Posted by hughesjr on 7/28/2013 8:16:00 PM (view original):What proof do you have that everyone with multiple teams is cheating?
We can fix the 1000 mile rule real easy ... this game was designed to have one team per world.
Stop all the ******* whining and ******** and moaning and crying and stop ******* cheating. What a bunch of cry babies.
And yes, just ******* quit if you don't like it.
I also dispute your assessment that the game was never intended to allow multiple teams, were you there at the beginning? Did you know that the games developer had multiple teams? His best friend playing the game had, at least, 3 separate IDs in each world.
But they allowed some people to do it anyway.
In all other WIS games except GD and HD, it is not allowed to have more than one team in a league/world.
And it is cheating because there is collusion between 2 teams ... if you have two teams then you know things about both of those teams that 2 separate coaches could never know.
That is not to say that everyone who has 2 teams ACTUALLY uses that information to cheat ... but it is collusive none the less. I know people who have 2 teams in a world who I know would never cheat and who don't need to cheat. But every day there are full page posts about how unfair it is to care about 2 teams in the same world. I get tired of hearing it day after day after day.
Seble said what, that everybody with 2 teams was cheating? Or the original intent of the game was to only have 1 team per world? Either way, I call BS, because I know I had 2 teams and wasn't cheating and I know that the founder of the site had 2 teams in a world and that his very close personal friend had 3-5 teams in worlds at one time.
If you don't like the threads then DON'T read them. Not difficult, and it certainly isn't like they are squeezing out other topics, there are threads still on the main page even though there have been no posts since Friday morning.
For what it is worth, and this is a serious question, for the people who do like the 1000 mile rule, why? My problem was always the arbitrary nature, and the lack of any teeth. It really only affects people who were honest about their aliases (myself included) and doesn't alleviate the potential for cheating. I mean, I'm at UCLA in Tark, so I could pick up Maine, Presque Isle and it would be perfectly fine, but it wouldn't stop me from FSSing the entire Northeast if I so chose. I would have had much more respect for seble if he had just said "No aliases, and if you're discovered, the account will be closed," so you'd lose all credits/teams in other games/etc. That would be a deterrent. Ultimately though, I don't really care, I'm playing out credits and have been since this rule came out, so I'm sure my opinion will be discounted by the forum and certainly the site.
