Yes cheating in the game is possible. I'm not going to go into details on how.
It may seem harmless, and at the moment yes it is. People who modify their skill points up to ridiculous levels only really affect you when they come up in your choice of PvP Skirmishes. But you don't have to fight them, just pick someone else.
However - what about if league tables are introduced? Wins/Losses? Teams? When a more complex PvP system is introduced (which is likely soon), the players that exploit a cheat will have an unfair advantage. Therefore these players will (if they're lucky) have their stats lowered to what they should be, or most likely they'll be banned from the game.
IMO - don't cheat. It spoils the game, and you risk getting banned.
