have a look at this^

I happen to look upon this game in the open games section while browsing games. Upon first inspection it looks like a half decent European colonisation game. Curious as to the set up of this game i click on the map previewer and find that slot U, while disguised as Ukraine, has hard to see territories at each corner of the map, thus almost ensuring victory.

This is goddamn disgraceful, it is essentially matchfixing. i'm no stranger to slightly lopsided custom scenarios but something like this is completely different. The host of the game is bound to win through the straight deception of innocent people who want to play a game. I can imagine that this isn't the first time it's happened and it's bloody outrageous.

I ask everyone who joins a game, especially custom scenarios, to check the settings to make sure you aren't cheated and so people who are so arrogant as to do this are caught out.

I also forgot to mention that the bonuses that that slot controls have been increased so he is pretty much unfightable

He's right you know.

I have blacklisted the games creator.

It's Sun God, he's known for abusing his game creator power (for example, switching slots of people he doesn't like) and if the game isn't his, he often just screws it up and goes PE, attacking everyone around.

Is it a roleplaying game? Otherwise it is very stupid.

Apart from big bonuses, he has different territories all over the world which helps him to capture and expand quickly. He can get an easy win with the big bonuses alone, but he still wants more edges. What a loser with no skills!

I'm confused. This game is classed as ranked. I thought a game which uses custom scenarios cannot be ranked. The system automatically displays a warning message about custom scenarios but still let this game ranked. How come?

It doesn't say it can't be ranked, but warns you that players might make the game unbalanced. In diplomacies, they're usually for roleplaying purposes. Sun God makes them to f**k everyone else up.

I don't know where I get the idea. Now I re-read the wiki page about ranking and practice. It list any games with uneven teams are always set as practice games, so it seems logical to me a game with a custom scenario must be practice too. The developer should fix it.

This is another game which is set by him and gives him a guaranteed win, but it is a practice game.

The chat says he voted solely because it was a practice game... lol. 0/10 would blacklist again.
