    I just logged in into one of my teams and yesterday I beat a 63% team 3:1 with a 12% starting eleven with the line-tanking formation. My bonuses aren't even max, they were 6%. I just log in with these teams occasionally and on weekends for asso matches...
    The game is weird man, you notice it even more when you are doing strange stuff. I should never beat a 50% stronger team with a nonsense formation and all players out of position (for example 1% ML plays in goal, 3 GKs on the field) even when the other guy is (temporarily) inactive.
    You're right. Reading what you did with the nonsensical formation and all, you really shouldn't have won even if your opponent was not active. Harder to lose than win. I did hope that active players would be rewarded so no complaints from me. And in a way, they made it tougher for tankers to participate in the cup and cl. The moment u train, u win lol

    Was your level 4 youth tanking team able to avoid promotion?

    No, it is now Level 5.
    It was the one with the weakest league, I think the best team had around 60% and all others 30-40%.

    And yeah, generally I also prefer it when the active players win. But really, this isn't always the case either...

    If it's the bonus then it makes sense as I do keep my bonuses up. It also explains why I am having a harder time now than compared to tanking with another account a few seasons ago. I am in serious trouble as there is no way I can win the league and might have trouble finishing below 10th place. My league is weak too but at 1 percent, in straight line tanking formation, all players in wrong positions and a yellow exclamation for formation, winning any match is absurd.

    The troll quality range is at least up to 60%, so a ‘well-trained team plus attendance bonus’ could still cause such an upset even when the chance is very, very low.

    Players having poor conditions level would perform worse than usual. Maybe try training all those 1% players to close to 30% conditions just before match starts, and also force the team to play hard pressing & man-on-man to further deplete their remaining conditions? Such a team ‘should’ concede many goals in the last 30 mins in any match.

    I'd like to see it in team showcase.

    What about these sponsor tasks this season?

    Add 10 stars to your players coming in the middle of the season? Cmon Nordeus...

    I expect more strange results and our AM will say 'Our players couldn't handle the rainy weather'.
    Another way for engine to manipulate who wins and who losses

    Training DC role was unexpected for me.

    Yes, rather unexpected for 2 roles a season, though I have already suggested in threads before that roles of ST, MC & DC are all very likely and also that we should buy sole 40%+ AMC & DMC to train all the 3 roles in advance.

    Just played another straight line tanker and it is definitely the bonuses. The impact is insane. He was 30 odd percent and myself 1 percent. Won 2-1. Still sitting at 9th spot
