Not just throwing games but also "pick on the tournament leader" even when they are not in the lead in a particular game.Gozar wrote: Excellent comment from banana_hammocks, throwing games does go on all the time in tournaments.

While I appreciate that tournament games require a slightly different mentality than isolated casual games, anything that encourages rule-breaking should be discouraged.... If somebody discovers some form of abuse (secret alliances, account-sharing, throwing games) that yields success in a game where that behaviour is permitted, there is nothing to stop them committing the same abuse in other games.
Here are some ready-made excuses:
- This thread says that it is fine to make truces/alliances through PMs
- My friend showed me theses games he won using the same tactics, and he got a medal for it.
- I'm playing in a tournament which allows that behaviour, I thought I was playing one of those games.
