Responded to this accusation on the official forum a while back, but just noticed this here so I'll post a rebuttal here as well.
In this instance, one of our players did use the exploit as described, but only after first witnessing an attack notification from an opposing player with no result, followed immediately by another successful attack. Our position is that members are allowed to use the exploit if we see it used against us (might as well play on a level playing field) - but in this case he jumped the gun a bit. We should only be doing it if there is a clear pattern so we know that's what's happening. Duza claimed their player's game crashed, resulting in the one erroneous attack, which is understandable, but some members said they witnessed an exploiting pattern from them in a previous squad war.
Our policy is no using the exploit unless it is used against us first, but most of our members feel it's not even worth it then because of the resource/time/crystal cost of repeatedly rebuilding loadouts. But we'll allow it if we're facing cheating scum. We have faced some ridiculously bad cheaters and it definitely makes it no fun.
