I understand the viewpoint above but even if cheaters think they’re Robin Hood they’re not Robin Hood.
Robin Hood robbed the rich to fund the poor. Also in this case he didn’t have specific beef with “the rich”, it was more “the royalty, who are taxing people into poverty without providing the services expected from those taxes”. So for the cheaters to be Robin Hood, they’d have to somehow be creating gems and giving them out to the least fortunate players. It’s still a pretty long stretch.
Instead the cheaters are robbing from the poor, as in “the other players who could be getting the prizes they are getting”. And they’re giving to themselves. That’s not Robin Hood. That’s just “a thief”. Part of getting on the leaderboard involves triumph over the RNG, but if you have the teams that’s more or less guaranteed. These people are angry because they’ve played GoW for “a really long time” and they haven’t been given a place at the top for zero effort. So now, to get back at the game (which is just an abstract entity with no feelings), they’re lashing out at the players who had nothing to do with their pain.
No thanks. That’s not the origin story of a sympathetic villain. It’s the origin story of a henchman who tries to hit Batman with a pipe to take out his anger that because People Are Too Offended Today he lost a job for setting the HR Manager’s car on fire on Diversity Day.
