# 6432
It's funny that writer of # 6427 post doesn't consider me a competent person just because I don't have time nor will to write long empty sentences about such an obvious case as this. Maybe this is all a joke and successful trolling of EL commitee? It would explain a lot.

As for my competency - I uncovered the first cheater in EL history, many of them throughout the years and almost all of them during last "program era" of kurnik. And I don't remember being wrong about anyone who I accused publically, even though they fought back and had defenders. And yes, lot of them were far less obious than this. But yes, I guess there are many more competent people.

Again, it's really absurd to even discuss about it, but we were told IN HUNGARY by HUNGARIAN (I won't mention the writers # because it would be quite an embarassment) that he uses a program online and he (drabos) didn't have any problems admitting it. Afterall, I think you all can check his games from TWC and if you understand gomoku at least a little bit, you should see what's going on.

RE: Cheater
# 6428
Ondik, I know some people resign because of cheaters' attendance and completely understand it. That's why I asked questions containing clear suggestion: if Committee of EL members don't know too much about identifying cheaters, they should use experienced searchers' methods instead of their imaginations about unfair playing.

Angst, I agree that every evidences we consider give us only probability, not complete certainty. However diminishing significance of game analysis is wrong solution. For me - and probably for every person, who knows a bit more about finding cheaters - this is the most important hint. I value its importance during judging process at 90%-99%. Other factors are of little importance.

I'm glad you admit you're not expert. Now it's time for draw a conclusion. Too strong belief in friendly atmosphere means naivety, which is insolently abused by cheaters. Of course looking for them it's not your main duty, although you decide about finding guilty or not.

Gergo, it isn't necessary to convince me about work in Committee of EL as devoting free time, beacuse I was or I'm ivolved in many activies connected with gomoku too and appreciate every kind of action in favour of our environment. Declaration of accepting external aid seems positive forecast. Summarising, I would give one, basic advice: judging player accused of using program should base on different elements of game analysis: percentage, playing style, key moves' convergence, sometimes also strategies in overlines' threats or schema openings.

RE: Cheater
# 6427
Thanks for valuable comment, Pawel. I'd like to answer your 2 last questions only:

1) Of course there is no such a form, it may include renlib analysis, written material of suspicious moments or a revealing conversation, analysis of video-recorded games etc. The evidence can contain just a few games or even moves or a series of games of more seasons (like never missing a single win, play in the same pace or playing deliberately weaker under time pressure etc.). The evidence must be clear and consistent.

2) As Piotrek mentioned, we devote our free time to make things work a bit smoother. Although we make our best to find cheaters and keep the league clear, the online system will never give you 100% evidences about unfair players. We will never be able to prove if someone used some extra material (program, database, board etc.) but we always have to try to keep playing clear. From this aspect we accept anybody's help in connection with future accusations. According to your comment we might consider you as a competent person in this question, not like the writer of #6424 comment.

RE: Cheater
# 6425
Here are my responses:

Ad. 1) In my opinion there is no satisfactory evidence (especially just game analysis), probably only video recording or written confession would be enough. Obviously, life is not easy, so we need to decide on material received in particular case.

Ad. 2) I don't consider myself as competent in the field of finding cheaters. If I would, I probably should work for FBI or other organisation. I recommend you to read EL Rules once again. Our main role is to decide in serious cases, not looking for cheaters. We trust this is serious competition, but still we would like to see more friendly atmosphere here. We need to decide basing on our knowledge and using common sense.

Am I competent member of the Committee? I wouldn't like to judge myself. I can only add that my colleagues from the Committee are devoting their free time for you to make the things working. From your perspective we are probably making many mistakes, but there is never ill will.

Best regards,

LOL, you can't be serious. He will even admit it himself that he's cheating :D

Ask yourself next year why less and less players are participating in EL.

RE: Cheater
# 6421
Being guided by general opinion about player on this stage of proceedings I consider as unjust and unreasonable. Everyone should be equal before the law. We can take into account opinions in final stage by analogy to administration of justice: if the defendant is found guilty, he may by punished lenient e.g. for the sake of knowing him, not being recidivist etc. Before judgement the defendant should be unknown for us.

Blinking during games - in contrast to percentage of identical moves - means nothing. Nowadays only these cheaters, who are right idiots, don't use program for not blinking. I suppose, that there is no cheaters-fools among EL players.

Next issue: time consuming for making moves. Playing very fast, especially making the hardest, deciding moves, immediately, may be important clue. Unfortunately, this rule don't work inversely. Playing slower, using longer time breaks, we can not recognize as guarantee of honesty. This can be misleading or lags.

Finally, I want ask Committee of EL members:

1) How should look like satisfactory evidence(s) to determine a cheater?

2) Do you consider yourselves as competent in the field of finding cheaters?

RE: Cheater
# 6419

The Committee decides according to the EL Rules. As there is no precise information how to proceed in such a case there is a standard voting procedure.

I am sure you understand there can't be exact % to be supposed as satisfactory to determine a cheater. No-one from The Committee considered received material as sufficient to punish Drabost.

My personal opinion is that % of identical moves is not the only one and most important factor while making such a decision.

I would take into consideration also:

- general opinion about player - problems in the past (if any), presence on live tournaments, performance in other competitions, opinion on player's reliability from trustworthy people who knows him/her personally

- behaviour during the games - blinking or not, time consumed and distance between moves (if there was trustworthy witness during the games)

- games analysis - number of moves identical with program, however taking into consideration if the moves were the same in the beginning of games, how the situation looks in not sure positions and in the obvious situations, if there were suspicious moves (like eg. in a case of overlines).

Summarising, I can imagine situation, where 50% of identical moves can be enough and on the other hand sometimes 80% is not sufficient. Obviously, the highest %, the more suspicious we should be.

RE: Cheater

In my personal opinion such percantage does not exist. Prooving smb is cheating is really hard. Each case is different and shood be thoroughly analysied.

RE: Cheater
# 6412
I would like to ask the committee.

How many % of moves identical to the program are supposed to be a satisfactory proof to determine a cheater?

For team Renegades
# 6404
In case it proves bappka is the same player as bashibyzyk, consequences will be taken leading to future penalty points and game points loss as it would qualify as an abuse of several points in our rules.
So I suggest to consider possible comeback with the same real name, change of kurnik nickname if it won't be available anymore could be discussed.

RE: Cheater
# 6403
I suggest if there is some suspicion, committee should be contacted directly without starting potential flamewars by public accusation.

In this case committee didn't find the evidence sufficient, but will watch closely in next rounds, thanks for analysis Michal.

RE: Profile name
# 6146
Igor, i have explained what is a reason to fill in a name in the latin alphabet. EL is an international competition and thus should be used most common language for all participants. In fact it is English language.

It is true that it is not said directly in rules one should provide his name in latin alphabet. I count on your understanding. Just imagine how could you read a chinese or arabian player's name if it was written in native language.
