The game incentivizes players to lie, cheat, or backstab other players to get ahead.
"You can organize to make tourneys manageable. But you could also be sneaky and lie. Leaving factions is also a way to lie. Cheating has been a trouble issue since this game began."
"Some popular games on the platform (such as Murder Mystery) do indeed encourage this sort of behaviour. There are many others however that don't really fit into that category."
"Because of the way the payout work for top ranks in the leaderboards there is an incentive to make alliances and deals with people to ensure your rank. People outside of the alliance are unfairly targeted. It's possible to snipe people at their payout time by waiting to attack them until right at the end. This isn't very fair."
