Cheating

Hi, I recently paid up and went premium. I'm not happy however when I start a game and see someone with 2000 ( yes two thousand ) troops. I have taken a screenshot of this. Sort it out please.

Yes I agree. I enjoy this game and don't mind the alliance-making in order to trick you (have been burned too many times - but that is the game) but the game is ruined by this kind of cheating. There has to be some way for you to apply the rules you stipulate.

troubling centaur3862 & Brent Parker  is a blatant cheater clearly running two accounts used the brent parker account to attack me every turn regardless of how obvious it was that it didn't help his cause i.e. 5 troops vs 25 just to weaken me for the other account this ruins the game 

I played against someone today who started off with 999 troops.
Stu Thunder, 15 minutes ago and player attacked no one and added 10 men to the board each round from the beginning. Blue player, Asian lady icon.
Happened to me today. He added 15 troops the first few turns. Then 5th turn gave him self 500 and kept going up from there.. I can live with the teaming up but that just blatantly add thousands of troops and give no one else a chance how is that even fun for them. I really like this game a lot but that part needs to be fixed please see images attached

The Hell! How can people do that... and why isn't SMG doing anything to stop it?

After a week of playing I've come to the conclusion that the game is corrupt and you can't beat certain people who just want to cheat.  Such a shame because it's otherwise a great game.

 

I had several cases of people having 2 - and in one case 3 (GM) - accounts, that covertly, until a point and pretty obviously at the end assisting a player to win. After loosing I became a spectator and I saw the fake one just sitting back and getting beaten by the other one.

Several things can been done for this to stop:
1) Have a validation system for those who host to be able to have the option to accept only validated players
2) Have a player "ban" system similar to the "friend" system
3) Have an in game forum
4) Have a player to player rating system
5) Have a way to report a game that you believe cheating took place
6) Have a well defined official set of  rules of what constitutes fair play and what is cheating
That is what I have come up with, I'm sure people can add more and better suggestions than these but for sure something needs to be done!!!
Personally I am disgusted to see "Experts" and "GMs" out there who can't play RISK to save their life!!!

 

I agree. Raul Andres Torres just used some kind of game exploit against me. I am in mid turn about to take his 2 troops with my 19 when the game "disconnects". After several retries, it reconnects and I now have -17 troops and he has 19. Clever, but pointless. I exited the game. I expect it is some social reject who has no other way to feel pride than to exploit a game for ranking. Sad, really. SMG should definitely put controls in place to prevent this. It is easy enough, technically and shameful that they aren't trying to fix it. I definitely agree with the player rating idea and the ability to report cheating within the game.

Dude, that wasn't anybody cheating... it was caused by SMG not being able to code an online game that can stay reliably connected lol!


They have promised to solve this issue soon - lets see if they do...
