Imagine that Briand, having twice as many turns, card and troops as your opponent "ruins" the game. Who would have thought? I mean you really needed to cheat to figure that out?
I would never cheat at a contest and never have. Whatever my record is is what I am. I don't have multiple acccounts to keep up a ranking. I don't care about rankings. The high ranked players are mostly cheaters in the first place.
I just want to play a fair game and when guys like you use more than one account it "ruins" the game for everyone.
It's pathetic how much some of you guys care more about rankings than playing a fair game and being honest.
Well there just came a point where I was like, wow it'd be so easy to just use 2 devices so I tried it. But yeah I realized it would make the game boring to play. I actually lost a lot of interest in playing over a year ago because there was no rank filtering. I played about 6 games a day and now it's one game a week. So nice of them to make the game more playable when I hardly care to play anymore.
Rank matters in a sense that when you're up late at night and you're a grandmaster and all you can play against is a bunch of idiot novices and it would be so frustrating with how they'd gain up on you just because you're the GM and everyone else is an idiot. It was like putting a huge target on all of your troops. So on those nights I'd just make a new account for "fun" (to not care about rank) and before I knew it I had another account at the same ranking. So cycle and repeat and there you have it. This essentially comes down to exactly what you're saying with "who cares" except I legit want to play the game in a more fair manor.
Now that there's rank filtering, it's no longer a problem. Just the cheaters. So naturally I'm playing with accounts I care less about. When cheating is finally fixed that'll change but probably will never happen?
Anyway, how is having other accounts ruining the game for you? I am actually only active on one of them. I just have 6 others that I could play. And 1 that I will play with if cheating is finally done away with.
My problem is when players trade in card to get more troops every other turn. How are they doing that. I think it is cheating. They will get troops with two card and then again at four cards and then again at two cards. Whats up with that.
Constantine's suggestion of adding a personal rating for each player has universal merit and benefit, as they will receive their average rating from the majority of players, and the majority of players are who you are interested in satisfying as they keep the game alive and likely generate most income.
If a player perceives someone else is acting unfairly, it might not be true, given a rating system people who are outliers and accuse everyone won't have an impact on ratings. Either that, or all ratings will likely decrease a bit depending on level, and players will judge by relativity, for all masters cannot be cheaters for instance, a master myself that's at least part certainty.
You offer a service, the game, and although it might make some people happy to team up at home for instance, this would be ok in some adventure game but in a game of calculated strategy, it creates dissatisfaction.
I'm posting here today just as I'd come from a game of capitals on Boston where I was being attacked and blockaded by a master who was only getting 5 troops per turn; a master who didn't think to attack the grandmaster taking up the rest of map with 59 troops per turn. Because you can't get to master and be that ignorant, the master therefore was aware they played not in their interest and teamed with the grandmaster.
This is an exceedingly obvious example, especially as the master in question started playing the kind of all-out aggressive Strats common once things get to 1v1 in our 2v1, and similarity had a tendency to throw out troops and protect his (buddy, alt's) borders.
So don't let me convince you; think about it yourself. Are examples of true and blatant exploiting of the game reportable enough that players who do this will be different in personal rating than those who alliance occasionally and are unduly reported?
game is BS these are some of the impossible losses ive had
but it is never in my favour
21 v 14 lost 21 has 11 left over
10 v 4 lost 10 has 4 left over
the dice they use is impossible or there are hacks in the game that they will not banthis is classed as fraud when you buy a game you expect it to be fair but when it is not then its a breach
