Sorry but it is hacking, killing pvp in this game. must be far more frustrating for ranked warzone peeps..
How fast is your computer? Do you lag? Somebody might have passed it back to him so think about it! And try a marauder w ball in huttball yourself before you start complaining

I'm guessing when he said "I thought he might have passed it before camo" and "While we are looking around for ball and player" that it had occurred to him that there might have been some passing going on, and that he dismissed that theory based on the lack of other players present.

Jus sayin.

It would be nice to see a list. One hack we witnessed and recorded was the teleport one. The player would get the hutball and appear frozen in place. You could not target them then they dissapear and you hear and see the score. Then that same person is back at center. I hope these people got banned, but who knows. One thing people noticed was the match got real laggy when this happened. We played a team yesterday in Voidstar that would die and be on the other side of their door and teleport past the bridge back to the battle. Never once leaving their res point. They claimed they were being pulled. We all know better. All we could do was record , report and send in.

I'm starting to see these things more and more frequently. People speeding away at light speed while snared, getting out of the spawn room to 3-cap before the match even starts, capping a node while completely invisible, warping halfway across the Huttball map, even an instant cap or two. It is happening and it sours the entire warzone for everyone on the opposing team.

If someone on my own team were doing something of the sort, I would not hesitate to report them. I want warzones to be fair and challenging. I don't want to cheat to win. I can't speak for everyone but I would wager that I am in the nonvocal majority in this regard.

The only way to handle cheaters is, to understand they're either kids or have a very small chuchu.
Serious developers cheat on PTS, not on life watehfagg ...

The other day I've seen a Powertech disappear then reappear farther away. I must have looked like this: O.O

I didn't lag, the PT wasn't pulled by a Sorc, he didn't bug out, he simply vanished and reappeared closer to the node.

Later in the same match, said Powertech was running towards the node with an assassin to help defend it. The sin activated Force Speed and ran ahead, the PT activated Speedhack and got to the node before the assassin. Again: O.O. The vanishing might be explained by some extremely well-timed and convenient graphical bug but the fact that he ran faster than a sin with Force Speed cannot be explained any other way.

Also there was this one time I was fighting a Carnage Marauder on my Commando. He jumped at me, knocked him back with Concussive Charge, got off two Grav Rounds, I watched the pretty yellow numbers fly off (2-3k hits each) but his HP remained 100%! Fired off a Demo Round for about 5k, HiB for about 4,5k and Plasma Grenade with Recharge Cells/Tech Override. I watched a ton of yellow and white numbers fly off but his HP was still 100%.
He didn't have Force Camo, or Undying Rage or anything active. I've seen 3-4-5k hit numbers but his HP never moved from 100%, so yeah definitely a hacker.

Also in one CW the enemy team started capping nodes while we were still waiting in our spawn area. I guess they got tired of waiting and decided to go for a walk.

I'd say this can be easily explained without cheats.
We could even add another 20% for 3 seconds from a sorc healers bubble.

I haven't seen anything since pre-release from which I could say without a doubt that it was a cheat. Nothing.
But them again maybe i'm just lucky and the players on my server don't bother with them.
On PoT5 there is one sorc Gingers that hack and theses videos will change your mind.
