I just always assumed it was poor server maintenance and programming by BW, seeing how they haven't fixed the ability lag yet, that has been here since day 1. But I see people talking about it alot now, saying there is a lag hack. If so, this is a very serious problem, and should go at the very top of BW's priority list. I don't know how many games I've quit playing cuz of hacks.
On my realm i WARNED players about hacking lags, but all considered me NOOB. So i stoped to prove i am right even if i have seen enough to take conclusion. Ya, indeed, they can bug or lag the game so they can HACK undetected. Those programs exist since WOW game and are designed to work here too. You can see players untouchable like they are far away from you even if you are on top of them, you will see players vanishng, using /stuck bug to disapear 20-30 m away, you will see speed hack, lag hack and many more, ALL NBOT INVESTIGATED PROPER YET:

Good job DEVS. Be sure we love u for that!

Wow I have come up against a lot of the hacks since the release and thought I could identify them well... today I am playing PVP and every 2nd match was against the same team... sure enough all of a sudden there is massive lag when we are winning or trying to capture a node...
So I think it is me and leave the match
Next few matches against other teams, no problems... This lag kept happening... but only against this team
I asked on the open fleet chat and was told it is a lag hack... "phwfff" I said... how can they lag another player on another client when the game is server based?
Well after doing some research online and even finding a few forum/websites that detail how to do it...
I now believe it to be true...
This is a major problem because this goes beyond client hacks...
Anyway... when is Bio going to Fix the holes in the program and actually introduce a deterrent that will actually "deter" the hacking
A one week suspension is a joke... if they only play once a week, why would they care... how about making it a month to start then 3 months... then kicked completely
And before someone replies to this and says... it isn't a hack and hacks don't exist... and have you any proof?
Guess what I do... I have setup a recording device that is separate to the PC and recorded the different hacks... I have yet to send them to Bio as I can't get a response from Bio as to where I can send it.

There is no way -- I don't mean in the "omg, no wai!" sense -- to cause lag to happen on your machine, besides actually directly breaking into your machine and screwing with the network stack, or hacking the ISP and messing with their switches. If you're seeing a packet spike, that has everything to do w you and your ISP, and absolutely nothing to do with anything that anyone else on the internet is doing. You can believe whatever nonsense you care to, based on whatever irrational standards you enjoy, but that's the reality from a computer / network engineering perspective.

Well funny these should be mentioned.. I was in VS today and I play a sniper.. I ducked into cover but none of my cover abilities were available because i got knocked out of cover but never came out of cover.. but as soon as our side cleared out the door the lag stopped and repeated itself on the other door.. when we were fighting again.. Its bizarre cause i seldom if ever hit a lag spike between my connection and the fact that like many of you i have a pretty potent gaming rig.. not likely to happen frequently.. I'm going to pay more attention to who we are fighting when this occurs

Well a lot of people in the CS area are reporting greater than average Lag spikes since Friday. Does this mean this is the cause, no idea, are there lag switches out there? yup first ran into people useing them when I played Xbox live MW2. The fix there was noob tube or equip a RPG (sadly we have nothing like that) until they rage quit. Also different goal in that game.

The real question I have is can they even tell? With the lag that poops up every so often and effects some but not others? Or is this a side effect of lag swtiches?

yes there are some lag hacks.

This.

In the past week, there has been a few times where I was in cover and couldnt use my cover abiltilties. At first I thought it was another SS popping me out out of cover with ability, then I noticed it wasn't. Also a few times after getting out of CC I couldnt go back into cover either...again no ability used to prevent me. So just chalked it up as a hack.

So much ignorance of how network communications actually work going on in this thread.

Someone using a 'lag switch' would not benefit from it. The game would rubber band you back to the position you were at when you re-sync. Using it to avoid envrionmental damage or 'pass the ball after dieing' would not work either - these are things that the server controls. If the server thinks your dead, it automatically handles the ball being transferred, and any packets from a lagged client saying "Hey I'm passing the ball" are ignored (Server: Lol nope, you're dead son). Claims of this happening could be from passes being mid-air while the carrier dies (and could also be combined with the known bug of the pass circle not showing up, but rewatching this on video will clearly show the beacon of light over the carrier disappearing before they die, showing a pass).

Similarly, lagging yourself out in a fire trap would not help as the server would know where you are and still apply the damage, and your death.

Also, the 'lag attack' that you guys commonly see, the one which affects your framerates, is occured by the server loading a new instance of the warzone for another group of players. This has been noticed if you are the center of huttball at the time, you'll see a bunch of nametags pop up for a few seconds during the lag, then disappear. It also shows up in Novare, right in the center of the map where the speed boost is. Your client is loading, and then unloading the profiles of all these players. Why the system bothers sending this information to a completely different instance is just another case of this game's horribly inefficient coding.

Where's the self entitled computer/software/network/system/game designer engineering expert who tells us that there's no hacks and/or cheats in this game?! Usually, there's at least one of these fellows in a thread like this
PvP kiddies logic:
If you're good then you'll have to agree with me and I won't insult you.
If you don't agree with me then obviously you're bad and I will insult you.
