Deadbeat Wins !!!

Postby Teflon Kris on Tue Apr 16, 2013 7:34 pm

Operating System: Whatever CC's server uses
Browser: n/a (the actual CC Program is the application in question - possibly fondly known by the programmers as 'Cheatscape'
Scripts/third party programs used: Has the server got Trojan maybe?

Concise description:
  • Special cheating arrangement whereby deadbeats can win by round limit in standard / terminator games

  • Incorrect statement in the Instructions tab: "With round limits, ..,. the winner will be the surviving player with the most troops.


Specifics:
    1. Play with Nuclear spoils and a round limit.
    2. Stack troops on the regions you have cards for.
    3. Deadbeat.
    4. Laugh and watch as your opponents ignore your supposedly irrelevant troops and reduce each other to a handful of troops.
    5. Laugh again as you scoop up the points.
    6. Don't forget to thank the CC programmers for enabling this wonderful strategy.
    7. Visit your doctor if you have any side effects from the incessant laughter.
    8. Keep it quiet and seek out unsuspecting victims in game chat to rape points from.
    9. Lap up the applause as you climb the scoreboard.
    10. Develop a series of excuses, generally revolving around your ISP's terrible connection speed.
    11. Keep on laughing and laughing again as your account in the CC Bank fills with points.
    12. In 12-24 months when, after numerous players leave the site in disgust, somebody begrudgingly changes a line in the program to put an end to this trick, you can always try the 1 v 1 freestyle miss-a-turn-double-turn trick to keep the points flowing in.

Example: Game 12642296

2013-04-17 00:05:30 - RFC Onan was kicked out for missing too many turns in round - 6

2013-04-17 00:20:00 - RFC Onan gained 61 points in round - 20

I guess the problem stems from the fact that in a terminator game, the deadbeat's territories do not go to neutral, so that others may eliminate that player for points. However, the deadbeat player should not be considered when the game ends at the round limit.

Just so you know that this has already been brought to the webmaster's attention when this report came out and hopefully it get's fixed soon before it happens again.

Looks like my 12-24 months guess could be about right.

:roll:

If a map doesn't work is it closed and fixed, or at least fixed straight away.

Not so with new settings features.

Sigh, that win might have got me to the silver medal at last ! :evil:

KA sent me an e-mail (thanks KA, things would fall apart without you btw) so hopefully a fix will happen in the not too distant future.

This isn't the only case in the bug forum so hopefully we will see a result of action.

When we have a fix, we should merge all the similar topics, post a notice that all is well, and move the whole lot to Closed Bug Reports.

I'm not sure why you created a new topic, when you posted in the existing one shortly beforehand. Merging this to the prior one.

I have received a wall report about a similar situation: Game 12592896. In this case, dankk0416 was tossed for breaking the rules, but still won the game when the round limit expired. Like a deadbeater, this player was not active at the end of the game and should not be eligible to win.

If you can't beat a deadbeater, you don't deserve to win. Maybe games like this should just be declared a draw?

This seems more like a definition of the rules to be determined. I will bring this topic up with the team.
