The fall of the Gods

Todd Rogers first, and Billy Mitchell then.....one never did the claimed score, the other cheated in a ridiculous way.....looks like we'd regret PAC...at least, he used to cheat in a more talented way.... :roll:
What do you guys, with much deeper knowledge in the arcades than me, think about the matter, and on TG ...?!?

I've read a lot about these, actually just from private messages/chats with people interested about the facts... tbh, I'm not really sure I fully understood everything in detail, and a true topic put under discussion here is about TG's way of authentication of scores, which I personally poorly know - so I can't really express myself there.

One sure thing I'd like to disagree with, there's no god falling because the players involved were not gods in the first place. Nobody would deserve that title, there's monstrous capabilities in certain players but everyone's a human and, while we hope there's always fairness where there's potential, we can't be too much surprised if we discover tricks. It's in human nature, it can come from everyone.

I appreciate all these efforts made to figure out the truth, they are always welcome. I'm not exempted from being cynic and think how many similar cases could pop up in future :/
