Caught a player fly hacking w/ screenshot proof

#1 » Post by illinifan1018 » 08 Jun 2017 22:53

Hey I was just leveling in western plaguelands and saw the paladin 'Leotheras' flying around on his 60% paladin mount. I was told this was the place to report so here is screenshot proof: http://imgur.com/a/6RufN

This area of Western Plaguelands tends to have a bug where people will "fall into the sky" and it will take about 30 seconds to return to Azeroth. I'm not sure exactly what this looks like outside of the perspective of the individual falling, but this /may/ be an instance of that bug, rather than mal intent. We will keep our eyes on this individual for the future.

Even in a mount?

Hello!

Thank you for the report. I've taken the decision to claim this to be a true scenario of hacking. Based on the screenshot given, the player in question mounted up while being in mid-air and thereafter follows it up by running upwards into the sky. With nothing that contradicts, I have dealt a ban to the player.

This player have from this posts timestamp a 48 hours time window in order to create an appeal for the case. After expired time, we will not lift or withdraw the punishment in any way whatsoever.

Regards.
