How many ranks did you climb up after the famous "weeding out the cheaters" after last ANB?

Makes me wonder if this happened in previous ANBs where you wouldn't be able to notice since everyone had 70 gear.

      Its very unlikely that any of those were found off drops either because getting the set piece you want is one thing, getting the attributes you need is another.

      For there to be this many accounts with the same gear just makes it blatantly obvious that something is going on here. I hope these accounts get cleared up so every legit player gets the ranks they deserve.
      Glad it's not just a few noticing the lack of drops at that level. It's ridiculous. Not one 73+ dropped for me

        The exploit was fixed before the weekend, but 74+ gears guys will stay in the LB, that's for sure.

          To avoid any confusion, the Bronze #3 LBs have NOT been finalized (cleaned).
          Let's assume that I'm Rank 51 in ANB Bronze LB (uncleaned LB). If Devs caught 5 exploiter/cheaters in top 50 and removed them from LB, is there any chance that my rank on LB will moved up from Rank 51 to Rank 46?

            Well, now this is way apart from what I wanted to know
            I too doubt the theory of lucky drops as cause for inventories full of 74s, but I never asked about them in this thread.

            Clearly everyone is sensitive to the cheater-related things happening at the moment.
            We all as fair players have a feeling of being left behind, but there's other threads to talk about that, I think.

              Drops are limited to level 72. To get a level 73+ you must craft the item.

              I just have to consider myself lucky as I crafted my first epic since they upped the equipment level limit during this bronze just after reaching level 70 and swapping out my leveling rare gear for level 70 epics. My first epic was a cap and low and behold it popped out a 74. My master level is 50 but I really only craft during ANBs.

              Again, you will NEVER find a drop over 72 with the current schema in place.

              EDITED: Edited to grey out erroneous remarks. I need to not post when I am exhausted.

                I finished with rank 22 on the Bounty Hunter Leaderboard this time. I'm pretty sure there are only 2-4 legit players above me on the board.

                    I agree!

                    It would take about 351 crafting attempts to make a full set of level 74 equipment. See my breakdown here:

                    https://forum.makingfun.com/forum/et...ent#post146671

                    Considering the fact that most of the people we've seen with full sets of level 74 equipment did not have any level 75 equipment, it's worth noting that with this many crafting attempts, it would be incredibly unlikely to not end up getting at least 2 level 75 items in the mix, as I predict you would see 1 level 75 item per 100 crafting attempts based on a 1% chance to craft a level 75 item.

                    I would be surprised if anyone actually spent over $2k on a bronze event, but that doesn't mean no one would. In other games, I've seen people drop a couple thousand each week. One of my close friends was a software developer for one such game, and he told me that some players have accounts worth over $100,000. However, I don't believe that we're seeing a sudden influx of people who are each spending $2k to get geared up for ANB. It seems like something else might be afoot.

                    It makes me wonder, didn't any of these people think it might look suspicious if they had a full set of level 74 equipment and perfect damage rolls on their weapons during a 12 hour event?

                      Several people have reported finding level 75 items as drops. I am one of those people. I found a sweet pair of level 75 Havoc Boots with useful stats, in a level 90 trial. I also got 3 or 4 useful level 73 items as drops from TL 100 runs while leveling up during ANB.

                      I dig the new profile picture, btw.

                        Something definitely stinks to high heaven when you look at the boards, especially for a short duration event like ANB. We know that there are ways of exploiting the game and comments have come that the developers are plugging some but you will never be able to stop everything especially considering the offline aspect of Eternium.

                        Personally I feel that the vigilant community that raises red flags is the best way to contain offenders.Just feed there should be prudence in publicly applying particular labels to individuals.

                        Thanks for the thoughtful presentation.

                        Thank you for the correction. I don't like to be wrong. Providing bad information is a cardinal sin to me. I should not have made that statement without immediately providing sources.

                        Thanks about the avatar. The joys of a simple image search.

                          I got bumped out of the warrior top 10 by 5 seconds! I hope the 74s get cleaned out.
                          How?? I got one lvl 72 and considered myself lucky lol what CL did you end up with? Were you just able to farm TL 100 way more than me?

                            Yes... In bronze #2 (or 1?) every mage in top100 with Korean prefix had a near perfect legendary (not celestial) Integralas Mantle except for one player. This kind of distribution could not be seen among the other players. So it was around 29/30 (near) perfect against like 5 out of the rest non-celestial IM.

                                They were still giving away Custom Legendary Items back then I thought? That would account for an IM with great stats (without it being a Celestial). That was always my first go-to piece in the old ANB format because they so rarely dropped.
