    Here is a name and shame free video. If this gets removed its a blatant act of censorship.

    NOTE: This video contains NO NAMES and NO DESCRIPTION of the exploit or how to do it. It just shows visually what is happening.




    This is what it's like to PvP right now. This is the quality of our game.

    SHAME!
    SHAME!

    Damn... now I understand and fully support the anger! I've been in pve all afternoon, leveling a lowbie. That's horrifying.
    May all beings have happiness
    May they be free from suffering
    May they find the joy that has never known suffering
    May they be free from attachment and hatred

    Naming and shaming has legal issues attached to it, I have never heard of a gaming company or any company doing that. It's just not going to happen.

    Runescape actually made a zone where an npc (was like a Puritan witch hunter kind of guy) would call out character names of bots as they were banned. Was pretty funny.

    Bots are not people.

    People use bots bruh, so it falls under the same category...

    I say we have a purge in-game against the cheaters, before they get permanently banned. Let us merk them a bit, and get our AP up on their characters. It's only fair, considering some of them used their cheating to get AP from us.

    Come out, come out, cheaters! We just wanna talk!

    Not on pc, so I only have to deal with the annoying lag, but I LOVE to see all the people that were fighting with other forum members, keeping ZOS` side, defending them as hard as they can, and sometimes even being rude, now all angry. :trollface:

    But lets still not forget, the forum managers have nothing to do with this in the end.

    This kind of intentional exploitation and cheating is disgusting. This is the same behavior that ruined diablo on console platforms, such a shame to see players going out of their way to ruin a game.
    Well to be fair their not trying to ruin the game well not all of them some are just trying to get @ZOS to fox their dam game.Can you blame them for that?

    Cheaters always say this. And guess what, it's a lie.
    Its only a lie if ZOS continue to not fix their dam game.Their been exploit that only affects PVP am sure if this also didn't affect PVE most of you wouldn't even care.That's why some are doing this to get on leaders boards for PVE to force a fix.

    ROTFLMAO - I'm sorry, but that's just bs. If someone is telling you that is the reason they are exploiting the game and you believe it, then I have some property I would like to sell you down in the Florida everglades :)

    Ashtaris does that property come with evidence destroying garbage eating gators/argonians?

    If Zenicats does nothing about this. Then MEOAR people will use it. Tutorials on how to use it will come out. Feedback will be sent to the makers of CE on how to make it better. The old bot farmers will be back running VIPER and CE. ZOS take note. or is it take POTE?

    Because of course people downloading a third party piece of software and using that piece of software that has nothing to do with Zenimax is all Zenimax's fault, isn't it?

    Get a grip, some of you. ZOS definitely have their faults, but this isn't one of them. Stop shifting blame off of the cheaters.

    ZOS could absolutely police the game more. Definitely. But how about putting the blame where it belongs? Which is solely on those who downloaded this software and chose to use it.

    It is their fault, with a proper client-server architecture the game could not be cheated with a client-side program. So there are still things done client-side, which belong on the server - and this opens the game up for hacks like this. Unfortunately this does not look like an issue, which ZOS could solve quickly - they can use the ban hammer, but a fix to the game to make this impossible is rather work intensive - removing hacks and do proper programming is by far more difficult then implementing hacks. And as it seems these hack are there to get performance up - at the cost of security and possibly even privacy.

    ZoS could try to fight fire with fire, send their gamemasters in there with Invincible characters with 1 shot killing abilities, I will love to watch the cheaters cry as they realize their attacks do nothing to them.

    You guys gotta remember, its not just the CE cheats that result in in-game advantages. Keyboard scripting for auto-dps has always been an issue that has never been addressed, I know people who still do that today. So many people who shouted down the complaints about the banker exploit are now hopping on the bandwagon trying to force change...

    ...but you guys do remember this is the lot that posted their exemption to TOS because someone has a twitch channel.

    My opinion, is ban anyone permanently who knowingly exploits an in game bug, be it with CE, be it with the banker (they did track how many times the same writ was used), be it with jumping through walls - whatever. I look at the forums today and I see nothing but a community in uproar about how this game has sunken so far - well we are the ones that let it get there by not forcing ZOS to bring the ban hammer sooner and in doing so encouraging exploiting ***.

    *EDIT*
    JUST LIKE IN EVERY OTHER GAME THAT SHARES THIS GENRE

    Umm no . I can name people that lost forum privileges over that last 2 years trying to get the game masters attention , but I won't . Players in PvP have been fighting to fix these exploits since closed beta .

    And go back to those threads and you'll notice us far from united in our response to exploits. Remember way back to % dmg increases making Acid Spray an AOE 1 shot? Or even just a month ago the banker exploit, the amount of people who used it, in those threads shouting down the people who were against it. But if you have an example of an exploit, bug, or cheat that was picked up by the community and pushed down ZOS's throat so they had to take action due to the overwhelming insistence of it, i'll eat my words
