List of "fair" players
Feb 22, 2016 5:56 PM
While the majority of Four in a Row players may be runners (players that will not play you a consecutive even number of games if they start the first game as red), I thought it might be helpful to know which players are not runners. Of course, this is only my (aka Addie and Manerva's) experience, but below is a list in case you like to avoid runners:
1) Oewan: maybe the nicest guy on here, he will also help you improve your game by telling you where your red goes wrong.
2) Melanie_Haters: also a great player to play against if you want to improve your red as he has the best blue I have seen. He is also unbreakable.
You will notice that none of the above players are ranked in the top 10. Yes, it is very hard to amass a lot of points and NOT be a runner. Alexander is a great player, and runs the runners, which is another way to try to play fair. I am only in the top 10 because I frequently play inexperienced players with this nick.
I am sure there are other players that don't run.
On the other side of the spectrum are players that always run, such as RUNcy Roodle.
On a separate note, I miss the sound effect feature when you would hear footsteps when someone would leave in the middle of a game. It was gratifying to here that sound when a runner would leave in the middle of a game when you have broken them.
