By: @Sven With the Generous Help of @AppleFTW Hello everyone. This guide is being made to assist players in distinguishing between the most commonly used hacks on the Mineplex server. Over the past several years, players have falsely hackusated against innocent players without even knowing what certain hacks look like and confuse skill/ping/lag with certain hacks. This guide will highlight commonly used hacks on Mineplex, describe them, and explain some tips and tricks in order to distinguish each hack from one another. With this guide, we hope to educate the Mineplex community and change the culture surrounding hacks and hackusating on the Mineplex server. A little bit of a note before we begin: the server featured to display the hacks is a custom server created by AppleFTW and I - it is not Mineplex affiliated. Additionally, the hacks associated with the featured account has since been deleted/removed from the account. Without further ado, here is the guide to distinguishing the most common hacks here on Mineplex!
