Wordscapes Tournament Cheating!
Something should be done about it. The three times that I’ve participated in these tournaments, someone appears out of nowhere, ahead of everyone else with a huge score, about 30 minutes before the tournament is over! The only explanation for this happening, is that there is cheating going on! The people at Peoplefun should find a way to STOP this, because it is NOT fair to the rest!!
Found way to get lots of points . Trying to give you guys extra money . I think if you leave game open without resetting it , it may work . I'll try logging in close to tournament ending and help .
Hey Wordscapes technicians, can we get a top 10 of all time high scores? I’m thinking 10,000 is substantial but it would be nice to have a point of reference.
I knowonly one way to cheat: getbyhe solutions online.
Today i was 4th, we had all around 15 points. Less than 10 minutes later, some guys were at 150 points. 20 points max per game, it is at least 7 games in less than 10 minutes. So, roughly 1 games per minute. And this is all games guves you 20 points. Which is not the case. Which means that some guys make a game in, let's say 45 seconds. Even with cheats it is not possible. I guess I am better at maths than words...
Anyway, it means: there are bots, created by the developper. They won't GIVE you that many coins when you should BUY them ! So all comments like: "i did it, i am just very good with words" are made by liers !
the thing about "cheating" as you call it, is that it's undetected. maybe I'm just really good at the game, maybe I'm waiting for the bus and it's late and I have an extra 30 minutes, maybe I'm a drop dead loser that gets my jollies off by cheating, maybe I'm a writer and just really good with words.
Mikeyo, please go easy on the crystal meth. To Gattiks/Cojo/yikes or whichever cowardly moniker you use, I’ll be playing tomorrow at 4:00 pm central time. I look forward to exposing all cheaters in the group. If you play a clean tournament and can put up 8000 coins, hats off to you.
I finished 2nd in the tourney ended about 4-5 March. I did it by putting in hours, lots of them, & by having a huuuge…
Voco... Vocalb... Vocl...
I know many words…in fact I have the best words.
However, next day I got another banner saying I had actually finished 1st, & I got an extra 1k points. I can only guess the person who beat me was busted for cheating?! Although I didn't notice anything.
PS: Wait for the next one! I'm gonna whup y'all!
Actually, if you keep playing, you may just win! I came in first two tournaments ago, and came in fourth last tournament. It can be done. You just have to keep solving the puzzles. If I can do it, anyone can!
So I placed in a tournament not way up but I pressed the button too quickly while reading it & now I cant find where I can view it again to see.. know it's off topic sorry but can anyone tell me?
Was your tournament name Gattiks or Cojo? Central time zone? If so you’re a filthy cheating cur.
i won that star tournament thing in first place yesterday and i def didn't cheat so uh
y'all sound bitter as fuck lol
And now it all makes sense. Stupidly I thought Wordscapes paired you at tournament time with people at a “like” level. But if they don’t, and if people go on airplane mode and look up words, I now understand how they come out of nowhere at the end of the tournament.
Who is this Cojo that puts up 10k points 2 hours before the tournament ends? Not possible obviously. Cojo your victory methods are apocryphal.
Also, LoLo, what was your highest tournament score? I’ve won the past 6 weeks and this is the first time I’ve encountered the cheating. Curious.
lolo, i appologize. it was Hillary that mentioned your name and spoke of anograms. others admit to airplane mode so no one can see how fast they solve puzzles by having the answers. Then they suddenly get on line with a unrealistic score. Most online games are the same way with people willing to compromise their own worth just to wun. It's the mellenial intellect of everyone gets a trophy without doing anything.
I found that I could play offline. Then go online and then my score shows up. I like this game and there is no reason to cheat. You can't improve that way.
twitman, try reading my comment again. You missed the declarative sentence there hon
LoLa, by your own admission you ARE a cheater! where's the feeling of accomplishment? It of course is impossible to reason with a cheater so just do your sickly thing.
Oh for goodness sake - I agree with LoLo. There are no rules that say you can’t use use coins or look up anagrams online. If someone wants to put in that amount of time and effort then so what? Anyway can choose to do likewise. I have nearly 40,000 coins (won not bought) so can tank through difficult words if I need to in a tournament. Not that I’m able to participate often as I ran out of games long ago and have to wait for the addition of more - and the three sections added at a time last for only two tournaments.
But remember - it’s just a free online word game, people!
Folks have been asking me if I buy hints or use the Internet to look up anagrams. Anyone who has played against me knows I don’t because I am too slow, for one thing. But I do play steadily and I stick with it. I started out using this game to overcome brain injury and it works!
I see there is still a rumor out there that there is an app that lets you choose your score without actually playing. That is hogwash and anyone who knows anything about writing code knows it.
The longer you play (and the more often you run out of levels and HAVE to start over) the easier it is. I’m not going to stop playing because of this, I really enjoy this game!
Play it for your own reasons and don’t let anybody try to tell you how you want to play. And if you hate it so much, stop playing 🤷♀️

Cheating isn't much fun and it isn't really winning either. Having said that there is a website with all the answers for free. If interested, the site is https://www.wordscapescheat.com. This form of cheating is like a puzzle book with the answers but it’s not fair to players who are not cheating. For me, I'd rather solve the puzzle on my own to improve my skills and vocabulary. Buying coins, bees, rockets, etc. isn't cheating as it is within the rules of the game. However, it’s not really cost effective if you want to win or place in the top 10 to win coins for future use. There are also apps that will give you a list of words based on the letters in the puzzle which is just another way to cheat. I also see that some hackers wrote an app to change their coin totals which would explain how they rise rapidly as some have complained. Tell me cheaters, where is the fun or challenge in cheating?
Another way people might be gaming the system is to delete the app and then re-install it. That would reset the level to 1 and the lower levels are much easier and thus quicker to solve and easier to get coins. Wordscapes should discourage this behavior by having the higher levels earn more coins per word than the lower levels.
For me, I will continue to play at my own pace for entertainment only – not competition. Finally, please remember this is a free app which is clearly very popular and fun, so just enjoy it and don’t get worked up over the cheating. Enjoy!!
