    Should reward the squads that are actually keeping this game remotely alive. I'd imagine most people don't think twd cup is anything close to twl.. who really cares if paladen is in the playoffs. At the end of the day they're going to get steamrolled by whatever good squad played enough games (envy). It does seem to be working a bit as there's more games than usual. Should consider another twdt season and let tsl die asap

    Tl;dr:

    This zone is operated by a bunch of faggots, of course, all being masturbated in every direction and technique by the same old jerk boys. Nobody accomplished anything or changed views. People realized TSL sucks because its too late and the game was already slowly strangled by the small group of players who managed to jerk staff off just right.

    Yep nothing new in the history of people. There is no point to not manipulate any system you encounter. There is no such thing as honor, only winning in whatever little game you play. If there is no punishment for cheating, people will cheat. You will find this the case in any sort of society - the most religious, the wealthiest, the most hard done by. Human behaviour is only restrained by the artificial limits we decide to impose. If there is a reward introduced tomorrow for killing sweet old ladies there's going to be a massacre (unless there is some counter reward put out by some moral person or group). When you groom people to be so materialistic, so self-consumed, there is no alternative. It's a virus that makes its way into every avenue and nook of the society. Capitalism, more than just a political system, puts money in the place of God and so what is rewarded must be good. It does not matter the path I took to get there - after all cheating is not inherently bad. Maybe I'm a Robin Hood type figure. Maybe I'll lie and cheat my way to the top and when I'm there make the world much better than I could without money. Some people rationalize their decisions like this but they only rarely actually do good.

    You could also take the approach that it's just a game. Who cares if anybody cheats? There are two responses. The first is that it must be beneficial to your experience to cheat. There must be some reason for you to cheat or you would not do it. Therefore anyone saying "why do you care if I cheat in this game" can be answered in full by responding, "why do you care enough to cheat?". The second line of argument is that everything is a game, even life. So what if I manipulate the political climate for instability and conflict - that might just be a game for me. Therefore the response "it's just a game" can be used in any sort of context because games (viewed as a system to manipulate and win) can be anything you want. Manipulating your people to send them to war for your profit - just a game.

    This game has been ripe for abuse the entire time. As long as people care about the reward (titles) and there are loose enforcement of rules, there will be cheaters. And this game naturally has poor enforcement of rules because people are involved at every junction, almost nothing is automated like newer games. Every person in a position of power over some aspect of the game is peer pressured or manipulated or profiting as well.

    That's why I find it so hilarious when people want even less activity in this game. They will make a lot of noise and rarely address your points, hoping that their previous rounds of cheating and deceit carries its weight to now.

    I can prove that this is the case, that cheating has dominated this game, quite reasonably I think. For starters you will have a significant amount of mediocre players around in a so-called compeitive league, because actual good players were gone the moment the competitive field wasn't completely even. Why waste your time on a shit game when there are plenty of better competitive games available. So you have people like i.d., J-B-Inc., and many more who actually get quite angry about the fact that they probably couldn't beat you in a duel. Somewhere during the years they actually believed they were good at a game because they were on the cheater's side. They don't even realize how many people are brown nosing them and building up their ego only for me to take it down.

    Just some thoughts after reading the first chapter of Trotsky's "Appeal to the Toiling... Peoples of Europe". Let us remember that this type of thinking, at least, this self-serving "only I matter" attitude is capable of very real anarchy that one day, could be a simple video game's downfall and the next day the downfall of civilization. Thank you.

    Also everybody who hates cheaters knows they thrive off of your reaction. That's why anyone who cares about their image wont go out any say "oh I quit because you cheated" they'll just make up some bs excuse lmao. Yeah I'm sure people are too busy to play this game literally once a week.

    TSL is the best league. This game is in trouble Henry, Skyforger and rab are running this game. I think all together they have two years experience and maybe half a game of TWL under their belts. This game is fucked.

    ?
    I'm not running anything. I'm not even staff. I chip in ideas because I care, and built the TSL website just because I wanted it to happen. I've played the game and competed in basing since 2001. So I never joined a stacked squad for TWL, big deal.

    You, on the other hand, have all the same opportunity to help out, but choose to whine on the forum instead. So kindly go fuck yourself.

    Oooohhhh, I didn't pay attention. This cup is for activity only and rewards brute force losing and not to bring back the people on the edge of deciding to play or not to play........Go paladen!

    Can you allow people to join other squads that were active? COME ON, this competition is going to be a snooze crushing.....will join paladen please.....

    I said in the WhatsApp group chat to the people running this idk how we can leave a squad like yours out of this tiny. All vet players that cant play much but would show up for important matches. It's a shame. I'll step up and run the next TwdCup. As I should have for this one but wedding planning is a bitch 🙄 I say if we dont let everyone in atleast give a grace period for those who didnt make it to grab a squad to play with.

    I know the idea of all of us joining some squad and becoming a super squad would suck, but how about drafting the people that participated onto other squads? Just an idea...

    I agree lol. Let's change everything at the last seond to accomodate people who spent more time whining about TWD Cup than understanding its rules. I'm sure that will be a great step forward for this game's competitive scene. Not like anybody tried fucking with the rules at the last minute to get an advantage in this game right?

    Why can't they come up with something fun for the squads who didn't get in? We could host wildcard matches or even fun events like UFC or wbduel/javduel that if you win, can join a squad or bring your squad in. They are just shafting those of us who were active but couldn't net 5-10 games a day like Paladen was able because they have a massive roster. These rules are awful, please Geio, you are the only one who seems to be listening and willing to go to bat for those of us who are being swept under the rug. Surely there is something that can be done that won't kill off more active players and divide the community further? This is such nonsense, they know it, you know it, we all know it lol..
