: Just my thoughts
: Players inability to get a match is also why there are so many Voluntary Rank Reductions.
: A player has 3 days to get the spot match--either get to #1 or drop to #6 in that time.
: If you wanna be in top 5 then you should be keeping an eye on your rank---and follow the Rules
: This rule has been around a long time----- - Why change a Rule that has been around since Inception--It was already changed to Top 5 from Top 10 to accommodate the dwindling number of Members
: -Now those who figure they'd rather toss out a Rule because they can't get it done in 3 days and/or don't want to VRR. So big deal does it really mean that much to you? Perhaps it does that's why all the fuss when it happens to somebody "New" for the first time - -
: This is when this Issue comes forth--All I can say- -"Been there done that"--Get over it.
: Many of us either VRR or are Rung to Rank 25--What's the difference--Pride- -I guess. --rank 25 is rank 25--(or in beajay60's case rank 50)- -back to the Top the next day or two .
: Is the purpose of the Ladder to just play for rank or are we here to have fun and play cribbage?--That is the Paradox!- -
: Yes we all want to have FUN and PLAY cribbage - -however this is a LADDER room- -NOT--A SOCIAL room---------The LADDER is a Competitive Room where of course everyone is playing for Rank-----Have you ever been in the Rated rooms?
: If you're here to chat and talk among other players just be aware there is a Rank aspect involved which has Rules and Consequences if not followed.
Exactly the sort of response I would expect from her.
I'd rather just play anyone and everyone and not have to wait for my "spot"...
But perhaps that is just me, it's time to see what the majority think.
It seems like an archaic rule to me.
Things change....not as many games played ,even less when one has to refuse games and wait for their "spot"
There are many things that simply change over time and older rules seem silly .
Did you know that it is illegal to drag a dead horse through town ?
Probably wasn't such a silly rule in the 1800's , but it sure seems silly now.
The "spot match rule" is silly...
I really wonder who has the time to go through all the results to see who may have missed a spot match...
Oh wait , if you really dislike the person...you might check...I'll admit there is one person,I may keep an eye on....
