Hi everyone,

I wanted to use this moment to share a statement from our dev team regarding the state of the Summer Tournament and the participants that have found & used exploits to gain an advantage on the qualifiers.

Rest assured that our team is carefully cleaning the leaderboards, however, if a player discovers a glitch that we were not aware of, there is nothing we can really do against this. It’s something that, for now, we must tolerate. We should not blame the users for trying to score the highest times on the race as long as they only use the tools that are given to them.

We will be working to fix this glitches from future editions of the tournament but as it stands now we will not be disqualifying those who use them.

Thanks for your understanding.

Pepper, is that statement not a contradiction in terms? How can you clean the leaderboards and then claim that the players who have used the glitches have done nothing wrong?

Glitches are not technically cheats: Glitches are available by just using the game as-is, without using any external cheats/hacks.

Not necessarily a position everyone subscribes to, but that's what it is.

This is the Spanish LB on Android. I don't know if Android version has glitches or not, but none of us seem to have found any according to our times...

This is an honest (OMG) and pragmatic position, other than cancelling the event there's probably not another option.

The problem is that you swatted everyone with foreign IP's and that's also been allowed in the game forever. You shouldn't have done that without considering the bigger issue that exists with flags/countries/regions/IP's. Because you've allowed it in the past you have provided tacit approval, changing that mid-event is not cool at all and you need to be very clear how you're going to handle that in the future so there are no surprises. By the way, there's nothing in the game that says you need to have a flag that represents the country you're currently playing in... because that would be impossible for many people... so what is the final word on that rule?

...their  'country - flag - ip' statements on this don't hold water and they darn well know it.

P3 (Bayad) is ex Garuda clan so certainly Indonesian, this team has been using french flag for a long while but most of them have turned back to their real flag lately, he must be using a french IP through VPN, et voilà !
