Lag or Cheater?

6 replies 215 views Edited Oct 29, 2013

Several times today, I was against players (may have been the same player but not sure) who would get downed, then get up (unaided) and back to fight position... then, when they were shot, they would die (hit with the bow, not the military sniper rifle)...

 

Not sure which this is (personally, I'd side more with "cheater")

 

Thoughts?  Similar experiences?

I have had the same experience with one particular player and everyone on my team would experience the same issue when fighting him.

 

It seemed pretty convenient for that one person so I am inclined to believe that it was some form of exploit.

I obviously wasn't there, but I will tell you this: my general rule on whether it's major lag or cheaters, is if the lag always seem to work in their favor. Played a game on AC earlier where the entire match would just f!cking rewind the second the opposing team made any kind of mistake so they could fix it. Lag isn't really preferable, it's just kinda a big laggy mess for everyone. Cheaters on the other hand, it will always work perfectly for them.

I never thought of having a general rule for cheaters/laggers. I just always try my hardest to not assume cheating, unless it gets a little too ridiculous.

 

I have to say though, such a rule seems extremely appropriate for all forms of online play.

I actually just saw that video right before I looked back at this thread... the whole incident in the video around 1:00 is exactly what I was referring to.

I do not possess the recording capability... but it definitely adds a new aspect to the game...

 

Even the infected do not have that ability... they can only turn into infected when they are living and they are dead once they die.

 

It would be a very bad thing if the wolverine-grade healers became infected.
