    My guess would be, that the top notch (speedhacking) PvPers have to get used to playing at those speeds, so it is practice. They need to practice moving as the ground skips along under them.

    All I know is he had a red cape, maybe an "S" on his shirt?

    really though, it's the same speedhack from the old days....

    Guess it shouldn't be a surprise, with all these people unattended fighting their golems right at the entrance to the banking area.

    You sure you didn't just lag. I would assume aLL the traffic in luna would make everyone look like they are the flash compare to someone in a slower connection. Even if the connection is just a little slower.Oh those people are not unattended or they would of being taken away after being paged about a billion times everytime someone walks next to them.

    Yeah, I'm sure I didn't lag. Unless there is a server issue, Luna doesn't lag me.

    Are you sure there wasn't a sponsored Luna trolley-dash on at the time, this guy being the winner?

    Anyhow, comes to something if someone needs to speedhack in Luna. Not content with killing you quicker, running away from you quicker, they want to buy everything... quicker.

    Are you on 2d or EC? DiD you have a race? Any turns?Your ping at the time? Processor speed? connection? any tweaks? Cable or Dsl, t1,fiber,etc? If on DSl are you on interleave or fast path, If on cable does your service get speedboost. Is your nic a gaming nic or regular nic? Too many factors to try. If your on 2d try to find him again with the EC client you should see a much better difference in your speed compare to his. Thats the first thing to try if you really want to investigate if he using a speedhack program or just got a better connection or whatever in his pc.
  10. No offense.. but I'm sooo tired of seeing these threads.

    One, its already been determined that not everyone who is faster is speedhacking.. theres the EC, faster connections, faster computers, etc etc etc

    Two, we know speedhacking is a problem, UO/EA is suppose to be working on a fix for it... (sooner or later)

    whats the point of having a new thread about it every other day???

    I'm not trying to start anything here, but really, these threads pop up constantly.
    And unless we have a screenshot of everyone desktop its near impossible to know if someone is actually speedhacking.

    Because I really don't care if someone speedhacks, I just found it funny that someone was doing it in Luna.

    No ur right we should just let the cheaters cheat etc etc. Why keep bringing it to the attention of ea its apparent they dont give a ****. I mean its been how long since they acknowledged speedhacking was a burden at a town hall meeting?

    I guess since they through some random number 95% we should all be amazed and sit back and wait. From someone who pvps a good share im sorry but ill continue to post and reply to speedhacking threads as this crap effects my everyday gameplay.

    I love how when someone elf turns a color or some cave cant get into you dont mind reading those posts 5-6 times. God forbid something effecting your gameplay for what 5 years(since they acknowledged it) and you coming here to let EA know ur mad about it.

    So let me see if I got this straight now. someone is speed hacking in Luna...buying ALL the stuff at a HIGH markup...and then speeding out of luna.

    Umm..since luna is Very over Priced on some shards..wouldn't it be smarter to speed hack over Brit and find vendors that way at a fraction of the cost??? :D I mean heck ya going twice the speed...It wont seem That long at least :D

    btw I get your humor in it :D

    Come to think about it...I wonder if they made speed hacking available for real life..would make going to the grocery store Alot less time wasting. :D heck in and out of wally world in 10 minutes versus the 40 minutes Im usually there.. :D
  14. Since EA doesn't appear prepared to stop speedhacking, why not make it legal and post a thread showing EVERYONE how to do it...then everyone would be back on "equal" footing with this issue!

    Make it legal and out the "secret' and its no longer a cheat, no longer a gripe, and no longer appearing in these threads!rolleyes:
  15. On some shards I look like I'm speedhacking Luna too, at least my friends say that I am and on other shards, it looks like everyone else is speedhacking, so please forgive me if I don't find it funny, I just see it as yet another thread about speedhacking.

    The Devs know about it and so does everyone else, but you honestly think they read every single thread started about it and every single post ppl make in that thread? Not so much, even I ignore most of them anymore.

    To be honest I dont know who speedhacks and who doesnt. With new computers, faster internet connections and the EC, it makes it even harder to tell.

    Unless I have a screenshot of that persons desktop, with toolbar included, or I see it in person, I say very little about who speedhacks and who doesnt.
