Suggestion
« on: June 01, 2006, 10:48:48 pm »
I assume that all private contact between teammates in rook is not allowed. If this is not true, then this thread is one big waste of time :P

Anyway, ever since this new rating system was implemented, over half the matches I have played are against opponents with similar rating points (generally high) who are both sat at the table waiting for opponents. This already suggests that they are "fixed" partners.

This may be me being paranoid, but in some cases when I play against such teams, I see pauses during bids and during card play which suggests communication. And in one case I saw one guy bid 90, but his P had the rook and quite a few cards of the trump suit.

Anyway, the suggestion is to ban private communication on tables with other players (you can still talk to people outside the table or people watching).

I am fully aware that people can use instant messagers to also achieve this, but my suggestion will indeed eliminate at least some of the "cheaters".

Bakster, this is already banned. What I need to do is to prevent to "players" from same computer to join same table (as it is done in CyberBattles). I will do it within a week.

Anyway, the rating is only temporary, it will be deleted later, and it doesn't work propery yet.
