    I keep losing to my friends...

    So far this season I have a record of 10-3-3. My record against players I am friends with? 0-0-3. And they are all in the same league as me, and I am 3rd while they are 5th and 8th respectively (The third loss came in Champions League), so it's not that they are just much better teams than me. My team simply either forgets how to play against my friends, or their teams magically play better against me. This was the case last year as well, as I lost two very important matches to one of my friends.

    Is this typical? Are friends more likely to "upset" other friends? Because if that's the case wouldn't it be wise to not have friends in the same league? It's getting really annoying and I need to find out if it's something in the algorithm where the only thing I can do is unfriend them, in order to avoid giving up any advantages.

    I have a lot of friends. They are all in my facebook-group and we know each other very well. It´s hard to win because they know you´re style. Change your stlye, your formation, try s.th. new and you will win. Maybe :P

    Since all of you are active, they take the least active friend and make his/her team go Super Saiya against yours. That's what happened to me when I was playing for 8 season with my real life friends. Can never beat them (and I know for a fact that they are not as active as me). That was the only conclusion I could make, tho I doubt that was the case haha.

    But against FB friends it's all equal. Come to think of it, the Nordeus game is very intelligent to be able to identify your real life friends and FB friends.

    Anyway, I think it is more of a case of hidden boost given to opponents that are relatively lower in quality during matches which makes them pick it up a notch against your better Q team.

    I know that feeling. It sucks. I usually lose the league because of 6 points dropped during loses to friends.

    You have high chances to be in same league with your friends (on same server). To completely prevent this, you should not have friends in the same level.

    You have hard time to play against friends in T11. At the same time, your friends may feel that it is so easy to play against friends. You can assure that your team is forever better than your friends'. Probably, you will feel good winning against a much stronger friend next time.

    I keep losing to Mo by 6 goals. 2nd time in 8 seasons. Pretty pissed about me breaking your unbeaten record last season? She got me this season!
