Nothing personal mate, it's just inconcievable that Blitz would run a scheme like that: (1) he's anything but a cheater and (2) even if he would have a dark side, there are plenty of players who would be happy to play quads with him, so he wouldn't have to do something like that in the first place even if he, for some idiosyncratic reasons, would be inclined to.
Bruce, 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. I have nothing to hide, so I will be right up front with you on this regard.
Here is an example:Game 8652605
2011-03-25 22:28:16 - leolou2 [team]: Oh where oh where are you at Jobi
2011-03-25 22:29:21 - leolou2 [team]: You should let Blitz have your PW thur a PM
2011-03-26 15:55:29 - Blitzaholic [team]: did jobi miss another turn? geeez

Thx to jakewilliams bringing this to my attention that jobiwan and myself are being accused of cheating. Let me assure you that is not that case. I used to team with jobi sometimes back in the day, he was always a good teammate, so I pm'd him asking him a few weeks ago for some games if he'd like, he said he could not right now, he was in the UK for business or something, I said ok, pm me when you return.
He finally did pm me when he returned to the states and said let's rock out, but may need some help and left me his pw. I did create some games, he did join some and I did join some for him, the only ones I joined for him were some of my inivtes when I noticed the next day he had like 10 hours to join in a 24 hour span, well, when you have to go to work all day, you dont want to come back and take a chance some random dude joined your games, I had that happen in the past plenty of times and it sucks, so yes, I did join some games for him with his permission. This is not against the cc rules and it is not cheating. The public games generally take about 10 to 14 days to fill.
Kraphtone did this to me months back, he joined his clanmates in teams against me without their permission and the mods let it go. I never joined any of his tourney games showing he is active some days and does take his turns. Then I noticed he had been missing turns in games where I teamed with him , he plays some, then misses some, so I pm'd asking him what's up? He never responds, then I pm him again the next day or two angry when I found others of our games he missed turns, cause I cant stand losing like that, he finally replies and said can you help me out then resends me his password as I had forgotten it, I have taken some of his turns in my games and others, but, couldn't take them all due to real life.
I trusted he could make them, and some days he did, when I noticed some days he was real low on time in my games is when I went and took his 1st 5 turns or so to catch him up, buying him some time if he got on later. I even put it in game chat I took some of his turns to hide nothing. This is not against cc rules either. Then I find out reading above that gradybridges said he had a death in a family recently which explains it, I never knew this!
I just pm'd him again to ask if all is ok, I have heard nothing yet. So, what should I do? Reach out to him again? Do I continue to take some of his turns if I can? Do I let him miss his turns? If he is mourning and feels ok some days, does he take them, and if not, he doesn't?, Do I try to ask him if someone else can take his turns? I am trying to do the right thing here, so asking for help on what to do in this situation? What would you do if this was you in matter? Thx for listening and your support on this matter.
