Yesterday at 11:30 AM I checked the leaderboards and rank 100 was a little over 5000 points with a particular person absent from the leaderboards. I checked again at 3:00 PM and said person is now rank 6 with over 14000 points.
Okay, so that is 9000 points in 210 minutes. Let’s say each match gives 45 points, a reasonable average I think. This means 200 games played in 210 minutes. Given that it takes at least 15 seconds to go from game to game, this means each game took an average of (21060 - 19915)/200 = 48 seconds. (In truth the time between games is probably closer to 20 seconds, especially when considering defense rewards popping up, which means the average game time drops to 43 seconds).
I think it is safe to say that these numbers are unreasonable for a legitimate player. I normally wouldn’t post about this as the developers usually purge on Sundays, but this player has done something similar in weeks past and still remains.
Of the few major flaws I think are in this game, this one should require the most attention. It is very discouraging for legitimate players to see cheaters on the leaderboards, especially with the upcoming guild versus guild update which will be greatly undermined by these cheaters if they remain undetected and unpunished.
