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 cheating.

  2. Using multiple accounts in the same game to gain an advantage is cheating.

  3. Playing with someone you know and working together to gain advantage is cheating.  

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, play as if they were an enemy, not an ally.

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 hacking, they will be banned.

  • If the player has been colluding (offences 2 or 3), first their rank will be reset.

  • If the player continues to collude after a first offence, they may be banned on a second offence depending on the circumstances.


Q: How do I report a player?

A: Create  a support ticket at with the names of the players you think are cheating. Attach accompanying screenshots showing: player/s, evidence of cheating. No more than 3 screenshots please.

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 .

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. You can play with your friend as much as you want, but if you don't try beat them as hard as any stranger and random opponent, there will be consequences. If you just want to play for the fun of it with your friends, start a "Play with Friends" game against AI opponents.

Naming and shaming in forums is usually frowned upon. Info on cheaters should be sent to support.
No freaking kidding. I love your game but as of late it has been frustrating. Something just has not seemed right in play. It is baffling someone would put so much effort in a "rank" to create multiple accounts etc. I will be more observant but, are there common names to watch for? What is best way to weed them out. Maybe again a ladder or random play option I read some comment about. I truly hope it gets resolved as I love the play
Good concept. Just played a very questionable ticket is VERY cumbersome...maybe have an in game report questionable play...then all data can be screen shorted and sent instantly. Really getting discouraging....guess I'll just go back to playing AI. Cheaters ruin shi@
The actual playing against humans really sucks, recently. I quit playing for a while because of it. Started again, it is worse. Ready to delete forever. It is just no fun at all when you can obvious watch 2-3 people (characters, because I think they sitting beside each other, or it is the same person playing multiple players) cheat and hold up to 50 troops with one color, while chipping away at everyone else with another color until they are dominant on the board. Love the game, really hate playing your version, because you seem to either not be able to do anything about cheating, or you do not CARE to do anything, because your company makes the same money, either way. End of the day, step up and do something, or it looks like you going to start losing a lot of players, from reading the MANY Posts just like mine. If you cheat, you suck. You cannot feel good about yourself for winning this way, unless you are just an absolute loser and have no other life than an iPad. Hahahahahaha

Agree 100% the cheating makes this game miserable to play and impossible to enjoy. 

I’m a 52 year veteran of this great game. Started with the original board, there is no need to rank someone as beginner, novice, master, grandmaster, etc. It just encourages cheating. I never play anything above expert. I start my own game and when a master or grandmaster shows up I kick them out. Usually two to three others leave immediately afterward. What does that tell you? I play to have fun not ranking, not after 52 years. Can’t have fun with cheaters. If enough folks do the aftermentioned, they’ll get it.
