A few players have attempted to manipulate their rating by playing themselve repeatedly. We are able to check IP addresses and watch replays for all games. We will undo rating gains related to any wins we deem questionable. Because of the Elo system, any rating manipulation only lasts about 40 games as you will end up where you belong unless you constantly manipulate the system.

Thanks.

We know many people will play at the same IP address. For instance, a game company may have 50 people all at the same IP address. However, 10 consecutive 1 minute games against someone at the same IP address is pretty obvious.

I will be making the call on any questionable games. I will know what is BS and what isn't. Don't worry.

Aren't you going to punish those who did it?
Otherwise you have to get 10 employees just to check that....
I'd say give them a -100 rating or something.
