Someone is hacking your servers...

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Not sure what you guys are doing but people are hacking your servers and nothings being done about it.  All morning there'e been a guy named red_spartan_pc that's been throwing cages over people when trying to hand in missions, blowing you up while running across the map or sucking everyone and every NPC to the middle of nowhere non stop so it's impossible to play.  I spent 30 bucks so far just teleporting back to where i was and have now given up all together. 

 

I didn't spend the money I did on this game to have it turn into GTA carpet bombing BS.  Do something about it please...

 

You seriously have more security to post in your forums than while playing...  Had to click your damn pictures for validation like 8 different times and look up some stupid answer to a random question just to post while this moron is going and ruining the game with nothing being done about it.

There was a way to get a solo lobby, but guess what. Rockstar messed that up this past week. We see where their priorities are. Award hackers/modders by forcing people into lobbies with them. Punish people who want nothing to do with those mental cases by not allowing private lobbies.

 

They can use any rationalization they want, but if they aren't going to protect players from people who can get those players banned through mod tricks then they should have solo lobby options.

FYI, we're not an official Rockstar forum (just a fansite) so we can't do much about it. You can try to air your grievances at https://support.rockstargames.com or use one of our existing topics for it.

It's gotten really bad tonight, I honestly have never sen it this bad. It's like you have one on every server there is. It's insane. I tried server hopping six or seven times and finally gave up, RDR Online is a bust for me. I think I am finished with it until they give us private lobbies. And if that never happens, well....guess I am just done. Really loved the Online version too, put a ton of hours into it over the past couple of months.

I'm with ya.

 

With the number of hours I've put in and all the progress, money and gold I've gotten, I can't afford getting banned cuz some hacker decided to frame me with their "blow up everyone on the server then make it look like someone else did it" game.

On a positive note, that happened to me, and I was reported several times by a great number of players. I didn't get banned. I think Rockstar is hip to how that works. The only real option Rockstar has to fix this issue (since they are clearly too incompetent to prevent hackers from invading their games) is to grant players the power to create private lobbies. And since they removed the ability for us to do it ourselves,l the burden now rests on Rockstar's shoulders to put in place an option for players to use at will.

 

Cross your fingers.

I'm glad you didn't get banned, but I'm not going to risk it. At my rank they may think I got up there by using mods.

 

You're right about the ball being in Rockstar's court now. The best way to fight hackers is to allow people to have servers with their friends so hackers are in lobbies with other hackers. Let them have at each other.

 

We'll see what happens with the next major update. With the moonshiner update they improved the defensive mode, made it so you could prevent people from removing carcasses from your horse or have access to your wagon and changed a few more things to make it harder for the people who just want to screw with others.

That could use a further update imo, heh.

Hey, I'm new to RD Online, rank 7. Really love a lot about this game and was pretty hyped for playing online with my brother.

 

But so far I've been harassed by griefers, blown up multiple times by hacker-spawned dynamite, had my horse go critical again and again just while walking through a field (I'm guessing hackers rather than a glitch), experienced weather flicking through different modes every couple of seconds, and various other bs. And from what you guys are saying, it seems I haven't experienced the worst of it by a long shot.

 

When I first started experiencing this, my first instinct was to start a private session, figuring that there was no reason for Rockstar not to include that here as they do in GTA Online. Well great, it's not here because ..? because RS want a living world full of immersive player interaction?  Fantastic, I'm sure the current state of things is just what was envisioned.

With the history of hacking in GTA they knew it would happen with this too, especially since they did nothing to prevent it. It doesn't seem like they are going to make any effort to prevent it in the future. There was a way to get a private session until a few weeks ago. THAT is something Rockstar makes an effort to prevent. Griefers are one thing because you can learn to deal with them. Hackers are another thing entirely, especially since their actions can result in an innocent person getting blamed, reported, banned and have all their progress reset to zero. Rockstar should not be forcing players to have to take that risk to play a damn game but it appears Rockstar is doing just that. Fortunately, for me, there are other games I enjoy so I don't need Rockstar.

I've been grinding Collector lately and I've only found Rockstar Message hackers on PC. Never been blown up or anything else of the sort. I've been griefed but it was by real people ambushing me, not hackers.

Don't know if I mentioned it, but when you get that Rockstar message on your screen, check to see if your camp and stable fees are charging you more and happening more often. That is the hack they use to drain your $ quicker.

Oh sh*t, really? The first time I found that I changed sessions in case I started to be blown  up or something but the 2nd time I ignored it and the guy disappeared by himself, guess I was paying more for my camp and stable. Will be on the look out next time, thanks.

Not all hacks attack you in a way you will notice. There are some subtle things. They can place "treasures" in the game and if you collect them they report you for cheating. If you see a "treasure box" just laying around, don't collect what's in it. To be safe, only collect treasures from maps.

 

There is the money draining hack I mentioned above.

 

They have a multitude of tricks in their arsenal.

 

As far as the transport everyone in the server and set them on fire/blow them up thing, you'll run across it eventually. When you do, do not report the person that pops up on your screen as the one that killed everyone. The hacker picked that person as the culprit and you'll be reporting an innocent person.

 

Then you have the one where they drop predators on top of you. That can also happen in your camp. I've had Grizzlies suddenly appear in my camp. The predator one is mostly a pain in the ass, not really anything to get you in trouble.

 

Time of day makes a difference since most of the serious hacking happens during hours Asians are awake. When I'm in lobbies full of Asian names, that's when I get attacked most frequently. They are 11 hours ahead of USA Central time.

Some of us thought 2020 would introduce flying cars, but instead, it's a cyber world. Rockstar Games have lost their minds.

Yeah it's seriously uninspiring that Rockstar decided it's a good use of resources to patch methods for getting into a private session. People were resorting to that to partially make up for the fact that RS inadequately prepared for a very foreseeable hacker problem which persists without a fix in sight. Terrible priorities.

 

Btw that hack where they drop predators on you is also something I've experienced; my joy way lions. yay. Well I guess that was a little funny..

 

My brother and I have continued to experience hacks. More spontaneous horse dying and other crap. And there isn't a day go by when I'm not seeing weird 'Rockstar' messages pop up; usually multiple times across multiple sessions. Haven't experienced the teleport everyone feature yet though, so I guess that's something to look forward to.

It appears that in the weekly udate a few weeks ago Rockstar has done some major banning. In the times I've been on, 2-5 hours each day, I've experienced only 2 cases of hackers. Those 2 were in the morning when Asians and Russians are more prevelant. However, it does appear Rockstar is finally doing something. There will probably be a spike in about a month when the initial bans for those hackers expire, but the 2nd time they receive permanent bans. I've been reading some forum where hacker users go to talk about getting banned, why they got banned and for how long. Some said they'll wait out the 30 days and be back.

 

Here's what I don't understand. All their progress was reset. They know Rockstar has finally taken serious steps to deal with them and they will, almost certainly, get caught and receive a permanant ban. So what's the point in doing it again, other than just to mess with people? What a bunch of morons. I wonder if they've ever actually tried playing a game legit or do they exist just to screw with people.

This is why I quickly left the PC version and went back to PS4 after about a month, at least it's "honest" and you avoid script idiots, and hence 99% of the worst grief morons.

 

That said I uninstalled it accidentally as well and now it wants me to buy it again not registering that my account owned it, so that could be another reason too erm, Yeah like I am going to pay twice to be molestered by idiots.
