Clan cheating in Ranked

I have just played a game in Ranked where one Hindenburg and one Zao, on opposite sides, but from the same clan, have stopped and torped each other when game was already decided.

 

This was done in order to farm the damage and possibly save a star. In my mind, that is cheating. What is your opinion? 

 

Should I send the replay to support, community contributors? 

 

Regards.

That sucks mate. Have seen a similar situation today :( 2 from the same clan in opposite team. His clan mate did shoot on him with his Atago. And or Alabama did not shoot back. Just moved slowly. And our team went nuts. And his answer. "LOL NOOBS" That kind of thing is low.

Yep, send it to support.

 

Not definitive evidence, but suspicious enough that WG might look into it some more.

Oh, there is no doubt.

 

They stopped parallel from each other at  4-5km, shoot each other with secondaries for a minute or two and then torped at the same time.....

If it's that obvious, then yeah.

Definitely send it to support then and you could also contact the clan commander in case he/she wants to take action.

Send the replay to support on a ticket naming them both and the Clan, both need a good slapping for trying to game the system.

Given the new clan rules, the leader should want to get rid of them before WG can disband whole clan as 1 of their punishment options.

Please report to support with the replay. The sooner we start banning these players, the better - If we get some banned early on, it will discourage others.

 

@MrConway can we confirm that players caught rigging will be barred from ranked?

Banned permanently from Ranked, and if they have Flint or Black those should be removed, they may see it as a bit of harmless fun, but cheating shouldn't be tolerated.

Would be naming and shaming.

 

Just open a ticket with the replay, a screenshot or two and the timestamp.

No, much as I'm sure a lot of us would like to know who and the Clan it would be against their policy,  let Support handle it.

I opened a ticket regarding this yesterday, was told to just reopen with replays and they will investigate.

Sent with the replay to support. Let's see. 

 

In fact, after watching replay, I think it was not just damage farming, but very probably match fixing.

 

We tried to flank, Henri (me) and Hindenburg (clan X) vs Zao (clan X). I played quite aggressively, considering that I have support.  Hindenburg didn't shoot once and when I tried to escape to repair and went undetected, he sent the direction to Zao so, he could finish me - at that stage, I was wondering how come that Zao was exactly where he should be to have a kill. 

 

We would have won - if the flanking move worked out....

Obvious cases like that - just take that replay and send it to support. They'll deal with it

As others have said - raise a ticket with support and also sent to the clan leader and maybe the deputy or other clan officials.   The only time you don;t do that is if the clan leader is involved - it happened in WoT a number of times.

As long as the situation is as clear as you describe, it's basically match rigging that can get you some nasty punishment, possibly even going beyond personal level (a clan might get disbanded when members do stuff like this, although I'm not sure if clan-level punishment ever really happened in practice).

 

Anyway: yes, it's cheating. Not only in your mind but also by WG rules. The only problem is proving this - if, for example, they just rushed each other and ended up dying by ramming or mutual torping, it's very hard to pin it on them, since there are many players who might do just that despite having no ties to the enemy whatsoever (the guy from the losing team wants any XP he can get to maybe save the star. The guy from the winning team - well, XP is XP, so why not score some more when the match is won already).

 

Still, what you describe - if it really happened like that - might just be enough to judge it foul play. Send the replay to Support and see what they say.

I have checked the clan. Yes, Zao was played by the clan leader.

 

The clan in question is a small,  regional/national and below average clan (WR 49%) and half of the members (clan leader included) have hidden stats.

 

Anyway, let's hope that WG does the right thing.

Had something similar yesterday, clan mates on opposite sides,unfortunately the one on our team decided to find his mate and let his mate sink him without reply, i could not/still can't see any logic to this. he/she only lasted a couple of minutes. The rest of my team went mad calling it cheating

 

Luckily we still won

since clan tags have been introduced you get these threads popping up every time there is ranked. cause you cant have 2 clanmates in ranked match without them rigging it somehow. from description of OP it may be justified, but usually they are not.
