Well, I've tried it, and I want to express my opinion of the current way it's set up.
We all discussed what the match points should be when it first started. The consensus among the advanced players was that it should be 9+ points per match. It is common knowlege that a 7 point match live is considered a "crap shoot" as the dice can stay hot for one player that long.
I realize that time is a huge factor for most of us, and i prefer 3335 tourneys personally, when you have 3 or 4 rounds to complete. And when home for lunch, it's fun to jump in a 1112 and be done in 30 minutes.
But for an event as important as the EDS is, as it stands now, it is just a two week crap shoot with no significant meaning as to the skill level of any one player.
We have lost a number of advanced players to another
league and the EDS could be the tool to get them back. But with only 7 point matches, that won't happen. So hopefully, admin will reconsider trying 9 points for a period to see how it works.
I personally find it more frustrating than fun at 7 points.
Just my thoughts. Good gaming to all, and thanks to all the TD's who work so hard to give all of us an enjoying place to play.
