Seriously im going to quit this game if this garbage is not fixed.

How many years has it been since people have been abusing this in PvP ? Too long. I am a paying Customer, ive been playing this game for years upon years.

Why do you still allow this to happen ? Every single other game thats server based has set latency limiter, even Xbox Live.

You should disconnect if your latency goes soo high that you teleport around the map like a Mage with no cooldown on Blink.

At this point im pretty much giving you money, to not enforce the rules and terms you guys set. Im paying you to be cheated out of enjoyment.

Have you reported those players you feel are cheating? That is the only way for Blizzard to see what's going on.

"Lag hacking" - the #1 excuse for losing since 1998.

The one lag hack I am aware of is the one using a certain code multi-lined macro and spamming it over and over. I won't say the code or how many lines because then people will be trying it to see if it works.

All i am going to say is it works because it unsyncs your toon from the server.

If you see a player blinking around who should not have a blink, chances are good they are doing this and should be reported. "Like a dk that you can't target because he keeps blinking from place to place."

Blizzard does nothing about it because its "hard to prove". Ive recorded videos, sent them in.

Where are you sending these videos?

You need to right click the player, report for cheating, then put a description of what they are doing. This is not something that is hard to prove at all since it is a line they enter in chat over and over and over also saved in macros. Blizzard has logs of this and it is not hard to prove at all.

Blizzard relies on what they can prove, not what players claim. Even if you're honest, how can they tell by video that someone didn't fake this by re-editing or using a demo or illegal server to frame someone?


People dont magically go from perfect connection to terrible connection right when theyre near death or in a troubling situation that will cause a loss.


You sure about that? I know on my old computer, lag would go through the roof if I were in a particularly thick PvP battle or raid fight. Hell, it was a while before I could even stand to enter Dalaran.


Theres people on my server who blatantly hack, and use latency hacking as well, brag about it too. They been doing it since Burning Crusade, received multiple reports against them, and still nothing has been done.


Why do you trust them that nothing has been done? They have everything to gain by lying to you, and as has already been stated, this isn't the simplest thing in the world to prove.


Apparently their money is better than mine since Blizzard allows things like this to continuously go on.


Apparently, you'd have Blizzard take you at your word when it comes to banning people, and your desire for this to come to an end makes the solution manifest instantly, cheaply, and with no false positives.

Don't you already have another thread off a different toon about the same topic.

Same thing I said in that thread. Sounds like jealousy. You upset he is getting away with something you cannot do or are unsure of how to do?

Report them, move on.

The same topic doesn't make it the same person. More then one individual can come across someone who may be exploiting.

Suggesting that because someone do not like others to get away with cheating doesn't mean that they are jealous that they cannot do so themselves. That is ridiculous reasoning.

The only point where I will agree is if you come across someone that you believe to be cheating/exploiting please use the right click report feature to report it.
