You are quite wrong. It has nothing to do with the fact he is Conqueror and everything
to do with how he has conducted himself in the past and the very nature of his recent wrongdoing.
In Blitz's own words:
I have been conqueror for almost a year now, and several other times in the past, so, I don't need to cheat, in fact it goes against my own values as I have reported many cheats to the mods in private pm's over the years.
So here's a guy that lives by the rules and likes to use them to bring down others. Well now the shoe's on the other foot.
This is a site that relies on fair play and adopts a points system to govern a leaderboard. How do you think people such as myself - and doubtless others like me - feel when someone whose boasts we've had to read for years turns out to be a cheat?
He set up games. He then invited an absent player. He then logged into that account and accepted the invites and controlled that player's account. Is he kicked out of those games or given a points reset? No....he receives a warning, so it's all hunky dory in Conquerorland.
So what's the message I've got? That I can start some games and invite dormant TOFU members (whose passwords I possess) into those games and thereafter play their turns - and for this I will receive a warning as it's my first offence. Blitz has already received warnings in the past for his forum activities - and here's a third offence, a big one at that - but CC obviously loves him.
As for my membership and this being the internet. It's a game site equivalent of a game we all know very well. I don't think I'd like to sit a table where the player sitting next to me slips a few extra armies on to the board or starts playing on behalf of another guy sitting opposite me.
