Player blatantly cheating in PvP.

I am not one to come here and do this but I just left a game where it was really obvious and changed the course of the game. A few teammates complained that the player was hitting them with focused aim ( 1 second cast ) numerous times at once. None of us lagging. I got hit with 3 of them at once for sure and then the same player ( "Voiler" ) killed me with 5 silver shards at once. How is this possible?

    It's not cheating per se, it's taking advantage of poor hit recognition on the target's end. The player fires all their skills as normal, but they know that often, the skills will land simultaneously on their target, even tho that shouldn't be possible.

    Google:

    Eso snipe health desync

    to learn more.

    @Mappy2kx

    your attitude is exactly why ZOS is dumbing down the game more with every patch. Simply because players want to be competetive but dont want to learn how to get to the level of the good players.
    If you dont even bother trying to understand how stuff works then how do you know that PvP is rubbish? It seems like you just walked into cyro once in a PvE build (or no build at all) got bursted by a good player and concluded that PvP is rubbish and that you dont even want to learn it.

    PvP is the only thing worth spending time on in this game, everything else is boring (That is not less biased than what you said in your post).

    But to be less cynic, everyone can play the part of the game they like best, but if you got no clue about PvP then please dont talk other players out of liking it.

    I watched 3 bundles of arrows sail together and nail me.

    And the 7 simultaneous silver shards while I was looking dead at him? Just my cognitive skills right? And the rest of my team?

    He was legit machine gunning people with silver shards we weren't imagining this, slow on the draw or lagging.

    You should take an informative screenshot or video if possible. Without that, there is not much anyone can offer.
