To recap, a trade took place yesterday between my team (Red Tide) and Arcola Alligators that was perceived as unfair and was flagged by numerous managers, some enthusiastically accusing me of all kinds of cheating. I have been in discussions with Glawing for some time today as to how to best handle the situation - he has seen the messages between myself and the other manager involved, and will comment on this thread to confirm that no cheating took place. The trade will also be reversed.
Here is a recap of what happened:
1) I had drawn-out discussions with the Arcola manager with regard to his player Gibazov (91F), sending him numerous offers, including Bowen(89C) that eventually went to the team.
2) The latest offer from me was Bowen (89C), and my GHL 1st for Gibazov (91F)
3) The Arcola manager countered this offer with Gibazov + 2nd for Bowen, which I immediately accepted because while it is unfavourable to him, I am not responsible for his decisions - I am responsible for making my team better. The offer was bad, but not so bad as to suspect any kind of foul play or self-destruction.
4) Some time shortly after my acceptance of the offer, the manager of Arcola resigned, making the entire situation seem entirely more shady.
I proactively reached out to Glawing today to address the situation, providing my POV, and offering to reverse the trade.
I appreciate the pushback of this community against cheating, which this would have been a blatant and easily noticeable example of, had it actually happened. That was awesome.
What was not so awesome is some managers immediately jumping to arms and accusing me of shady dealings not only in this trade, but every other trade (you know who you are), and refusing to listen to my POV. Not fantastic for your health to have so much repressed anger, friends .
I hope this clears it up. Glawing will comment below to confirm, and we can all move on with our season.
