"Congrats", Monsters of Midway. It was a good win for you.

I still hate this #$%&*@ Cup format!!!! My D2 team had to play (and lose to) another D2 team from my own division, while BOTS ARE STILL PLAYING EACH OTHER!

Gee, I hope the bots use the extra game income wisely.

You seem to draw the short stick in the regional cup more than anyone. I’m not sure what the parameters are for the initial cup bracket setup, but it looks like you got an unlucky team ID or something and will continue to be plagued with this.

GL with that

Hmmm ... I hadn't really been thinking that it happened to my team more than others. I've assumed that it happened to most everyone fairly equally. (And it hasn't actually happened to my team every season.)

My point wasn't about how often these early high-tier match-ups happen to my team in particular, but that they shouldn't be happening at all to anyone actually managing a team, when/if there are an ample number of bot teams to go around.

Basically, IMO, two human-managed teams shouldn't have to play each other, no matter what divisions they are in, while bots are playing other bots. Once it reaches a point where there aren't enough bots left for everyone to play against, then it can certainly go to the "luck of the draw" for determining the "managed vs. managed" games.

But I'm not gonna hold my breath waiting for that ....

I'm shocked. I played a really weak developmental lineup but it bit me. I lost to a bot. I have never lost to a bot before.

Just unlucky.

However, vanatir isn't your ordinary bot. Lots of high priced players on that team and a few got dropped randomly into their normal positions.

Yeah, I remember Vanatir making their run up the ranks, then ran out of cash. Still, I thought bots had such a penalty, simply setting orders with a valid line up should be good enough to win. I once had a bot run up 21 pts on me, but I ran up 63 or so on them. Strange outcome and everyone should beware of Bot-Vanatir now, that was a statement win

I ran into Vanatir in the 2nd round of the NA Cup back in Season 17. It was only my 2nd full season and only the 3rd ever cup game I played here. I clearly remember seeing all those same high priced players and thinking I was going to get clobbered.
