So, my clan, Redeem, ran into this guy who posted a fake 3:24 of the Shadow Thief nightfall back during arc specialist. There are several points during this video where if you pay close attention or have enough experience with the strike you can easily see that it is sped up and he skips him going to orbit and goes straight to the end game time. It's easy to fake an end screen time simply by sitting in the activity until the desired time since the end screen has no indication of the activity of it being complete. So I am proposing an idea of forcing people to show them leaving the activity, entering orbit, and showing the end time or their run will be denied. From now on I will be paying close attention to every detail of runs I verify to ensure there is nothing phony about any runs.
I thought standard practice was that:
a) A video is required. b) You can only go back to orbit after "Mission Complete" pops up on your screen.
As a video of the whole thing is required, and you have to see "Mission complete" pop up, that should make it very hard (impossible?) to cheat. (unless some crafty editing happened)
The thing is, you can show the full run but have parts sped up just enough to not be noticable, mission complete can show up as it's needed to but you can edit out the time between orbiting and showing mission complete with a fake mission report that you just sat in the activity to get because there is no indication on the report that it was complete. Long story short, you can fake it because Bungie is dumb.
Any reasonable way to help prevent this? (ie. require the footage to be live-streamed before editing)
PS. Good catch.
The easiest way to prevent this is to just make sure its not sped up in any way to a point to were you can tell its not a recording issue. The footage having to be live-streamed isn't always possible for some runners who's internet can't handle both destiny and twitch running (in the case of me my internet makes streaming xbox almost impossible). Me and FleshCrunch have a lot of experience with this game and can tell when something is being doctored into run.
