Quoted for truth. I haven't seen any hacks since 1.2 and I've been very pleased with that. What hacks are you seeing?

After reading further I see you're talking about a CC immunity 'hack' which I've always attributed as a bugged resolve bar. Bioware should make a visual distinction with the resolve bar if the person is immune (turn it red or blue or green or something) so that it stands out and we could tell the people who were cheating from bugs with the game.

Yea, lately I have been seeing more people cheating. It wasn't that bad a couple of months ago but now I see, in every hutball, one or two people using a speed hack. They have the ball and you see them running from center to goal line at the same speed as everyone else running with him. Sorry, but force speed doesn't last that long and last time I checked, non force users didn't even have force speed. I don't play those classes so don't quote me on it but I'm sure they don't have it. Either way, for them to run from center, around and up and all the way to goal line at normal speed like everyone else...it's cheating. If you go to youtube and do a search you'll even see video of people cheating after 1.2 with the speedhack.

Last night I had one guy that I had down to like 10% health and all of a sudden he poped up to 100 percent health, and no, the warzone wasn't finished yet. That was the first time I experienced that cheat.

I read alot about reporting hackers that are on enemy teams, but I never see anyone say they reported someone on their own team. Does anyone do this or are only enemy players getting reported? I must be bad at spotting these hackers as I hardly ever notice these hacks. Only hack I've ever witnessed is the speed hack and that was before 1.2. So what I want to know is whats REALLY going on?

I have seen the anti - CC hack as has a guildmate. He kept trying to CC this level 36 Guardian and nothing would happen. And he noticed that his Resolve Bar would never budge.

In Hutt Ball I have seen the lag hack / speed boost hack.

You typically will see the hacks on enemies faster or more readily than your own team since you don't often concentrate on them. Like in Call of Duty, when the opposing team says so and so is a wall hacker, you won't know till you follow them and them shoot someone coming around a corner with no UAV up nor them having made a shot to give them away.

You're absolutely right. I'm not sure if it's a hack, exploit, cheat, or a bugged resolve bar. All I'm certain of is they didn't show to have any resolve built up and my stun did nothing to them.

Most people on the forums will be in denial that people can hack. They refuse to believe it is so easy to cheat and wont accept that maybe even their guildies and friends are potentially hacking. It's one reason why a lot of hacks run rampart because people refuse to acknowledge they exist and blame people that see them for being incompetent or butt hurt.

But no, hacks do exist, like it or not. Speed hacks, Anti CC hacks, stealth level hacks, I think there is even a % based damage resistance hack I saw when searching google. These hacks exist, and the quicker people accept that and start reporting people instead of outright denying it, the quicker those people will be banned and the exploits the hacks take advantage of, patched.

I have noticed that none of my roots or slows seem to be working much these days. Not sure if it's a hack or lag but it's getting old.

I would like to add that running with the huttball is bugged. It seems to allow you to run normally until in combat. Atleast that what I have noticed while carrying the ball.
