Because the world record for an EASY sudoku is 1:38, and people here are solving them in 17 seconds, it???s clearly cheating.

Now with the solution right in front of me I could barely fill out all the vacant squares fast enough to break the one and half minute mark (1:29) and yet there were about eight scores below the two minute mark (fastest was 1:06). Now given there are several players consistently/repeatedly scoring extremely low times that are defying what most could even blindly type in (ie, not even allowing any time for mental calculations)... we all have those greased lightening moments but almost daily?? The likelihood that a bunch of savants are consistently pegging the boards is statistically so low as to be damned near impossible.


well, I don't cheat, and I can finish Extreme somewhere around 1:30-40 pretty much at least once a day.. best times under 1:20..
I can't imagine to do it in 0:30 as some times are..

There is cheating going on. Just look at the extreme times. There's someone that finished theirs in 16 seconds. Unless they are the flash that's physically impossible.

Maybe some people are cheating, but honestly I think most people accusing others of cheating just have a hard time accepting that someone else is that good. But some people are that good. I don't have any mind-blowing records, but I just started doing extreme puzzles after feeling like I had pretty much mastered the hard level. Within a few weeks, I've gone from 6-8 minutes per puzzle to 3-4, with a record of 2:15 (just hit it today, with a previous record of 2:30). I don't see myself as a remarkable person, so someone who is really smart and adept at Sudoku could reasonably get <1 minute records after some time. It's a matter of figuring out the puzzle pattern and improving your mental flexibility to see the patterns faster and faster every game.

People cheat, one way or another. Either they are bored with something or find the idea exciting.

Personal best times:
Easy 0:38
Medium 0:56
Hard 1:25
Extreme 1:39

You know, since there's no prizes given for the competitions and nothing earned other than bragging rights by playing *any* board this game offers, why does it even MATTER if someone 'cheats'?? Who *cares*?

Because it happens in all games, without exception. If someone plays better than you, then he uses cheats, and if worse, it means noob.
