A little bit behind a person gave me a free points, just first move and resign , again and again .. i was happy 'cause i have much points... After this.... I wanted to play a oficial game .. and after i win .. i don't receive points.. Maybe a bug? maybe a system protection for don't cheat and take a free points to another account? I think someone has mocked me with this.
Am I really banned to don't receive potins?

SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH, google translate is not so good.

If this wasn't an accomplice of yours then it must have been a troll.
There is a mechanism that detects artificial rating changes and disables those player's rating.

And what i need to do?
Turais commented :
I don't know :/
Maybe ask a moderator if he can reset your rating?
Otherwise all I can think of is to delete your account and try to create a new one, although I must admit I'm not very familiar with the policies regarding new accounts for players labelled as cheaters.

I removed the ban. It's not a bug, it's intentional behaviour. Don't rematch people who constantly resign in future, please.

This behaviour is known as sandbagging and is disallowed by the ToS.

Rating is not meant to be obtained for free. By taking them, the machine recognized both you and the sandbagger and automatically banned both of you.

Could've been a casual game where no points are taken or received.
