Thanks Matt for the update.
I have been playing this game since 2010, and i have always enjoyed it. It has been a rollercoaster ride, ups and downs, along the way, but i still love this game to this day. So when i see LO come in like this and keep trying to fix it, i am really glad. I realize that, considering the age of this game and therefore the age of the tools, assuming you got all the tools running, and the state of the server is not exactly helping either, that this will take a long time to fix, but i am really happy to finally see some light at the end of the tunnel, after a long time neglect sinde G1C got FE from Icarus.
There will always be cheaters around and there will always be those that want to cheat, anti-cheat or no, but i do appreciate that you are really looking into solutions to this. Honestly, when i go PvP, i do it because i need to DT, if i win or lose, it doesnt really matter, and intend to have fun doing it. I am probably the worst PvP'er in this game, so i can honestly say that whomever kills me, its because they are better at it than me
I think the biggest issue i experience is the occational lag spike. Sometimes i encounter invisible walls while travelling and NPC's suddently warp to another location when i start shooting them, but thats not a big issue for me.
Take your time, do what you have to do. I can wait, as long as i know there is light at the end of the tunnel. I will still play, craft and shoot stuff and have fun doing it.
Im just happy as long as i see the game getting some TLC from devs again
