    Just encountered a hacker on PSN

    Post by Lancelot on Fri Mar 01, 2013 3:18 am

    Presumably. I was fighting off invaders in the Forest when this one guy kept invading and BS fishing. Well, I backstabbed him, and... no damage. Just got up and started fishing again. So I took out my BSS and started wailing on him, still no damage, nor stagger, even though he was wearing robes.

    Rather sad.

    Hackers will always find a way. Disheartening as it is they will always find a way.

    I've learned to accept that, what I still cannot comprehend is how people derive enjoyment from it.

    It's even sadder when the hacker and another invader spam Shrug after BOTH backstab-fished me the entire time.

    It happened to me several times when my BSs don't do any damage, it's similar to when you "do" the backstab animation alone without anyone close to you and without taking damage, it's because of lag, pretty common; sometimes both guys do the backstab animation while being far away for no damage at all, very uncommon; in this case maybe players did their respective animations but did so close that it seemed they did a real backstab, very difficult for it happen, but it happened to me a few times, it's not hacking, it's just well synced lag.

    That is... unless you actually attacked him (not BS) while he being still and he took no damage. Otherwise he could have lag-dodged or what I described above.

    Shallow victory, meaningless loss. The fact he shrugged after cheating (making it seem like he actually pwned you) speaks volumes. Block him and move on. Get 50 att, max it out with force and dusk crown ring, and go troll him. Could be fun.

    i had a couple of instances in the forest just recently where i would get into an exchange with the host and my gravelord greatsword would swing right through them with no effect what-so-ever (no damage, no stun, no toxic effect, though it still made the squishy noise as if it had hit them). meanwhile they were able to hit me with impunity.

    i thought it was some sort of bizarre lag, but maybe not?

    I've seen the craziest stuff in the forest, and I don't think we can attribute it to hacks. I once invaded a guy who while last time his phantom killed me while I waved, I decided I'd let him finish his 1v1 before taking me on. It seemed pretty even until the Darkwraith started swinging at thin air with his demon great hammer and somehow slamming the host. The host retreated further into the forest, and looked at me as though to say "hey man, i thought you weren't gonna jump me" I could only in response. I really wasn't jumping him, the Darkwraith was somehow hitting him from over two screens away. At this point my fear overtook me and I backstabbed the Darkwraith, who took absolutely no damage and just stood there rotating. I panicked a little more and ended the hosts life so I could get outta there. Still no damage. I wailed on the phantom for over 15 seconds after the host died, nothing.

    My only guess is that perhaps the phantom and the host were both from vastly distanced areas in real life, and this created the scariest form of troll lag. While this was the most extreme case, I've seen enough crazy stuff to believe that it isn't hacks, but just Marker hallucinations messing with our heads.

    I've deallt with a few hackers like that, the best advice that I can offer is that you get them near a cliff or a steep fall and try to kick or backstab them off of it. Sometimes it works but sometimes it ends up with them not dying from the fall either but that's a rarity even for hackers.

    I've fought a hacker as well. Thankfully, they seem to have little to no skill at all, so I was able to do enough damage to kill myself at least 14 times, while only suffering maybe 2-3 hits. He was using a katana, btw. But speaking of lag, <3 those times where you and someone else both backstab the same guy at the same time for instakill damage. ^_^

    I don't think it was hacking. It's either a glitch or the guy had very big lag. I've met people with that kinda lag before. I was taking a nice stroll in the duke's archives when some invisible thing starts to hit me doing lightning damage. I lock on and it locks on the guy. I get backstabbed and die. Just a second before I die, I see "Dark Spirit XXXX has Invaded". The invader was there all this time but my game only registered him right before I died. Very nice lag.
