    I saw it happen. What a waste for teams to prepare for this all week just to see it stolen by a cheating alliance that can't play fairly

    Would you be able to PM me the name of the Allegiance, so that way I can forward this on to have this looked into?

     

    I've moved this to the appropriate forum in addition, thank you for taking the time to report this.

    Seriously you guys really need to fix your bugs, close your vulnerabilities and ban the cheating players who exploit them.  It is to the detriment of every legitimate player paying real money that these things stand.  In addition to the alliance using a new exploit to be able to start rallies on Casterly Rock before it opened in order to take it, you had a major bug that froze the app for all android devices when going to Casterly Rock during it's opening!  You need to reopen Casterly Rock with fixes for android so alliances can fairly compete for it and those that continue to cheat need to be banned.  Anything less is showing the rest of the players in the Kingdom that you really don't care about fair play or how they get cheated.

    They found a way to use the back end game code to set rallies by coordinates. 
     
    The way it was explained by another is, we can't set a rally on a locked sop because the button doesn't appear. 
     
    But if you can use the coding itself, there's nothing to stop you from cheating.
     
    Please ban that complete alliance and reset that SOP for a later date.

    WB I understand the difficulty in plugging the API to prevent exploitation - but use of the bots and these exploits has to be bannable. Send cheating players and/or alliances to a Bad Sport kingdom or ban them outright. They ruin the game for everyone else. Every other online game I've seen has no tolerance for players doing these shenanigans

    let's be honest, WB isn't gonna ban them, they are paying customers. At this point, they should at least reset the SOP.

    A pretty easy fix for this hack is to be able to set rallies on closed SOPs. If the rally hits before the lock is open, it bounces off like an attack bounces off someone who shielded.  please pass this on to the developers

    That wont really fix, this is actually what happens. They can rallies earlier than everyone else, making them hit right when the SoP opens. This gives them a very valuable 5 minute head start! The fix is to check whether the SoP is locked when the rally request is made instead of relying on the client app to hide the buttons

    Thanks for showing the way, @CH-K6! I think I'm going to start taking videos of everyone using the GotC Assistant and demanding they ban the allegiance and re-run every event. When's the next leaderboard event, do we think?

    Today in K114 we witnessed a new level of bot/cheating. They hacked into the game and were able to set rallies on CR before it unlocked for the opening. This enabled them to have the rallies launch right when it opened, and didn't have to wait 5 minutes. They also were able to send all 4 rallies at the exact same time from each of the accounts. Now, will WB actually do anything about it? Their track record isn't very reasuring.

    Hey everyone,

     

    While I understand you all have issues that you want to report, these issues are unrelated to this one, and should be reported in a separate thread or in a ticket. Please make sure all replies to this topic are related to this issue, as the thread will become unnecessarily disorganized otherwise.

     

    Thank you for taking the time to make Game of Thrones: Conquest better by reporting these issues nonetheless, as it is greatly appreciated!
