To prevent exploitation, we will prevent new Accounts from being able to Gift enlistment crystals. We will also be taking action on those who are using 3rd Party Sellers, Bots and other farms to gift themselves mass amounts of Enlistment Crystals. Lastly, we will be adding an expiration timer to Enlistment Crystals. All unopened Enlistment Crystals will expire on Oct 18 @ 17:00 UTC. For more information, please see this post: https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/346104/updates-to-enlistment-gifting-event
We have adjusted the node placement of the new AW maps to better allow path traversal. As a result, defender placements have been reset. Please, take a moment to re-place your defender setup. We will be pushing out a message in-game shortly.

Why do bans happen in waves?

So we see it in AW and now BG that we get ban waves. At the end of a season or I think now AW it’s twice a week and an end of season cleanse.

But why does this happen in waves. AW rewards are given within 24 hours of the season ending. So any investigation and decision that an Alliance should receive a punishment must happen way before the season is over. Why are the cheating Alliance only punished when the season is over? They should be punished as soon as the game team has concluded they have cheated. They shouldn’t left to cheat and the next Alliance they play. This just leaves legitimate Alliances end up having to unknowingly play cheaters and if they lose they don’t get they points back or any resources used in the War.

The same with BG, bans shouldn’t happen in waves. They should happen as soon as the game team has established someone has modded/cheated. They shouldn’t be left to continue to cheat with non cheaters punished. We don’t get the points back we fight modded accounts. We don’t get our elders marks backs. Bans should not happen in waves. They should be immediate. If the argument is Kabam wants to watch there accounts and see how they are cheating. I don’t think any of your players care how they are cheating. We don’t want to be penalised having to continue to play against cheaters and subsequent impact of losing.

I hope for next seasons we move away from waves of bans. The bans should happen as soon as guilt is established, for both AW and BG. Cheaters should not be knowingly left play the game and continue to play cheat. It’s not fair on honest players.

    pretend you have a team of greater than 5 and less than 15 working 40 hours a week with no further headcount approval. pretend also there's a minimum of 250,000 active accounts running just bg at a semi-regular clip. pretend half this team also has to slog through the piles of reported users and differentiate the bad from the sore losers. pretend also every ban has to be triggered manually. also pretend new potential modders enter the game at a clip of thousands in every 48 hr span.

    someone with better math skills than i can break down how fun these folks' lives are just doing things in manageable waves.

    as the uber driver just told me, you want quicker? do it yourself *********. (he didn't get a good rating. )
