Re: iPad iOS 14 BUG FIX

It looks like a recent iOS update has broken Armageddon so we've taken the sad decision to remove it from sale on the app store to avoid customers buying and not being able to play. We're very sad about this and disappointed Apple has done it again and can understand your frustration. Please contact...

Uzbek this is a warning. That post is unacceptable. I have deleted it and you must not make political posts.

Re: Battle Academy II - PBEM server maintenance notice (Wednesday November 11)

The service provider has fixed the server hardware/OS so we now need to check if there is any lasting issues we need to resolve. If anyone is having issues going forwards please let us know.

Re: Battle Academy II - PBEM server maintenance notice (Wednesday November 11)

Our web servers were running very slowly and our service provider rerouted the traffic to an additional server while they fixed the problem. Re routing the traffic caused a host of issues so we've made them switch it back but they haven't yet fixed what was slowing us down so now we hope we;re back ...

Re: FOG2DL given clean bill of health by Slitherine review . . .

At the moment we are monitoring things carefully but the system has not changed. We're in the process of merging PBEM1, 2 and 3 together which is a necessary step before we can change the anti cheat systems. The current monitoring and any new system apply to all games.

Re: Opponent absent-Order of Battle Tournament2

As long as you've taken your turns and its waiting for you opponent to move then the issue is on them. If they don't move at all they'll be kicked from the tournament and you'll be awarded a win and BYE score. If they get past the minimum turn count they'll get a score penalty and you'll get a bonus...

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

We will make an announcement once everything is finalised but it will be about general systems and not details. Partly as these could help people to game the system and partly as they are going to be subject to change without notice. The issue is as we're reviewing different games there are differen...

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

There will be warnings before a sanction. I'm not willing to discuss the details of this as it could be used to try and manipulate things. The aim is to find a balance between preventing cheating and false positives. We agree it was too far one way, we just want to be careful we don't go too far the...

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

I should have been clear. Any proven cheating is an immediate permanent ban. Any system of cheat detection will have false positives and no way to be sure if someone is cheating or not. The temporary bans of increasingly length are to remove people with behaviour that matches cheating, but could be ...

I haven't had time to read all the messages in this thread but an update on where we are. The review identified a number of users whose activity was suspect. We found that of the 5 of them. The thing that surprised us, was when we looked in to banning them, 4 had already been banned, one of which wa...

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

Unfortunately that would be an utterly enormous task and would not be a good user experience as it would have to upload the turn after every player action. It also probably wouldn't give any additional protection as at best it would just make the cheating more time consuming as you'd have to go comb...

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

Mike, that's exactly the problem. We have a zero tolerance for cheating and anyone we know is doing it would be banned. Determining whether someone is cheating beyond a reasonable level of doubt is the issue. Having a trial by public opinion is also not something that sounds like a good plan. An unp...

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 rev...
