Default Case break rule to be added.....

I was looking at a case break recently and I did a little reverse engineering.

One member got the best or 2nd best possible team and got a valuable hit from the break from this team.

As I looked back I never saw that the member actually requested a spot in the break, never saw the member post that he paid and in fact the 1st post from the member in the thread was AFTER the random had been done.

Now I am NOT saying anything was done wrong but perception could lead some to believe something COULD have been done wrong.

We should add a rule that ALL requests for slots be posted in the thread ONLY.

Does this make sense.

Yes, it makes sense.

- All users must post their requests for slots.

Would be my suggested fix (I honeslty thought it was a rule).

I know of a couple of instances where guys were members but were still unable to post (due to pending admin approval) but could read

That's what happens when it's more about just moving a case then actually having some standards for those who host breaks like BO used to have.

Amazing that it took someone not even in the break to notice this. By all means post the thread here.

this is indeed a little disturbing.

On 2nd thought, more than just a little. Integrity of the entire break seems to be in question.

Well, I know that sometimes I have texted Pat to grab slots in his breaks - but he always posts in the thread that I asked via phone for slots, and then I always post when I have paid.

I agree with the OP though, seems a little off at first glance

yeah, but that was probably posted prior to the random

For the record...this still pisses me off and I don't think I will ever participate in another group break on here again.

I think I know which one/ones your talking about and I think I actually brought it up to someone when I saw it...

With live random draws ita hard to rig the break BUT it can mean that the host is indeed in the break before the random under this "users" name

Bro pm me the details but I think I know which one your talking about

Hopefully it's not me!!!! Lol
