The Policy on Cheaters

Replies

  • To all you Muppets who are against moving cheaters to their own server, this company is not trying to save refunding players and here is why.

    P2W and cheaters are two completely different means to the same end, you are either one or the other but never both. If a player is a hacker, then they don't spend money on the game you retards! They get the same benefits and achieve the exact same things in game but the strategy and fun is taken out.
    This company is not against banning hackers because they fear refunding, because they will never ever need to refund hackers as they don't spend money.
    Moving cheaters/hackers to their own server is the perfect and right decision and perfect punishment as it takes the fun out of the game even for them... All whilst EA/CG LOSES NOTHING.
    Remember this is a F2P game, don't complain that the hackers are "still having the same fun" in their cheater server whilst not spending anything. I guarantee you that they are not because beating their own kind is not half the fun, but what they are entitled to for downloading this game.

    Just please make the "CheaterBoard" public. Nothing like a good 'ol public shaming:)

    +1

    Let's carve a big H on their foreheads for hacker like Aldo Raines in Inglorious Basterds did to the National Socialists with swastikas. Lol

    Edit: Had to call them by their full name as the short form is automatically censored. Who knew?

    This is actually a very good Idea, I'd love to see what effect this has on the hacking populations.
  • Anyone whining about option 3 needs to relax as it does not directly effect you in any way, shape or form.
  • I saw something interesting today. A Kylo used his AOE every turn an I hadn't attacked him. Now either the enemy AI is being buffed, or someone has hacked that Kylo.

    Love this idea

    They will be moved to a different leaderboard that contains only cheaters or exploiters.

    I can't even believe this is an option. I can see the first 2 depending on the severity but to say that it's ok and you will now only compete against others who cheat and exploit? Not cool. It's like saying that criminals who got arrested for robbing banks will be moved to a special city where only other bank robbers live and are able to rob the local bank..is that really a punishment?

    That's called jail.

    Or Australia

    Well at least something is being done.
    But why put cheaters / exploiters on a different leaderboard if you are going to ban them?
    Is this just for the people who are being temporarily banned instead of perma banned?

    @FakeRobbo you make a very valid point and that makes a lot of sense. Hopefully the cheaters get bad karma from trying to beat other cheaters. Though it would be interesting to see what the cheating pvp would look like
  • Skip the song and dance and just ban them. Get aggressive about it and ban them early. If they just get a new device ID (emulators) ban again, ban the play account, ban (provided clear evidence) and just be adults about it. They don't need their own server and they don't need this game. Let them move on to the next target.

    That is for people purposefully hacking with modded files, etc. for those exploiting a bug, just patch the bug and remove the benefit if gained with intent (like clearing your allies list a few dozen times)
  • Oh good you're cracking down on cheaters. Does that mean you'll be fixing your game and not pairing 20k teams against 17.5k teams at tier 9 in GW then? That sounds good to me, bravo.

    LOL. Dumbest idea I've ever heard. So we are going to let hackers continue in the game? When a dev takes such a lax response towards hackers, why would anyone want to play legit? Why be a whale and spend $2000 when your modded game has hereos that one shot everyone? Who cares what leaderboards you are in - no one even knows how many leaderboard they are in or the name of their shards. If i knew I could play the game with godmode/gem hacks/whatever hacks there are out there, I'll just not spend a single cent and just hack. I'll get to see all the content.

    And its so obvious why this option is available - Beacuse Google Play instant refunds ANY PLAYERS whos accounts are banned, regardless of the reason why. Thus, if players have spent before, EA being greedy is not going to want to lose that money. So they get around it and keep their account active, but in another server. No refunds can be given. Hurray!


    This is similar to what Marvel Puzzle Quest does with cheaters. They don't ban them, rather they "sandbox" there account which allows them to continue to cheat all they want. The problem is, they can't win any rewards from any events. PVP they can fight against someone, but the person they beat loses no points. They also don't show up as someone to battle on pvp. So in essence, they are playing the game by themselves.

    This is not the "dumbest idea ever", in fact it is a great idea. Putting all cheaters together means they are just battling themselves, no one is caught in the cross fire.

    Exactly, what I wanted to say but you was the first :D

    Perfect explanation, 10 points :)

    All the modders on the same server! I love it.
    Maybe it's a good idea to create a sticky thread with an explanation what cheaters/modders can do and can't do. From what I've heard it's near impossible to cheat on defense. Yet if you search the forum, most people accusing people of cheating are talking about a defense situation. If you clear that up, it will save you time looking through messages like that.
  • Hey LD, good to see you here!

    I love the idea of moving them to a cheaters leaderboard, and just watch them swimming around in their own filth, Brilliant!

    You could get to see who the king of the cheaters is, and the winner gets .....

    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    BANNED!


    I can see you sat there watching them, and tormenting them for their sins...

    you could kind of twist it to be like a room 101 for these guys.

    maybe slip in negative shards as a reward, if you get a -1 Poe shard, then it deducts 1 Poe shard from them.
    if that drops him a star level then so be it.

    Seriously, for those who do not know LD, he was very well regarded on the HODA forum for his wit, intelligence and fairness.

    I believe you have found your perfect roll LD,

    but don't be a stranger, post here as often as you can, i miss your posts, and good luck with the hunt.

    oh, and i still wash my dragon every night, but i will also polish, my Vader till his little black helmet sparkles. Looking forward to making him a 5* Vader soon hopefully.

    Ok HATERS..
    Instead of crying and whining, why dont you try to report one???? Kids these days are big talks with no actions at all..

    Can I suggest one thing? If that crying babies wrongly accused someone, they will get 1st warning, then 2nd warning, then temporary ban and lastly permanent ban..sounds fair right??

    Believe me you need this with so many kids out there..

  • P2P here. I +1 the ideas espoused by the Devs.

    Bans still in place, but I'm more or less imagining the server they're going to make is for people who exploit, and don't straight up cheat.

    Which is still hilarious.

    All 3 ideas are great! Keep up the good work guys

    Only $4000 on upgrades?? You clearly need to step up your game then. In SWGOH, that doesn't even pay for a 7* team with synergy!!! Listen, go down to the bank and take out a 2nd mortgage on your house and get your team right, then we'll talk.....

    How would you know?
  • I think it will be funny as let them destroy each other lol

    I agree all the cheaters cheating each other. Priceless.
  • You know I faced a team that was either a cheat team or a severe glitch in GW yesterday. It was hell. I will tell you that after I took it down it felt great. If it was a glitch I stuck it to the glitch. If it was a cheater I made it by them.

    That said in PVP that would not have happened because that team was immortal just about.
  • Good News everyone!
    LD joined the SWGoH team. ( I bet you were lurking!)
    Welcome :)

  • Look at all the hackers crying about being stuck on their own servers.
  • This is awesome! I am download mod pack just to get to that server. Can I request to be sent there upfront?
  • So how do I report a cheater? Today in the arenas I was in 4th spot after beating someone. Then they turned around beating me in 30 seconds. They were 3 levels lower than me and at 20370 power where mine is at 24090. All they used was lum, vader, phasma, sidiuos, and jedi consular.

    Now here we go. A bunch of people that suck with no strategy are crying "cheater" when they get beat. One clown even said someone was cheating in GW against him. Now every time someone doesn't win they are going to be crying cheater because they don't know how to play. Hilarious.
