wall hack or have I lost my mind?
Ok I was just in a server playing King of the HIll on Harvest I was on red. I was kicked for "wall hacking." This is what I was doing. I placed 8 sticky bombs on the control point (covering the entire control point) and then left the control point and waited for it to change color from red to blue. If the control point changed color i would detonate the sticky bombs no matter where I was on the map killing or seriously injuring anyone who attempted to take the control point away from the red team. I was told that this is wall hacking then I was kicked. The argument was that I should not know where the enemy is standing on the control point to kill them with sticky bombs unless i was wall hacking. Now maybe i am naive or crazy but if the game's Heads Up Display and the announcer pretty much tell the players whenever the control point is being taken over by the red or the blue teams there shouldn't be a need to hack period by any player playing demoman. Then there is the fact that the entire control point as stick bombs on it. Like there was nowhere to stand without a sticky bomb causing damage in some way (unless outside the control point) I mean anyone playing demoman using the sticky bomb launcher or the scottish resistance could just pay attention to those very subtle clues (they are not very noticeable clues...at all...) and act accordingly...is it me? Have I lost my mind? Is everything silly today? or was it a wall hack?

It wasn't wall hacking. The people you were playing with were just idiots.

Yup. They're idiots who deserve to lose.

Non-idiots would have considered using explosives and airblast to scatter the stickies, using a Scottish Resistance or Detonator or Scorch Shot to destroy them en masse, shooting those that could be seen from outside... or even simply sent in a single player first, and given you a choice of losing all your stickies for a single capper who could then be immediately replaced by the multiple.

'Alert, the control point is being captures'
Demoman goes KABOOOOOOOM.
that's the basics of demoman.

What server was it?

Because they're a bunch of ♥♥♥♥♥s.

This tactic is as old as TF2. Lay stickies, find a safe place. Wait for enemy to capture. Blow them up.

Think that's bad? Make sure you've got "glow" effects turned on in the optiosn, lay a ton of SR stickies around – and a cluster on the Payload rails.

Watch the outline of the cart progress to your cluster of sticky bombs through the walls then detonate. KABOOM. Easy kills.
The game's practically got wall-hacks built in.

Perhaps you where holding the grenade launcher when you blew the stickies causing those you killed to see you holding the grenade launcher on the other side of the maps. It's far-fetched, but hey, I've played with some pretty stupid people.

Did they not know about the "Control Point being contested!"?
