Reviewing your own games

i was in the unreal discord the other day and a guy posted a link to his game on the google play store, i went on and saw multiple reviews from what is obviously the dev himself and called him out and i got an infraction for it and everybody defended the guy.

what does everyone here think about reviewing your own games giving them 5 stars to sell more copies?

isnt that pretty much scamming people?

If someone downloads an app that had high ratings, and didn’t like it, they could give it the 1 star it deserves. A few ratings from the developer signing into their various accounts probably won’t make much of a difference long-term.
