Not my team, but I think this is a clear-cut case of using one team to help another. Names redacted, but this is live recruiting in Knight:
Here is the full ticket thread:

otherguy/otherguy1 has initiated battles against my DIII ___ team using his DII and DIII teams. Is that a fair play violation? I was initially alone on Player 1 and Player 2. At 5:00, he pushed me off of Player 1 using his DIII ___ team. I took the lead back at 8:00. That cycle, he showed up on Player 2 with his DII ___ team.

Clarify why you feel that another owner trying to also recruit these players is a violation. Thanks.

Another owner could recruit these players, but he is using two teams to collude against my one team. He has a DII team with a budget and a DIII team with a budget. If I was just battling one of his teams for two recruits, it would be perfectly fine. He should not be allowed to use two teams against my one team.

Also, when he started the first battle at 5:00pm, I did 5 HVs to try to knock him off the next cycle. If he kept battling, my plan was to go after a big he is recruiting. His double team thwarted my plans.

If possible, I need to know what is going to happen before the 5:00pm EST cycle. Is going to be blocked from recruiting the players due to a fair play violation? Will I have recruiting dollars added back to my budget based on what I spent after he targeted the recruits? Is seble available to review this? Thanks.

otherguy just took the lead on Player 1 with his DIII school. He is already leading on Player 2 with his DII school, mostly because I am holding back money to see what you do.

I'm running out of time. I have recruiting effort scheduled for 5:00pm, but I would much rather be spending that on a 5th recruit. This really should be an easy call for WiS to make. It's clear that otherguy is violating rules. I'm pretty sure seble has covered this type of activity in some of the statements he has made in the forum and in dev chats.

Do I have to complain on the forums to get WiS to take action?
7/2/2013 11:08 PM myfriend
Is WiS seriously not going to do anything about this?"
So, what say the forums? I'll leave it up to my friend whether he wants to publicly shame the other guy.
