    Time to Wipe the Realm

    So this Beta is just about dead.

    People are leaving in droves, and only the top players, most of whom have cheated their way to the top, remain.

    In order to get a feel for how well this game will perform on its own, it is now time to wipe the realm database and invite a FIXED NUMBER OF PLAYERS to evaluate the game.

    The biggest problem with this Beta is that Evony has left it open to new players.

    This is how most of the alts accounts have been created.

    So now all should be wiped, and then only allow about 5000 or so players in, or stop admissions after two weeks.

    Track all I.P. addresses to identify players with multiple accounts - that should cut off about half the cheating.
    Btw, I am pretty sure this game, as currently coded, is unplayable without the use of alts. The resources are just not available to sustain play beyond a particular level.

    Next step is to auto-audit all accounts on a daily basis and analyze the progress of city development.

    Track the number of upgrades performed by each city and look for anomalies. This will point a huge red arrow at cheaters, especially hackers like The Professor, who upgraded a couple dozen objects at the same time. Now you can investigate the individual violators to see if and how to block their advantages.

    It is not brain science or even rocket surgery we're talking about here.

    It is a matter of simple data collection coordinated with statistical analysis.

    It is also the proper way to evaluate a Beta run.

    If you want to create "a really great game", then put in the effort and follow the basic principles of design.

    Or, you could spend your biggest effort creating graphics of scantily clothed females.

    Your choice.

    The server died because of the Spart hacks, actual cheating. TheEliteCheats use this hack and can destroy a city in seconds without using troops. That's cheating.

    Making alts is not big deal and it increases targets. Why cry about that? Most alts are poorly defended and generally have higher lvl storages and res fields, so even someone as astute as you should be able to attack a city like that.

    So it's a war game, go figure out how to get res and build.

    And if you didn't notice, you can go play in Realm2.

    My theory was that they either provided the resource cheats or allowed them to continue in order to allow the realm to develop faster. I reported them and I got the "we can't make changes that negatively affect other players." I used them to catch up. The purpose of a beta is to test it out, not to act like it's a full fledged game...and here we are about 6 months later and not much has changed. As it is now, they have done very little for the advancement of the game and after two months or more, they have not done anything about cheats like the unlimited match and one shot Spartacus. In the last two weeks, I have sent in at least six tickets and I only got a response to one which was "we need to investigate to see if this is a glitch", yet I have gotten four satisfaction surveys.

    On day one we were give two heroes and to date, each of them only have one working spell. We earned Cleo early on and she has zero working abilities. I forget his name, but we earned him through honor and he only had one working spell. Then we were given Spartacus, who really should only be earned by the best of the best, he was fully working and over powered, considering the status of the realm. If something basic like a "commander" of Evony can't work right, then what does it say about this game?

    I log on every morning to collect my 23 gems, hit the speed ups, reset the junk orders, build if needed and repeat at night. I have all level ten farms and mines, so I have good production. One guild in particular hits me for 100% of resources. So if I have 250k of each, they win 250k of each and I have zero to build with. I see no point in doing anything else. Spending 2 minutes, hitting with Spartacus and then dropping 40-50 level 4 wizards isn't exactly fun or challenging.

    so its all back to TheElites ffs Lepar! WE don't cheat!!!! he is in chat all the time and tells people we cheat... to stop all this i put it to evony now take away Spart or take away all his spells, we are sick of people like Lepar going on about our guild, its only people like him who can't fight crying all the time about people that can... so Evony i say it to you now (will you take away Spart or his spells) we are sick of this everytime we win a fight... now Lepar its up to Evony Now!!

    People are not leaving in droves, but we did fix the Spartacus hack and we will be banning those players exploiting it.

    I should rephrase my earlier statement.

    Large numbers of players have given up on this game. Their cities are still running. Their fields and mines produce until they get plundered to 0 influence and get disappeared into the nether regions of the realm.

    The reason it looks like a large number of people are playing is because alt accounts are allowed and many existing players are creating multiple alt accounts. Some guilds are composed entirely of alt accounts. I would not be surprised to find out that about 75% of the accounts are alts. Evony makes it way too easy to cheat. it is so easy, that most people do not consider alt accounts to be a cheat (See the above post by King_Lepar).

    This game is in such bad shape, that most people find alt accounts mandatory and will advise their guild members to create at least 3 to use as farms and flat fillers.

    If you do not get a handle on this most basic failure, serious gamers will avoid this game like the plague.

    My impression was that CoE was being developed to improve Evony's image after the massive failure of Age 1 and 2.

    I have no doubt that bots are also being run in CoE, as there are a number of sites offering bots and hacks for this game.

    I am curious to see how this plays out or if the game is ever launched.

    At the rate bugs are being introduced (very high) and fixed (very low), my estimate is sometime in 2016.

    Regardless, I still believe we are past the time to get back to a level playing field. Too many people have exploited the poor coding of this game and have artificially advanced their accounts to super power status.

    Wipe the database and create a level playing field.

    The true competitive gamers will remain, the cheats will not be able to gain such a quick advantage without using third-party hacks. Daily audits will easily identify them for purposes of banning.

    If this game is so great, let it stand on its own merits.

    CoE is failing on the gamer review sites. The prospects for the launch is pretty bleak at this point.

    We can see how many players log in. We're not just counting cities.

    When code is written by the "trial and error" method, people get bored and leave.

    Most of the people who remain are the ones who developed quickly by exploiting the poorly written code.

    People who were trying to play a straight game gave up rather quickly.

    It looks like the development process is falling apart fast.

    If you check out Realm 2 (Antioch), you will see that it is overrun with alts.

    I estimate tens of thousands, and possibly even hundreds of thousands.

    I stumbled on that piece of trivia when I was checking the borders.

    Pick just about any coords with 2,x,y and you will see almost nothing but undeveloped cities named commander.nnnnnnnn or Lord.nnnnnnnn and a few random player names scattered around.

    It has the look of bot program creating alt accounts.

    If anything is done, it should be to scrub Realm 2.

    But if you really want any interest in this game, it should probably be restarted from scratch.

    Of course you will need to stop introducing glitches and bugs which heavily slant the playing field.
