quote: 'But that suckiness doesn't justify Blizzard's latest technique for weeding out cheaters. According to the World of Warcraft terms of service, when you install the latest version of World of Warcraft, an anti-cheat program called Warden snoops through your entire computer looking for "unauthorized third-party programs" that allow "cheating of any kind" and that allow users to "hack" or "modify" the online game environment. '
What do u think about this system? tell on this thread. Dunno if its true, it sounded a bit funny.
I think its a bit weird: spying whole computer for just a few hacks. They could just build a detecter in the game, so u get ip ban immediatly when a hack is located.
Here it says it only detects dll's that are started running In W0w so i dont think it reads everything. But another problem: doesnt this caus lag? If it runs every 15 seconds???!
The warden then uses the GetWindowTextA function to read the window text in the titlebar of every window. These are windows that are not in the WoW process, but any program running on your computer. Now a Big Deal.
This changes whole thing: it also reads other programms?
Maybe another problem: doesnt your scanners on ur pc (virus scan, spyware scan) have problems with the spyware? Like: 'spyware detected'
This is blizzards reply to the second link. It says in short that the programm doesnt read personal things , it does only slow ur pc down as much as u open a single mail...
Just try and find out >_<...

( ) i agree ( ) i disagree ( ) wtf? do i look like i know this stuff?
now i admit that im not a computer freak, but i do know some stuff concerning computers. i dont care about the users end license agreement, cuz i just spent crazy bucks on something, why should i click on disagree? it doesnt install if you do:rolleyes: .
nonetheless, leave the snooping programs of my computer, blizz. i dont hack anyway. on the subject, dont u guys love that xp error message: send to microsoft? oh yeah, give em permission to see all the pirated stuff like songs etc, and blacklisted programs too. sometimes i wonder why windows even tries that...

Of all things important in Online Gaming, there is one thing no game developer can "fix" - it's community.
i think that as long as they dont mess with your other computer stuff its ok. i mean i dont have anything to hide.
delete your porn, burn your stuff onto disks if your that paranoid of not wanting someone seeing it. personally i dont care as long as they dont use it for evil. they can scan my background processes if they want as long as they dont mess with them. i mean, why would i care unless i hacked???
once upon a time i filled the 30 gigabytes of extra space with porn. then i deleted it and filled it up again with brand new stuff. i am more ashamed of it now that i feel more mature. it is a dirty confession.
heads will roll if i dont get something of my colossal expectations. i will go on rampages from arizona accross the world slaying massive crowds with two swords. as i grow in power from those i slay i grow faster and stronger. my swords also become more and more powerful, so powerful that i can obliterate a giant masses of hundreds in a slash. eventually in my bloodthirst i will be viewed from tv asking blizzard to take back their game and remake it to my expectations. they will have one year.
during this year i will search the lands for the ancient dragons of lore who will give me more knowledge in magic. my quest will inspire them to join me and recruit all other dragons under their command. i will have an army of dragons and the powers to stop all forces opposing me except for Silver and his silver inferno crusading knights.
"why do you do this??" he will ask me.
"i was a mere man once. a man with resonable expectations for six years of waiting. i waited in vain. i have given the free people of blizzard an ultimatum. the fate of mankind, nay, of all three realms rest on their shoulders."
"you dont have to do this. you were one of us once!!!"silver responds.
"once when i was young and happy. now i am a torn man, all dreams destroyed by this company." looking to the rest of the army behind silver ill says "you may all bow to me and live or stand against me and die."
"i will not allow this!!! you have gone too far. by the powers of righteousness and lord God of Diablo3.com, my army of light will defeat you and you will taste your judgement."
Silver draws his sword and raises it high over his head. at his side darkjay and elfen lied do this as well.
"i was once your freind, a comrad in battle. now we face each other in battle." with that the two forces clashed, disturbing the balance of earth. who will win?? who is on who's side?? who is right in this fight??
