Yep, that's exactly why I've stopped playing lately. It's bad enough having to be wary of trigger-happy players 95% of the time you spend playing, but the increasing likelihood that you will be insta-killed, crippled, teleported, or otherwise fucked with at literally any time is just too much.

Lots of hackers just make themselves completely invisible now... I ran into one who chatted with me a bit, and when I went to move along and go about my business, he turned me into a zombie and left me helpless as I attacked him a few times (I'm sure he was invulnerable, too) and then killed me.

Thank god I had already decided at that point that I wasn't going to take the game seriously anymore, like really try to find good gear and survive as long as possible, because to meet a stupid death like that at random would be completely unbearable. Can't imagine the frustration some players feel when they lose a full set of choice gear falling victim to some jackass who gets off on trolling others in a damn video game...

It's become so rampant, that I bet around half of ALL players have at least one item that was just spawned into the game on a whim, whether directly into their inventory by oddly generous hackers or found on the bodies or ground leftover from some script-kiddy's joyride. You know I've seen a boat, a drive-able water vehicle, on top of the control tower at an airfield? I'd like to know where the hell the admins are on these servers, because of a lot of it's blatant like that. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of the admins are ones doing the hacking, or else exploiting what tools they have to achieve similar effects.

I hear you, its all caused by the publishers of games not banning people on their end.. Now its out of hand as they are not afraid. But you can perm ban these guys, but you must report them... Know how to get their GID, once database banned, their copy of Arma is toast on DayZ forever.
