Arena tournament: Sandbagging?

  • #1

    I’ve noticed this a few times while playing arena, there’s players typically rated in low 100-900 who have relatively new accounts who often have either thrown games or resign to get to that rating. Is there a point to this sandbagging? Not sure if I quite understand why others are doing this?

    Titled players should not be allowed to play or host arena games.

    It’s pretty weird that someone would take the time to do that.

    Heh! I just played a bullet arena tournament the other day where a player rated 436 or something won the tournament with 77 points. I was a little embarrassed when this player crushed me like a bug, but then I saw then final score! No, nothing fishy about that. .....

    Ego feed.

    Low self-esteem.

    Lazy.

    Take your pick.
