Banned for exploiting gifting.

Postby BanzaiBob » Wed Dec 30, 2009 9:12 pm

Quote from admin : The reason for a maximum limit is because we had several (not just a few) cheaters abusing the crystal system. We patched some of the loopholes and permanently banned their accounts. The limit is set their to avoid further exploits by future players to create fake accounts to send crystal to themselves.

We improved this recently with following changes:
- you will now get a notification when you reached maximum limit.
- after reach maximum limit and you still wish to valid redeem crystal gifts, they will now be redeemed as bonus coins.

We will continue to monitor for people exploiting the system, and will ban their account without warning if found exploiting

Its good to see cheats being banned but could a member of the admin team define "exploiting the system" as myself and a my friends often trade crystals to complete sets and dont want to get hit with this by accident.

I doubt you are at risk of this. There is after all a "Request this crystal" link available. I think the people who were banned probably got one white crystal and managed to multiply it by sending it to many "friends"(/multies) in hopes that they would return the favor.

But you can only "return the gift" one time per day, so they are no cheat =)
A gives crystal to B
B gives crystal to A

= No cheat, in fact that is the same thing --' XD

You are fine. There was a loophole that allowed players to redeems crystals that they did not receive but it's not fixed. Also there are players creating several multiple accounts and gifting themselves. Gifting between friend and family is perfectly fine and is intended use for the feature.

You can recieve as many as you want but only the first six crystals will be credited - the rest are turned into a cash amount based on your level (not very much regardless of how high you are) Just make sure you accept the pink ones first.
