Sabotaging a game in whatever way for whatever reason is considered a serious offence. Disagreement with your opponents (e.g. suspicion of team play, misplacement) is never a valid reason to sabotage a game. Common methods of sabotage are taking the full turn time each turn or leaving and rejoining a game over and over.
Different people take different amount of time finishing their turns. If you feel your opponent is playing too slow, you can ask him or her to speed things up. This however, is not a guarantee that your opponent will actually play faster. Demanding someone to play faster when he or she can't or doesn't want to is not allowed.
Some people take the ranking so seriously that they decide to register two or more users and letting themselves or close friends win over and over again. However booring this may seem, this does happen. If you have reasonable doubt about a player doing so, please let us know. Luckily we can pretty much confirm if a player has done so.

Many people like to come here and play with one of their friend and one other human in the ranking lobby. We have no problem with this as long as you do this every once in a while and you play enough games with other people. When you play with the same person too often, especially when the same person wins most of the time this will come across as suspicious. On top of that, scoring ranking points aquired by always playing the same opponent doesn't give you a fair ranking picture.
If you insist on playing with your friend over and over, even if you have no bad intentions, please go to the non-ranking lobby to avoid complaints and corrupting the ranking system. Not doing so can cause us to conclude you are cheating the ranking system (see previous paragraph).
When you create or join a new game, please finish it! Unless the game stalls or there's something wrong or you all agree to start over, it is plain rude to quit a game and let the bot continue.
