  • Event cheaters again

    Leaderboard is dominated by cheaters again. in just 10 minutes they have hundreds of thousands of xp. I bet all that comes from hacked archive and speedups. TinSoldier BHG_Muet permanent bans are in order. These players ruin all the fun for the legit players.

    #1 has over 17 million xp now. This blatant cheating needs severe punishment, and it needs to be done now.

    TinSoldier xp for speedups is also wrong, I used 1h and I got 300 xp points, instead of 5.

      This is totally ridiculous and too obvious

        I think you got wrong screenshots. We have different rewards during this event.

      this is not cheating. it is a mistake in the algorithm that counts the XP for each speedup. Maybe they made the wrong calculation and multiplied instead of per hour but per minute!!
      i used 5 days speedups in total and my chest went straight to level 9!

        1 hour = 60 mins
        24 hours = 1440 mins
        1440 mins * 5 XP = 7200 XP per 1 day of speedup
        I spent around 4,5 days of speedups and I am at 32150 XP total (with 4 milestones completed). So it makes sense now.
        the correct should have been 24 Hours * 5 = 120XP per day of speedup....

          wrathchild_78 so let's do the math for #1 again, 17M at 7200 xp per day, 17M/7200=2361, that's almost 6.5 years worth of speedups. Others on leaderboard have spent close to 100 days worth of speedups, and this is just first couple of hours of event. Do you really think they have saved that much? Or are they hacking archive?

          I've seen a video on youtube showing some kind of memory editor on android, that they were using to multiply speedups. It literally took seconds to get thousands of them.

              Oh these event have always been a display of how rampant cheating is in this game. Even though they've made genuine strides in the last few months, I see far fewer people upgrading everything these days for instance. However, it's always good for a laugh to see one or two people at the top of the leaderboard within hours of an event starting that have more points than the thousands of others in the group combined.

              I like the event structure but I resigned myself to never doing anything but normal gameplay and taking whatever that gives. Sucks that I'll probably never get another event building again with this system but that toothpaste is never going back in the tube.

              TS has mentioned BHG's second game is just around the corner. Makes one wonder if things will be going back to the utter lawlessness of just a few short months ago when it arrives?

                I doubt most there care about the event and are instead cheating to advance in the game... but as a side effect they show up on this leaderboard list.

                So in some ways this is a great event, in that speedup cheaters either have to not cheat a lot for 18 days OR they risk having a spotlight reveal their lame ways. Imagine their faces when they load the leaderboard screen to see their name in bright lights... I hope this surprise brings them sadness and despair.

                  Not as if anyone needs really needs more confirmation that they are cheats but look a few random global leaderboard leaders up on dominations.pl Their progress graphs show it clearly.

                    They removed one 17 million xp cheater, and now have 2 more! They are like the APC! Useless really (don’t help Dominations make money) but they just keep coming!

                    Every million xp is equivalent to 139 days worth of speed ups. I wonder if they can run a query on how many speedups were sole to a single individual and calculate the max xp from that and ban anyone above that number?

                      I agree with Sponge, this appears to be cheating. @BHG - Why not make more Events like the Saratoga Event? There were no run away scores in that event, and it was more skill based. Come on...make these events fair and fun! 5 XP for a quick victory, and 25 XP for clearing a base. XP for each General defeated.

                        Top player is almost 25 million now. Second best is 20 million. Top player did over 9 years of speedups.

                        Edit: Now at 42 million. LOL. Like that isn’t cheating!

                          The dev is removing the cheaters one by one, our voice is heard. Guess the event is a good way to flush out these cheaters. Let’s keep the pressure on.

                            #100 on global leaderboard has 1,5M xp, that's about 208 days of speedups. And this is only few days into the event. I'm quite sure entire leaderboard are cheaters, there might be a random player or 2 that used all their speedups, but such players shouldn't progress much anymore. Anyone with millions of xp and constantly adding more is clearly cheating. TinSoldier where are those instant bans?
