This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a Deagle. An elegant weapon... for a more civilized age.

That's a lol right there.

It garnered a hearty chuckle from me, I admit…

Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm anti-hacking defences may be a bit overzealous Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm anti-hacking defences may be a bit overzealous

I'm no expert on software design, nor am I a Blizz fan, but wouldn't hooking be detectable by checking processes running at the time? It wouldn't necessarily need to scan for installed software.

.

In fact wouldn't that be pretty ineffective anyway? If it was recorded in your registry then it would be a pretty poor hack, and if they scanned your entire hard drive it would take quite some time.

.

Privacy breach is a very black and white term too. Scanning your hard drive, holding the results, and using them to sell you a new graphics card would be privacy abuse. Scanning your current processes, sending them back to a server to check, then dumping them without recording would be a stretch to call a breach.

.

VAC scans your RAM and processes, compares them to a blacklist, and since it can be replicated manually by Valve's staff is presumably stored for an amount of time. I don't see this as being any different, unless there's something else to it not mentioned in this article.

.

As I say, I'm no fan of Blizzard particularly, but lets keep things in perspective.

Dog Pants is entirely correct.


Warden scans your running processes and RAM, same as VAC.


If you're worried about privacy breaches, then you should have read the EULA better, as it lays out exactly what Blizz can run on your system and collect from you.


And before you call me a fan boy, when it comes to EU privacy laws, Blizz treads very carefully on the side of extreme caution.

Don't write off Scan (scan.co.uk).

I've found they've competitive prices with OCUK and ship quite quick.

They also offer some build insurance, in case you cack it up somehow…


(OFC, that costs extra…)

My issues were with customer service rather than price, but I admit that was probably about 8 years ago.

What I can't understand is the whole "out of stock" bit.

They're digital games.

Maybe there's a set of redemption codes that are limited due to collision, but honestly?

Sites like GOG buy a limited supply of key codes for games, and once those sell out they have to acquire more from the publisher. It doesn't happen to Steam (at least, that I've ever seen), so either they buy so many they never run out, or they have a different kind of deal with publishers.

Still EA pretend that BF Vietnam never happened.

I really should shoot off an email to GameRanger to add that to their list.

It was too good. EA doesn't like good games.


Also I found it pretty funny how many words they had to use to say we don't have the servers to run BF4 how could we run all these older games too.
