Attention Commanders! I have an announcement regarding the Base Edit Glitch that has been briefly discussed here on the forums.
We have confirmed that a handful of players are taking advantage of a glitch in This Means WAR! This glitch allows a player to stack buildings on top of one another in their base, causing other players to crash the game when attacking. We are currently working on a code fix to this problem. In the meantime, we are reaching out to players requesting that they discontinue taking advantage of this known exploit. We are offering a "Grace Period" of 48 hours to players to readjust their base layouts to avoid using this glitch. If your base is clear of stacked buildings after the Grace Period is over, you have nothing to worry about. If after 48 hours we find that your base is still using the exploit, we will be deducting medals earned through the exploit. Continued exploit of this error will ultimately result in a ban.
Starting Friday this week, I will begin using all of the tools at my disposal to locate bases that are utilizing this glitch. Please check your base layouts for stacked buildings and rearrange them. If you suspect a player is using this glitch, please report them to me immediately through a private message so that I can investigate. Public accusations of cheating in any thread will cause it to be shut down, so please use private messages when attempting to reach me.
I have been spending the majority of my time in the studio working on a fix to this glitch with the engineering team. We have a fix ready and are in the process of testing and verifying it. However, a critical mass of players are now abusing this glitch, forcing us to act before we can fix the problem through code. We apologize for the inconvenience this glitch has caused everyone and are doing our best to fix the situation as quickly as possible. If you have any questions please direct them here.
Instructions on how to avoid this glitch:
To check your layouts, all you need to do is move a single building in each layout, then hit the "Finish" button. If all 3 layouts save without a crash, then you are in the clear!
TL;DR: There is a glitch in TMW! in Base Edit mode. You can stack buildings to avoid being attacked in matchmaking. Fix your layouts ASAP or expect to be banned and lose Medals. Update with a fix is coming soon.
