Sudden influx of hackers

While trying to train in Sleepywood in Broa/Khaini, I noticed there was a sudden increase in hackers/botters taking over pretty much every channel.
I couldn't find a free map in Silent Swamp in all 20 channels and after moving to Humid Swamp, it felt like I was being chased by them, finding an open channel only to have it get taken over by a hacker barely 2 minutes into killing Drakes.

Sorry if my formatting is poor, I don't normally post on forums and I don't know where to even put this besides maybe submitting a ticket.
Hopefully I can correctly get an image up. The hacker is on the top right of the screen.

    I'm sorry to hear that, exactly the same thing happened to me and from my experience, the best thing you can do is simply give up.
    Yes, I know it's hard to read that but it's really the best thing to do because hackers will never take care of.

    I have already quit training, it's really useless and annoying because of hackers.
    Especially when you see a group of random people that their character (their igns were random, such as "aw3fasw4t3") lvl is barely15-18 and then the next day you see them in henesys again, all of them lvl 250..... (all of them were almost 100% naked)
    So why should I waste my time? nah I'd totally pass it -_-

    Also a lot of people are talking about what you're saying right now but Nexon usually just take these kind of threads and move them to "Rants and Raves". why? of course they'd tell you that it's because you're "rant" and this is "crazy talking" and such, but we all understand that the real reason is because they're trying to hide the fact that the amount of hackers is literally insane and they don't want/can't take care of hackers.

    So it's much easier to just make a section in the forum which is called "Rants and Rave" and simply move all those threads to that section instead of actually taking care of the problem.

    We can't help you through the forums. Reporting through a ticket is the correct course of action.

    Problem is that hackers are running out of hidden spots to hack due to them already being taken by other hackers. New hackers seem to have to get more bold now and move to more common areas. Feels like at this rate, there won't be a single map without them anymore. Nexon needs to do something before the game is all hackers and no one can even play anymore.

    Moderator note: You were not warned for anything remotely close to hackers, you were warned for trying to derail the GMS flames/stars thread and spreading FUD.

    If you keep derailing threads like you're doing, it'll escalate.

    Yeah, you're lucky though, I know someone who literally got banned for some really silly reasons, frankly, I'm scared to write it here, even though it really is silly reason. lol. I mean, I've never been in North Korea, so I don't know how it feels like but I think I kinda starting to get that feeling....
