Anonymous, gunboat game w/ flawless cooperation

Postby EagleAct » 24 Apr 2020, 15:18

171615. Cats have Covid

This is an anonymous, gunboat game featuring, from the beginning, flawless trusting cooperation and unprotected borders between Germany and France. This includes supporting each other's units to hold and to move:

Fall 1902
German F Bel supports French F Bre -> Eng

Spring 1903
German F Bel supports French F Eng

Please look into any connection between these two anonymous players, if you can.

Thanks for the report.
Unfortunately there was cheating here. I have suspended the players, and unranked this game.

I appreciate the investigation. It's very reassuring to know that there is recourse in these situations.

Thankyou for the post in the first place! Always great to have the community help us out.
In this case the AI had actually spotted the cheating also - and it was on my to-do list.

I believe there has been rampant cheating in gunboat games. I know you guys are very busy (appreciate what you do), but if you ever have spare time to spot check. I have seen what has been reported here in other games.

Thanks for helping out here.

The AI is very reliable and we jump on the cheats quickly. I wouldn’t describe the current state of rules abuse on the site as ‘rampant’ at all - it’s actually fairly light.
If you’d like to share more specific examples - please feel free to PM me.
