The amount of hacking in PVP is getting rediculous. Reporting does nothing, apparently recording and uploading vids does nothing either..... What is there to do?

It gets pretty stupid when you play Huttball, and it's 0-5 them in the first 30 seconds because of sped hacking.

What's to be done?

So glad my server doesn't have these mythical hackers.

Interceding to a stealthed target is not "teleporting"
Predation is not "speed hacking"

If you're server hasn't seen these "mythical hackers" then don't presume to know that they're just using "Predation"

There's a difference between Predation and moving from one side of the map to another in under two seconds, all the while glitching as they do it.

Maybe the team knows how to pass?

Don't post unless you provide more context, makes you look bad

Honestly man, I've played since day one and I think most of this is in your head. I've seen speed hackers, they're extremely rare and I haven't seen even one in many many months.

I'm almost certain that you and others like you are confusing speed buffs for speed hacking.

i dont know watching a lvl 39 operative flutter all around the map glitching and rubberbanding and kind of moving at stutter speed was kind of funny. he wasn't even really doing anything for his team and his dps / damage was terrible. it was adorable really haha. it didn't impact his team at all.

if anyone at this point is denying hacking in this game then 1.) they hack themselves or 2.) their guild relies on hacking

I have never seen a hack in SWTOR during my entire gameplay. What I've seen were lags, speed buffs, lolsmasher rapists etc...

I don't think ppl are hacking that much.

Some cheats produce lag on purpose (e.g. speed hack), or as a side effect (e.g. external hardware with macros for automatic key sequences). Not saying that lag spikes are always produced by cheats, but there surely is a connection.

For example: The other day I was in a WZ and there was this marauder. Every time he engaged me I was first stuck in a lag and then dead. No lag when fighting the rest of his team.
Or the toons that appear on the opposite side of the map after a lag spike that glued everybody else in place.

If you want to identify cheats, have a closer look at what other players do when it comes to lag spikes in WZs.
