    Angry People that have a bunch of supporters that gain possession in matches

    Supporters in matches - People that 'acquire' friends in the game to get them to cheer on when they are playing. I came up against someone at the top of the league, undefeated, that had a very mediocre team and I was wondering why she was there. I got my answer as soon as we started playing- she had about 7 'supporters' cheering her on!! Call me cynical, but she was a very attractive girl with what I can assume is a bunch of phoneys/perverts following her which allow her to get a great advantage in terms of possession in our match.

    My solution would be that you can only friend someone who is a friend on Facebook. This would cut down on all the 'glory hunting' (and pervert trolling if I'm honest). It doesn't help that I can't support genuine friends on different servers and vice versa. This might come off as sour grapes but I actually won 5-1 (don't know if my maximum 30k win bonus had an effect) but it is something that is inherently unfair.

    possession doesn't turn into result if team stat is not great.

    I get what you mean but tbh I don't think it has that much effect on the game (imo the win bonus is a crock of shite to btw). I love it when the opposing manager watches and has multiple friends watching, its more incentive to beat them.

    Did it not feel much better beating her, whilst she had so many friends viewing the game??

    I had a game the other day that I missed because I wrote down on a piece of paper reminder with 10 minutes later kick off. The guy watched with bunch of his friends, I won 8-0. I bet they are all quitting the game haha.

    We call this practice in the forum as Power Support, there are a good number of managers in T11 that do have genuine power support, but there are also some managers that create new facebook accounts and link them their team and abuse the power support system, however it doesn't stop anyone else from doing the same.

    Then surely T11 should implement my suggestion of only being able to have supporters that are actual Facebook friends (as other games do).

    It would cut down on the 'cheating' and 'enticing' that some managers are practicing.

    it would not stop those who have multiple facebook accounts since they are all also friends on facebook

    TBH, I hate it when anyone comes along and "supports" me in a match. It seems to me that the more supporters I get, the worse my team plays. I quite like to see my opponent getting support against me. I then seem to win more.
