Ferals and warping/teleporting/glitching

Honestly I see this a lot and I'm at a loss what to do. For those who don't know it's when ferals start "blinking" 10 yards or so every second, like literally teleporting from spot to spot without appearing to cover the distance in a legitimate way.

I've seen some hackers in my time and it's fairly obvious, but with ferals it's not easy to say because no other class appears to do this as often. But it's unfair of course as they become so hard to target and you don't even know which direction they are moving towards.

I just played a game against a feral who moved in this manner. I wanted to report him but upon armorying him it became fairly obvious he is a casual player in ruthless gear who is simply not fantastic at pvp. In short it is unlikely that he cares enough about PvP to be intentionally glitching. Therefore I think more often than not it is a bug, but your input is welcome...

I wonder if any steps are taken in 5.0 to fix this.

He is not hacking. Feral's run speed can make them appear like they are hacking/glitching from your POV due to latency issues from your end or their end.

I've seen the legit version plenty of times, the hack one is just !@#$%^- obvious as they're seemingly 20 feet away from you at all times and still hitting you.

true, but has anyone seen this glitching with mounted speed or speed buff (on other classes)? i'd wager no.

If they're not simply running in a straight line, yes. Not every time, but I do see it.

Most of the time if someone mounts up, they're trying to get from point A to point B as fast as possible, not get behind you while you in turn are trying to get behind them or maintain front facing. That means their direction is probably not changing all that much, and the positional prediction is reasonably accurate.

I see people saying it's the run speed combined with lagg or the run speed combined with the fast strafing back and forth.

So tell me why these players only start to "teleport" for lack of a better term when you engage them in combat, because I see ferals and rogues running around outside SW all the time making crazy fast strafing movements and they arent teleporting around then. only when they start to duel somebody.

its obv everyone knows its being done just like duping vials and crimson deathchargers, the ppl that defend it or exuse it as anything but what it is, are in denial or do it themselves and dont want to lose the advantage

not suggesting anyone try it but you can youtube lag macros ect and find a gazzillion was to do what the op discribes

btw I was defending bs and watched a druid ride his mount up the flat wall between lm and bs litterally straight up the frigging wall I said in /bg that dude is hacking and everyone not at bs laughed it off and said it was prob lag

my favorite is when a DK is able to jump back, per the hunter skill.

stealth + dash + pounce = feral moves so fast it starts to bend time-space continuum thus appearing to be everywhere while being nowhere
