    Thumbs up Tanking a season

    I did it with my second team, level 7, and I'll never do it again

    - I haven't assigned a single skill for 28 days
    - I've sold all my 5* players keeping just scouts and 3*
    - my quality was 51,5 (scout leves is 55)

    Result:
    - I 'm not playing the Champions, loosing a lot of money and not enjoying the competition
    - I'm going to easily win the league with 28 wins and maybe 2 goals conceded. So I will not enjoy this tournament as well)
    - Nordeus must have calculated the real skill of my top 11 players adding the non-assigned skills. For this reason I've been included in a level 9 Cup tournament, where my quality is 55.7 while the other teams average quality is 57.5, so I'll be probabily knocked out very soon

    Definitely, I will never tank a season again

    Agreed, no point in tanking. Maybe the exception is when you are sure you will not quality firma CL; then, staying in your level could be moré interesting than promoting, as you are not going to play CL in any case.

    i`v tank once and that was because i had no less than 5 token scout teams in my league and did not want 5th to 7th so this way the next season if i ended up with token buyers again i could compete the other advantage i had with tanking i was near top of server so few 5* players so this meant i had at least two levels above me who would sell 5* players to me but for those above they would 3/4 * players to them

    I'm tanking the league this season ( lost 2 out of 2 so far ) , i'm almost certain i'm at the top of my server as 5 star players are rare as horsesh!t. Will try and get as much money out of my season with champions league tho. Next year will be interesting hopefully

    maybe not so soon

    After having knocked out 4 teams from level 9 (I'm level 7), now I'm facing this guy

    Thank you Nordeus for giving me the opportunity to play on an even footing vs a level 10.

    Don't worry if my team's quality is 55.1 while my opponent is 64.3, I'm very glad to face a team with 9 World Class players, 1 Superstar and 1 Legend
