  • Auto-Loss Exploit

    If a player does not have any star buildings in their town, any PvP match against them results in an auto-loss for you (and an auto-win for them).

    I’m not exactly sure how this is happening ... if they’re purposely not placing star buildings or if it’s some bug. Either way, it doesn’t give the attacking player a chance. Losses against these towns are rank and trophy killers.

    I think I've seen that town-- Kneiterjong or something like that. Personally I think it's a bug and not someone using an exploit.

    Anyhow, next time you encounter it, try using the Retreat button. Last time I did that, I got the win! It's bizarro world! Me thirsty, me drink sand!

      Hmm ... don't think I've ever encountered that town. The one I went up against was Apocalypto. I know this was happening often enough that at least one person I know stopped playing because of it. Hopefully it's addressed and fixed soon. In the meantime, I'll try retreating and see if that works! Thanks for the input.

    Thank you both for posting about this concern. I'm going to send it to our QA team to have a look to ensure we're updating any needed elements.

      That person that Vanessa is referring to is me. I completely stopped playing this game, as it is a game breaking bug. The retreat option that a previous poster mentioned never worked for me. After receiving 15 losses without actually getting an attempt, I stopped playing (technically it was 30 losses, because these bugged events were revenge battles...so I already lost to them from them attacking me). The match ups with these bugged/exploiting players wouldn't stop (even after losing two ranks). Matching with them happened every day with multiple match ups each day.

          Thanks for making sure the development team knows about this. This is beta so things like this are expected, but I wanted to make sure the KI mobile development team knew how bad that bug could be for someone unfortunately stuck in that cycle. Looking forward to the fix !!!!

          Hi
          when you cash 15 defeats without real attempt I think it's not much
          personally I cashed 27 losses: p
