The Policy on Cheaters

Replies


  • On another note, how can the guy who was put in place to handle the cheating requests not be answering his messages or responding??? Again, this is an amateurish rollout of a game that could be a money machine. I'm sure EA is going to be ticked off at CG for the losses and screw-ups here.

    One thing you can be sure of, @CG_LucifersDaddy is not avoiding your messages as this would be a strike against him since he'd be technically not doing his job. What must have occurred is that his managers have allowed him to step away, and that is ten-fold worse because it speaks volumes on how great a priority they have placed on this issue.....



    The four posts from Triqui and yours are all dated Jan 29, 2016.

    Perhaps wait a few days for a reply? If a few days have past and there is no news, please PM me and I'll let a developer know the situation. But I assure you that LD doesn't ignore PMs.

    I couldn't access him through PM, but it was my fault I think. I managed to do it later, I'll update as soon as I get an answer.

    It won't happen. Numbers 1 and 2 are just there under the guise of "being tough". It's an idle threat that nobody is scared of. It's like when you were a kid and you were driving somewhere for vacation and you were being bad. They would say "don't make me turn this car around and go back home!", you knew they weren't going to. They can say they will ban people all they want, but really, option 3 is all they will do.

    Yes it is. I haven't spent a fortune on this game like some people claim to have ... But the way things are going. I will be waiting before I drop more cash on this.

    When I play a game I like I don't mind paying something readonable for my enjoyment. But if I see I'm getting shafted I usually leave.

    Still I think there will be enough long term [] to keep this profitable. So it won't hatter they will do what they want .

    It's like my agnoticism, I hope I'm wrong but yea it don't look too good...

    Sorry but can someone explain how people are cheating?

    Thanks for saying that I've been wondering what are the parameters that they're using to say someone is cheating cuz I sure haven't seen any possible way of cheating
  • Lol "ban", "moving to cheater leaderboards"... I'm glad I read that, because so far I thought the policy on cheaters was "hey, let's gift these cool guys a 5* Vader!"
    Also, we miss LD in hoda. He took French leave :(

    I havent heard back from LD since I managed to contact him
  • yea, his profile says he hasn't been on since Jan 28. As a game designed to be played on a daily basis, I suppose its only normal that gamers would want somewhat daily responses as well.

    Anyway, happy to keep waiting patiently for my reply from LD as well. It would be interesting to see the stats of what is being reported and how many people are being dealt with. Although its also possible that they players are just exploiting bugs and not 'cheating' (or is that the same thing?)...
  • I've read in Guild discussions from reliable sources that they are actually punishing people for cheating now so they are starting to deliver on what was promised.

    I'm happy to gear that. They should give publicity to their action, both as deterrent for other cheaters, and to placate those angry about the cheaters

    So no answer yet.

    Has anybody been able to point a possible cheater since they made this change in policy?

    I just did. Seemed to work fine. Don't use "@" before typing the CG and he's like 2nd or third down on the list.

    That was my problem at the begining.

    For what is worth, I got an answer yesterday, LD told me they are investigating the suspect account, which is all I wanted.
  • witch hunt! :sunglasses:, so this is where LD is, another one that jumped of the HODA boat.

    CG is pretty small so if they want to have this game not crash and burn, they're going to have to pull most of the staff to this project I'd believe...

    For? Cheating in arena? Or actual punishment for vader exploit?

    I haven't heard much about the Vader exploit, but I have heard that cheaters have been reported and that they then disappeared from the Arena, so it was deduced that EA took care of it as those players were holding top PVP positions, so their absence was noticeable.

    I have also scoured the web about this to see if there was any chatter about the punishment given and it would seem the bans are either permanent or temporary. How EA/CG determine punishment level is anybody's guess but most important....They are indeed doing something!!

    I got an initial reply like you did, but never got a reply afterwards though so i don't know the results... did you?

    ...not to say its not possible to beat someone 10 levels and 10k power higher than you in arena, but to do so consistently i find quite frustrating. i would like to know for my sanity whether its my team or whether there was some exploit to beat it :/

  • I dont know what players are doing to cheat , but this game is rigged or somthing. There is know skill or character that allows for my oppoinents to attack me as many as 15 times before i ever get a chance to fire. And then when i finally do attack i may go 3/4 times if im lucky!! Before my oppoinent yet again they continue what seems like a non stop attack until all my characters are dead. Anybody else run into this? Im lvl 68 with 7, 6 and 5 star characters with the highest gear level until i reach lvl 70-74

    Poe/ Phasma/ droid synergies or some combinations of the above will ensure that they will have 10 or so turns before you can move. Its very common. Also, different characters have different speeds so you might just have very slow heroes

    Hacker Spotted!! Player discretion advised, pictures may cause anguish or pain!

    Check the #1 guy. This guy comes out of nowhere today, has Sid on blue gears, 8k less power, 5*. See the health of Lumi, she is also definitely low stars and gears. No way he can be first in our server. He does not even have FOTP or Rey who can do one hit. I had got 2nd today, he got 3rd, didn't affect my reward but definitely hurt some player on 3rd. But after my time-zone 6 pm he beat me. I was surprised and since I had battles left I wanted to see his team and I see a noob hacker. He could not even wait to disguise by levelling his players first, or at least get Poe, since we know with Poe you can beat teams with higher SQ power.

    I will report this to EA, but wanted to post in the forum as it will open the eyes of everyone who thinks there is no cheating.

    Players like us spend our time farming and grinding toons to get #1 and hackers like this enable GOD mode and one shoot toon and get prizes, basically they are getting free money. Makes me sad who has spent $40 USD on this game. Will make me think twice before spending more.
