No no - if they did this - then CC's database would lie in small broken pieces all over the server room floor.

yeah, but that doesn't resolve the problem we are trying to resolve. that resolves the issue after the games are over, not during game play. you would have to lock them and then make them neutral in the games...-6cd

Agreed - this suggestion is great - the extra suggestion for deleting accounts is bad.

MULTES

Postby Grizbr on Thu Jan 22, 2009 6:56 pm

Multis:
When is this site going to do something about all the Multies. So I report them. I get a sing up that says "Busted" And they are still all in the game. Still all ganging up on me because they are the same person. Now I dot care if they are or are not premium members. It should not make a difference. (I am premium also but that should also not matter). When busted they should be booted forfit all games and if you decide to let them back in it should be after a minimum of 90 days for a first time offence. And permanent if more than one violation. I have talked with many many people who no longer play here because of them. I believe this site is losing 1000's of players because of this issue which they seem to ignors!

If they were no longer allowed to play and must deatbeat their games, it would hurt freemium members.
If they had to resign their games, then people would report everyone who they are about to lose to.

No they would not. These are proven multis. Reported and determined to be multi by admin. Yet they are still playing they are still all targeting me. At the very least void the game for everyone. I will loose the game, I have no chanse 3 against 1. This one person who is using 3 accounts will still win and get rewarded. An accusation would not result in anything but an investigation. It is the result of the investigation that leads to sanctions if any.

No, that player only gets to finish his active games. That person can't start any more of them.

Well I strongly suggest that admin look at his problem. It has been on going as long as I have been playing on this site. Dont tell me that nothing can be done about it because I know better. The site can be set up to allow you to void games that cheaters are in. You just need to make it a priority to set the programming.

They are busted as multis, yes, but there is still the chance that we, the hunters, have made a mistake. By locking them out of their games, those people who were incorrectly busted would be at a huge disadvantage for not having done anything wrong. We have all had a game against a multi. Yes, you will lose points in the short run, but it will all even out over time. Sorry that this happened to you.

Prevent busted multi's from finishing games

Postby owenator on Fri Mar 27, 2009 3:28 pm

Re: Prevent busted multi's from finishing off their games.

As the subject heading suggests, it's obvious that there is a high number of accounts that are created and consequently busted for being a multi. I have previously suggested that the points lost in the event that should the game be won by these multi's that the points be reversed to all players involved except the multi of course. I had been advised that this is not possible and there was no further explanation for this. However, the suspension and ultimately, the ban of these accounts still doesn't prevent from these accused from finishing off their games. They are no longer apparently able to create or join new games as a result. They can obviously still log in, and finish off their turns, but I don't see the honour and integrity in that - which is obviously THEIR issues. But, I'm suggesting that somehow they are prevented from finishing off their turns or some kind of block is placed on them and ultimately forcing them to deadbeat.

Protecting the integrity of fair competition honourably. No one likes to lose, but I certainly don't like to lose against cheaters when they will no longer have the capability of playing again especially since the points won't be reversed. Retention - how many of us (premium) members have been put in this situation? Obviously, a very large number of paid members have been put in this situation. I know and realize it's easy to simply regain lost points, but again - it's all about integrity and fair and honest competition.

Re: Prevent busted multi's from finishing games

Postby Night Strike on Fri Mar 27, 2009 3:32 pm

This has been suggested before, but I believe rejected. There are cases where people are wrongly busted, so why should they be forced to deadbeat all their games? This has come to light much more so in those instances where people have accidentally been busted when manimal or other trolls make multis.

Also, I'd guess that a very large percentage of multis are freemiums, so that would only affect 4 games at a time (assuming the multis are playing in the same game). I'd say that on the whole, it's better to know that you didn't have to cheat to win a game, and that a few lost points can be won back.

I dont think we need to have it as a rule. But as a possibility. When it is 100% sure when somebody cheats. There are people who admits it and such. In these cases it is ok to freeze their account until they loose their game. And sure it can affect people in their game but imagine loosing to a cheat. It sucks.

I absolutely understand the cases of "wrongly busted" and it being better to play it safe, and I agree with that position. However, for instances like manimal...come on, there is no reason at all to allow them to continue playing.

This thread collects suggestions together which advocate that busted multi's not be allowed to finish their games. None of these suggestions specifies exactly what should happen in such circumstances. [If there are more threads that should also be merged here, please PM me a link.]

If you're trying to solve this problem there are other discussions - which do propose specifics - that I suggest we contribute to:

Legitimate Player Protection

Postby Woodruff on Sun Mar 29, 2009 10:53 pm

Concise description:
  • Banned multis pulled out of games not yet started
  • Banned multis in games already started be removed

Specifics:
  • Once an account is determined to be a banned multi (particularly one of those who are creating large numbers of multis), they should be removed from any new games they have in the queue that have not yet started (in other words, the game can go on to finish getting players, but the multi would be removed).
  • Once an account is determined to be a banned multi (particularly one of those who are creating large numbers of multis), they should be removed (turning their armies to neutral) in any games they are already playing in.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Conquer Club's legitimate users are somewhat more protected from these illegitimate multis
  • Same as above.

I fully support this part of the suggestion. This will not affect any games in progress and will stop the multis from preying on legitimate members of the community.

It's not the idea that's not solid, it's always the coding. And besides, that won't help these days that much. manimal and Ramned have made it clear they're ready, willing, and able to quickly make 30 or so multi's in a minute. Any game where there are open spots on the same team, or on enough open spots, they can screw up the game.

then how about this? if you are in a game of banned multis, as i saw happened with tdans, then you pm an admin to pull you out of the game. this way, it's not the player who decides that he or she doesn't feel like playing, it's the admin/mod who does so.

Then he can rejoin the game by himself. If it's started, so what. This suggestion wouldn't affect unbusted people at all.

I believe I addressed that by stating that this suggestion was primarily intended to affect those who are repeatedly creating multiple multi's. So the singular individual should not be affected, in my view. Did you read my suggestion?
