Okay so for people who may not realise this, when you're getting interrupted literally instantly on your casts it is people generally using a third party bot, which can be modified to do additional things also. From my experience I've met people who are using this to:
1) Interrupt hack (interrupts you literally as soon as you begin the cast).
2) Fake-cast, there is a small delay between interrupts being used and actually landing on you. The bot picks this up and stops your cast once interrupts are used.
3) Trinket CC (LOL), only seen this once and it seems insanely pointless, but it trinkets CC as soon as it lands on you - shows how out of control things are getting and also how retarded people are >_<.
This has been going on for years practically unchecked due to very few people doing it, but now all the European battlegroups are merged and in particular with the russians, it seems to be very standard for 50% of the teams you meet in arena for them to be interrupt hacking (and if you meet russians, 95% chance that they're doing it).
It feels like people have so little faith in Blizzard / arena in general these days that they do not even bother complaining about suuuuch a huge deal. Why is this not a huge deal to people? I know arena is dying, but when GCD hack was being abused in season 8 there was the biggest storm and Blizzard did actually take care of that (eventually).
This is once again an absolutely awful season with very few people enjoying arena in general - it's very frustrating there hasn't been a balance patch already to take care of warriors yet, regardless I feel like interrupt hacking adding to it is just too much.
As it's very unlikely Blizzard will do anything about this in the near or far future, perhaps the best solution for EU is to separate the russians from everyone else as they're passively cheating in every possible way they can and are infecting the european ladder with pure aids.
It would be good if people can confirm that this is a very common problem in general for arena so perhaps if it gets tweeted to holinka it will not be ignored! Also, I'm assuming this is mostly happening on EU, aka russians? I've seen it a couple of times when I play on US every week, but not often.
