Free tech bug
« on: August 31, 2009, 12:00:02 PM »
There is a bug, recently discovered (or at least made public); that allows you to get multiple free techs from Oracle and liberialism.

This is something to be considered seriously. Oracle should be banned in all ancient games IMO and liberialism is questionable as well (alphabet exists by that time so it can be checked I guess).

This won’t be a huge problem in Ladder teamers and only a small problem in CTONs as it’s fairly easily detected, but only by those that know how score works.

But Open ‘non-teamers’- will be totally ruined – heck, even I’m about to jump into a ‘FFA Blazing’ just too see everyone’s reaction when I show up with riffles on turn 50.  ;D

It´s been known now for some time, but since it´s really difficult to discover, not making it too public so far was probably a good idea. I haven´t seen anyone try to use it and it´s pretty easily detected if - still not too great it´s out there.

I thought this bug was discovered and fixed several patches ago.... pff guess it either never was, or someone found a new way to do it, idk.

banning Lib in OCC is a bit extreme. A save can be taken and later examined to see if someone cheated...if yes it could be send to admins and person can get lifetime ban?

That would stop people from using this cheat IMO.

Yes people are certainly risking a ban, for using this bug to cheat.  So anyone hoping to gain some skill points by using this, should take this into consideration, and weight the risk of being banned for life.
