For gods sake, please developers can you say something about the recent events? Multiple posts about cheats and hacks on different AOE2 related forums. Plenty of videos that show how town centers gets deleted at the start of the game. I dont want my favourite game to get destroyed like that.
I doubt there will be no fixed in short so they can boost the sell of AOE4
AOE 2 DE (And 3 DE) have really big vulnerabilities in regards of cheating and hacking, need basicaly a VAC like system to start with
VAC protection is only for valve games, mac ban only applies if the developer of each game asks for it in specific cases.
What microsoft needs is to hire Easy Anticheat for aoe2, they already work with them for halo the master chief.
