Vigilante justice rarely works out in the long run. Delivering pain to match pain just creates an unceasing, spiraling cycle. But with all of that philosophy said, it’s hard not to feel a certain satisfaction when it turns out that Black Desert‘s hackers are being hacked themselves. It turns out that the people unscrupulous enough to develop hacking tools are also unscrupulous enough to hack the people willing to use them. It’s a shocking revelation.
The reports are mostly based upon rumor and hearsay, of course, as very few forbidden hacking tools have customer service forums and the developers wouldn’t exactly be bragging about it. (In real life, taunting the cops is not considered an effective strategy to get away with things.) Still, it’s nice to think that someone who is in fact hacking will be hacked as a punishment. No word yet on whether or not the hackers hacking the hackers will themselves be hacked.
