View Full Version : Cheating/Hacking?
12-14-2011, 09:47 PM
How do you tell if a person is cheating or hacking as opposed to spending thousands of dollars on the game? I was attacked today and naturally looked at the opponents stats and they either spent a lot of money for gold, or are cheating.
You cant really tell most of the time unless they are doing something that is impossible even with the purchase of gold.
One give away though is that cheater really go to the extreme because they can. Large spenders on the other hand still somewhat limit themselves, so they will not get too crazy with their spending.
For instance, an obvious hacker ive seen came out of nowhere and in 2 days has like 11000 atk and def. (this was over a month ago and that was far above anyone else). He also did this through the use of units bought with cash and not actual gold units. His units were probably worth over 200 million alone. Then he also had a base with about 50 territories in it. He had the max of every building that was available to him and they were all levels 7-10. He probably had over half a billion dollars worth of stuff and thousands of gold worth put into expansions and instant upgrades. I guess he thought that if he didnt directly buy buildings or units with gold, people wouldnt suspect him.
Also anyone that has 0 dollars is most likely banned. They still show up on allies lists and rivals lists sometimes though.

I just added it up and it amount to over $800 spent that I know of through weapons. The person also has weapons that I don't show in any of my lists, and the are in higher multiples so I would think it is a loot. Also, they have units that are not available until higher levels?
I know some people have units that arent available until higher levels or they have them without the required buildings. So far im not sure if that is some sort of cheat, or just a glitch in the game.

Could they be getting them as a drop when they complete a task/quest?

As far as I know, the dropped loot is different than gold items.

Contact the support staff if you suspect someone of cheating. The link can be found in the help section. They will investigate and ban the person if found guilty.
Cheaters normally don't have any gold items. They have all money items and high level upgrade buildings. They also level up very quicky, if you see someone jump over 10 levels a day, he probably cheated.
If people are banned, they won't appear on your rival list.
