    Looking at recent clan results, I noticed that my clan (Ireland) was defeated by Chess Troopers, but their players had strikingly low ratings compared to their opponents in my clan. Based on rating differences, Ireland should have crushed them.
    Now I simply never match up players of very different ratings at the start of any match and I am confident these differences did not exist then. So their ratings have fallen.
    If I offered a rematch now, I would be pitching weaker players in my team against opponents who have already defeated my stronger players.
    I made a final check, and sure enough, Chess Troopers is one of the highest ranking clans on the site with an impressive score.
    So why the falling ratings and how am I supposed to set up a fair match for both the team and my individual players?
    BTW I do have team players with falling ratings. But they are losing games to achieve that outcome and that is reflected in our inglorious ranking among the clans. It is not the same at all.

    At least your clan is not setting fixed challenges. (see Easy Riders)

    tournaments might have some bearing on it. Players play tournaments and they get pummelled by higher rated players. There is no real way to set up a fair challenge, it sounds too risky.

    Cheap is the massive amount of points your clan has obtained by cheating.

    Collusion with the three sisters specifically.

    Chess Troopers are also on performance enhancing challenges from Arrow as well.

    They have several gimme's working courtesy of the sisters

    Oh come now McCheater, NO ONE comes close to you in that regard.
    Robbie is among the filthy lot of you, but he wasn't smart enough to orchestrate this.
    He is just a wannabe who couldn't get there without assistance form you and the sisters.

    If you are incapable of assimilating what the OP was attempting to ascertain then I suggest that you ask for help. There are plenty of other threads where you can vent your frustration against the excellence of the Easy Riders in any terms you choose. Perhaps this not the thread for you.
