Why doesn't lichess catch sandbaggers? Because not enough people report them
Report people who break the rules and if they are indeed doing so, they will get banned eventually
@gabriella2002, BANNED. YEAH.
But why would a player with elo 2000 and above play in U 1500 tournaments? Do you want to humiliate poorer players like me? Do you want to amaze people with a phenomenal game? Low-rated tournaments are infested with these scammers.
@campacavalloscacchi What if they just signed up? What if they came to analyze games and just join ? What if they were under 1500 for whatever reason and just wanted to play? it doesn't have to be about YOU. They don't need a reason and it doesn't necessarily break any rules or carry any ill will to speak of.
I am not speaking at random. I know quite well which ones play honestly and which ones cheat. Cheating players usually play well in tournaments, and then lose miserably in non-tournament games. And maybe they have a very low elo (900-1100) and then win with other players with elo 2000 and above (but these are easy to find). Just look closely. I got several banned.
Anyway, sanbagging is FORBIDDEN.
yeah eat peeps who sandbag
@Funkmaus yes I understand that, I was just saying that those numbers carry forward to other arenas as well..I have only played this cash prize arenas twice or thrice and that was months ago, and I can authentically say that more than 50% of the players I faced were severely underrated/sandbagging players..I never said you missed a point but was merely adding that this could also be the reason in the spike of sandbaggers.. :-)
