Your so wrong.   He is not vilified, because he got away with it.   And after worlds and few months go by people will forget his name.         I feel sorry for this cheaters friends he plays X-wing with,  he cheats them all the time and gets away with it.    Lets face it when you are cheating at a game about flying plastic space ships, you are really a loser for sure.

People wont forget his name if he wins though as he gets to make a card, have interviews and his name will be on the list of winners for good

False alternative.

It can be about both those things, also if cheating is problem I would prefer it to take spotlight till the problem will get solved.

Also for his opponent fact that he will be villified is not so good because he still suffered defeat.

Look at the top posts on every x wing forum and group right now. Imagine you're a fairly new player excited about World's. Are you excited by what you see?

 

Cheating is rare and no amount of yammering will "solve" it. Yammering on about it also won't change FFG's decision.

Disagree.  Yammering fixes a lot of things.

It apparently was changed from just a warning to a round 4 loss + a warning, so it's possible yammering DID make a difference. Though they also could have just changed their minds

In other words: chose hypocrisy route, hype game despite glaring cheating problem because some hypotetical new player might be discouraged from starting game? Are you serious?

So someone with a 3-0 score got a present and the guy that lost due to the cheat is still ******. 

 

Way to go, FFG :lol:

His round 4 opponent can have a nice cold drink and a sit down and the round 3 one who got cheated out of his game gets nowt

I am starting to think that maybe they decided that changing scores would result in totally different pairings and they don't know how to undone established ones. Thus judged that cheater will get punished in round 4.

so they've never considered this might happen or had any contingency if it did?

Can everyone please back off from the judges a bit? They do have a massive tournament to run, making calls on blurry stream material takes a lot of checking. They took their time to evaluate the evidence and ultimately came to the right conclusion. This is how it should work!

I'm sure the guy that just got a bye at 3-0 is happy about this decision...

Only a DQ and a ban is an acceptable outcome. Blatant cheating needs to be severely punished when there is this amount of evidence. It undermines the whole game and is a slap in the face of people who follow the rules?

Losing a match... just cheat worst thing that happens is you still lose a match.
