Extensions: Good vs Bad

So since the last post, I guess we should clear up whats considered cheating and whats not.

Bad

  • Anything that auto clicks anything things is bad.
  • Anything that tries to manipulate your score is bad.
  • Posting scores manually to our server using a standalone client is bad.

Good

Anything that gives you more info is considered ok.

We are not banning extensions altogether.

Here is some random info…

A lot of people want a fuller leaderboard. We are still debating whether its useful enough or not, so…

The api to fetch a leaderboard is:

https://apmgui.dripstat.com/rest/l3/game/lb

It works for anonymous users.

Here is some random code

    public class LBData
    {
        public final String name;
        public final Long score;
        public final int rank;
    }
@RequestMapping(value = "/l3/game/lb", method = RequestMethod.POST)
@ResponseBody
public GameReturnData fetchGameLeaderboard(@RequestParam String name) 
{
    GameReturnData returnData = new GameReturnData();
    returnData.lb = gameService.createLeaderboard(name);
    return returnData;
}
</pre>

I will leave the rest upto your imagination.
