Well, my opinion:
He is shooting a tank, not a player.. maybe he somehow got down but he is still near original point and uses it correctly.
Cheating is bad. Using an item to cheat is bad. Regardless of how said item was obtained, use of said item is bad. Bad people will be banned.

Every day alliance accuses us for protecting Horde, and horde does the same for Alliance.. I am not protecting anyone, just saying what I see on your screenshot.

http://www.truewow.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=12466 He directly attacked a player while being down.
And of course, i just said my opinion, and didn't lock topic, which means anyone else can say if he is banned or not, and ban him if deserved.
Anyway, not here to argue. I'm leaving this topic.

This is bannable if he used the cannon to hit a tank or a player after moving the cannon

Can anyone shine some light on one thing though, how do players manage to move these cannons in the first place as cant move them on str or live realm,

This is confusing, are you telling that l should get banned if l take fallen cannon and move it to gate and shoot from near gate?

Teraan, Your screenshot shows him attacking a tank.. not an individual player. If you have a screenshot showing him shooting you (out of the tank), please post it. Also I see no damage occurring.

actually this whole thing is messed up...
idk what causes the cannons to be moved, but if it's disorient effects like Nyeriah said, then the reason why so many people are getting banned is because actually the opposite faction if bugging the cannons in the first place.
another point. few days ago in a SOTA there was a cannon on the ground, i tried getting in it and taking it back to its original position, but i was unable to move it backwards, i could only orientate it to the same degree you could to a cannon that is in its original location, so you can just keep getting forward with it.
that being said, if by mistake a player went down with the cannon, not being able to use it anymore because it's " bug abuse " is a huge disadvantage to the whole team.
If you think about it, when the cannons are down, it's rather easier for the opposite team to break it.
I'm not supporting this walking cannon thing but what i'm saying is, if this ( let's say bug ) occurs, just let it be, as long as the team doesn't abuse it by literally going way off the initial location just to attack and kill people / tanks
teh char list ( 80s ) :
Jynx / Zubat / Alyce ( Swagmourne ) / Discord / Redtube
Disruption / Perplexity / Magejkdruid / Swagstormxqt ( Swagmobile )

wah!!! he was abusing cannon by moving..no matter what was he targeting. Main thing is he abused that cannon by moving far from cannon platform and Shooted it from long place (not from cannon platform) while moving...AND the topic is cannon abuse not shooting abuse...GM pls think again about this again.Its totally banble. wanna see a fair judge.

I think GMs should decide beforehand specifically what's abuse and what isn't so that it doesn't seem like GMs are just randomely deciding on the spot what's what, in all fairness. Such as, that's abuse if X distance and/or shooting players, etc.
I can imagine a player's frustration when what has always seemed abuse suddenly is fine due to conditions that let it be okay yet that weren't stated previously. Just saying, people can abide by rules better when they know them better.
