Solution to reduce cheating at indoor games

Solution to reduce cheating at indoor games

Hi all,

I had dinner with a friend today and the issue about cheating came up again.
It seemed to have ruined the day of a lot of honest players.
So I would like to propose the following for indoor CQB games.

Make every player wear a racing bib with unique number

racing bibs?
http://zombiesurvivaldash.com/race-bibs-and-chips/

- What track athletes were during events/competition
eg: bibnumbers.com
- they can be plates or very big stickers
- should be able to uniquely identify players during event
- mandatory to wear during game - if taken off, player is ejected from game

Logistics suggestion:
* indoor game organizers purchase these bibs in bulk
* every player pays an additional $1-2 to cover expense.

By wearing this numbers during a game, if will be very easy to identify
a cheater. A player who identifies a victim does not even need to confront the individual. He just forwards the # of the player to the organizer.

Operation:
Organizer keeps counts of complains.
We are all humans, so we can make mistakes.
As a result, submitted complaints for player "36" won't trigger anything
unless there are 2 or 3 (set by organizer).
If player "36" has multiple complaints from other players in a short
period of time, organizer will stop game and issue warning.
If player 36 receives another complaint, he will be booted off.
Player 36 can't even argue back to an individual, because there are 3
who filed a complaint

Advantages:
* easy to identify players during the game
* wearing numbers will make players more self conscious, and
hopefully adhere to the rules more

Disadvantages:
* you might not look too cool with numbers on front and back
But again, I personally don't care about looks.
I rather play an honest game.


Another suggestion:

Can we have CQB games where people don't wear vest or anything major
equipment on their chest? I would not mind games where players are wearing 1 T shirt only. Sometimes BB bounces off the rig, and target
does not feel anything (not meaning to cheat).

At Xtreme Tactics in Winnipeg every player is issued a velcro patch number that has to be worn somewhere. Not exactly a racing bib, but it's been proven effective if not just useful.

Fire for effect.

If that fails, try again!

Get your buddies in on the fun.

Why need a number, if you can see who you're shooting then you should be able to identify him and tell the Admin.

If you aren't sure what he/she looks like then you probably aren't hitting them.

If we start wearing those, why don't we just wear these while we're at it...

if you are 100% right about them not calling hits......see that thing by your thumb thats pointing to semi.....turn that to full auto....then see how long it takes them to call the hit or just know who you are playing with so you wont have to deal id say 90% of the time ive seen someone not call a hit...myself included they or myself just didnt feel it...again thats why you shoot a few extra just in case

We could also have indoor games with mandatory 500 FPS minimum, I'm sure that would make cheating a bit harder.

Hey I do wear that some times. it's comfy for someone who plays speedball

But yeah I don't agree with the number idea you should be able to easily identify the person you are shooting at.

also if this was speedball yall would be complaining about cheating alot more.

IMO not calling hits seriously wrecks games -no question- So develop a group of players who you know call their hits and rent venues and have games by invitation only (no walk ons) The last 5 games that i have played at were exactly this and honourable and fun. Before that i almost quit airsoft.
