I realize calling this can be tricky, but TigerShark has a history of surrendering games early, before they have taken any losses. In our latest game, TS threw their arms up when their Grasshopper slipped on pavement - unlucky, but something any veteran on this server should easily be able to overcome. This did not stop TS from making his trademark comment "That was such bs", and soon after he declared surrender despite equal damage being dealt on both sides.3.8 Throwing games
Throwing games gives you an unfair advantage (cash/xp without any risk) at the expense of your fellow house members. This is against the rules.
Defining when a game is thrown or when it is ok to surrender is very tricky.
As a rule of thumb: if you don't try to fight, you are more than likely throwing the game. (So ask yourself honestly: am I runnig away coz i cannot win or because i don't like my opponents nose, his army or his camo pattern?)
If you are not sure, if you or your opponent is throwing a game, call in a moderator. In case of doubt they are the ones who find the right decisions.
Hours later, he proceeded to take the same army and ambush one of our newer, less experienced players, a move I'm sure they thought would be an easy win. I think this is a clear example that would violate the above rule, and from talking with a few of the other players on the server I know others will vouch that this is a common trend from TS.
The cherry on top: even after I allowed the easy surrender, they left game server early. That's another violation of special rule 8. I know that TS knows if you leave a game server early you can bug out the game payout mechanism. Again, not the first time I've seen them do that.
