  2. For fun, because their friends are doing it, because clicking hurts their hand, because they do not care about the game etc...

    There is an infinite number of reasons why players cheat, there is no one reason. The best thing for you to do is utilize /report and go on with your day. It is never worth your time dwelling on foul play.

  4. Well, there's no one definite answer or reason, and every cheater will think of it differently and say a different thing but don't get me wrong there are usually a few common reasons that I've heard. The first one is because they think everyone else is doing it, or because they think the other person is hacking. The problem with these hackers is that they're likely not to stop because they'll think everyone is lying that they're legit, which isn't really true but then again, you can't really change everyone's mind. Another reason is as you described, they think it's cool to hack, and they think that if they do it they'll appear amazing even though this usually isn't the case and everyone just gets pretty frustrated. After that, there are the people who get a rush from it and do it just because they find it fun that they're winning every single time. These people will eventually get bored of it but sometimes it takes a while.

    But that's what I usually think, of course, I can list more reasons but those are the few that came from the top of my head that I think may be why. They are in no shape or form what the hacker is probably actually thinking and I'm honestly a bit unsure myself.

    Also, if you believe someone is hacking, if you have evidence that is usable as per this guide, you can report them here. Otherwise, you can also report a hacker if you're on java by doing /report (user) (reason) and/or joining the StaffRequest community and doing /com chat staffrequest and then doing !(message). But that's not the only ways that you can report a hacker, you can also report them by joining the Mineplex Discord, heading over to the #report-players section and checking the pins for the reporting player format. Then you can either do that command on that same channel or DM the Mineplex bot in that format.

  5. The possibilities are infinite, but the most common reasons are to win or to upset other people.

  6. It can be for many reasons weather they’re doing it to level up faster or ruin the experience for others. It’s difficult to tell but there’s many reasons.

  7. Most do it because they want to be on the recording.

  14. I think end crystal pvp is used on that server so stuff like aimbot might not be very useful

  15. Idk, whenever I hack, I always get permission from Jacoby Brisket therefore I'm untouchable.

    Low-key hot take: hackers who don't ruin gameplay should be allowed to freely roam

  16. It's not a hot take, I completely agree - multiple times I've seen such players, lovingly referred to as "friendly hackers", who simply whiz around and spread positivity while not harming anyone or gaining any form of unfair gameplay advantage.

  17. Hacking is fun, lets be honest here. People wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t fun. If it wasn’t fun then clearly people wouldn’t bother to ruin other peoples experience. In the end, hackers are apart of the game and sometimes you have to deal with them.

  18. Except there hasn't been very many hackers lately because Gwen banned them all :(

  19. Hi

    I believe personally that people hack for a multitude of reasons. People might hack because...
    • They are bad and want the hacks to make it easy to win
    • Disregarding skill level they hack for fun.
    • They find enjoyment out of people raging / getting upset over them hacking.
    And trust me, a lot of other reasons that i cant think of at the moment. I feel as if people hack not because they are evil, as we might view them that way, I think they just hack because of reasons along the lines of the ones I listed

  20. The answer is 2 and 3.

    Some people hack because they can’t get better and others do it to piss them off

    …Unless they’re playing an anarchy server
