SDS - Nothing like proving your own incompetence

SDS

So, I'm currently in a game with a player who's been undertaking some suspicious activity which led me to believe he was trying to intentionally freeze the game. In addition to this, they've also paused the game no less than 20 times. Eventually, while in the top of the 9th with two outs, the game went into a freeze-off (I'm winning 7-1).

I quickly reported the incident to SDS and have some recorded videos. SDS's response was that they won't do anything to influence the outcome of the game. Ironically, not doing anything will influence the outcome of the game

Out of the horse's mouth: Endure the freeze-off, don't enjoy the main purpose of how we designed our game, and on top of that - we won't even look into a player that has likely done this before and will do likely do it again.

He could have come back and won if the game hadn't frozen though. How long are you going to wait it out?

I’m calling BS on this, not because I don’t believe you’re in a freeze-off with someone who should quit, but because you say that SDS responded right away.

I one up your bs alt text

SDS

Yeah absolutely SDS is not going to respond immediately to this. And honestly who would expect them to care about this. They made a game it’s not thier job to investigate your paranoid delusions about guys trying to intentionally freeze a game. If you quit and lose the game what’s the big deal anyways do you pay your rent or put food in your mouth with your RS ranking?

So, just keep rewarding the people that do this? Why even have a point system at that rate?

Are people actually purposely freezing the game in RS? What is the reward for them to do that? they have to endure a freeze off too just to what add 20 points to their rating ? It just doesn’t make sense to me , it seems more plausible that the game simply freezes due to poor connection or whatever and then a freeze of happens when two clowns take themselves way to seriously and both decide to sacrifice their time actually playing to prove a Point that literally nobody else cares about but them

SDS

I played a guy the other day I suspected of cheating. As soon as the game started he paused for about a minute and when he unpaused the connection was horrific. Using pinpoint I walked the first two batters because there was zero way to to control the timing. I switched to pulse pitching, which I only used a few times last year in offline to change things up, and the connection fixed itself. After the inning I was able to switch back to pinpoint and the connection was normal. We ended up playing an enjoyable full competitive game (which he won btw). My point is that first impressions aren't always correct and we shouldn't assume that we are being cheated all the time.

So in revving what is stated here does not read as "SDS won't do anything to influence the outcome"

SDS stated that they won't add wins or xp and will investigate the situation which makes perfect sense. Not sure what you want here cause SDS has to take time to investigate but as well SDS has no obligation to tell you the outcome of the investigation from a business's stand point but as well from a privacy standpoint as they can't disclose action taken against a customer to another customer.

This.

There is no way to know, even if the game is in a freeze off if it was random or whether someone caused it. So they aren't going to take sides.

They said that they would investigate the user and take action if needed. I assume that means going through their history and seeing if it is pattern. And as mentioned, even if they take action and ban the user then they will never tell you that the action was taken.

Also, I looked at your history and I don't see any 7-1 wins or losses so what was the outcome? Are you still in a freeze off.

Correct, we're on hour 24

At this point, I'm more than content playing Madden, 2k, etc. on my other consoles for weeks. I'm out hitting him 16-3 at this point and there's simply no way they deserve to win this game

Well, good luck then. No win would be so important to me to tie up my PS5 for 24 hours, unable to play other games on it.
