To Catch A Cheat

Written by Don

The daily challenge now has an honesty rating system under MyTourney. This is a tool that we can now use in disputes analysis. The average honesty rating is one dimension we will be taking into account when deciding whether or not a player has used external assistance. The ratings are viewable only to administrators and the rater.

This is a good time to state that the only appropriate avenues for accusing a fellow player of dishonest play are:

  • Honesty rating system
  • Directly contacting the site administrators

Accusations in chat are not appropriate because everyone is entitled to initial presumption of innocence. Accusations via the public commenting system are also not appropriate because the comments are visible immediately without giving the accused the chance to present their case.

    I kept beating a friend by hundreds and he stopped playing for about a week or so. Not in an insulting way, but he doesn’t have the best grammer nor is he the best speller. He challenged me after a week or so, and has an incredible vocabulary as well as the ability to strategically place words for his next move, not at all the player he once was. When I asked him, he said he just needed to clear his head. I am trying to look at it as a compliment that he may be needing help to compete, but non the less the thought is making me not want to play him again. So I’m choosing to believe him.
