    Berkeley cleaned 900 cheaters from the top 10,000 today. The top 1000 and the team pages have been updated, although the final team stats haven't.

    Overclockers UK

    SETI.Germany

    I'll quote part of a post by Rattledagger on Ars Technica:
    Well done chaps!

    When it was announced that they would be cleaning the results i thoguht we might close the gap or even possibly just nip ahead of them, but i never expected them to drop over 1.8millions units!!! :eek:

    I also thought we might lose few, but apparently not. :D

    That's utterly incredible. The mighty troops of Team OcUK have proved what we all knew - that Overclockers UK is the greatest DC team in the history of the planet :D

    Well done all. A terrific job :cool:

    It appears that we only had 1 apparent (according to Berkeley) cheater who got the chop, Scythes and Sickles. Tis a shame that we had any alledged cheaters but oh well.

    I guess you'll always have the odd one in the team... looks like SETI Germany on the other hand were riddled with them, at the top end of their leaderboard as well.

    <controversial theory>
    Classic IIRC was pretty easy to cheat, if you kept submitted WUs for a few days you could submit them again and the server would accept them? With so many doing it within SG, makes you wonder if it was something the odd person decided to do, or some form of team effort to stay in front? 2 million dodgy units isn't something that one guy has cooked up in his bedroom... and they had plenty of time to think of it.
