The article doesn't bother pointing out that you can only cheat for IN GAME currency (ie. Mirian). You CANNOT cheat for gold because that's stored on their servers. In the same way that you can't directly cheat for chests, as they are stored server-side, not on your PC.
It's just more sensationalism to get attention. Just like all the fake articles about the loot system being "required" and how the endgame was locked behind a paywall.
They also don't point out that the loot boxes are mostly useless. You will find far better gear and orcs by simply playing the game.
Same here, for most of it and i am using the steam version for the the Steam game. The only issue I am having with the trainer is the fat that if I have the health cheat on while conquering a fortress it will freeze or Talion will die when opening the door to the last battle (the one where you kill the overlord).. Even if I turn health cheat off before activating the door, it does the same thing.
Anyone else have this issue?
