Ok,

Understand, this is not a threat, this is a promise...

Here it is...

You banned me right when I was in the middle of a battle, not cool.

You banned me for cheating, I don't cheat, again, not cool.

I have spent about $5000.00 dollars on this account, and you ban me for cheating?

That means YOU (Kixeye) are theves...

Listen up, I don't cheat, and I am no hacker...


So, here it is, either you call me right now and we resolve this, or you give me back all of my money, or I do this...

I will use my computers at work to do back ground checks on all of the executives and board members and I will put it all on facebook and twitter and anything else I can find...

I will place your address, phone numbers and legal and ilegal activities for the past 10 years if I can find it and trust me, if it's there, I'll find it...

And if you think I am bluffing, try me!!!

you guys have really pissed me off.

And if I do open another account, my suggestion would be for you to ignore me, ruffle my feathers and I will fight back...

P.S. - You pissed off allot of others in sector 239 as well, I think you need to apologize with a written letter to them, but I know you won't do that, cause after all, all you want is the **** money and to hell with everyone else...

    Hi there,

    While normally we do not discuss account bans in detail, as you have come on the forum to discuss this in public, we will respond in kind. Let me assure everybody that the last thing we want to do is ban players - after all, why would we want to make games, and then not let people play them? But, there are cases in which a user is cheating and we have no choice but to remove them from the game.

    So, you won the most recent Revenge Raid, and were awarded with the Battleship hull on January 1st. Congratulations! The problem, however, is that you now have 50 battleships (no, that isn't a typo). I've provided screenshots of your base below, showing your fleets as well as the build times of the most common type of battleship that you've built, which takes 7 days and 15 hours to built. While you've spent credits in the game in the past, you have not spent anything since the most recent Revenge Raid. Building 50 of these battleships would take a grand total of 381.25 days, and it's been 4 days since the end of the event.

    I think the evidence speaks for itself.

    Here's your dock:

    And here's the shipyard with the most common loadout of battleship that you've built:

    I want to make sure that our players understand we do look for cheaters, we will remove them from the game, and we'll ban spenders - while we do appreciate people spending in the game, that doesn't mean they get to cheat. Oh, and the Battleship hull has been awarded to the runner-up in this sector. :)

    This does raise one small flag. How long was he hacking prior to the RR and how did he make it through the RR hacker screening?

    Other then that. WELL FREAKING DONE!!!!!!

    And thanks a ton for showing us this.
    Unfortunately, players repeatedly “bubbling” each other are abusing this system.

    Well done Xandamere. I applaud the fact you did not let this hack lecher belittle the game with his comments with no reply. Proof is in the pudding and you did well to provide plenty of proof.

    I loath hack users and have and will continue to turn in each and everyone I come across. They do nothing but ruin the game for the rest of us who work hard for what we have weather it be in time or credits, at least it was done honestly in either case.

    Hats off again Xandamere!

    To be honest, I'm not entirely sure - our current hack detection methods are, frankly, not quite as polished as we'd like them to be. We're working to improve them (and as Paul Preece, one of the company founders, said on the forums recently - it's our #1 priority). I can promise you that players who hack WILL be caught - it might not be today, or tomorrow, but players who cheat will be caught and banned.

    Stealthy - Hammerheads came out a lot earlier than battleships. All of these issues have to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

    If you'd like to report any players whom you suspect of cheating, we'll be happy to investigate them. Just go to support.kixeye.com/mail and submit a support ticket - include enough information to locate the player(s) you are reporting, such as nickname, coordinates, chat ID number, etc.

    notice that he siad he has spent $5000 on THIS account? Sounds lkie a multi account user to me. and as for credits, it would have taken $44.90 USD for EACH ship in the layout posted, $2,245 for 50 ships in that build. not only was he Cheating and Hacking, He was stealing from Kixeye. Top that off, I think Kixeye should award that hull to the #2 in the sector, since the top place has been disqualified

    The simple fact of the matter is that there are people out there that just sit at their computers designing programs to bypass things like this all the time. its a hobby and I'm sure kyxeye are doing everything to the best of their ability's but as one hack becomes obsolete the next one is released. keep up the good work as it is very disheartening for us legit players to have some rand float down with a continuous flow of ships at their disposal.

    P.S Name and Shame ftw as well. let it be known who is doing it right and who is not
