My argument is that people will subconsciously favor a friend. Seems pretty natural to me. It takes a great deal of effort and concentration to "forget" in a game that the person is a real life friend. Most people cannot muster this kind of discipline so the best solution is to remove the possibility.

I totally agree with this except for the part about automatically (subconsciously was the word you used) favoring a friend... my point was that that doesn't necessarily mean that you're gonna be on your "friend's side" so to speak...

I also agree with Fitz in regards to the "cheaters are gonna cheat" position... there's only so much legislating you can do... a lot of it is gonna have to come after the fact with rules enforcement.. unfortunate, but the way it's probably gonna be...

I have not read the whole topic, but I ve stated again elsewhere, I do not play standard flats-no spoils-nuclear with friends, but I do play escalating games (and assasins). It is hard to cheat there...

How do you tell who's a friend in real life vs. someone they've become sort of friends with online.

There's also some groups on here that like to play only with their friends to avoid the ocasional jerk that makes games less fun for them. What about that?
