In our latest war we had a member on vacation so we went in with 29/30 on the field. We encountered an alliance that we thought had really well composed defenses and high troop levels for their warscore… The explanation came later on, they have found a way to have their warscore remain the same after multipel wins. After everyone in their alliance had used their flags and collected the points they started to leave and come back, nothing strange there, they could be mercing for food, but then we noticed that the entire alliance were ex members.
This in fact means that they get no loot from the war, but it also means that their personal warscore remains the same as the register as 0 points in the war. I waited with posting this since i wanted to check after the new matching if their warscore would be similar to what it was last time to confirm our theory, and it was, we also had a member leave and come back to check if the warchest would still count since you did participate with 6 flags, and we could confirm that it did. Cheating? I think not, manipulating a flaw in programming to their own advantage? Yes. Instead of collecting war loot and loosing the occasional war they collect a warchest every 5th war. Cheers Lex. Added text to clarify from one of our members : @Lexual Could you add to your article something across the line :
Your Personal warscore includes your „past performance“. Since each player vanished from the actual scoreboard (is non existant for the ongoing war) there is no calculation of such personal performance possible .There are just no numbers to feed the programm.
The only numbers the game program can process is the final war score for both alliances, which in their case is counted towards a win and gets them 5 points towards their warchest. If you leave and rejoin during an ongoing war your participation towards the warchest remains intact.
