I had hoped this situation would have been resolved by now but since it has not time to bring it to the forum.
I know of 2 players that belonged to a team that one was kicked 24 hours prior to the end of the event and the second was kicked after the race but before he could collect the prizes. The first player has chosen to quit the game being frustrated his efforts to help the team win were worthless. The second has contacted SP hoping to collect his reward which did include the team monster and individual reward for fourth place. The response received indicated it was not responsible for the lead or co lead who may have kicked for poor performance and there was a policy in place where teams were not allowed to kick active players in the later part of the race. First....most of the team was kicked and it is my understanding that 3 players did not receive their rewards which they were due. Second...the policy of not kicking active players during the last half of the race is worthless if they are kicked immediately after the race. The effect is the same...they were used to obtain a win and lost the rewards. For Social Point to refuse to resolve this issue is indicative that they care little for fair play between the players. I believe there are policies in place that fair play is required but laughable if SP does not support them.
Please help players in this situation to resolve this issue and place a 24 hour moratorium on players being kicked after the race so that they may have time to collect their rewards.
