Sandbagging a neutral term? Laughable.
like you say this is irrelevant to the long term damage done by a matchmaker that gives too much advantage to the wrong things, but thats a perpendiclar issue as you put it.
EDIT: look it up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandbagging

lets be honest, if you found a website that had a picture of you, with the caption OPTIMISER, it would be niether here not there. If on the other hand you saw your smiling face with the caption SANDBAGGER, well you would not be thrilled.
if anything that definition, which is skill based, applies to permabasing. And I would not use that term, as I dont feel the desperate need to insult others or paint them in a negative light.

Sandbagging is a loose term used to describe hiding true abilities. Engineers are able to hide abilities from the MM and therefore are sandbaggers. Is it a derogatory term, yes it is but engineering does fit the definition. They may not be hiding anything from other players but are able to fool the MM and its the MM that needs to be fooled to gain any advantage. Just because its a derogatory term doesnt make it untrue.
