Mutual PiC

From Hattrick

A Mutual PiC is an agreement between two teams to Play it Cool for one of the upcoming matches, and thus improve both teams' Team Spirit. When someone agrees to a Mutual PiC, they are trusting that the other person will follow through. More often than not users who attempt a Mutual PiC are surprised to find that the other manager didn't follow through. Mutual PiCs are common in National Team play, where Team Spirit management is crucial. Perhaps the most famous case of a failed Mutual PiC came in the World Cup VI match between België and USA, dubbed the "Scroll Wheel Incident." Mutual PiCs are slowly dying because users have realized that they just can't trust each other in that area of the game. This is an example of the prisoner's dilemma.

The ethics of the Mutual PiC have been an occasional hot topic in the conferences. Some users consider such arrangements to be evil.
