New player can start in your base and take over squares for free

Post  mrchattorbox on Tue 1 Jul 2014 - 15:00

People have been losing squares with HQs and hundreds of defenders if someone "happens" to be in that block when they start a new account (when Al Capone tells them how to take over a block, it's suddenly only defended by 25 of his guys).

I couldn't find it mentioned before, and thought someone might not know. It can be exploited for bad.

It can't be exploited as long as multi-accounts are impossible =)

It can be exploited if a player has a second device. Or they could just reset their device to make a new guy then reset it again to log in as their original player. The time that would take would be trivial as compared to having to take down a HQ that has 500 defenders.

Even if it weren't possible to be exploited, it still shouldn't be able to happen. I shouldn't lose my HQ (or any turf, really) just because my neighbor decided to start playing the game.

ScrobDobbins : you have to take in account the other part of the equation.

If I'm anew player, and I'm not even capable of gaining a single area, I won't play the game. And it's is really important that new player get involved in the game. So this system is necessary.

Yeah, I've thought of that and I couldn't come up with any great solutions there. :\ Except maybe to exclude HQs from the territories that it will try to get a new player to take over. So at least that way you don't lose something quite as valuable. Because the odds of having so many HQs side-by-side as to prevent them from being able to take over at least 1 area are fairly low, I would imagine..

I think that it's random for the moment

i came on here to post the same issue, and reading these comments i see that player will want to have a spot, but i also agree that HQ shouldnt be a part of it. or maybe have it so any area over 100 men cant be taken by the tutorial players. a friend of mine lost our HQ and 800 men after he accidently chose that spot, he was joining our group too aswell so kinda annoying.
