COMPLAINTS ABOUT IMPROBABLE HIGH SCORES ON AARP GAMES!

AARP's games leader board for the game 5 ROLL shows improbable high scores with regularity. 

 

AARP has yet to prevent its re-occurrence or punish its perpetrators. The Improbable high scoring is perpetrated by the same circle of individuals, many times it has been the same individual over and over.

 

5ROLL is much like Yahtzee. It has a finite maximum amount of points that can be scored, around 6,200. And yet, there's a score on the leader board today from @m850996l of 52,065. That score is impossible through play of the games. It can only get on the leader board through nefarious means.

 

Many of the same players practice this game to get good at it, I am one of them. I recently scored the highest score I have ever scored, only to have this improbable score exceed it.

 

Not one person has responded to any of my posts regarding this issue that has occurred over and over and over. There has been no transparency regarding this whatsoever.

 

If nefarious users can make an IMPOSSIBLE score onto a leader board at AARP games platform, what else can they do?

Hello all, what you’re seeing is considered cheating and not a security breach. This is not an issue unique to games.aarp.org and we are working on a comprehensive fix that will ensure these improbable high scores can't occur in the future.  

 

In the meantime, we’re working to capture and remove these high scores as they come in. We also appreciate that users report these suspicious scores when they see them. Sometimes the quickest way to a resolution is sending a complaint via the link at the bottom of every page on the site titled, “Contact Arkadium Support”. 

 

This topic is resolved and closed. Thank you.

IT HAS HAPPENED AGAIN!!!!!!

 

@AARPLynne, @AARPsneed, and @sandy ........

 

Once again, someone has posted an IMPOSSIBLE SCORE on the 5ROLL leader board.

 

@yvonnemsmith1978has input a score of 8100.

 

As I have explained before, 5ROLL's scoring is virtually the same as Yahtzee. The maximum possible score is around 6,200, give or take a hundred.

 

It is time that AARP be transparent regarding these continuous impossible high scores.

 

These breaches occur, on the average of once a week.

 

Us users are concerned about the integrity of the games since these breaches occur so frequently.

 

Beyond that, those of us that are proficient in the legitimate play of this game are disappointed when a good score is attained through play of the game only to be displaced by a BOGUS SCORE!!!!

@AARPLynne

 

Thank you for getting the bogus score removed.

 

Would you be able to tell us users why this has occurred so many times in 5ROLL and what is being done to prevent the issue from arising again?

Honestly everyone, I don't think AARP has any control over the games.  It's like playing the slot machines at a casino. Take, for instance, that I play Mahjongg solitaire daily and I can clear the board at least twice and never reach beyond my "highest" score.  I'll get to the highest score that the computer wants to give me and then start going backward to lower and lower scores. What I did notice is that the top middle tile cannot be found in some grids, and without clearing it, it is impossible to clear the board.  So, chalk it up to the good ole programmers.

I'll just keep playing for the fun of it.(And maybe go crazy doing so!)

@JudithP526204,

 

I agree that games are programmed to act in a certain manner, but that is not what I am talking about.

 

The game 5ROLL has a finite number of points that are POSSIBLE through play of the game, around 6,200 points, give or take a hundred or two.

 

Right now, there is a score of over 237,000 posted to 5ROLL'S leader board.

Once again, @AARPLynne, this very same leader board has shown an IMPOSSIBLE high score once again.

 

There has been a score of 56,000 posted by @DebraT488098.

 

As has been reported before, the maximum score attainable by legitimate play of 5ROLL is around 6,200.

 

It has only been six days since the last time this happened

 

Isn't it about time that some transparency be given us as to HOW this leader board posts IMPOSSIBLE high scores by individuals, many a time by the same individuals, over and over again.

Someone needs to check 5ROLL.

 

It has been over 24 hours and the IMPOSSIBLE SCORE of 56,000 still exists.

It has been almost 48 hours since AARP MANAGEMENT has been informed about the IMPOSSIBLE SCORES POSTED BY SOME of this game's leader board once again.

 

I have tried several methods of contact and yet, the bogus score still exists on the leader board.

 

There has been no transparency regarding this security issue because it has happened again and again and again.

 

Those of us that play this game and have become proficient at it find it disheartening that AARP MANAGEMENT allows these impossible scores to exist on the leader board day after day after day.

No sooner than AARP gets rid of one IMPOSSIBLE score, here is another one, @AARPLynne .

 

This morning the one I have complained about for two days was actually removed only to be replaced by a score of 237,852 posted by @carlton1846 .

 

As a reminder, 5ROLL scores are along the lines of Yahtzee, there is a finite maximum amount of points possible, around 6,200.

 

Please be more transparent, @AARPLynne, and tell us legitimate players how the leader board for this game gets IMPOSSIBLE SCORES posted time and again.

As one can see, it has been TWO DAYS since I reported this IMPOSSIBLE score that has been POSTED onto the 5ROLL LEADER BOARD.

 

It is still there.

 

@AARPLynne, @AARPsneed, @AARPSandyY, these scores are disheartening to those of us that practice this game, have become proficient at it, and, from time to time, post a good score. To have our score moved one spot down, in some cases, two spots down, and for the poor person in tenth place, have their excellent score removed altogether because 1st place is occupied by an IMPOSSIBLE SCORE is just not fair.

 

I know these bogus scores have been removed quickly before. But it has also taken beyond 2 days before also.

 

What is the process that takes place to remove a bogus score?

It has now been three days since I reported an IMPOSSIBLE SCORE of 237,000+ on the game 5ROLL and it is still on the leader board.

 

I don't understand why it has taken over 72 hours to address this obvious ISSUE.

 

Yes, it was a holiday week-end but I know of no organization that doesn't have an IT group available 24/7.

 

So why three days here?
