i just checked number 1 and number 2 and don’t see anything odd.
anyways, rest assured that our validation team will check everything properly when contest ends (for example 2 weeks ago, we DQ’ed 4 winners for cheating).
thanks for reporting your concerns, the best thing for now is to concentrate over the contest and trade the best way you can. good luck
Due to technical issues with the MT4/MT5 MQL library, the MQL library is not updating rankings. MetaQuotes has released a new software update that is affecting connectivity to servers and we expect them to conclude their software update soon, at which point the rankings will be updated.
New contests will resume when the update has been completed and we will inform everyone through our social media channels, website and email.
i have a suggestion to solve that to change the rules for one person for each Ip address …BUT …this will not solve the problems in some cases because for example in indonisia a lot of people are targeting the demo contest …what some people do they open more than 15-20 to be gainers .of course by cheating …
but… we always check the winners, 1 by 1 when the contest ends.
and if we find winners with multiple accounts, guess what, they will be DQ and no prize.
(a couple of weeks ago we DQ like 4 or 5 winners exactly for that reason)
don’t worry, cheaters are always caught
thanks for your feedback
I trust your judgments …when it comes to cheating .I trust CBF forum for its credibility .That why i feel i have to participate in each competetion …to win or loose …it is my decisions .Iam happy to be IN.
unfortunately, due to technical issues with the MT4/MT5 MQL library, the MQL library is not updating. MetaQuotes has released a new software update that is affecting connectivity to servers and we expect them to conclude their software update soon, at which point we should resume the contests.
this issue is affecting not only the contests, but also the traders that submitted their LIVE and DEMO accounts to our performance tracking tool, it’s a connectivity issue between servers
new contests will resume when the update has been completed and we will inform everyone through our social media channels, forum, website and email.
