I wrote Customer support today on this issue and here's what I had to say + there response and my return reply. Today I was playing PVP legends and Arena's. I reported 3 people for what I thought was a speed hack or macro violation but now I believe it could very well be that they were just clipping. Lately I've been hearing a lot about clipping and had to google it to learn more about it. To my shock I found out that players were consistently cancelling animation of weapon attacks or powers to beat someone. Please, please tell me how is it possible for the devs to have created a game that allows someone to hit a player with 3 or 4 moves without seeing any animation. This is absolutely the worst news I could receive regarding this game. I love PVP and PVE content and the sole purpose of me liking this game is to watch the animations that come from powers etc. Now Im learning that for me to become a elite player I have to learn to clip. How stupid can this thought process be. If I do decide to learn to clip it would destroy all the joy I get from watching my character smashing someone over the head with drop kick , haymaker or super power. The coolest thing about this game is becoming a super hero with incredible abilities but now if I wish to win matches I have to sacrifice all that amazing eye candy to accomplish a million moves in 2 seconds. Now I will never again enjoy the action sequence which I love so very much. Also how can this be fair to players who don't clip or have any idea what cliiping is. How do they know when to block if there's nothing to react to visually. This destroys the whole concept of the game for me. That someone can hit me with heat vision, multiple punches and whatever they clip with and I don't even get to see what hit me. Player's on the forums are saying it takes skill and that the game would become to slow. This is absolute horse ****, excuse my language but this game is quite fast and to defend clipping as a skill set is utter garbage. If the devs intended for this to be a part of the game then why bother with creating any animation at all. I'm so mad regarding this issue because I've spent at least 50-100 dollars monthly for the last 3 months on this game and now I'm seriously considering the thought of leaving. Please send me a reply that says you understand my anger over this and that sometime in the near future this will be rectified in a following game update. One last thing if it cant be taken out of the game there is one solution. If someone decides to clip that they suffer a penalty for damage output or they do not get rewarded for phantom moves period. Please consider my thoughts on this topic, Thank you and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR . CUSTOMER SUPPORT response I understand you had some concerns regarding clipping. This is not considered an exploit and is allowed. If you would like to comment on game features we suggest submitting feedback to the developers through the forums located at https://forums.station.sony.com/dcuo/ If there is anything further you need assistance with feel free to contact us again. Regards, Senior GM Volom MY REPLY I'm sorry I know your stance on this issue and what mepps has said about this issue on the forums but your not listening or reading my statement properly. This is a exploit that has never been taken care of. Shame on you and the devs for ignoring this since game release. Its obviously a huge mistake because if it was intended it would be explained in each tutorial and instruction book on how to master this stupid EXPLOIT but no its been a dirty secret amongst the elite community. I'm so insulted by your response do you take me for a total idiot. I have a question for you then. If you went to see the latest Superman movie that was released in 2013, would you go see a movie where superman hit general ZOD ten times and then finished him off with heat vision without seeing any of the special effects. The answer would be NO so why should I play a game where someone uses powers to that same effect and gets rewarded for PHANTOM DAMAGE. your reply is quite sad and your avoiding the problem. If this is considered acceptable then why do we play baseball for 9 innings, really by your response your telling me that I shouldn't watch the first 8 inning's and skip to the end. How about this two teams don't play at all they stand for the national anthem and when its over we just declare a winner because 10 PHANTOM home runs were hit. NUFF said.
