    Today, I've played 5 games of Eggwars... All 5 games had hackers. It needs to stop!

    My friend and I just finished 2nd in a game that took over an hour. We had full diamond and the best gear, and we still lost. How? They flew over to our base, mined our egg while hitting us, and once they broke the egg, they killed us WITH A PICKAXE. We couldn't hit them. We shot them off the islands like 10 times, but each time, they flew back up. My friend and I aren't millionaires. We can't afford to go out and buy a perfect computer we could use to record them. If we record with our current computers, we'll just lag and you won't be able to tell if its hacks or just us lagging. I used to love Cubecraft, but now, I don't think I want to come back unless something is changed.

    I think Cubecraft should make some BIG changes. To start, more staff. I've played for a total of 2 and a half days, and have probably spent just as much time in the lobby. Not once have I seen a staff member. The server is big! There's no point in having staff when none of the cheaters are banned! I'm not trying to offend anyone here. I understand how hard the staff works. Its not their fault, either. It's a very big server.

    Second, we need some sort of no-cheat system. Although it may be annoying every once in a while, I'd gladly be kicked out of a game if it means some hackers are kicked.

    Lastly, I think there should be a command that lets you report someone, after putting a reason. For example, I'd make a /report where they say the player's IGN and what hacks they're using. I believe it should be a perk for player's with high levels though, so there won't be as many trolls, and could only be used once every hour. Instead of sending the report to the staff, I think it should just save how many reports there have been on that person, the way it counts the time played and other things like that. After 10 reports on the same cheater, sent by different players, with the same reason(s), that player should be watched and/or banned.

    Although these ideas may not be the most efficient, they're just ideas. I'd take anything to get rid of so many hackers. I just want my Cubecraft experience, along with the rest of the world's, to be as great as it was when I first started. Thanks for taking the time to read my post, and I'm sorry if this in any way sounded hateful to anyone who didn't deserve hate. I'm just angry that a server so nice is, in my opinion, going downhill due to all the cheaters. Have a nice day, Cubecraft.

    If the /report only works with high leveled members then you can certainly bet that most hackers won't get reported enough times for a ban.People can abuse this too, a group of 10 friends(or a seperate instance of people) decide they don't like 1 person so they all decide to report them, now the person is banned/being monitored. Also I think that staff can't tp into a game.(other posts say this) Back a little time ago there was a glitch that made it when you jumped off something you could lag back and fall off, just saying if the anticheat causes something like that I don't want it.

    Also if you want the numbers of hacker to go down get some recording software and report them.

    While you make some good points, not everything can easily be achieved. First of all, I would say there are only about 30 players that even have a chance of staff. They can't recruit people that have little time online, low activity, and they have to be trusted. The anti-cheat is extremely difficult to program. They have to make sure it only affects hackers and not innocent players. Also, hacked clients are generally one step ahead of anti-cheats. About the /report command, it was removed because it was abused. There would be trolls who would report random players and then a mod wastes their time while they could be looking at forums reports. Also, mods can't go to players and spectate.

    If you want a good recording software, download OBS. In fact, when @HackersDontWin rush started his stream his fps went up by 100!

    ehhh...some of these are nice ideas, and I feel your pain about hackers but these ideas are all mad hard to achieve. You cant just add more staff because the current staff need to know that person and be able to trust them, and as builbuild said there are only about 30 people deserving of this spot. But the /report may be a good idea, I'm not the person to call "hacks you suck go kys" but when I see a hacker it would be nice to do this, alas there are people out there that would abuse the crap out of it and this simple command would become a burden for the staff. My laptop is barely enough to run minecraft a 40 fps, sometimes I'm lucky and get 60 but the fact is that its the bare minimum, and I can hardly play while using a screen recorder, I plan on getting a better PC/laptop in the future but this wont happen for a long while so I just deal with the hackers, it may be painful and really sucks sometimes but just stick it out and one day if you work hard enough you can be a helper ;)

    More staff won't help. Staff can't spectate people while they are ingame, only in assasinations.

    Being worked on I believe..

    Got removed due to it being abused, and overused, and simply not working. As I have stated before, staff can't spectate people while they are in a game. So it was useless and got removed.

    The only solution really is to, I know you can't, but still is recording them and reporting them. Sadly, not the most efficient way of doing things, but also the only one that really works.

    So you've played 5 EggWars games and a hacker every game. I was playing for about 2 hours last Thursday (several different games) and I caught 1 hacker. I think it's safe to assume that you might just've had bad luck.

    Anyways, I don't feel like more staff would work. Staff can by the way be in vanish mode, so no normal player can see them. And staff also have other things to do than just banning people, these are normally to help players too though.

    I think anticheat has been suggested several times before, but it is indeed everything but easy to programme. I feel like it's a better idea for devs to work on several new features which make playing more fun than to only focus on one thing.

    /Report was abused alot, I don't think it would work anymore anyways.

    I understand the feedback. For the people saying to just report the hackers, read what I said in my post. I can't... I've tried OBS, dxtory, Fraps, and Bandicam, plus others, and none of them recorded smoothly. I'm not saying these exact ideas, I'm just wanting SOMETHING.

    There is a program called screencast. Its not that great, it can only record up to 15 minutes, and can't record ingame audio.(obs is definitely better tho It's what I used before I managed to make obs mostly lag free)

    Well I feel like Cubecraft should accept more staff members.. Also I'm pretty sure you should just try to record anyways :p

    You can try to switch the settings a bit (in obs). It lagged for me as well but after changing a few things it works fine.
    Note: I absolutely don't have a good laptop or anything so I think it should work for you as well ^_^

    That's too bad. I don't think anyone can do anything about that and what you're proposing is a bad idea...

    Maybe staff could make a new undercover rank. They are just normal players but they can just message staff on the forums or in game about any hackers they see and they can go check it out. These would be players who have high ontime and make lots of report.

    Easier said than done, although I'm sure the staff appreciate you giving them ideas rather than the generic 500 threads telling the staff to do more when clearly it isn't as simple as tracking down hackers and banning them.

    this seems a bit biased, if I were a hacker and I saw a mod on I would turn my hacks off immediately...as an average stone rank I see hackers in about 1/3 of my games...gets quite annoying and makes it no fun, maybe it was partly bad luck but seeing 1 in 2 hrs is also unheard of for most people
