    Hmm, this explains why my arena rank has stabilized lately. Went from battling back up from outside top-100 daily to mid-50s with only a mod upgrade and one more t12+ piece.

    Thanks CG.

    Same here. I was lingering in the 300-450 range for months and overnight I was scraping by in the 750 neighborhood. A week later, i'm somehow back in the 300-500 range.

    How are they cheating? Like i haven’t noticed anything.

    I think there's a way to put crystals in your account.
    I've also heard about people who can give their team infinite health, or instakill.
    No idea how though. They should put their skills to better use.
    #CloneHelmets4Life...VICTORY!!!! :smiley: "I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere." The more you tighten your grip, CG/EA, the more whales will slip through your fingers (and go F2P or quit).
  • Very much appreciated, better news than any road ahead. Thank you for this!
  • Although it doesn’t get rid of the arena discord monopolies it’s def a huge step forward. Thanks for the search and destroy LD

    Holly cow, a friend of mine just reported one from our fleet shard <3
    "Justice demands retribution" *sinister laugh*

    edt.
    I dont understand how anyone can cheat in this game but if its posible i would like a permanent ban for those who do that .
    Guy from my shard can finish any battle ina couple of seconds doesnt matter how good your fleet is.

    Putting what you're calling it aside, it shouldn't remove them.
    The CGDF is recruiting. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH

    some people says "we get small rewards for if we report cheaters and if they will be ban" , is this correct @CG_LucifersDaddy ? coz i got nothing for banned a cheater who i reported and responded from lucifer
    You shouldn't need a reward for being a decent person. Just sayin'. Also of the three that have been removed, I've never received reward.

    Other than getting them gone :)
  • Kudos! Gotta catch 'em all! :wink: Make sure to repost for your guilds, folks.
  • OH YEAH baby, LD is on the case, Please extend the purge to fleet arena and happy hunting!
  • Thank you, @CG_LucifersDaddy. I know how hard you work to keep our servers clear and appreciate it.

    What are proper steps to washing a blaster?

    Ask Finn, the guy has cleaned countless blasters in many many secret FO places.

    Finally
  • And per usual, if you have any questions or concerns regarding cheating or banned accounts in the game please message me directly on the forums
    Yes, the prices some of us have to pay for packs/crystals is ridiculous! I don’t agree with people cheating but I can see why...

    Maybe show us a sign of good faith @CG_LucifersDaddy @CG_SBCrumb @CG_Carrie and reduce store prices? I pay $159.99 Australian dollars for a vault as an example. That’s a significant amount compared to the average median salary in Australia, and yes I know Apple controls the conversion % but c’mon man, that’s just some plain ol’ corporate legal cheating!
  • Yes! Fry those cheating peeps @cg_lucifersdaddy !!
  • The removal from arenas is a separate task. We felt the priority was to get as many of these hackers out of the game as quickly as possible.

    Once we've finished the sweep we will evaluate the need for more actions to knock them out of shard top spots.

    LD

    Don’t worry the shards will adjust on their own and the banned accounts will continue to fall into oblivion.

  • this is just for show and theatre. ea/cg isnt permabanning the people who cheated. they even admit that they arent.

    just when i thought ea/cg was doing the right thing they basically applaud the cheaters. very sad to see that these guys who cheated arent perma banned.

    very disturbing and i dont think i will be spending any more of my hard earned money. not because the cheaters but because when the cheaters got caught they really didnt get punished
  • This is much better than "your vader will be locked at 5* while non-cheaters only have him at 4*".
  • Why dont you try investing all that time and money into FIXING TWs. I expect some peeps to cheat. One entire section of YOUR game is broken. And you guys are worried about someone selling their EA account. Brilliant. As usual.

    Can you post your sources?
  • What about the Guilds who are dropping their lowest members so they can stack against a much weaker Guild in TWs assuring them a voctory. Isnt that cheating? Oh wait. You could care less because it doesnt cost YOU anything. Unlike whem someone buys an account from a person who get disgusted with EA and quits so they sell their account to recoup their losses for investing in a game the devs dont take care of.
  • ... The Carpenters? A Rock Band?

    I was wondering if anyone else caught that.

    Are these bans permanent?

    For the most part yes.

    In the past we've tried to rehabilitate these types of abuses with intricate and severe account adjustments... but with so many this go round we're just going to a perma-ban.

    We may entertain reevaluations in a few months, but I can not emphasize enough how low of a priority it is to set aside time to accommodate cheaters. They cheated, they're gone.

    LD

    To respond to a few comments above, here is a quote from LD about the perma-ban.
    what an ugly thing to say... does this mean we're not friends anymore?
