I was wondering the same thing.  Either he's really good at Dominion or he keeps beating an alternate account to ride up the leaderboard.

Or it's Donald X...

oooh. these are always fun to try to figure out!

the level jumps are at least plausible this time around, and it very well could just be a top 5 player's alt account. of course, to do this they would need a great win rate against top players, and i'm sure someone here would recognize playing them.

naturally though, i am a bit skeptical, due to the existence of a player named Feed Me More who is shockingly below level 0. what is more incriminating then that though, is that when i looked back i found that account at least as high as level 16 back on November 1. (and that 16 level drop is not just due to variance increase over time.) this 'Feed Me More' account hasn't picked up as many games played lately, but im guessing they just switched to another lvl 15 or so account to beat up on. this other account would be hard to find, but we can easily use Feed Me More to track FEED ME MORE's rise:

11-08-2012
FEED ME MORE +7 Levels, +24 games
Feed Me More -1 Level, +20 games
11-07-2012
FEED ME MORE +4 Levels, +6 games
Feed Me More -1 Level, +5 games
11-05-2012
FEED ME MORE +5 Levels, +9 games
Feed Me More -2 Levels, +11 games

not bulletproof, but i think occam's razor would agree that it is just another cheater.

How do you find and pull these game logs manually? I would like to pull my old logs.

That's just the ones from yesterday.
Downloaded and extracted the all.tar.bz2 of yesterday, and then (on Linux (and Mac probably))
Code: [Select]
grep -lE "FEED" *.html | xargs -I{} echo http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201212/17/{}"
to get the links.

edit: grep -lE "FEED" *.html searches all html files in current directory for the string "FEED" and outputs the filenames with hits. | xargs echo just puts the http://dominion.iso.org... infront of it for easy copy and paste.

instructions on how to do it all here. i should probably put a step by step on how to do this (at least until CR comes back up, if it does) on the FAQ or wiki somewhere.

I thought Iso didn't count 1st turn resignations? Apparently, I was wrong.

An easy way to combat gaming the system would be a minimum of turns.

On the other hand, it's pretty hilarious to see these fakes every once and a while.

They've always counted. You don't get to resign without harming your rating if you don't like your opening split.

Are you talking about the time they spend trying to cheat their way up, or the time we spend on the detective work?

Oooh, sorry, I meant the time he spent to game the system. That was a bit vague there, wasn't it?

me and DStu combined likely took less than 10 minutes. more time than that is wasted each day on here arguing absurd edge cases.

Actually I kind of do, but here the strict subset of regex called "string" was enough...

edit: ... which also means the -E for grep was kind of not needed...
edit: actually, when you need call yourself "a" or "Copper" or something, this might need some more sophisticated stuff...

So now that CR is back up...

http://councilroom.mccllstr.com/player?player=FEEDMEMORE

I'm guessing since no games showed up that means he hasn't played a legitimate game, if the jury was still out at all.

CR filters all games under i think 3 turns. So no, he hasn't played a real game.

Oh man this is excellent. I also retroactively got an award for emptying the Curses and winning in a game about a year ago, which is nice.

That'd be a bad idea. Opponent has 5/2, you have 4/3, Mint/Fool's Gold in kingdom, you resign, rating not affected?
