Siege Exploit - bug

"NEW" siege exploit is increasing the radius of siege damage by 10 fold at least. I'm not great at posting images on forums so here's my best attempt:

The siege used in this appeared to be a stone treb, it was definitely "stone" damage, but unfortunately I was unable to die to it in order to see a username of the offender.
However this is going on right now in trueflame at roebeck & it's a DC person doing it.

    Sorry impossible to see what is going on in your picture. Maybe someone else will have better luck, I am on my phone so that could be it.

    Look for the big red aoe on the ground. Notice it's even larger than the templar ground circle thing?

    Can't see the screenshot, but remember that Scattershot catapults have a very large AoE radius.

    Honestly I'm unfamiliar with that. I can't say in the 2+ years I've been playing that I remember ever using or seeing anyone use a scattershot catapult. I can however say that this was ridiculously large to the point of being "too much".

    The picture is hard to make out . I hope you are right and it is being just a false alarm .

    If this is intended then my bad. As stated above, I've never seen siege aoe this large before. Hopefully a dev or someone can clear this up as to whether the size is correct?

    Use a Scattershot catapult and see for yourself.

    I already dc'd & I've been up all night. I'll check it out when I wake up if someone hasn't already proven/dis-proven this thing.

    scattershot catapult has a huge area that it hits. it doesn't hit as hard as other siege but can be nearly impossible to move out of the way if you are in the middle

    It's a bit silly to post bug reports about something without really knowing how that something works.

    Sleep well and happy testing tomorrow!

    Way to jump to conclusions. Pretty typical of these threads...

    Next time you're under the impression something isnt right, report it within game, not on the forums.

    Also the "every dc is cheating" guy... Give your head a shake.

    Yeah, you got to see a scatter shot. Most people use the disease or for epos cause damage/heal debuff, but that only applies if you hit them. Really hard to MISS with scattershot, but the damage is toned down.

    Also OP, ZoS has some pretty tough anti "naming and shaming" rules. Best that you didn't get that the name and post it, they may have closed the thread. Just for future reference.

    Saying "everybody does it" does not make you any less of an exploiter.

    Scattershot can be fun. The area it hits is so large it is somewhat of a psychological effect to be hitting players who usually just move out of siege. It also applies a 20% debuff for other siege damage. So if I'm not getting hits with something else, switch to scattershot and see if I can get them to really start scrambling! :) And yeah, if it was scattershot that you were seeing, damage is quite low which is why you couldn't die to it!

    So many questions that can't be answered on forums . Seems like cheats and bugs are ramping up everywhere now .

    Agree, seems like ZOs is once again not doing anything about it, I think the cheating in this game if nothing is ever done will most likely be the reason I leave this game once and for all, sad really I enjoy this game and a huge fan, but I have a lot of friends in game in the same boat as I am getting really tired of cheaters and exploiters.
