First time seeing a legitimate hacker

Never seen someone hack before, but tonight i did. This guy didn't even try to hide it. On kylo, he would teleport from mid to our home node over n over. Decapping/capping. Then he would vanish on the node, like stealth, but u couldn't hit/reveal him but he would still keep the node contested.

Anyone seen this before?

Also, this is the first time i actually went to report someone and noticed there is no "cheating" option so i selected "scamming" (closest option lol).

The character played like a bot too. When you could actually hit him, hed barely do anything back. Like his hacks had cooldowns.

    Rare occurrences yes. This is position hacking (There are some examples on youtube). You don't normally see this, as Anet actually takes some effort to ban them in these cases
    .
    Usually report for botting, as it is the closest description.

    If u Google there are quite a few hacks available for gw2 2 for any losers who feel the need to hack to feel like their good players lol. Ranges from position hacks, perma swiftness, perma evade frames so etc etc. I've fought a ranger in arena that stood in front of me moving side to side as I fed him great sword hits to his face over and over while his hp didn't move. I asked him how he said he was evading. he was not dodging or using weapon evade frames or stone signet as I watched while downed him fight three other people and after literally half a minute or so the players where typing kitten above their heads and miraculously he all the sudden was burst down as if he was suddenly able to take damage lmao.

    Well I have fought with an invul downed state and self ressing player in wvw and pvp. This ia anets fault. They should ve taken good measures vs hackers and be vigilant about it. Yet I have seen several cheating players keep playing for a long time.

  • I saw something very similar in ffa arena, this one shot warrior would jump in spam his burst hit the skill for 0 damage and port back up when in danger. Why is this even a thing?

    Cuz programmers developed these stupid hack and then some people are pathetic enough to use them.
