itburnsusMap Hack Bannings

The most prolific users of a map hack for Age of Empires III and The WarChiefs have just been banned from online play. We advise all players to refrain from using any sort of third party program to cheat in online games. We are aware of this activity and will be banning anyone from this day (03/22/07) forward who uses such a program to degrade the online experience of the vast majority of players who play fairly.
