Cheating? What rule does it break?


Hmm, lets think on this.
If you are in a road race and you slip some laxatives in your rival's gatorate, it's not necessarily against the written rules of the race but it would be considered by many to be cheating.

Mmhm, very analogous. Let's see if we can think up some additional analogies:

It's like responding to one of those radio call-in contests, where you have like 4 mobiles calling in at once to give yourself a better chance. It is not against the rules, but it would be considered by many to be cheating.

Any others? ;)

And you're questioning the relevance of my analogy? ;)

Come on, mine's got some nice implied imagery that can't be ignored and is sure to entertain the kiddies.

Now let's up the ante on Andy's analogy...
What if you had one hundred phones ringing in to the radio call-in? Would this make it any more like cheating? You would be a busy caller shuffling between them but it seems at least possible. Hmm....

Btw, Andy, you aren't by any chance speaking from experience on this one are you? I know I am for the road race but as it happens I wasn't the one who won that rivalry, if you catch my drift. :(

How is that an analogy to this? And no...I'm quite certain that would be LEGITIMATELY CHEATING, not "considered by many".

Considering there aren't too many real life analogies to risk, I would say it's as good as any(cough...call in contest..).

The analogy revolves around the fact that something that is not necessarily in the "rule book" can still constitute as cheating. Elementary, my dear Woodruff.

CHEATING at worst, lack of honor and respect for the game and the players and the settings at best.

That will get you some unos for ratings



nonsense... you don't have to tell the truth goodball... it's called war

fog opens up the possibility of deceiving your opponents and gaining an advantage... to suggest it's "cheating" is ludicrous... Is holding back a stack from a boarder cheating? you're representing a single army when there is 30 behind him... Is that cheating? of course not... it's deception... not a perfect analogy for the analogy police, but you get the point...

To be fair it's not war, its a game. Sorry, just a little reality check there.

Still, the point of a war game is to simulate war as much as possible without actually killing anyone or setting fire to any real villages.

it's called hyperbole slapshot... sorry you got your panties in a bunch over it... just making a point

and calling people who reveal positions/troop counts in a fog game "cheaters" is another example of hyperbole...

Remind me whose "panties are in a bunch"?
You realize sarcasm loses its flavor when you hit someone over the head with it, right?

Anyway...
Sounded more like a Freudian slip than hyperbole tbh.
