Are you mentally disabled or didn't read the article? CIG didn't ask for more money, it asked for a loan in British pounds through a bank that will allow them to repay in USD so that they don't have to convert the crowding USD and EUR to GBP and don't have to pay the fee either. Plus they can do the tax rebate that way.
They're not corrupt. Well, they're that as well, but in case of copyright 99% of the time they protect the "local business" from the "foreign invaders". It's kind of state policy there to blatantly ignore international law in such matters.
This isn't just about video games. Cars, watches, clothing ... anything you can think of is probably cloned in China.
So they blatantly disregard international law while their "local businesses" wait for others do all the work spend on r&d and then just steal the fruits of other peoples labour? Thats not acceptable business practice anywhere in the world . Its theft plain and simple.
Im not a lawyer but from a player perspective there seems very little to no regulation and lots of grey areas with lots of gambling targeted at minors which is not "classed" as gambling that really needs to be looked at mobile and facebook games.
Exactly. To me this is good news so maybe we can get rid of these copy protection things that hinder my enjoyment.
Luckily we have some games on GOG.
I tend to agree. This seems like Blizzard attempting to brute force the shutdown of this "tool". Maybe they should focus on making their games more secure instead?
On the other hand, a lot of games these days come with anti-cheating tools, which can be best described as rootkits. If I was to chose between having a rootkit forcefully installed on my machine or having slimy lawyers fighting shady developers ... I think I know which option I would chose.
Let's be fair here. Blizzard are CONSTANTLY making their games more secure, but these tools require memory manipulation and aren't easy to catch unless you aggressively scan the client running them. If Blizzard did that to your PC you'd flip your shit as it's an invasion of privacy.
Honorbuddy users get caught in a banwave every 1-4 Months.
There was one in (I think) August last year, one in November and there was one today - and the last two were after Honorbuddy's supposedly improved bot detection detector.
It seems like if you're using Honorbuddy at any point you're basically risking getting caught in a banwave and it seems almost certain that getting caught is detection of the bot as opposed to being reported as lots of very careful botters get caught in these banwaves too.
