Suspicious Activity

game #178139

England and France played all game talking almost exclusively to each other and surrendered within 1 minute of each other. Upon their identities being revealed at surrendered it was investigated to show they have played together in every one of their last 8 games all of which were anonymous ranked games and none of which do they appear to have ever had any conflict. France has only ever played 8 games so she has only ever played with the England player. Two of these previous games they shared a 2wd together.

To refer to this as "suspicious" is underselling it quite a bit.

Please unrank this (and probably should the previous 8 games as well).

Certainly seems highly unlikely to be able to do that and NOT be in cahoots. However, a Mod will be along shortly and investigate. Interesting that this post is visible as I thought these were hidden by default until a Mod had a look.

I’ll take a look.
Got a bit of a backlog due to some IRL things keeping me busy. But I will get around to it soon.
Believe me when I say that the tools we have are very sophisticated and cheats will be dealt with whether in normal games or gunboats. In this case - I haven’t looked at it yet so will lock the thread for now.
