    Subject: Some kind of drop hack? help plz.

    Greetings fellow aoe3 lovers,

    So i was playing this 3v3 game and my team was winning easy. Suddenly a player on the other team (id :playforfunscania) showed up to be unresponsive and as soon as the timer reached 55 it disappeared and came back after 2 secs, reset, starting at 60 again.this cycle kept repeating itself although the timer just reached 59 henceforth. the player could still speak to the rest of us somehow and was boasting about how we cannot win from here and how his/her team is gonna win.

    I don't understand how this is possible for a couple of reasons :

    1. if someone is unresponsive(ie. has left the game or is lagging) how can they still speak to the rest of the players?

    2.once the timer has started how does the player keep resetting it?

    this as you can guess is highly annoying when all your time is wasted because of a cheater.This had happened before too so i decided to take a stand and not quit straightaway. i just kept waiting and waiting and after about 3 hrs suddenly the timer stopped resetting and  actually started timing down i and the others on my team all clicked on drop and except 1 person on their team all had drop highlighted. But as soon as it reached 1 it got stuck and was on 1 for another few hours.

    Now i did some searching and found out that the getting stuck on 1 bit was called a drop hack but found no thread which could explain the annoying resetting of the timer again and again.

    could anyone tell me how a player does this(resetting cycle) and the drop hack and how can u stop it from happening?

    I think the information about how to do this is kept strictly secret because if you'd post it on forums like these the only possible result is that more people start drophacking.

    I think your best move is to think "its just a game", then leave it, play another and never care again about it.

    I found this thread by googling playforfunscania. I have played with him twice now and both times he has drop hacked after he rage quit because he was losing. He rushed me and got owned.

    I like that aoe3 does not get ban happy with us, but I really feel that players who hack or whatever this is should be banned.

    Just pest and forget... After much searching, I promise there is no other better alternative.  I typically also walk into the other room, look into the mirror and repeat the words 'serenity now' at least 5 times...  but that is just so that my computer doesn't end up on the sidewalk in pieces.

    You can do that..in your personal time.

     

    But as a practical course, all you have to do to get your win when someone goes unresponsive is get back to ESO before them.

    This means as soon as you see the unresponsive player window, kick him and quit the game. I'm not sure why thats how drophacking works, but it is.

    It seems impossible to kick a drop hacker, from my experience. What happened was eventually he stopped doing whatever it was, but someone else had glitched out.

     I think the best thing to do is just disconnect yourself, which I hate doing, but I think it's fair enough in this case.

     anyway I really just came here to warn others about playforfunscania.
