Cheating In Galaxy of Heroes [MEGA]

Replies

  • I like to think about it as one of the only ways anyone was going to actually do anything about the cheating issue. We were told there’s shiny new tools to detect cheating and that they’re devoting resources - this lured us into a sense of trust so that we would continue to use our time and resources on the game. I hope that some good comes from these whistle blowers... they deserve praise, thanks, reinstatement and apologies.

    Our arena shard has been dealing with a likely cheater, we have reported him ans nothing has happened and we haven't heard back, are you guys thinking about adding a replay system? That way we can confirm if he is cheating or possibly were wrong and he somehow beats the best teams with teams that are under geared, modded, and not the current meta
  • Just to avoid any potential forum violations, I am not going to use specific names. But, can we get confirmation that the person who cheated on an alternative account was banned on his main account (on which he didn't cheat), but not on the alt account on which he cheated? Or were both accounts banned?

    Ahnaldt101's video I think perfectly summarizes CG/EA's legal authority to ban the person, regardless on which user account they play the game.

    But, if the alternative cheating account was not concurrently banned with the main non-cheating account, that would support the supposition that CG does not have the technology to detect the cheating as they apparently have not found the cheating account.
  • I guess my one concern is that Bulldog was doing his best to expose infinite loops, cheats, and other broken parts or exploits of this game. He voiced his frustration before about trying to contact the devs only to be blown off. Hence why he went straight to video since they dont ignore the youtubers (Mobile, Ahnald, etc)...
    Theyve gone with a public beta testing program since they lack the manpower to find all the flaws in game. If you want to establish some protocol that's fine and dandy, but you ignored this guy before when he did go straight to the devs.
    I hope there's a happier end to this situation...

    This post is totally useless. I figured people where cheating when fleet battles have become a total cluster kitten. Some people are impossible to beat. But how should I know if they are cheating? They could just bump their def and offense up by just enough to make it look like they are still taking damage.

    This really disappoints me because of the countless of hours I put in the game. It’s all for nothing because devs can’t police their own software. We now have to do their job and report people. It’s just going to be a big cluster kitten

    It's not possible to cheat in that way. Everything you do in offense happens in your client where the server will send you your opponents data. Anything that happens in their client won't get reflected there, just the things your client needs to present you with the opponent fleet (i.e. units, gear of pilots and mods and whatnut).

    In an other hand , if CG/EA was less stingy with in game (particulary for GAC and raid where all player participate for success it with ticket system and where nobody have the same reward), less player reach the step cheating...

    I think CG/EA choice in term of reward motivate some people to cheat...

    Just look this success : Win 10000 times in squad arena; the rewards is only 50 crystals and 5 shards of vador... really for a mean time of 5 years playing this games this is a riddiculous way to reward your player.
  • In what world do you think it's ok to ban someone for making a video? I don't care what your tos says, taking action against someone for something outside the game is absurd.

    You've built a game catered to whales, and you just took out a harpoon gun and started shooting. You deserve the obvious results that will follow.

    The video creator himself thinks he should've been banned for what he did (creating a video):

    There is a thing called ban dodging which is having multiple accounts while one was deemed bannable which is why his main account got struck. Ahnald and Darth Microtransaction both pointed out that every other game ban alt accounts so this is normal behavior

    You can defend bulldog as much as you want but he even he admits he knowingly did a bannable offense, he was just unaware that other accounts you own are also hit as a result

    For someone doing research on ban dodging he missed some key details on its punishment and its not something we can just brush off as "honest mistake"
  • I have no words for this policy! Banning McMole just for reminding you to do your job properly?
    Well done! CG, you have officially earned the titles
    Banana republic
    And

    I think Carrie is happy that she doesn't have to deal with this horrible PR. She got out before they (CG) decided to shoot themselves in the D***... cause they've already shot themselves in the past in BOTH feet.
  • Don't forget that they removed McMole's test account, despite all the labor he was putting in that benefited CG building a community around gameplay, because he expressed a critical opinion of CG publicly once.

    One English word for that is Incompetent.

    It's almost like your describing a company that is under the umbrella of influence called "EA"

    If they, CG, put more time and resources into their games spaghetti code and features instead of policing the forums and YouTube... maybe this hacker/cheater/exploiting problem would happen less and less.
