Report to Blizzard a.s.a.p
This can easily be done with:
- Honorbuddy Bot
- Lazy Raider (a part of the bot that casts spells for you but does not move the character)
This is most likely what it is, its not a "HACK" or something new, he just uses the bot for interrupting thats all
yeah been seeing this for awhile now in random bgs, Bots that can interrupt a 0.4 sec cast ...
I have footage of a 3v3 match against a warrior who was using a teleport hack from earlier this season - because apparently KFC wasn't strong enough for him after the Stampede hotfix finally went live :/ (It was super blatant, when we would get him low he teleported out of line of sight around a pillar, for example).
It happens, it sucks, and Blizzard should really take a ban approach to these sorts of things - but they don't. Their forum moderators ban people for life for trivial offenses like mentioning other MMO's and speaking hyperbolically - but their in-game concept of "ban" is 1 day. It's like when parents say "GO TO YOUR ROOM!" to kids nowadays - seemingly unaware that the room is full of video games and cable tv - if anything their lax policy encourages further bad behaviour.
If you're running and press a spell with a cast time I assume that a command is given to the game however it fails to get executed due to certain restricted circumstances. So does this program react on the given command or immediately when you cast? I don't even know if this is even remotely possible but it would be interesting. Theoretically the slightest amount of lag could interfere and make it seem as if it only reacts on cast while it actually reacts on the given commands of an opponent.

1) Keybind that sets focus on your mouseover or target in advance.
2) Exactly same macro mentioned before that works on focus, no matter if he is in "totems or taurens" or gnomes.
Set 1) on player you see healing before you get in close quarters, use 2). PROFIT.
Congratulations, now you're hacker and somebody will probably make video about you too.
Solution: Find someone who uses this "hack".
Have a keybind for Heartstone
Press said keybind
Freecast for 8 secconds
The way the "hack" works is that it reacts on pixels where the enemy cast bar is and allows the interrupt to go through, all they have to do is to press it all the time, usually just macro'ed into the rest of your spells as it is off GCD anyway.
The cast bar is shown, the interrupt button is hit while the bar is shown, the cast should be interrupted, the player correctly hit his/her button when it should have been hit, the player did everything correctly, but the cast doesn't get interrupted, because the opposing player stopped their cast fast enough to cause the latency to make the interrupt miss.
Fake Casting is exploiting, it's abusing latency to cause a correct action to fail. That some players are now exploiting to counter this exploiting is justice in my mind.
Blizzard should fix this by breaking fake casting and the exploit mod. If the casting bar is on your screen, and you get the interrupt off while the bar is there, it should interrupt. If having that makes some classes too powerful, then that needs to be addressed, but latency exploiting shouldn't be encouraged or accepted.
When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them."Gamer" is not a bad word. I identify as a gamer. When calling out those who persecute and harass, the word you're looking for is "asshole." @_DonAdams
Can't be sure if he was really hacking. I've seen plenty of people who interupt almost instantaneous. Kicking mass dispel .1 into the cast etc etc. Could he have been hacking? sure, is it for sure? no idea. Focus mind freeze is a wonderful thing.
