The time I cheated

So despite for the most part being proud of doing things by the book i did in fact cheat once -- dont get excited, it wasnt a tg record, it was a magic tournament (magic the gathering card game) and as its my only expereince cheating i think of it alot when trying to understand cheaters.

the prereleases 10-15 years ago i kid you not, more than half the people cheated. To fully explain how i/everyone knew that was the case is its own story, but long story short is, everyone know that alot of people cheated. i wont say "everyone" but yeah it was way more than half. I finally got frustrated after several years of losing to cheaters -- now gratned it was one of those thing where any one person might not have cheated, but the odds of them all having the cards at random, no, i knew not everyone got those cards fairly but i couldnt prove the particular cheaters -- i finally got fed up and cheated too.

we hear all the time "eveyrone else is doing it so i leveld the playing field". sometimes thats just an excuse, sometimes its real. By the way, i got caught after the third time doing it, and so i guess i should say i cheated 3x and got away with it 2x. The more we see of old tg and the corruption i start to wonder if some cheaters wanted to do things the right way but got so frustrated at everyone else cheating that they finally gave in.

now dont get me wrong, i still want them banned, thats the only way to stop the cycle. once you allow it and "eveyrone does it" the problem only spreads. i'm just saying that might explain the mass amounts of it. once you reach critical mass of cheaters who get away with it, everyone otherwise honest people start to get fed up and give in to the temptation as well

    Thread wound up being more about the Cheating than the Magic, but...

    I had a Black and Red deck, mostly 4th edition(I think...LOOONG time ago...).

    The game evolved to the point that it wasn't really fun to me, but you could do all the landwalking you wanted(or whatever...)-if you were gonna beat my wall of fire you pretty much had to cheat.

    :P


    Wish I could remember what all was in it, Ball Lightnings, Carrion Ants, Shivan Dragons...it was pretty nasty.

    Sorry Sexy Lexy, but I don't believe your scores were performed on a legit arcade PCB. I bet it was done on one of them there JROK boards. I don't feel the need to open a dispute, as I kinda like having you around. Your constant trolling is quite endearing. Birds of a feather and all that.
