Look, in all my years in eliters I have never seen a stupider and more inconsistent rule than the MISBID and the game is forfeited rule. We all have misbid before. EVERYONE DOES IT. Some nights I play 8 or nine tourneys..
It gets late. Stuff happens... WE ALL SCREW UP. WE MISBID..The most seasoned players do it..Yahoo invented the skip hand button just for this reason. NOW LOOK..I know you'll say : its a rule...I know , I know, read the rules...BUT ask yourself this ...DO YOU REALLY READ THE RULES EVERY TIME..???for every match...when your favorite td is tding...? BALONEY...
HAVE YOU NEVER MISBID IN A CLOSE MATCH ?
LOOK; ON TOP OF ALL THIS :ITS A DUMB RULE
say it: Three times :
1) ITS A DUMB RULE
2) ITS A DUMB RULE
3) ITS A DUMB RULE
NOBODY BENEFITS FROM THIS RULE..BECAUSE:
It creats resentment in a close match..It causes people to not want to P up..It affords the chance that some people will be distracted and loose a otherwise close match to a lesser team....SAY YOUR Partner MISBIDS..say its a close match..like the THE NO NILL GAME IN PARTICULAR...Why not have a skip hand or a aotomatic minus 100..LIKE IN OTHER LEAGUES?
WHY EVEN HAVE A LEAGUE THAT PLAYS OTHER TYPES OF GAMES SUCH AS NO NILLS, MIRRORS, BID 3 OR MORE
IF YOU HAVE MISBID RULESTHAT ARENT CONSISTENT, oR THAT SOME TDS ENFORCE AND OTHERS DONT...a SENIR ADMIN FROM ELITERS Has agreed on this with me...Why make any rule based on a misbid THAT MAKEs FOR an AUTOMATIC DISQUALIFICATION ?
SO..LOOK.. LIKE IN OTHER LEAGUES, and with SOME OF THE TDS HERE IN THIER GAMES:
IF YOU MISBID YOU GET ONE CHANCE TO REDEEM for the team...OR you get -100 PONTS.
Or something... BUT MAKE IT CONSISTENT TO ALL THE TDS and all the games...NOT SOME of them..
WHY END THE MATCH? Penalize the player or team maybe...YOU KNOW IM RIGHT ABOUT THIS...IT'S STUPID...WHY NOT HAVE A ONE SCREW UP PER GAMRE or a certain amount per month...Keep the RULE ON EVERY TOURNEY NO MATTER WHAT THE GAME... Some tds post that rule, 1 misbid..Others donít.
This is inconsistent. ITS STUPID TO LOOSE A TOURNEY BECAUSE OF A MISBID... NO MATTER WHO DOES IT...
And dont give me the Lowell, pay attention, read the rules crap...That is crap..We all like to play and have fun..sometimes we make mistakes and misbid...We all like freindly competition...SO CHANGE THE POLICY....MAKE IT ONE SCREW UP PER TEAM SO NOBODY WINS OR LOOSES BECAUSE OF ONE Stupid MISBID..I see a nill hand..I bid nill..Its force of habit...So make the rule consistent for all players, not enforced by some tds and not others...SIMPLE...EASY...
