    Hello Space Pilots,

    As we’ve recently reminded everyone, cheating, account ownership discrepancies, and similar terms and conditions violations will not be tolerated in the Jackpot Arena.

    This is the third month in a row that we have been required to invalidate the results of the Jackpot Arena, and now we are being forced to rethink how the JPA is currently implemented and used.

    We are placing any future Jackpot Arenas on hold until further notice. During this period we will discuss plans for the JPA, both internally and with the community.

    Unfortunately, there are certain critical factors that we currently cannot control when players are signing on for the JPA. Due to this, it is only after careful, manual investigation that we are able to detect cases of foul play.

    We know that the vast majority of our player base has a strong desire for fair play and desires a legitimate chance at winning in this sort of competition. Unfortunately, given the value of the prize in this competition, some players have felt too strongly encouraged to find any opportunity possible to cheat.

    When this happens, it wastes everyone’s time and money, and creates an unpleasant experience for everyone involved.

    With this in mind, we want to take some time and figure out how to not only fix this, but also to come up with a solution that will be interesting to a wider player base and better convey our ultimate aim for the game. Our goal is to provide properly incentivized PVP competition, in a fair environment, and reward as many eligible contestants as possible. Currently, the JPA is not doing this.

    Until we get the proper solution in place, as stated above, all upcoming Jackpot Arena battles are on hold.


    Yours,

    RickDekard
