House just got hacked

Got back into the game cause of Cullman's app. House was still there from last time, and no one had cracked it except for Blip so I just rebuilt it. Someone just came in and walked right through and solved it without and tools at all without any prior scouting trips. This is literally impossible. I remember why I quit this game now...


It's a trap!

Re: House just got hacked

Well what was this person's name.  I am hoping my non-random name thing will help this problem tremendously.

Re: House just got hacked

Tate?  His value rises quickly and his house is full of concrete, powered pits and pitbulls.

Maybe not, but the only suspicious house I can see.  Does anyone know who owns Tate?

Re: House just got hacked

My house has also been brute forced with just the right amount of tools, my paintings are now on exposition in the Tate Gallery. I've bought all the William Beebes to protect myself ;-)

Re: House just got hacked

I wondered who had got into your house, Gyuri.  I've made a lot of progress with Tate - I'll break my pledge and post a map after my next foray.

Edit:  Here's the map.

The red tinted parts were from an earlier scout, prior to Tate resetting and changing his map.  D = Pitbull

Re: House just got hacked

Did someone report this to Jason? He could block his account. The vault is clearly in the top left. I wonder why he never attacked one of my houses? Maybe I'll give it at try with the nice tools I have right now?

Re: House just got hacked

@Eppfel, I'm coming for Rodriguez as soon as chills are over.  I finally worked out how to do that part without using that expensive tool.  Tool-less this time (well, I'll carry my 2k of gift tools, but otherwise...)

Maybe its you (joke). I haven't been visited either but i am currently only worth $500 so less surprising. If i manage to scrape some tools together i might try and ladder up to that dog just to see what is hidden behind the door big_smile

Also an off topic question but cba making new thread. Do houses get removed off the list if no one logs in for a certain length of time? Just seen some old names coming back with same design....

Re: House just got hacked

@Eppfel, perhaps he hasn't visited you as even with your map, it's bloody hard to work out where to go!

I just died again thanks to the simplest of mistakes: Stepping on a switch a move too early sad

He visited, but did not rob me. Rodriguez, ok. But Smith. Even if you do not figure it out, I had 30k and with the right tools it is still a beneficial investment.

Nope, house stay until they're robbed blind. And even then, if you return, the house is in it's last condition. Meaning a good house can be put up on the list in no time.

Re: House just got hacked

The deed is done. Tate was finally worth robbing. Too easy, because too predictable. The safe was – as suspected – in the top right left corner. I needed 30 saws, 2 explosives and 1 dog meat. A shame for the six ladders and one crowbar I brought.
I hope your accusations were right, because I trashed the place. Let's see, if he comes for me now.

What happened to Smith?  Did someone solve it correctly or was it Tate enacting some revenge?

Predictable!

2nd guy. Solved everything, but one trap. Even my brand-new one without even looking.  I'm 99% sure he hacked the map. Going to report it to Jason.

Re: House just got hacked

After MANY attempts on this house, I can confirm that it's not possible to solve without the map.  Damn, how many times have you changed the first trap after I found the answer?

So, you were the one. I thought so. Yeah changed it thrice, but at least there is no commit. It just takes endurance.

Re: House just got hacked

My guess is that you've done a little more than change the basic 'route' this time.  I think I'll have to take some tools to have another look.

Re: House just got hacked

Thanks!  I'll be selling the guns to pay for my house, I'm afraid.  The more I think about it, something doesn't add up here.  I haven't seen anyone take more than one gun into any house.  That means 15 times, someone has gone into Baron's house.  Yet Baron only appeared on the list (as a top page house) in the last 24 hours, meaning someone has been depositing guns there...

Re: House just got hacked

*Sigh*. I just lost it all while testing a new puzzle.  I made the new part safe, but a stray cat got away sealing me in to my new, working, safe puzzle.

Oh well, back to robbing again!

Re: House just got hacked

I think the guy has come back with another name. Out of a choice of 12 doors picked the right door then completed the right set of movements without a single mistake. Took £3000 off me sad

Name of Charles Arthur Roberts.

This was one of the "puzzles", pretty weak to look at but did it right first time with no one previously seeing it.
