Hello there, I've come today presenting tithings of great knoweldge, easy fixes, and outstanding suggestions!...ok I'm kidding but still, I would like to share a piece of mind for those who want to listen and might have the same experiences as I have.

Since early 2015, I've seen a constant flow and evidence of people that know exploits, tricks, glitches and things that can ruin a fun game of UU and since then it's gotten worse. The exploits back then weren't too harmful but now I hear things about people making scripts just to break the game in ways of either crashing the server(s), making themselves invulnerable, or just breaking the amount of money given on kill.

[You can skip this part if you don't want to hear me whine like a baby.]I could go on and on, but it just seems like the UU servers don't get any support on resolving or problem solving on what I find is of a sort of renegade exploiting going on within the serves(s). It's almost like a cult of their own little gimmicks and tricks to enforce their own will on the server they're on, giving them a false sense of empowerment and thinking they're top of the line shit. Yes it sounds like I'm a bit mad about this, but who wouldn't be if they saw a rag tag group of grimey little grease balls ruining one of the most fun and amazing game modes that they find exhilarating and awesome to have experienced.

Here's what I would like to be resolved or at least balanced out and I'm gonna be frank with any of the staff reading this: this might be a too big a task for such a small load of people to monitor with other things going on in life and other servers but I'm just wanting to give my piece of mind so maybe in the future this can be done. (I don't know how to do many of these, but I have heard of little tidbits of info on HOW to do parts of the proccess to commit these exploits). How you guys can find out how these exploits are done is possibly by looking at a server-side console and monitoring some of these various exploiters and play on the server yourself to find out. BUt then again, I don't know everything and this is just a mitigated suggestion.

- The Invulnerability Exploit: I've seen this done over a variety of classes and I find it to be the most annoying as there is NO way of stopping the person exploiting from capping. Not sure if it's an all class exploit but I think it may have something to do with an ability to stack resistances when swapping teams and finding a way to upgrade yourself in spectator more, but that's just my thinking. Not sure HOW, they would go around doing this but that's just my two cents.

- The Infinite Money Exploit: Had this happen many time in account, and even had someone explain how it they did it in the past with a different but possibly similar proccess, and that is finding a way to get stuck in the team choice menu and clicking/holding down the select button on the team you choose and if the server doesn't say you joined the team, then you did the exploit correctly. He(forgot his name) also mentioned that there was a COMMAND that you can used but was blocked soon after that activated this exploit. Even though this is an old and vague explanation of a exploit very similar to this one, I think the similarities have more to do than just having different processes.

- The Server-Crash Exploit: I hate this exploit. That's enough said on my opinion of the exploit, I don't know how exactly they're able to do this but one thing I'm for certain about is it doesn't crash people client-side but crashes the server entirely. This exploit is used for when one of the scumbags that happen to know the Infinite Money exploit want to have a fresh restart button on the server and reset the amount of money people have down to zero. I'm not sure how it's done and their might even be various ways and proccess to do this but I just want you guys to maybe play on the server with these people and find out for yourself if possible.

[I'll investigate this and make a list of people that have been under my suspicion; able to do any of these exploits so this can maybe help you guys out.]

In the end I only want things to be balanced out and make the UU servers a fun place to play on without someone having a hidden trump card of knowledge that ruins it for everyone. I hope you all have a great day, and here's a meme that I think you guys will hate me for posting:

Also I was kinda mixed up about witch sub-forum to post this on because feedback/suggestions just seems like the same things to me.

Never encountered this exploit myself, nor heard it. Are you sure that it's real? Could it just be possible that you were too weak to dmg them. Also, capping is allowed

We are already working on this, should be fixed in near future.

Never seen or heard about server crashing after cash-exploit. This might be done by spamming buttloads of projectiles, which obviously, kills the server.

Yes, It's real. I'm experienced in the ways of "dealing damage" and having loads of AP combined with a perfect combination of Damage boosts to kill a pretty good majority of people I encounter(unless they're exploiting ofc). I have a few screenshots and videos of people saying that it's some sort of "server override" with the use of console commands or even scripts.

The only reason I stated that capping was an annoyance was because the person exploiting can just purchase damage push force resistance and it becomes impossible to stop them from having their desires of EVIL INTENT to persist :eek:, I don't mind that normal people can cap as they can be stopped one way or another, that's not the issue.

(y)I'll pm you the proof in a conversation...

Warrak i have something to tell you. All the exploits existed all the time. People just werent Evil enough to find them. If you want for me to prove that to you. Add me on steam. Ill be happy to show. Not denying the possibility of conspiracies tho. :unsure:

what are you gonna prove to me? That people aren't evil? Not too sure what the context here is. I'll add you anyways.
