There are screenshots of a member of one of the top 3 factions that has multiples of what looks like the Stratovarius, the madagascar top 10 prize getting around. I am wondering if there is another prize that has the same graphic that someone can get multiples of. I am also wondering what the other 2 items are that he has 5 of each off that are his most powerful unit.

Is there anyone out there that is able to tell me what these units are?

This is a unique graphic for the Top prize from Madagascar. The account was supposedly "hacked" by someone else and was supposedly reported over 2 weeks ago. It's a shame it happened - more of a shame that there isn't a "quick" response to hacker situations.

Even the other day at the Apple Store - when one of the techs say MW on my phone - he commented that MW was one of the top grossing Apps - you would think they would invest more in Security / Customer Service - to KEEP it that way - smh

If you were hacking and someone found out, would you admit to it or say someone else must have hacked my account??

Maybe those that scored over 500k points using a regen hack (to clarify BY USING A REGEN HACK, some legitimatly get their points) got hacked by someone else also and just never noticed, so their WD points should still stand as should the faction awards. And those poor people that have someone hack another factions defence leader and give them a few million defence that they didn't have before.

If it was 2 weeks ago, then the day before the event, if the units are still there then she should have been removed from the faction to show the faction was clean.

If there should be any weight at all to the claims that the account was involuntarily hacked the player should have left his faction and reported to Gree as soon as it was discovered. It's as simple as a click of the button [Leave Faction].

If this wasn't done there should be no debate, the player account needs to be deleted from the game and the faction should be punished!

Gree, show us that you care about your customers...

Look what Sony did when its servers were hacked, they shut them down for over a month at great cost, they took our security and gaming enjoyment seriously gree would never do that cause they don't give a toss about customers just spend time thinking up new ways to fleece customers our of the hard earned cash!!!

First off get your faction leader to spill the beand on the Faction Leaders Parlingo - pm me I will tell you who runs it and you can contact them to be verified.

Second, you do know that people in the gold program (at the top end) can pick any 1 unit of their choice from a WD event?? But not 3 to my knowledge.

we all know who the hackers are, its the MOFFOS. they were named and shamed and support turned a blind eye. all of this was known. all you need is the is 2 small numbers from the device and you can clone that another device. takes 2 minutes and you can steal a game and do with it as you please.

Its sad that the ranking in the Battles are ruined by the Top factions who have hackers. Not everyone in the Top factions are hackers but they allow hackers to participate in their factions. I guess you will allow anything to place in the Top 10 rankings.

How did the hackers get these "2 small numbers"? Were they actually given them by the player?
It almost seems like a player gave a hacker those "2 small numbers" for them to hack their account, but after seeing how obvious the hacker made it, they had no real choice but to speak up about it.

no excuse they shouldn't have been in the faction full stop . how many times do people have to be caught out for gree to act ? if a faction gets caught out a second time they should delete the faction . if gree can't stop the cheats they should stop the events .

whats to stop all the other people with hacked accounts that have extra units/bonuses from saying that they were hacked by a third party and that they are innocent and their faction shouldn't suffer?
Your faction has stated nothing about this until others bought up screenshots. If your faction was so clean and pure, surely you would have posted something on the forums as soon as it happened, and stating that they were not partaking in the WD with screenshots to prove it? Everyone has their eyes on the top factions, so you would have to do the extra mile to show definitively that everything is clean, and yet we havn't seen this so far.

You can understand how we come up with the opinion that the player has hacked, been caught out and now the damage control is out rather than believing an explanation which while theoretically possible, has had nothing shown to support it.

why not ask the Moffos since they are the ones who stole the account. they are the ones who are doing this, not the account holder.

why not ask them you are all on Groupme with them..... this is not a case of Stockholm syndrome. the person is not in control of the device. quit being babies, everyone here that was on Groupme could access the Moffos rooms and see they were posting this stuff and how many of you reported it???????

very easily, one reason is yes sharing it, especally when your sending tickets as a faction to support or working with them as a faction.

another is you can obtain this from a device threw hacking means. several other games send this with account info to the receiving device when viewing game profiles. so your "friends or allies" with someone in a different game and your checking their "info" page, well many game companies send UDID and other account information as part of that. you just simply need to be able to read it, and not all game companies use encryption for the data they send. just look at the data packs your devices sends and receives its not rocket science people. 12 year olds do this all the time.

I am not on groupme, if you have screenshots of the groupme room chat then that would make your claim a lot more valid. As they say, SS or it didn't happen. It still doesn't explain why your faction did not bring this issue up on the forums before anyone else did.

they were posted on here over a week ago. several people got banned for posting them. sorry your late to the game.

talk to you compatriots who were on the forums more often. there were 3 threads with all the info open for the public to read.

yeah they did and reported it to SUpport that instant. the problem is the account wasn't just hacked, it was taken over. if you spoof the information that these guys spoofed you have control over the account like it was a game on your device.

once an account is taken over the player who took the account can play that account as if it was theirs. guys this is not new either its been on here months ago. thats why Gree posted information sharing info.

for a Bravo your really dumb ask your teammates most of them know what I speak is the truth.....

Everyone knows the WD battles r all about points, Yes? Then this person must be the thickest hacker in the world to actually increase their level versus reducing it and to also reduce their stats, which is exactly what has happened. Therefore, yes the account was hacked and taken over, also this did not happen until battle started, therefore as again everyone knows, the teams are locked until the end of battle. Finally and probably most important, as soon as it happened both the player and senior players sent messages to Gree about the violation and it is being looked into.

Not too sure what else could have be done, all i would say is, i hope everyone learns from this and also took note of the Information Security thread issued not so long ago about the information you may unintentionally pass on and what can be done with this info.

Hindsight is a lovely thing, i am sure we all wish we did something differently in life. Good luck to all over the next 5 hours or so.

Gree has been aware of the situation since it happened an hour into wd. You wouldnt be happy were it your account so please try and have a modicum of consideration for others before you let loose with your flamethrower from behind your screen.

Lesson to everyone (especially non-technical people like me), do not ever let anyone have all that info on the bottom of your support tickets.

In fact, Gree removed certain individuals from various factions AFTER Colombia started.

They did this due to various hacks and exploits that identified specific accounts.

Bottomline.... If you knew or should have known this occurred and failed to report it in a timely fashion, whoever it was, individual or faction, failed to act is now as suspect as one who either hacked or was hacked. The faction's advantage was received regardless of how it was implemented.

Trust me or not, but I personally was able to provide a number of politicos and high level govt oficials a vacation in a Federal Instition because they failed to act. The fact remains, it happened. Period. End of statement.

Exactly what and how it happened requires more investigation. Obviously, the fact that the faction knew about it has been evidenced by the defenseive statements above. So stop the circular dribble like some low-life mope and work with Gree to identify cause, effect, and a reasonable remedy, particularly since this affects the expenditure of real-life money.

In this case commission or omission, the faction is stil culpable.

We faced your fraction twice in the last two days. I noticed a jump of 20k in this person stats from the first battle to the second battle. If you knew you had a issue with an individual since you are a top fraction why not post that information here.

I personally don't see how I am flaming anyone. All I am saying is that no matter who did it, no matter how it was done, the points won in the vent should be null and void, and prizes should not be received.
(and I agree if you give that security info to someone, you are part of the problem...what did you think it was gonna be used for? )

Trust me, if we had a hacker and he got wiped, and the points got wiped, I would be the first to applaud Gree for fixing it. I want our faction to get their ranking fairly.

You guys are totally missing the point..who really cares about the prizes?

I think that what camper killer is saying is certainly possible, even if it may seem unlikely to all. With many of the reports on here I would not be surprised by anything anymore. I am not taking sides until more information is known, but will go on record saying that it is a messed up situation. If the player did this on his own accord then it is messed up from within, if it was from an outside source trying to tarnish the faction then it is messed up, but not really the factions fault....IF it was done after the WD event started as stated. If what camper killer describes is accurate, then how can they control what is basically a drone being operated from the outside without being able to drop the player during the battle. If they only reported it directly to Gree but not on the forum, then technically it would seem like they did the right thing as per Gree's TOS. Unfortunately we now live in a world where perception means more than fact. We also unfortunately now live in a world where it seems one is guilty until proven innocent instead of innocent until proven guilty. In that regards, I can see both sides of the fence, and hopefully Gree will investigate and get to the bottom of the situation in accordance with what really happened. Regardless of the outcome, I truly hope it can be resolved as it definitely reduces confidence in gold spending knowing that either scenario is possible. This is just an opinion and not meant to offend anyone.

This situation almost reminds me of performance enhancing drugs in sports. Did the player in question take them or not? If the information is leaked that the player used, whether the information is credible or not, then the public will make assumptions and it does not matter what the player in question or league can provide as support in terms of guilt or innocence.

Read the threads, this happened immediately after the battle commenced, and thus your team is frozen and u cannot remove anyone. Obviously the hacker knew this and it was planned this way.

Secondly, yes gree was informed immediately, as soon as that happened it is out of everyones hands. The person did not know they had passed info over as it was at the footer of an email re customer support, that has your details on it, the udid was not just handed over.

Everyday scenario: you use your credit card to pay for a meal, the credit card is cloned, 2 weeks later your card is used to buy goods. Are you telling me you would tell the credit card company you are at fault? And that you are liable to pay for all the goods to the retailers. I dont think so. Same scenario.

Issue is 90% of the people being accused as a hacker are not, they are just power houses (like myself) :) ... If so many people stopped reporting non hackers they may do something about it but every time someone loses they play the hacker card so it will never happen.

I did read the thread , the camper killer comments about talking to mofo on group me a week ago ect is why I replied thinking the faction knew a week ago , thinking that I stand by my comment of "if " cheated , I have now spoken to friends in that faction and believe it to be a taken over account after WD started . And I still say if anyone has been found hacking money , units or energy they should be delt with , I welcome any gree checks for hacking at bravo because we are 100% legit .

I Agree re hackers, no one has defended hacks on this thread, what we have done is stand up for the innocent, a team mate, like i would expect any team mates would do for me in the same situation, if they didnt i would not want to be in that faction. you have each others backs, yes? not all facts were known so hopefully this has become clearer to all, i am sure gree will rectify this and the culprit gets their due as this is beyond your normal hack.

There are screenshots of a member of one of the top 3 factions that has multiples of what looks like the Stratovarius, the madagascar top 10 prize getting around. I am wondering if there is another prize that has the same graphic that someone can get multiples of. I am also wondering what the other 2 items are that he has 5 of each off that are his most powerful unit.

Is there anyone out there that is able to tell me what these units are?

All good and dandy - except - I am in a top 10 faction for like - ever - and no one came forward to anyone in our faction as far as I know. Bottom line is this - as a leader in my faction - if we were in this unfortunate predicament - we would have immediately and repeatedly publicly stated the case you a now publicly stating after the fact.

Lesson learned - claim your innocence before you're called out so you are the one bringing it to light instead of having to defend an indefensible position after someone else drags it out for the court of public opinion.

I had to laugh at this part. This isn't a court case (well, maybe the court of public opinion).

The account in question was not hacked 2 weeks ago. I have screenshot of said account from yesterday's battle. Those Madagascar units were not there. This was hacked after our battle.


This is a unique graphic for the Top prize from Madagascar. The account was supposedly "hacked" by someone else and was supposedly reported over 2 weeks ago. It's a shame it happened - more of a shame that there isn't a "quick" response to hacker situations.

Even the other day at the Apple Store - when one of the techs say MW on my phone - he commented that MW was one of the top grossing Apps - you would think they would invest more in Security / Customer Service - to KEEP it that way - smh

They are looking into it and working to resolve the issue and for it to be up for debate on here is like trying a court case thru the media with no rules and no real facts just hear say and what you think you know. Which is not much but all of the documentation was turned over to GREE for them to handle it. So your opinions are just that and not facts so the thing to do was turn all information over to GREE and let them do their job and deal with it, but all this he said she said and you should have done this you really don't know what was done and when and what was going on you are just Speculating. But really the only thing that needed to be done was to report it and it was Acknowledged that was done!!!

In a soccer competition, you field a non qualified player in the team and they go on to win it, will they be penalised or disqualified?

Coach of the team can say he has send in the information of the alleged player to the competion organiser after discovering it and waiting for their response. Meanwhile, the player is still fielded in all matches.
The coach suggest to deduct the goals that the player score as they still have margin even though the player was fielded as a goalkeeper (to prevent goals and not to score). Now is that fair?

If you are the coach, what will be the correct way to approach this?

Just a comment. No pun inended.

Unfortunately that might apply to less than 1% of the cases, most of the people sharing such details do it for other purposes in my opinion.
Anyway no player in a top faction would be naive to hack in such an obvious manner, especially that the account under investigation has been there for quite a long time, however the timing of this incident after new methods of manipulating the game were revealed makes me and others doubtful.
One last questions for you CJ, in previous WD events two factions have been totally disqualified from the event for similar reasons although those factions had some legit players within, can you please explain how this specific incident is different from the others?

Isn't it down to the individual to keep that information secure like it is with usernames and passwords?
Isn't it basic common sense to only give that kind of information to the official support address if required?

Generally the way people get tricked like this is when they are trying to (lets say) "gain an unfair advantage".

Thank you for posting this Gene, this is the information I was after, especially making the other rival faction leaders aware of the situation and stopping the participation in the WD. I have also read CJ's post confirming what you have said is correct. Well over 95% of hacked accounts in this game are done by/with authority of the owner and you can understand this being the assumption until shown otherwise. In response to the other post, I am not in the US/Canada timezones, so if items are posted up and then removed soon after, I can miss them if its not my evening time.

My condolences to the player with the hacked account, hacking someone elses account is even lower than hacking your own account and hopefully they can be resolved.

This happened to me 3 months back, account is stolen and hacked. with the help from Gree, I got back after 3 weeks. wow many loots units, billions of in-game $$ and best of all health regen is 99%. I email your support about this matter and request all units, $$ and hacked data to be removed from my game (FYI, I still has all the email between your support and me about this issue). SUpport remove all in-game $$, left loot units with me. I email them about the health regen and was told to just reinstall my game. which i did, in fact I even change my device. nothing changes. yes i use the health regen but I still buy golds to refill!!! Dont tell me to stop the game after I spend real $$ and more than 1 year building up. Recently, Gree blocked my game and I sent emails to support and guess what, no response. that's it!!!
SO can anyone tell me what am I suppose to do!! CJ???
Lastly, I dont do millions of wps and my score doesnt changes my faction ranking for 2 events

Gene, I will ask you how you did not know that the player was hacked or a hacker prior to the WD event? I reported her multiple times for hacking and violating gree's terms and conditions of the game. On 5/21/2013 she was reported for threatening other players on the game saying things like, if you attack her again the cartel will destroy you and so on. Then i reported the player again for hacking, not during the WD event but well before on 5/23/13 because she had 5 mig-250's at level 219 at that time and 5 p-91 pounders. I then saw her during WD and reported her again on Sunday where she had 3 stratovarus planes before WD was over and was now level 221 showing the game had been played. The player should have never made it to WD. I've got screenshots of her threats to various players on the game which is against grees terms and conditions. Had gree banned her for this when I reported it the first time she would have never been in your faction for the WD event, many teams below you guys would not have spent hard earned dollars trying to rank higher.

In my opinion grees blind eye to the top factions caused this. The player violated terms and conditions that states "use the Service to post or otherwise distribute any information that is abusive, threatening, obscene, defamatory, libelous, or racially, sexually, religiously, or otherwise objectionable or offensive" that is right out of the terms of service on the in game help. Had this been resolved at that time your faction would not be being scrutinized right now. Gree has failed you.

That is referring to real world threats, not threats of attacking/getting others to attack a players base.

Where does it say real world? Either way I reported the player for hacking two days after the threats as well. I've seen other players banned for the same thing in my first faction. They would attack people then say add me or ill keep coming back and they were banned, how is that any different? Because she's in sup2 a the reigning top 3 faction???

Just because somebody claims that to have been the reason it doesn't mean it actually was.
If that truly was the reason then it's weak. This is a war game, not hello kitty island adventures.

I know that it was for one account, my child's account was banned for trying to get allies that way, he was punished by gree and me for it. The rules only apply to players who are average non gold or light gold users. When you join a top faction all rules are bent to best fit grees bank accounts is how it appears to many. As long as someone doesn't hack gold or health regen gree doesn't care.

You're right it's not hello kitty, but it's also not a fair playing field. There are rules in place to make the game as fair and enjoyable as possible for all. However when hackers that are reported are not handled appropriately then the rest of the players in the game suffer.

I can assure you that there's 7 other factions behind SUP2 that were fighting hard, most with hard earned money making an attempt to rank as high as possible while the number 3 teams WD score that's displayed on the leader board helps set the pace of scoring at that level, if that score is partially generated by hackers many spent additional money on gold that may not have been needed.

The hacker player in question was on their roster, scored WD from defended attacks during WD and I'm sure fought with inflated stats for their supposedly hacked account as well as wasted people's gold while they searched for targets and if she was beaten, or even say the weakest player on their team then many other players scored off of her that may not have, possibly changing their ranking in WD as well. Don't look at it with tunnel vision look at the way having someone like that on your roster could affect all.

Last I ask is how did they know their account was hacked and taken over if they could not get into it as implied by camper killer? Was she able to get into her account? I suspect she could, so did she fight during WD with inflated stats from hacked units while knowing her account was compromised? How many WD points did she score?

Gene, if you knew about this and wanted to do something about it, why didn't she leave the faction after it was supposedly discovered?

And, according to some statements here, she was hacking (or hacked, if you say so) days before the WD event, so why didn't you report this sooner?

CJ, if this was reported "when it was happening", does that mean it was reported already before the event, and if so, how come it took you so long to react?
