Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty Discussion
To make matters worse, if the shot fired by Activision doesn't shut the site down in of itself, then the subsequent lawsuits from other publishers (ubisoft and EA have also been sue-happy of late) will certainly finish the job.
Like I said before, the people being targeted (and being defeated) are using part of the game's code in creating a separate instance in order to spoof the multiplayer components of the game. Nothing could be further from what we are doing with our trainers. We violate no copyright whatsoever and there is no basis for filing anything against us. The majority of game publishers actually SUPPORT our site and have since inception. We have never and will never support multiplayer hacks and we increase the replay value and subsequent value of DLCs and sequels by creating the software that we host.
If Blizzard had a problem with our trainers, then all they would have to do is contact us. We're not some anonymous hacker group hiding in the shadows of the underground internet. We've received no communication from them at all and they have made no mention of our trainers in their public statements against hackers.

This site has been my old stand-by for many years across many games. One of the first things I do before purchasing a game is checking Cheathappens to see if it has a trainer.

Good to hear, PW. I saw the news on Slashdot this morning, flipping through the feed as I woke up, and thought, "God, I hope they're not going after cheat happens."
I still don't get why they'd go after single-player hackers. They're not the only ones that penalize it. Fallout: NV is disabling achievements when you use a console command.
What about the possibility of coding something into your trainer that BLOCKS whatever is in SC 2 detecting trainers? If anyone can do that, you guys can!
I'm sure blizzard will patch around that eventually, but you make new versions of your trainer for each patch anyways. It would be game of cat and mouse but again you already do that to make your trainers work for each patch. This would also verify for you 100% that Blizzard is specifically targeting Cheat Happens and not the whole range of MULTIPLAYER cheats/hacks. You would be able to tell that they are specifically targeting CH trainers.
Just a thought but would be AMAZING support for CH members to not get banned on Battle.net. I would throw another membership fee at you for above and beyond support like that.
While we have the capabilities to do that, CHU has chosen not to go down that path. The reasoning behind this is that we believe it is not illegal nor is it wrong to cheat in the single player campaign (which trainers are specifically designed for single player use only). It's our stance that two wrongs do not make a right.
