One button one push seems like saying rekeybinding is fine.

Anet's policy:https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/352/policy-third-party-programs-multi-boxing-macros#latest

In short:"MacrosGuild Wars 2 players are permitted to use macros as long as the macros are programmed with a one-to-one function protocol. This means the following:

  1. If you program a macro, it must require one keystroke per action. You may not program a single key to perform multiple functions. For example, if you Press A and it results in the casting of a single skill, you're ok. If you Press A and it casts multiple spells, you're not ok.
  2. You cannot program a macro to perform the same or multiple actions on more than one account at a time.
  3. You cannot program an "auto-clicker" macro that, for instance, opens chests while you play elsewhere, or that opens a quantity of chests with a single click.
  4. NOTE: We make an exception for macros used for music composition or musical performances. As long as a player employs such a macro solely for the performance of in-game music, we do not place restrictions on its use."

Hello,

As stated in that thread, Macros in the sense of "I click one button, and my whole attack rotation is automatically cast" are forbidden.

Now, a french famous stateman, Richelieu, had those words of wisdom :

To make a rule, and not have it executed, is an endorsement of what one wanted to forbid.

As Armand Jean du Plessis de Richelieu is not an ANet's affiliate, use that last quote cautiously.

@ArmageddonAsh.6430 said:The problem is NOTHING will ever be done about it. Look at the times where players have shown proof of people hacking and cheating and its the person that SHOWS it that gets into trouble...

Speaking from personal experiences. This guy is completely correct. You get punished, while the cheater laughs and continues to cheat. It's awesome how that works right?

You can be punished for "False Reporting" if they don't find anything on the offender.

I got a warning for reporting Sialoquent (A guy everyone and their mother knew that was a speed hacker and even publicly admited it), while he still ran rampant for 6 months until he was finally banned. After that I never bothered reporting cheaters or exploiters even again.

Interesting I thought it was illegal for key/macro scripts for even music.

Yeah how Anet have shown what they think of cheaters and hackers - which seems to be "out of sight, out of mind" i havent bothered, you WILL still people hacking, cheating and such but its pointless reporting them because nothing has happened in the past, nothing has happened now. Maybe if they tried to introduce a Anti-hacking application that has to run alongside the game to make sure people cant use hacking applications and such then it wouldnt be so bad. Its just very little effort on their side to show they actually care and want rid of them.

Nope I posted a youtube video, of the individual in the act. He was clearly speed and teleport script hacking in Ranked PvP.

ANet gave me a warning that time.

@Strider Pj.2193 said:I do not have the quote but McKenna has noted that one button to one action (i.e. A multi button mouse) is fine.

BUT only one button to one action/skill. As soon as it is one button push to more than one skill, it is against the TOS.

make a macro to perform a macro xD, macroception

btw macro with just one function is key binding, macro itself means several tasks..... the ToS is not rigth IMO, and there no way to control it..

Well, making a video and sending it directly at exploits@arena.net is encouraged and will not result in anything negative for you. Uploading the video to youtube or another platform and naming and shaming the person in public though is against the ToS and will be punished. The same goes for calling out names on the forum, Reddit or elsewhere.

In a sense ANet is the only one who can judge these cases. If you play judge and take some petty revenge by shaming people in public you have to bear the consequences.

But I didn't play judge. I allowed for others to play judge. By informing them of my match in Ranked PvP. I didn't even have my mic on in this youtube video.

That's not what "false reporting" is, not even close. You cannot get punished for reporting someone you suspect of botting.

False reporting is when you deliberately grief someone by reporting them and encouraging others to do so.


If you suspect macros or script use or any sort of "botting", then report. If you think you have more evidence than ANet is unlikely to see without your help, file a support ticket. And then, move on. ANet might act in a visible way (suspending the account) or invisibly (send them a warning and give them dishonor). They might choose to do nothing immediately and observe, trying to find other people using the same hax. Or they might see it's not someone using a macro, it's just someone who is a lot faster executing rotations than you expect.
