Someone just made me aware this post existed and I would like to give my perspective, for what it's worth.
True, I played many games with potty1969 and I know that person.
But I dont feel I ever cheated.
And I must have won most of those games I played with him (the ones I lost was probably when I was playing team with him).
He is not a very good player and his rank/record attest to that.
Of course that fact impacts my play, that kind of fact impacts my play in any game. (ie: a 900 player with over 100 games played has to be somewhat lame).
In the game being reported Andwyn was the player worth attention so of course I personnally focused on him.
What could have changed that was if one of the other two players had become a threat but that did not happen that I can remember.
I honestly think I would have played the same game if I had not known potty1969.
I have somewhat mixed feelings about all this.
I understand completely the need to figure out if people are cheating.
On the other hand it is just too bad that we cant play with friends outside of team games or games that only include friends that all know each other.
I guess overall if I had to choose I would choose to make sure there are no cheaters.
So I have decided to not play games with people I know except for team games and games where everyone knows everyone from now on.
The grey area is what if I end up playing with someone I played a few games with (and maybe even on teams) and get along with but I dont really know... hopefully that's still ok, but could be grey.
Maybe, just maybe, there should be some rules/guidance somewhere on CC regarding this type of thing... or maybe I just never saw it?
