Tournaments and tanking

I want to follow the rules as set forth, but I must admit I am very tempted to sell off some quality players in order to purchase a Gold-level tournament roster.

Some players focus going forward will be less on the actual perfect team mode and more on tournaments. Will you be punishing those players who sell off their quality players to buy in to tournament rosters?

When you sell these players, will you replace them with the best players that you have left or a roster of irons?

I would replace with best available option. I'm not trying to game the PT system, I just wanna play gold tournaments. I suppose therein lies the difference between me and a tanker.

You are still sacrificing wins in your standard PT league in favor of something else (in this case, points and packs in gold tournaments). This is in direct opposition with the ToS, though this says far more about the ToS than it does your team or your intentions.

The ire of the community will be proportional to how large of a downgrade you're experiencing. Retooling your roster with gold players may get you relegated from Perfect and may even hemorrhage points to your opponents at alarming levels (especially if we're talking about love gold pitchers here), but you'll still look competitive enough that nobody will care much. The additional fact that you won't be changing between good and bad players each season as you relegate and promote will quiet what small amount of anger might remain over a significantly downgraded lineup.

We have seen no evidence of game admins adhering strictly to the letter of the law, and you're close enough to being compliant with the spirit of the law that you should easily have zero issues.

It's not tanking if you are selecting the best team you have available, seems pretty clear to me. You aren't deliberately losing.

IMHO, "selling" off your players isn't the issue that "not playing them" is.


Both scenarios will cause you to lose games, but only the second option gives you the opportunity to beat up on lesser teams once you get relegated.

Yes, that's the difference. It's clearly not tanking and does not violate the ToS.

The spirit of the ToS is to ensure that teams are fielding their best available current roster in league play. If you abide by that, then there is nothing to worry about.

I'd sell off that annoying lefty who can't ever get his ERA under 6...and maybe turn him into gold players.

But no one else wants him. Nine of him on the AH as of this mornin, and the prices are falling, falling

The uniqueness of the tournaments is you don't have to sell off players. You can buy and create a Gold, Silver or Bronze team while keeping your league team intact.

You have 3 decent teams so you don't necessarily have to sell.
