Twitch star NICKMERCS believes hackers in competitive games should go to jail.
Star of Twitch NICKMERCS has declared that hackers in competitive games should go to prison.
No doubt, with the rise of competitive online gaming, cheaters and hackers will emerge from beneath the woodwork – especially in shooters like CS:GO, Call of Duty: Warzone, Apex Legends and Fortnite.
It’s fair to say genuine gamers are becoming increasingly frustrated with the increasing number of cheaters in their favorite multiplayer games. In fact, some may even feel this has completely turned them off from playing multiplayer games altogether.
Cheating can take many forms, from aimbots and wall hacking to invisibility and DDoS attacks. NICKMERCS, one of the many frustrated gamer who is fed up with online cheaters, has called for drastic measures to tackle their rise; NPR reports NICKMERCS demanding those responsible should serve hard time. While I agree that hard time would be beneficial in curbing cheaters’ activities, it won’t solve everything; other solutions might work just as well.
“If you cheat and hack in video games, I believe it should be sent to jail,” tweeted the outraged streamer. “I understand most of you are busy touching grass and doing other silly stuff – that’s awesome – but your boy just spent 20 hours getting hacked online in video games & I’ve had enough.”
Twitch streamer iiTzTimmy recently suggested an interesting idea that has been mentioned previously: creating a gaming profile linked to each game. He went on: “One per user and you cannot make another. If you cheat, then it goes on your record and gg.”
Unfortunately, combatting online cheaters could be a long-term battle that continues to evolve. Unfortunately, the software that allows ‘gamers’ to exploit competitive multiplayer environments is becoming more and more sophisticated every day.
