    Dear Fellow Cubcraftians,

    I had a much better idea for dealing with hackers than banning them. Now I'm guessing your thinking I'm a little crazy now but it'll make more sense after I've explained it (hopefully).

    So I think that for each mini-game (or not so 'mini-game' like eggwars or skywars) they should add a new lobby that shows up in the far left corner of the lobby selector GUI. This lobby would be called 'The Black Lobby'. Now the the black lobby is so if a player is banned they can still use this 1 lobby (the black lobby) the only difference between this lobby and the regular lobby's is that hacking 100% is allowed. Now I'm guessing your thinking I've gone absolutely mental at this point but I'll go on anyway because I know some of you will still be reading <3. The black lobby would benefit Cubecraft because it will get more players because banned players will still be able to play and also it means any hackers can just play on the hacked server instead of playing with people with no clients.

    I hope you enjoyed my short post ;)
    Now I'm off to play eggwars, cya all later <3

    Interesting idea. We will still ban them if they play regular eggwars. also, I don't understand why they would want to play that because they will just fly to each others islands. I don't know if this will work, but we'll see.

    No, no no..
    If CubeCraft bans a player he is not allowed to play on the server anymore.
    And if they should add a Black Lobby then they are still able to play on CubeCraft so what is the point of banning then?

    Please...

    I'm divided on this.

    It sounds good, and it could also be used to catch hackers more easily. For instance if someone played on "the black lobby" and is then seen hacking on a game where it isn't allowed, you're sure they are hacking.

    The problem is, once you allow it in some way, people are more likely to use it even if it's not allowed. Also, people who are banned/not yet banned could discuss things on that "black lobby", for instance what's the best client, or if they are not yet banned team up and before you know it BOOM: Eggwars: 3 teams of hackers.

    Here's my go on it: "the black lobby" will be a standard superflat world where hackers can do whatever the fudge they want to do. :)

    No. More hackers will go to regular lobbies once they are unbanned or if they're not.

    The black lobby is a place where all the hackers are sent so they cant join the normal lobbys

    I actually did read it. If they're going to have hackers play on it, banned or not, then what if they decide to go to regular lobbies if they're unbanned or not caught yet?

    But they are still able to play if they are banned.

    1. Banned players are not able to join normal lobbies.
    2. Unbanned players/uncaught players already can go to normal lobbies

    What I mean is unbanned players or unknown hackers will hack on regular lobbies after hacking on the black lobby.

    It just doesn't make any logical sense.

    "Yes, you're banned, but you can still play on our network!"

    No, it doesn't work like that. The people who hack doesn't do it because they want to cheat the game, its because they enjoy the satisfaction of trolling other players. Even if this were to be implemented, it won't cut down on the hackers that will be playing against legitimate players.

    Hmm on one and this would make hacking have a less serious punishment but this black lobby could provide a ton of useful information on how to improve the anti cheat :D
