Accusing someone of cheating and discussing specific ingame bans are 2 different things.
I have left this thread go as it is so that it can be used to help change things for the better. As I have said in other posts, stay within the rules of the forum and a post will remain.
This thread in itself is borderline on what they used to allow but I see it as an avenue to learn what problems there is and hope that I can help you get things fixed for the better. Customer service is everything no matter what business you are in so follow forum rules and just note that if I see something that may be out of line then I will remove it or edit it. I am not passing out any penalties unless someone just posts stupid stuff.
So keep the discussion going if you wish but let's stay on the topic, no flaming and no discussion about specific bans.
Let me also say that thru experience. If you are not on an account that has been banned then you do not have any first hand knowledge of what is really going on. So speculating about what you heard took place or not took place is only hearsay and really does nothing to add to this conversation.
Let me also add....I started playing Travian at the end of 2007. Have played every year since then so can understand about the cheating and other stuff that happens here. I began working on this forum in 2014 and have seen plenty of the same threads started and even about some of the same players banned. It is an endless cycle that never stops. People cheat and then lie to others about their cheating. So without 1st hand knowledge then you really do not know.
Customer service is spotty hence this thread and discussion. You know in time customer service will be improved as the right people work to get things done. Big question I have is who is going to fix all those who will always cheat because they have no confidence in their own skill?
