As the achievements. Some of you may care not, but achievement system is a part of new gamer ecology system which enlarges the epeen of the gamers in this era. And they take it seriously. (Especially because this game have a portrait and decal rewards for each achievements you unlocked)
My standing point is now to wait for few daring souls to test it out in the fields first. If it's the banhammer, then I salute those souls. If it's not, well I'm going to use it... and then salute them.
yes it is.
the achievements do not give any advantage over other players that do not have them, which makes them pointless to get beyond the basic 'i just got this achievement' type of thing.
I have used the trainer to play the game for a little bit on single player, if blizzard bans me for that, then i will NOT be getting any more games from them and they would be losing out.
In the end, banning me for cheating in a game that only affects me and no one else is rather stupid and doesn't change anything.
I believe you should be freely able to cheat on the single player parts of games with no fear of punishment, unless the achievements (if any) you can get via completing the single player parts of the game that gives you ingame bonuses that take affect in multiplayer games.
Thats how i would do it, if i was blizzard, but i am not much of a RTS gamer, i am crap at it, infact, hence why i play on the easiest setting, it makes it playable and enjoyable, but there are missions that i just can't do, for example, the mission where you need to get 7 relics before the AI can seal 7 of them.
That i found to be impossible for me, so i had to cheat to get past it.
Well, i have used it for pretty much 25% of the game and i have not been banned, but i have only play it on Casual.
I tired the first 3 levels on Brutal, which kinda proves that the Brutal AI outright cheats, so i lowered it down to Casual and i honestly see no point (in my opinion) to play any higher.
I am in the process of playing without a trainer but i am dreading the levels that have a time constraints, cause i am a slow builder, i tend to make sure my base is relatively fortified to the point of being able to focus on building an attack force.
How other players rush like they do and STILL build a base at the same time baffles me.
I tried multiplayer once (obviously without cheating) and i got rushed in 5mins tops, if they did ban me for cheating, they should ban me from multiplayer activities, since i do NOT intend to play MP again, its just too much about winning the fastest.
You won't be banned right away, we probably have to wait for the first ban wave to hit, then we will be seeing casualties.
Never said the trainer was a hack. I said people using it in single player won't get banned, except the people who do use hacks in MP like lifting the fog off the map.
