    Yeah the this is wrong but I'm going to do it because ...loses the purpose. If the car runs a red light and you stip and another cars runs the light, then you decide to run it too then get pulled over you get a ticket ,go to court tell the judge that everyone else ran it before you did he isn't going to be like ohh ok fine dismissed , your probably going to get laughed at at get the fine plus Court costs .

      As this so-called "Matrix glitch" is described it's not technically cheating, rather exploiting a glitch. So banning is too strict for me. Of course, any account ban lifting should be followed by a reversing to the status the village was before entering the glitch (removing appropriately structures, upgrades, resources XP etc). This would grant kloputzer (and everyone else who did the same) one last chance, which is logical to me as they didn't do anything that's forbidden (eg. using a third-party software etc), but it's a referendum on what will follow if they repeat those unethical, but still legal (allowed by the game itself) actions

        You cheated not only the game, but yourself

        You didn't grow
        You didn't improve
        You took a shortcut and gained nothing

        You experienced a hollow victory. Nothing was risked and nothing was gained

        It's sad that you don't know the difference

          Ban time is over. My account is now completely corrupted. I was Romans, level 266 space age before using the glitch. Now I'm British, level 238, have completely different wonders, my villa is gone (for which I paid more than 50 Euros) and also about 30.000 crowns I spent on advancing research in University are wasted as well. Also they put my user name to "Player1". It's like I have a completely different account from another player. The damage from this equals about 12 months game time and hundreds of Euros.

          BHG removed everything I paid for. And to restart at level 238 even though I was at level 266 is absurd. Time to stop playing Dominations. Devs give a sh*t about fixing the game's bugs and take it out on their customers. I will contact Google for full refund of everything I spent on this game.

              Well, there is no need for that. Because the game is ruined anyway because .devs are unwilling to fix that glitch and left me with a broken account. By removing everything I paid real money for and putting my my account to a broken state instead of rolling it back a reasonable time, they effectively force me to quit the game for good. The glitch is basically their own fault and they punish the players for it. The sanction they took does not only touch things in context of the glitch they built into this game themselves. They went beyond that and removed stuff I paid for. Cheaters though who always have done nothing else than cheating are still happily doing their thing and never pay any real money. Need to give this to an attorney and get my money back.

                  Ha, and his attorney will have to deal with the court in California. What a waste of money and time rather than just asking refund from Google and continue his life.

                That doesn't have anything to do with items I purchased.

                  Give it a break. If you don't like it well stop playing. If you haven't got the message yet, you won't get sympathy from us. You used a glitch on purpose n got caught. Let's move on.

                The debate would be clearly against the OP if Nexon had not had the technical details for the glitch for some time. I’m informed that in July they fixed one entry point for the glitch, and reading the reddit post this is a new one. Maybe that’s why there is a new lead designer.

                  It isn't new to them. It was privately disclosed shortly after the last one was fixed. Which was actually the third or fourth entry point they had put a bandaid on without fixing the underlying problems.

                Oh please Kloputzer, please read TOS before you start flooding us here with multiple threads banging about the punishment you received?!

                NEXON MAY WITHHOLD, SUSPEND, MODIFY, OR TERMINATE YOUR ACCESS TO THE SERVICES FOR ANY OR NO REASON AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW
                once you get caught on violating the TOS.

                Move on.
                Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

                  kloputzer exploited a glitch out of spite which I can understand. Seeing an endless amount of hacked bases in the last 6-8 months makes my p#*s boil and I don't blame him one bit for exploiting it. This glitch should've been patched up months ago yet it's still here in April 2019.

                    It isn't fun that you got effectively banned, having the same penalty generically apply to anyone who gets caught regardless of the severity of their offense seems unfair, even if it is clearly within Nexon's rights. Especially when big obvious cheating alliances and players haven't been touched.

                    ​But you can also accept it as a chance to make a clean break. The underlying problems with the game aren't getting fixed. And you have an opportunity to get as much of a refund as you can before moving on. No game lasts forever, it is always just a question of when you will stop, not if.

                        Perhaps you could try contacting CS, explaining the situation, kindly ask them to reverse your account to what was before the glitch, instead of changing it completely and promise them that you won't exploit it again. Try this, what do you have to lose after all? I think that CS might help you much more than complaining here. If not I guess you'll have to deal with it and continue with those new parameters

                          To be honest trying/investigating a glitch like you said it is a risky business.
                          Think all that exploit the bugs in the game should be made accountable for it and get some kind of punishment.
                          Checked your domi stats (if your name here is the same as your ingame name) and it doesn't show any wierd advantage boost.
                          On the other hand you might have become this high and played it real smart to not to exceed the max builders limit while exploiting the glitch/bug.
                          Seeing others advance faster then you when using the bug and not getting banned/put back sucks.
                          But hey who tells us how you got that high, by only upgrading a trap using that bug?

                          Just don't cheat is the message, it's a good message and they should make it strict for all.
