    If you get caught just jump on alt to avoid the lol 3day ban.

    Continue as normal.

    I have a feeling that if @Andrew @Neilk don't address this issue it will create a mass exodus if it hasn't already.

    So what's the message here? You can exploit on a massive scale, the punishment will just be a 3 day character ban so I can login to my alt to duck the ban?

    Is this some sort of perverse marketing strategy to get everyone to create alt armies?

    Some of you are politicizing cheating.

    Think about that.

    Both sides involved are. Cheaters and associates are deflecting and of course the other side is pushing an agenda beyond the ethics of cheating.

    I don't normally get worked up about the politics in the game; holdings change hands, nuts are cupped, allegiances change but ultimately nothing really changes or matters besides what we make of it. Though exploiting on a large scale amongst multiple people is massive cause for concern. Reverting them to 100 stats is a significant punishment but the slap on the wrist 3 day bans with permission to altfall is an atrocious practice from BPG and shouldn't be left to stand. It's a weak deterrent for future exploiting and sets a precedence of leniency for intentionally harming the game.

    How many was your clan involved with?
    --- Post updated ---
    except AV banned people regardless of who they were. They did not allow some people to cheat 3 or more times and slap them on the wrist. Clear bias here for a number of reasons with on being the guys in question have provided a steady revenue stream too what has to be just barely afloat still. Losing even more revenue would hurt and they are afraid to risk.

    I think the stat punishment is pretty significant, but I also think circumventing a ban (regardless of what the ban was for) should result in an extension or perma.

    So if they made millions on alts with those stat pots get caught on main the main takes a stat hit, 3 day ban ends, logs on alts gets gold buys stat pots gets stats back. A good punishment if it had more with it across all accounts.

    I agree with you, but if BPG followed those rules they'd lose like 1/3rd of their active playerbase LMAO

    Most of the names on this recent list have been banned multiple times for almost the same thing but they know BPG wont perma ban them because they're friends or they just don't want to lose half the player base.

    Exploit on, no problem only a 3 day ban. :)

    Go look on the ban hammer these guys have been banned multiple times. Alts count as the same person just fyi.

    Lets be honest...

    You guys thought you had some free holdings lined up, and ate shit.

    Lets be even more honest...

    You were tipped off to this ban wave and dropped in accordance, only to get shitcanned.

    Good thing they reverted those characters so they can't stat crutch anymore, amiright? Oh wait... it didn't make a difference.

    I think this is partially true to some extent. I think the population peaks and lows have their cycles that coincide with bigger patches. When I stopped playing (about a month after launch) seemed pretty active but it was really hard to tell since I don't play nearly as much as I did years ago to truly gauge an active population.

    Now coming back to the game it still seems pretty active on the siege part (probably picked the wrong time to come back as server wars are fuckin balls for the soul). Which had me wondering of what you said if any game had every completely shut down because they banned 1/3 of the population lol. Still pretty sad though that they don't ban in fear of funding.

    Some say the amount of money Sero owes to student loans could buy a round trip to the moon.
