I've already reported the individuals involved to Wargaming, so I won't waste time naming and shaming specific individuals, but I feel compelled to share the story nonetheless because the actions described below are so damn lame (I have no idea if they were also intended to abuse the Blitz Madness competition, but I suppose it is possible- I certainly raised this possibility in my ticket). 

 

I was in a game on Middleburg in my VK 30.02M. There were eight M4s in the match, four on each side, with some recognizable names driving them- all clan members from Attrition, Defiant, Titan, & Blitzkrieg (with the majority from Attrition).

 

The goal of the exercise was to ensure that one of the eight scored as highly as possible, mainly by blocking opponents and teammates. In my opinion, this is far worse than simple failtooning or blocking because it is a coordinated effort to ruin the game for everyone else. It is also an extremely pathetic way to score 7 kills and makes me question the actual skills of the individuals involved. If any clan leadership from the above clans wants the names, I'm happy to share. These clowns certainly aren't doing your clans any PR favors. Pictures below.

Great whiteness protection pictures. All the names have been removed and you can see the excellent formations of the clans in battle. 

Tier 10's: FV 183, T110E3, T110E4, T110E5, T57, M48, IS-4, IS-7, T-62a, Obj 140, Grille, BätChät 

 

There is only one TD and 183 is her name. 

I drive Joseph Stallon (IS) tanks for the win.

Seriously guys? The hell? I worked my rear off for that 7-kill game, to find you all just plan to cheat your way up into the top 100? Ffs.

 

Thank you for reporting this crap to WG staff. This should not be allowed to stand.

I can not believe this!

 

 

 

Are you telling us that these clans act like a group of individuals joined by a common interest in the improvement of certain members of such group? Uh, like a clan?

 

Gosh, oh the humanity.

 

(I must have missed the clan news letter announcement on this one. Dang it!)

 

Happy hunting,

So, you're OK with the rigging of contests? What about the other players, without clans, that you're screwing over because they cannot reach 1500xp without cheating? Is that OK too? You can't be serious.

 

It's like having the 100m dash in the Olympics, but with only athletes from one nation competing in each round.

Actually this is a pretty huge [edited]move, especially sync dropping to fill both sides and impeding the other teams ability to basically cheat.  This completely invalidates the entire competition and it should be reported and that person should be disqualified, or worse.

 

I was wondering if people would do this, but I was certainly hoping they wouldn't.  I really hope Wargaming is paying attention.

The worst part is, since the forum guys are usually on break on the weekends, they may not be able to catch this in time. Not to mention that it seems like this isn't an isolated incident. I'll be intested in seeing if the top 100 consists only of clan members.

 

POSTERITY EDIT: This post singlehandedly killed an alliance.

That's fairly asinine.

 

A clan that condones such behavior has no honor.

Wow. Try getting some skills instead of cheating. 

 

I worked really hard for my normally high score in these tanks. i really like these contests, glad to know that there are those out there trying to ruin them for the rest of us.

The moment WoTB announced March Madness I knew it that some folks would do that. Or at least I would have bet. Those playing M4 more often (or T49 or PzIV, etc.) know how f hard is to get over 1k XP in regular game. That is shame. Hope WG does something about it. Cheating for 1000 Gold ... gimme a break ... it is only 5$. If you could do this for less than 5$ what else you could do ... f morons.

It's not the gold, it's the Panzer IIJ. It's worth hundreds.

This.  I didn't even bother playing lower brackets, I just wanted the tank.  Not going to bother playing anymore obviously, now that the only way to win is cheating.

I'm not a fan of countdowns,they lend themselves to all manner of foolishness.  Tell you what, if your plum bored with the game just go on to the next thing.  But this?  This is even worse than that, rigging the result of a competition to get free tanks, gold, and garage spots is really shady sh...!  

 

The leadership of these organizations has to be called in to question.  As in, you obviously don't understand the responsibilities inherit.  Now I'm beginning to understand why so many players tell me no thanks when I recruit them and voice their disdain for clans.  This is 't just about your clan!  This is the type of behavior that gives ALL clans a bad name!
