Your recommendation on how to deal with cheating would apply no matter what the chance is. It may not be obvious that your system is flawed based on this situation but once you look at a few hypotheticals it becomes pretty obvious that it's based on convenience not fairness, which is fine if you admit that, but don't pretend like you care about fairness if you're prepared to deal with a 1% and 99% situation the same.

Both actively seek public attention for their victim stories, posting online videos, posting on sites, but other than publicly complaining about the situation, not doing anything.

Using other well known people to try to get reflected attention to ones self aint cool.

If Nolan Dalla did it, sue him.

If Fernando is innocent, play live and show what a great player you are that needs no tricks to win/

Until then, they risk looking like people playing the role of victims in order to seek attention.

Personally, I still find Fernando dodgy as hell, but just haven't got proof. His win graph would look like the superuser ones, of impossibly high win rates.

But his drawing attention to himself reminds me of a Hitchcock film, where two students kill someone, then hide the body under a table in the middle of a party, thinking they are so smart they will never be discovered. A bit like smartass cheater drawing attention to allegations against them of cheating.

Although currently in beta, you can have a sneak peak of what's in store... I have managed to obtain a screenshot of the prize wheel:



To participate in the beta version, use the Star Code: slooF lirpA

Please Note: 'Suspected Cheating > (you lose)' has now been changed to 'Suspected Cheating > Please Advance to Nosebleed Games'
Important Note: I am not taking any sides, everyone involved on both sides is fine and wonderful. This post was entirely inspired by the phrase 'Gender Reveal Night'.

He's absolutely right. Fernando should be standing-by to play really anyone live. If he can't play JM at 1k a pt. (It is pretty big time of JM to call for 1k/pt. Play the guy at 100/pt or meet him in the middle.) Then play whomever is waiting on more reasonable terms to prove your point. And work the way up. I was leaning towards Fernandos side from the start (even though I hated the BS video of him chasing down players), innocent until proven guilty, but I don't see him out there trying to proving his point. There are guys out there playing right, at 100/pt or 50/pt live? Get into it if you're really dying for action. At least its not being reported if he has. At the same time, I'm not buying Natasha's side either after seeing her coming up with reasons to dodge the debt. The gender reveal excuse was classic. God it really kept this thread's heart beating.

Fernando. Play someone already dude. There are people rooting for you, and others not, but do something.

you can instead say you're animal is an "emotional support" animal. emotional support dogs dont have to be professionally trained. when i drove a bus i was supposed to tell people they couldn't bring their dog or whatever on the bus but if they said it was a service dog or emotional support dog i was supposed to allow it. and you shouldn't ask what the persons disability is either. i would ask if the dog was service animal or emotional support and even if the person said it wasn't i still let it on the bus. idgaf all dogs are welcome on my bus. unless it looked liable to bite someone or something or was a great mastiff.

Re: Jason Mercier spreads unfounded cheating accusations

That is what that sign is referring to and it is bull****.

Everyone also always says their dog is nice and friendly and would never bite my daughter, so she shouldn't be scared. Then how do all the dog bites happen?

What's wrong with Mastiffs? I understand if the excessive drooling was the reason (drool so much literally could make the floor slippery for patrons); however, they are a very friendly and docile breed.

Re: Jason Mercier spreads unfounded cheating accusations

The ironic thing about Jason accusing someone of cheating is that Natasha hooked up with Jason while she was still with her husband that she had just married, therefore she obviously cheated as well.
