Recently in the community, there's been a massive debate over cheaters making the game virtually unplayable, due to them having the constant advantage. The reason this thread is being made is because no one has addressed this somewhere where someone with power can assess the situation and fix it for the rest of the community. I take this post a little seriously, because if the current cheater problem isn't fixed soon I predict this game is soon to die. At the beginning of 2017, only about 0.1% of the entire community were known to cheat (X-ray). At the beginning of 2018 that percentage became 5%, and as of right now, March 2019, the percentage is at 30% of the ENTIRE community using xrays to gain advantage over players. I think this needs to be stopped, as I've already seen a good chunk of the community leave Mineplex to go play factions servers, as Super Paintball was the only thing that kept them drawn to the server in general. Now to my point as to what I think should be done about this issue, and what causes it... So what the remaining 70% of the community thinks should be done (and I speak for a majority of the ACTUAL community) is Paintball should be brought back to the way it was in 2013-2015, where nametags were enabled, making everyone virtually an "xrayer." If this change were to be implemented, it would make everyone equal, and silencing that 30% that play all day in public lobbies, farming everyone for kills/XP. The fact that this was already a thing at one point in time shows how good of an idea this is. On top of all of this, I feel like this could gain some more traction to the game, introducing new players to the community to try it out for themselves. As for why people cheat so openly, it's because they know they cannot get banned, and because it makes the game so much easier for them to play. Mostly, people with skill don't necessarily "dominate" lobbies, but they do get most of the kills, and I feel like this change with nametags will result in nothing but positive changes for the community. For reference: Super Paintball With Nametags would look like this (2013-2015): Super Paintball Without Nametags looks like this (2016-present): Do you see how easily someone with an xray hack to see through walls could take advantage of someone who can't see through walls by default? As well with that, there's a utility built into the game known as "F5," where you can view your character from behind, but people are using this tool to see around walls, which is highly unfair to newer players who may not know that such utilities exist. Another reference: This was a 1 vs 1 between the TOP PLAYER in the game, and another player who people didn't really consider on his level. The top player is on an alt in this video, as Zexoiv, and the player who used xrays to win is Goodywon in the video. This was taken in 2018 and really does show how overpowered x-rays can make you compared to other players. (the long link is because there's 2 clips in particular I want you to see, so I just compiled them into a playlist). The difference between x-rays and F5 in this clip, how do we know he was using x-rays? Because when you F5, you have to look around a wall to see them, right? He isn't looking around the wall to see them, in this clip he is clearly keeping his eyes on Zexoiv at all times, even through the wall, without having to look around/over it. That's all I have to say, I wont list any names of the xrayers in the community in fear this thread will be silenced, but the community who is reading this knows who they are. Thank you, everyone.
