We have discussed this many times; MB is a far, far too high in this game. But the people that seem most bitter about it are the teams I have never heard of. I do not hear Cayden or Dropkicks or HBM moaning. Why? Because their teams are that good, they fancy they can beat me even if I play MB.
So yes let's all continue to ask SUBLINET to reduce/remove it, I am all for that, but there is little point turning on each other because it is not happening. The realities are you need play friendlies against good teams, get a whole lot of good strats together, and then you will find with or without MB you start getting somewhere in the game!
I was in the same championship as you and I finished 6th (BB) I can honestly say from about 4 seasons ago I don't use match bonus in any format of the game. If a team plays me and I think MB was used I play a instant friendly. As I did after our game and it was 30 something NIL If MB was removed from the game teams like yours, Mutts nuts, and all the other boosters will show your arse! The only way you can compete is by whacking on the bonus. Look at my schedule, I play 100's of friendlies every week to perfect my team. I would completely understand if you had all buildings Maxed out and had nothing to spend your money on.
Your only cheating yourself!
With all due respect I would say you are cheating yourself. The option is there for everyone, if you choose not to use it, good for you, I am going to take advantage of improving my team by 50%. When the option is taken away or minimised, something that I think should happen, I will have to adapt, but as you suggest I know I will be useless! BB you are pretty decent team, and if you think spending more money on infrastructure over MB is the way forward, good luck, I guess time will tell if you or I are right. Anyway, I look forward to another clash down the line, well done on your promotion.
