Gifting event and permanent gifting badge

Goken2345Goken2345 Posts: 547 ★★
Is there any talks of the permanent gifting badge returning? Since the gifting event is annual and all long term players know when it comes how is it not ripe for the same abuse as the permanent gifting badge? Has the team come up with solutions on how to curb the abuse of the permanent gifting badge?

    They have already said in another post awhile ago that they do not have a plan to bring it back permanently.

    In all honesty, they shouldn't even bring back the event next year either.

    They should 1 more time with HUGE rewards then ban everyone that cheats even a tiny bit forever

    Any reputable company bans them for life on the tiniest instance of fraud here. Bought 1 unit off mercs or 400k perm bans without remorse

    Kabam isn’t going to leave this in the dust bin for new year. They made too much money off of the gifting event.
    I'd rather them just stop the event if they cant prevent the fraud or cheating. Everyone wanted the event now everyone is complaining about the cheating and "proof" of fraudulent units. Kabam has very little reach outside the game when it comes to fraud. It's incredibly hard to deal with as all they have is screenshots which can all be doctored. Hard to tell reality from fantasy.

    So what were the actual issues that led to the banning?

    I would love for them to only allow it within your alliance with maybe a 1 week blackout period for new members.

    How do you even get fraudulent units?

    Let me make this simple for you. Don’t go down that road.

    For obvious reasons that question should be ignored

    What gets me is they took it away cause their reason was fraud. Which might be part of it but I doubt that was the whole reason. They only bring it back and do not care about cheating or fraud because it makes them millions in just a couple weeks.

    I don't disagree but most of the time, not always, when this event comes around the people in an alliance have been there a while or have somewhat proven themselves to be for lack of better term.worthy to stay.

    Well let me rephrase my question: how are fraudulent units even a thing to be inserted into the game and not automatically detected as somethings not right here

    The I csnt be kicked mentality sets in for some and that creates abuse even among people you know.

    Once you remove repercussions for actions people will always push the limits.

    you cannot tell me they did not foresee that fraud would happen
    they took it away claiming because rampit fraud saying it was not feeseable or fair to the players who played fairly (more like costing them money gotta sell those units *wink*
    they then bring it back with zero changes or protections and expect that fraud not to return either you knew better or whoever made the desision to do so is an idiot

    100% agree. The numbers do not lie. They bring this event back with no means of preventing fraud, cheating, and will do nothing going forward to change. I really think alot of the badge being taken away too was people have several small accounts that were gifting their main potions and revives and it was costing kabam money.

    They can track how many purchases of units you have done(likely do)
    They can track earned units in game(likely do)
    If total spent ever exceeds total earned or bought you found a scam and delete the acct.

    Any developer tracks purchased and earned currency it's actually quite simple.


    The arena bots lifting an allaince score is slightly more complicated.

    But fraud units is devolper 101 type problems to solve
    They do track all of that because if you ever want to change your email address to your account they ask you about recent purchases and you have to verify that in order to change your email address so they can track it. It would be interesting to see if people in any lower alliances got banned from this event that may have been cheating. Alliances that get that spend that much off of a mobile game would make me wonder and check. Seatin makes a point when he shows the #1 alliance bringing in a level 49 guy to their alliance.

    either your a. Greedy b.gullible or c. incredibly stupid to not realize this before the event started.

    im guessing a and c

    They admitted right off the bat that they knew there was some risk in bringing back the event so answer is D. None of the above.
