    Subject: Someone did a trick that Unresponse player pops up.

    Hello

     

    I was playing with a noob teammate,

    And he atacked first while it was nr 55.

    The thing is the other players (enemy's) were saying that he was going to crash the game with unresonseplayer or something.

    I got SS's where can i report it and what are they going to do about it?

     

    Greetings Pete

    I don't know what the consequences are, but he could receive a warning, temporary ban, or a permanent ban. Such things are completely a Ryz0n's discretion.

    I don't know how to do that, and if I did, I wouldn't go sharing it on the forum, because then we'd have more people doing it!

    It's been my experience that Ryzon does look into these things. The best evidence is a screen-shot of a conversation where they say they are going to drop-trick, followed by a screen-shot of them in the drop screen. You wouldn't believe how many times cheaters actually announce that they are going to cheat.

    Remember that a drop-screen alone, even if it comes up at a "suspicious" time, isn't per se evidence of cheating. I know some accounts owned by people who don't cheat but who just have bad connections.

    Actually we see "flashing" players all the time in long games. What is happening is that their connection has gone bad but not completely away. Since these players are almost always people we know well and know not to cheat it's attributable to a bad connection.

    Some things that can cause a player to lose connection: 

    In long treaty games, or even in short games if someone has been on the Internet for a while, some routers and modems will heat up and lose connection.

    Other times it's probably the Internet system itself. For instance the Internet in Mexico, Brazil, Russia, and China often acts up and drops players from the game.

    Other people accessing the same network that you (or another player) are on may have higher priority. If you have access to your router setup page you can give your computer and the game higher priority to prevent this.

    Bad weather -- I've lost more than one connection during the tornadoes we have around here -- if one crosses the right power line or Internet cable, well that's all she wrote for that game.

    Windows update -- sometimes several computers in a game have automatic updates happening at the same time, some updates even reboot your computer, thus kicking you from the game.

    Malware. If you don't have a good anti-malware program and tend to open a lot of attachments and surf sites that cater to porn, file torrents, and music lyrics (for some reason these are often infected) then you may have a Trojan that is using your computer to send thousands of spam e-mails every time your computer is connected.
