    CK = Custom Kick; hosts can throw out people who get annoying.
    MH = Maphack; reveals everything in the game.
    Statshack = Can view someone's income, wood, gold etc.
    Spoof = Name Spoofing; Doesn't work in chat but if you join a game you can have a different (coloured) name.

    Stathack = Sux
    Spoof = sux because you get banned

    CK is annoying because some host are little tyrant.Or can kick someone who is too good to win the game pretending he left by his own.
    MH & SH sux it's cheat
    Spoofing is not very annoying for me.

    Most of those interfere with the normal course of the game.

    I dont have much opinion against any of them really, normally in a game if someone sucks bad enough to need a maphack then its their option. besides its easy to implement anti mh protection into a map...
    I use a map hack fairly often, when im testing my map, along with the stathack so i can see how well an ai is useing their gold. without haveing to add triggers for all that. as for custom kick it can be used for kicking someone who is all powerfull... but that person knows when hees kicked that he won, and it makes the game more fun for all the other people in the game.
    Pluss then less games set up kick for red, which means anyone could kick you. (not just host, which is normally nicer than random bnet players)
    Besides instead of kicking you he could just leave the game ruining it for everyone, instead of just you (unless someone else in game can host)

    lol everyone takes that attitude, they think if a person 'has' a map hack that they are always useing it to cheat in games, this isnt the case, atleast with me.

    Nonesense unless when you see enemy army coming near your base you just act as if you didn't see it.Or unless you see he's making air units you act as if you didn't see it and still make melee...
    It's stupid, MH is cheat since you have an advantage to other player.

    You're a pathetic retard if you use these. Except possibly CK, but most people who use it do so because they are jerks.

    CK is neutral, it can be used for both good and bad, though usually it is used for bad, just like freaking banlist.

    MH and SH are total bullshit. If you need to use them to win a game, stop playing and put a gun in your mouth immediately.

    Spoofing is pretty harmless, and the chances of you getting banned are slim to none. You have the same chance of getting banned for spoofing as you do for using an auto refresher. They're both simplistic programs that interfere with the game.

    The hacks suck. Spoofing doesn't bother me at all, and custom kick can be really useful if it's not abused.

    I don't like hacks, I don't see why people can't just play the game as it is instead of using map hack to ruin it for others. As for statshack never heard of that one before, thought i'm sure people use it.

    I was actually replying to the thread, not you specifically.

    I really don't see why someone uses maphack instead if making a game and selecting "Always visible".

    About MH and Statshack:

    using this nearly always destroys the game, and ruins it for others.
    Such users should be banned from Bnet. I wouldnt even allow to use it
    for see how it is to play with it.

    MH and SH is the EVIL

    Spoofing:

    I dont have a real problem with this, but in most cases i kick them
    when i have the Banlist on. another name is not that annoying like MH.

    Costum Kick:

    Great tool, should be a standart option for every hoster in Bnet.
    U cant prevent that some one abuses it but it gives you vauleful Powers.
    IMO Joiners should always respect the Hoster.
    someone trys to ruin the game or begins Flame Party just Kick'n'Bann.
    there is also another useful thing but its not that good and i dont like
    it much. As u play a team game like 5n5 that turns into a 5n3 then i is like
    100% over. Here on demant of my team mates i change it to a 3n3, at cost
    of 2 players (they should not be Banned ofc.)

    there are some other usefully things you can use a map hack for, such as transfering gold in mass, seeing invisable units, view skills cd. If you want to talk about 'unfair' advantages their are many other tools, such as war3tool
    that display hp bars, or even customizeing your keys, takeing a class on typeing, lag factor, leaveing allys, game enhanceing staroids(ftw?).
    The point is many other factors affect the 'unfairness' of a game.
    Im not saying i aprove of mh (with other players), but you have to concider the game will be unfair no matter what, except maybe twins playing on lan.
    Its a tool that just dosnt need abused, just like a custom kick.

    I don't use maphack. I don't even have my custom kick (Vista fudges it up), but I use banlist. As long as the host isn't a weiner, custom kick is awesome. But map/stat-hacking is terrible. Just like sending a stealthbot after me... *cough* Anarki *cough*...

    MH and Statshacking should never be allowed for online-use.

    Custom kick is almost worse in my experience, sure most of you here say that its very useful and works great with respectable users. The problem with this is the majority of the time, that is not the case. See the link for more evidence.

    You give people power and they abuse it.

    Spoofing is relatively harmless in most cases, it's the only one I've ever done but I mostly use it when playing /private games to mess around with friends, its more of a show-off tool when used in public.

    They're all the same thing.

    3rd party programs that illegaly effect the gameplay of Warcraft III products.

    For those who justify custom kick by someone ruining the game...It's Warcraft III...Just kick their ass or something.

    Seriously, they're all illegal in the terms of hacking...

    I would consider hacking just as bad as Custom Kick...

    (...)and so should everyone else. So like, in my opinion (before you guys ask this question) I consider people who use custom kick as map hackers for hacking a WC3 system. So...I put them on my banlist pretty much (considering there's nothing wrong with banlist, it just tells me if someone's banned from my games) and if they join I kick them and they're like "wtfhostnubcakzgtfohorz"
