hacks are out of control

I tried to give specific examples of the hacks i see/saw in a 9 match day...Bioware promtely deleted my thread and gave me a warning...said i was violating the forum policies talking about hacks....I would love to tell you where to see all the hacks running in the game right now, but if i say anything about that, the mods will delete this post. If you dont believe me, you can search my posts and you will see the pm i recieved...i copy and pasted it...why would the mods be worried about us discussing hacks if there arent any? Its because they are running, and have been running since day one...Its not hard to hack a system with all the client side files stored on the client CPU. Its basic programming and the compliers are free lol. And, there is no warden program running in the backround to detect "manipulated" files and delete/redownload them.

It was funny how all the premades guilds we complain about hacking and usually wofflestop us were getting owned right after yesterdays patch...its because you have to change the hack code to the new exe files and it hadnt been done yet. Hense, no hacks were up yet. There are entire websites dedicated to this lol...For a fee, you can join and even copy/upload the code you have created. WoW had this problem until the warden program went in...EQ1 still has this problem, but there is little PvP there so its not such a concern.

I will say this again...I love close matchs and i dont mind losing...Losing makes me better...But, when i have 0 chance of winning because someone is hacking/exploiting, it gets old. As i said before, the punishment is not severe enough when caught hacking in this game...There should be no second chances, ban them...However, if you think this is too harsh...make a hack server and place all the hackers/exploiter there when they get caught...They can mess with each other and hack to their hearts content...wont affect the rest of us and bioware can make an attempt at saving their bottom line.

Like or dont like it, believe me or dont...doesnt change anything...let the flame wars continue.
Vlahd
If you see me running, you had better catch up !!!

This guy. lol.

Comes in, throws names of some of the best players/guilds on server being hackers, provides no proof. Seems legit.

I mean, those guys couldnt possibly have great skill/gear/coordination, right. must be hax.
For every man there is a sentence, a string of words, which has the power to destroy him.

There are some really bad glitches in this game that are not the fault of the player. Just the other I was in huttball on a upper platform, and a op opened up on me. He circled once, and it looked to me he fell off the ledge with that stuttering thing people do when synching is off, but he was still hitting me, and I couldn't see him at all. I know the guy isn't a cheater.

I don't know why I bother since you refuse to HEAR any explanation, but the reason you weren't getting owned right after the patch, is because you qued in the afternoon instead of the night. Pst, pubs do better on Harbinger during the day. Your wins had nothing to do with the imp premades not having loaded up new hacks yet, they had everything to do with you being in que when the good pubs are usually on.

Asuna will you please knock it off!? Can't you see? He used the word "hack" and "exe" in the same sentence, which means, he knows everything about everything! A sage moving faster than usual? He must be hacking, not using Force Speed. Marauder is taking close to no damage and then disappeared? Hacker, not using Force Camouflage or Undying Rage. You can't deny that every person who beats him is a hacker!

Vlahd you mind telling us your ingame name so we can focus you into oblivion and hopefully off the game?

Because openly discussing exploitation leads to more people using exploits because you're gosh darned advertising them. It's not your right to discuss exploitation. You agreed to that as part of the EULA and Code of Conduct. If you feel someone is exploiting the game, you report it and shut up.

Never seen a hack and I have valor 88, 82, 82, 72, 60, and that is including being valor capped while leveling on a few of my characters.

On the other hand, I've seen so many accusations of hacks from bad players. Seriously, how can people not know about improved transcendence and predation 8 months after release. The weird glitch/lag issues I can somewhat understand, but still, people are way too quick to accuse.

I am a combat spec sent, I used transcendance and every other time they have been about halfway, by the time i get into view of the node. I know that imps have a closer advantage to that side just like we have the advantage on the other side. But I have never seen them on the node so quick. Any suggestions on if it was a minor speed hack. Now keep in mind it was only him at the node. Even with trance., and the speed boost sorcs have, could they get there that fast?
If the other player took the speeder the second it spawned and got the speed buff from a mara (I think the bubble of sage/sorc give a short speed boost too) and used force speed the second predation is down and you took the speeder lately I think he was not even close to hacking.

On the other hand, if he took the speeder lately and you took it quickly and he got zero speed buff, there is something wrong.
Guarding a healer is not only the job the the skill ''guard''. It is also your job to stay around the healer to be a plague for the people attacking the healer.

There is one particularly blatant exploit in Voidstar. It involves being harpooned to a certain spot on the edge of the bridge that places you under the world. While there you are unable to die, suicide, do anything. The only option is to quit the game. It's usually followed by a childish emote.

It's happened several times, so it's not a one time glitch.

Other than that, I've only seen one other exploit, a warper, out of hundreds of WZs. Even that could be blamed on lag. Who knows. I really don't think the cheating is all that rampant.

Well the stealth one just happened to me in Civil War.

It was great, really close game. Battled for mid for half the match. Eventually my side capped it. I sat at snow the entire time watching both sides tick down to around 200.

I saw a few inc so I called for some help. I knew there was a stealth around because I'd seen him go into stealth earlier and never come out. Some friends and enemies arrived, someone popped out of sneak, we had a nice 3v3 going on, I am looking RIGHT AT the cap node at all times, heck we've got two of our guys standing practically right on top of it and I'm only 6 feet away...

It turns red. There is NO ENEMY THERE. Right after it turned red, someone came out of sneak right on top of it.

I know there is a concealment bug in the game, it's been in since launch. It's happened to me and a friend in PvE several times. When it happens, you are free to move and act normally but remain invisible. I don't know the details on how to trigger it but it ruined what was otherwise a very close match.

I don't mind losing but when it is due to an exploitable bug it kinda blows.
