Because it will destroy this game if there are too many cheating player. All of players of AOE3 are the victims of cheating
I really dislike cheaters, but sometimes they challenge me to become better. I get your point and they should be ban so they can learn a lesson.
It is almost impossible to play again against someone that is not cheating in AOE3. It seems to have ramped up in 2020 and is ruining the game. Players are getting troops without spending resources on them. Really don’t get the mentality that there is any fun in cheating to win. I really hope that they fix this in the DE version.
