Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

I was given the following details of the 99 excess re-loads match during the course of the investigation into dkalenda . . . Excess downloads per turn were as follows: Turn 4 (his Turn 2): 2 Turn 6 (his turn 3): 2 Turn 8 (his turn 4): 13 Turn 10 (his turn 5): 11 Turn 12 (his turn 6): 13 Turn 14 (hi...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

Our brains offer us the marvelous power of inference and logical deduction Pete. The best predictor of future action is past action and vice versa. It is unlikely that dkalenda started cheating recently. The power of inference and logical deduction allows us to see that the excessive download count...

Re: First Tournament

On the login issue, we've got a sticking plaster fix to put out when we put out the next patch which should at least reduce the instances of login connection fails. And there's an upgrade to the PBEM systems coming in a month or two that should pretty much eliminate the issue. It's not great, but w...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

As far as I am aware, 'zero tolerance' has never worked in any context, despite its popularity with some sections of society. In this context is would be destructive. In Multiplayer games zero tolerance to cheating is the only way to go. The history of gaming scene is littered with good MP games wh...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

Excellently said MikeC_81. Ian has very carefully avoided to say redownloading is a problem, as long as it happens in moderate amounts, because otherwise there might be "false positives". Which very clearly means Slitherine stance on cheating is "It is OK, just don't go overboard with it". It is si...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

Another disappointing response. Let me reiterate that "normal" behaviour is 0 reloads. ZERO . The threshold you are setting is not for "normal" behaviour. It is the tripwire for the amount of "abnormal" behaviour at which an investigation must be launched. And no one should be afraid of investigati...

Re: First Tournament

My opponent is pretty quick so we're rattling the turns off. I'm just not logging out, so I'm able to stay connected.

I'll have to logout when I shutdown tonight, though, and fingers crossed for tomorrow.

Really appreciate your help with this, Shard.

Theoretically, one simple solution to the cheating problem is to disable reloading of turns.
But what then happens if you suffer a legitimate problem? You can't continue with the game.

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

But this is not the Olympics or violent crime, this is a minor hobby for most players. Anyone that cheats and I guess they are few is really just cheating themselves. At least I know on the odd occasions when I win it was done on merit and I would prefer that to a 100 unmerited victories and suspec...
