Title: Suspicious Scores and Inappropriate Names
Post by: virgilw on September 02, 2014, 10:14:05 am
If you see a score on a map and are certain it isn't possible, report it by posting to this topic.  Include the map name or ID, the score poster name, and the score.  Basically, make sure I can easily find the score in question.  Note that sometimes impossible looking scores are in fact possible, so consider other scores on the same map for comparison. 

Additionally, if you see a name on a high score chart that is not appropriate, report it here as well.  I clean them up every now and then, but having specific examples always helps and spurs me into action.

What kind of names are considered "innapropriate"? The usual bad words? Is there a guide or anything I can consult anywhere?

Consult your inner moral compass. If it offends you, report it, if it does not offend you, don't report it. Don't go and look for things to report. Be still and things will come to you.

I wouldn't mind seeing "twatface" bumped off of S100_122 Micdenter, but they're at place 241, so it's a matter of time.

There's a mess of suspicious scores in the early areas of the Prospector zone, like the five <45s times on S100_0 Aigues-Mortes, belonging to Ed C**ter, Zen, MDomero, Lockhead, and KoRax.

Thank you for taking time to delete scores that are clearly cheats.  It does take away a significant amount of fun to have scores listed that are obviously cheats, and it's even worse when you're unsure if a score is a cheat or an indication of a great result that you want to spend some time to try and figure out how to beat.  So I truly appreciate you taking them down.

The following are cheats:

Luna:  Tormented Space s200_102:  Razruck: 0:28.3
Zen :  Tormented Space:S2300_33:  Tillyloneorm: 0:32.5
Ed C**ter  :  Tormented Space:S2300_33:Tillyloneorm:  3:28.5. 
Creepa' :  Tormented Space:S2300_175:Stancororm: 0:31.5

However, I notice that Luna, Zen, Ed C**ter, Creepa' and others are frequently reported.  And I notice in playing that they each have posted dozens (if not hundreds of high scores) that are obviously fraudulent.  Some cheaters even compete with each other to post lower-timed fraudulent high scores. (e.g. Tormented Space:S2300_175:Stancororm).  Would it be possible to systematically delete all Zen high scores?  Presuming that Zen is done with his 30 second graffiti spree on the high score lists, it would be easiest to remove all of them (the cheats, the suspicious, and any legitimate ones if he ever did post one) all in one fell swoop.

I like your suggestion of sweeping all scores for repeat offenders like Zen & Ed C**ter.  Not sure if it's practical, but I like the thought.

Even the early planets have seemingly impossible scores; i.e., Arc Eternal (Abitus - Far York) has 9 scores under 2 minutes. If it's possible to generate enough energy to power 3 nullifiers and keep the creeper low enough to place them, I don't see how. Some of the same players show up in Abitus - Starsync with 9 scores under 2 minutes; again, I don't see how it's possible. Seems like there was a previous situation where we asked players with extremely low times to post videos of their processes, but maybe that was in a tournament situation.

Anyway, I agree it's a good thing to try to eliminate these apparent cheats, and if there are some ways I don't see to create really short times, I'd like to see some of them.

The cheating scores are probably set by using a packet-sniffer to record the posting transaction, and then to replay it after modifying the time.  Nowadays there are free tools and tutorials that do this, making it nearly trivial to post fake scores.  (there are other threads that discuss this, and you can read an example here:  https://blog.netspi.com/hacking-high-scores-in-ios-gamecenter/ or here https://mitmproxy.org/doc/tutorials/gamecenter.html).

But this thread it to report cheaters (of which there are plenty).  Unfortunately, it's difficult to be 100% sure that someone is cheating without a lot of effort.

I'm convinced that "Ed Hunter" and "Ed C**ter" post almost nothing but cheat times, and are probably the same person.  Times like: 

Are clearly cheats (since you can't even build and charge an emitter in under 45 seconds).

But other ones, like (rwx:  Prospector Zone: S100_124: Auchcorpka: 1:15.1) are harder to makes sense of.  When I first tried that map, it took me over 2 minutes to finish and I thought rwx must be a cheater.  But it's hard to tell because it's not 45.7 seconds.  So I came back to it after getting better at the game and played it again and got 1:15.6.  So I figured out rwx is just really good, and I can use his times to gauge how fast a map can be done.

I want to thank Virgil for deleting some cheat scores.  It was very much appreciated!! 

It's very difficult for anyone to validate that the scores are not possible, so perhaps we can work together to create a list of scores that need deleting and that everyone agrees are 99% cheats.  I'll post a separate thread later to see if anyone wants to work to do that, or has a good way to maintain and vet such a list.

Ditto on the thanks to Virgil.  It might just be a consequence of wandering around at the fringes of known space, but it has been a few weeks since I have come across any indisputable cheaters.

I would not be surprised if Ed means to give offense with his name, but my particular complaint with him is that he is a frequent offender with impossible scores.  He is one of the high profile graffiti artists that Tex suggested scrubbing earlier in this thread (cf Reply #20 from 15 Dec 2014).
The 5 minute score listed in my previous post is conceivably legitimate, but I think it is safe to assume it is a cheat since it has Ed's name beside it.

[Update]  I just realized I entered the wrong system under my complaint against Ed ... your comment makes more sense to me now that I realize my mistake.

There's still custom maps with shorter than normal nullifier build times, maps that don't even need a nullifier to be won, maps like Brain, which use CRPL, maps that use the old totem system... if you just deleted all the scores with a time under the bare limit of the time it takes to build and fire a nullifier, you would probably cut off a lot of real scores too.

It's actually not a bad idea. It can be selectively applied to the controlled sectors of the game. I'll mention it to Virgil. :)

Edit: We looked, and while it's possible, the number of scores that would be wiped this way is actually very small. And it closes some loophole we use to do detect some things...

The impossible scores can be useful for spotting patterns.  If player X has impossible scores on easy Prospector sites, then his incredible (but maybe possible?) scores on more challenging maps can be safely discarded -- if you filter out just the impossible scores then you lose the context that establishes X as a hack.

I prefer the approach Tex suggested back in December of scrubbing ALL entries for established hacks.  But even that has issues ... if it is as easy to spoof a name as it is to spoof a score then the hacks would likely respond by hiding behind the names of legit players.

ok asbe, i hear ya.    there are a some special maps.  Maybe it can be used as an indicator for further investigation not formula to delete scores... so....

RESULTS OF TIME TO BUILD NULLIFIER EXPERIMENT

27 Seconds to build nullifier
41 Seconds to build and fire nullifier

Only 4 seconds to build a nullifier on build speed 100. (if the map started on that full upgrade)



There i done my bit for the cause




(as with everything in science this experiment needs to be confirmed by other experiments to establish the consensus view on nullifier build times. chow)

The tier-0 building speed is one packet per sixteen frames, or 1.875 E/s.  The charging speed is one packet per nine frames, or 3.333 E/s.  A Nullifier takes 50 energy to build, 50 energy to charge, and 2 seconds to fully discharge.  A Command Node takes 3 seconds to land.  Conclusion: the minimum possible time for Inceptus: Tempus is 3 + (50 / 1.875) + (50 / 3.333) + 2 seconds, or 46.667s total.

There are four times on Inceptus: Tempus which are below this minimum possible time.  I don't know if they were possible at some point in the past, but they're very definitely not possible now.

I have seen some; many - more or lees the same names with the same setting. -> an inhibitor ~0:46 where ever 'possible' or not w/o cheating

so how about a NSA approach:  select all maps and 1st, 2nd and 3d and there  names ... make a cluster and bingo

I am a "bad" player, I am interested in playing and getting my brain free for the next hours of work; I in principle dont mind cheaters, but it starts to get annoying  if there are always the same names solving it in ~46'' ...

I am not a fast player; so i don't mind if I am not one of the top ten (or 100) - just cheating is not fair ...

Note: 45.7 is a bit of a magical number. Unless a map uses CRPL or custom unit costs, (or a few other rare things) this is the best time possible. Scores of ~46 seconds are only suspicious if there are: More than one emitter greatly spaced and no inhibitor; no syphon and only one Command node may be built; the creeper is too deep and spreads too quickly.

I would assume that the following first place scores are also cheats based on the player's history.

S100_199 : Polcorpis
savagenights       7:14.6

S100_199 : Sunap
savagenights       5:01.5


For added amusement, Tex and wiseage (a couple of players who regularly show up at the top of boards with what appear to be legit scores) both bested savagenights at S100_199 Dunvasseian.  Working on the assumption that savagenights was hacking for all his scores in this system, it looks like he wasn't competent enough to consistently beat good players even with his hacks active.

The tier-0 building speed is one packet per sixteen frames, or 1.875 E/s.  The charging speed is one packet per nine frames, or 3.333 E/s.  A Nullifier takes 50 energy to build, 50 energy to charge, and 2 seconds to fully discharge.  A Command Node takes 3 seconds to land.  Conclusion: the minimum possible time for Inceptus: Tempus is 3 + (50 / 1.875) + (50 / 3.333) + 2 seconds, or 46.667s total.

There are four times on Inceptus: Tempus which are below this minimum possible time.  I don't know if they were possible at some point in the past, but they're very definitely not possible now.

Currently there are 18, the lowest being 7 seconds.

Are sub-45s times possible on any map? Even the first one, I can't figure out how to get a Nullifier built and charged in less than a minute.

I just want to say I think this game is Awsome and even more Awsome that you guys r trying to sort the cheaters from the players, I think I may have somthing the game seems to miss or the players miss atleast, I hope my guppy adventures will open up some fresh ideas , how ever some of the maps I've already posted have taken me best part of 3 days to make it hurts a little to see a stupid scores of just a few mins to complete after all that time planning, I stopped playing a famous game that's been going for several years on the PlayStation come other devices, cost me best part of 100 pound to go online to be cheated out of my points. Awsome job guys keep up good work I know you guys find it hard to cope with all the text traffic and your game making too please everyone just wanted to spur you guys on and let you know you are appreciated:-)

46 seconds is the fastest, any faster on a non-colonial space map is cheating (maybe fastest is 42, definitely no faster)
