About the hackers.

Also, a couple of hours before the servers officially went down, they "unofficially" went down. As this was happening; one of the main Wind Slayer hack developers (who we will not name) posted an announcement about himself and a list of security suggestions for IG to relay to Hamelin on the WS2 Forum. He was banned around an hour after he'd posted his announcement but he later came back using the username
"[GM]Vasflamoo" (with two "O"s) and once again reminding Ignited Games of their "security flaws". Of course he was banned almost immediately. One thing we found interesting was that the hacker was saying that if Ignited Games emailed him a "cease and desist"-like email that we would stop developing the hacks for the game. We don't know if IG has reached out to the hacker in any way after his announcement.

Could you tell me your thoughts on what you think how Hamlein should have handled the situation? I'm really curious.

They should take the incident into consideration and start focusing more on efficient security. They're being a bunch of lazy dingus' and assuming that because the game is kid-orientated that it's not going to attract bored hackers that will ruin the game.
