Can you let us know the name of the team/username so we can check that out? Thanks!

Such process must not be transparent because it is nobody's business how many reports Team X has and whether they have been warned, and because nobody needs three threads per day about how this and that user was reported (if you can see it for other teams, then you can also see it for your own, right?) and then they go to the forums to argue their strategy. We have enough of those threads already about what constitutes a ****ing theme team.

And such process need not be transparent if it would actually work on the business end of the trigger.

Which it clearly does not.

I never said anything about the developers identifying specific teams or users. None of that would be necessary. But it'd be helpful to know how the process works and who makes which decisions. I mean, is there a set of procedures in place? Or is it all slapdash? It would also be reassuring to see data about number and types of reports received, and the ultimate outcomes. Maybe that's asking too much; I don't know. But, personally, I won't invest a dime in PT until I'm sure that serious action is taken against TOS violators. To date, based on what I've seen, it doesn't seem to be happening.

I assume you reported them? Markus said they send a warning and then next time they are banned at the end of the week. Not sure why Mr. playoff tanker which this thread is based on got a pass. He was supposed to be warned last Sat and he did it anyway Sunday. Perhaps the warning was for this week and he'll get his just rewards this week. I hope it doesn't simply fall through the cracks.

I did. I ended up getting relegated by 2 games. I am sure the team that finished 2 games OUT of the relegation zone by going 9-0 against the tanking team appreciates the tank job.

Hey everyone, Las Vegas white claws here. This is my first time visiting this forum and to my surprise I saw that my name was being included in this thread. Just some things: I was sent a warning on October 26 although it was in my spam email for some reason. So the mods are doing their jobs please lay off them. Second, I was unaware of this being an issue. I had built a team for gold and saw that the PP earned was very minimal so sold my team and went down to bronze (did not tank). From there, I built a new team with my sold cards and new bronze earnings. From there I have stayed in Bronze as it was generating the most PP to build a team. Was unaware that this was tanking. I have reached out to the mods since to correct this if possible and will be climbing the ranks from henceforth.

Hey Emilempenza,

I would like to formally apologize to you for any frustration I may have caused. I didn’t realize what my actions could have done to others and have worked with one of the mods so that we can move forward. I hope we can put this past us and wish you luck along the way.

As someone else who was impacted by your tanking, let me just say thank you for reaching out, your contrition and your willingness to follow the Perfect Team TOS from this point further.

I look forward to following your progress up to Perfect League.

In D396 there is a team that is 3-23 playing all Iron players with a roster full of Perfect and Diamond cards.

LOL.

IMHO it is impossible to tank in this game because the goal is getting and winning the perfect league by any means necessary. (there is a manger we do not control)

I took apart my diamond winning all live team because once in PL I couldn't compete. We ended up dropping a little, but the team is totally rebuilt into a non-pay all special team, Bronx Bears.

I am now tearing apart my other team, Larrupin' Lou's, a gold league champion with all 1970 Balt, A's & Reds (+ 85 Lou). This may take time for me to find a theme I like.

There is no tanking on my end. Just getting it right.

It never takes away from Belfast.

If anything there should be a way to move all the teams who haven't played in a month into a league that doesn't get PP until they become active again.

You should read the Terms of Service. Losing on purpose to drop a level is clearly tanking.

Snitches might get snitches but cheaters get reported and a warning then lose their account.

We are in that league together in the same division, in fact.
