Mobile Strike is a darwinian base builder and combat game promoted by Arnold Schwarzenegger and developed by Machine Zone subsidiary, Epic War, LLC.
The game is overrun by pack loaders and griefers and we cannot recommend any purchases made in application until the developer takes steps to curb the rampant abuse.
One state in particular, state 635 HOCA, is run by an alliance thqat itself exploits the game and other legitimate consumers with a known pack loader selling in game to players in their alliance.
His full customer list is unknown, however the Alliance leader and current Head of State plainly is aware that the “pack loading” is occuring and ignores it.
The game is basically a cash grab. Rather than deal with the fraud and abuse the developer opens new “states” with players drawn into new areas and segregated away from the older states.
As states develop and grow the pack loaders and griefers proliferate and gradually the states are driven to low population and then the developer opens news states.
The developer doesn’t go back and balance combat or deal with the corruption in the old states, that is left to the players.
However the combat is unbalanced by people who purchase from hackers, ie “pack loaders” who sell deeply discounted hacked in game upgrades.
Machine Zone is based on Palo Alto, CA, so we are unsure how long this corruption will last if it comes to the attention of regulators, but for now we recommend no one play nor make purchases in Mobile Strike.
The in game corruption, combined with rampant abuse of players with inadequate safety and privacy safeguards makes this game unsafe at any speed.
We contacted Mobilke Strike via email and received this response:
(Game of War is by same developer and same engine as Mobile Strike. The game has the same issues and this player who made this pack loader video plays both games.)
