Hi,
The first pages of the leaderboards are totally messed up and something really needs to be done. It's been like that since first age...

it is (people already know) to busy fixing bug on test realms before release Polaris (but rather just ignore it) worry about it later (beside don't think people care as much) rather just ignore when really to listen about pvp bug (not just you) people ranking bossing pvp (3v3/4v4) trouble winning 2v2/1v1 (some people just want some rank awful score to rank)hard time of winning pvp so, unbalance (because some rank pvp gear) taking forever to get some people go down as easy!

Some people like 90% of the people that are on the first few pages are exploiting the game which is known as "boosting" to the pvp community. Whispers are the most notorious as if you see one around the arena they have around 300 wins to 1 loss. They log on later at night when there isn't a lot of people that are pvping and use another account and get matched up against it and win easily since obviously both accounts are controlled by the same person. There is proof that they do this, but if kingsisle were to ban someone who did this there could be much controversy even though there is more than enough solid evidence in order to ban them. They have little to no pvp skill as they don't actually improve their play style by getting matched up against themselves, the only thing they are improving is their rank and most people know that the whispers are exploiting the system when not many players are active. Also you may see some people with around 0 wins to 900-1500 losses and these are the people the whispers and other "boosters" use to rank themselves up on the leaderboards

Great Job. Way to go.
Now you tell that to everyone so everyone gives a go.
We need to stop it not advertise it.

The ranking system of pvp in Wizard isn't very complex, and so it isn't hard to come up with ways to "exploit" the system with "whispers" as you describe. The truly sad thing is there are people who are pathetic enough to do it. It also makes you wonder about their activities in life, which are probably even more atrocious.

Yup that comment is so true. Pathetic is around the perfect word to describe those childish persons.

more of that call whisper both have same last name of whispers with different first name! see where proof there level 1 wizard on page 10 (3rd age pvp) not tournament he as with 81 win (which is impossible) for a storm because weak at lower level! is wizard name: Valerian Sky (more those have name in Rose) only chance of stopping them is choice 3v3 or 4v4 unless make pvp balance enough!

i think the reason is that the grandmaster arena gear is over powered and gives to high of stats for lvl 50. i have need level 50 wizards take down exalted wizards that is crazy. i fought a grandmaster with 59 universal resistace and 74 to ice and storm. its like mini jade gear that comes with damage

This thread is about cheaters not high ranked grandmasters.

My response to this is.. who cares? If you're Exalted and you reach a dramatically high rank, you'll eventually get paired up with nobody. If you're a low level, you'll only get paired up with insanely high levels compared to yours. Either way, you're ruining PvP for yourself for a number on a display screen. If you know your rank is legit, then keep it that way. If you want to ruin who you face by exploiting an increase, then you can do that too.

Well a lot of people care and it would be great to see legit leaderboards. It is true that some other issues are bigger and needs to be solved before.
