    HELLO PIRATE PEOPLE! Has anyone seen the people leveling using macros? Its a program you can install to say, for example, lob grenades indefinately. I saw a guy in Rats Nest today who was not there but he was tossing grenades at the boss for hours. He programed his mouse to just infinite clicks and low and behold he has mastered grenades.. The guys name was Despair.

    Is this legit? Does POTC have an opinion about cheating?

    Other games consider it cheating and I think so too. Others work hard for leveling while macros users just sit around and wait

    wow i never heard or seen that before, you wonder what enjoyment they get out of cheating like that. I really dont understand the point of even playing potco if u do that.

    I remember, in tormenta, a guy was using a speed glitch to fire a gun. And right before my eyes he disappered. I think the server sent out a alert and he was gone.

    Basil, that glitch was fixed, but it was awesome! It was a glitch with the bayonet, which let you fire any gun without reloading. I took my blunder, went to Dark, click 2 times. Was great for looting!
    I mastered every single of my weapons working on them, even tho some were boring, like the grenades, in the end, you'd always say 'That was fun!'

    Yeah, everyone seems rushing to get to level 50. I don't think the coolness of level 50 comes in until you master all your weapons/sailing/cannon first. o.o

    Sorry for bring up an old post it seems, but to the OP, your point is valid. Doing that is crappy, and that guy is losing the spirit of the game, but I don't think your using the right word. The word, and what you are referring to, is a "bot"(robot). A macro is a short series of commands mapped to a keyboard key or mouse button...and in gaming isn't cheating or wrong. In fact some games have special slots just for macros. I have an advanced gaming mouse (it has two extra buttons on the thumb side). When I am sailing, I have these two buttons set with a macro to fire broadsides, port one and starboard the other. So when I'm sailing and going after a ship I can focus on steering the ship and the camera angle and not have to reach and press "1" or "2" as well, I have that button press mapped to the button. It's not automatic. When I'm on land, I switch and have one be my Tonic, because sometimes...you can't get to and press the "T" fast enough lol. My thumb is faster. The guy you mentioned was using a bot, a program that does specific things (like auto click the mouse infinitely) and is definitely cheating, in most any online game you get banned when caught using one, POTCO, probably and shouldn't be any different.

    • Respect your fellow pirates - Pirates of the Caribbean Online does not tolerate any swearing, cheating, bullying or overt harassment toward other players. Disciplinary action will be taken should any one of these occur while playing.


    • Never reveal any of your personal information - The best way to ensure you stay safe online is to NEVER share your real name, phone number, address, email or passwords with anyone.

    #4 is the rule here. You can and if caught WILL get banned for using any outside program that alters the state of the game.

    Yeah you may be right about that. The history of pirates, real pirates, proves this. However, Disney WILL not accept that as an answer. In fact, they will not accept any answer. If you are caught breaking rule #4, you will be banned, no excuses will be heard.
