Even though I'm a noob, I was showing my nephew how to play AOE3 on-line on ESO. Couldn't get any bites on a Great Plains game I was trying to host. Joined a Conscript hosting a 1 v. 1 all maps, drew Caribbean. I was Brits with a level 2 city, he was Brits also, but had a more advanced London.

Within seconds of starting the game, he has 330 points! Within a couple of minutes, he lands on my island with 30 or so military units and takes down my tc. My nephew said that the opponent had cheated, takes the keyboard, and starts typing in cheat codes. My explorer was intact and so were a few settlers.

After an hour, my nephew was nanoseconds away from eliminating the opponent's last settler when he realized that the laptop had been running on battery power and was going into hibernation.

So my question is ultimately, is it possible to start with 300 point without cheating. And what justifies counter-cheating?

Disable cheats when hosting a game.

lol. cheats like those make the game unrated with no xp. real cheats are when you use droptricks or stuff to make the other player lose and you gain rating. normal games come default with no cheats, the only way to turn them on is to check the box that says "allow cheats" of course, if the box is checked, you should expect your opponent to "cheat"

From a poster at Agecommunity (Talking about the 4 cow age up option):

"Only a noob like you doesn't realize how valueble it can be. That's 2000 food waiting to be gathered"

Yeah that dude had cheats enabled, he hosted right? Why not host yourself? Does your connection speed allow it? It should, and just make sure cheats aren't enabled. If I play a QS game, i always record it. And if im hosting and someone doesn't want the game recorded, they can find another game to join.

anyways good luck with that Cruzeiro
