So if most people knew they were friends, how is is "secret" diplomacy?
I did not know they where friend and would of been pretty pissed of if I had played them like this. No matter how much we tighten the rules up or add things like this, players will always find a way around it.

So anyone of my friends on my list who I play with, this will come up. Sure as hell, if either of us win a report will be made. This would lead to a lot more work for the CA team.

So if I play a person (x) times, they go onto my list. I can still remove them so this is not even an idea worth pursuing. Also, why would I want a thousand players on my list. Imagine HAs list with all the tournie people he plays a lot.

And then games would not fill or the friend enters last.
AS stated above, this idea would probably help cheaters as all they would do is remove the name from the friends list every few games. If it does not come up in the log then I would not know (like now). But it would lead me to believe I had been beaten fair and square. Why should I not play friends? The whole reason for playing a friend is because they are a friend.
This whole idea seems very reactionary and has no real benefits.
