How can you justify if it s made on purpose or not unless the opponent says so?
In our case llama expressed that he would slow the game as much as possible because we are winning, but otherwise...

I thought it was just another pissing contest between the two trouble makers.

Would you call this Vindictive then?

Problem is......
I see this happen all the time in clan games.
People seem to drag out the remaining games to protect their
rank points and eventual loses.

Just finished a clan quads game were the other clan missed
5-6 turns in the final stages......now that's taking sand bagging to the extreme.
Highly rep clan too =/

Clans have 24 hours to take the turn. That won’t be changing

No, my question is that if you foe someone so that you won't have to put up with them potentially sandbagging some games, will you just have to deal with it when it comes to clan or tournament games?

Yes, clan + tournament ignores foe lists.

Exactly how would "sandbagging" be defined? Please use objective criteria, not feelings or imagined player intentions.
Exactly what penalty would you suggest for violating those criteria?
