Hi,

https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=10117962

This is an example of what they are doing this last days. Game gives you hundreds cards each turn but you can only play with a maximum of 3 cards. They know the key, but people who doesnt know this are booted by them manually at 1:01 minute.

This are the scammers. Be carefull.

Advice from the past!

- It has nothing to do with Scam!
- Learn the Game, before playing!
- You joined, you risked - wasn´t that obvious from start that something strange with that template?

- No one cares!
- Lottery + Farming for Points: What it gives you?
- Playing against own alts: Hardly anyone cares!

If that really satisfies him, then let them play and Farm! No harm done to others here? Just few fools, who do not read settings - and maybe there is rather a lesson to be learned! As far as he does not play Multiple accounts in Standard Games (although I guess he ranks high on Blacklists) - let him mess around. And if points, level and stats mean that much for you - feel free to copy the system!

this is the second time i've seen them do something like this. this is sun god worthy and really pathetic.

im kind of angry cause i used to stick up for them alot. whatever you think about their names or their preference for fast games, this is far worse. yeah, the other people should have looked at the settings before joining, but this is still on pooncrew and queefballs for even making a game like this.

it's not even about the so-called "victims" of games like this. no one is really hurt by losing a game (unless you are really concerned about stats). it's about exposing pathetic trolling and/or point farming.

anyone who cares about good sportsmanship will benefit from this game being exposed. wouldn't it be nice to not have to scrutinize game settings cause you can trust the person making the game not to screw around? now you know that any game created by pooncrew or queefballs is not even worth investigating. ive already learned long ago that it's not worth my time trying to play a game with them on their terms, and these kinds of posts have helped me in that way.

Sometimes it is possible to have mistakes in templates as well. For example in the first Congo Semi-Wasteland Style tournament I accidentally set the number of cards given each turn to 100 while what I should have done is to let this remain 3 while the number of cards one can hold is 100. It has been rectified in later templates.

Wait...you mean Poon clan? They like fast games just like I like 2000% abandon cards. If you do not like their style please just do not join. Poon run extremely fast games. It is what they are good at.

I will rather suggest that these kinds of games be called "Poon Style" and should be considered a separate variant of WL.

Please just avoid any game created by anyone in Poon Clan if you do not survive fast booting. Fast games are what Poon people do.

I respect people who play fast games. I play them too. I didn't explain too much what is the key about those games they create. They put abusive card settings on purpose so that other teams can't commit in 1 minute. You get 1000 cards each turn, and you can commit with a maximum of 3 cards. So most players dont have time to discard and play at the same time. That is made on purpose to win by booting. All players get booted except them in their games. That is not fair play.

Thanks for the heads up.

This wasn't even my game!!! Nor was it Queefball's. Everyone knows we have fast real time games and fizzer has agreed that it is the player's responsibility to look at the settings. I have never created the card games, and honestly I don't like them they bog the computer down. I want my name taken out of this post because it's not true, I'm pretty sure I got booted from this game. Shyb you know me better than that, don't listen to this bozo.

Strangely, I have to disagree with everyone here. I don't believe this is scamming or cheating! Every team had an equal chance of winning. The settings didn't favor any team and the Poon Squad won because they know how to play the template and others simply did not know. My only evidence is that apart from the Poon team 2 people did not get booted from turn 1.. So it was a fair game just Poon Crew did know how to play the template and the others did not!

@Pooncrew I respect your clan. I just do not know whether I have the ability to put up with such settings..:-)

I again suggest you guys adopt 2000% abandon cards as well.

@Ocean Just like TJC people knows how to play Wasteland Style more than most people (except for some other people familiar with this setting) statistically.

Hey guys, just wanted to clear the air a little bit. First off, I take full blame for this (no anger needs to be directed at PC or QB as I didn't exactly alert them to the settings beforehand). I used a modified version of one of Pooncrew's templates to create this game, but I added the card thing as a way of increasing the challenge (so I could attract players with higher skill), since Fizzer won't let us have 1 minute auto boot. I thought this game would appeal to players who were up for a speed challenge. I really didn't mean anything malicious by it, and before ESP here, I didn't hear any complaints about the settings, presumably because other players saw what I was going for and accepted the challenge.

I won't apologize for booting people because that's the booted player's fault. And while I still think it's every player's responsibility to check settings before joining a game, I'll be sure to put "speed challenge" or something like that in my titles if I use this template again.

So again, sorry for any confusion and hostility I caused. But please, like I said, direct that anger at me and not at my clan or my teammates. They don't deserve it.

Love,
DBJ

PS Yes I did receive a written warning from the Fizz Dog himself so you don't have to worry.

@DBJ Just put "Poon Style" up please..
Poon style is defined as any multi-day game with boot time less than 1 day and any real-time games with boot time less than 3 minutes.
Computer-only poon style is defined as any real-time game with boot time less than 3 minutes that needs to discard at least one card per turn on average. (since you can not discard all cards at once on Android app so mobile users are way more likely to be booted)

Perhaps rules should be changed and each of these styles must be declared:
Practice, FFA, diplo, lottery, poon, computer-only poon, multi-attack, local deployment, no-splitting mode, semi-Wasteland Style, Wasteland Style.

@Tabby all of our multi day games are 3 day boots except for our internal p/r league which has 2 day boots.

also like DBJ said, this was his template, we generally play our real time games with only airlift and gift cards. So his settings don't reflect "poon style" anyway

Sidious I don't see what you're getting at, everyone knows we have been using 3 day boots for months (with the exception of the occasional speed game, where we always make it abundantly clear that we're playing faster than normal).

im not accusing anyone of cheating. if that's the message i conveyed then i am sorry. regardless, settings like these, if not point/stat farming or trolling, are incredibly non-conducive to actual strategic play. if this is how you have fun, more power to you. it makes absolutely no sense to me, but what do i know?

my main point still remains, if you do not have any sense of good sportsmanship, then i don't want to play games with you. seeing how fast you can commit is not a good game in my opinion, and im not really convinced that your motivation is to actually compete with people in a game like this. i think you would have to be incredibly uninformed about how warlight and the internet works to think that this game offered any amount of competition to anybody. fast games are one thing, but when boot time is one minute and you need to shorten it more, you are no longer talking about making quick decisions, but who has quicker internet and a computer strong enough to process the next turn (let alone the insane amount of discards) in time.

also, i would like to add that im not forming opinions based on just this one game. here is another example of bad sportsmanship:

https://www.warlight.net/Forum/122135-terrible-sports

the game in question: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=9951790



this RT game with a one minute boot was created 2015/11/29 16:59:51 and didn't start until roughly 2015/11/30 12:40:23, more than 12 hours later.

there is really no explanation that i can accept for something like this. the chat doesn't really make you seem like very attractive people either:

last time i checked im the host bozo

we do these all the time, they always fill up. just be patient bozo

not my fault those people didnt take their turns in time

veryone else ruined a perfectly good game by getting booted

again, as fizzer always says, if you get booted you have nobody to blame but yourself. not my fault you can't play by the rules


sorry, you sound like brat little kids in that chat, and i can't take you seriously about any of you or clanmate's explanations for bogus games. im not gonna try to get you in trouble or anything, that's not something i want to waste any time on. but i do want people to know that you are not good people to associate with. i got fooled by you once, and im really glad i didn't take you up on your offer to join your clan back in august.

What's fascinating to me is that all three of them showed up trying to defend and/or explain this game like words could somehow change the reality. If you were concerned with doing the right thing, you would need to give each of those booted players a win. (feel free to post the gamelinks here when you do)

Dingle put in cards to add to the time challenge, but didn't actually tell anyone in the game?
Pooncrew and Queefballs were "unaware" of the settings? If I realized that one of my clanmates involved me in an unethical game, it would end by VTE or that clanmate would be unceremoniously thrown out of the clan.

Well, who cares what I think? Point is, if a person wants respect from the community, they cannot involve themselves in these unethical situations.
