Carl: you said that, not me.
I said it looks like he is not any good, as I looked at some older games, and he played not exceptional. All newer games show that they were resigned by the opponent after two moves, which looks rather fishy.

But it is well known that there are cheaters around here. Some people get off on arbitrarily raising their ratings by having multiple accounts and pumping points between them. I feel sorry for them, I hope they see a psychologist some day about it.

Has anybody else noted that when you are way behind in a BG match you throw several 2-1s in a row.. When you are miles ahead, and need 2 to finish, you get a double 6!

Относно: Re: Double rolls..
Nothingness: the quality of random numbers here has been discussed before, and there may be issues with them, or not.

However, rolling 7 doubles in a row has a chance of about 1:280000, meaning it is completely normal (and to be expected) that it happens once per 280000 tries.
If you consider that a Backgammon game has about 30 moves per side, and assume about 5000 games are played per year on Brainking, it should happen every other year.
So as annoying as it might be to lose that way, it is not necessarily a sign for something off - it should happen every other year.
Let's hope it doesn't hit you (or me) this year.

Относно: Double rolls..
A few years ago I was in a game of backgammon and I was up about 50Pip and all my pieces were in my home about to bear off, my opponent was behind too far. He ended up rolling 7 straight doubles to win. It seemed suspicious to me.. Have there been other players who have experienced this? All the doubles were 66 55 or 44

Aganju: HappyJ is correct. It is a 7 point match (1 point for a win). Had it of been a doubling cube match then you would have received 2 points.

Aganju: I stopped playing Backgammon for many years on BrainKing because of that. I still think there should be a version offered here that has gammons and backgammons counting that does not use the double cube.

Относно: Re: gammon not working?
happyjuggler0: right, thanks. I missed that little detail, just saw it's a 'match to 7 points', not '7 wins'. But as you pointed out, Gammons and Backgammons don't count here unless the doubling cube is used.

Относно: Re: gammon not working?
Aganju: It has been a while for me in regular backgammon here at BK, but I think it has to say "backgammon with doubling cube" for gammons and backgammons to count, otherwise it is always 1 point per game.

Относно: Re: Proper functionality
AlliumCepa: I had no idea who you are, and your post sounded like the whining of a newbie - you wrote: "Whoever runs this site now, can you explain please?". So i assumed you have no idea, and tried to explain it to you:
Fencer still owns the site, and he doesn't owe you (or anyone else) an explanation, or a bug-fix.

If you contributed something voluntarily in the past, it was your free decision, and although I appreciate it, _I think_ it doesn't entitle you to whining, or earned you the right to complain.

"Whoever runs this site now, can you explain please?" is not _trying to help_, it is requesting something you think you are entitled to. You can ask that to amazon.com if the gadget you bought doesn't work.

But if you want, feel free to continue to request answers. Fencer is still the right person to complain to. I recommend you use the bug reporting site, or the tournament site, not the backgammon site, as your issues sees unrelated to backgammon. And you can contact Fencer with a personal message, and he typically answers those.

Относно: Re: Proper functionality
Aganju: while I was reading posts, I learned that Fencer stopped working on this website asking if someone will assume ownership after him. I am a member of the Translators team since the beginning, 3 years before you joined. With my background in programming, I submitted many Bug Reports in attempt to help Fencer improve his site. With time, most bugs were cleared, but not all. This was intended to benefit all users. Your statement that since I am not currently paying, therefore I have no right to complain, is invalid. If it wasn't for me (and other bug reporters), BK would be an even bigger disaster. Perhaps you should read what other paying members stated before desiding to stop sponsoring BK and leave. Here is another suggestion for you: if you don't Like what others say and have nothing helpful to offer, why don't you shut up? Evidently you do not want to be bothered even to wish a "good luck" because you're too busy with your 500 games. Some of us here still try to provide feedback. Please swallow your arogance and learn to respect others' opinions.

AlliumCepa: Alliumcepa, if you read the posts, nobody specifically runs the site. The server is kept running, Fencer monitors the server, and still owns it. Note that it's free, it comes without any guarantees, and it's use-as-you-find-it. If you don't like it, you get your money back (meaning nothing) and you are free to play somewhere else.
Please don't feel entitled to anything else just because you paid nothing to use it and found it on the internet.

Possibly the longest BG tournament ever has finally come to an end. For those of you who were playing or following Lucky 13 (and are still alive), the tournament was completed in 13 years and 3 days.

Since Fencer considers BK a finished product and does not support it anymore (at least he does not reply to my messages), I am posting yet another Bug Report here.
All new games I create, have the “Include unrated players” checkbox cleared. Still such players are able to accept my games, waste my time and skew my BKR.
Whoever runs this site now, can you explain please?

Me: Thank you for your professional resignation.
Opponent: Excuse me,
was there anything wrong with that?
Me: On the contrary. It showed that you value my time, you are smart enough to predict when a game is lost, you can swallow your pride and terminate the pointless dragging. You do not need my painful and often fruitless explanation why would be reasonable to resign. I respect you for this.

Clandestine 1: The good news is that if playBunny doesn't know it is his turn, it will be 10 weeks if my math is right before he will timeout in his first game, and then he will time out once per week afterwards.

The bad news is that you would have to wait that long for the tournament to be over, but after 13 years I guess 13 or so weeks won't matter too much.
