beware of this player, he cheats and writes setups down, has many accounts.  Change your setup against him.

Do you know any of his other accounts? He seemed to know mine too even though I only started using it recently.

Falcon One I'd say is a legit player.

He plays a lot of games and so is more likely to be a single account player.

I don't see it as feasible that he plays thousands of games on 1 account while simultaneously having other accounts where he would have to play hundreds more , and making notes on every game too. And then having to dig up the right note before the next game.

I've played him many times. He certainly makes some risky moves but that's just his style.

He does have other accounts in which he writes setups down. But it's nothing to worry about, you can tell when he thinks he knows something so just exploit that.

How plausible is this really.

 

He has played thousands of games , does he really write out all he knows of the opponent's set up as he goes along , and keep all these files piled floor to ceiling , then pull one out when he sees he has the same opponent from a while back ?

 

And on top of that he has other accounts he must have played hundreds more and does the same on those ?

 

The purpose of this would be to gain a significantly higher rating than he would be capable of by playing legit . You are not going to do this for the sake of 50pts  .

 

So if he is rated 600 ish you must think he is really only worth 400 or so if he played a game without an unfair advantage .

 

So that would mean if i played him 9 times and he didn't know my set up i would likely win 7-2 or 8-1.

 

I check the results and i have played him 9 times last 10 months . He did not have any secret info on me i believe  , because i used different set ups and he didn't as far as i recall make any moves as if he knew where stuff was from playing me with a different name . 

 

In all these games he was rated between 551 and 701 which is about the same my own rating has fluctuated during this time . So on the face of it we would be pretty even and if he is not cheating then the results should be even .

 

Well the results were 4:4 with 1 tie and you can't get more even than that.

 

I don't think there was anything suspicous about the games i lost . The shortest one was 18 minutes and i think i took a big risk myself there and threw it away .There was 1 match where he lotto'd my open flag but that set up was one i hardly ever use (chosen due to having played him so much before ) but he was actually losing badly in a long game and it was my fault as i could have blocked his lotto piece.

 

So i just think it's a bit unfair that someone calls him a cheat and then a bunch of other people come on and say yes he is a cheat and none of them have any persuasive evidence that they have posted here at least.

Yours is probably the more likely explanation, tobermoryx. He might just be a super aggressive and instinctual player who takes a lot of risks.

He is an aggressive player and I've faced him many times I of course switch my setups if face some more than once.  He still gets careless in his games.  Trickz tells me he faces him a lot and usually beats him.  I don't believe him to be a muti account user.

Writing set ups down is legit when you play online. just change your set ups, no need to complain about it.

To be honest, if so many people think he cheatss, he may be a cheater. But your explanations in his defence may be correct also.

Well it's not illegal, but it's certainly not legit. The only reason you would write someone else's set-up down is to gain an unfair advantage if you were to meet again. This is the definition of cheating.

I mean that this is just something you have to deal with when playing online. Thats why it is important to change set ups once in a while.

Agreed, and learning how to play with many different set-ups will only make you a better player.
