Subject: prizes for new tourny
I'm going to put up some cash and meteorites once we get to a certain number of players.Each group winner will get a prize and the further you progress the bigger the prize.Come on come all-not necessary to join the FB group I should think but you know the old saying about curiousity and the cat

Eric Hanson is in-there's a new face .Rip Washington has been invited-he did accept my friend request earlier.I think he was one of the ones on the old yahoo/msn photo group.He hasn't played on IYT in a year--come on fellow sab/esp players, lets get a massive tourny rumbling

Subject: facebook group
took a notion and created a FB group for Sabotage/Espionage players .Saw that Rip Washington aka Saboteur had a FB link in his profile as I was perusing an opponents setups.Have sent him a friend request.Playing some decent games on IYT at the min so will invite all opponents.It's a good platform for posting pics and possibly links to business websites and the like.Anyway,not everyones cup of tea but you can create a FB profile specifically for the group if you're concerned about privacy issues.Could be some fun http://www.facebook.com/groups/272272279545343/

I'll get around to cover pic etc in next day or 2

Subject: Re: Requests to Fencer
Chaos: ..now I'm confused........the bug makes it possible to in fact not just move forward--that is the bug....it is relevant if you were down to 5 pieces or less surely? Actually now I think about that I'm not sure the piece number relevance is known.Can you link the game in question for us please ...

28. November 2011, 10:58:12
Celticjim 
Subject: Re: Requests to Fencer
Chaos: you said earlier when referring to the rule about not moving back where one came from...."One can corner an opponent by limiting their movement abilities using this rule. As has just been done to me..."...so I thought maybe you would take the opportunity to 'check' whether the bug had been fixed,not ask about it as we all know that is pretty much pointless .....good luck getting a corner variant implement if that is the plan--never was a fan of that one

I shouldn't have to write to him and refuse to do so--I found him ignorant--fair enough english is his second language and I don't speak his tongue but my request to have pictures deleted was hardly a technically challenging one---

On IYT (where I am now a paying member again) the next round of tournament starts when the sections are decided-seems logical

Chaos -they were simple questions about pictures on my profile that I wanted deleted.No way to delete them and no help from person who answered.Another point that tournament that I am supposedly still in--the outcome is decided--Nothingness wins the section yet everyone must wait for a nothing game to finish between the 2 lowest ranking players.Ridiculous

Sandoz: I can't join- that sucks.Says I'm already in a tournament even though my section is lonnnng finished Championship world BK 2011

can I do anything about this.The reason I'm not a member any more is because of complete lack of support for couple questions I had.No more cash from me for BK

MTC: is it not possible for you to move 4 of your pieces next to his 2 and then when he takes one way you move the other,hope that's clear enough.I'm saying it may be possible for you to sneak past him anyway even tho your pieces are inferior
If not I would write Fencer a message

21. January 2010, 13:40:11
Celticjim 
I've had a message from Fencer and basically he is saying that any issues will be sorted in the upcoming brainking upgrade as the game models are being rewritten.He didn't say when

MTC: I had a late night and I'm just awake so gonna try and use that as an excuse as to why I can't get my head round that game MTC,can't quite figure out whats happening.Wait,so it's your turn and you have 6 moving pieces left?Or have they already reset the game and corrected the bug?

anyway this bug needs sorted.I'm gonna drop Fencer a message and see if he can give us some satisfaction

*edit* to say your brackets around the bug link have disabled it,leave a space between bracket and link and it will re-enable

Dark Prince: I think you need to recheck the move numbers there mate.There was an occasion AFTER the rule break where his 5 did stay unmoved in the corner next to his HQ

*edit* you are partially right,there was another rule break when he had 2 pieces left that I didn't even notice.Go back further tho to when he had 3 pieces

as to why I let him take my sab
I was finished with it.I wanted to capture all the mines to get that achievement which I did.3 more to get the MASTER achievement that only aaru has so far---yeah a bit geeky but ya know I love the game

looks like all instances of this reverse move bug are when the player has 5 or less pieces.Fencer indicated in 2005( http://brainking.com/en/ReadBug?bgi=526 ) that it was when the player was down to one piece and it would be fixed HA ...check my game though,opponent had 3 pieces left Open Fast Espionage (grillyx vs. Celticjim)

Sandoz:
on my current game with grillyx which will be over in 2 more moves his 5 general was in the middle of open squares,in fact he was given opportunity to do it again after I pointed out to him what happened.

as for our game-------you definitely could have benefitted from this bug

just happened to me with an opponent moving his piece back to square he just left and I reported the bug.I see the same bug was also reported by pauloaguia back in august 09.Check it out.Whats going on here,this will undoubtedly cause someone to lose/win a game they shouldn't at some point

In fact 4 instances of same bug reported as far back as 2005.Slack job Fencer

SL-Mark:
It's amazing how often our instincts are right with this game,I think so anyway.I rarely lose a piece throwing it into an unknown opponents...........
point in question,just now I pushed 2 recons up onto an opponents line revealing 4 unknowns and 3 of the 4 were exactly what I thought(2 recons and a 4).I had no clue on the 4th but the other 3 pieces gave clues with the movement.no pieces were taken beforehand ...that's my story and I'm stickin to it

Yvet,the poll ends after something like 30 days go by without a vote ....
looks so far like the majority prefer a small fast and quick tourny.Sounds good ta me
I sometimes wonder why there aren't so many more new players picking this game up.Maybe we should think about offering incentives as Nothingness touched on before with the memberships.

Sandoz summed it nicely I thought
"And I consider it a quite logical thing, that a recon reveals every piece until the recon gets killed"
ba boom

5. November 2009, 20:04:41
Celticjim 
Josef said, in paraphrase"...When I hit the link for previouse move, first there's a need to hit it 3 times to show the position as it was before the actual one. More than that, when I come back to the last position - using the link for the next move - I can't make a move, there's no "hand". So I have to hit somewhere on a move in the list of moves, than click the last move on the list"

oh boy that is so annoying and illogical,well said that man

I just assumed everyone knew this,I'm sure others will chime in but it was always something I bore in mind when making moves of that nature for many years now.Even if it is changed now it would be hard for me personally to break the habit of ALWAYS taking the recon first
