Just one thing...does it really "matter" if it's prevelaint? I mean...if you find an exploit in a game, don't you just steer clear of it so you aren't "cheating"?
but, if it is there, then, people do tend to use it, even more so, in a PBEM game
also, in these games, the AI does not to everything you say, so, you may think, okay, a raid under 8,000 ft is cheating, so I will make sure all of my raids are set to come in over 8,000 ft, and then the AI will stagger the raids as they fly in
but, yea, in a perfect world
If that's true, then I simply don't get it. Even more so for PBEM. I would NEVER cheat in a game if I found out it was an exploit of the programming, and I certainly wouldn't do it in PBEM. I can't abide cheating and I can't abide cheats. A level playing field...mano-a-mano...my mind against their mind...that's the way it should be. I have no time for cheats.
