    Now its the second time I tries that warcraft freeze at the start of a game.
    I think its some kind of a new hack, because look at the screenshots.

    Notice that Figther- granted me the control of his units, and hes not even
    on my team. Then try look at my resources and my teammates - this is just 5 seconds after the game started.

    Have this happended for any of you? - I have never seen this before.

    This just goes to show that some people have nothing better to do but ruin the games of others.

    This definetly is a new hack.
    I mean obviously they are again exploiting some but and doing something that's immposible to be done and by doing this game crashes. You know, like that time it was some hack giving some non-existing orders to units, making game crash...

    You should check the D3scene forums. They probably have something to do with this. Or atleast one of their members.

    The control prompt is cause he is sending out the packets to give control even if they do not make sense. WC3 is highly prone to this form of exploit cause the makers obviously had limited idea how internet stuff works.

    The crash is a Graphic related crash by the looks of it so it is likly that by hime giving control it changes something being rendered thus crashes.

    Fortunatly Starcraft II I think is immune to this (as blizzard bothered to add checks to see if the instructions being tranmitted are valid).

    Plus in Starcraft 2 you can still have shared control of a hostile player. God knows why would you need it anyway...

    You can also in Warcraft 3. However the person was given control in a team locked game (can not change alliences outside of control for allies).

    It's a relatively old hack. You likely won't encounter it very much unless you play on Kalimdor or high tier player.

    As you can see, it's basically an instant win so drophackers are generally top-ranked now-a-days. It's sad that this is what the game has devolved into, but it's been this way for about the past 2 years.

    D3scene is a bunch of amateurs, get off their jock. You mention them in every single thread you post in.

    This hack originated from Russia, if I look around on wc3replays.com for a while I can find the host website, but I'd rather not.

    Actually as it seems it really does come from D3scene. Though it's on many other sites as well

    Actually, all the victims need to do it make a screenshot... and he'll have to start over (that is if it won't be a Key ban)

    I've been in games with it:

    1) It doesn't let you screenshot (the game freezes and then crashes right away)
    2) There's no replay (even if you do auto-replay, it's still corrupt)
    3) The only thing you can do is remember the name, /profile him, see his 1149-0 record, tell Blizzard, and wait a year for them to ban the list they've collected.

    And no, this hack does not come from D3Scene. It originated on Kalimdor, that's why Russian ISP are banned from Battle.net.

    Well if that's the case, then I guess not much can be done.

    That's been the general consensus for a while now. As long as you stay in the low tier (<55%) you'll hardly encounter it.

    I really don't see how anyone derives amusement from that sort of thing anyway
    I mean ending the game with a single click removes the game factor from the game, thus all you have is a meaningless number.

    On all realms, it plagues the tournaments, and I think if you win enough tournaments you get certain Blizzard prizes.
