[Skills] Obvious modders on TM
« on: January 17, 2015, 12:12:47 PM »
Am i the only person to notice that there is modders on TM.  Correct me if im wrong but there has been tons of people lately that have all 99 skills with basically the same xp for each skill.

On my leaderboards it says there are 5-6 people with all 99s, and each skill has the same amount of XP. I don't recall ever seeing their name on the leaderboards before, and I refresh often. But one day I refreshed and more names just appeared, out of nowhere, will all 99s...looks very suspicious.

Bound to happen on any game with leaderboards sooner or later.

I wouldn't get too excited about it.

Who knows? Maybe they leveled up everything offline.. ::)

They have found  exploits in the game and gone nuts with them. On my leader boards some players have over 37 million xp points on attack, ranged, and defence. Some have  over 2 billion points on looting. Most of the other skills are in the 10s of millions. So I'm pretty sure they are not legit.

Iv been playin TM for years and have been grinding since the skill update came out so it just seems a little unfair that newbs to the game can just come in and take credit for hours of grinding and become max rank in minutes.

There was a program released recently that allows you to modify unlockables, skill levels, and in-game inventory.
You want me to give a timeframe? haha I'd have more luck predicting the end of the world.

Found everything, Should be fixed by the time 2.12 is released, mods usualy very easy to patch.

I just joined a game where there were two level 99s, and they both had the DemiGods, so it seems they too are able to be unlocked that way. I spoke to one of them and he admitted to just editing the Save data to achieve these. I've been seeing more and more 99s recently, it seems this is going to become more popular as time goes on until it is made impossible...

Its going to get more popular each update untill a patch happens that ruin the method they are using, And if you think the odd few people doing it is bad, imagine if they there was a 3-4month time between major upadtes where players could do this.

Why worry about it?

If they are disrupting your game, you just put them on your "avoid player" list and forget them.

If your just worried about your spot on a leaderboard, then I don't know how to help you.

He is worried that All his countless hours grinding are now considered wasted. Its just not very fair.

I would suspect the obvious ones will be removed from the board.
