|How to deal with cheaters ?|
|At Eurobattle.net we value fairness what means that cheating is NOT allowed here. By 'cheating' we mean all kind of 3rd party programs that allow particular user to use advantage of normally unaccesable things (for example seeing whole map while playing -MapHack ) as well as all kind of behaviours/certain acts that may have similar result as described above ( lvl-upping, bad manners ). In general, we disallow everything what destroys gameplay in any way. However....there are some expections. If you don't know them all, this F.A.Q is for you :)
As you can see, much more 'cheats' are restricted in PG than CG. It is connected with fact that public CGs are not scored or ranked in any way and people who play them do not receive wins/loses and icons in profile. Thus cheating there do not have as big consequences as in PG system. That's why we allow to use CustomKick and MapHack software in custom games( DotA, Tower Defence, BattleShips and so on ), but disallow it in Ladder and Tournaments Games.
Ok, now when You know which programs/acts are allowed and which are not, we can go to part about reporting cheaters. What if You noticed someone breaking any rule? ( using some 'hack', abusing something, having bad attitude, etc ) In such situation you should go to Hacks Section and report it at respective forum. ( MapHack use at 'Maphack!' forum, Lag Abuse at 'Lag Abusers' forum, NameSpoofer at 'Other Hacks' forum, and so on )
All the informations needed for reporting cheaters are inside Hacks Rule Book. Read it thoroughly before posting.
ATTENTION ! Eurobattle.net server/forums are virtual communities. As a matter of that fact we respect and obey all the laws and duties reputed as common standards. If You have any doubts of what is allowed and what is not, always ask some Moderator or Administrator before taking an action.
