Ranked scoring bug or exploit: a win recorded as a draw

Postby Armageddon_China » Thu 9 Aug 2018 07:53

This morning I played a 1v1 ranked match against a Mr.cymrak.

I was winning the match in terms of conquest points. He surrendered. The system did not immediately score the match. So I left. Then I returned a few hours later to discover that the match had been scored as a draw.

From the replay, I was able to access the profile stats of Mr.cymrak. His numbers were 8 draws, 0 losses, 0 wins, from a total of 8 ranked matches. I recall, it was 3 draws, 0 losses, 0 wins, at the time of the end of the match. So my match was recorded as a draw, clearly. And, evidently, he had managed to do the same to 4 other players, in the space of a few hours.

I happened to record the match, and I also still have the replay. It is clearly a win. Included in the video is a screenshot of his stats.

So, obviously, there is a bug or a shortcoming with the ranked scoring system. Either the messenging from the client to the server is not encrypted, and he is injecting code or parameters, or else there is some other thing that he is exploiting.

The match ended in a surrender. There was not a disconnection, or any connection notices during the match.

8 draws from his first 8 ranked matches suggests to me Mr.cymrak has found a way, perhaps inadvertently, to cheat.

Eugen, the exploit threatens to ruin Wargame ranked.

Correcting my stats would be appreciated, but it is certainly necessary to find the exploit and stop it.

Please pass this issue, described here in this thread, onto Eugen support.

With regard to Eugen's support form, it seems, the bug or exploit has nothing to do with me, but with the player Mr.cymrak, so there is no point in my sending details of my computer. Also I can't seem to find any .rpl3 files for the form, only .wargamerpl2 files, which the form does not accept.

Anyway, I will now also post here screenshots that prove the exploit, for those who do not want to watch the replay that I have posted at Twitch.

The thing to notice is My.cymrak's stats of 8 draws from 8 ranked matches, despite his loss to me, earlier today. 8 also suggests I am not the only victim of the exploit.

Contacting the support does not mean we believe the problem comes from you.

It is just the best way to pass the issue to the good people and keep track of it.

So please message the support at https://www.eugensystems.com/contact-our-support/ and they will then work on the exploit/bug. :D

I can't seem to post the support form.

Maybe the .rpl3 file that the form wants is Steel Division. I can only find .wargamerpl2 files on my computer.

I do have the replay and can access it through the game. And from that I can still get to his Wargame profile, to view his stats.

Apparently, Mr.cymrak is still at it. This morning, he is 16 draws, 0 wins, 0 losses, from a total of 16 ranked matches. He is now ranked 1762 and has an ELO of 1541.

Here are screenshots:
