No solution to remove sanctuary hackers from the game

Hello ludia. Months ago you were made aware of the issue of gps spoofers using hacks and bots to scan the maps for high level sanctuaries and harass players.
This issue is still not fixed.

As you have pretty much raised the price of boosts now and boosts are vital to having a level 20 sanctuary, what do you want me to do as a customer, ludia?
I’m paying a lot of money and for what for boosting dinos only for the sanctuary that are no good in arena? and for that to not even benefit my gameplay if I have to be battling hackers and their sanctuary filling bots.

You dont do anything about it ludia. The linked post shows all that happening 3 months ago but the player was reported even earlier than that.

Lock sanctuaries for only the first person to activate it for the 2 weeks to be able to approve dinos being added to them. it is not even being unfair to the general public as you littered sanctuaries 3 of them per each city block or more . they are everywhere.

Sanctuaries have been an excellent way to farm rare/exclusive DNA, and this person keeps bombing our santuaries with these dinos so it’s unfair because these spoofer ruins our hard work in the sanctuary.

Our Alliance, along with several other alliances that share our high level sanctuary, have all worked very hard to get our sanctuary to level 20 asap every time so we can all benefit. But this spoofer, out of personal vendetta or boredom or whatever messed up reason he has, is ruining our hard earned sanctuary. It is clear he is targetting us, because what person (spoofer even) in the right mind would put commons into a high level sanctuary, instead of simply helping it grow and obtaining some epic dna from it. He has even “travelled” (Spoofed) across the world to many countries to spam his commons into our sanctuary…

Ludia please, do something about sanctuary hackers, and spoofers in general. They ruin the game for everyone, and apparently not even to their own benefit. They do not buy your products and pay you money, they just hack it in, so keeping them in the game is not to your benefit either. If you cannot do that, please make a way so that alliance shared sanctuaries cannot be accessed by random players (unless they are friends in the game, to allow family to join etc.)

Thank you

we get the very same in our alliance as well and like you it is the top most ( highest level sanctuary ) that always gets hit by people outside the alliance running roughshod ( taking over everything in sight ) and completely stuffing up all our alliances hard work of establishing these sanctuaries in the first place.
the alliance leader needs the ability to * lock * the sanctuaries that belong to their alliance to stop outsiders bombarding them left, right & center stealing dna from every last dino in sight from the top level sanctuaries… plus all the other bugs being experienced lately by alliance members but this we all consider to be a top priority first allow the alliance leaders to lock out potential outsiders / scammers / hackers from gaining access to valuable sanctuaries once and for all … please we are asking you nicely LUDIA block & lock time thanks ! :thinking: :smirk_cat: :thinking:

Right! Its hard enough to get a level 20 sanctuary without these spoofers making it way harder. If leaders could somehow lock the sanctuaries and give permission to who can place a creature there, that would definitely help.

There are so many sanctuary’s all over the place, there is no reason they couldn’t be made so alliances or originators can lock them.

We work so hard to build up our sanctuary for all of us to use and to have someone come in a steal spaces after we’ve taken so many precautions-changing locations, being quick to replace them when they leave etc- it’s incredibly frustrating and this problem should have been solved already!!

This is beyond frustrating!! We have worked hard not only to build these level 20 sanctuaries but to network with other alliances to share ours and get theirs shared with us. A key part of that networking is leaving sanctuary open spaces for members in other alliances to place dinos into. So not only is this spoofer who chases us around the world cluttering our sanc with junk, they’re preventing us from using it to network with other alliances. Souring the game experience for literally hundreds of players!

And Professor KP leader of Killer Raptors has as mentioned put tons of money into boosting his Ornithomimus so it can level our sanctuary… so you have some very angry and PAYING customers on the one hand. And a spoofer on the other. Ludia, it’s clear from a business standpoint alone what needs to be done.

I don’t understand why one player can’t b dealt with when all their info has been reported - there is a tremendous amount of work and planning that goes into sharing level 20 sanctuaries so it is very disheartening and discouraging that someone (same person over and over) can continuously bomb other’s hard work so easily despite all precautions taken to prevent this exact thing from happening - there has to b a way to have more control over our sanctuaries

No sean envidiosos, puede ser cualquier persona que vaya pasando y vea un lugar libre sabiendo que un santuario de alto nivel puede darle mas ADN. Es un santuario publico no es de ustedes…

Translated From Spanish

Do not be envious, it can be anyone who goes by and sees a free place knowing that a high level sanctuary can give you more DNA. It is a public sanctuary is not yours …

Alejandro el santuario lo pueden usar todos, el problema aquí es que esa persona solo nos está acosando, porque no hay otra manera de decirlo, como dicen antes esta situación tiene ya 3 meses y nosotros siempre trabajamos para conseguir mejores recompensas para todos. Además no es que esa persona ponga dinos útiles ahí majungasaurus, nundasuchus, irritator Gen 2, etc. Esa persona solo lo hace para robar el santuario y seguir acosando a nuestra alianza.

Alejandro the sanctuary can be used by everyone, the problem here is that this person is just harassing us, because there is no other way to say it, as they say before this situation has already 3 months and we always work to get better rewards for everyone. It is also not that this person puts useful dinos there majungasaurus, nundasuchus, irritator Gen 2, etc. That person only does it to steal the sanctuary and continue harassing our alliance.

Pues esperemos que los desarrolladores hagan algo y se resuelva el problema así como muchos más en las proximas actualizaciones

Its time to remove global sanctuaries and implement alliance specific ones. One sanctuary for the alliance. Have different “cages” for the different dinos. Each member can put up to 4 in, but now since it’s a collective you dont have to worry about one being taken over. You just go to a specific dino cell and interact with that specific dino as long as someone put one in. Also, remove the tine period and DNA returned for a dino in the sanctuary. I can put a trex in for 5 min, a raptor in for 2 months, etc. Take the minuscule amount of DNA from return and add it to the FIPs. Sanctary will reset with the change of alliance rewards, which is usually 2 weeks. In the event they go to 3 weeks due to holiday is an added bonus. Or you could reset it monthly with the monthly rewards
