    I'm surprised that nobody has posted about this little development in the Olympics yesterday:

    The problem was China didn't want its two pairings in women's doubles to play each other until the final, so the winner could get gold and the runner-up silver, adding to the pile of medals China hopes will see it finish ahead of the United States when the games end.

    ...by playing so abjectly that spectators booed and hissed, "Off, off, off," the players worked not to win but to engineer losses in their last group matches. And they did that because losing could secure them more desirable matchups later in the competition, when those all-important medals are on the line.

    This was a train wreck waiting to happen.

    So is that the lesson here? If you must throw a match, be subtle about it?

    This pretty much mirrors the metagame from AT9 last year. It's funny to see that the Olympic committee has to deal with the same problems as CCP.

    well, except straight away the Olympic people went "this is bad", whereas at the time CCP were encouraging underhand tactics.

    See GD Olympic/day thread, already did it there

    Basically IDG why they let countries have more than 1 team for that sport as well as that match system. At least CCP only let 1 official team per alliance.
