Are there more hackers in NOVA than Eliminate?

This is an odd questions because in my opinion, I think NOVA has more hackers than Eliminate. I have come across far more hackers in NOVA than Eliminate. This is strange to me because I would think the free game would have more hackers since it is open to everyone. What are your thoughts?

Almost every game in NOVA has atleast 1 hacker... It is near impossible to find a legit game. It makes me want my $6 back.

well, another way to look at it is free games = open to everyone = large, mostly unsophisticated userbase = don't know/don't care to figure out how to cheat

paid game = smaller, more informed userbase. being a paid game also means that some people will pirate the game in the first place, in which case you could see why they would be the type of person to cheat. (and cheating in nova requires being jailbroken, which also means they could've pirated the app...so it's kind of a circular thing).

I'm surprised that such a big brand like Gameloft did not take strong security checks to prevent hackers ...
Especially when everybody know they are rampant in FPS genre.

Way more hackers in NOVA. Mainly because Gameloft hasn't updated NOVA since it has been out. Could be hackers or they just found the golden gun in the game.
