I don't know that I like this.

I have no administrative power to find his IP (which he claims to change every now and then anyway), but his usual tank name is "Pat Labor has 3 Nipples!"
The hack goes like this: At specification, he is able to "hop" (change his coordinates) over another tank, where he uses his pre-equipped Shock Wave flag. He's real smart-ass, too, calling the others in the server "weak and worthless."
I've been seeing this guy do this for about a year now, and it's starting to get on my nerves. I've filed a couple reports with individual servers, but what can that really do? I want this guy's IP found and blocked!

RE: Ridiculous Hacker
He's one of the old-time faithful troublemakers. His various IPs are banned on most servers but of course not on all of them. With the next release, you'll likely be seeing a lot less of players like that as there is a new global bans system that will be in the next release. The system will allow the devs to remove extreme trouble-makers like that from most all of the public servers on demand. While server operators will be able to disable the global bans (or provide exemptions), the hope is that most will not so that such blatent disregard for other people's enjoyment of the game becomes less disruptive. This will put some heavier penalties on the cheaters and @ssclowns on servers that don't allow or want that.
