I won the game but in the final round, my target - ABN – PFDR announces to everyone that the game is over unless someone nukes the region I’m going to finish him off from. This is a fog game. Because it was a fog game, no one could see that I was about to finish him off because otherwise they would want to do something about it. It was to my benefit that the fog allowed our battle to be hidden. My target tried to circumvent this by announcing to everyone that if they can take me out, they better, otherwise the game was over. Somehow this seems like cheating or would I be allowed during a fog game to announce to everyone all the locations of the players that I know and announce how many armies are in each one?

inchul64 wrote:Ok. I'm willing to accept that what he did is not cheating. But if that's the case, why don't more players use the chat during an assassin/fog game to reveal other player's positions. One specific example would be if you know which player is coming for you. Then in order to get your assassin off our back, you would announce all their locations that you know in order to help the assassin coming after him/her. This is only useful in small maps like Doodle Earth and Luxembourg.
inchul64 wrote:In my opinion, in a fog game, players shouldn't be allowed to reveal other players' location. Otherwise, we might be seeing these conversations:
blue: hey yellow, I'm trying to find blue, can you tell me where red's located?
Yellow: sure, if you tell me where green is located.
blue: sure it's a trade. green is....
yellow: Thanks! red is....
inchul64 wrote:After that, all hell breaks loose and red and green start revealing all the locations of blue and yellow and there you have it - no more fog game because every location has been revealed (at that point in time). This may not be cheating but it's circumventing the purpose of fog, I think.

I believe is just a part of the fog game (you can't be sure if is lying), but if you feel is bad then I suggest you to FAMO (foe and move on).
