th-child,i understand that u don't agree with the final kill,it's logic to be honest.But,in case of a tie,u really think that a guy who has dominated over 4 out of 5 games shouldn't have an advantage,a slight advantage over the one who dominated nowhere?
The league is about the killing and i love that,but the whole risk concept is dominating the whole world,so a slight combination should be nice,...that's my opinion

Not just because I'm biased in the current league, but I have to agree with th-child. You play a game differently when you're not necessarily looking to win the whole thing. In a merc game, I will gladly spread myself thin and make myself easy to kill if, in the process, I'm able to kill a highly ranked opponent. In this tourney, it was less about the snowballing effect of turning in multiple times on a turn, and more about the poise of knowing when to go for the kill and when not to.

I think the different gameplay styles are what make the site fun.

Kerv, it's not a bad idea actually but I am generally against changing the rules mid-competition. A tie will result in a split pot. I'm also of the opinion that in this particular league it's definitely more about the kill than the win, so that would've been taken into account by people when they were planning their tactics. As the others have already said.

I tend to think with Escalate that the people with the most kills will also win a higher percentage of their games than with Escalite.

Nice one! I guess my one was deemed too crappy for the site LOL. Although if I ever win I Want It.

As it is, Dorcee is due this prize as she can't be caught.

And with Ironztigers passing goes any chance of 2nd place being disturbed.

360 points go to Kerver73 and Chesebr3 - I'll ask for them to be sent ASAP.

I'm definitely in for a No Reinforce League Title! However, since No Reinforce games are more niche than anything else, I certainly understand if not as many people would be on board for it.

(Of course, that just means there'll be less people trying to jump in and hog the spots!)

They'd definitely have to be Escalate games, though. Flat Rate, No Reinforce games would take forever to get anywhere!
