Here we go again.
Just faced a team from Japan… which oddly enough was full of Russian mercs who’d just joined.
Latest scam - put 4-5 bottom feeders in your alliance. People with team strength under 1000. Their war teams net you only 19 pts when you take them out. Not even worth a flag.
Next - since these bottom feeders count towards total opponent strength it allows them to stack the deck with players whose team strength is above what you ought to be seeing. In our case - a bunch with more than 4100 TS. We never had a chance vs this team. Waste of our time.
This exploit gets around the spirit of war for fair matches. It’s a cheat. I’m pretty bloody sick of war exploits at this point.
