Rigged Games

    We used to have a rule where you weren't allowed to accuse simmers (ie. me) of cheating/rigging or you'd get an instant ban. Occassionally it came up and it was pretty clearly sour grapes, and as such hilarious.

    But are there are games you thought might have been rigged, but you stfu about? This is your chance to grill me!

    I can exclusively reveal that no First Class or List A games on CricSim have ever been rigged in any way (yay!). I almost wish I had more juicy details to give away on rigging at this point, but I was way too autistic and devoted to my canon to really do it. Cases in which I can remember kind of manipulating things were:

    - On Sidhe forums early on (so, not here), I sometimes re-simmed games when active members were all shithouse. This eventually gave me the idea to have the activity/post ranks we have today. CricSim isn't fun when all the best players aren't posting. I didn't care who won games but at times we had like 10 active members across 3 teams, and repeated examples of people who registered and then bailed dominating was detrimental, so I would re-sim those.

    - On this site, I did ocassionally rig the simming averages of players in Second XI cricket when they were really sucking despite clearly activity. There was never re-simming, and I don't think it happened beyond Season 3-4 or so, but sometimes I'd make active Second XI players better in Second XI games before I simmed them. This is really my darkest shame. I regret this immensely, but it also probably helped keep some members around. The worst thing was when they'd do something really stupidly h4x and then get called up to First XI cricket based on it not long after. If you can ever remember me really strongly advising you not to take Second XI cricket too seriously as a selector in a PM in the first few seasons, this might have been why.

    - In CPL 1, I told people I had a really sophisticated way of determining player abilities.. but I actually had a fairly lame way of doing it, and then just manually edited a small handful player abilities I thought were unrealistic. By CPL 2 I had actually succesfully developed my sophisticated way of determining player abilities, which I've always set myself stupid new goals for before starting each new CPL/CWPL, and subsequently not finished for several years. I think most of the databases I created for CPL were for comps that were never simmed, and were then used for CW instead a few months later. Dire really.

    - Gemmell was meant to be shit, I made him h4x for fun. Nah, I'm joking. Gemmell being shit would've been way more fun. I wish he was. I hated his dominance mostly. The worst was when he became medicore towards the end though. zzzzz. If Gemmell isn't going to be gun he should be fucking terrible. Averaging 40 is boring @Boobidy, go hard or go home.

    Oh! @Alej was excluded from simming (even club cricket and Second XI filler shit etc) because I suspected him strongly of being a Skippos multi. I never had proof as such, but I was so sus that when he 'left' the forum I didn't want to have to deal with it any more.

    "Pete Zahutt" (can't remember forum name, might have been pre-Merk) was a Benny multi. He wanted a make a specialist batsman character, and wanted to both stay at the Stickies and explore other clubs. I found this out years after Pete had stopped posting, trolled Benny about it on Facebook, did nothing about it publicly.

    Toddy Harpley was also largely a Benny multi. He was Benny's real-life mate who joined up and made like 5 posts, @Benny made the next 900 or so. I got wise and told him to can it.

    I can't remember any other big multi scandals other than when Callum's girlfriend joined and make like 200 posts without Callum even realising. Good times.

    My last few seasons of form was 100% rigged, and honestly the reason the forum started to die.

    But, the fact you hated my early dominance gives me great joy.

    Explains why I was a matchwinner in the ALC and dogshit in Firsts :laughing:

    Nah I'm pretty sure I'd stopped changing simming averages in Seconds a long time before you joined. You were just like that :laugh:

    The only one I can think of with me involved...I reckon it would have been the first or second mafia game we ever had on here, a Lukic-run Mortal Kombat mafia. I MVP'd that game with my 'scumdar' - seemingly pinpointing the mafia based on 'reads' for the first half of the game until I was taken out.

    It wasn't reads at all. Lukic accidentally copied me in to a group PM he sent to the 5 baddies, and coming clean I thought would have seen me removed from the game. Somehow nobody realised the fuck up. Yuck from me.
