This is a prime example of why tanking ruins seasons.

We're g1 and they're p3.

When seasons start they'll be crushing mid-line g1 alliances.

    Not if they start using Prestige as well as War Rating, when thr Season starts. ;)

    True.

    My comment to them stands, regardless.

    gold 1 and p3 is a diffidence of one place. You're in tier 4, what do you expect?
    To expect tanking for p3 alliances is the status quo now?

    Needs more salt. Try running 2 bgs, I've been doing that for months and not once have I come across alliances tanking. Therefore it doesn't happen if you run 2 bgs.

    I don't think you understood my post.

    They are tanking. We get a free win. We play p3s all the time.

    What's not fair is when seasons starts, they'll be facing mid-line g1 alliances that will be crushed. They'll probably have half their season as cakewalks, while the poor mid-line g1 alliances will receive an unfair matchup.

    This isn't due to matchmaking but due to people manipulating the system.

    You didnt really show tanking so I can understand peoples responses.

    You showed a relatively even match screen

    Without more info I cant tell that's a tank

    Yeah, that's my bad. I just assume people read my message.
  • Even with reading you in-game War Chat message at bottom of picture, still unclear what they did to be tanking ? Did they place 2*/3* defenders ? Can’t be lack of attackers (just started and yours is low Explore % obviously so far also). Or do you know their end-of-season War Rating and/or Rank within Plat-3 and are comparing to them now being much further down in WR ?

    They don't have a defense. Pretty tell-tale sign.

    And you can tell that from a SS of the lobby?

    There is a difference of 52 points in the war ratings, hardly an indication of tanking if you ask me.

    Not placing a Defense, in Plat 3, most definitely.

    No, what I was saying was we don’t know they didn’t place a defense. Unless I am missing something from that SS. Is there a telltale sign? All we have is @Hamin saying they didn’t. Now I’m not calling him a liar, but all we have is his word. I actually believe him because of his puffer fish message. What I wanted to know was is there a way to tell defense is placed or not just from the lobby like that.

    No, there isn't.

    All I was stating is that tankers (like them) are scum, and it's unfair to lower alliances during seasons.

    War rating shouldn't change during the off-season, only in season. If an alliance wants to chill and not use boosts and pots in the off-season that's great.... But now all these alliance's just tank, war is not really that enjoyable.

    Not a fan of off season war either. Joined a new small alliance i left 9mil and seen tanking in both ends of the spectrum. .

    You think that is bad look at the top 3 alliances from last season. I would love to be in an alliance that has 2 members and finished top 3
