Ofcourse I know the game live. Half the population here plays it.
 
Played daily during university time against co-students.
 
I noticed this site only months ago.
 
Are you kidding me?
 
Please provide email in private message. I am going to follow up with game owners again. Will include MT this time if desired. This behavior is unacceptable and destructive for this site. Especially from moderators. I am a paying customer here.

Have you played in live tournaments, too?

Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is.

@Major Nelson- I can say with 100% certainty that -Sniper- is not Nick

I'm always a winner- win or lose the game. I take my mistakes and learn from them!

I fail to see how questioning the authenticity of an elite player who has appeared from nowhere and joined a tournament (providing no prior online history and listing their only previous alias as an account which had a record of 36-14) is destructive to the site.

New players join tournaments all the time (very few come with suspicious records) and of course some of them are ranked highly. A player who reaches approx 980 ELO in under 200 games should expect some questions and a little cynicism from the tournament committee and elsewhere.

That isn't to say that a player couldn't learn the game properly before joining online - we see it frequently especially in the countries that have Stratego clubs. But a 980 player is extremely unlikely to lose 14 of their first 50 games (to opposition no stronger than 350 ELO). Perhaps you had terrible Internet and had a load of bugs. This isn't impossible.

My point is not that you are definitely an alias of a player who has played here before, my point is that the circumstances suggest you could be.

So you can be insulted and outraged and criticise the atmosphere of the site (you know my opinion is that you are pretending to be insulted), and you can complain to the site authorities (again), or you could accept that if I walk into a room and you have crumbs on your face then I might think you had eaten my croissant.

Sniper, if what you say is true, TheOptician just gave you the biggest compliment a new player could ever recieve, be appreciative not offended. If the crumbs on your face are indeed not someone else's croisant, just share a little of yours. Someone just took the guys breakfast, give him a break.

OK. Will let it slide. The Optician and Wogomite had fair points.

 

Wondering whether the interrogations/accusations will cease or return if I would hit 1025, 1050, ... It happened at 650, 850 and yet again.
