Previous thread about teams sandbagging or purposely losing matches ?

I remember seeing a thread talking about teams purposely losing matches or sandbagging until after the qualification rounds so that they can set up the alliances they want. I can’t find it now and was wondering if anyone remembers it or when so I can find it. In tournament this weekend we had teams go 0-6 and they got picked for playoff rounds and were very good. My understanding is that they do lousy in qualifying on purpose so no one picks them for playoff EXCEPT the team they plan to alliance with for playoffs.

Anyone who can help me find that thread , it will be appreciated.

I’ve managed to find a thread that was about sandbagging in a competition last year

Here’s the link (the word sandbagging is highlighted in blue):
