Electronic sanctions ?
 
 
Hale:
Major, I just get our security agency on the phone, they say that several participant are using up-to 15 different IPs per day !  What are your orders? Should we ask the NSA to stop them?
 
Deakins:
Relax Captain, this is just a game, no need to worry. The soldiers just want to be the first in the Hall of Fame. Still, they have to understand that they’ll have to wait for Episode-2 to test their weapons of mass destruction (aka oracle attack). Episode-1 is for light weapons only.
 
Hale:
Yet, this is quite unfair for competitors who cannot change their IP address. Some have access to many computers in their lab, with different IP addresses.
Others go home to play with BOWS2 with their own internet provider access when they reach the limit with their lab IP address, and some others cannot change their IP address and have to wait for the next day. This is not fair.
 
Deakins :
Are you spying them?
 
Hale:
Yes! I know anything: who is doing what and when. I know their IP adresses by heart, their Internet provider, who is playing with BOWS2 until the end of the night, who wakes up early in the morning.... just everything.
 
Deakins:  
A real Big Brother!  Anyway, if malicious users don’t stop, we’ll find a way to make them understand, believe me! I know several ways to cut their bowstrings!
 
Hale:  
Ok Major, I cancel my orders to the NSA.
