I was winning this game and suddenly I could not move anymore eventhough my connection was fine. Also my oponnent could move instantly and kept asking for draw eventhough I was clearly winning.

Did this guy sabotage my connection or something? The chat was working fine.

I love this game but I've had enough of it. I am sick of losing games I shouldn't because of bullshit.

My friend, you have absolute right to feel this way. I have also faced and felt the same as you. You forgot to mention his name. I think that the only solution is to punish all these cheaters by canceling their account.(the terms and conditions of this site says so) and then upgrade the software.EVERY DAY THE CHEATERS INCREASE BECAUSE SOME SΗΟWED TO OTHER PLAYERS THE WAY TO WIN LOST GAMES. DO SOMETHING NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. :angry: STRATEGO IS NOT JUST A GAME IT IS LIFESTYLE.

I have stated in another post similar to this one, if you ban someone they'll just sign on elsewhere and/or on a new name and continue their poor sportsmanship behavior. The only true punishment to stop this sort of behavior and prevent others from taking on their example "RESET THEIR RATING!" Most people cheat because they want to get to the top, and they believe "If you aren't cheating then you're not trying" is slogan some people believe here in the U.S. Reset that person who cheats who is a silver rating back to a bronze spy, then they'll get the picture.

IT IS TRUE.somebody has found the way to make the opponenet who is ready to win to stop moving.it happens to me 2 times already. i was winning for sure then the guy asked for some break one two times
then i think its a trick to stop the oponent moving. then i lost the game. i could not move any piece,,,and even i said him he tricks ,he said 'i dont knwo 'but obviously he is a techer
i suggest next tiem we keep teh names of teh cheaters and write to teh manager to pull them away
stratego is for fighter's hearts not for cheaters

There have been many posts on this topic on the forum - search for "cheaters". The draw/pause request bug is widely known by the site developers as well as the site community which unfotunately includes the cheaters.

 

Report the cheaters user names via email to Karen at customercare@stratego.com. They will contact the cheater(s) directly. This is the only way I've found for the site administrators to take some kind of action against the bug exploiting cheaters.

 

Karen has told me that the site developers will add draw/pause request limits (I think 3 max per player per game) in the next major release which hopefully will put an end to most of the rampant bug exploiting. Just make sure to do nothing when a cheater asks for a draw/pause as the request will time out and disappear if you do nothing which, so far, has been the best method to avoid the game freeze.

 

The biggest spam/pause bug exploiter I've seen on this site is a German guy that goes by at least 3 usernames: 'SS', 'SSYO', and 'Simply The Best'. Report him/them and report him/them often.

Good info Spiff, thanks. Hopefully this will clear the cheater-thread of some future irrelevant posts (lately, there have been many..)

Thanks for sharing information Spaceman.  Glad to hear Karen who is part of the site is on the case.  This site will be more much fun again, once the spamming is done.  I would also hope still that besides just a warning that if people like SS who get reported often does get their rating reset.

This is fantastic news.
About the draw glitch : even if you don't react, there is still a possibility that your game will freeze anyway.
I've had this with Gr, a bronze colonel. I didn't react at his so maniest draw request attempt and right before i can get his flag, his pause request forced my game to freeze even when I didn't react.
After that game another player, Le Poulen, came into a private chat to tell me about my lost game so I think it's the same person and in one way or another he manages to "glitch" the ignore of the draw and of pause request.
I love the smell of Napalm in the morning

it would be cool if the admins said who ever finds out how players do this draw glitch (because ive tried once when i was losing a game and nothing happened so they must be doing something else as well as requesting pause and draws over and over ) that you would win points and battle coins and then they punish every cheater on this site , without cheaters this site would be awsome because they wouldnt have problems with complaints all the time so they could work on updates for this site

But is it true SSyo? Are you being like this because you are cheating?
