@CM_Lee Kixeye this needs to be adressed. This has been going on for a little over a month now. Even during Alliance war.
I dont think this is fair. Rebels what do you think of this? 
so by doing this 10 of the top 20 people in the current civil war leaderboard are NRVN or CCT 
Nrvn VS Nrvn(sub) 
Nrvn VS CCT
 They make a low rep fleet containing 1paragon and 1 tyrant lvl99
 friend mirrors the fleet 
Its a SHAME

    Seriously though. Those 2 players got 1st and 2nd prizes for personal score and gained a massive advantage with those prizes, and here is photo proof.

    funny this is acceptable, yet  a trade market with a coin cost Kixeye states is to exploitable... right..:eye roll:

    well if they did do something about it, it would be something that hurts all the players and not those guilty in the first place

    Its a legit post exposing those who cheat the system with proof.
    I just want to shed some light on it.

    I was able to catch these guys a few times.  Its nice easy points for CW, since they cant actually fight.

    They have however, gotten real good at this fightclubbing lameness and are a bit elusive to catch in the act.

    As for the claim that they have gained some advantage through "winning" CW.... I think it was berserker cruisers and coins.

    Berserkers are worthless and they spent coins to get the coins.  Not the end of the world

    My philosophy in gaming has always been, if there is a cheat or an exploit it is the players responsibility to take advantage of it, until the developers take steps to actually fix their game.

    So complain to kixeye.  Players will always do whatever is allowed within the system the developers create.

    Thing is they are not cheating in a sense of doing anything that is impossible for others to do.  They are using the same ships as everyone else is flying.  They are working under the same rules as everyone else is doing.

    However, it's clearly not the intended purpose of civil war.  It sucks to compete agaist that in the leaderboards.  It is terrible for the game overall.

    Should this be fixed? My vote is yes.

    I would personally like to see obvious exploits fixed more.  The inquisitor with lance driver firing on modules but not hitting things in min range.  The overdrive from paragon and sovreign activating on base modules.  

    In the end, this has been going on for a while.  As have the other issues that I just mentioned.  There has yet to even be a statment of acknowledgement that any of these are issues by Kixeye.  They either do not see them as problems, or they do but do not care to do anything about them.  Either way, the end result is the same.  It is yet another thing to have to accept as the state of the game.

    Where have you actually been?

    Inq can no longer fire on something and not hit it with lance, overdrive of paragon and sov are SUPPOSED to work on modules, and I will not accept anything as "part of the game" specifically because the forums still exist (a little).

    Years of complaints about a refit bay got us time tokens as well as months off in between tech, all the most famous glitches were mentioned here and fixed, and they are quite noticeably reducing the time required to craft, upgrade, and research the current tech each season. Just as how we can insta-craft weapons, shields and armor only take hours to equip, MK for the purple stuff is insta-craft, some hulls are now insta-craft now, and so on.

    Slow as ****, but they eventually listen to us.

    Perhaps suggestions on how to systematically fix it (without relying on player reports) would be more helpful. Those players have been doing that for months already, the developers should well be aware of the problem.

    Should be aware or is aware of the problem? Do you even know? If they are aware then they shouldnt be awarding those players and should be disqualifying those alliances.

    We have been screaming for months on how to fix civil war but it falls on deaf ears, or threads get closed by power tripping blue names like yourself.

    Don't try to blame the playerbase for kixeye's malfeasance.

    We (Preview Program members) have mentioned the problem to them directly on multiple occasions, whether they can/bother to fix it is another matter. (Based on the recent response times, Customer Service might be a bit stretched out, so don't count on them for mass player reports)

    I have thought of some ways to solve the problem, such as reintroducing the HP-based point awarding and anti-no-damage-taken system, but they all have profound impacts on the legitimate players.

    see here, the problem is they’re spending coins while cheating, CM Chris had claimed that made it ok. Because the amount of money they were spending to win the civil war, is ridiculously more than if they simply bought the items from the market with gold. So they weren’t actually paying for an advantage.

    Perhaps new ingame Event Mods can fine some kind of ingame message as a notification or penalty. I know its manual, but will work on the same way forum Mods does.

    What if Kixeye just made an example of the players caught cheating and permanently banned their accounts? That would send a very clear message and would act as a deterrent to future cheaters. Plus the players banned would have more money to spend on things more important than a game, like a class about intelligent money management or psychological help for their obsessive personality disorders. It'd be a win for everyone! Except Kixeye would be banning their top spenders in exchange for a more fair gaming experience for the rest of us...okay, now I see why this would never happen.
    Please, if you are going to reply to my posts, do not make the mistake of attacking me personally instead of my arguments. By the same token, do
    not take anything I reply as an attack on you personally. I bear no ill will towards anyone.

    Don't you wish that they banned players accounts as quick as they ban people from the forums.

    I remember when Fat Chicken was screaming about hit 6 MILLION coins he got for free from his base resetting scam, that account should have been instantly banned as he had already spent the coin and was spending the coin for a second or third time and yet they kept allowing him to play the game.
