The B.O.T.S. Union is pretty upset about this one folks. Clans with a daily tax of over 2^31 kudos (a little over 2.1 billion kudos...or 2,147,483,648 to be precise) have mistakenly not been having their taxes collected. This bug has now been corrected, so if you're in an affected clan, start paying up!

Also, :hattip: to the anonymous reporter of this bug. It's been a problem for awhile, but it works to the advantage of players in big clans, so there was an incentive to not report it. This is a good opportunity to remind everyone of my reward policy for certain bugs, which I hope can incentivize the reporting of these kinds of issues sooner in the future.

To that end, I've rewarded the anonymous reporter with 3 stars. Enjoy!

Didn't I say something about Escapism having 70 members or more and having 0 days of taxes etc. and never having to pay? Is this the same as that?

Mind you I don't see why we're even paying in the billions of kudos to begin with. This entire 20 member idea with extra members gaining energy and tournament wins and having bugs because of it is silly. I'd rather have a 20 member limit with "inactive" members that can't win tournaments, add kudos to the treasury or score for the clan. But it's not like anyone wants this game to be competitive, so whatever.

Nah Zal, thats when a clan accepts members one day and removes them the same day, taxes are taken at 0:00:00 server time, so the mega-tax is never taken as they're back down to a reasonable level of members then. The normal tax is taken (or at least it is now, thanks to this fix).

Star reward is cool for bug reporters, kudos.

Yeah, the "put 8 million bots into the clan for just the day of the tournament" loophole is a separate issue. And for the record, I do intend to address that as well.

MARSILO, hope to see you at BOTSCON 2017!
