Grats on becoming a Master rank Mike!
Highest rank for me is Export, but then loosing streak back down to beginner. Ranks are rough, but I enjoy the challenge. Been Export twice, trying to get back there.
Cheating, perhaps this is that old philosophy where "I suck, so you must be cheating"
Two players ganging up on you, is not cheating. One players using two accounts is an exploit of the game, but still hardly cheating. GOD MODE is cheating, but I've never seen anyone roll sixes every time, NEVER!
I played a game that was so obviously someone playing with two accounts simoultaneously. Sorry for the misunderstanding, but i am not saying that all masters are cheaters. But I played a game with a guy having a grandmaster rank called "Benedict Poppins 2" and it was so obvious that a second account was not even a friend, but the same person playing to support the grandmaster status of the player. My claim maybe is wrong on how to eliminate cheaters, maybe there are other ways to do it.
I agree Snowy, very childish.
For me, the better I get with how I play my strategy, I'm less affected by players trying to exploit the game and win by an unfair advantage. I have not seen any real actual cheats, but lots of players trying to get an advantage to up their rank. Feels GREAT to beat them at their own game though :)
