I have made an observation since the big tanki overhaul last year when the matchmaking process was installed. It didn't happen immediately, but took some time before players found a way to use that system to their advantage. I suspect that certain players join battles with two accounts simultaneously. They allow a minute or two of game play to occur then decide which team they will focus on winning. That's when I have noticed "dead" tanks. They are there but they don't play. And the opposing team is suddenly much better. Another clue occurs when the game is ended: the winning team all immediately leave the field. It takes a second or two before they remove their "dead" tanks from the losing team. Obviously, this is ruining the game for anyone not involved in this coordinated cheating. I can't /vote anyone because there's no way to know exactly which players are doing it. A search of tanki forums using the search team "cheating" brought me no results. I hope tanki forum mods aren't burying any suspected cheating threads in an attempt to make their game seem truly unbiased... ?
And I truly hope game mods are looking into this, because unfair games will simply drive players away. Any responses at all will be appreciated.
