    So I Haven't played for a few years and just log in to check shop and deed payouts I own. I was an early adopter of moon deeds because I believed that Arkadia was a good and responsible world developer. I'm biased Arkadia is a planet I always came back to and camped because it was a nice place. Nice people.

    I have spent the last few days doing the moon dailey and payback mission. Payback mission I love it because I have a goal. Any ways I have been sitting at the moon watching a cheater group. Depending on when I get there I see the same exact players who log in share a slep do the 2 ped unlimited ammo mission everyday. Same passenger same driver. This happens for hours sometimes you'll get a couple people doing it at the same time. Edit - Someone has spent alot on sleps and they all/most have maze hammers so this isn't new to them.

    I have followed these folks around and blah blah. If I mention it to one they will take a break. But they start back up. Hang around 11pm -12pm central time you will see it.

    My background is comp sci and math. Its easy to see for me. I did alot of speeches and so on about the mac address (security) which can be changed now with ease. So the people up to shenanigans on the moon must have some sort of idea what they are doing. But if I have my vpn on the game knows it and wont let me in. Mindark is dropping the ball.

    There are many ways to detect the siphoning of ped that is taking away from people who have invested into the game but its not being looked into. Its easy to see if there are 2 accounts and its easy to see if someone has 500 running a 2 ped mission. You just need to look for it.

    I have more to say. I have receipts but I know posting pics and names is disallowed. I also want to express my disappointment in Arkadia's lack of reaching out to the community and leaving the development flat. If you hired just one person to talk and update the forums you would make alot more money.

    One more bitch I hate trying to loot a mob that falls under ground around a tree. I'm persistent and sometimes its impossible these days.

    I too think some more communication would be nice, last post was in June ?

    but I can not follow this part somehow:

    What does the MAC address have to do with security ? Or at least in the past 20 years? Even in Win98 it was just a registry key one could change.
    And how should MA know that you are using a VPN ?
    About 2-3 years ago I had it often on because I forgot to disconnect for another game (port blocked by ISP) and it was working fine.

    Check again I've been testing they are using Mac. Try again. The Mac address is a solid you can be traced. unless you know what your doing then.

    Proof of cheating isn't easy. Just because the do a daily run is no proof, especially if the stop when you pester or harass them.

    As for communication it looks like Toulan is Mindarks brown noser this year. Ark stopped communication when they started that game test altcoin thing and when gold event worked out badly.... May improve some decade?
