Since game results were affected, will the games be unranked?
For instance, in 'A Random Game' (# 133549) I was immediately jumped and eliminated by the the cheaters in question, thus would argue that game results were affected.

Isn't it customary to de-rank games in which cheating has occurred?

Thanks for warning me - that game is now de-ranked and also a couple of others.

Not always, only if we can prove that cheating affected the game. Sometimes it's possible for a game to remain competitive for majority of participants after cheaters get removed, so we judge each on its merits.
Thanks for spotting a game I'd missed somehow! Fixed that now.
