Subterranean cheating players!

I just submitted this "cheat" report:

"I'm seeing subterranean players all over Stonefalls and Bleakrock Isle that are harvesting iron ores. I approach an iron ore deposit, hear the pick sound, and can see either the tip of someone's hair, or the tip of a weapon/pick moving (sticking out of the ground), but the rest is below the ground level. This has been happening since at least 5/19 as far as I know. I cannot identify the players, but it unfairly cheats me from the ore."

I suspect they are harvesting more than just iron ore. Could be bots, IDK.
Also, Monday I heard a comment on chat about someone saw a player flying. When someone asked him if he saw the player's name, he said they were going waaay too fast to see the name, [across the screen and out of sight in a second]. I am also seeing fleeting flickers of something moving at that speed, low to the ground. At first I dismissed it as a graphical fluke. But now I suspect it was bots moving across the map at "super-speeds." Perhaps they are simply putting in a coordinate and going there nearly instantaneously, IDK. FYI.


I just got a screenshot of this happening, but more of the player showing (Bal Foyen):
   

The Iron ore was gone by the time I got the screenshot. But I did get his name in the screenshot: linery. I reported him.
Then, just now, I seen this guy appear out of thin air (not underground), and harvest a rune, and disappear again in front of my eyes! Seconds later, I heard a pick nearby. Unfortunately, I did not get his name. I think it started W/"H" & ended in two "u"s.

New bot ploy so players can't report them. I have seen a dozen of them in Auridon but was only able to report one by name. I beat him to his node and he paused waiting for it to respawn and I snagged his user name at that point.

In Cyrodiil over the last few days there is chaos. At least on EU server.

Players attacking from the ground and you cannot target them to hit the back.

Stealing scrolls through the ground where dozens of people are trying to defend.

And Fast moving or flying players are almost everywhere. From Khenarthi Roost to the veteran areas.

If ZoS doesnt do something soon enough to address the issues, the game is gonna get a serious hit in few weeks time when subscription renewals are due.

This same kind of underground farming thing was/is being done in other games. I distinctly remember seeing this same thing happening when playing Final Fantasy 14: ARR.
