I haven't made any call. I was trying to find a better solution that wouldn't divide the TT players in half and I didn't see many players objecting to it.

Set ratios lead by one at the moment, as we can't accept the vote of 'stebs', who to my knowledge hasn't played TT ever before here in MTF.

Re: PTS or Set Ratios as TB method?

may the forum moderators spend some of their time checking out stebs's account.. and see if it matches with any of the IP add of the current member.. and maybe find out a idiot who is cheating

thanks!

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.

yeah! when you play 8 matches (for example) it's a lot more logical the decider to be your general performance in the day (aka. 5 SR TB's ) and not the lucky numbers in just one match. Although I'm a hardcore-fan of SR I agree with savestheday91, the suggested compromise will do the job for now and I'll be satisfied... and in the next off-seasons after re-discussing everything can come to the right place
