  • They might be banned... but the metro which they have won with all their cloned troops will stay. And we could've easily defended against the clone hordes if we actually had access to our accounts. Now we pay the price, yet both the alliances abused the bug, only we get to suffer for it. Epic ! Well, seeing how customer…
  • yet, I don't see a certain alliance being punished for exploiting it. Somehow, there is underlying proof that my alliance has done wrong, yet not enough proof (or some other excuse) that the other alliance did not. However, they got a tower from us using this bug, and are now sending a mass attack using those horrors and…
  • I did NOT mess with the game; please stop attempting to put it into a situation where you see me as someone who broke into the game code in some way. How do you think I found about this bug? Obviously through natural means, through my daily troop trasnfer I noticed something didn't add up. Since most people have kept it…
  • You have to understand, everything you say can be argued from the other end. Example: "Unless i am mistaken, there was never a thread on NOT to clone the troops either. " What rules, where. What property have I taken in this example? No one besides GGS has robbed me in this case. Should I sue them? Look at the rules, there…
  • Excellent! Now point me to the section that the bug exploiters have violated that clearly states that they couldn't do that. This is the original terms of service agreement that everyone has signed. No ambiguity is allowed. I'll save you some time: there isn't a single point out there that would refer to this precisely. It…
  • And I would like for GGS to publicly apologize for all the commotion they've caused and for unfair bans. Not only did they NOT stop the situation from happening. They've encouraged exploitation by offering extra promotions during the time the bug was open. Many gaming companies (Examples: Riot, Blizzard) do not blame their…
  • That's the point, the original example is great, but doesn't apply to this scenario at all. There is no theft. There is not property damage. There is just an extra function added to the game, which many people have exploited. Some got caught, many did not. Now those many are abusing the bans and launching attacks while the…
  • That's the point, the original example is great, but doesn't apply to this scenario at all.
  • This is the clear picture that many people see (whether they used the bug or not). I am just expressing the opinions of others, since not too many have the guts to even speak about it out of fear of getting permabanned for speaking their mind: 1. Oh we have a bug that people are exploiting, let's not stop the game,…
  • And the rules aren't so greatly written regarding situations like these. And again, this is not advantage over others. I did state that everyone that i attacked, knew of this bug; not everyone on the server. Sorry if you misinterpreted my writing. They even stated that "everyone they KNEW were using the bug" would be…
  • Point is, make any hypothetical example that would sound incriminating, but you can't compare it to the situation at hand. Do a rollback, refund all rubies, problem solved, no harm done. THAT would be fair
  • Great example! It's like the one they used in movies "you wouldn't download a car". However, I'll give you another example that better describes the picture You're walking down the street and notice a FLASHING sign saying "free cars from company that went under" leading to a car with the keys in the ignition. Obviously a…
  • Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't know you were all-knowing being who KNEW that not everyone else knew it was a bug. People knew it was a bug, but it never fell under any category for rule breaking . It clearly states that the bug should give you the advantage over the other players. ... except, they can use it too, and you won't…
  • Our alliance lost a tower in green because another alliance abused this bug. We are all fair game here and will overlook this as it was fun throwing around troops all over. So yes, we were actually affected badly by it, but it was still fun.
  • Lets be very clear here. I am almost 100% positive that GGS WANTED people to exploit the bug. How else do you explain putting 3 ruby events (1 at 100%), and an armorer tent for almost the ENTIRE TIME, this bug was there? And now you punish others? Please, lets have some fairness in this game.
  • Oh no, you misunderstand. I am not complaining about just my ban, I'm complaining about GGS's treatment of their players as a whole. This is a criticism forum after all, am I not free to suggest a different tactic regarding this situation?
  • Again, wrong, I'm not saying I couldn't do this. I'm saying EVERYONE KNEW THEY COULD DO THIS, and could, if they wanted to. And I already quoted their rules, you should not be so ignorant and read above.
  • wrong, what should've really happen was a global rollback. However, GGE instead of doing that, put in armor market while KNOWING that the bug was at place, thus giving the option to people to abuse it even more. There won't be a rollback because many people cashed out during this bug, and GGE doesn't like to lose money so…
  • But it's not cheating, it's merely using what the game had to offer at the time. I understand it would be cheating, if I was the only one who could do it by unconventional means, such as a hacking program. HOWEVER. This was all part of the game.
  • I would like to clarify, based on the newly posted rules: "3. Bugusing / Scripting The gain of an advantage over other players by exploiting a bug in the game is strictly prohibited. The use of a program as an interface between player and game is prohibited. Any other form of automatically-generated information for…
