I met twice with this guy, lost around 32 points…Reported him from the game as well…
Can I get the points back and this guy already blocked from the game ?

I cheated on me too, i am a very new player, i thought i might have left a checkbox open which says allow cheats. but couldnt find that option anywhere. we already have such a small community of players on aoe3 still such people spoil it for us. whats the point.

You take action??? When??? Because this is hapening for a long time, people report and you do absolutely nothing. Its frustrating to play ranked at this moment… even sometimes you get oos only to find out you lost the game streak… congrats on your definition of “taking action”.

Wait for the patch :slight_smile: Thats all i´m allowed to say, sorry <3

Awww, someone sad he doesnt have insider informations? :frowning: So sorry for you.
But good that you know whats happening behind the scenes <3
Laugh at people that help you and the game ;3

Im an insider too, i have played age 1, 2 and 3 alpha and beta :slight_smile:
and we know what you saying is complete BS.

Yes ofc you know that :rofl:
