Ok, I may need you to get out the crayons and explain what his teammates were doing. I rewatched this twice now and can not see any "teleportation" going on.

I focused my eyes on every team mate and kept rewinding it and I still don't see any teleportation.
You can always ask ashido. He's notorious for using it.

Oh I saw it, that is super shady
Lag7 basically makes you lag out the game where you can’t use any globals and everyone around you runs in place for a period of time but when your lag ends if you are not ccd the Game catches back up to you if you get ccd during you dc

Ahh there it is. Couldn't see it on my phone. Had to watch it again on a big screen.

It amazes me how hard people work at cheating a system instead of just beating it. That applies to everything in life.
Worst part is that the streamer obviously knew they were about to do it. He is just as culpable in my opinion.

And blizz wonders why rated participation isn't higher...

It does seem every time you turn around there is some form of cheating going on in rbgs. Kickbotting, fly hacking, lag 7.. Seems like a never ending list.

I wouldn't know though since I am a 1500 scrub. Just going by hearsay

Same here on the hearsay. But vids like this one sure as hell don't make me pine to get into it either. I guess I just don't get the mindset of needing to cheat in a game, what's the point.
I watched it last night but didn't comment till now, I honestly would send/email that to hacks@blizzard.com and give them like a huge detailed description, names, etc about it and see if something can be done

As I've said before they should have like a worker there that occasionally monitors the high-end bracket RBG's like in spectator view or something lol
The good thing is is there seems to be way less cheating, scripting, etc going on this expansion than last. This forum was filled with that in WoD

like fly hacks were a huge problem but i haven't seen a thread about that in all of Legion

Actually I didn't know he was about to do it, I was looking to see who was going GM as usually a DH goes there with a mistweaver. Ashido will be banned don't worry ladies and gents. Blizzard will take appropriate actions against the botters and lag7 players. Report/submit this video and blizz will see it in their logs. Good work on the catch Kasper. Cheers

you taking your eyes off the path towards the objective to look and "see" whos going to mines can be easily solved by looking at the minimap....you say a dh and a mw "usually" go down there?...easy.....a purple dot and a lime green dot will be moving towards the mines.....not sure who they are?,....move your cursor over the dots and their names will appear....see,no more taking your eyes off whats in front of you at apparently "just (after) the right moment" to avoid any video implications of a teammate(s) doing naughty things......

Kathorist said "ask ashido"....... he/she didnt say...... "that was ashido"

why would you say that ashido will be banned (in reference to this video) as myself and im sure others cannot make out the names either in the nameplates or in mr target or similar addon thats visible left side?

After the right moment? more like the right second lol. It just happened too quickly for that to be coincidence imo.
I just watched it again....had to zoom in on the actual video but I can make names out...I was hasty in my original thought of not being able to see names,however I still cannot see the name ashido anywhere..

the vid is named ashido so I suppose one of those toons is known as ashido

still doesnt negate the suspicious camera panning in a direction that would not implicate anyone..and resulting damage control to the post that brought attention to this.

My thoughts exactly....
quite a few times Ive been to lm while the majority or the opposing team was either bs or stables and suddenly.....like mere seconds after I turn flag I got like 6-7 enemy on top of me (with no rogue either)

I do find it odd that these programs work as well as they do....considering I get disconnected from the server at the most inopportune times if I (for example) use a glider,land, then immediately try to mount....I get disconnected every time.
So what did lags 1-6 do? I missed those edumacational posts.

Not surprising. If you can't win on your own and need to cheat, the "best" way to do that is to get rid of the gnomes since they are the greatest obstacle (not biggest, greatest) in the way of you and "glory". Hole lot of people would agree ;)
