We have some extraordinary good news for Legacy of the Void fans. Have you ever been a hack victim? Felt that you lost a match that you were not supposed to? The enemy zerg army was OP from the first 3 minutes? Fear not! Starting with patch 3.0, hack in Starcraft II are officially removed. No more pesky programs that will make your enemies OP and give you a hard time. The era of fairness has finally come.
Hacks have always been an issue in Starcraft II, that is why this is extraordinary good news for Legacy of the Void fans. With Starcraft gaining huge popularity in eSports over the years, it seems quite normal that some players, who really have no life, attempt to cheat their way up and try to become the best of the best. But there is a moment when this sort of behavior needs to be prohibited, and not just by asking nicely.
Blizzard have taken the liberty to eliminate all the hacks from their game so that the experience remains a pleasant and normal one. If you want to become one of the best players on the ladder, you just have to fight fair, like everybody else does. If you are not planning on doing so, then you are free to leave and attend some other game that allows you to do so, until that game gets enough funds and attention to ban you too.
So how did Blizz do it? Very simple. According to a debate on the Starcraft subreddit, the developers at Blizzard actually made it one of their priorities to tackle any outside program that could be interfering with their game. Thus, they changed a lot of code that, ideally, will allow no hacks to be implemented ever again. You can breathe easily now: you might just get out of elohell in patch 3.0.
Still, even if Blizzard went to such extent as to make these great changes, we have to admit that we live in a world in which technology evolves with the speed of sound. Even if Starcraft II is hackproof now, it doesn’t mean that tryhards are not going to attempt to re-hack it again. Anything is possible, but we really do hope that with these changes we will never have to deal with this subject ever again.
Legacy of the Void will launch on the 10th of November, so make sure that your wallet is equipped with the money required to buy this hackproof Starcraft II addition, which is believed to be a total blast.
