Life will always keep on throwing villains at us, but at least give us some new crap to hate on, eh, life? Luckily, we have gamers. Gamers like the following ones, who ditch the same tired-ass online toxic behavior—to instead go with more original but still ultra-high levels of evil.

生活經常會讓我們遇到一些壞人, 但至少會給我們一些新的玩意兒來恨,呃,生活?幸運的是我們有游戲玩家。像下面要講的這些,他們拋棄了低級在線有毒行為,轉而去采用了更原始但卻依然高水平的邪惡行為。

5 New World Players Take Every Chance To Steal Land

新世界玩家運用一切機會偷竊土地

New World is the huge multiplayer game from Amazon, with a sky-high player base and an even higher number of absurd game-breaking bugs. Like the title indicates, the game is all about ravaging and conquering the new world ... sorry, we mean "settling" the new world. And this opened the game to the most thematic of exploits.

新世界是一款來自亞馬遜的大型多角色游戲,有著龐大的玩家基數,還有比這數量還多的荒謬的游戲漏洞。就像標題中指出的,這款游戲就是一款關于侵略和征服新世界的游戲。,,抱歉,我們的意思是說“創建”新世界。而這將這款游戲開啟到了占領這一最重要的主題上。

Right before a turf war, players will file reports complaining about their opponents. Thanks to these reports, Amazon bans the opponents, preventing them for participating in the battle. The land they owned? It's now ripe for the taking.

就在一場地盤戰之前,玩家將舉報他們的敵手。多虧了這些舉報,亞馬遜封禁了他們的對手,禁止他們參與戰斗。他們所擁有的地盤?可以一波帶走了。

Many players have complained about inexplicable bans, to which the company replied that the victims were probably getting removed for a fair reason. Hey, Amazon, you know who else said that? Every colonizing power in history, you MONSTERS.

許多玩家都在抱怨莫名其妙的封禁,對此該公司回復說對受害者的封禁是出于公平游戲的原因。嘿,亞馬遜,你知道還有誰這么說嗎?歷史上的每一個殖民勢力,你這個禽獸。

Bans are actually a great tool for empowering cheaters. Here's another example of that:

封禁確實是一個賜予作弊狗的強力的道具,這里還有一個例子:

4 Players Use Bots To Ban Innocent CS:GO Players

玩家使用機器人來封禁無辜的CS:GO玩家

Remember when hackers just made use of evil programs to win games? There was a time when cheats allowed naughty players to never miss a headshot, see through walls, or simply have hilariously long-reaching arms. Nowadays, cheaters are not only bypassing anti-cheat systems, but straight-up turning them against 'roidless players.

還記得黑客利用外掛來贏游戲嗎?有一段時間,外掛可以讓淘氣的玩家槍槍爆頭,看穿墻,或者只是有一條可笑的長可及遠的手臂。現如今,作弊玩家不僅繞過了反作弊機制,而且直接將其矛頭指向了那些老實的玩家。

Valve came up a system for players to review matches, to retroactively catch cheaters and remove them from ranked play. This system is called Overwatch (not to be confused with the video game of the same name, the one that spawns all that porn). It worked pretty well with Valve's automated anti-cheating software, VAC. But it was still flawed, and skilled cheaters could bypass the system due to benefit-of-the-doubtitis.

Valve創造了一套可以讓玩家回顧游戲的機制,來回溯式地找到作弊玩家并把他們踢出房間。這套機制被稱為Overwatch(不要同同名游戲相混淆,這游戲生產了許多色情內容)。在Valve的自動反作弊軟件VAC的幫助下運行得非常好。但是還是有漏洞,多虧了多疑的好處,熟練的作弊玩家可以繞過該系統,

Sometimes, though, Valve receives a whole lot of reports about a player, too many to ignore, and so they ban them. Problem is, maybe those reports are coming from cheaters themselves, who've unleashed an army of robots to mass-report the innocent player. They wait till their opponent does something perfectly innocent that might be misinterpreted as questionable (like stepping away from the keyboard for a minute), then send a massive number of complaints against them.

一些時候,雖然Valve收到了大量的對于一個玩家的舉報,但太多了而無法忽略,就直接封禁。問題在于,也許這些舉報來自于作弊玩家自己呢,他們釋放出機器人大軍來大規模舉報無辜玩家。他們等待到他們的對手做出的無辜舉動看起來像是可疑舉動的時候(就像離開電腦前一分鐘),就發送大量舉報來坑他們。

For a while there, no one was safe, from random players to prolific ones. Luckily, Valve states those days are over. Well, that's relief. Now we just have to wait for the next massive security flaw to screw things up for everyone.

有那么一段時間,從輕度玩家到重度玩家全都人人自危。幸運的是,valve稱這樣的日子已經過去了。真是讓人松了一口氣,現在我們只需要等待下一下大型安全漏洞的出現來折磨玩家了。

3 Making Up A Disability Ban In Path Of Exile

在流放之路中創造了一個殘障封禁

Even when not getting exploited by vile players, automated bans can fail catastrophically and hit the wrong people. There may be perfectly reasonable explanations behind those unusual playstyles that an algorithm flags as problematic. For example, maybe the player's not cheating—maybe they're disabled.

即使有時沒有作弊狗搞破壞,自動的封號機制同樣同災難性地失敗并且打擊錯人。有著算法標識程序出錯這一完美借口來解釋這些不正常的玩家事件。舉例來說,也許玩家沒有作弊,而是殘障人士。

This past April, a user calling himself "Poe Legal" told the world he'd got banned from Path Of Exile. His offense? He'd been using macros to simulate keystrokes. But he wasn't doing that so he could hit keys faster than the game normally allows. He did it because he was physically unable to hit keys the regular way. Thanks to a workplace accident, he'd lost all the fingers on one hand, and a few other fingers on the other.

今年四月,一位自稱是Poe Legal的玩家告訴全世界他被流放之路封禁了。他的控訴?他使用宏來模擬擊鍵。但他沒有這樣做來讓自己擊鍵更快。他能做到是因為他生理上的殘障使他無法以常規方式擊鍵。這是因為一場工作事故,他失去了他的一只手上的所有手指,和另一只手上的幾根手指。

Wow, that's a really sad story. It's also not true. Turned out the forum user in question was neither disabled nor banned.

哇,真是一個悲傷的故事。但同樣并不真實,原來這位發帖的玩家并沒有殘障或者被封禁。

What a dick. Probably, he wanted to stir up extra anger toward the Path of Exile crew for unknown reasons, but the video game company isn't the one who'll take the biggest hit from this. It'll be the next person who complains about getting wrongly banned, only to have everyone say, "Haha, likely story. You're probably not really disabled at all!"

真是個混蛋。大概,他是出于一些未知原因想要煽動起玩家對于流放之路的怒火,但是這家游戲公司并不是受到最大損害的那個。最大的是接下來要講的一位玩家, 他抱怨自己受到了錯誤的封禁卻只換來了人們的“哈哈,相同的故事,你根本沒有殘疾。”

2 A Hacker Ruins A Glorious Pokémon Record

一位黑客毀了光榮的寶可夢的記錄

Remember 2016? It's the year we used to call “the crazy one” before all the consecutively worse ones we've had since? That distant year blessed us with a short period that might very well have been the last breath of happiness in the history of Western civilization. We call it the time of Pokémon Go. A dumb and fun little app got many people out of their homes so they could catch Pokémon and have fun. Yes, we'd really like to believe people used to do this and that these aren't just memory implants.

還記得2016年嗎?在我們后經歷的一系列更糟糕的年份之前我們稱之為最糟糕的一年?這遙遠的一年帶給了我們可能是西方文明歷史中最后的快樂了。史稱這一年為去吧寶可夢。一個傻樂傻樂的小型app使得許多人離開屋子到外成來捕獲寶可夢從中獲得快樂。是的,我們愿意相信人們曾經這么做,而且不是記憶植入。

Since not long after the release of Pokémon Go, and up until recently, a player named BootsMade4Walking had held a Pokémon gym for the absolute record time of 1,331 days. Such a totally arbitrary number of days naturally called for a celebration, which got Mr. Boots to announce it online. That was a mistake—his last one as a gym leader—because as soon as he got to start the celebration, his gym's location became known to the internet, and it took no longer than a few minutes for a cheater to pull the rug from underneath his feet and steal the gym for himself.

自從去吧寶可夢發行以來,直到如今,一名叫作BootsMade4Walking 的玩家舉開了一個寶可夢的房間沖擊到了1331天的絕對記錄。如此霸道的天數自然需要慶祝,于是Boots先生在網上宣布了。這犯一個錯誤——他最后作為房間的房主——因為他一旦開始慶祝那么他房間的位置就將全網公布,用不了多久作弊玩家就從他手中偷走了他的房間。

What makes it even sadder is that Boots deliberately chose a gym in an impressively remote location, but that didn't matter. Cheaters are literally omnipresent, meaning that they can gain access to any gym from the comfort of their Dorito-stained couch.

這事情中更令人傷心的是,Boots特意選了一個偏遠無人知的位置的房間,但毫無作用。作弊者無處不在,這意味著他們可以從他們舒適的沙發上獲得任何活動的權限。

1 A Glitch Made The Rainbow 6 Siege Community Drop Their Collective Mask

一個小錯誤使得彩虹6圍城的玩家群體放下了他們的假面具

Rainbow 6 Siege has various different characters, One of the best-designed is “Doc," who plays the traditional role of a healer in the made-for-the-game profession of “medical doctor." Doc's abilities include shooting bullets at teammates that cure them from other bullets. This powerful healer was even more powerful at some point when he featured such a powerhouse of a glitch that nearly broke the game.

彩虹6圍城有著許多角色,其中設計最好的是Doc,是一個扮演了專為游戲設計的藥劑師的傳統治療角色。Doc的能力包括朝著隊友射出子彈來治愈其它子彈造成的傷害。這個強力的治療角色在有的情況下甚至更強大,他有一個能打破游戲平衡的強力bug。

This glitch let medics constantly churn out medic juice, which let teams constantly regenerate their health. The sweet sweet doc juice was so game-changing that it had entire teams pressuring players to pick the Doc, then bullying their Docs to abuse the glitch. Docs who didn't abandon their Hippocratic oath would get euthanized by their own teammates.

這個bug使得醫生角色不斷生產出回復果汁,使得整個隊伍不停地獲得回復效果。甜蜜的Doc果汁如要甜蜜以致于整個隊伍都得選擇Doc角色,然后逼他們的Doc角色不斷使用這個效果,不放棄希波克拉底誓言的Doc就這樣被壓榨致死。

This glitch created an unintentionally great social experiment, one that revealed an ugly truth about the game's community. Usually, most players hate cheaters—even those who are on their teams. But this was different. Whether it was because the ones bullying the Docs didn't see it as “breaking the game," or because real-life doctors are pretty overpowered as well, this glitch was enough to reveal that most players care more about easily achieving a higher rank than they care about playing better. Team spirit is a suit sewn using very cheap fabric. Or something to that effect.

這個bug創造了一個無意中的偉大社會實驗,揭露了丑陋的游戲社會中的真相。通常大多數玩家討厭作弊玩家,即使這些作弊玩家身處于他們一方的隊伍,。但這不同,要么是這些壓榨Doc的人不覺得破壞了游戲平衡,要么是因為現實中的醫生也同樣很強大,這個bug足夠揭示出大多數無家關心升級多過關心游戲體現。團隊精神不過是一套便宜面料縫合的西裝,或者是差不多類似的東西。
