Check out Amadeus BSing some guy that he is new in the tech support section. This guy (Amadeus) has been posting in SC3 since 2016, played in tourny in Feb.
Thats why we need a ranking because of people like this.
This is so pathetic.
Based on my experience in multiple online wargaming organizations, I would assume that is probably not really that uncommon. The problem with it is that it can ruin a new guy on PBEM altogether. Had Amadeus not submitted that screenshot to identify a bug, no one would ever have been the wiser. His opponent, however, might forego the game entirely after having his head royally handed to him by another "Rookie". Can you imagine the effect if Sugar portrayed himself as a snot nosed, Rookie in a game against a genuine Newbie? OMG!!!
The only thing you can do is call attention to it, and publicly censure the guy for his subterfuge as you have done. The problem with that is that only a few people will ever read the forums to see it, and the chances of you ever discovering it happening are really very slim. Such prevarication is not good for our hobby, but some people are really serious about winning, despite any ramifications that may be caused by their methods. They think it is all about them. It isn't, but some people never do manage to figure that out.
Shame on you, Amadeus!
