Cheating

This kvk we were up by 10 bil points with an hour left in the event. Then we lost by 30 bil points.    What we found was that the opposing kingdom set up an acct in our kingdom, bought some t6, then would attack and heal. They were able to get points for killing over 3 mil t6 this way.     

Posting this more so people can watch for it. But this is irritating on how it comprimises the integrity of the game.   IMO plarium should not allow accounts new to the kingdom be able to compete, or be able to give away points for 2 weeks after it enters a kingdom, and possibly remove the healing portion of kvkr to eliminate this easy way to cheat.

So, what's wrong with the healing portion?


Alternatively to your 2w - You can't move accounts to another kingdom from the announcement of KvK till it's end (doesn't apply to RKvK).

Another alternative - Accounts moved to a new kingdom will be ignore for points (like attacking 'irrelevant' orders during OvO) till the end of KvK if done after it's announcement.


Please note: there are easy ways to bypass both your and my propositions; But then again, there is no stopping hell-bent people on your kingdom from throwing the KvK, regardless of how big your lead is. That's why the KvK-win rewards suck so bad.

True, if points did not count at all both giving and recieving that would work.  I say to remove the healing portion because people like this will already have an account in their kingdom set up so they can attack it and heal for points in kvkr.

Agreed with Test. Some delay for new players for 1 or even 2 KvK

Agreed.   

It sucks that people are out there that will pull stuff like this to take a win from others that played honestly. 

Not really much of a point in playing if it’s going to come down to who can cheat more instead of who has the better skill.

That kinda happened in our Kingdom, within the first hour or even minutes of start of the last KvK, the opposing Kingdom had racked up 10mil pts...


As already mentioned, you could make changes, but as already mentioned, anyone who is experience enough or has more cash then sense, will find a way to get around the revised restrictions... So what can you really do ?????
