Instructions on how to report players for in-game exploits/cheats/hacks

If you want to experience true conan cancer i invite you to take a stroll through server 1931, home of the chinese and brazilians. you will be filing those exploit/cheats/hacks forms all night.

Quite frankly, i am wounding if steam will refund me. I am just… done.

Why so much drama? You put the info out there already. Things aren’t going to fix themselves, and certainly not instantly. Sit back and let things work.

For me:

its due to being outright ignored.

My posts being deleted, even when they do not break any rules.

Its paying for a game and the DLC that you simply can not play.

This would/is be a legitimate fear. The fear should for the cheater not the rest of the server.

The answer was given in this thread

This thread is NOT about you CChoom nor do I appreciate you tainting this thread with your angry agenda which you have been spewing all over this website and others. Please re-read the original post, this is to get clarification from a Customer Service or Community Mgr on how to officially report to Funcom, a player that is exploiting/hacking/cheating in Conan Exiles.

Oh and incidentally, since the posting of your video we had someone that had never crashed the server before, crashing it last night using the technique you outlined so nicely for him and has been doing it for the last 90 minutes again today. So please stop suggesting that publicly posting ‘how to’ on exploits helps as it absolutely negatively impacted the server I am on with someone new using it and mentioning the ‘how to’ is now posted on YouTube suggesting others follow his lead and do it as well.

Thanks for the link Melcom but this appears to apply only to harassment and griefing issues which as you know, is very subjective when it comes to any pvp game. I am not asking for any type of mmo in-game remedy for griefing, I am asking for an official way to report players actively using exploits/cheats/hacks.

If Funcom has zero ways to officially report exploiting/cheating/hacking for investigation, this would indicate that they do not feel it is a priority and those of us trying to report through what we think are valid avenues and hanging in there waiting for a remedy, can move on to other games where the devs do care enough about the player base to at least have a reporting channel for players grossly abusing the system.

I personally think the following quote contains an important point

In other games I have played, making information public helped.

For example, there was nothing stopping one or two clans from raiding with impunity but being completely safe from retaliation. If only one or two clans on one or two servers knew how, then it is easy to ignore. You just illustrated that by showing you didn’t care when it was happening to him and only started to care when it started happening to you too.

Once everyone knows how to do it, it is likely to jump from the bottom of a todo list to the top of a critical patch/hotfix needed list.

Melcom. What would be a suggested ETA for action to be taken when absolute proof has been provided ?

you have video, screen shots, times, data, names, clans…I mean what the hell does it take…well the answer is all the servers crashing costing them money

I do not work for Funcom so I have no idea

Thank you for replying.

How is server crashes going to cost Funcom Money?

Players have the options of playing on private servers, renting a server which they will control, and playing Solo/Co-op.

If they are unhappy with their current server, they can moved to another server or play alone/with a friend. If they are only wanting someone to be punished for their being unhappy, that will not happen as there will always be someone making them unhappy about something.

I saw the point Melcom, are you suggesting that if someone is crashing the server that any community member on this website can be sent a pm with details and this is the official channel of communication for exploits such as intentional server crashes?

Im sorry to hear that someone on your server has decided to crash it last nigh and 90 minutes today. Has your server come back up since and worked fairly well?

I’ve reported Chinese streamer several times, he openly uses the undermesh exploit on official server, he shows how it’s done on stream. I think if you complain and complain over and over again to g-portal admins, they might delete undermesh structures. But that’s about it.

That community manager comment is just so awkward. Yes they might have 1k servers in total, but how many of them are actually populated? How many of them are PvP PC servers that’s are mostly affected by exploit abusers?

Undermesh exploit exist for several month now, devs keep fixing it and then reintroducing it over and over again with new content. :man_facepalming:

I think that not every one understands that it’s actually as severe as duping. From game mechanic point of view, if you are building in undermesh you are saving on crucial resource that is used in making explosives Steelfire. So you can be overly aggressive and put all your efforts and resources in raiding. Then snowball effect kicks in. Wipe the map clean and proceed to another server.

We have cheaters on 1124. We’ve reported them every which way. We’ve jumped through all the hoops, tried every suggestion, provided every bit of evidence from several people in different formats. They are still there a month later doing exactly the same things bold as brass.

So you know what’s happened? Another clan on our server, previously legit, has learned to undermesh and is now doing it to protect their assets from the original cheaters. They dont want to lose months of their time to cheaters so they see the only way to avoid this is to cheat too. They’ve told others how to do it too!

Well played Funcom. We can be the victim, we can be the cheater or we can leave.

Half the server wont cheat to win and have left. What remains is a complete mess.

Funcom’s reputation is also taking a severe battering. Let’s face it, they either dont care or have very strange ideas about how to stop cheats. Currently it amounts to hoping the cheaters get bored and leave.

Funcom should take responsibility for the terrible experiences people are having with their product and take some sort of visible action.

Other games have cheats, and other companies do what they can to stop those cheats; including bans.
