This topic is made for [RR] Ryyst
Since it was just announced that RR would be closing on Facebook.
The reason given was it was "TOO EASY" to cheat using a PC and not as easy with a mobile device.
That reason is total crap. Here I will list the current "cheats" and how they work and are used.
Tie Glitch - works on all mobile devices and PC by either closing RR before a race is over or swapping tabs.
Tie Glitch Fix - DQ any user that exits RR before a race is over. That is how it was before being changed and how it is suppose to be.
Racebot - Currently it is only a PC thing that only MAYBE 10-100 people have.
Racebot works by selecting your car from a drop down box, then accepting a race, then adding in the launch key.
Racebot Fix - Since when you accept a race AND THEN have to enter the launch key, that is going to force a DQ if the TIE Glitch is fixed by doing the above suggestion.
Those are the 2 major cheats/glitches that the RR team are currently allowing because of letting people go outside of RR AFTER a race is accepted.
Fix that and that would pretty much kill off any other program too because both mobile and pc has programs like cheat engine that tries to alter what is being used in your devices memory.
IF you wanted to take it one steps further, then FORCE Racing Rivals to close if you go outside of the app. Since you have to load the app and then connect it to the cheating app/program. That would stop it all together since they wouldn't be able to accept a race or nothing and IF they wait until after the race is accepted, just simply make it a AUTO FOUL and let the legit users have a free win.
I know that it was changed since people would cry that their device lost connection, but honestly 75% of those people lied to try and get their car replaced because they lost. Same thing as those people who use the tie glitch now.
Closing a platform that is currently THE BEST option to use is crazy/stupid honestly, and using the excuses not to fix the issues isn't helping the game at all and at the same time losing tons of legit players that also pay a good amount of the income that keeps this game running.
If people want to complain that PC users have an advantage and they don't want to or can't use a pc themselves for what ever reason, then the simple fix to that would be to add a glowing box around the users avatar for what ever device their using. Facebook can have a Blue Glowing box, Android can have a Green Glow, and Apple can either have the default white that is already there or any other color so that people can tell the difference between who their racing and what device their using. That also lets the people that think all PC users are either cheating or have a advantage just avoid racing PC users and I know I would be just fine with racing other PC users if that is all that sent me a race, and I would be fine with it.
Just don't take the only way most of the legit PC users have to play this game when the fixes are sooooo simple.
Everyone is welcome to comment their own opinions on this, but lets try to keep this clean and maybe have the admins input on this too.
I'm also going to add that I am one of the ones that can, but WONT play Racing Rivals on my Android.
My reasons are simple... I'm not going from a perfect racing platform to one that lags my reaction time.
Yes I could go and buy a $1,000 phone/tablet, but I'm not. I will just not use RR at all until FB is brought back.
