losing deliberately

#1 Post by Palpoutrox » Wed Dec 05, 2018 10:55 am

Hi, i didn't know where to post this, but didn't want to bother an admin either. So here it is:
In a drawing situation, the player behind the smaller party of one of the alliances disappeared and let a new player in.
This player was purportedly asked by the bigger party to let them win; since the new player had nothing to lose, they agreed, and let the big one invade them without resistance, while stalemating the other party until the end.
I can't see any reason why this shouldn't relate to unfair play.

Please email the mods at webdipmod@gmail.com and mention the gameID (found in the url when you open the specific game) or just paste the entire link. This is something we need to be bothered about ;-)

Always please email the mods when something fishy happens, that's what we're here for!

That being said, there's no rule against bad play or throwig a game. If the bigger party managed to convince the new player to help them win, they did well with their diplomacy.
If no cheating was involved, there will be no moderator intervention.
