It has been reported/confirmed that an unapproved tool is being used to enable map functionality that was intended to be unavailable for this round.
I am working on a fix to address this, but in the meantime we should discuss the impact on the round.
For context, using unapproved tools/hacks is against our rules, specifically because it provides an unfair advantage over players that don’t know about it. From The Imperial Conflict Rulebook:
We do allow most tools and are generally pretty lax about this, but we require that players share the tools openly. If they don’t, that is considered cheating.
What do we want to do?
I would normally consult with Staff, but our only moderator is playing in this galaxy, which presents a conflict of interest.
So it’s up to the players:
- Scrap and restart the round
- Keep the round open, but remove the player who created and shared the exploit
- Keep the round open, and do not remove anybody
No matter what we pick, I will be asking the player to share his tool and instructions publicly.
