It’d be easy to scrub for M levels, or give us a report button. They’re so obvious. Three more:

So I learned that these M levels are called mastery levels. While they do break the game, they’re supposedly legitimate. After you max out your plants at 10, 15, or 20, these mastery levels open up. Information on these mastery levels isn’t even in the official Wiki, other than one paragraph. Unfortunately by opening up levels beyond “max,” they’re just incentivizing hackers to simply modify their profiles. By allowing these profiles to play Battlez, at about winning streak 10 you’ll encounter them and your strategy no longer matters.

Very disappointing.

Well, wouldn't it be nice if there was actually a category for cheating or harassment for PVZ2 Battlez in order to file a complaint? There isn't. I did submit a report under tech support/game performance which seemed like the logical choice. I am also copying and pasting a copy of my complaint below for the public to see.

Dear Sir/Ma’am,

I have included a list of the last 20 cheaters that I have encountered while playing your game Plants vs Zombies 2: Battlez.  I have provided the details below, players names, followed by the date and time (in 24 hour format, Eastern Standard Time), and a description of the plant levels used. I have posted pictures of the battlez result screen to show the plants/players names. The link and info is below.

I have 530 gems in order to retain my win streak after losing battlez to players that are obviously cheating. Maxed out plants or a mixture of maxed out plants and underdeveloped plants send a huge red flag, these accounts have been modified against EA TOS. 

I am requesting that I be reimbursed for the gems that I used due to losing to cheating players. It is EA’s responsibility to police their game and provide a safe, fair playing environment. Losing matches also decreased my score and kept me from finishing in a higher place and winning more mints, gems and coins, also I would like to be reimbursed for the 20 gauntlets that I used for these matches against these cheaters.

 

Thank you.

@Semoure18 - I have seen the screens. So basically you're saying everyone with plants with mastery levels is a cheater? I have now 50% of my plants in mastery and I can assure you, I've earned them. And even with those leveled-up plants, I lose every 10th to 20th game in Battlez. It is just the way EA has made the game; if you lose every now and then, you are tempted to spend money.
You should be careful calling someone a cheater, just because they have higher level plants.

Did you even read my message? Mastery levels at 199? And no pre-supplied plant is EVER at mastery levels. I don't have one plant at mastery and I've played this game since it's release.

I’ve played this game since release as well. Back before they changed the way the worlds levels were connected. When you could choose paths. 

 

I have never paid for gems. I’ve done every daily as often as possible to earn a few gems everyday. But I did buy the plants when they were on sale.

 

I can tell you that I have many plants in mastery at the moment.

And as long as they have battlez then I will keep getting many more plant seeds. Soon I will have plants reaching max mastery.

 

Only people with all M200 plants are possible cheaters. But it would be hard to prove it as they could pay for seed packs to max those plants.

 

Only EA could prove who paid for the seeds and who didn’t. Your proof doesn’t help them.

MY screenshots will indeed help them. All they need to do is research the player's name and purchase history. Any inconsistencies mean cheaters. I didn't look at your picture because nothing is proven by it. I've been playing as long as you and have no mastery levels, and since you never purchased gems or seed packets it seems kind of odd.

If you read my post, you totally disregarded how the locked plant is never at level 10 or mastery levels, while all other plants used are at mastery. The locked plant is EA server based is not able to be hacked because it will always read the true level of the players unhacked plant.  

 

I appreciate you trying to stand up for possible cheaters, I don't report every player that has mastery plants... I report every player that uses all level ten and high mastery plants...  mastery levels of 1 to 5 or 6 might be possible but higher ones make me suspicious.

How many battlez have you done? I have had a streak of 300, 500 and 1200 reset by disconnecting. And my current streak is 3250. So the number of seed packs I have gotten from that is a lot. If someone had spent cash for seeds before battlez even came out then they would be far into mastery by now. 

 

I’m not saying that some of them maybe cheaters I’m just saying that your method for calling them out for high mastery isn’t that good. 

 

If you have played as often and as long as me then you should be sitting on a huge pile of gems. I never spent a single gem before battlez came out and was at about 7k gems. I’m currently at 5k. You should be the same or better as I took about a year off while I played Heroes Charge.
