Who isn't banned from those forums by now? I got my ban years ago. Still, I doubt that your friend got banned for just one shitpost. At least I needed to get several infractions (they are really easy to get) and temp bans before they actually gave me a perma ban.

Anet is a large company with regulations, guidelines, procedures etc. They probably have to deal with heaps of reports on daily basis, some of which are probably false. This is why it took them 10 days of constant complaining. I don't think they can just go "LOL BANNED" on a whim.

Which is why they should close the exploits in one way or another. There is currently no anti cheat feature at all.

Here is the topic where the dev posted the video in question. https://forum-en.gui...-part-10/first Would have edited my post but edition of posts seems to be broken at the moment.

In the official forums people complained about this particular hacker for 10 days or so until he finally got banned. He was from some less popular server, I don't remember which one, but this allowed him to reset most of the keeps and towers in his WvW match up when it wasn't prime time.

Personally I don't much value in that youtube video. I'd rather have Anet close the exploits and ban the rest of the hackers as well. There are still plenty of speed hackers roaming free in both pvp and wvw, and the less experienced eye probably can't even tell when a thief or mesmer is actually being aided by a hack. The invulnerability hackers who plagued WvW matches last year, by the way, still aren't banned.

I wouldn't be too suprised if this  "public execution"  was just a cheap way to cover the fact that Anet is unable to patch the vulnerabilities these hackers exploit. The fact that it took 10 days of constant complaining in the forums and apparently hundreds of reports to even catch this particular hacker, is already embarrassing enough. This youtube video is full of hypocrisy considering how Anet has previously given infractions to those reporting hackers in the official forums in addition to deleting their posts.

The engine couldn't handle a z-axis.

Honestly, the engine still struggles when it comes to the z-axis. Inconsistent teleports, arbitrary AI resets, random falling damage, unbreakable midair immobs... Even the old good random "obstructed" is still there to piss off projectile users.
