    Buy shit players to lose on purpose and discard some of your existing reserve/subs and then train your main squad players but you don't play them, you also play illegal formations (i.e 2 defenders or no striker) and all players OOP so you lose every game.

    yea, I guess you're right, but it could be too late and I can end up finishing 7th or something and then it'll really suck.

    Tanking the season makes you able to buy players even for one token nearing half or season's end without having to worry about losing a star or having better options in few days. You will then have an extra season to train them, and you'll arrive on the next level with a strong team.

    My friend baku storm did exactly the same and built a team full of 18 and 19 yo in S5, tanking. Now he's lv6 with 20 yo players between 5* and 6*, without having to spend a single token for PT or any else. His quality is still 5-15 higher then the other teams.
    I think tanking is wrong as a concept
    i admire people who had lower Quality side than mine and give me a great run for my money .. i will do the same too..
    is about winning without relying on how strong your side is and more of how good manager you are

    But you would be in a rather poor league position to begin with to consider tanking at halfway through the season.

    based on my quality I should be in one of the top 5 spots.
    based on my managerial skills, I should be in the top 3.
    based on this game and the shit random results, I'm 8th after 5 matches.

    go figure what's actually considered as a poor league position.. to me, anything but first.

    So far, my tanking has been quite successful. 13th place, with 2 draws and 3 losses from 5 league games. I won my first 2 rounds in the Cup and now preparing for the 3rd round.

    A poor league position would really be finishing OUTSIDE the top 4 (which would be 5,6 or 7) and would result in a promoting non-CL next season.
