I love to play fog games because it means I can hide the extent of my power to some players and then form an alliance with players that don't know the full extent of my empire. It also means you can recover from 3 armies remaining without drawing attention to yourself. However when I can I like to reveal the extent of someone else's realm when I feel they are in a strong position and ask for other players to weaken them. Recently in one of my games a player got very annoyed at me for revealing he had the whole of South America on world Expanded in a very early stage of the game. I was accused of not respecting the fog.

However I feel this is perfectly justified to use the chat to expose someones position to bring and alliance against a winning player. I understand that being exposed is annoying but then I think it is part of the game and I have definitely been exposed before. Is this cheating or is this fair play? Discuss

I wouldn't say cheating, but I could see the argument that technically you shouldn't even know how many are playing and who is what color, etc. If this is truly FOG then you discovered something but can't tell anyone because you don't know who is playing.

Usually my rule of tumb is: "guys, watch out, this guy is really strong in south africa" is fine, but "guys, this guy has 127 troops in brazil and 43 in argentinia, watch out" is not very sportive.

I love saying "woah not much on cap there" to someone, then other people check the cap and block themselves in ;)

people can just say that you're lying about what they have to get people to attack them as well

I don't like too much chat at all in fog games. Perhaps a comment direct to one other player such as "@blue I'm not going to attack you there" - but not referring to a specific territory.
I know there are some that like to use the comments to manipulate others. Personally I think it often leads to arguments.
