Forum site "Xronize" sells cracked Minecraft accounts, site owner fights Mojang and loses

XF Logo Update 6-1Cracking video games has always been frowned upon, and Minecraft is commonly subjected to this form of hacking. Thankfully the percentage of us who pay for the game (myself included) have been able to keep Mojang alive with money and continuing to develop Minecraft. Earlier today a user of Xronize Forums, a website that appears to be related to video games and hacks, reported the illegal distribution of cracked Minecraft accounts on the site to Marc Watson (Mojang's customer support manager). He replied to the message stating, "Thanks, I'll take a look and dispense some justice."

The user was banned from the forum site, after being called names I shouldn't put here because kids read this site (if you promise not to say them here you go). The owner, instead of being mature about Marc's request, has argued on Twitter with him for a while now claiming, "You just love ruining peoples forums don't you?" He also attempted to start a campaign against Marc with the Twitter hashtag #OpMarc.This is just one example of stupid people on the internet doing stupid stuff and getting busted for said stuff. If you want to see the original tweet by Marc as well as Xronize's twitter account they are both at the links below.

EDIT: Someone posted a link to this article on the Xronize forums and asked people not to put bad comments on this article to show Xronize was better than that. They weren't. I just finished deleting almost fifty spam comments from members. Hopefully there won't be a second wave of them since I banned their IPs.

Your wrong. Xronize won. The people at xronize sell minecraft accounts for people who are stupid enough to download and run a fake hack, and or are cracked by their lack of a good password. You need to delve into the world of xronize, and learn for yourself.

Exactly. The mojang team needs to make passwords be longer, more complex, and not be easily guessable such as abc123, password, or minecraft, but instead something like IcanHGX1337#49

Anyway, here's an actual opinion: Alts are only sold due to people getting banned on a server. My opinion is if you really find it that difficult to grief on a server and not get banned then you shouldn't be doing it at all. Most of the kids that sell them are only 12-13 anyway. Think of what your parent's would say, kids.

Its great to know that this is getting cracked down on. I dislike how people in today's society do not even have the decency to actually admit what they have done is illegal and unfair to the people who have bought the game. I also cannot believe how vulgar the members of the forum's community have been towards Mojang and Marc Watson in particular. Good job Marc, down with the baddies, up with the goodies.

I agree with your comment but I would like to add to it also. People whose accounts are cracked are mostly accounts with passwords such as "password" "minecraft" "qwerty" ect. I think mojang should make a stricter password system.

Like Marc said, that is why Mojang accounts exist. But you still don't take advantage of ignorant people creating passwords like that.
