Suddenly can't login anymore. "There is a problem with your account. Contact support for help." or something.

Saw another guy getting same thing. Has there been some sort of mass ban? I have done NOTHING wrong and certainly haven't ever cheated. I've been playing for an entire year to build up my hood and stats and suddenly I can't play. What the actual f...

Have contacted support, get the impression I will never even hear back. What a joke, Gree.

You will hear back, took about a week for me. Said it was for exhibiting behaviour the violates ther language policies. I complained because I hadn't, spoke to ccm and got re instated. They do seem to have done some mass banning, when it happened to me there was a few forum members who also had a ban at the same time.

I've literally only sent a couple of messages to people in the last few weeks and have never used bad language.

Ragmondino
08-19-2012, 03:57 AM
It may be something else, that was just what I got banned for, and my bad language consisted of telling people that (TnA) stood for t!ts and Azz. They seem to be trying to trim the numbers

Would it be anything to do with my high stats and not buying gold? Because that would be dispicable if it is.

As a rule, if you have to use strange characters or spelling to evade a language filter, it'll probably get you banned. This isn't confusing.

Is anyone else having a problem with their comment wall? For some reason all my comments are gone on there.

I know its off topic but I figured it'd be better than starting a whole new thread

You might have tried looking through the existing forum topics first. ;). This was discussed at length yesterday. I had the problem, wall came back this morning, now its gone again.

Also got banned send ticket no reply yet. Can it be cause I used the system? At the moment I am building 4 communication center at once. U can do these kinda stuff if its a mission. U can keep clicking on the mission and it lets u build another 1. Works same with money buildings, ofc only if u got a mission to build it.

So in a way I just use the system as they give it. Also sometimes get glitches like can upgrade another building suddenly. So is this my fault and do I really deserve a ban for it? In a way am a free player not great stats had fun while playing so not gonna cry if my account gets a perma ban.

Yeah, you do deserve to be banned for it. You can only build one building at once, and can only upgrade 1 building at once.

Lets you build 4 buildings at once and out of no where let's you upgrade more buildings? Sounds kind of fishy if you ask me lol.

U can try it also, if u get a mission that says build a certain building. U can click on the mission tab to build more at once. Only works if u use the mission tab to build it.

When you found out this glitch, you should send a ticket to support and you should not use the glitch afterwards.

So guys I got a reply from support. They banned me because they think I'm cheating because I have so much money. Like I thought. This really sucks. How can I prove I haven't cheated? Surely there are other players with very high income like me at my level?

"Thank you for contacting us. Your account has been banned due to suspicious activity. Can you please explain where the millions of dollars spent in your account recently came from? We have no records of these amounts being earned during normal game play."

Hey buddy, I got the exact same reply.

Looks like the high IpH free players are accused of cheating. Gree probably cant believe that players can get so rich by not spending gold but their pure passion to this game lol.

Teach,
I don't even count my on hand money exactly,just have a general idea of how many 10Ms I'm still away from the lvl3 NC upgrade. Simply log in and collect, barely even rob.

Mig
08-19-2012, 03:43 PM
Well, can you provide evidence or not?

How can I prove it? It's pretty obvious I'm not cheating considering I post here regularly. It's not hard to reach $800k/h if you save patiently for big upgrades, it's just most people don't have the patience I do. Like Steve already said I have been camping for probably 2 months now while upgrading. I saved for 2-3 weeks for each nightclub upgrade.

I think it's shocking that I have been banned for being too good at a game. I have spent the last year working on my hood and I'm labelled a cheater and banned. I am guilty until proven innocent. What a joke. If I was cheating why would I even care about being banned?

How do Gree expect people to want to play their game when they ban you if you get good at it?

Oh, and why would I be proud of my stats and advertise the fact I've not bought gold if I was cheating? That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

My account is already being ruined everyday that I can't access it. I'm probably getting robbed blind for the last 2 days.

Yeah.. That makes sense... I am saving for a level 3 now.. I guess I wonder a bunch of people the other day talked about how they lost so much with the server issue and rollback taking away buildings and expansions without returning the invested money, but then I seem to remember one or two people mentioning they had the opposite happen with money spent being added back.l.

I was just wondering if something like that could have happened. Given all of the glitches lately in the game it seems like both of you are on the wrong end of some issue on their side..l

Their servers screw with people's hoods and then they ban players because of it. Sort of ridiculous. They had to have gotten at least a handful of support tickets on the rollback issue...

TonySpaghetti
08-19-2012, 03:57 PM
I'm guessing their new cheater-detection still needs work. Considering the number of cheats out there, they probably figured it was better to just ban them all instead of investigating each one and address the people who are crying foul on a case-by-case basis.

Seems crazy to bother free noncheater. Do the math funzio, look at the bldgs and look at the number of days the player has been presenty, see if it is possible for that lvl income to support the hood.

Ridiculous they are looking at this, not the obvious cheaters with 1000 bulldozers, 1000 jets, plus...Oh that might be a cheater u think!

i totally agree, they are the GREEdy gang. want your money and if they dont get a certain amount out of the account they ban you for cheating!! with no evidence to back it up! GREE rip people off its unprofessional but it wont stop because u got clowns on here spending money still. people should stop being ego manics boycott the buying of gold and demand whatever we want in game then ull see it changed 100% untill that happens enjoy getting bum ****d
