More crap from Ntreev.

A word on hack protection:

Like crime, cheating can be simplified as opportunity plus desire. Opportunity is provided by GameGuard's vulnerabilities, which they have to work to correct. Cheating is easy, and although it is a crime in most jurisdictions, enforcement can be lax. It's similar to downloading protected music content online: the penalties are severe, but many justify their crime by considering how few are ever caught. I'm sure that makes those who are indebted for life or imprisoned feel much better... Since the Korean version requires a national ID to register an account, players who are able to register for that version are less likely to cheat since it is more difficult to get a new account.

Although we do update our version of GameGuard as often as our development team provides it, it may at a given point in time be an older version than one on another Pangya release. That being said, all versions of Pangya do consistently update GameGuard, so the version should always be at least similar. So the issue we have isn't necessarily that we're using a weaker form of hack protection than the other versions, but rather that there is greater desire to cheat in our version. The very same programs used to cheat in our version do work on other versions as well.
Wat? No. Every GG except ours has updated recently. Our last update was in July. And is still several years old.
