    Quite simple, post the playerID or someone you positively know was boosting, cheating, glitching, etc and what system and gamemode you were playing.


    I emphasis positively because with Peer-to-Peer games like FoC lag can make someone seem like they aren't taking damage.


    I'll kick off the thread with a bunch of players on the PS3 playing Conquest who were trying to set up a boosting room, and in fact they are people I've encountered before in boosting rooms. If you see them, ruin their games.

    Someone reported me to Highmoon for throwing 3 EMP Grenades at the same time even though I had the Intercooler.
    What Should I do?

    In my group of friends, we're all 100% sure the number one player on the leaderboards(PSN) for conquest boosted his way there. They tracked his progress, he got like 3500 score in about 3 hours... considering the high end per match is about 50 on average... yeah. He's also prime and everything maxed at prime. It's so sad, but losers abound I guess...

    Not terribly up on the terms. Please explain what Boosting is?

    Artificially inflating their score. Basically they will have 12 people capturing the same node over and over again in rapid succession so that they get thousands of points a round to rank up fully in a matter of minutes.

    Not really 100% on topic but has anyone managed to snag a picture of the hackers using Dinobots and Insecticons yet? I keep hearing stories but I've yet to see one for myself.

    There's some confusion on that.

    Swoop is a pre order bonus for MP.
    Most characters have dinobot heads for level 25.
    Most characters have insecticon heads for various Prime levels.

    Now.. if you see a guy bigger than a Titan wielding a sword or literally turning into Grimlock in MP, you got a cheater.

    I believe boosting is when a group of players work together in order to level up without really having to play the game. Needless to say, it isn't fun for other players.

    It wouldn't even be an issue if High Moon let people earn XP in private matches.

    Add Volatileprime, z Emokidd z , and FAIL0thePrO on the xbox, they were all using a lag switch, every time I got close to them they would jump around and teleport, this happened multiple games, I confronted them after a game we won, they admitted it and told us to F-ing try to report us, they would do nothing

    I saw someone using Grimlock's shield. Is that suspicious?

    Me and a few buds do this, except it's not cheating, we just all fly in form and rotation to each node we lose. You get about 20k just for loosing and re-capturing the objectives.

    I don't really see Boosting as a huge problem, I know some people online who boost, they never do it until they have 12 players and they are all friends with and they all know what they are doing. That way they are not ruining it for anyone else and usally if someone else that is not one of their friends enters. Like one of them leaves and some random player enters, if they don't understand what they are foing and joins in, then they just play it as it useally is. And Yes if Privat eMatches gave XP, then therre would be no Boosting, Now Cheaters and Glitchers I understand as a problem I just don't see boosting as a main problem though

    I don't get the booster hate. Whenever I join a boosting game I just leave. No need to act like a child throwing a tantrum and spoil everyone elses fun.

    I asked the same thing awhile ago. It's a normal ability you unlock for the Titan at level 10 I think.

    Yep.

    Because they are cheating. They are boosting their score which gets them all of the unlocks and ruins the leaderboards.
