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

I have to say I am still quite shocked that cheating has apparently been so easy to do in FoG2 MP games. I was sure redownloading even twice would rise the yellow banner already. But nope, no such thing. For all that I know even that 99 redownloads might not have risen any suspicions if there hadn'...

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

We're currently collecting data on all games to find out what "normal" behaviour is to be able to set the thresholds that will prevent cheating. This particular incident would have been averted if more time had been spent reviewing it but the system was designed years ago and has not really been re...

Re: First Tournament

I'm having difficulty logging in, too.

I was able to log in to play the first turn of each of the two battles, although I needed multiple attempts each time to do so, but since then, I haven't been able to login at all.

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

The insane amount of spotted reloads suggests, that you not gonna get the desirable outcome that easily, it can turn for the worse as well, reloading once-twice can be considered as abusing the flaw 'on paper' but pretty useless in reality. I had in my experience at least once such a story with, wh...

Someone from tech solution hopefully should see this thread.
There's a test tournament just started, the login issues may be connected to this. Just guessing, though.
Thanks, Erik.

About every 3rd logins results in an error here as well.
Is there likely to be a solution, Erik? It isn't 1 in 3 for me, I haven't been able to login at all today, and I can only imagine my opponenet is getting impatient.

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

If a player is willing to reload games 99 and 225 times is it not self-evident that it doesn't matter how many times it takes he/she will cheat? The motivation to cheat is there... for me, it is completely immaterial how many times it takes to cheat. Yes, this was a certain kind of person but once ...

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

No, with the greatest respect I think you are trying to promote your own agenda. Yes, keep creating threads about RNG and probability but don't connect it directly to cheating. Martin is absolutely right. Not only does the probability of an event occurring influence our ability to detect cheating, ...

I have just started to play in the new automated torunament and I am having trouble logging in. Although I have succcessfully logges in a few times (2 or 3?) the majority of attempts are met with an erroro message (attached below), telling me that my login attempt has timed out. I haven't sufferent ...

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

The argument proposed by Cairn and whoever else seems nonsensical to me. I really don't know how it can be connected to cheating. Take warbands.. let's say they are easy to break but they don't break. The cheater just tries again and eventually gets his reward. Let's say that warbands are actually ...

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

The thing I worry about with reporting all download/upload issues is that they do happen in genuine fair play. Sometimes the server glitches. Sometimes your machine glitches. I've had it happen to me on numerous occasions over the years. I worry that showing these values could create false suspicio...

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

I fear we risk throwing the baby out with the bathwater. If there's an automated system for banning players, without human intervention and without an opportunity for a player to provde a defence, I am worried about how many innocent players might be penalised as a result. The consquence of this is ...
