Question about "exploits"

Postby JimmyFantastic » 26 April 2017, 21:07

From the CCL rules - Use of exploits will result in a ban. Please report the use of any exploits by PM to the admin team.

What are classified as exploits here? There are a lot of bugs....

Foul TD, TRR on Blitz Catch, fielding players that recover from 2nd OT KO roll, using additional Leader RR in OT...

But also... what specifically were YOU thinking of?

It would be nice for the players to know what is considered bugs/features/exploits, especially when we can get banned.

All of those are acceptable, largely because a lot of players won't even know they are against the rules simply because the game allows it. They are, effectively, not policeable. Consider them house rules.

Exploits are more considered to be gamebreaking stuff, e.g. anything which directly causes the game to crash or disconnect.

If in doubt, ask. If we've not heard of any particular bug/exploit then we'll discuss it and post a ruling on it. People falling foul of it who are reported and who have not heard of it will be warned once.

Foul TD bug was obscure - but more and more people are getting to know about it... I think everyone knows this one is cheating.

Most of the others - people could easily not know about/not check the dice log for, so I agree with letting them lie.

What about using every second of every turn the whole game?

is this considered griefing when you are simply using time that is made available to you within the game?

Could we please have an official position on the matter?

Because currently all we've got is that Dode's "Consider them house rules", which is incorrect both by intention and technically, as at least the TD fouling is mentioned in the "Gameplay/Skills known issues", and two more points have been confirmed to be not working as intended and reported to the developers by QA (though haven't been included into the list yet).

So at the very best Dode had expressed his personal opinion, which I don't believe has enough authority by itself to be reckoned as an official statement. Even taking his COL admin status into consideration, isn't it a collegiate body? Maybe let's hear from the rest of the admins then (and preferably from those who do actually play in COL themselves and care about the state of affairs there)?

At least the TD fouling should definitely be forbidden if you ask me, as it's an explicit exploit and an easy one to police. Just investigate the reports on the occasion, just as you currently do with verbal abuse in chat.
