**KNOWN ISSUE**
An unknown error has resulted in Grandmaster Gauntlet progress being reset for a portion of our playerbase. As a result, we will be temporarily removing the Grandmaster Gauntlet as a playable mode. The mode will be reinstated when the team has resolved the issues.
**FIXED**
There appears to be a bug causing missing VFX (visual effects) for a number of elements including traps, phasing and some blocking animations.
THIS ISSUE WAS FIXED ON SEPT 26

Punishing Entire Alliance:- is that fair gameplay?

Dear Game Team,
If certain individuals are cheating please ban them it a fair game. But don’t punish the entire Alliance!
We as leaders and officers have absolutely no tool to identify who is cheating and who is not. So cannot control this aspect of Alliance management.
After Playing skillfully the entire team is stripped of two full brackets in AW. Platinum-1 to Plat2. Just not fair.
Thanks for your consideration!

    Would you have finished as high without players who were cheating?

    Probably not, hence why you got banned.

    or don’t recruit cheaters

    how do u think this is possible?
    at the very least, kick them. It’s kinda easy to tell how they’re cheating.

    Tbh, Kabam should just perm ban these cheaters and all the accounts that were accessed from the cheating device.

    Yep but how much revenue do they make them? If they’re willing to pay someone to play - though I imagine in AW it’s more internal and there’s just the resident gameplay ninja - then I’d have thought they spend a lot of money legitimately in units/offers. A slap on the wrist and a loss of shards is probably the best compromise we’re going to get.

    Lets be realistic guys. There is absolutely not solid way of knowing who is using what; Shady units for wars, mods, TPAs etc... etc... now Kabam has that technology let them ban these guys when they cheat why ban them last day of the AW season and kill the season for the rest of the team...

    how do you think the people who played against your teams cheating accounts that you beat feel? How can you know that without them you would have won or not? You cannot. This is why when someone is determined to cheat the team takes a loss. It happens in team competitive games. It is what you accept.

    @Seraphion these are all shortfalls of the company that are impacting Honest players.
    Ban the cheater day one! Then we kick em and recruit a new member. My point is why wait last day ban these guys and Dock the Alliance!!
    Its inability of the company to create a safe game.

    inability of the alliance to chose non cheaters. Dude detecting cheating is not the easiest thing in the world, and if they are spending they have to make sure they get their ducks in a row to defend themselves. People have already told you how you can ensure people are not cheating, you dont want to go through those steps then you open yourself up to this.

    You are not going to get much sympathy on these forums as pretty much everyone wants the cheating to stop.

    Currently as a leader or officer i have not clue when one of the 30 members use mods or TPAs to clear AW AQ! So whats the assurance that next season we might get some new recruits and push for master and not get docked?
    Its just pointless

    You’re lucky you just fell 1 spot. In all honesty, an alliance that cheats should not have a rank at all and be banned from the next war season.

    @Lormif I am not asking any sympathy. But its one of the shortfalls that need to fixed in the game!

    Whatever! this is a never ending. Pointless topic. Probably the company has no resources to better this game.
