    Re: The Mysterious M

    From what I've read the game is server based so hacking is pretty much impossible. Really glad too, if one or more hackers were to get into this game the entire experience would be shot. All that time and money down the drain, especially for the big spenders out there.

    I don't know why everyone gets their panties in a bunch when a thread like this pops up. This is UE forum are we not allowed to discuss w/e we want? Seeing a guy with x3 the amount of Boss Points as the guy below him/her is an intriguing observation, one can't help but wonder how much he spent or whether or not its legit.

      So, I just did a back of the envelope calculation, as you were requesting above.

      * He currently has around around 640 million points.
      * I have about 4.5 million points and I spent roughly an hour (maybe an 1:15 yesterday working on boss).
      * Let's assume between his higher atk, better Lts, high crit rate, he does, on average, 2x more damage than I do. (No idea if this is the case, but let's assume this for a moment - I'm lvl 930-something by the way.)
      * He has a 5* Duke, which could give him 5x stam. I didn't use Duke or Red Countess
      * Let's also assume that he doesn't care if he doesn't even take the time to use his energy from leveling. I'm cheap so I spent the time switching in Baron and doing jobs to minimize the energy lost when leveling. If so, let's assume that he is attacking 2x more frequently than I was attacking.

      Given this, he should be able to earn boss points 2*5*2 = 20x faster than I could. In other words, assuming that it took me 1.25 hours to accumulate 4.5m points, it would be reasonable that he could accumulate points at 72 million points an hour. So, to get to 640 million points at this rate, it would have taken him about 8.9 hours. Not completely unreasonable, right?

      (One note, I fought the boss over the course of the afternoon, so I could be underestimating the time that I spent on the fight, but even if I spent 2 hours, which I'm pretty sure I didn't, it would still only take him 14.2 hours to do this, which is still very plausible.)
      Thanks for this Mdwstrnkid. This is all I was asking for. Sounds legit to me. DVeight, your input on his LTs that he might choose to use also makes sense.

      I had another player explain to me what scripting is. It doesn't sound like cheating, just smart. Assuming it is allowed. I used the word "concerned" because after the original cheating scandal, things that look out of place concern me. Doesn't mean there isn't a reasonable explanation, like was explained above. Yes, I would hope that if it wasn't allowed and it was being done it would be stopped or prevented. I don't have a problem with money being a way to distinguish yourself in this game - as I and many others have said in countless other posts and in-game conversations, those who spend the big $$$ help make the game better for those who don't spend or spend a fraction of that.

      I will freely admit I do not understand all of the mechanics of the game. I remember seeing Anson in the store once. I didn't buy him.

      "I have heard many people say he/she uses a bot or a scripter to run/play their account. I don't know what that means and am way to lazy to Google it. But if they have found someway to automate their account, is that legal?"
      - this was my question. It was explained to me what this means. I did not accuse them of using one - I did not post "M IS USING A BOT THATS NOT FAIR BOO HOO" - I brought some rumors to the forums looking for validity or nullification and an explanation to what people meant when they said "bot" and "scripter". Not hostility from another player. I am pretty sure the idea behind a forum is to have questions answered. I understand you have the ability/right to answer me in the way you have, DVeight, but don't see why that's the path you would choose. I know you aren't in his empire. What's your desired outcome in answering from a pedestal? Sharing knowledge is cool, berating others because they don't know as much isn't.

      Several people have pointed out that there are multiple threads already addressing this player and his account and possible issues with it. I don't troll the forums daily or weekly. I have seen one previous post on this character that I commented on that basically said "yeah, his account looks crazy and I can see why people would think it looks suspect. But if he has the money and time, then good for him."

      Thanks again to those who took the time to answer my questions. Hope everyone does well in the event.

        Re: The Mysterious M

        This thread is a perfect example of "guilty until proven innocent," or a witch trial. Someone says, "hey everyone, I heard XYZ about this guy, can someone prove me wrong?"

        While that it is not as bad as blatantly accusing the suspect of XYZ, it assumes the suspect's guilt and shifts the burden upon someone else to prove the suspect's innocence. If no one steps forward, a casual reader of the thread might very well assume that the original allegation (of scripting) was true.

          Re: The Mysterious M

          L: Change the WorLd, is a novel adaptation of the live action film, L: Change the WorLd. The novel is notably similar to the film. However, there are a number of major plot changes in the novel that were made to keep the novel faithful to Death Note's canon. One of the changes to the plot being that, Near is no longer a Thai boy, but the same Near that appears in the manga. It also reveals more information about L and his past.


          M is the pen name used by the author of the novel. The style of the letter "M" the author uses to represent themselves is written in Cloister Black font, which is the same font used for Death Note characters that use a letter to represent themselves, such as the "L" for L and the "W" used for Watari.

          This was taken directly from the Death Note Wiki, regarding the book written by an Author by the name of "M." He's written several other books, and is considered to be a multi-millionaire. I think he may have a hobby other than writing books.

          Detective Joker strikes again.

          My Regards,
          Joker,
          Manager of Dark London.

            Re: The Mysterious M

            I apologize for comin at you so harsh. There have been a number of threads started about this guy and it's getting old. Scripting is cheating, nothing else, you are finding a way for your game to play without you. If you just look through his account for 15-20 minutes you will realize he doesn't need to spend a ridiculous amount of money to do well in this event. Especially since presets have now been released, I bet he has all three specifically for this boss event. It's not fair to come to a public forum where that person might not be a member of and throw these wild accusations.

              Re: The Mysterious M

              What's with all the Fuss? we should all be thanking the guy...

              Thanks to him and his money (or tactics, whatever) we are today fighting Event Boss level 54 (soon 55). what does that mean?
              well to all of the people who participate in the event (regardless of points or Eagles), it means that so far, you will receive the following rewards:

              6 scratchers, 3 Energy drinks, 3 stamina drinks, 300 Class coins

              so, I urge Mr M to hit some more... and then others his size (no pun intended) to join in and get that Boss to LvL 100. We'll all be richer for it, no?

                Re: The Mysterious M

                The account is legit, just so far past what we can even conceive as regular players. I hit crits at about 10K points...hes hitting crits at 200K+ and getting almost every X. I can see the points.

                IMO the only thing you could call him out for, and I don't even know if its technically "cheating", is that because of the speed at which he was getting points almost certainly means that more then one person is playing the toon at the same time. I'd say at least 2 but maybe more. Lots of people PvP with two devices, I never considered it cheating. But IDK the Devs stance on that....
