i never knew this could happen until i watched a couple of toons walk right thru a door. not sure how it works but the screen read "20 secs til w/e" and they started to shake as if they were stuck in place and then they were thru the door way before the 20 sec were up.there's a guild on shii-cho that will this method w/o fail.

I always laugh when poster say they never saw a hack..so whose the noob now? If you are honest and not a troll..ya there is hacks. In fact there are also exploits and Bioware has confirmed both hacks and exploits in official posts so for anyone to claim there isnt..well players and bioware says there is so please just go away. Ive seen them used and others have seen them used, we are experienced pvpers and know when we are getting owned by a good player or a hack. Its easy to spot. Im not gonna list them or defend that this is the truth. All I can say is Ive reported players myself..and look suddenly they are missing from the pvp queue for a few days, a week or never seen again. Coincidence..sure...I dont care why the little losers left Im just glad they are gone. No one who has any real ability needs to hack in this game..if you need to buy credits, power level or use exploits god you are a tard. Dont spend your time on a vote here just report them..trust me it works.

Hey.

In my opinion the word hacking/cheating is wrong.
People just uses the glitches that are in the game (Yes, it can be cheating).

For example, there is a glitch in which when scoundrel use the ability to stealth his party members while their are planting, the party member becomes invisible while planting....

Happened to me and my teammates often on a Frostclaw server, Imps use it quite often.
I personally don't have Scoundrel and didn't made use of that glitch.

Also people aren't cheating, because the Jedi Sentinel are just so DAMN OP and Operative Healing specc is OP!!!

Jedi Sentinel/Sith Marauder:
Personally have a Jedi Sentinel (alt), and have lvl 50 on him now, on low lvl PVP I was able to kill 1 vs 3 (me 1).
I don't mean killing noobs, since Bradley, HozzkeJr, Lacedeamon etc. aren't noobs (they were playing on their low lvl alts).
I was 1 vs 3, and I won (many times) on Frostclaw server!!!

The point is, this class is OP!!! and the Seninels/Mar have SUSTAINED BURSTY DPS (without using any buffs to have big hits) and to boost they have like 5 defensible abilities, also *** A FORCE CAMOUFLAGE AND 6 SECONDS 99% DMG REDUCTION.
This class have actually many stunns, FORCE LEAP 12 cd, its imobilize you for 3 seconds (even if your resolve is full), Choke and AoE stun.

Scoundrel/Operative (healer):
They can outheal almost any dmg.
To KILL a scoundrel you have to get 2 or 3 people (even if your full WH geared, and the Scoundrel/Operative is only full BM geared).
I actually don't really know the system, but if a guy who play normal plays it, ITS already then OP.


WHY! do you people think that the people who played Sages/Sorcs, Commando stopped playing it and changed to SENTINELS/MARAUDERS or Operatives Healers, cause since these classes got NERFED (Sages/Sorcs healing TOTAL nerfd for PVP), the people CHANGED to OP CLASSES like Sentinel/Marauder, Operatives healers!

AND I'M NOT WHINING BECAUSE I'M NOT A GOOD PLAYER, if your on Frostclaw,
then my Jedi Shadow is Xibbias (lvl 50).
My Sentinel is Ododo (lvl 50)
My Sorc is Kariks (lvl 50)
and I'm not a noob.
With my Infiltration spec (burst dps) on my Shadow, I can give a nightmare to some players, the same on the Balance spec (DoT spec).
Not to mention the Kinetic Combat tree (defense tree).

BTW the Hybrid Tanking tree (defense) for Jedi Shadow should also be nerfed, well not the CC, cause if the CC for Jedi Shadow would be nerfed then Shadow would be worse than the Sages atm.
Well, if you play tanking spec with the Stalker gear your just like a Guardian with almost the Sentinel DPS.

Inflitration spec is very hard to play, cause your survivability got nerfed at patch 1.2, it's hard to play now.
But after some practice, you should be able to play it, Balance tree is also good as it is.
The CC's for Shadows are everything, if you would nerfd that, then Shadow would be plain usless.

Sorry for so long post...

Regards
Xibbias

I know what you mean. I actually think glitches can be fun, and cool, and if they aren't too crazy give the game some character. An example of this is the "endless waterworld" glitch on Super Mario World for Nintendo.

It just depends on the glitch. The glitch you mentioned ^ I would consider cheating, because of the overwhelming advantage it gives that specific class character. If everyone could do this it would be fair, and again kind of cool.

Also if the glitch is something like a shortcut through a room or something...that's not a huge deal, and it's kind of cool if we can all do it.

When it comes to the spontaneousness of glitches it's the wild west.

Look I and other freinds have been reporting the same players night after night that use hacks etc. Nothing has ever been done since the game went live. I am tiered now, pvp was my main enjoyment and it got spoiled. If the powers that be can't be bothered to fix a issue thats existed since launch, why should I continue too sub, when i have no fair chance too win.

Unsubbed finally, I'm not going back to WoW or Arena, I found some decent FTP games with decent FTP PvP that actually makes me laugh.

As for ToR and PvP ? Its NO EXISTANT since 1.2 end of debate !

Hmmm, Bioware, ask yourselves, is this why we lost 400k subscriptions? A good possibility, no one likes a cheater. NO ONE! plus why Cheat at a game like this, killing someone or winning a match isn't rocket science so why the extra. I would encourage bioware to look upon this as a top priority or they WILL lose more subscriptions. It;s a no brainer: Stop Hacks, more people play game. Simple. If they feel that they shouldn't do anything then they are just letting a great game die.

That's AWESOME.

Hacks are there. They happen. I've had it happen where my speedy toon is barely out of the gate in NC before the enemy has south and their West/East node full-capped. I've been staring dilligently at a voidstar door when a bomb appeared. Had a guy go into the wall in voidstar so I couldn't hit him and "LOL" at me while he hit me. And of course, we all love the exorcist-jerky movements of the screencap thing (seeing that a lot lately...).

Cheaters exist. But there are also other things making this whole argument a lot more cloudy.

A) Bugs/Glitches. Such as this stupid and inaccurate resolve bar.
B) Lack of knowledge about other classes (I admit I know little about Ops/Slingers) and their various abilities
C) Paranoia!!!!!!!!!!

I like to play super good teams of players and I'm fine with a well fought loss (or even a well deserved beating by a super skilled team). I just wish we didn't know how easy it was to cheat in SWTOR, which always seems to leave us wondering HOW we got beat...

After the banhammer was dropped a few weeks ago on several players from my old server alone, it seemed to get better. However, since the transfers, its gotten worse again. I was in several WZ yesterday where I saw a number of people hacking (screenprint "jitter" hack to be specific). Many people have new names for their characters and I wonder if that has given some people a new lease on cheating.

Frankly cheating makes no sense to me since winning from cheating is an empty victory and shows the true character if the player. The depths some people will go to in order to cheat is amazing and I have to wonder if they do it to get noticed for a job? Impress a GF/BF? Compensate for some personality deficit? Prove to the world they are somehow smarter than the average bear?

BW is faced with 1) Declining subs, 2) New F2P MMO competition (GW2 just to name one), and 3) A bunch of morally bereft PvPers contributing to #1. MMO developers today need to assume everyone will try to cheat, no one will think PvP is balanced, and getting everything yesterday is never enough. Thats a tough position to be in...but its tougher when you have to deal with these things after the fact. I love the game...I can only hope it can be saved so I can come back to it a year from now and truly enjoy PvP in TOR.
