Surely as the "loser farm teams" continue to lose ten matches every week they will slip down the rankings, and the high ranked teams won't get matched up against them? Wouldn't that mean you'd have to play lots of games on your loser farm team in order to stay competitive and have a chance at matchups with the "winning team", especially as by definition your loser team is deliberately throwing ten matches a week?Wouldn't it be just as much trouble to get your loser team enough ranking to play against your winner team as it would to just do well on your winning team without cheating in the first place?Also how do you ensure you meet only your loser team?

To #1On our server there was a bit of drama regarding teams playing against 'farm teams' the way they ensured they played against them was to only queue for matches in the early morning, when most people were asleep.

They take their alt teams and get them a decently high ranking (let's not forget, these teams are actually pretty good in Arena).They then queue up at really odd times (like 4am when no one else is on and queuing) so that the only matchup they get is their alt team.There's been all sorts of misbehavior this season: go lookup "queue dodging", "ignore macros" and "win trading" on the general forums to read all the drama.(Personally, I'll earn Rival today. I didn't start arena until 6 weeks ago (2v2 only), and did it in PvE gear, save for the Veteran's Boots/Neck/Ring... I'm pretty proud of that accomplishment. I've banked all my points, and will start S3 with 2 pieces of S3 gear, and enough honor for the second S3 ring, 3 pieces of S1, and something else I haven't decided on yet.)
