Sorry to sound condescending but I think this is a candidate for the tin foil hat brigade. Even if this was going on and to any real extent what could BW do about it? I donít think anything could be done without investing a whole load of time and money into combating something that doesnít really exist or if it does exist it is an insignificant inconvenience.
I have been in matches where it seems as if our team is literally throwing the match. I don't doubt this is going on. I was able to understand the chart too and it makes since. You just have to think laterally and not in the linear. I saw this in WoW too. People with multiple accounts helping friends on the other side.

No one had to "make me think" they were cheating. I have been told multiple times that they were, and asked to participate. I also have friends who cheat with bot healers, on GW and have had people tell me they do that on here.

So it def happens. I have also read many times that the cheaters get on the blogs here and post threads about how it never happens. So lol. I don't even know if I can trust you. Obviously it happens, even Bio Ware admitted it in at least one way similar to what I was talking about.

Seems like an awful lot of work for nothing, both the chart and the supposed cheating you're talking about.

I burst out laughing when I saw the chart. The OP has to be trolling us. I optimize my gear, group with guildies and we use strategy when we run WZs. We are cheating big time.

I may only be a war hero, but I pvp with multiple guilds and their pre-mades and I have never heard of this kind of cheating, at least not intentionally. Sometimes you have 2 pre-mades of 4 and you get queued into seperate sides of the same faction vs same-faction warzone and everyone is too lazy to switch voice channels. In that very rare situation, yes, there's some benefit to hearing the other side.

Otherwise, I've never seen this "cheating" in ranked or non ranked matches. If it goes on, they are not very open about it.
