Reporting Options

This post is the offical place to discuss options for reporting players in game.

Idea: In game functionality to report players.


Express your ideas, but please keep all player reports to the support tickets.

I've also seen players who cheat to alter th AI so it never attacks them. Part of the strategy for me is hoping to lead AI players to my opponents, but I've been in games where the AI didn't touch a certain player at all. So yes a reporting system absolutely needs to be implemented. The cheaters just make the game no fun for everyone else.

The worst is when its so obvious and there is nothing you can do about it. You must end up giving up.

Extremely sick of people cheating by running 2 accounts. You cannot possibly win 2 against 1. Something must be done to allow honest players to report cheaters when we see them!

Just played against 2 obvious cheaters: Peter justice 2 and smith Schulz 2. Both grandmasters added a couple of bots, and started the game. After one of them took south and North America plus Europe, leaving a huge opening, the other didn't attack them but went after me in Australia. Made absolutely no sense. Unbelievably, some people have no shame.

This may not always be cheating especially when bots are involved. For me when I have an alliance with someone I honor it until I eliminate others or until its obviously players will eliminate them. Of course, I sure there are those who cheat.

User reports can help to combat cheating but maybe something more would be useful. I posted this idea in the 'report players when they're cheating' thread and would like to add it to the discussion here: -----------------------------------What if players faced random record inspections or 'cheat checks'. Cheat checks would consist of basically the same process as the one reported players are already subjected to. However, it would probably work best if it was an automated process. Suspicious accounts could be flagged for human attention. To make it more useful the inspections could target only players who have played recently and or accounts that are high ranking. If this were a public effort it would serve as a significant deterrent to cheating.

They need to add a block player option ( for future games hosted )

Maybe there is a way we can help to regulate cheating ourselves...


1) On the card in the Players screen - add a "Report" button - if someone suspects they are cheating, they hit that button


2) In the Create Game section - highlight any games that have been "Reported"


3) Allow people to go in and spectate these games - and if they also feel that cheating is going on, can confirm it and have that player automatically flagged for inspection by SMG


I'm sure this could work quite well once the user base is large enough - besides, it's quite interesting to watch other people play... so adding a Global Spectate function for everyone would be great anyway!

There needs to be something implemented. Because it seems like every other game someone is cheating with another profile in the game. An example is the from the beginning of the game, say player 2 and player 4 do not attack each other. Ok fine. No big deal, maybe they don't need to. Now we are cycling thru turn 4. It's seems like player 2 is attacking and weakening say everyone in Australia until he has nothing left. Ok fine people go big early in game for hopes of glory. Still no biggie. Now player 4 captures Australia. Ok sweet. Now player 2 captures India and China and defends. Ok maybe he's gonna attack again soon . Nope. Players 2 and 4 exchange cards a few turns in Siam. Now player 2 captures Middle East, Afghanistan, Urals, and Kamchatka. Now he just defends these 4 countries while player 4 takes one or 2 countries at a time in Asia. When p4 is ready p2 now attacks Ukraine Egypt,and Alaska with all he has and player 4 moves in and captures those countries now fully defendable, all offense nearest by are cut down. This is just an example of stupid things I see. I seen this attempted in North America but it failed because the blitz's kept failing and they lost but all the same. This was easiest to explain. I understand some family and stuff play together. But I love the game, despite how easily exploited it is. I grew up on risk. Please fix it somehow so I don't have 1 person take up 2 spots in every few games I play. It's getting old.

So this feature is actually really great but I would like to be notified if my report actually did something. I just recently played a game where I was doing really well and a grand master was in it as well. I started noticing that his troops would double. He would take over a territory and it would clone the amount he just moved back to the place he attacked from. He quickly had 200 troops and was taking over the continents with no contest. I reported him but would really like a confirmation that its being looked into or something because it was really frustrating.

STOP THE CHEATING!!!! It's disgusting, almost 8 out of 10 is cheating game , There must be a way to stop this ! I think the best way is to host random games , where I just chose my preference game setting , press a button and join a game hosted totally random !!! So don't use Normal game where u can join random or by choice , You can online single player

Rick, it's not that they are 'teaming up', it's one person running 2 accounts.

Well, if SMG can't even look after a tiny forum like this... do you think they will bother doing anything about cheaters?!

Yes, just had horrible cheating with riskranger and dogabuser. Blatant cheating. Blatant coordination using fog of war, which was stunning since it makes cheating easier to detect. In the end, the grandmaster won, even though there was no possibility that s/he should have. I reported the users, but likely nothing will happen. Makes me want to quit playing altogether since I became a grandmaster the old fashioned way...I earned it
Can someone please tell me why when you go to join a game of risk the game setter is allowed to remove someone,(Or should I say someone he sees as a threat to his stats),I often see people of the same level joining a game and at the very last second a “senior” player jumps in,or a senior player is starting a game and he is selective over who he wants to play/ beat?
