Extremely long post. Please read this and do not PM me as most is explained below.

With time comes wisdom. As such I like to share my thoughts and any transparency possible.
Definitive Edition. Will not be released. Period.
Why? When I first designed the cheat I made it for specifically for Tracer and Zarya.
Then added support for more freedom, however most just toggle pro mode and do what the cheat is intended to do:
Play with a small advantage.
Today DVAS is notorious for being the most legit looking piece of software for a small buck, which annoys people a lot.
Instead coder's from all around the world decided to create alternative solutions by simply adding rage features and for insane cheap prices to get more customers.
For me it wasn't about any gain. When I wrote this software "I mentioned The Defense of Cheating." (Article)
Whilst I wasn't very honest, I did hint about my personal problems. I infact suffer from carpal tunnel and had have operations on my dominant wrist several times.
I cannot play any First person shooter normally. I cannot mantain friends in-games due to the super poor performance and physical pains followed. I can't even play BF4 on my PS4 anymore.
Writing this piece of software let me play the game like intended. That's why there's no rage features, that's why there's no auto aim.
The software is smart and uses 'magnetic' lock-ons, subtle ones. Similar to how aim-assist works for Console players.
Similar to how I contracted a personal coder for me back in CSGO to make a subtle aim based tool for my needs and nothing fancy.
There's no real advantage you'd have against a good player. When I released Highrise I mentioned that asking for upgrades was pointless as the game is team-based and less aim based. Most users hit that ELO climbing wall somewhere in the 3000 range where they realize they can't play 1v11.
I and many others have also said several times, you should only use it when in need. As it's a subtle assist, not something you should rely on.
You instead form bad habits in the end and move your mouse less and have 0 game sense, basically an aim zombie.
That's where it all escalates. Instead I get asked to add more features to rehabilitate these people.
Because for some reason, If one provider offers new features I am somehow obliged to provide more cutting edge solutions.
I did add Highrise update which made long-range possible however it would have intentional sway to make it less obvious that the software was helping the user out, otherwise it would be headshot city.
And I stated back then my stance would not change. I am not gonna make rage features, I adhere by my principles.
What annoys me the most is the frequent rampaging cheaters that inhabit the game today.
Today people pump out tons of cheats that compete with various providers, all offering tons of extreme features with settings spiking the cheats to perform outrageous things.
Korea is a notable example, where koreans will pump out tons of lvl 1 accounts on American servers with roided cheats and then ruin everyones fun. Then those accounts vanish within a day, but come back the next.
We used to have this back in CSGO.
And then playerbase just took a turn. Today CSGO is barely moving anywhere in player numbers, with people leaving and coming back to see if the rage hacking problem is gone. A standstill mass.
I personally know that several CSGO professionals are cheating, online being the most popular. And nothing will ever be done about it, I know this. Maybe one of the professionals will write a book about it in their later years.
I have even spoken personally with moderation staff for several sites and no one likes the rampant situation, believe it or not moderators often play legit as they have years of experience in cheating and already know where the
road leads. They rather keep their accounts, but share any wisdom they have from experience.
As for my decision to not release Definitive Edition, I choose not to be another cog part of the machine. I believe in what I wrote in the article above, I've advertised several times that this cheat won't make you a pro, it won't snipe some poor guy 1 mile away, it won't make you a Twitch personality or someone famous. It's just a small tool to enjoy the game if you are unable to.
I might take some flack for it, I might get flamed or threatened but after REVIEWING the stuff I was about to release as an update I realized I fucked up. I like the game, and I do not want to see some guy with a bow running around
zapping everyone with an arrow and claim he's skilled. I don't want to log back into a deserted server, only to be hit instantly by a cheating 13 year old taunting sniper. We have TF2 for that Kappa
As you start winning rather unfairly, it becomes akin to beating a dead horse.
You don't actually win in the end.
I know people might protest and leave. Someone told me that only 10% of your current subscribers will come back as recurring subscribers.
And it seems to be rather false. In my case 0.5% Kappa so either way people don't actually renew so I lose nothing.
Some argue that I should release these tools for the huge potential PROFIT (or enticing people to come back) or getting ahead of competition, get my name out there!
But I want to keep this small. Hell, when the banwaves rolled out for dozens cheat providers I decided to not profiteer from the influx of users, I sent them to a veterans fund page where they could donate their money which was a success.
Most of the potential 'would-be' cheaters are gone it seems, those 7 banwaves that hit worldwide scared a lot of people off. A lot of cheating sites lost tons of traffic, interest and such.
Everything is a ghostzone, forum sections, social channels. All drying up.
In fact my site is also suffering from the standstill masses problem, this month I only gained 20 unique IPs average (except there's a lot more dips).
Here's some additional fun stats:
Countries, ranked most interest TOP-BOTTOM lowest.
However a small update will be deployed to change some pricing, competitions, and a small optimization patch to keep the community entertained as this was planned a long time ago.
If you have any discontent with anything above, go ahead and give me some flack. I know I'm wrong but I can take it.
