>u all forget to point out cheating is for people who otherwise suck.
or for people for whom playing normally has grown boring.
i played this game almost a year before i ever learned it was possible to cheat. i played for another couple years condemning cheaters for the reason you pointed out.
now im to the point where finding exploits in the game and killing people are just about the only things worth doing. and ive found so many in-game exploits that im ready to take it up to the next level: creating them.
i dont cheat to ruin the game for other people. usually i will find a bug, play with it, then never use it again. i get pleasure from finding the bugs, but not from using them. its similar to the excitement you get from solving a tough problem. its the thrill of the chase.
anyway, i thought it would be good programming experience...
