[Poll]Deleting bot teams during the season
« on: February 07, 2013, 06:06:51 AM »
Just before our last league match, one team in my league that has been banned for months was suddenly, and without notice, deleted and replaced with a "starter" team.

5 teams had already played the banned team twice...the remaining teams will all have to play a different team! Also, the switch was made hours or minutes before the league match was set to happen so their opponent prepared for one team (with known tactics and highly unconventional 4-2-4 formation) and wound up playing a completely different one with default tactics and the conventional 4-4-2 formation...and lost the match in what I would call a "great upset". This probably affected the mini-game results too!!!
???
What do you think? Is this acceptable? Please vote!

Brian, are you telling us that a new manager were directly placed in USA's top level? I thought that those things weren't suposed to happen anymore.....

Cleaning must be done in midseason (after round 15 is played) and at the end of season, competition fairness is highly affected when you do cleaning in a different moment, specially if the league has some population (at least 8 teams).
I though issues like this ended long time ago, geez.....

they won't delete any bit or inactive team because in that case the game should pass to have only 500 really active users in this moment.

but it should be made each preseason, of course.

Actually, Brian is saying that they removed a banned team, new user relaced a banned team, not a bot.

For me yes, it can be made because any initiative that can give us more competitiviness is always wellcome. Otherwise this game will die because there are less and less users.

In Germany and in many other countries they can assign teams in top level without any problem, even we would thank it.

Well no, actually a new bot team replaced the old one, but with fresh players...but it seems very poor timing; should have been done at the midpoint of the season at least imo.

there have been much unfair situations in this game that this one, always denounced but always we are answered with we are always complaining and that we are boring people with those complains, already tired of a game where always there is something wrong.

Then, the impact was not that bad. I mean, that bot team played once at full strenght, but his players are weakened now, you will keep having an easy victory there.

You're right it's not a huge change, but remember, the new team is at full strength while the old team was weakened. The biggest effect was on the team that prepared for one team and instead faced a very different one and lost as a result.

TBH it's no impact for me at all, I am one of the 5 that has already played them twice. Even one additional correct prediction in that mini-game wouldn't have won me any extra credits. I'm just hoping that with the poll we can send admin a message that we don't want it happening like this in the future...
