I've been complaining directly to Etermax for over a year now of a new type of exploit or cheat that I'm noticing at LEAST 25% of the "people" I'm playing are doing. It's usually about a THIRD of all games where my opponent is doing what I'm going to talk about below.
Here's how it works. Tell me if this sounds familiar:
The game goes fine until round 2 is over, then it's CRICKETS: Your opponent is nowhere to be found. If they get 36 hours before having to answer again, they will wait the entire 36 hours. They take it literally to the last possible second, then play. That's why I put "people" in quotes above, they have to be using a bot to do this. Even if you play immediately after they finally do, they're back into ghost mode and gone for another 24 hours or whatever unbelievably generous time Etermax allows them for EACH and EVERY turn before they are forced to play or forfeit.
It's incredibly frustrating and I believe THAT is the goal . . . to get you to quit. The reason they start this after the second round is because quitting after the 2nd round costs you a loss and grants them a win that counts along with the coin prize and ranking increase they enjoy.
I've been reporting everyone who does this. Support said they are looking into it but it's been WAY too long and it's still going on. What's worse now is that with the crappy new interface they rolled out a couple of weeks ago, I can't find that countdown timer anymore so I'm having trouble figuring out which one of the many people I play at one time are doing this. It's making it impossible to report them unless I want to start keeping my own log (no thanks - this game is not that important).
There are a LOT of players doing this now. I suggested a quick and easy fix. Of course ban everyone they catch doing this but to prevent it from continuing all they have to do is make that time between turns CUMULATIVE. So if you decide to burn your 24 hours all at once, too bad, that's all you get. Of course you'd have to give them a few minutes but NOT an entire fresh 24 hours, that's just NUTS. Even better, after you use up your one time delay, make them pay in coins to get more delay!! THAT will put a stop to it!
I seriously doubt ANY honest player would complain about my proposed cumulative suggestion and it would put an instant stop to this exploit. It's really ruining the game and I'm not sure if everyone even realizes it's happening.
If you've noticed this, please let Etermax know so they'll finally do something about it.
