I noticed a new player to the top 10 list that wasn't even on the radar yesterday, Matt. This guy only has a lvl 2 DH but seems to have managed getting at least 1k trophies in less than a day. In addition when I clicked on Matt's town at one point in time I captured the screenshot showing him with 10k trophies.

I was under the impression noob farming was fixed but apparently not or something more devious is going on here...

Screenshot 1 of Matt on LBs:

Screenshot 2 of Matt with 10k trophies:

39803

No hacking involved. The QA team is doing some testing on the live servers. I believe the issue they are looking into is attacking with high trophy counts.

Matt, Yams and Asdf are test accounts. They will only be on the leaderboards for a short bit longer. They may pop up again in the near future as they regress the fix.

Thanks for pointing it out :D Our apologies for any concerns raised.

To help you track the timing of this issue, it's started to get bad again... Seems to be related to server load/higher volume play times.

Devs, can you do us a favor and name the accounts clue us in, , ike STS_TST_XXX. Many players dont read the forums daily and lot of chat going on about this. Just give some special designation about this. Thanks.

A new client with a fix for the issue is in Apple approval. Once that is reviewed we'll push the new version live on all platforms.
