Re: TOC seeding lllll_Jewels_lllll     2/12/2004 20:23

I think you're missing the point (and I wonder how you would feel if you were on the other side of the equation often, and I mean that respectfully).

Random seeding doesn't allow players to "avoid playing the best players in the early Rounds," it gives them at least a chance of facing an equally-rated player. "Chance" being the operative word there ... there still exists a great chance that they'll have to play the highest rated player anyway (but there's also a chance that one high-rated player will take out another high-rated player early on ... yippeeeee!).

Isn't this the same reason why we use a new table for the start of every match? To level the playing field? This way, no one knows before the tourney begins how they'll end up once the wheel is spun.

Question: Why did the league introduce random seeding to begin with? Answer: So that the most talented, experienced players didn't ALWAYS walk off with the yeps. So that everyone OCCASIONALLY had an equal chance at the start of the tourney to win. So that it wouldn't automatically discourage people from playing because they felt they had no chance at all. Lord knows there are enough things going on in pool that already contribute to that feeling, why compound it?

Why be in business then? To lower the membership rather than increase it? To only provide constant satisfaction and enjoyment for a small group of people? I would think not ...

Looks like I'm down 500 yeps now :-)
