Heated Bread Posted February 11, 2014 Share Posted February 11, 2014 Apologies if this is in the wrong section. I couldn't quite figure out where it should go. So I was just on the Harpoon Gaming trade server and one of the mods/admins/whatever there would not shut up about asking if anyone wanted to play tic tac toe with him for item wagers (the map has a built-in tic tac toe board in the donor lounge). So then we got into a conversation about how that game is so simple that if you go first, you can always either win or tie the game. Even if you go 2nd, as long as you play right, you can always at least force a tie. His only counter-argument was that he'd won a ton of stuff doing it. Then it dawned on me: that was the whole point. Since tic tac toe is a very simple game to master, he can always tie at the very worst. In other words, he knew there was never any risk of him losing. Guaranteed. Wikipedia talks all about it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tic_tac_toe So my question is would that be considered scamming? The Harpoon Gaming community's defining characteristic is that they supposedly have zero tolerance for sharking and scamming. For such a community, this seems very questionable. Even if you wouldn't call it an outright scam, what are your thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
