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.

Guys, an account named Dilliard Smiling 33 killed me off before I managed to report him. A assume he was cheating, but since it was fog of war with blizzard cannot be 100%. That is why I need you to take a look. Here are some screenshots I took:
At least confront the player and ask him to explain how did he get so many troops unlike the rest of us early in the game.

Thanks and I am sorry if I interpreted this incorrectly.

I don’t think there’s anyone on this thread who can do anything. I think it’s just players
I think I just played a game against a cheater. Any way to report this? I was playing Capitol Conquest mode. Player in question attacked and won an opponent’s capitol with about the same number of troops, which I thought was rather weird AND had troops left to attack other territories. SAME player then attacked the same capitol 12 vs 13 and STILL had troops left to attack other territories. Finally, attacked another capitol 18 vs 14 in his favor, and once again had troops left over to take over other territories. Never have I seen one player get THAT lucky attacking three capitols...

It’s hard to report after the game. It’s possible tho that this was legit. I’ve lost on attacks 10 vs 12 Especially when higher numbers. But even 5v5.
Luck of the dice. Sometimes you win, sometimes you loose
This game is rigged all the other people are able to turn in their cards but I rarely am able to even if I have four or more cards
I love this I’ve been suspended this is awesome all the things that have happened to me from taking the time I joined for being kicked out of games for whatever and all people in here do is pummel me so whatever …….
