do you mean these are all your second accounts?

No,Napoleon.

Of course these are not mine. Are multiple accounts of other players.

 

My accounts are Dekaeneas-Spy,ODHGOS,OLYMPOS,DARTAGNIAN

In the past with the second accounts thread, there were some people who commented that we shouldn't worry about this and just play the game using different setups all the time.

 

My main interest in second accounts is as a time saver and to keep things less confusing. I have quite a few different standard setups, of which there are several I prefer more than others that are more tried and tested. Therefore, what I do is keep track of who I play. If I play a player for the first time with a high ranking and lots of games played, I typically use one of my setups, lets call it "Setup 1" (which changes every few months). Then if I play the person again, I use a different one, lets call it "Setup 2", then "Setup 3", and then after that I just mix things up. Otherwise, I would get confused if I've used setup x with the player before or setup y, etc. If he is keeping track of my setups, then I could be in trouble if I put the exact same setup again. Although this keeps things more organised for me to remember, it is a big risk if I play someone with multiple accounts who I've played before and then they know my exact setup if they are keeping records. After all, that is one of the main points to have second accounts for a lot of people, to scout setups.

 

If I meet a player who I have not met before, then I just create a custom setup. Unfortunately, this takes time and these custom setups are not always the best designs. The main suspicion red light is high ranked players with low number of games played. Also, I wish I could easily see the person's flag when setting up (I only know how to see this when the game starts), so it could further assist me in diagnosing whether a new account I am playing is likely a second account (e.g. the Israeli(s) who seem to have many second accounts).

 

If I have to treat everyone fresh and create a new setup each time, it will be very time consuming and I'll end up with poorly thought out setups sometimes. If I just randomly choose among my set setups, then there is a chance that I've used the same exact one recently with the same player.

 

If anyone has a better system, then I would be happy to hear about it.

 

In conclusion, knowing people's second accounts saves me time of having to make custom setups all the time if I am playing that player. I will likely know whether I'm on game 1, 2, 3 etc with that player.

I suspect Walhall of being a double account.

I have played him twice and lost both games. But, he played extremely well with unique setups and a memorable playstyle. I do not think I have played him before but this is a warning to those who do encounter him to use a new setup.

This site should enforce a one-account only rule as soon as possible.

Hmm somehow I can see that. Always talking about political 'fakes', see 7ups posts section: http://forum.strateg...m/user/179-7up/

7up was voted a two-month ban back in January 2015 and is eligible for reinstatement. He never requested it so it was never lifted. But he is still eligible.

Ace 72 is Richard Ratcliffe (#2 in the UK... after me lol ;)) Ace 68 is a belgium player, He plays like Keyser Soze 999 but not like eb124. eb124 is more of a defending player. 


I play as Sevenseas & Don't Cry

Also, here's a list of suspected alias accounts. These are accounts with at least 500 rating (with 2 exceptions) that had quite a low number of games played. I didn't record the number of games, but unless many of these players recently migrated from another site, they are probably aliases. It would be interesting if anyone could shed some light on them. Note that I recognise that some may have come from other sites and be new to Stratego.com and there is also the possibility that some just picked the game up quite quickly, so it is not an accusation.

The following are on the Clean Ranking list, but had low games played with high ranking when I first played them. I'm pretty sure that Bajoshua had just migrated from Gravon, but I'm not sure about the others (possibly something similar).

 

GrizzlyBaer, Mimis69, Bajoshua, Overlord_98

Just wanted to point out GrizzlyBaer, Bajoshua, and Overlord_98 are pretty "famous" players here

Where I get a little mad is when I run into a very low ranked multiple account of a very high ranked platinum player.  If I lose to the main platinum account I only lose 1 - 3 points.  If I lose to a low bronze account of a high ranked platinum player then I lose 20+ points.  That makes me rather unhappy.   However like it was stated above.  No end will ever come to this so all you can do is take it in the ear and continue on.


Let anybody that believe's something is impossible be interrupted by somebody else completing the task, for it is only impossible for those who cannot.
