[Cheater in QS]

  • Quote

Post by uberjz »

While scrolling through the game browser I see a game between the people's champion (@giveuanxiety) and the mysterious gamer "EagleFootman". I don't watch the Dutch perspective too closely at first (who would?). A few minutes into the game, though, I start to get a funny feeling...

Image
An impressive score pre-8 minutes. He must have a sick build order!

Image
A Bank Wagon! (take note of the game time, 8:55)

Image
Interesting deck. I notice he hasn't sent a bank wagon yet. Where did the Bank from the earlier screenshot come from? Both shots are taken at 8:55.




I have already made a post in the official forums:

Stay safe!

Thanks for finding this. I was legit about to quit aoe3 after that game because of being frustrated and also not enjoying the game. Knowing he cheated makes that game make sense and makes me want to play again.

Ah, fudge! I knew something fishy was up when I faced a few players.

They were also playing Dutch, interestingly enough. The replay went OOS despite me having just played the game. I wanted to check their build to see how they out scored me so badly. Guess they must have cheated. I didn't face this account but I know I've met hackers before.

Good to know.

I lost track of what the account that I faced was, unfortunately.

With this fantastic DE feature of being able to change your name after every game, it is also impossible to keep track of who is a scumbag and who is not

This is the actual harm that cheating does. And now the thought of them potentially cheating will always be on your mind :/

But don't forget that before we had DE, we faced a loooooooot more cheaters in RE. ^^ So that's not something I would complain about.

I can not recall getting cheaters on EP. So there seems to be a known way to prevent it.

simply put random cheater probably werent interested in loading a fan patch to try and cheat a much much lower player base instead of having endless fun in RE. I think i saw a twitch stream of somebody hacking EP and spawning stuff in singleplayer just to test his hacking skills but not in a mulitplayer game.

Yeah, that's exactly it. DE is already more secure than EP, but there are more real hackers interested in hacking it.

Yea it’s just numbers. 100 or 200 people played EP. Tens of thousands play DE.

Surely for the average skill of esoc players the effective community is of roughly similar size

Yes, but some 800 elo player can get his hands on cheats and be 1800 elo in a matter of hours, while this didn’t happen on ep.
