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.

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.
jakewilliams wrote:Thx Bruce, I forgot that was in the FAQ. I'm still not sold that was totally covering what Blitz did here, but the wording does suggest it. In any case, I would think it would be a warning at most.
I noted that Blitz was taking Jobiwan's turns in games together but not in all games, which I said was a legit sitter function. He's not required to take all turns, sometimes I'll just take some turns for another player. Your statement "you should of [sic] been playing his shots in active games that he was missing" is incorrect, Blitz is not required to take ANY turns for him.
Maybe if lack would program a sitting function into the website, issues like this wouldn't happen. Of course not everyone would be happy there, would they?

Eddie reports that jobiwan has been missing turns since march 10th, yet I was assigned 5 tourney games against at the end of last week and he joined all 5 promptly.
He failed to take a single turn and deadbeated out of the lot this morning - I received a whopping 4 points per game. This has clearly been going on for some while and seems very odd that he would log in to join tourney games but not take a turn. He joined the games after me and he got the majority of starts. Why would he sign up, get allocated the starts and not play them?
On the face of it, it looks like either he is point dumping, or he has left CC entirely and his sitters are joining his invites for him then letting those games slide while playing his turns in their team games.
Clearly there would be a benefit to a quads team in employing a cook who consistently loses all games bar his quads matches, in which his turns can be coordinated by a teammate with his password.
We won't know if any rules have been broken until the mods look at the detail, but to sign up for games with a teammate who is on an extended leave of absence until who-knows-when and dropping points fast has the look of a scam.
It might not actually turn out to be a scam; but surely it's better to find a 'live' teammate than risk tarnishing one's reputation by getting involved in these games.

He already stated he joined for him, then proceeded to take every turn. That is severe abuse?
