Tonight it has come to the attention of the #pottermorefamily that there are people out there on pottermore who have nothing else better to do with their time than to cheat on a massive scale by losing House points on purpose. Thanks to this blog: http://burnbook777.tumblr.com/ we have a pretty good idea how they operate. They have multiple accounts (which is against Pottermore’s terms and conditions for betas) and open different tabs or browsers to make as many potions as possible and fail on purpose (losing 5 points each time). With that you can add the so called ‘time-turner’ cheat of potion brewing , by moving your pc clock ahead by 70 minutes, you don’t have to wait the full 80 real time minutes, before making another one!
The cheats are not only Slytherins but they are indeed in EVERY house! Just this afternoon we were wondering in Hufflepuff common room how on earth did we manage to lose over 600 points so quickly. I think with this blog we have our answer! Potion failing on purpose! I know we’re not the most popular house, but look at Gryffindor? How on earth did Ravenclaw overtake them by such a margin?!
I emailed Pottermore and added these screenshots (though with full facebook names!) to them in hope that you cheats out there will get banned! It’s not fair to the thousands who are playing the game fairly!
