#3971212 Regarding Batens Thread on Wintrading

Posted Bigmoran on 23 October 2013 - 02:03 AM

**I decided to make this a seperate thread, instead of posting it on the individual post itself so that it wouldn't detract from the point of that thread**

While I do agree that wintrading is reprehensible, I find it ironic that the thread was made by a person who has a very conspicuous win/loss on the EU ladders.

In fact, the top players on EU all have really dodgy win/losses. I don't think they are wintrading or exploiting, tho Trillebartom was one of the players who originally exploited the conquest bug. Instead I think there is a serious problem with top EU players not queing into each other. Dodging is, to some degree, a form of queue manipulation and is overall bad for competition (just as wintrading is bad for competition).

Just contrast EU ladders to US ladders and you can clearly see there is some sort of anti-competitive outlook among the top players:

My challenge to EU is to start having actual competition instead of making a thread directed at an entire country in the name of fair play.
