sick of this--name stealing

Postby Brad1981 » 24 Jun 2007, 20:59

There has to be a way for someone to use only 1 name for online play. I just joined a game by someone named STEPH and connection was lost. Next thing you know, he is using my name. I'm sick of this. 2 people have now done this using my name for a period of time. STEPH has almost the same ELO as me but way fewer games. I have almost 500 games played.

Are you sure it was not a bug, sometimes when you quit game it's still ond the ongoing game list...

This way other can see you playing 2 games in the same time or hosting two different games...

I'm sure. I actually "watched" this guy play and the score kept rising until his match was over.

I have recently noticed that I could not play against Brad because he suddenly has a higher ping than before, could it be that this is the false Brad? Also, there has been a Brad that I am able to play with, but he keeps rejecting me. I doubt that neither of these is the real ladder Brad. :lol: :lol:

Hello,

this "STEPH" might be Marin from Croatia... Maybe Stuey knows him..?

About name protection, it'd be not too hard to do it for people who bought the game, but I'm not sure when I could do it...

Nope, don't know any Marin playing TE, maybe somebody else from Croatia knows him.
