Some users have decided to create numerous multiple accounts in order to up vote their own builds while also seriously down voting others builds. This type of action will result in a ban of your IP address.

For those concerned we are easily able to undo the malicious voting to correct the build scores.

Sincerely
The TEAM

Good job staying on top of it. Pretty unfair to just up vote your own build over and over and down vote others.

Nice to see that you keep the track of it. For such a behavior, also do you take any actions of making those ppl votes not count?

Yes as FlashJ said, we will be undoing their dirty deeds, especially votes.

If you spot anything that you think is abuse just let us know via feedback form and include pertinent links, otherwise I ask that nobody goes pointing fingers until someone is proven guilty by the court of MOBAFire. Let's keep it friendly, justice will be served :)

Yes all sub accounts and votes from those accounts are removed from the system.

But can you guys change the mechanics around so that when others vote, they are forced to leave a comment? I'm almost positive that people down others builds so that theirs will appear better than the rest. And they probably have several accounts that they're working with when they do this. I'd be really appreciative if this was made possible! Thanks.

Rest assured it will all be taken care of. We're in the process of overhauling the voting system, it should only take another day or so. We will have more details for you once we're all done and the lashings have been doled out.

We are not taking this lightly at all. I have no pity for people that behave in this way and we know exactly who they are.
