I've been developing cheats/private servers for AE games since 2006. And not once have I been caught... I developed some of the first private servers...
Did you like try and show off to AE? Or I'm guessing you used the same username here as your AQW one and they caught you.
As for the legal action. Can I see the document? I have several friends who have revived DMCA from
AE and just ignored them and nothing happened. I find it hard to believe your tools were that harmful for AE to take legal action against you meh
That was kind of what sparked it
I initially conversed with them in an attempt to shut down a player called 'MaxiJack' who used to post fake "AC/Membership Hacks" on his channel. Then, two years on, he posts as if he is innocent and makes a "Stop Botting" video. As a result of this, they looked into me quite a bit. I had to draw attention to myself in order for them to respond I suppose.
As for the legal action, of course they were unlikely to do anything to me. The point is that they COULD have though, and I was tiring of the whole thing anyway.
The reason they disliked me quite a bit:
I found a method to gain access to any account which had made a payment before, surprisingly very simple (they made a mistake), I'll show you over PM but they've patched it now. Considering I was in contact with a member of the SUPPORT team which dealt with account break-ins, they weren't going to be too happy. I also found another mistake which pissed them off quite a bit, but that has also been patched.
Edit - btw the MaxiJack take down was semi-successful. AE didn't do much, but they listened to what I had to say. Here's my publicity video:
And Maxijack hasn't posted a video in six months
