  • 28-Sep-2012 -Some players have been farming Elo points by beating the computer using the same 16 moves over and over again. Although generally I like to allow people to play in whatever manner they like, some higher rated players are complaining that it is not fair to the people that have been playing fairly. Today’s patch will hopefully solve this issue by setting a limit of how many Elo points you can gain from the compute opponents. From now on players rated 1800+ will no longer be able to gain or lose Elo from computer opponents. You can still beat-up the computer until 1800 if you find it fun, however to make it to the top ranks you will need to play real human opponents.
