Deliberate lose AW off-season?

My alliance is facing opponents deliberate losing war setting up defenders impossible not to win over.

Is it wise to lower ranking and how much are they gaining to do it when we are talking about a 10 tier and a gold3/ Silver1 level to prepare for a season?

    Is it wise? Not really. The advantage has been halved because of Tiers 6 and down being reduced. Having said that, it still affects people and I'm a proponent of freezing Rating altogether. Not just for 1-5. Tanking is still very much a thing.

    Objectively speaking, it could be if they've hit a skill wall. But at that level, they should really be able to get gold 3 np by just playing with a half decent amount of organization during the season.

    there's no way to tank in off season. it doesn't affect your ranking at all so most people just treat the off season as a break and will often place trash champs or not at all. it's the off season. enjoy it. practice the new defense tactic if necessary.

    but going up against an easy win is hardly an issue in the off season.

    T6 and below have at least some loss of AWR in an offseason loss. Lower AWR means facing opponents in with lower AWR during the season.

    hmmm i thought off season was the same for everyone's alliance in War. so essentially there is no off season for them?? that's even more terrible.

    For Tier 6 and lower, off-season wins/losses do affect both your AW rating and your Tier level so it is a valid strategy for many.

    Example: say you end a season in Tier 12, the lowest level of Intermediate map. By intentionally tanking off-season, you can start the next season in Tier 13 (beginner map), score easy wins with a minimal reduction in AW multiplier

    that's crazy. (my other comment will appear so apologies for the dupe lol) but yeah ... so essentially they have NO off season at all? it's War all the time for them. insane.
