~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~HACKER'S GAME~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On April 16th, at 5:00 PM, Adam Kesura's League account was compromised. The hacker had changed his password (As Adam used the same password for both his email and League accounts) However, they were unable to change the password of the email itself. At the time, he was at work as an electrician in California, on top of a rather nasty telephone pole, while his co-worker sat in the truck below, fiddling with his laptop over the internet.



He has a daughter as well - Nanase Kesura, age eight, whom had been playing on the computer since getting home at 3:00 PM. At some point, the girl was allowed to play bot matches on her father's account, after a rather intriguing altercation during an attempt to create one of her own. She is actually quite skilled, and unless you either had prior knowledge or were using voice chat, it is impossible to tell the difference between the two.



And then, we have Mark and Timothy Farken - a group of twins from Texas who both play League. They use a single account, a tradition from the days when they shared an email account, and often play pranks on their friends by getting them to guess which twin is playing right now. At 5:45 PM, the Farken group was brought into a premade match with the compromised account through a common friend. It is unknown which twin was on their account at the time. The hacker's IP has proved impossible to trace, though low latency likely means they were somewhere in North America.



Additionally, we have Katarina Frey, 34 years old, who lives in Vancouver, who from 4 to 5:30 PM, was in a vegetarian campaign of some sort involving McDonalds. Her family is generally anti-technology, and although it has been getting better, outside of League, she has a very limited level of computer knowledge.



And then, we have the man from China. I don't know Chinese, so let's call him 'Arnold'. Arnold is one of the top students at Asiraci Academy, and generally has the respect of both teachers and peers. From 3PM to 6PM (Corresponding to 6-9AM in Chinese time)Arnold was in the school's computer lab. The computers at Arnold's school run on a closed inner network, and therefore cannot connect to the internet as a whole.



Lastly, we have RoTaRy, the genius programmer from Australia. Addicted to Mountain Dew, often staying up into the depths of the night to finish some new shiny code. Having finished a commission of a physics system designed for jiggle physics (The commissioner's identity is not relevant to the case) around 9:30 AM (4:30 PM at the victim's time) He would have been too tired to do anything involving complex programming.



~~~

The object of the game is to identify the culprit(s), and how they did it.


Anything in red is known as Red Truth. It is an absolute, and cannot be denied. Only the Game Master can use it.


Anything in blue is classified as Blue Truth. Blue Truth is used to propose a solution that still fits within the confines of the Red Truth. The Game Master must put forth a Red Truth that defeats a Blue Truth within 24 hours of its posting, or he is defeated. Anybody can put forth Blue Truth, with the exception of the Game Master.



The Game Master retains the right to change the truth, so long as it does not contradict any Red Truths put forth by him prior. When the clock strikes midnight on the final day (Friday, the 18th) No more blue truths can be made. The Game Master must provide a solution 12 hours from then, that does not contradict any of the Red Truths. If he cannot, he is defeated.




No more than nine people are related to this crime.


Now then. Let the game begin.

~~~

RED TRUTHS

No more than nine people are related to this crime.

The hacker was unable to change the password to Adam's email.

It is impossible to tell the difference between Adam and his daughter over League, unless you had either prior knowledge or voice chat.

The hacker's IP is impossible to trace.

Katarina Frey's computer knowledge is very limited outside of League.

From 3 to 6 PM, Arnold was in the school's computer lab.

The computers at Asiraci academy run on a closed network.

At 4:30 PM, RoTaRy was too tired to do anything involving complex programming.


~~



One of the nine suspects are directly responsible for the compromise of Adam's account. This does not exclude the possibility of multiple suspects.

TL;DR
=======================

Extraterrestrial comes and show them how to solve everything, i can't tell you how the extraterrestrial did it, because its extraterrestrial thing. Like extraterrestrial thing is incomprehensible even if i tell you you wouldn't understand

Regrettably, it's all information important to the game. These kinds of logic puzzles can get complex.

If it helps, the text in red is higher priority than everything else.

Well due to low latency you can remove the australian, because auzy's have crappy internet.

So far there are 8 people.
Father - Innocent (no access)
Daughter - Innocent (was the one hacked)
Father's Work Teammate - Suspect (had access to a laptop and possibly wifi)
Australian - Innocent (latency)
China Dude - Innocent (Closed Network also latency would have been an issue)
Frey - (unlikely to have had knowledge, but could have been a jump, unlikely to have had access)
Twins - (Unknown age could have been carriers)

so far we have 8 of the 9 people involved, my suspicion would be that the Work Colleague could have possibly carried a virus thus infecting the system. This would give us are 9th member with the work colleague being the carrier due to in all likely hoods the use of an unprotected wifi.
