I agree that the scale should probably give a premium on winning if vps are going to be used in a 3 way. But our tournament organizer disagrees with this. In direct conversation with him he said that it isn’t fair for a team to get more vps for winning by 3.

I feel like I saw a comment somewhere that a tie is possible with fractional vps or something. But if a tie is reached we automatically win since we beat them in our match vs them.

Ed, what do you mean by “yet”?

Alan, the director told us we won because on the original vp scale we still won. The scale was changed at 9:30 that night for no legal reason(I think).

Shailesh was a captain, and so was Walt.

That is great to hear. If the table result stands then we won. Even with victory points we won the event before it got adjusted to another scale AWAY from the table.

Your right Michael, I shouldn’t have said that. I can always be wrong and there is no reason to say that he is making something up. I just wanted to say that I didn’t experience that, and nobody else that I heard from in the room experienced that either I thought.

I agree that this might be a problem for most. But we were done about 20 minutes early every round and not doing anything important. Also being 15 multitasking and memory isn’t a problem for me.

Wei Pei, are you joking? How could you say that? We all thought if we won both we would win. In fact I believe you said congrats when you saw we won both. We asked the organizer and he told us if we win both we win. I know this is important to you, but it isn’t cool to change the facts… Sherman, it is possible that when you asked Scott he told you the format although I doubt it. Since no such kindness was given to us.

Michael, the reason I would suggest that is true, is because in the COC none is stated or no general rules. The 30 board scale probably is better than the 10 board scale but if they post the results one way they have no legal reason to change it. Also there are many 30 board scales, for example the nabc+ 30 board scale, the 30 vp 30 board scale etc. Nobody would have played differently since no one knew it was scored in vps.

There is no one victory point scale that is “correct”. Therefore it is up to the director, based on what they chose originally there is no reason to change it.

Basically what you are saying is how the top two teams did vs the third place team is what decides the event. Do you really think this makes sense?

But why should this 30 board scale be used.There is the 30 board nabc+ scale, and the 30 board 30vp scale. Also, none are suggested in the COC, so the original SHOULD stay. John Kissinger replied to all of our emails until we made this point. This is because he has no ground to stand on. This is nonsense…

But why should the scale be changed?! There is no scale required to be used in the COC, and this is the only scale we lose on. Your team won the swiss of ONE scale…

I believe that they were they’re but when we asked for them we were not given so it is irrelevant…

Last year, one team made it to day 2 and didn’t earn overall awards. They weren’t happy so they complained and the COC changed. Lol

To be fair, I didn’t asked for it 5 times. It might’ve been given to me. I saw Walt asking who they clearly hate.

I would be happy to do that too. But I’m sure the other team would have nothing to do with that.
