No there's a very small and specific snug spot that completely hides your nameplate, it is different from the normal sight line issues where there are just objects in the way. It adds a higher level of stealth based on a flaw in the design for people who are aware of it. It's totally an exploit, there's no way it was intentional.

So far, your entire argument is based on "I play for a leet guild hence I know everything!"

But since you claim "superior observational skills", tell me this:
Do you know how a lag switch works and what it would look like in game?
Do you know how speedhacks or teleporting works?
Do you know how GCD hacks work and what that would look like?

Please demonstrate your expertise, not just empty bravado. I could - can you?
Lag switches are silly and don't even really provide any kind of advantage. Most likely the player is dead when his connection finally catches up, as evidenced earlier in this thread with that x-lis or whatever guy who got his face exploded.
Speedhacks: carnage marauders with speed bonus with predation and picking up the speed boost
GCD hacks: carnage marauder using berserk and retaliate

unless you are a stealth class

lag switches can be usefull if you are stealthed out and go and cap a door... seen it done

a guildie actually knew this persons dad, and confirmed that he was in fact using a lag switch. this was in june or something though. Havent seen it recently

I'm confused as to how lag will help you cap a door behind the guy guarding it

if i understood it correctly, you flip the lag switch while stealthed. then you can unstealth and cap the door and the server still shows you being stealthed. In essence, you cap the door while in stealth.

I could be wrong, but i had my camera on the door the whole time, and there was nobody there. as soon as the bomb was capped he appeared for an instant then stealthed again...

Again this was on the first server i was on. and it was a long time ago.

I may not PVP as much as others on here, but I have never seen the guilds accused of cheating, actually do any cheating. Simple to me, if you accuse, you better have proof. If there is no proof, you should apologize for false accusations.

They fixed this AWHILE back and it wasnt a lag switch some people did it without even knowing aka guild vs guild. There was A LOT of bugs back in the day their is still an issue with some mechanics I.E. Juggs leaping and making it seem like they are lagging out/untargeteable when in reality its a server issue and not the person pressing something or flipping a switch its been out since launch still have yet to fix it

I am aware of the exact bug you are speaking of. This was after that bug was smashed. I'm not certain it was a lag switch. His dad said that's what he was using.

Either way, if you read about what a lag switch does it seems very possible that you can appear stealthed to everyone else but actually be capping the door. (Even when not the host) nit saying I'm right by any means. Just sharing what I've read.

Not just guilds...I was told I hack. By a teammate. When I ask how so, they responded that I was using a stealth hack on my toon in the sig. Said there was no reason for me to be popping in and out of stealth and then staying stealthed after I did it a few times. On the run. Going to the objective...
