Remove a player who does not exist anymore from a tournament

Post by iliz sera » 13 October 2019, 16:11

Hello all, I have a question:

Recently I created a tournament in The Builders: Middle Ages: https://boardgamearena.com/tournament?id=35072

Among the players registered to this tournament till now, there is one player - Rakau Kaitiaki - which has deleted his account some days ago. As a result, when the tournament starts, all the games with him will be neutralized and players receive a free victory for that. However, personally I don't like this. It is unfair to leave a spot for a player who does not exist anymore and take away chance to play from one other. Therefore, I want to ask, is there any possible way to remove that player out of this tournament?

In the future, perhaps I think the creator of tournament might have the power to kick out a player from the tournament they created - but with responsible reason, like in my case. This is also my suggestion as well.

Hope to hear a solution as soon as possible. Regards!

P/S: If any moderator of BGA read this topic, I hope that you guys will be aware of this player. I know him - he is from India (most of the times he set his nation as India, sometimes Thailand, UK too, but normally India), he spams the ranking of Solo, Apocalypse Zoo and The Builders: Middle Ages. He often joins tournament then deletes account so that no one can play with him.

As usual that guy comes back with another account, spamming Solo, Apocalypse and The Builders: Middle Ages ranking. He joins my tournament again then getting deactivated soon. Any admin or moderator? Please have a look at top 10 of Solo players and see how many of them have been deactivated/blocked?

If each account is verified by an email address, then it could be possible to block the email address from making new accounts after being banned.
