it was decided to be cheating and was then removed.
Using a double click macro is considering cheating but it's not an offence that warrants a ban.
There is currently no way to prove someone is programming a key to create macros.

Lamb is saying this-

I'm saying this game is full of people hacking. Many of them are people I like. Can't really blame people for wanting to stay competetive. I can provide a full analysis of what everyone is doing - but I dont want to spoil the game. If more people are happy to keep hacking then whatever, I think it's a mistake but  hf.


I disagree with the assessment that "most players" on the server are hacking however I accept that our AH isn't that great and can be bypassed.

The current anti-hack does not even disable the warcrap map hack


That is incorrect I believe. The current AH does detect all the hacks from warcrap provided someone isn't using the old
 war2 CD rom.

TBH one of the main factors in I stopped developing the anti-hack was that as far as I could tell, nobody just wanted to stop the hacking, they wanted to let people hack but have proof. Four years later when the the anti-hack project was finally completed and it doesn't seem to do anything much. Can anyone explain to me why the EF_GAMEBOT makes games all day with a nice green [AH] next to it's name?


Lance was the one that created the EF_GAMEBOT it is meant to host games for players who are brand new to the server and don't know how to host games. At one point anyone could whisper the bot and request a game to be made.(idk if this is still possible.)


The current AH does do something. Are there ways around it sure. IL is fairly busy however he has indicated he is willing to accept help from outside sources to speed things along.
If you are able to make a better AH I invite you to do just that. Idk what happened 4 years ago but I will tell you if you are able to make a better AH the community would love to see it.

Finally I will say there is no actual proof u8 hacks.
Players are allowed to voice suspicions of top players however without actual evidence it doesn't make sense to continually voice their suspicions.

@mousEtopher

Out of curiosity what was it that made you decide to make BS a mod? Was it because you thought she would make the forums more active? Was it because you thought she would do a good job?

Lol. Seems like it makes you both happy to see bitcoin lose value.

You know I wonder why all BS is talking about is islam.
She probably thinks about islam more than most muslims do.

It's clear your main objective is to "win the argument." Which is very childish.

@~ToRa~

I actually clicked BS's last post.

You are mental if you really think anyone on an internet forum cares about you enough to want you "killed, stoned, tortured, euthanized, or whatever.
Its clear your main objective is to "win the argument."
Which is very childish.
The fact every one of your posts are usually 5 paragraphs or more shows how much you care about winning arguments with strangers on the internet.

The fact that your average post is less than one paragraph shows how little you have in your brain to win arguments with.


Ever stop to think I just don't care that much. Your nobody.
