The accused are suspected of: Account Sitting Abuse
Game number(s): Numerous, see comments.
Comments: Over the course of several months, josko.ri has been taking turns for numerous players that he is teamed up with when those players are not away from the site and perfectly capable of taking their own turns. These players have admitted to allowing josko to take turns for them because they have not been told what to do yet. Josko takes these turns while the other players are making moves in other games, making forum posts, and joining other games. Josko does not take turns in other games at the same time giving more credence to the argument that the players are not actually incapable of making their turns; these players choose to not play their turns, expecting Josko to do so for them. This has happened in numerous clan challenges and tournaments, spoiling the competitive nature and integrity of both.
The rules of the site spell out what is classified as Account Sitting Abuse:
Account sitting abuse
What is it
If the Account Sitter has a stake in these non-tournament/non-clan challenge games (as an opponent or teammate), and plays multiple games from start to finish using the Account for which they are Sitting as a communal account strategically play turns, knowing that Account Sitter will not be back to take any of these turns.
A user or group of users who loosely share their accounts among one another to improve their score and gaming by means of strategically allowing others to take their turns for them at specific times, or allowing well versed and ranked users to essentially play select games on their account for them to boost their score and rank.
The last paragraph above clearly spells out the main violation that Josko and various members of KORT are breaking over, and over, and over again.
Please note that all of the examples below are games in which players have chosen to not play their own turns and allowed Josko to do so for them instead. I have excluded games (dozens, if not hundreds) that it looks like legitimate account sitting is taking place (ie: when a player was on vacation/out of town).
These examples are only from the KORT challenges with G1 and THOTA, plus Lindax's TLO Tournament however other clans (Mainly TOFU) that have faced off against KORT have complained about Josko's account sitting abuse so games likely exist there as well in addition to other possible tournament violations.

One turn was taken for Moonchild at 16:25 with 1 hour left on the timer in Game 8055675. However, Moonchild is fully active in a 1v1 game on December 4th and was able to take turns and make comments there even though Josko covered a turn for him elsewhere: Game 8062285
December 5th, 2010
One turn was taken for Moonchild at 6:53 with 1 hour left on the timer in Game 8055846. However, Moonchild can be found taking a few turns in a 1v1 game (and commenting multiple times in game chat) up to one hour before his turn would have expired on the turn Josko took for him, proving Moonchild was fully capable of covering his own turn: Game 8062285
January 21st, 2011
One turn was taken for Moonchild at 17:28 with 5 hours left on the timer in Game 8263174.

However in other games, Rodion takes a many turns for himself on 1/28 a few hours before (many within 1 hour), for some reason allowing Josko to cover for him only in the above game: Game 8333260, Game 8331968, Game 8334625, Game 8350201, Game 8360064, Game 8360133, Game 8363351, Game 8363810, Game 8365083, Game 8390001, Game 8390005

April 19th, 2011
One turn was taken for Rodion at 14:55 with 5 minutes left on the timer in Game 8804906. Rodion is active in the forums playing a mafia game with multiple posts for an hour from 7:02 to 8:06 and returns to the forums at 17:06 after work. He chooses to not play this one game and allow josko to take the turn for him.
May 2nd, 2011
One turn was taken for Rodion at 16:03 with 1 hour left on the timer in Game 8880866. However, Rodion is active in a tournament thread at 13:40 and a mafia game at 13:42 (3 hours before his turn expires). He again chooses to not play this one game and allow josko to take the turn for him.
May 5th, 2011
Two turns are taken for Moonchild in Game 8928842 and Game 8957634. These turns are taken within 15 minutes of each other. The first turn is taken at 13:50 yet the turn is not set to expire for another 9 hours, the second turn is taken at 14:05 with just a minute left on the game timer.
However, Moonchild is not in need of a sitter on this day. In Game 9008785 Moonchild takes a turn for himself at 12:50, an hour before josko takes his turns. In Game 8977080, Game 8977081, Game 8977082, Game 8977083, Game 8977085, Game 8977086, Game 8977087, Game 8977088, Game 8977089 Moonchild takes his own turns around 11:16 just under 3 hours before josko takes his turns. Finally, Moonchild takes 5 turns over the course of 22 hours all on May 5th in each of the following games, proving he was not away and was fully capable of taking his own turns on that day: Game 9008785, Game 9008786, Game 9008787.
May 7th, 2011
One turn was taken for Rodion at 2:29 with 6 hours left on the timer in Game 8957634. It is accepted that Rodion is sleeping at this time as his last forum post is on 5/6 at 23:29 and next post is on 5/7 at 9:54 and no games (other than the one in which josko takes a turn) are played during this timeframe. However, it is obvious that Rodion is not away for an extended period of time and was capable of taking his own turn.
May 10th, 2011
One turn was taken for Rodion at 7:49 with 30 minutes left on the timer in Game 8957634. Again, it is accepted that Rodion was sleeping as he freely admits that he is "Going to sleep now" in his last forum post on 5/9 at 22:36. Why does he not take the turn before going to bed? It is because josko has not yet told him what he should do on his turn, so Rodion goes to bed with full knowledge that josko will take the turn for him. This is admitted in the game chat:
2011-05-10 12:08:19 - josko.ri: sorry for sitting needed, it seems like Rodion wasnt here on time to take his turn so i had to jump.
2011-05-10 13:34:03 - Rodion: I had 2 plans, so I waited to talk to Josko, but then I had to sleep and he ended up playing for me, sorry
Also on May 10th, one turn was taken for thebest712 at 15:49 with 13 minutes left on the timer in Game 8957647. However, thebest712 takes his own turns in multiple games within 4-5 hours of josko playing for him: Game 8957618, Game 8993698, Game 9027042, Game 9027046, Game 9027647. thebest712 chose to not take his turn and allow josko to do so for him, even though he was actively taking turns a few hours prior in other games.
May 12th, 2011
One turn was taken for Moonchild in Game 9019789 at 19:00 with 3 hours remaining on the turn. However, several 1v1 games were played by Moonchild with multiple turns taken while it was his turn in the game Josko took the turn for him. References: Game 9034997, Game 9034998, Game 9048490, Game 9048619, Game 9048621, Game 9048623, Game 9052043. There was plenty of time for Moonchild to take the turn himself as is evidenced by him playing all day on the 12th for himself, but again chose for Josko to do so for him.
May 22nd, 2011
Josko.ri admits to taking turns for players who have intentionally stalled their turns for him to play. Game 9019805:
2011-05-21 17:21:32 - josko.ri: sometimes people is waiting to make agreement what to play, so it cause stalling some turns, and sometimes real life situations dont allow to come back near computer on time. I sit when I see that person is not online and time is low
