Reporting Cheaters - read this first!


#241

We dont really know if its just 1 game. He may have cheated against someone else and the opponent might not have bothered reporting or didnt notice

even if its just a glitch, he could have only used the normal amount of wits


#242

Then he wouldn’t know if its just the wit counter showing the number of wits wrong or if the game really did give him 600 wits

The wisest thing to do if you somehow glitched and got that many wits is to

  1. only spend the number of wits you should have
  2. message the other player that you have glitched but will only spend the number of wits you should have
  3. post on the forums that you have glitched, but you are not cheating and will only spend the number of wits you should have
  4. message alex and adam with how it happened if you know

doing anything less than that will make people think you cheated. Doing all of that will likely clear you of any wrongdoing and won’t get you banned.

It’s most likely someone else trying to trick others into thinking they are a recognized player. I seriously doubt it’s the real

FireAaron.

The replay is on Fireaarons OSN page. I’m guessing its real cause the account has been added on iPros clan and he also has games against iPro members.

Thanks for the investigation. I didn’t have time to do the research, so I just believed Doodat :).

Fishy indeed.


#245

I was just looking at the clan list which says FireAaron08

It says FireAaron08 there because thats what iPro listed on their memberlist


#247

most of us know that guy (I think :s), he’s from iPro (I think), if this is just a one-off thing then we can let this go with a warning… Right… guys…?
Nvm, will the real/ always has been real FireAaron8 please stand up?

I dont think we should bend the rules just cause this person is a member of a clan.

I agree. I don’t like this. I’m hoping somebody hacked his account. Otherwise, it doesn’t look good for him.


#250

I feel like everybody is paranoid that he’s cheating like Guess Who :]
[hr]
I mean that he’ll cheat in almost every game he starts like Guess Who :]


#251

Really shouldn’t post hacks, even if it’s easy to find online, please delete.

Additionally, why would it matter if he found it online and just decided to try it? Are you saying everybody should get to cheat once and that makes it OK?


#252

roger that! :slight_smile: sorry about that I’m new to forums. And I’m not saying trying to cheat is OK but the point is that he did it, its too late to be mad at the guy and stuff, but if he doesn’t do it any more we should be happy that its one less hacker instead of being mad that he was once a hacker… Just saying.

Hi there,

I think I met a cheater for the first time.
The name of the user is “Andersi”.

The game crashes in turn 2. And then in turn 4 he must have like 20 wits or so. And it goes on and on.

If someone can look at this and tell me if I am right.

And again, the only reason the game crashes when watching a turn is because the player making that turn at that time is cheating.

I just submitted a report on Anders¡ as well. On his third turn, he used 22 wit against me after spending all his wits from his first and second turn AND not bothering to capture his wit node. He spawned 2 soldiers, 1 heavy, and a bramble, moved all of them, burrowed his bramble, which created 4 thorns, and attacked with the heavy and thorn. Yup seems legit… spawning two units per production node… and then proceeding to move all of them and attack with the ones in range.

P.s. I’m hoping they ban him before he wins. If not, I’ll upload my replay.


#258

Yesterday I got the message from OML that the user has been banned.
But I have another game against him and that is still open.

How long does it take till the game gets closed or could it be that they banned the wrong user?


#259

the game wont end. just send in your turn and wait for the game to time out manually


#260

Turn 3…
