thankyou nicky,

you keep on saying must post in each game but for holidays or time away if something comes up can we not just post it in the challenge threads, when competitions are running full throttle some players can be in up to 10 - 15 games and would be easier if you could just post there with the players return date and who is sitting for him.

Some players never look @ forums and would never know the turns are being sat. Copy and paste isn't THAT hard

Yeah, but for long term absences, the people who actually need to know, i.e. the war organizers, would know. I would think that would suffice. But I can see how this would make it a little harder for the clan mods running their random checks, because they would have to check games AND any current war forum. That could be a pain for them.

If I was sitting for someone, I would think it would be easier just to post in chat. So, I would do that and don't really care whether I could post in the thread instead.

Why is trying to prevent abuse which has been proven to have happened in the past considered a witch hunt? Witch hunts are considered overreactive because witches as portrayed historically don't exist but rule benders do exist. I don't think anyone is actually arguing that someone be banned for a minor infraction unless it's habitual/intentional.


I was saying I'm glad this IS NOT looking like a witch hunt. It could be one if they put in a bunch of strict rules that caught the innocent as well as the guilty. That's pretty much the definition of a witch hunt. But it looks like they're very much trying to avoid punishing innocent behavior.

Yeah tbh, I wasn't referring to your post but I can see how it must have looked that way lol. That's a boo-boo on my part. Your use of the term just reminded me.
Earlier in this thread it was implied that these new rules were a complete overreaction and more or less stirring up a "witch hunt". Ya know, farmers with pitchforks and all that jazz.

Yes this is fine. Something like. eddie2 taking turns for player A. He is away for the week., the player A posts when he is back. Totally acceptable and a good idea for everyone.

Where are the old rules that say you cant cover someones turn if they have 4 hrs left on their turn and they messaged u earlier in the day that if the turn gets under 4 hours to take the turn and follow any team instructions in chat? Thanks for the link. U can post it on my wall too if you feel like it.

I am having a hard time following your argument here. Surely these sitters in different time zones would not have caught your missed turns as it is, before the rules were even implemented. Or are you saying you should have blanket permission for someone to take your turn 8 hours before it expired for example, how do justify they would have known you were not going to make it ?

8 A.M. my time(11 P.M. for my sitter), I have clan games coming in in 3 and 5 hours, out of a sudden i don't have internet connection and I'm getting info that I wont have in the next 8 hours. Currently I was able to send SMS to my clanmates and they could have supervised me... with new set of rules this will be illegal unless they are awake all night!

perhaps all account sitting should be banned. no exceptions. you take your turn or it is missed.


+1

The simplest way to solve the problem imo

Yes it will be unpopular, so what? In the short term the site loses a few members (a decent chunk of which will be members who are fairly loose about following the rules anyway - aka CHEATS). In the long term there is no controversy, no big arguments, and the players that are left that are willing to play by the rules can play based on honest individual merit.

So if you guys are sick you don't go to job, no one from your colleagues is replacing you? I think that you should turn ON your brains from time to time.

No, you are allowed to text someone and have them cover for you. That was one of my questions and it seems like that then falls under the normal sitting rules of being able to cover you until you come back. It's my understanding that the sitter doesn't have to wait for each turn to get under an hour. I'm sure someone can quote one of the mods on this.

One very specific question: Is it CD team job to propose sitting rules? according to me NO.
Whose Job is then? The Cds consulted with a group of members from across the clan world, involving clans from every level. The Cd team consulted with Admin and multi hunters who ultimately signed off on these rules.

How will you enforce these new rules... you will ask C&A team to check games and compare times?
How will you enforce these rules to a sitter that is not part of any clan(he doesn't event care what is happening in clan world)? So new clan rules wont apply for that sitter, or you plan to punish the sitting player for something he didn't do?

P.S. Since I do not agree with these new rules(unless they are changed) I don't have any plans to follow them. I will ask my sitter to not write down in game chat when I was supervised and I will let CD team to figure out when(and if) I was supervised(I don't plan to ask someone to stay awake for a single minute not all night). Feel free to catch me and punish me according to the offense I will make.


They just said you're responsible for your sitter's actions. So either tell anyone who watches your games not to take turns until they're down to an hour unless you've told them you needed to be sat. In either case (whether advance notice or not) let your sitter know to post in chat that they did the turn.

Which brings me to ... I do hope there is a grace period for the announcement. If someone sat my account and forgot to post, a lot of times I will post when I get back that so-and-so took the last two turns. Also, sometimes people accidentally post their announcement into team chat and a teammate who notices it relays the message into public chat. I think all this falls under the common sense aspect, but I just want to make sure.

They said that they are looking for patterns. It doesn't sound like they are going to be CSI'ing every sat turn or anything.

Goran, agent is right here.

These rules are more restrictive for everyone, but they are not out of our normal scope. The only great restriction that we previously did not have is the one hour rule for emergencies. That is completely manageable. These rules will do more to protect the integrity of our wars than any damage they will inflict. I promise you that.

Rule 2.

Emergency sitting can only be done 1 hour prio missing the turn.

I myself find myself in the clan VDLL, where I like it have good friends and loads of fun. This clan fundemantal basis is talking Dutch, wich pretty much means only having Dutch and Belgium people. Wich we currently only have. This means my turns wich end between 00:00 and 7:00 GMT+1. Cannot nearly be covered. How would you guys fair with this. Or do I have to try to friend an american friend who can sit for me? I really think this can hurt our clan in taking turns during Clan Wars.

it would seem to me that there really only needs to be one rule. all absences must be stated in game chat and any deviance from establish CC rules for Clan play must be agreed upon by all clans involved in the game. otherwise normal CC rules apply which already includes play your own games.

why make this complicated? besides the cheaters will just use different IPs to log in from. Home IP -- mobile hot spot, neighbors open wireless. It comes down to trust. the IP sweep will just snare people in the same apartment or house or building that play fairly.

First of all, you cant promise this at all. Second the only way this holds somewhat true is if people just dont follow the rules and cover a teammates turn when there are 3 hrs left and they have to go to bed, or go to work, or whatever other thing they have that is more important then waiting near the computer for 2hrs and 01 minutes until they can comply with a silly rule.

Basically the rules will please 10% of people who are actually making a big deal of this enforcing it on everyone instead of just those abusing coverings, it will mostly annoy 40% of players who actually abide by it, 49% of players probably will care less play like normal and cover turns on such rare occasions that they will never get caught for braking the rule since they aren't doing it maliciously or frequently, and the 1% or less who have been braking the rules all of the time will either find a way around it or possibly get caught and maybe just make a new account or something (and yes I pulled all these numbers out of my ass but I am guessing they are probably close to accurate).

This whole system reminds me of the DRM protection of music, or how all the software companies protect the hell out of their software only to piss off regular consumers who pay for the software meanwhile hackers just hack it anyways and bypass the security then hand it out for free to anyone who looks for it.

play your own turns and if you miss one, you get deferred troops. that is what they are there for.

Yes, it would be simple, but it isn't going to happen as only the tiny minority are looking for this rule.

Let's be constructive and help the CD's with improving the rule instead of rehashing the same argument over and over again.

merely pointing out the simplist thing.

a compromise would be to allow others to take your turn if the clock drops below 1 hour remaining and it isn't a regular thing to allow others to take it for you.

Cmon, you guys, why? I realize you are in the habit of having this ability but I'm still fuzzy about what would be the huge downside? The argument is that it would be the most fair option, which hasn't been contested. The counter has just been: " I wouldn't like it". I mean, wth?

This discussion is looking like most people being in favor of convenience over fairness. Is this the code of the site? Basically I'm hearing a lot of "It doesn't affect me or my clan so why should I care?" and "It's only a small percentage, thus an exaggeration (logic?).". Instead of considering making a small sacrifice like always taking our own turns (most of us do this 99% of the time already right?), everyone looks to be more considering how bothersome that will be. Is it something to do with points? Clan standing? I'm asking honestly here.
Let's just imagine that account sitting were disallowed for a minute. It's already been soundly argued that ultimately there would be no more chance of one clan missing than another and therefore this factor would just come out in the wash. If your clan loses one war over an awol player, is this really going to be a reflection of the prowess of your clan as a whole? No. The only other possible fear is that while some people would miss turns by obeying the rules, others would not due to them account sitting anyway by tricks like changing IP's, etc. Why couldn't you just make people use the same IP's when they turn? Or one of 2? I'm pretty sure this is a possibility but let me guess, this is too inconvenient?
I fell like CC has a history of being pretty intolerant of cheating, both by the administration and by the community. Why change this course for the sake of convenience? Some people found loopholes, fine, cut the loopholes. For those who don't like the spirit of fairness at the cost of slight inconvenience, from what I hear there are other options for playing online Risk-like games.

I don't particularly care about a rare missed turn, but I do care that a rare missed turn can affect the outcomes for others, I do care that these "official clan sitting rules" are going beyond beyond for "everyone" when the site itself has allowed the occasional sitter and a few rare idiots abused "sitting".

This is a huge restriction, it's NOT 'completely manageable' and it's ridiculous for a casual gaming site to have rules about presence that are far more restrictive than most companies that pay people to be there when they say they will.

My opinion is, well i agree this is not going to look anygood without account sitting.


Reason i am writing is, responding to you jj, this site has got nothing to do with what minority or majority asking.
There have always been a 1v1 team play suggestion, for more than 3 years to now, among many names, couple of times at different times similar looking suggestions had been made, among them maybe the most brilliant work came from ahunda, he made a 3-4 day study, he made a poll, and honestly % 90 of ppl clapped, said hats off, said amazing idea, said they are full of behind of the idea, they loved the idea and so...At the end ? Nothing...So, jj, i want to believe in your words, but facts have got nothing to do with if a thing accepted by minority or majority, i dont think it is a matter.


HERE IS WHAT AHUNDA SUGGESTED 3 YEARS AGO, still nothing has done over such a cute and promising idea.

Interesting idea.

I liked, particularly, this point:
"Repeated counter-arguments here were: The potential of abuse by a few should not be reason enough to reject a game option, that could be enjoyed by many" mainly because this is pretty much the same counter-arguments going on here.

Here's these "official clan sitting rules" that are announced, overkill that will affect many because of the abuse by a few.

Shows an interesting CC management trend, does it not? Punish everyone because a few people abused things, rather than punish the abusers for abusing things and leaving it as it was.
