Scripts in PVP

This is a heavily edited and sanitized quote from a conversation I had with a friend. I hope no one is offended by it and I surely hope the devs have a response to this. I am frankly shocked that this type of thing can even work in an MMO and it does absolutely call into question the rateing of every single team and player in this game. It also brings up the question of why even have season 1 of rateds start when this kind of thing is possible.
EDIT:These are pixel reading 3rd party scritps. NOT Macros, Not Bots.

Hey man. Just an FYI. I deleted ALL of my toons and unsubscribed about a week ago. Sorry. I went as far as I could with that game and it's time for me to move on. I will say that in the end, I came to realize how much automation is being used at the high end of the PvP game.
I wrote a script for my toon that could execute the best attack all the time, even look at my procs and manage
resources. All I really had to do was position myself well and the script did the rest. It tore people apart. I had a pocket healer one voidstart and hit 600k by just using my mouse/movement keys. I couldn't solo everyone, but I rarely lost a 1v1.
I wrote a smart heal for my Sage healer and started hitting even higher heals per second too.
Anyhow, after doing this, It became obvious that a lot of other players are doing the same. Little things give it away, but once you're using these scripts, you start to notice when other people are too.I played the game for the first year with the barest of automation. Just an autohotkey macro to bind my self target modifier. Clearly, I was naive to not realize so many other people were going to go a lot farther

My original post on this topic since it was deleted.

It has come to my attention that some pvp'ers are using the program MacroGoblin to pvp with and not just any pvp'ers but ones that are said to be top tier as rumors go. This is something that shouldn't be happening and is just as bad as hacking the game when it comes to pvp.

Xerain if you post this in the forums ill be your best friend. Hey man. Just an FYI. I deleted ALL of my toons and unsubscribed about a week ago. I deleted about 10-15 million credits too. Sorry. I went as far as I could with that game and it's time for me to move on. I will say that in the end, I came to realize how much automation is being used at the high end of the PvP game. I wrote a macrogoblin script for my Shadow that could execute the best attack all the time, even look at my procs and manage resources. All I really had to do was position myself well and the script did the rest. It raped people. I had a pocket healer one voidstart and hit 600k by just using my mouse/movement keys. I couldn't solo everyone, but I rarely lost a 1v1.I wrote a smart heal for my Sage healer and started hitting even higher heals per second too, although, sage still required a lot more thinking even with the automation.Anyhow, after doing this, It became obvious that a lot of other players are doing the same.

Nice paraphrase.

Now I'm really wondering who does this in Prophecy of the Five. So many self-proclaimed "Elites" there.

They deleted the last post really?

Ridiculous.

Bioware really wants this to be a hush hush topic, I don't think they can get a grip on it just like they can't get a grip on hacking and exploiting.

I fully support this thread and hope to god Bioware can give us feed back so we can be enlighten how they will handle it.

Please Please Please read the op of this thread before trolling. If you care anything about having an actual rated warzone scene at all in this game this must be addressed.

This, and other exploits, are definitely prevalent on Pot5 even in regular WZs.
