Hall of Shame


Above you see the leaderboard for number of "Versus Kills" for MSWM.  Lets take a quick look at the math for these scores:

DarkGamingLord and finalark have both posted a rather impressive ~9.2 Quintillion kills.   I don't know too much about math, but that sounds like alot of kills.  I wonder how that works out to kills per minute or kills per second?  Lets do some generous rounding and say that the game has been in existence for 2 years, which equals to about 63 million seconds.  If you do the division, this score equals 146 billion kills per second for every second/minute/day/week over the 2 year period.  Wow, guys, pretty impressive!  

Ok, so maybe the first 2 scores are hacks, lets take a look at the next long grouping.  They all are about 2.15 billion kills (quite a step down from 9.2 quintillion - come on guys, your slacking).  Doing the math, these equal 34 kills per second, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.  I take it back, you guys aren't slackers at all - you're just not as good of cheaters as DarkGamingLord and finalark.

In summary, I give kudos to these pranksters - its a good laugh.  The hall of shame award really belongs to Z2Live or Apple Gamecenter for letting these scores sit there for the past 6+ months without doing anything about them or trying to stop the hacks on this game.

  2. @MetalStorm Forever: You might want to file a Bugreport in the Support section of the official forum. Headline should start with "BUG:". At least I got a reaction, when I reported two bugs this way lately.

  3. I believe the correct number is 9 hextillion.

    I'm quite good at math, if I do say so myself. Modest to, I might add:-)

    3. okay, your right, but it also happens to be 9 trillion in Germany/U.K. LOL how about that, their math is even more screwy than ours.

      I looked it up.

    5. Here's the page I assume Night Fury went to:
      http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/units/large.html
      Apparently, this number can be called any of 9 quintillion, 9 trillion, or 9 hexillion, depending on where you are in the world.

    6. HA! thank you sporillium, so if I'm from somewhere else, I'm right. And no, it's not the page I went to (at least I think it wasnt) I just typed in what is the number 9,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 called?, and I clicked on the first page to come up.

  6. HEY! numbers 1&2 both have the same scores! how about that? I'll bet their the same person. Or a very jealous person.

    1. Wrong. They both hacked the game for the highest score possible. That's why.

      Delete
    2. why would the highest score be 9,223,372,036,854,775,807? just wondering why it's not a round number, but then again if it were a round number, it would be even more apparent that they cheat.

  8. Speaking of ranking...
    Just a small advice if you want to be listed as top rated 50k SR in "Skill Rating":
    If you're at SR 49996~49999, even if you pass 50k SR, your SR on Game Center would still be at 49996~49999.
    You have to have your SR at 49995 and win/draw against lower SR to make it 50k SR. (Or be at 49975 and win/draw against higher SR)
    There's about 130 players who reached 50k SR, but 50 more players who don't care or just didn't know becomes stuck at 49996~49999 SR (who are likely well above 50k SR) and their ranking becomes lower as many other players reach exactly 50k SR.
    If you want to make adjustment, you have to lose and win again until you hit exactly 50k SR.
    Hope this helps for some.

    3. Someone claimed a new plane called warrior, but no photo and no further response. I think that we just wait and see, do not expect too much.

    4. ryanlin is your GC ryanlin 2/2 something like that? sparrow plane w/ credits equip raams/valkyrie?

    6. Hello, w®x and Stan the Man.
      I have two GCs, ryanlin 1/2 and ryanlin 2/2 both are me. i usually fly weapon class planes with credit weapons, but sometimes i fly different class planes.
      I do not fly a particular plane, i always change planes to fly. i can much understand people's thoughts, tactics, strengths, weaknesses, after i flew the planes they are using.
      I am much better when i use weapon class planes than agility and defense class ones. Actually i am not good at agility class planes, sometimes (strangely not every time) i just can't dodge the coin missiles, and this only happened when i fly agility class planes ><.
      ps. i rarely uses coin missiles, but i do use them when i try to rematch some guys who are really good at coin missiles or fly the GE.

    7. do you have FB account ryanlin? add me both! You know my GC name right? we played a few times already...

  10. I noticed those scores a while ago! They still make me laugh whenever I see them. Yeah, that guy got a thousand kills per second since before the universe existed. Seems legit...

  11. God must've liked the game alot.
    wonder why He'd choose the name 'DarkGamingLord'?

  12. I reckon the warrior will only be out once the Saratoga and striker is gone. Should I get the striker or wait for the warrior?

  15. why is has this never been fixed?

  16. when is the skin to win winner be chosen?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Z2Live on purpose to keep the score fixed.... since hackers modified the numbers.... if you ran into real top 10( here 3~13), your new kills will never update any more!

    It's just a mirror of how your inner self look at those numbers....could be evil, could be nothing....

  18. Z2live should really fix the respawn glitch. Recently, I have been crashing into mountains before you can finish respawning. It usually happens if your opponent is at a very low altitude near mountains. I end up constantly spectating while my opponent gets over 10 kills because I keep crashing. I was also able to use this low-altitude glitch against others players so I don't think it is a hack. I remember Z2 saying they fixed a respawn bug before, but I feel like it made it worst by putting you in front of your opponent or right into a mountain.

    1. I've had this same problem too! This really needs to be fixed because it is very annoying.

    2. That ended up being the final straw for me, prompting me to delete MSWM at long last and play only SGAS. It seemed like I was always spawning right in front of my opponent with my back to him, or under the terrain, or just inches above the terrain flying nose down.

      Delete
    3. we need to play each other in SGAS. What skill are you, what planes do you use? (in SGAS)

      I'm almost to 30000 skill.

  19. Archilles is out and now for 290 coins. Is it worth buying?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When it first came out, Achilles was 390 coins. Now, Z2 dropped to price by 100 coins. The plane is good, but for 290 coins, it is still not worth it.

      Delete
    2. Just blew an Achilles out of the sky 3-0 with my KD-90 Sphynx. We both were armed with RAAM missiles and had a +10'000 skill rating. The Achilles lack of agility is a major disatvantage in versus matches. Stealth of the Achilles was not really noticeable as I always had a quick lock-on. You do get the Achilles for its plane skin not for its stats. Performance whise you are better of with the Sphynx.

  21. The highest score number in the list above is also the same exact highest score number in "fruit ninja." Not a coincidence since DarkGamingLord is also on the fruit ninja top 10 all time leaderboard!

  22. His interest is
    not kills or skill of MSWM
    but scores or achievement of games of Game Center
    (or how well he hacked)
    So he is not Lord of MSWM but Dark Lord of Games

  25. new version of sky gamblers is out! yay

    1. All it does is 'optimize it for the iPhone 5" and I have a feeling it will add a bug or two. This happens every time a new iDevice comes out: Every app in the app store gets a new update, usually filled with bugs because the programmers rushed to get the update out before all the little technical bits of the new device were known to anyone. Then the second wave of updates to fix those bugs comes out a few days/weeks later.

  26. So does anyone believe that someone could get a score of 100000 in survival mode? My high score in survival mode is about 18500 and that took about 1 hour to get!

    1. It was once possible, but not now. In Version 4.0.0, there was a glitch where if you flew above an altitude of 3000 metres, the opponents wouldn't shoot missiles at you. It is still possible nowadays, but it takes patience. Recommended planes are Dragon or Green Eagle. Co-op.

      Delete
  27. There are few other players who are hackers who are not obvious based on the ranking.
    I met a player who uses green eagle who takes cover "inside" the mountain and waits for its opponents to ram into the mountain or it shoots whenever there's opportunity.
    Luckily I found his weakness and shot him down once.
    Then I did the low-altitude trick and made him blow up inside the mountain.
    It's funny because he's not suppose to blow up inside a mountain. (It glitched for him)
    However, the scary thing is the one that should have blew inside the mountain kept flying away and the hacker respawned elsewhere so there were two of him! lol
    I was like WTF?
    Seriously... these hackers crack me up.
