Protein Wars Removal of fake votes

Protein Wars III, Round 2: Fake votes identified and removed

. The two battles that we’ve had to adjust are BSN versus RSP Nutrition, and Beast Sports versus Muscle Elements. Regardless of what you saw if you caught the final results this morning before they were removed, the actual winners and percentages are BSN with Syntha-6 on 51%, and Muscle Elements with the Truth on 55%.

and their previous case on another online retailer:

RSP encouraging unrealistic reviews at Bodybuilding.com

forums an image has been posted of an email from RSP Nutrition. In it are steps from the brand to team members about using a $50 gift card and their BodySpace account to purchase trial sizes of CreAde, Quadralean and DyNO. After that the email says to wait a day, something that is highlighted and enforced in capitals, then rate each product a 10/10.

The Protein Wars are a joke bc so many companies do this. Didn't RSP beat out Select in the first round? Yeah on what planet is that feasible.

If they go by taste I can see Select getting beat by everyone, profile great but taste horrible.

Saying that, I just bought another tub of Select Vanilla :p

Sometimes taste is not the factor
Just like in the Olympia awards in Vegas for the other site it's based off sales . Where if RSP had to go vs sales in some of the other major brands they would get destroyed

Some brands may not be the best tasting for example ON but since they dominate the international market their sales and reputation are much higher

That is why those forums are straight TRASH. I browse them once in a while, but never post bc of **** like that, the constant rep spam and it being filled to the brim with a bunch of morons. #AM4Lyfe

If we talking about PES Select so yes, horrible taste! I haven't tried all of them but those I tried have been undrinkable except Vanilla that's ok.

I only getting Vanilla from PES because of reliable profile, not because of taste.

Hahah man I think you're crazy but one thing we can agree on is even if I didn't like the taste of Select, I would still use it as my day-to-day protein simply on the strength of its profile.

With Vanilla I can at least mask the horrible taste with mix ins :p

No tricks here... the majority of this forum has tried and is now fans of Select.

As are other boards,
Myself and over a dozen family members,
Every friend I have let sample,
And anyone with working tastebuds IMO ;)

I only use Select when I can get it for around $10/Lb, if not, I custom blend my own from RawDynamix. But the Vanilla *is* one of the best I've tasted, have to be honest. Different strokes I guess.

Shady as hell company. But one of many that got caught again. Would not even support a shady company like that. I wouldn't even touch their protein no matter how good it tastes. There are so many forum nut huggers cling and support those types of shady companies SMH.

Them trying to pimp their protein in the bb.com forum challenge. LOL yeah we were busted before but our chit tastes good.

Myself and my non fitness family and friends have tried Select and enjoyed them all. I even gave a tub of CNC to my sister from my compensation stash when she came to visit for my wedding.

yes, have had them all and was probably the first e-tailer to sell Select.

I was almost burned at the stake for comparing Select Snickerdoodle to XF Cinnamon roll.

Except, it says in the post that most brands involved had fake votes cast for them, and then that it affected the outcomes of those two contests only, and that blame doesn't go to any brand individually.

Seems pretty disingenuous to try and frame the topic as 'RSP cheats' and not 'People participating in anonymous online polling cheat'

most people on bb.com feel that RSP stuff was all a farce. I know for a fact that MANY supplement companies fake their reviews. Just start watching some of the new stuff dropping and their corresponding links on said website. Next thing you know 15 people who rate only said companies product will post a 10 rating.

I got disgusted with protein wars rather quickly this year. I'm sure MTS got a big boost so everyone wants a piece of that

I've been warned not to say anything though cause you will get banned talking about anything shady done by a supplement company..

I've yet to have any of them. I can't justify spending that much on protein when MyProtein is 1/4 the price and has some pretty solid flavors - albeit some aren't so solid.

I was a part of a team that was sponsored by a company that told us to go on this and that site to give thier products a good rating... sad but true... I bet all site that sell stuff have the same.

I agree. You may get into rabid debates, but there is no censorship/shady stuff. If you stick to the rules, you can say anything, whether it's popular or not. It's called integrity - nice to see here... I don't go "there" except for the occasional purchase when there is a really good deal.

You can speak fairly freely if you're not a rep there though. Just don't use any personal attacks. However, as a rep you're highly filtered.

That being said, I'll refrain from commenting on the whole ordeal as I represent a company ;)

Protein wars has always sort of been a clusterfk. Some of the match ups early knock out good proteins that don't stand a chance again brands that have a cult following. I like the idea of it, but it needs to be set up differently.

You can speak freely till you say something that could damage another company's sales. I would not post anything about them stuffing the ballots on there.

This is not what experience indicates. Have seen plenty of threads that hurt companies' sales get closed and comments from non-reps which might result in the same outcome get deleted by mods.

In fact, I have gotten mod negged for calling out this behavior in a respectful and civil way.
