That's it. Just please read just this top paragraph and post your vote at minimum. Thanks!

Many people have blogged about solutions yet Bioware doesn't even seem to make an effort within the game to stop this. Please encourage Bioware to add a "Vote out of Warzone due to hacking" button as the current button doesn't work that way, or to add a "Vote to send hacking report" button. When you vote please thank Bioware for their hard work, and amazing game, they do make external efforts to stop hacking.

***If someone is a jerk on this post please report them, or ignore them and do not let them get to you as there will be lots of mean spirited people commenting


If you don't believe in hacking (cheating)....just do a Google search on how to hack SWTOR...and you will see that it works. There are entire websites about how to cheat. There are some very extensive bot (fake players) programs, and glitches...like the 11 player queue cheat. Bioware's account was hacked into before the game was even released.

**A lot of people hack ON BOTH SIDES. So don't just take anyone's word for it. Though it seems to me that the Empire cheats way more...as I have lost Novare coast 14 out of 16 times in the last two weeks. But other levels seem slightly more fair..yet not by much.

***Also after various updates I have seen things shift, as far as victory's. This is probably because patches have stopped hacking at times, or because Bioware made adjustments to certain characters. Just something to keep in mind. This may be further evidence of hacking.

*****Another thing to consider are guilds. We often lose in Warzones because you are playing a skilled, and character calculated guild. I encourage you to make your own if you lose a lot. So don't think everything is cheating it may be this.

Thank you for your time!

OMG I think I'm gonna get sick now... I thought most of those reports were rare cases or lack of knowledge of other classes but just a quick search on google lead me to a site where gazillions of hacks are being offered (and somtimes sold for money?!) where users would mock how easy it is to speedhack or go through voidstar doors undetected...

This is a big hit for me regarding BW's credibility. If they don't sort this out for rankes WZ the PvP aspect of this game has certainly no future :[

I'm pretty sure the 8+ people thing has been fixed a while back, not sure about the others.

I doubt a 'vote' will change anything, especially since lots of people will keep claiming 'I don't see it' (well, often times you not seeing it is the point of a cheat)

I've definitely had the 'window glitch' happen to me in novare coast. though that one is not that bad when you know how to be able to target them anyway, I'm sure not everybody knows how to, though (there's a specific spot inside the booth that lets you click them, instead of outside where for some reason you will get the 'target not in sight' message)

Then you dont pvp obviously. Or i will say something very derogatory.

It happens is frequent and sometimes people get caught. There is nothing to do but report them and move on.
They guy using force speed with the hutball for 1 min up and down the entire map is not cheating no. Insta heal from almost 0 no no cheat, and lag switching to goal not cheating.

Just talk to them i do.

I honestly don't think they care about bug/hacks.A few months ago,while playing with my settings to try increase my fps in warzones,I came across a pretty gamebreaking voidstar bug/exploit.I submitted a ticket,described in great detail what happened and how...The ticket was locked and deleted in a few hours..
Now,a few months later,the bug is still there and working.

They do care and are investigating every report people make. We have had our share of suspicious warzones and BioWare is checking to see if some players are outside their margin.

HAcks aren;t as obvious as they were in the beginning. Now you have hacks that simply don't apply combat slow, reduce the efrect of slows. make it where you can't be knocked off ledges, etc. Subtles things that players may not realize because it's not as blatant as running aroun dat 500% normal speed. There is a sniper on my server who never suffers the in-combat speed reduction; A sentienel who ALWAYS has that speed buff up (always sprinting in combat). This chick flies off the speeder in Aldeeraan sprinting so she definitely hasn't gained 30 centering. There was an entire guild that was CC proof and could not be knocked of ledges. I report this stuff, but Bioware never does anything about it.

Maybe Bioware should just make hacking legal and give us hacks. At least it would be even.

Are you sure its not valorous call? it grants 30 centering and has a 3 min CD. I'll use that sometimes and speed buff to save my force leap for a knockback.

Are u sure its hacking, because as a ops it seems I gain a speed boost just from casting certain moves like debilitate and kolto probe, (I know debilitate is suppose to for 4 secs with talent, but it lasts a lot longer then 4 secs for me) I know kolto probe says nothing about a speed boost, but it jsut seems sometimes in warzones I cast it, and the more and more a cast it the faster I go, I dont know if its me or somebody else doing it, but it seems like its my kolto probe, it seems to happen only when im in combat and when I switch directiosn a lot, if I run in a straight line I dont get it. I think biowares game is just glitched lol,
