Hackers in pvp

Freyr.1496Freyr.1496 Member ✭✭

It is sad to see that my favorite game, the one for which I paid to have fun, is today cause for immense disappointment, sadness and frustration.
In the past I reported the presence of hackers in WvW and today I see the same hackers in action in the pvp hancked and tournaments .... I know that have already been reported, but they are still there, humiliating us, mocking us, winning games by half of cheating without any respect for us that we play and act correctly.
But sad though that is to see that Arenanet voices, did nothing and do nothing to change that ...
In addition to living with lags, we are forced to endure the presence of these criminals turning our fun into a nightmare, while you NOTHING DOES!
Just look at YouTube to see that it is a chronic problem, for years, that it remains 'healthy' because nothing has been done to effectively end it.
How much longer are we going to have to put up with this?
Or maybe, it's better that you make it official, that it is allowed to use hack in the game, so that we at least have the condition to compete of equal to equal in that shame that has become the GW.
I am furious, I am disappointed, I am disappointed .... if still game is because I really like the game .... but until this is changing too ... and an hour, others will start to change too, even if it is for worse...
And you know one thing .... I already doubt if you really want to do anything to change the nonsense that is taking place there.
I do not speak English so I'm using google translator ... I hope he has managed to convey at least my displeasure to you all .... This is all a shame, a lack of respect with us that we pay to have a game ' clean 'for fun.
Maybe it's best to have 'free' players ... who have no commitment with anything and much less with GW .... after all they have access to the legendary items of the game, whether winning, who knows how or with gold that win there too .... in pvp, in wvw ...
Yeah ... I think those are the players you really want to have at GW.

  • Unfortunately both pvp and WvW are full of bots and hackers. This is ridiculous! It does not have 1 day that does not report on average 15 players with bots and hackers. Arena.net needs to automate this ban ... it's becoming impossible to play honestly in competitive modes.

    ...lol

    sure. Sure you do, you report them from what? Bronze?

    mhm, ok, sure, whatever you say, no after you, I insist, no really, please, be my guest,

    Reportreportreport move on. As players who witness such terrible acts we seek justice against these hackerous hackers, but in reality Anet needs evidence these players are using third-party mechanics for malicious intent. Screenshots given to them is very nice.

  • Realy Arena.net? Realy???
    We need your positioning on this barbarity... It is impossible to play any match in pvp/WvW. We do not need to check with prints, just any of you enter a match in pvp and you will see.
    :/ :s :'(
    WE NEED AN URGENT POSITIONING

    Sometimes I get reported for winning a trade on sword weaver. I don't know if I should be happy for the report system not working or be sad about the spec.

  • I am a casual PvP player, and being out of the situation, I believe this will take away both veteran players and prevent new players from entering. It is a shame that a company of this size is not paying attention to such a serious problem. I really hope i can buy the Path of Fire with no worries about all this things... Thinking twice now. My condolences to PvP players.

  • For the Arena.net team that is having difficulty knowing where the hackers / bots are coming from ... search on google: GW2MINION, GW2 PvP Bot - Assist GW2Minion ... Well, there is a simple google search for the proof that they exist. I would like Arena.net to really give a due answer to the case.

  • Now I was in the fight against a Thief and during the fight it was only me and him (the 4 other rivals were in other points) and The thief used 3 times the skill: Sword of Justice ... here comes the question: How Dude did that ??? Of course, this must happen because he is a thief / guardian ... just like GW Original who had 2 professions

  • If they don't even ban (or take ages to) hackers and exploiters when the proof is so clear, what can we expect from Arena Net? Are they telling us "we don't care, go do whatever you want!"? Because that's honestly how it feels

    I did not understand the bronze ... even because I'm silver just so you know. Spoken one of those who support these bots / hackers

  • the last time anet banned someone for hacking was in may 2015. then their ESL dream bubble burst and since then they don't give a kitten about pvp/wvw anymore.

    also this: https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/4kkuf3/something_needs_to_be_done_about_the_current/

    the guy admitted to cheating/hack for months, even made money with it and Anet did nothing.

    So this is where all these 8000 damage people come from xD! LOL , I knew! At least you don't have to worry if you suck in PvP and WvW since you never know if you're playing with a real player, a hacker or a bot ;p

    Choya is love, Choya is life!

    i think i am playing another game than you guys - there are very few hackers that i have encountered in gw2. i saw more hackers in blackdesert 1. week than in gw2 all the time ( not talking about bots, i saw armies of them after gw2 release in pve maps farming and spamming gold sellers)
    soo either i am super lucky to not run into them or their hacks dont safe them.
    so by all mean ban all hackers, i just dont think there are that many as some make it sound to be..

    i have been accused by my opponents several times in whisper, so i guess also reported for hacking. but i am certain i dont use any hacks. i think there are alot of false reports for hacking and therefor an automated ban system might not be that good. i further dont know if anet legally does need evidence for violating their rules to ban you at least when talking permanent bans, so that might be another problem.

    I did a little now (less than 20min) match in which the opponent was on the ground (again the guy and I alone) I of Deadeye shooting without stopping at him and he who was with the hp in downed the guy simply went healing until he arrived to 80%. I needed to finalize the guy so he did not get up ... someone downed gets take damage if he heals alone and get up? I do not think so unfortunately that's what happens. Who plays PVP and analyzes can identify many hackers, bots there. That's the reality. Arena.net has how to verify this, just does not do it if you do not want to.

    oh i do identify hackers, but stuff like that doesnt happen to me. i did rez people out of permastealth while people were attacking without ever poping out of stealth myelf.. but well you said the others were not there so i only have your word on it, dont know if you might just have overlooked someone or if you really encountered a hacker, cause you get interrupted channeling your rez when attacked and only can heal up while that if you casted abilities before that still have effect like guard symbol in downed, ranger pet, thrown elixir R? (didnt play engi for a while not sure wich elixir it was).
    to me there is nearly never a situation that i dont understand how my opponents did behave, when there are new balance patches it does happen that i am like "what was that?" but then i find the answer in the patch notes.

  • I canal, I just play with many, thieves using Guardian skill, and engineers giving hit kill. Characters falling on down and teleporting. There is no way to play cheating. Guild Wars 2 game from the start and I know when a character and hack. I do not bother to lose anymore, always lose by having cheating in the game this I can not stand. I ask the customer and customer of Arena NET to do what is necessary for this to end.

    As you said yourself, you must be one of those very lucky guys who play and do not have the misfortune to find hackers in the game. It's ... you sure are a lucky guy .... But as others are not as fortunate as you and have already encountered and encountered these criminals, which is what they are, and it is something that occurs to the over the years with videos on the internet and reports to own Arena net, I've done it myself a few times, so yes, you have to do something to stop this clown from continuing and if necessary to automate actions to curb this crime ... Then, those that since I do not have to fear an automated means of action against the hackers, or that they are lucky like you, we hope that Arenanet does the part of it of truth and put an end to that shame.

    Well, how do you identify or not who is bot or hacker I do not know. I just know that you have it in gw2 and the site I've been through is there to show. If you want other links I can also find on google and go ... because it is very simple to find these programs on the internet. The reality is this, with or without patch or anything else there is bots and hackers yes, this is clear as mineral water.

  • Rufo.3716Rufo.3716 Member ✭✭✭

    Most of the hacks aren't always that obvious. Combine that with people who hide it well and it makes it very hard. But yes, Anet needs to crack down on the bots/hackers or they won't have any other players in the game. I've basically given up on ranked PvP and WvW because of it. At least in unranked hackers are few and far between.

    So... in a nutshell... Arenanet defends cheaters and punishes those who point out the cheaters. It's a bit more complex than that as to why this is happening, but it is unfortunately true. If you are interested in contributing documentation of players who cheat in competitive modes, contact me via this forum, privately.

    sadly offender protection is always a high priority with those companies or in general to avoid scandals. its way easier to silence and ban those who dare to speak up, then those who actually did the deed. cause they are obviously easy to identify and the genuine root of the problem since they dare to shine the light on it.

  • Looking at the posts, I clearly realize that some here aims to challenge facts that are clear, obvious and seen by many, including reports to Arenanet itself, not to mention the internet itself with vast material ...
    Yes, you are here solely and exclusively to generate controversy and covertly reverse a fact into a lie.
    In one of the posts it is said that 'laughed a lot'... but here nobody is telling jokes. And since you're dealing so lightly with such a serious matter, it seems clear to me that you're only aiming to upset.
    In fact, someone comes here in the futile attempt to deny a FACT that is aware and conscious
    of who participates in the events and of ARENANET itself, it seems to me only an act of childishness or despair to hide their own actions ...
    I dispense with your comments and politely ask you not to participate in this discussion, since your interest is not to add but to denigrate those who seek and find a solution to a chronic problem in the game.

    Good man, if you think I'm bad, that's your problem. I do not need to prove anything to players like you. Just like me, several others report as many bots / hackers as I do. If you're bothered about it just get out. And another, if you play because here we are charging Arena.net what is important, because you are probably one of those who support and use a Free account to stay here talking nothing with anything.

  • Nothing has to be shown to you or anyone else here ... what has to be shown is for Arenanet which is in my understanding the one responsible for maintaining a quality game and free from hacks and hackers ....
    I will make it very clear to those who come here to post: give up trying to transform the facts that this post addresses, known to Arenanet itself, in lies, because this intention for me means that you are part of exactly those I accuse. So, please, go find something useful to do instead of come here to disturb who takes this criminal situation seriously.
    Your efforts to want to denigrate this post is a fragile attempt by those who are afraid of being exposed ... you are wasting their time.

    Honestly, I’m not too confident in this community’s ability to recognize hackers. I mean, I wish I had a dollar for every time someone called me a hacker, because apparently thief teleports/shadowsteos are hacks and not core profession mechanics.

  • saerni.2584saerni.2584 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Hacks are one thing.

    Lag, not understanding enemy mechanics and bugs are more likely.

    Like, getting pushed or pulled into a wall isn’t a hack. Enemy lagging out or you lagging out is more likely than a ddos attack. Etc.

  • It seems that it is difficult to make yourself understood these days ... if you look at the original post, you will see that at no time was mentioned classes, professions or whatever ...
    Hackers , they are a fact of general knowledge, and Arenanet herself knows this. Contrary opinions only show naivety, lack of observation, incompetence, or attempt to conceal a truth.
    The FACT holds within itself an immutable truth or it would not be a FACT. It is FACT that Arenanet knows of their existence, since in the past already expelled 1 ...
    The problem that arises here is that since then nothing else has been done of FACT to prevent such actions from repeating themselves.
    Those who are bothered with my post, who knows why? and try to turn it into a situation of improbability, ignorance, inability ... are wasting their time.

    I've met quite few of these hackers recently in matches and I'm getting sick and tired of them. A few of them have a cheat that make most of their skill effects turn yellow and if they walk anywhere near you they are able to load you with all the condis in the game and you die in 1.25 secs. Another must be an Engi cheat as they turn yellow too which enables them to do 6x their base skill damage (3.5 -5K per hit) while CC'ing you at the same time. Then you have the unkillable guard that literally can just walk in a circle/or not move at all on cap and tank whatever damage you can dish out. Of course don't forget the invisibility cheat of being sniped from someswhere you can't access on the map....oh actually wait a minute......those are the new elite specs. Sorry.
