    This is beyond stupid, especially when you consider that evidence has to be within 2 weeks for a ban to happen.

    I could bhop around, log off and never get caught since bans only happen based off doing it real time in game now, people who report me on the forums don't matter since I'm not physically online.

  2. It'S A DatABaSE!!!!111!1!. but yes. Classic Hypixel staff - they see a problem, look at it, think about it, then go in the wrong direction for a solution.

    It's astonishing how badly thought out this was.

    Especially since not everything can be reported through the in-game system, like team griefing, boosting, hacks that bypass Watchdog, etc. I asked Kessie about this in a thread she responded to about this topic but she just locked it with no answer.

    I feel like a lot of the hate towards staff isn’t fair.

    Helpers and mods are merely following directions. They don’t get to change policies or rules.

  8. Well yeah that is true but it’s more of the higher ups

    Edit - it’s not that it’s hate, it’s more the truth

  9. I'm not defending the staff as they have fallen short here but I can sort of understand why they prefer to do in-game reports. They have a system in place that automatically does a lot of the work for them, whereas on forum reports they have to manually enter the data, often watch a lot of unnecessary footage and check for any signs of forgery. Plus, if you're punishing users that are online, especially hackers, it's going to have a more notable impact.

    How is Watchdog supposed to watch a player that’s not online?

    It's their job to enforce the rules. They aren't following directions if they aren't enforcing rules.

    Yes, but they can not change things such as “evidence has to be within 2 weeks”

    If the in-game system was actually reliable and had all offenses that staff punish for then I would agree, but it doesn't. They should've sorted that out before deciding to rely entirely on a system that will allow a bunch of offenses to go unreported.

    OP is saying that staff aren't banning hackers from forum reports.

    The two-week rule, according to the OP, simply makes things more stupid. I see where he's coming from, but the two-week rule is not ultimately the point of the thread. He is saying that staff are simply refusing to ban from forum reports.

    Therefore, the staff aren't following their directions of banning hackers when there is evidence of hacking, even within the two-week rule.

  20. I completely agree, but I can see the logic in wanting to use the easier system.
