Bravo, I say!
I finally tried this game, after much hesitancy, due to others ruining games I've played, both online and Real Life. I have been pleasantly surprised by this game: it has proven to be quite fun, despite an occasional less-than-pleasant individual. Cheaters ruin many games, and not merely for me, I hope!
Thank you for taking measures to insure fair playing, and keep at it for the sake of the game!
Perhapse, instead of the usual system, it has a Challange random... where you don't send a message, and your name, and flag are not displayed, you can still refuse, in case you're going out for something to eat, and someone challanges you right before leaving... but this way people wouldn't be able to challange known affiliates.
(i say the flag thing, because i've long suspected people of refusing me because i have an American flag...(paranoid much?)
this way we ton't have people exploiting no pillz mode, or EVO, or whatever systems of play... complete random... complete chaos... afterwards, you can send a message, thanking, complementing, or other... but nort before battle
I may have missed something, but how is such simple stuff as playing EVO during tournament treated? While by itself it will not win you tournament, it very well could make it very hard for non-EVO to place high (fast games with high point gain).
Would not it be after all best to acknowledge what tournament really is? Just a time to come back to game regularly, play for a little bit extra gain and a little bit more seriousness. There is not that much in stake so make it apparent. No big gain for being very first. Aka make the differences at top so minimal that the top is so numerous it considerably outnumbers the cheaters, so cheaters dont gain much for their hard work. It does lead to egalitarism but this is european game after all. May be make the rewards for being very top more about title than clints. Using stolen money is smart for some people but using stolen title tends to look plain dumb.
Anyway, cudos to authors for making this game generally nice place to be.
