    Time to take another inventory of Easy Riders' challenges with 3 clans.
    Anti-Metallica, Breaking Bad and Arrow clans.

    As of today - Nov 8, 2016.

    W/L/D statistics for Easy Riders against the 3 clans noted above.
    Challenges Completed 2016 thus far....

    Anti-Metallica - 12 completed, 11W 0L 1D ; Net points - 250
    Breaking Bad - 13 completed, 13W 0L 0D ; Net points - 230
    Arrow Clan - 15 completed, 13W 1L 1D ; Net points - 212

    From 3 clans noted at beginning of this post, record is as follows:
    Total won, lost, drawn - 37W 1L 2D - Win percentage 93%
    Total Net Points so far 2016 - 692 net points

    From all other clans, record is as follows:
    Total won, lost, drawn - 118W 81L 103D - Win percentage 39%
    Total Net Points so far 2016 - 442 net points
    (excluding 3 clans noted at beginning of this post)

    692 out of Easy Riders' 1134 total net points have come from 3 clans
    at the bottom of the clan standings.
    That is 61% out of their total net points !!

    Final summary:
    Easy Riders have won 37 out of 40 challenges against the 3 clans noted above.
    That is a 93% winning percentage.
    Against all other clans, their winning percentage is 39% !!
    (118 out of 302 challenges).

    Funny how Carrobie and his cohorts complained about Metallica's winning percentage !!
    Currently around 56%.

    Here at the top of the clan table in 2016 sits a clan Easy Riders that
    has a 93% winning percentage against 3 clans and 39% winning percentage
    against every other clan in 2016.

    We are now in the home stretch of the 2016 clan season.
    At this time, I would like this thread to be a poll to determine
    if the readership agrees that this should be taken up with site administration.
    I would like readers to minimize any consideration that site administration
    will sit back and do nothing about this.
    i.e. please do not vote with a "what's the point ?" mindset.
    Voting consideration should be strictly whether this should be pursued with the site.

    Also, this should not be taken to mean that all the suggestions recently
    brought forward in this forum should be diminished in any way !!

    As usual, vote with your thumbs.
    And have a great day !!

    I don't post on here much because a lot of the stuff is rubbish.
    I also don't use the thumbs or the silly faces.
    That is my choice but I will say this.
    There's never going to be a solution to the Metallica/anti metallica problem without some compromises on both sides.
    How about for a start:-
    Easy riders play no more challenges against the 3 clans mentioned above until the end of the year.
    Metallica do not throw any more games for the rest of the year where the challenge result has already been decided.
    Come on you two.You know all this mud slinging to and fro is going nowhere.
    I've always found Fred(Short circuit) to be a reasonable chap in my dealings with him and Robbie has made sensible remarks on other subjects so please,get your heads together and let's try to stop all this rubbish

    I think your post is lacking substance on all fronts.

    First, this is NOT a Metallica/Anti-Metallica problem !!
    This is an Easy Riders, Anti-Metallica, Breaking Bad and Arrow problem !!
    Yes, Metallica has been a target for years from certain individuals.

    Second, asking Easy Riders to not play any more challenges with the 3 suspect clans is a nonsensical remark !!
    Easy Riders has already collected 700 points from these clans.
    They don't have to play any more challenges with these clans this year.

    Third, Your request that Metallica not throw any more games where the challenge has been decided is rather unsubstantiated !!
    Instead may I suggest that you ask certain members of 3 certain clans to not throw games where the result has NOT yet been decided !!
    That might be a more practical request !!

    Thanks .....

    my response left my thumb up your a$$
    now let's get silly

    I don't agree with all your analysis (as you might expect.!)
    Firstly, as I understand it the anti metallica clans were formed specifically to dislodge metallica from the top spot on the net points list(as I've said in the past ,it's not a table it's just a list).Metallica's policies are specifically aimed at staying at the top of the list so perhaps a change in the throwing games policy in decided challenges would make Metallica less of a thorn in some peoples side
    Secondly the games already played by Easy riders cannot be undone so are in effect irrelevant
    I was suggesting a way forward.
    You must agree that without some form of arbitration the situation isn't going to alter.
    I've made my suggestions and really have little else to say on the subject.
    I'm sure others will pitch in on the debate.
    Thanks for your response

    Venda,
    I do believe it will be close to impossible get everyone in agreement. I have seen a lot of good suggestions. The problem would be in getting everyone on the same page. I think we are way too seperated right now.

    This thread is quite popular.
    In fact, it tops the recommended list for posts.
    Nice to see posts based on facts and statistics win out over innuendos, slurs and general drivel !!

    Keep the votes coming.

    it would be an interesting feature if for each clan there was a summary breakdown of maybe the top 5 or 10 clans they have scored most points from

    A nice to have for sure.

    But the real point being made here is the disparity in their winning performance.

    They are "world beaters" when they "play" against 3 clans.

    And quite mediocre when playing everyone else !!

    Not innuendo !!
    Not a false accusation !!

    Just statistics !!

    Over to Carrobie.
    C'mon man !!

    people will always seek an advantage, whatever system is implemented someone will find a loophole in it and a way to exploit it, a fair system is not possible in my opinion

    I am thinking on starting a clan myself.
    How do I get challenges with the top clan ie Easy Riders ?

    50 quid and a blow job would probably do it
