My hope is if the devs punish “false reports” then what they mean by false is you don’t really have a reason to make the report. to me, your best defense is laying out your case each time.
“The player has a lot of points!” isn’t a good enough case, though. It needs more data. Some people just like to show off, so it’s worth doing some calculations to figure out if it’s even possible. How many games would they have had to play? If you assume 1-2 minutes per game, how many hours is that? If it’s more than about 10, things get suspicious, but keep in mind for stunts people can play 14+ hours daily.
Sadly the devs have a very strong “we don’t discuss bannings” policy so it’s hard to get feedback. It’s possible a poster above is exaggerating something about the people they have reported. Or, it’s possible the devs simply didn’t look into it. We don’t know because we don’t have all the information.
The bad advice here is “make a thread if you think there’s cheating”. You really shouldn’t. The forums have a pretty strict callout policy so you risk some form of discipline. But my opinion is you should be able to ask, “How do you do this without cheating?” I mean, maybe you want that many leaderboard points for yourself, right? And if nobody can come up with how a human pulls off the feat… you sort of accomplish the same goal, right?
The only way we can confirm or deny a perception the devs don’t do a lot is to talk about suspected cheaters. Unfortunately, “talk about cheaters” is against the rules.
