Magnetism Cheaters are Ruining the game

[ Edited ]
★★ Newbie

Hello guys,

 

We have all seen magnetism cheaters over and again. In the past, our club would just tolerate cheater clubs and move on. But this thing is becoming repetitive and so profound that every second war, we are facing cheaters. Non-stop magnetism attacks, crazy amounts of score, crazy amounts of war resources. It is really not rocket science to judge whether a club is clean or full of cheaters.

 

Me and my club members have been reporting such clubs but seriously, what does it take to ban such clubs in time? Why does it take so much time for EA to act? What sort of proof would satisfy them to believe whether a club is playing clean or cheating?

 

Last night we got matched against this club that had 20 players ranging from level 20 to 90ish. ALL members had their favorite attack as magnetism. ALL had unbelievable average war scores. We knew the moment we saw their scores, "Here comes another cheater club".

 

I immediately sent a report to EA and I believe my other club-mates sent one too. EA had 10 hours to respond to the report. But just the generic automatic email replies and nothing. Just in the first hour of the war, we are looking at 500,000+ score and our whole team dead. Just tell me what sort of war resources are required to put down such a ridiculous war score? Is too tough to understand that they are cheating? Just see the screenshot ..

 

So EA is going to investigate ... how long? 10 hours before the war started and then throughout the war, we are simply getting beaten up while EA is "investigating". What really is EA investigating? What mystery is EA trying to solve here? If you do not have enough work-force to monitor cheaters, then employ more work-force. But seriously, it is ridiculous that you need more than 48 hours to figure out that someone is cheating.

 

How long do you think your "customers" are going to wait? What sort of patience do you expect from your honest players? To me, I'm done with this cheater-infested game. I'm not spending a dime until EA takes ownership of their game and kicks the cheaters out. I used to regularly buy Premium Pass but this time didn't feel like even spending $5 for the pass. I will now just play at a slacking pace, without worrying about wars, contests or anything else.

 

EA, your customers want a faster solution. The moment a club is reported, we expect to see some action within a few hours, not in a few days. What is the point of kicking out the cheaters once they are done the damage? What purpose does it serve to a club that is playing honestly? Your investigation is not worth anything if it is done 15 days later.
