    For what you say happened, it would have to be someone that hacked the GGS database, not individual accounts. There is no game mechanism that allows RV's, with troop complement, to be exchanged. Profiles being deleted would be the same. I suggest you gather some solid proof of what happened, and contact support.

    support contacted, but another alliance lost 7 profiles already

    and as written, some RV´s was taken from one and given to another.

    for some reason it seems to follow a certain account, and GGS have promised to track IP addresses to the other alliance members, or so I have been told.

    I just wrote here to inform as many as possible, we don´t have a communication tree, and I just hope people read this and perhaps could give more info to support, should they experience something similar themselves.

    Are you sure that these people weren't giving out their keys, and then they in turn gave the RVs away?

    not possible, all RV´s was taken from one in ice and given to someone who was already RV full in ice, and all troops were intact in the RV´s.

    and as mentioned, 7 members from another alliance lost castles.

    That must be true, since we know it is impossible to guess someone's password, or use a brute force logger script, or use key-logger software on someone else's computer, etc...

    Did you count all their RVs and determine they were full, or you just assuming?

    Is it possible they attacked and captured the RVs... That seems like the most likely thing, and you are just trying to play it off as they are hacking.

    I highly doubt the guy is a hacker, and we haven't been given any proof, or real strong evidence of him hacking.

    how can you have 30 RV´s in ice (the player who got them came after it was altered to only 15 RV´s in ice)

    and how could he get the RV´s with troops and all, no fight? the one who lost the RV´s had 2000 troops hidden in them, they were intact when the other guy got them, how is this possible?

    If those things happened, just as you are saying (which is hard to believe), then it's the game being buggy - definitely not supposed to work that way.

    Ok, so my next question is why did he have 2k troops in there? Just happened to have them stationed in there...

    My alliance has also been the visit of hackers, we have lost three accounts. The hacker logged in and sended around the password to several alliances. Two ofthe acounts lost their outpost. So it is definitely a hacker on SKN1

    it's a shame because it's quite rare to have thirty RV's because you can only have 15 RV's. But a while ago, you could have 30 RV's sew it is a pity that the player may not get back all the RV's.

    Ok, but where is the proof? So far it is just stories of it happening, we need some sort of proof to determine that it is in fact a hacker. Are you sure these people simply didn't give out their passwords and they reaped the benefits.
