Been Banned

So i go to check the leaderboards this morning and I am missing! Was 4th on the dutch board and ~30k away from the achievement. Whenever I play i get a * next to my round position, with all the points etc not adding to my total.

So what did you do? Use a solver? Make it obvious? Sorry to hear it though.

^^^Why'd you delete your post Top Cat? I thought it was a good FYI for others playing this game.

He deleted his (imo) very informative post. He admitted to using a solver, and warned people from using it. He also said that he was getting higher scores than normal due to using a solver, only used bigger words in some games, and started from bigger words immediately and went down to smaller words.

His best tips, don't use a solver, or if you feel that you need to use a solver, don't get greedy and mix up the sizes of the words you choose.

It was a very good post of his, I don't know why he removed it. The last person I knew who cheated and "went public" about it got their account reinstated in the game.

Fair play for using a solver, it had its risks.

I have to think most of the people on the top of the leaderboards are using solvers. I find it impossible to do better than half going the normal way.

I actually score higher in Swedish game although I know not a word of it, so if they ban me cos they think I'm cheating I will go mad. Sometimes I score like 500 other times 100 how can they tell maybe I was lucky one round not the next. Besides they have to prove it surely!
Sometimes the game starts and I'm doing something else, especially if I am playing it at work and landline rings or something, so may not play it till 30 seconds in, not because I am entering words on a solver but doing something else, odd thing to get banned, unless they see you cheating and how unless they there with me.

So I checked his gamercard, and he got the champ achievement two days after he started this thread.

Maybe it was a temp banning?

anyone have an email addie to a wordament dev or someone to ask for forgiveness? I've been banned, I think I used solvers on Dutch/Spanish matches (well I know Dutch for sure). Never was able to get the one achievement, but now I can't get about half of the achievements on the windows 8 version because of it.

If you HAVE to cheat do it once, otherwise try it legit, on your march for 100 games. I got it, and I'm by no means a genius. (I did get lucky i suppose, the word was gardening)

Lucky you, if you got your 100 games. In the iOS version, I'm stuck at 56 and it will not advance.

Banned

I think I got banned also. I normally score 300-400 points but one round I got 900 (two words were quarterbacks (117) and quarterback). It has stopped tracking my total games played :/.
