Hacked by the same hacker simultaneously.

From 12th May to 17th May this user "Arch" hacked me 18 times in a row, except two hacks from others :(

I didn't even retraced a single hack, still I popped up in his/her search results repeatedly.
How the hell someone finds a user 18 times within 6 days and chooses to hack every time?

Either the person is abusing (which is very unlikely) or the Search Algorithm is totally messed up (very likely) ;)

OK, even if its possible somehow, is it fair that a high leveled hacker smashes you over and over within a short timespan? Yeah, my reputation is relatively higher than average for level 42, but does that mean I'll have to get roasted by the same user for the rest of my life? :x

Now I understand how did he/she (Arch) climbed up at the top of the leaderboard. :lol:

TricksterArts needs to tweak the search algorithm.
Do you have any suggestions? :|

Aw man I would be pissed.. I think for a short term solution maybe the search should block you coming up on that person's search after a couple of times

This is not my first message regarding Arch today :P Your title of "Hacked by the same hacker simultaneously." is a bit clickbaity though, since the attacks were always at least 3 hours apart - I would've read it regardless you know? ;)

I've combined the data provided here with the info I received previously and the conclusion is .... they're probably ready for some sleep REAL Soon! Seriously though, everything seems fine in regards to the targeting of individual players. They're just powering their way to the top of the leaderboard. ;)

While I doubt that the fact they will be wanting sleep is an issue it still does not solve the fact that this is at this point no longer a game about hacking, it's a " I can beat you any time so your resources are basically mine allready" game , I will admit to suffering from this myself ( not as many but names do repeat in my list) , to say that I bleed resources would be accurate. That said the problem is not that I can't defend myself it's that the same person who has repeatedly proven that they can break my network is more or less handed my network again, which as the OP has shown happens, the result , we only ever progress if we buy protection.

This is the ugly truth about Hackers these days. A simple algorithm tweak could prevent it. Wonder what Trickster Arts is doing these days. :(

Retrace and 100% him. Guaranteed he won't ever retrace you again.
