Fair Play Rules

Fair Play Rules

To clear up any confusion in the community on what constitutes cheating we have the following Fair Play Rules.

  1. Hacking the game, in any way, is (considered) cheating.

  2. Using multiple accounts in the same game (to gain an advantage over other players) is (considered) cheating.

  3. Playing with someone you know in Global Domination is cheating.

  4. Abusing a bug or glitch or knowingly encouraging abuse of these is cheating.

  5. Creating a negative experience for other players, by actions such as spamming excessively, refusing to end games, intentionally disrupting gameplay, delaying gameplay (stalling), or abusing our reconnection system intentionally, is cheating.

  6. Don't play with anyone you know or have external communication with in Global Domination. Use Play Friends or risk a ban!

 


If you wish to play with people you know please use the Play with Friends mode. If you still wish to play with friends against real opponents, this must still be done via Play Friends. Please use the RISK Community's #looking_for_game feature at https://discord.gg/risk 

 

What happens when a player is reported for any of the above?

The following action will be taken if they are found to have broken these rules; 

  • If the player was (found) hacking, they will be banned from RISK entirely.

  • Although we try to warn new players who might not be aware of the rules, such a warning is not guaranteed. You might be banned by automatic or semiautomatic systems before receiving such warning.

  • Should a player be banned - Their leaderboard position and rank points are completely removed. All games they have participated in for the current season, will have game results re-ordered so that they are placed last. All of their opponents will see this minor bonus.

 

FAQ

Q: How do I report a player?

A: Report in-app by clicking on their avatar and clicking on the red triangle icon under their name in the Alliance Window. If you come across any suspected hacking - Create a support ticket at http://smgstudio.freshdesk.com/support/tickets/new with the names of the players.

 

Q: Why can't I team up with my friends in Global Domination?

A: We take a "act as you would like to be acted towards" approach here. It is unfair to team up against unsuspecting player who believe they are entering a fair “free for all” game. The ranking system is designed for “free for all” gameplay, not teams.

 

Q: Will you be adding a team mode in the future?

A: Yes it’s our goal to release a team mode that allows you to play with friends or random allies against another team. No ETA on this currently, but you can find information here http://smgstudio.freshdesk.com/support/discussions/topics/11000009600 .

 

Q: Will more be done to prevent cheating?

A: Yes, we are currently rolling out a full suite of anti cheating features. Some have already been implemented and it’s logging play now. 


Q: What is the difference between forming alliances with stranger and forming one with friends? 

A: There is a difference between: the informal, temporary alliances forged and broken throughout the game (which, with all its betrayal, is an integral part of RISK) and starting a game with a friend or relative as well as strangers in there. This is intentional ganking and will not be tolerated. If you just want to play for the fun of it with your friends, start a "Play with Friends" game against AI opponents.

I say bring them on whether they cheat or not it's all where you are set up and how the cards fall..... but I would like the option to put a check by there name so I can either choose to play and use the knowledge that they are known cheetahs against them or not play them at all..... I personally enjoy beating them it is hard but it is only a game .... and if the situation of armies at the beginning is right and the cards fall in your way... it is a sweet victory knowing you just beat a couple people with flags next to their name
I understand that playing with allies off is cheating but I play with allies on..... and always am weary of my allies and will crush them when the time comes without a second thought like it should be.... not like playing somebody that is cheating and they know they are not going to attack each other so they're not worried about borders

Wow you really got suspended for taking a long time on a I turn? I assumed stalling was when you can easily win a game and you keep delaying eminent victory. I hate that because normally I surrender but sometimes I want to see what somebody skill level is and some of these jackasses keep accumulating armies and won’t win the game. I assume it’s a kid because I can’t see why somebody would just waste their time
It’s funny I reported cheating players and I got suspended for 24 hours
why am i banned
explain to me which policy i violated.....
This is ridiculous, I have never cheated or violated your policy. I want you to remove this block immediately.

We can only assist with account issues or ban appeals via support ticket at: https://bit.ly/smgticket Regards, Luci@SMG


 But make sure to post your complaints here first; they really make my day.

Wow I fall asleep during a couple of games and get banned!! Wow what cry baby pussies you all are
Wow Caprice, wow! Maybe you should only play when you’re a little less tired?
I'm always tired I have narcolepsy
You have to be able to play with friends properly. So just blocking friends from playing with you in global domination simply makes the game unworkable. If you have a problem with the social relationships between players, your setup is wrong... not the social relationships. A social game is meant to be social
And then there is the problem of purchases disappearing. when I buy something I own it. Either you give a refund or it’s simply theft.
