Ran into a hacker.

Posts: 10
This person used some hacking device that instantly ended my turn for me while he summoned constant Core Hounds in a normal game. I have found no way to report a player ingame so i thought i might aswell try my luck here to hopefully get this player banned from Hearthstone.

So you know, it's against forum policy to call out players by name. To report hackers, see the following thread:

In all fairness, I saw a bug report in the forums where someone actually video-taped someone doing this. So it's actually possible that such a hack exists. I've personally never encountered it however. But it seems far beyond just a glitch, the other person was playing quite smoothly, as if they were used to it. But yeah, the player got no turns, the "hacker" (if it was a hacker) would instantly end his turn and it would immediately start his turn again, and he would play the cards as fast as the AI does. You would think it if was a bug that they would be confused and have a delay in between turns.

Really no idea what how would such hackers get any sense of achievement or satisfaction?
If this is a hack pretty sure the hacker would lose whatever he had won soon.

There's a link to the video here. If you look at how fast the guy is playing, it's very suspicious.

I have to admit, I completely forgot about this until about 5 minutes ago, but I've actually been on the opposite side of this once before. Basically, I was playing against an opponent where they spent one turn doing absolute nothing, and then after that, their turns would instantly end. I found this odd because normally when an opponent afk's, there's at least a fuse that appears and gives them 10 seconds or so to play. At the time, I just assumed they had hard dc'd and that's why there wasn't even a fuse, but based on the video I linked a few up, maybe they actually were still there.

I have absolutely ZERO clue what would have procced it in game; as far as I can remember, nothing special had happened in the game.

Now that you mention it I had a game last night where the guy just sat there. I thought he was just griefing or something but maybe it wasn't letting him play his cards.

I've had this happen once to my opponent; the game just completely skipped one of his turns.

No idea what caused it, nor can I recall what I was doing immediately before it happened.
