Playing Kharkov and Kursk i noticed something that brought up my attention. Everytime im killed by a clan member the 420th i dont have a death message. All it says is =420=. Nothing else. Could this be a hack cheat or glitch? You decide.

Wierd. Never seen that before. Using that reasoning, my guess would be some kind of hack (that is if it happens only when a 420th member killed you). Then I would just say it was a glitch if it happened whenever anyone else killed you.

Most likely exploiting a glitch. Using the term "hack" implies that you did some coding, and did a bit of homework. If you were going to spend that much time, why would you only do that! It would take a bit of time since almost anything you would want to do is server side including names. Just out of curiosity, were they hosting?

I have heard of them crashing other people if they are losing a match (clan match). Or maybe it was not them, who knows.

Hmm are you sure your not cheeting? It could be a result of cheeting on your behalf?

I mean look at your mini map, what are those purple markers with big red boxes around them? Could that be a radar hack I wonder?

[COLOR=burlywood]If I'm not mistaken, VonMeyer's running Merciless, that's why his arrow's different. And those "red boxes" are the flags of the uncapturable bases! Come on! :lol:

About the name thing, heck if I know what it'd be, I'd lean toward exploit though since exploits are usually what you find people using in online gaming more than a hack. Could just be a freak bug, God knows I get enough of them on my end, but I'd keep my eyes open for anything else off kilter.[/COLOR]
