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. Quite agree. I think we have to recognise that there will still be some scope for error or uncertainty in whatever new security syst...

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

Why not save every move/combat outcome locally? If you reload the game, it has the moves saved and goes through the turn until the point of crash. Sure, in theory one could hack one's own program to override this, but most players aren't going to have the expertise or the inclination to do this. Th...

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

Human nature suggests that an individual is more likely to attempt an act if it is viewed as easy than if it is viewed as difficult. If making cheating more difficult does not deter cheating, why would so much effort be put into making cheating difficult? Best Wishes Mike In this current situation ...

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 ...

I understand your frustration but any change has to be thought through. This is not a simple thing to resolve without causing as much damage as good so we need to evaluate the options here and make sure we get it right.

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. LOL again! Every single post made here is someone's own agenda or more correctly opinion. You have been warned not to try ...

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 . . .

I agree that changing the element of luck in the game shouldn't influence the discussion. There is maybe grounds to discuss that on its own merits, but it warrants its own thread. I understand from DanZanzibar's comment why it could be deemed off topic. In saying that I believe it is a contributing...

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

No of course not. If there were no possibility of a different outcome then no cheating could occur. But I don’t want the rules of the game or the chances of events to be determined by what makes the game hardest to cheat in the current save/load exploitable format. That should be determined (as it ...

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

If those warbands lose impact combat, it's 42% (-3 CT) that they double drop... so for the evenly matched ones it's about 6% that a) you lose and b) you double drop. Against the superior warband with your general in your unit it's probably about 8%. Now you had 4 opportunities for this to happen 3 ...

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

RNG is fine. There aren’t far too high extreme probabilities. Let’s not conflate issues. Vast majority of players won’t cheat. We have a good community. The road some people are taking now (starting to consider luck as possible cheating) is unhelpful, I think. Warbands drop all the time. I have als...

Re: Larger armies right across the FOG2 Digital League?

Half of the Digital League uses large armies so it is already there. Correction, 9/21=43% of Digital League uses 1600 point armies, 57% uses 1200 point armies. In this poll 56% informed they would want to use larger armies. That is quite a difference, one would like to say the exact opposite. I don...

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

RNG is fine. There aren’t far too high extreme probabilities. Let’s not conflate issues. You sound like you know the exact probabilites. So I will ask you the same question, what are the odds of three consecutive double drops? In two cases the attacks were even and in one case my warband with gener...
