    Buena decisión, pero en verdad haganlo porque hay jugadores muy altos que destrozan a los pequeños y no hay equidad en el juego....

    Yes when someone from Cheaters Unlimited gets 35k medals in one week (which i saw pics of) then that should set off some alarms

    If people have been cheating for so long, and to the extents mentioned, I have to agree hat they should be banned from the game. They could easily re-join, admittedly, but would have to work up through the ranks and levels again, and anyone doing so unfeasibly quickly would be very noticeable. Can those responsible be named, or at least their alliances identified? Thanks for highlighting this issue.

    Once verdicted, can you just put their game ID and alliance here? I think it will be more effective than just roll back their game progress.

    They can't afford to ban players seeing that game play has for the most part slowed drastically since they punished the jumpers..Since the jumpers stopped I had tough times finding wars for the longest..Before that it only to minutes opposed to hrs.and the war selection was a bit fair. But now it's like I'm ranked 200's and I either get wars in the 60's ranking or wars in the 1000's..Very rarely do we get a even fair matchup unlike in the past..When the fix to jumping was simple to fix if Generals didn't like it it's called INVITE OR CLOSE ALLIANCE.
    But that's old news now we have hackers..

    All cheaters should be ban zynga but its good you showed them mercy and just reset their accounts, but who to say they won't try to do it again, you will have to monitor them zynga because i dont want any cheaters attacking my base and so fort, they probably already have you will never know.

    Is there a way to fix PvP mode? I'm being mismatched with players who are completely out of my league.

    Hahaha, just last week I saw someone won 8000 victories in a season.
  • longstreetlongstreet Posts: 1Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star
    If people are that sorry they have to cheat at a game to be 1st in medals, they need more than to have their progress stopped, or banned. Yes, they need to be banned, find a local Gammer's Annoymous group, and really, really needed to get a life. CU, AR, congrats. Your slaves to an online game.
  • ShonShon Posts: 21Registered User, Facebook Connect User Delightful Duckling D

    This is great. Find the cheaters, and slap them on the wrist lol. Zynga has been around long enough to know what they're doing, and they know a slap on the wrist will change nothing. I'm willing to bet not one single person who was cheating will stop. In fact, now that others see they will not lose their account for cheating, what's to stop more people from doing it? It's been how long since Street Racing Zynga? 8 years or so? Have you learned nothing?

    A reply on the jumpers comment..

    The ban on jumping, I believe was to stop due to those jumping to multiple alliances at the end of wars, just to collect loot.

    That inadvertently hurt those jumpers that actually participated in multiple wars in a day, which most likely caused players to quit, so jumping returned along with rules.

    Now, although jumping returned, I believe it is still frowned upon by the makers of this game.

    If you address a jumping problem, and their reply is to stay in one alliance to avoid jumping problems, seems like they are "NOT" all in with jumping as part of the game.

    The game is 2 years old.. From when I started, they added a HQ level and robots, and a bunch of other little stuff, but in the end, the game has not changed very much.

    It takes too long to accomplish everything!

    I see why people cheat! I don't agree with it!

    I just think jumping is the number one fun part if this game and seeing both my offense and defense getting stronger..

    Unfortunately, at the higher levels, it takes too long upgrade, and becomes a very boring game, especially if you are being told to stay in one alliance..

    Reset their game progress? That's it? A slap on the wrist for cheating! This game has just added another issue! E&A has enough issues without adding more! This game is in trouble!

  • Ms_Rock_N_RollaMs_Rock_N_Rolla Posts: 4Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star

    What about the other cheaters? Its a insult and a slap in the face for the gold spenders! I personally agree with "ThePlumber" bann the lot but looks like zynga cant or wont do that, wonder why? Is it because some are ex employees and know the system?

  • Ms_Rock_N_RollaMs_Rock_N_Rolla Posts: 4Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star

    Just another thing, zynga already know who the cheaters are as these clans have been reported, so far 5 clans have been identified and to date they still all play nothing has been done. Makes one wonder wether its worth while reporting?

    the new update is buggy no login on my other account error code 3101 :/

  • 1Lion1Lion Posts: 32Registered User, Facebook Connect User Forum Traveller
    Cheaters should be identified and their accounts and progress deleted.
  • SmokeyCat2SmokeyCat2 Investigator Posts: 391Registered User Social Snowflake

    @JBX2017 I agree with you. It was the best and most exciting aspect of the game. With the new release of the Alliance perks and AXP this reiterates the thought that Zynga frowns on Jumping. It builds the Idea of a Good Alliance is a strong alliance. and gives boosts as long as you stay in it.

    I good friend said recently, "Now every Noob can max out a new account in defense and offense in 4-6 weeks, it took me nearly 2 years!!"

    oh well, you get good and bad with new updates, Always!

  • R1CARDOUKR1CARDOUK Posts: 3Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star

    have come across a few shall we say "ODD" things too. like someone with a lvl 2 war factory with an ION CANNON.. Hmmm.. thought you needed lvl 5 or higher ???

  • SmokeyCat2SmokeyCat2 Investigator Posts: 391Registered User Social Snowflake

    @R1CARDOUK, you can get 900 triangles to get a lev 10 Stealth generator, then a another 900 triangles to get a lev 6 med drone hive, and then another 900 triangles to get a lev 3 Ion cannon. This only can happen if you have a lot of members and very active alliance.

  • nucking1976nucking1976 Posts: 260Registered User, Facebook Connect User Gabby Enthusiast

    im betting the people that are doing this are friends of Zynga or heck maybe even employees that's why they're still in the game say it ain't so Zynga

    Censorship is funny when you speak the ugly truth about someone or something

    no longer playing this game

  • kwadekwade Posts: 1Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star

  • bajingluncatbajingluncat Posts: 5Registered User, Facebook Connect User Loose Cannon
    Ohhh noo we many lost resource and It's hard to ask for troop help. Every new update always error code. Now we expect compensation for this error!
  • callejerocallejero Posts: 1Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star
    Zynga la has cagado, ya no se puede acelerar las construcciones por amigos solo la alianza puede, entonces para que son los benditos amigos?
    Arreglen esto para que todo mi grupo de whatsapp de 253 personas Vuelvan a jugar el juego porque todos están desencantados.
  • Ms_Rock_N_RollaMs_Rock_N_Rolla Posts: 4Registered User, Facebook Connect User Not a Title, but a Star

    Zynga you all are a big joke! You dont need alliances as you can use in game hacks and this game is all about base upgrade and is not a war game. If a player with a level 1 command centre has all units maxed including omega units, then i ask myself what is the point? These so called cheaters have been reported so many times that there web page is now accesible to all! Zynga know about it , have been given screen shots , names of these clans or alliance and have done nothing! So to all that have wasted years, gold and frustration i really feel sorry for you, and dont report or send to zynga as they have done and to date will not do anything! Any other game maker would have banned these cheaters and made sure that every effort is been made to stop new cheaters , not zynga, they will not bann as they need the numbers to stay on facebook. The only people that can take action is us players by reporting zynga to facebook , so that zynga get a **** kicking and maybe then when there funds stop coming in they might take action. To those that use the ingame hacks congrates and looks like you have won!
