New Cheater Report:

User is: So Nyeo Shi Do

Its an obvious cheat on turns 1 and 3.

The in game replay crashes after turn 1.

The wit counts are impossible. Watch turn 3 for the most convincing evidence.

OMG. That’s a lot of wits. Not a very brilliant cheater. It’s so obvious :slight_smile:


#266

Yeah he might be :fluffy: to be so obvious

He was playing his ranking games and was awarded 20 points.
I have never seen the game server award 20 points.


#267

As the league drags on, the points are greater, you tend to earn a lot more points. I think.


#268

Been a while I didn’t play any league game, but isn’t 20 point actually the normal amount gained?

Yeah, for Super Titans. In Gifted, it’s like 10 to 12. In Fluffy, it’s around 7 or 8, I think.

Could be that its normal under the right situations and more frequent for some players. I just don’t remember ever seeing that myself. Much more common to see 10-15 awarded in my league games.


#271

A huge discrepancy in hidden ranking can reflect a higher number for points.

That may effect part of it, but I remember when A&A introduced the new league points system. You get more points for a win against a higher ranked player in the division (as opposed to a lower ranked player). An you lose less points to a higher ranked player (as opposed to losing more points to a lower ranked player).

I think the hidden ranking matches player together, but league points come from position in the league standings. I don’t think there necessarily is a congruence. If there is, it is small.

@Mag!cGuy;;
It depends, really. When you are higher in the league you get less points for a win, lower in the league, you get more points for a win. That is how I understand it. I’ve been getting 15-20 in Masters.

I find a cheater, id B414_|!
in 1v1 gifted league, Round Smoke Division, current rank 15;
here is the replay:
outwitters://viewgame?id=ahRzfm91dHdpdHRlcnNnYW1lLWhyZHIVCxIIR2FtZVJvb20YgICAgI2n3wgM

The in-game replay crashed during the 1st turn, and in his second turn I saw 3 boosted soldiers, it’s not hard to do a wit count to realize that the guy is cheating. Replay shows the cheater spent 9 wits in the first round.

The way I beat the cheater is rather simple, just tell him I will let the game rot, and the cheater cannot afford it but quit, because cheaters want to defeat more honest players but they have only 5 game slots. Why? because cheaters can be kicked out of the game at any time, so they won’t spend any money on it, and there seems to have no cheat on game slots.

:cool: Brilliant! I wish I had though of that :stuck_out_tongue:


#275

I just got matched up with this same cheater also (B414_|!), and my in-game replay also crashed on the first turn. When I skipped the replay, I saw that he had somehow managed to build a Bramble, take root (already 8 wits), then proceed to plant at least 15 thorns (covering every space I can see, so I suspect in fact the whole board might be covered!), and used a thorn to hit one of my soldiers. That’s a minimum of 24 wits, not including the thorns he had to plant to get into my view. Not too bad considering he should have only had 8 wits on turn 1!

Hope he gets banned promptly. When he does, does the game get voided including any league point changes?

#276

No. It’s unfortunate, Alex and Adam can’t change the league standings or give back lost points.


#277

Stall the game for as long as possible. If he gets banned during the game, he’ll time out, resulting in him losing the game.


#278

OK, good tip. Will draw the game out as long as possible. Hopefully it doesn’t take too long to get this player banned.

GC ID - Leonyyyy

He is currently cheating on glitch. By his second turn he has visibly used a minimum of 15 wits. I will post replay, but I have asked him to resign. I did send screen shots and explain situation in the DL forum, and they agree he is cheating by at least 4 wits (could be more in fog). Hopefully he can get banned quickly as he has added about 4 wins in the last 2 hours so apparently done aren’t noticing. It’s funny though. He’s using adorables, so he spent money to get banned.


#280

He’s wit hacking. Wait 3 days at a time to send your turn so when he gets banned, he’ll time out and you win
