But your individual share of the damage is less than the benefit accrued the cheater. This is what makes cheating work.

Are you saying, "When **** rolls downhill, it spreads thin, so you shouldn't care when you get hit by the ****?" I'm just checking. I'm not sure I've ever heard the, "Well, it's not THAT bad that you unfairly compensate for/suffer because of X people who are committing Y crime-that-isn't-drug-use," argument before.

And still got around 750 million credits, i want to see if Bioware does something to him...ill tell you guys as soon as i have news, at this exact moment, nothing has been done to him.
Have you reported him?

Because if you do not, that makes you an accessory to Exploiting.

You don't get in trouble for it, but you look like a total d-bag because of it.

Look on youtube. Search for swtor speed hack pvp. There are quite a few videos there. I have been in 1 match where this happened in personally. He went from one side of the arena over the goal line in like 2 seconds. It was the second time I ever left a wz...

If someone discovers an exploit then they should report it to bioware, by not doing so and using the exploit for their own gains they are cheating just the same as any hacker. This should result in a complete ban. As for those who believe that the results of punishments are not our business, i say the complete opposite, these people should be named and shamed and their punishment held up as an example. Otherwise how are we as a community supposed to have any confidence in bioware? For all we know they do nothing at all to these people, i for one want proof that they deal with these players accordingly.
