Is it possible to "cheat?"

Paladin
Just got done with a Random BG and we won. But while I was near top of the charts (I know, randoms don't take skill) there was another Ret Paladin that beat me...except the Paladin had !@#$ gear and 0 heals. And not only did this Paladin beat me in total damage (I was around 7.5+million) with around 10million, they beat everyone, and had the most killing blows at 15 (I had 12)

NO. WAY. They even have holy prism, meaning that there would have been at least ONE heal if it was casted in the BG.

It's just impossible to me.
Which BG? That other Paladin might be running into packs of players, using HotR/DS and getting heals or running away when low on HP.

Also, it's a random BG. Who cares? You won. That's the main point.
outplayed imo
I toped the damage chart 1 time by beating on a resto shaman behind a building. at 1st i was trying to kill him, then i got tierd of trying and started to go away, couldnt get past his heals.
then he actualy atacked back as i was walking away as if he wanted me to stay, so i came back, /lagh at him, he /bow to me, and i continued to just dps, and he just healed. was kind of funny, but we did that the whole bg just playin around and my damage was way higher than any one elses at the end and his healing was the highest.

we wernt trying to cheat, but it was prety cool.
Skill > gear all day brochacho

Oh we won, and it was a good solid win - but to have NO heals and be over 10million damage with that gear. I'm not the best Paladin - but no way.

Totally possible in that scenario - and if he didn't have the highest kill count, I would have assumed as such. But that doesn't add up at all.
also earlyer today i did a quick av, got in late, ran up north right as they decided to do dreck, I tanked him, and at the end, i was #2 on damage, and that was all i did, tank drek.
I was also top 5 on healing lol
Eye of the Storm was the BG. Being top in damg/kills in a BG isn't impossible, especially when I have a good team/healer. This was just - not normal. Though I can't say I ever crossed paths with this other player.
I've never seen a "damage cheat" of any sorts, the only cheats i see regularly are wall hacks to do things like CLIMB up to lumbermill from the road down below, that and automatic silence/interrupt hacks, those are freaking annoying when someone is glued to you and cheat interrupting, even a 0.1sec juke isn't enough it's literally THAT FAST.
Eye of the storm, he was probably fighting middle the whole game and had a pocket healer.

Aye, sounds very plausible. Pocket healer and AoE damage in mid or a tower that was constantly in dispute.
