    Well for one the custom flat maps, i feel it's a huge advantage to alot of players who do have it and a disadvantage to those who don't it's obvious alot of people use flat maps to try and get more xp as opposed to those who took more effort into getting xp. I feel perhaps custom maps should give half xp than normal maps so people don't go abusing it. And there is another tactic for getting xp fast but that one i wont say here, i find it disgusting to even mention it.

    To fix those "illegitimate" ways of earning XP, this has to be done:
    • Half the XP if playing on custom maps
    • Maximum of one account logged in at once per IP
    • Maximum of one account logged in at once per browser
    • Some more security stuff I don't remember right now but had in mind yesterday
    Even though the IP one and also the browser one can be bypassed, it would atleast be something. I also suspect the use of bots, even though I don't exactly know how that works. Anyways, this should be added to prevent the use of bots:
    • Random captchas every 15 - 45 minutes (maybe with a small reward)
    • A limitation on how much XP you can earn per day or per twelve hours
    And thinking about some more ways to make the game fair, you could also add:
    • A confirmation link which is going to be sent to the registered E-Mail Address. If the registrant of the account does not click the link, access to some features should be blocked. (No chat, no friendlist, progress won't be saved)
    I think that all these points would make the game much more better and fair.

    1- Half the XP if playing on custom maps : seems not fair for ppl who bought the custom maps for good reasons ( i don't have it btw).
    2- Maximum of one account logged in at once per IP : Geeks will use proxy to change IP ( some games ban ppl who use proxies ).
    3- Maximum account logged in per browser : Idk how Kyle can do that.
    4- Random captchas : i really hate captchas.
    5- A limitaion on how much XP you can earn per day or twelve hours : thats really the most brilliant idea i've heard and i think that's really the best solution.

    Oh, ok, now I get it.

    I do use flat map and I do think it's a map which allows you to gain more xp than "normal" maps but I don't believe it is something to be related under "questionable tactics", anyway I understand the point.

    I read between the lines that someone uses to have a double account and to play against him in order to get more xp. Actually this is a questionable tactic and I think Shes suggestions are useful.

    if you don't like that ... DON'T DO IT !!
    if you have any criticism for that ... KEEP IT TO YOUR SELF
    if you dislike flatmapPlayers ... THEY DON'T CARE
    all these posts are useless .

    Flat custom maps are unfair not everyone has access to use them and they give more xp that's why, regardless if you paid for them they still give an uneeded advantage, to make it right it should be fair that they give half the xp so they aren't abused, besides the point of them is to be fun and creative to play on not for hoarding xp.

    Flat maps definitely give more xp, but I do not consider it to be cheating and they are a lot less fun to play.

    Retard is an offensive word. Use it wisely, for example, right now, Retard.
