Another stealthed official post. What's the story with those? Can we only see them via force meditation?

It's either that or a new cartel market feature.

For just 400 cartel coins (price reduced 50%!) you may see dev posts.

It's just a scarecrow.

Takes 10 mins to write threats about cheating.

A post which declares 10,000 players have been permanently banned for cheating, now that can't be written so fast.

I've played at least 1000 matches, I've never seen something I was sure was a hack. The only thing I've seen is in huttball where someone was in the middle of the arena with the and all of a sudden I hear that he scored. That happened about 2 or 3 times.

Unless all the hacking is tiny changes, like 10% more speed or 10% more health or something, I don't think it is an issue at all. So few people do anything, it is not affecting the game.
Besides there would be a 50% chance they were on your team.

Log Into the Game: Bioware is aware and have left a glaring notification at start-up.

Very thankful Bioware is finally at least acknowledging that hacks do in fact exist in game. Here's hoping the douchebag hackers actually get their toons deleted, permanently ip banned, and origin account banned.

The dev response has probably only been written in English and is still being translated into the other 2 languages. At least, this is the explanation I recall from way back when someone asked why the dev responses sneak in late.

The problem is that when they finally appear, they show up in their original place in the thread, not as the latest post. In busy threads, it's easy for dev posts to go a long time without being noticed. The same thing happens to the dev tracker.

The most notable and recent example is the dev response to the bubble thread in the sorc class forum. It was a very informative post, but because of the delay it was utterly buried in the thread and the dev tracker.
A classic sig that should not be lost:
Stunned , pew pew hack slash , stunned , running backward circles, stunned cannot move, pew pew, break stun, 30 second snare, wha?!?!!? stunned, knockdown, ...less stun more pew pew and hacknslash please.

The speedhacks are annoying, but watch out as well, on my server (the shadowlands) a guy was spamming gen chat about how one of his guild mates has made a clipping hack (walk through walls) and is planning on starting to use it in PvP. ive never seen it done, but i would imagine that if there is enough data client side to spead hack, theres probably enough to clipping hack too
