    You mean in era of billion cheap pajeet coders multibillion corporation doesn't care to even implement simple qol feature?

    You can hire million pajeets to add purchases to cart by hand and still get profits, but epic is too cheap for it.

    1click buy is QOL feature. Adding another screen to my purchase is anti-thesis of QOL.

    Considering people like you they should also make queues for digital world. Or even better pay 1€ for privileged os using shopping cart and those shopping carts should be finite for full immershiun.

    Oh wait there were some idiots like that in the world. I found right company for you to hang with:

    Nigga, i was born in USSR and saw this shit in my childhood. You go to shop in one of the rare days they sell meat(in the middle of the night, because there is already lots of people waiting for opening), stand in line for few hours, get your 1,5kg meat allowed for one person and go to the end of the line to stand again for a chance to buy another 1,5 kg. And all your family in same line for more chances.

    So fuck off with your propaganda.

    Was born in communism but didn't really "live" in it.

    My father loves though to joke how he was going to buy toilet paper and had to bring plums to change for meat which then was changed to chocholate which then gave you ability to buy toilet paper from your neighbours since they were working in factory that stocked toilet paper non stop.

    Like fallout but in real life but without bottlecaps.

    Gaming is such a serious business that we have to drag cheaters in court!

    Dafuq is this shit?

    If you think someone isn't playing fair just don't invite him to play FFS. Even kids know this.

    I meant Epic, don't be daft.

    They can ban someone, temporarily or permanently, instead of going to fucking court. But maybe they didn't develop the feature yet?

    Cheating in a video game is not a crime and anyone who supports this farce deserves to be sent to mainland China

    Yes, they can ban a player in a free to play game. Very effective. I see you're an expert.

    If your 12 year old son downloads an aimbot there are grounds to sue him in a civil court case.

    It's tied to an Epic account. They can ban it. They can IP ban. And if he uses a VPN and creates many accounts, they'll just have to hunt him down again, learn to identify him. Eventually he'll tire out. Whatever.

    But you don't go trying to fix a very minor offense by making a bigger one yourself, in this case dragging a kid to court.

    You're very naive if you think hackers will "eventually tire out", especially in free to play games. These are, 80% of the times, mentally ill people with about 10 smurfs on average. Even linking your account to your phone number isn't a very effective way, because these people go to the lengths of getting different burner phones just to keep hacking.
    If these people are hurting your customers and by extension your business, you should have every right to legally pursue the matter. If they're "just a kid", then don't worry, no court will throw them in jail for it. Every civilized country has legislation for minor offenders.

    If cheating is a problem, fix the exploits.

    If the same person keeps finding exploits, hire him.

    If the same person keeps using exploits created by others, flag his account so he only joins matches with other cheaters.

    Ah yes, that totally solves the problem of alternate accounts.
    And the idea of rewarding cheat makers by giving them all jobs? Sublime. Not only is it completely sustainable, but also behaviour you want to promote.

    If you are dealing with dumb schoolkidz, who just use cheats made by others, you ban them and fix the exploits they used = problem solved
    If there's a kid that comes up with new exploits faster then you fix them (and faster then your test team discovers them), yeah, fucking hire him and replace your test team

    I want more cheaters. The more cheaters there are the less people will play multiplayer games and the more focus will be on single player games.

    Fuck multiplayer games. (co-op games are ok though)

    Everything required for aimbots (final render and input) have to be on the client. How the actual fuck do you expect to fix it server side?
