Possible multi-accounting?

Postby Kandaon » 28 Dec 2017, 04:24

I suspect Canoehead and WesternEradicator to be controlled by the same person or persons communicating outside games.
Relevant ranked games are: 138655 "Diplodocus" (just getting going), 138080 "The Edge in your HEart", 134559 "Diplo" and 136032 "Historical".
There are norank games which I believe to be relevant, but based on my understanding of the reporting guidelines, these are not taken into consideration.

1. According to the Stats - Players page, WesternEradicator has finished 11 games, according to the Archived Games - Search function, 7 of these have included Canoehead. This seems high.
2. a) In games 138080 and 134559, their two controlled powers cede SCs to one another to help the one which is experiencing most resistance at that time, coupled with b) aggressive initial moves away from each other (no hedging, no changes of mind), and c) opportunities for stabs blithely ignored
3. Very limited communication so far in the game I am sharing with him / her / them (I hope!): 138655 "Diplodocus"
4. Not evidence, but frustrating when coupled with the above: very high surrender rates.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all mods / admins for the time they dedicate to this quite brilliant site!
