Since how long do we have scoring procedure on internet? A few decades. Is scoring a huge and reccurent problem? Not really, problems arose sometimes which induced a call to moderation.
Now we get the help of AI. Nice but Let’s keep it as a powerful help, called on request then. Because It’s powerful, the scoring should become definitive, under the control of an admin because the AI is still not perfectly working. In case of disagreement, not for replacing the well working side of the scoring way used since long ago (mark yourself boundaries and prisoners)
This last game scoring is interesting
If both pass, mark boundary and prisoners then a standard light algorithm give the result.
If one player continue play let see what happen.
If both disagree, then one can call moderation as now. Game result is given by AI but stay hidden ‘under process’ msg until checked by admin. (Clocks frozen too ofc). Final decision given by admin (with AI help) and definitive.
That’s not a problem related to AI but to the call for moderation itself which existed before AI.
Calling for a mod before the end of the game (scoring done) breaks the rule of no external help but is legal as an exception.
For not being too intrusive, should it be definitive decision under admin control called by disagreement between players?
Offering the option to continue the game provide opportunities for unfairness and eager but that could remain a choice of decision by the admin maybe afterall, with the other alternative to cancel the game.
It could be interesting to have the opportunity for the admin to ask to resume the game without having the analysis from the scoring tool given to the players. In that case the boundary/prisoners/territories marking had to be made at 100% by the players without any help.
