Hey people. So I have seen many reports in the past couple months stating a player is maphacking.
1. Provide replay - Self explanatory, Don't try to make staff go hunting for a replay. They probably won't anyways. It is up to you to link a replay when reporting maphack. I know that people are currently unable to download replays from the stats page ath the moment. Do yourelf a favor and remember to save a replay at the end of a game (provided you haven't left it before it was over...) You can do this at the score screen at the end of the game where it says "Save replay" and name it anything you want. Also, provided you haven't entered another game before uploading said replay to the ban report, look in your replay folder for "LastReplay.w3g. Once a game has ended, Warcraft 3 auto saves the last game's replay.
2. OHS admins ask for timestamps (Time of game where you suspect a player of said offense - For example... @AyyLmao at 23:01 game time, went straight into the woods and went right to where enemy player was farming neutral creeps.) There you have it. The staff doesn't have all day to look over replays from start to finish, which would take too long. This way they can fast forward to said time of game in the provided replay and don't have to search far to see if there is any evidence of maphack.
Lastly, Do some investigating into the replay yourself. Before you go making wild accusations about a player maphacking, Check to see the circumstances surrounding certain times throughout the game. Are there any wards? Maybe player was just barely in range to be seen on the minimap and deduce where that player may have been going. "How the hell did <Player> know where i was going while invis???" People use map awareness to judge where a player was heading at the time of use of invis. Numerous time's when I played Clinks, I would be heading one way then dart back the otherway right after i hit windwalk. Most often an enemy player will use dust or wards or even an ability near enough to where i was heading to stun or kill me. it is fairly easy to determine situations like that.
Hope this sheds a little light on how maphack reports are supposed to work. Follow these guidelines and your report won't be ignored.
P.S. @AyyLmao will one day be found guilty *Evil laugh*.. Joking really, I know he is a really good player... Sometimes....
