Just experienced it. A player scored 2 sec after match started, then scored again within 10 sec, was flying across the map, continuously, no force sprint.

Please report such incidents to Customer Service along with the character names.

Please be aware that several classes feature short term speed abilities, so before reporting, please make sure that you're not seeing a legit game mechanic.

Obviously, if someone scores 2 seconds into Huttball, that's not legit.

I haven't in Huttball but in Voidstar someone teleported through the doors and won the match within seconds.

In Huttball I usually see friends helping each other win by bring the ball into our own side.
I Hutball so hard Garadda wants to fine me.

It doesn't seem like it would too hard to implement.

Judging by BioWare's love of extensive metrics, though, I can't see anybody getting away with it for long.

I saw the speed hack in beta, I a 50 sage, was chasing a 50 assassin (Rocko, Ebonlore guild)... with no snares on me, 50% slow on him (force slow) / dot that had 20% slow on it. I could stun him, but his force speed would further enhance is hacked speed. He was running at a constant force speed level by my best estimate, I could not keep tabs with him at all during the match just stun him in traps, even with my force speed (not that my slows/ball carrying slows had any effect on him. I expect we will see it a bit in live until they fix it.

Please do the community a favor and report those players and be sure to record it via fraps. If you see them running for more than 5 seconds at high speed, its a hack... unless they are out of combat sprint + ball running works... even still it should still be obvious think 150% move speed + for more than 5 seconds = hacks.

I'm assuming you are talking about the Condem's Republic Ebonlore guild since "The Ebonlore" has no Rocko.

How do you think Louden gets all those world firsts Too bad they can't stand competition and had to move their guild off HoG. He did the same thing in Rift.

Out of curiosity, do you keep an eye on well known hack sites?

I could link you to at least 1 with swtor exploits / hack details (but obviously won't via a public post on the forum) and I'm certain a simple google search will find many more.

You (Bioware in general) should always keep up to date on what these sorts of sites are saying, they often discuss how they did it too to show off for the other members of the sites, so you can immediately see the real problem (not the fact that people are speedhacking but *how* they are speedhacking).

I saw a Sith capping a turret while stealthed today.

Nice Job BW.
