I know I haven't really been fighting in the Arena all that long, but I have noticed that I fight either 1v1 or 2v2 vs. other players. I haven't fought against any guilds or any other groups. as a matter of fact, I don't think DQ has any kind of guild support system of any kind. I have read posts about players forming informal DQ guilds, but they aren't a part of the official DQ game system. when it comes to the Arena, if a player has a Cheat Modified Eternal Item, it doesn't matter if they are in a Guild or not. they get reported either way, and a Mod will check it out and deal with them. I don't have a problem with people forming an informal guild or talking about them, but when the smack talk starts, that is not what the DQ Forums are about. the DQ Forums are a Community of Support and Sharing Ideas, and we have a Cheat/Hack Thread to either report these players in or talk about them.
@ZOMBOY shared a truth with us, that when in the Arena, it doesn't really matter if someone is cheating, they can be beat.
I don't know if anyone has thought of this, but a Cheat Build has the same weakness as a Legit Build, they all only have space for 36 affixes, 42 with a pet. and a Trinket if you find one. my 1v1 PVP Toon has gotten to Division 5 in Eternal, and it is only a PVE/PVP Hybrid. and at the moment, I am working on getting another Toon leveled up to be only PVP, so hopefully I can do a better version of Get Gud!
I know I am ranting, and have ruffled some feathers out there, but I really like DQ, and have fun playing it, even the few times losing, ok, the many times I have lost in PVP. and like all of you out there in DQ Land, I don't like the idea of Cheaters either. they take the fun out of the game. but the only place I can meet them is in the Battle Arena, and I am sure I have smashed a few of them on my way up to Eternal Division. and that only tells me, that as weak as my PVP build is, a build made by cheating is weaker, and I am still improving my gaming skills, both in PVE and PVP.
lets Get Gud together and let the cheating builds wither and die in the Normal League.
