Thank you all for the reports. I've compiled each player into a list which is now ready for engineering to go through and ban.

This was step 1 in our new onslaught against cheating. We also have a step 2 incoming which we'll be rolling out shortly, but so far we've already identified quite a few cheaters. It's a pain in the butt for everyone who isn't cheating so I do apologize for the inconvenience, but we had to be sure about a few things before we pulled the trigger on these bans.

Glad to hear it... :) I get why ppl are doing it when they hear others are, but it was really busting the game.

Glad to know some hackers were caught :)

It seems the "not tracking raids" part of the bug is fixed and cheaters are now visible and can be banned.

The "no gem deduction" part was still there the last time I tried it with a few raids and has to be fixed. I don't think players can be banned when is the game that don't subtract correctly the gems used.

Update: We are about to roll out phase 2 of our anti-cheating onslaught, but we'll have to take the Guild server down for a couple of minutes. We'll get it back online asap since this tournament is still running.

Looks like that #1 trophy guy from Keeper (GER) has been banned. Great news for everyone Chris, except the cheaters of course. They deserve to be banned.

Great job!!!

It seems the "free resupply" bug is not available anymore :)
I did a couple attempts today and got disconnected. Good job EA!

Now, we will see if the usual big scorers keep on winning brackets alone and doing +500k stars
