Is it legal to match against youself and then throw games to farm up a team? Like this guy just has about 8 games in a row against the same ogre team and they are all like 6-0 wins.

This is for a league in which there are builder matches to get drafted players up to their required SPPs. Completely legit, in this specific instance.

@TheDukeofDirty

A fellow league mate already interjected but as commish of said league I'd like to explain it:

We have a draft for the league which allows you to select players that have SPP and skills from the NCBB league. In order to put those skills on players we need to feed them SPP and we use builder games to achieve that.

To the outsider observer this looks like cheating but in reality this is just how we make the league work.

Allowed in the League division, which is the sandbox where coaches can do whatever they would like. In this case, it's a League that is organized around drafting pre-skilled players, and there's no alternative way to add the spp. Compliance is managed under the direction of the League Commissioner of whichever league the team plays.

In competitive divisions like Ranked or Blackbox, absolutely not allowed. Teams get retired, coaches get banned, it's bad. Don't make the mistake of doing this in Ranked or Blackbox.

This is an awesome league, by the way. If you want into the NBFL, though, you have to either get very lucky, be very patient, or earn it in the NCBB, which starts a new season soon!

And regardless of League, Ranked or Box... it would be illegal to play against yourself because you should really only ever have one account. So playing against your own team is fairly impossible, no?

... and for what it's worth, I hold the record for highest number of SPP's given in a farming game. Anyone who can show me something better takes the cake. Very Happy

Let's stop worrying about how much I cheat and focus on the real question raised by the OP:

Is it legal to make a fake account to 'farm up' some trolling?
