Weve just had to delete 10 level 35 - 80 accounts for exploiting the gym. Weve also fedded 18 other accounts which used the exploit once, and did not come forward about it. One of the deleted accounts were horrified to say was a low-level staff member. Staff are supposed to be setting an example, and staff punishments are often ten-fold that of normal players. We are very pleased with our staff team, and weve made huge improvements over the past year. Its very unfortunate that this has happened, and we feel he has really let us down.

We keep logs of absolutely everything, if we even get the smallest scent that there is a possible exploit with a system, all we have to do is bring up the logs, and were shown exactly who has exploited, how much, and what time to the second they did it. There is no way to get around being caught, many of the deleted accounts abused this bug 3+ months ago, and are now being removed because of it.

This exploit allowed users to train with almost unlimited energy and was thankfully limited to just 28 accounts. There user who came forward with this bug/exploit will be credited a healthy sum of points.
Dont cheat folks!

Awesome job on finding the cheats. As a staff member, I know a number of us are shocked that 1 of our own did this, its very disappointing. Anyway thanks to the person who came forward!

Good job, it happens.

The sad part is why cheat? I like knowing I earned / what I have completed was on my own, with NO help from others or abusing a bug in the System.

Good thing you have logs, and to the person who reported the bug congrats on your FREE lump sum of points!

Good work staff, but 3 mths down the track? , any cheat should be banned, but 3 mths later is not really on the ball, it should not come down to someone reporting, there should be code, and hell i can only guess it would be a nightmare to code, to pick up on any sudden changes in a users account, go the falcon from ANZ bank

So it's still okay to look for exploits provided you tell staff about them as soon as you find them?

And nice to see your not letting people get away with stuff like this.

Well that explains why so many of the uber stat monsters appeared to have lost their personal stats concerning stat enhancer use.

Justice is swift, and needed for awful abuse like this.


People will definitely think twice before exploiting a bug. There's nothing to save you.

I am not sure why you would feel that way, we have huge improvements in the last year as staff. So if this is a conspiracy theory without proof there is no need, when there is proof we swiftly sort out the problem.

We are pretty confident to have gotten them all.
