: : Hi everyone
: : The 1 match per day rule was implemented several years ago when there were a lot more players around.
: The changes are suggested because of increasing issues lower ranked player climbing to the #2 position before the 1-2 has been played thus forfeiting the chance a 1-2 that day because they had already played. Most recently this happened when Rank 6 made it to #2 before the 1-2. There are no rules protecting #2 position #6 can easily get to #2. The rule for one time a day actually prevented the 1-2 from getting played. Also Rank changes on occasion literally make it impossible for obtaining spot matches. What could have been a spot match is not possible because the players had already played that day.
: ****************So the dwindling # of Players on this is not the Problem b/c I am sure Ranks changed literally in the Zone too? And would you not say this happened on occasion too when the Rules were made from Zone??
: Difference is-- It was dealt with immediately by Ops so there were No Problems.
I agree, back in the day it did take less time for ops to deal with things and we all got along fairly well. Just because there were more on the ladders is no reason to change things..............granted the ops would probably have it easier.
