Considering there will be 5 TBs in whatever format that should reduce the chances of eliminating players losing by ranking. Try and convince me it's fair that a player should lose cause of their ranking?
Set ratio isn't perfect and neither is PTS, cause what happens if the set ratios are the same, then what is the fallback position?
People are making decisions without reading any of the debate that led to this poll. *sigh*
WHO IS SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT LETTING PEOPLE WIN BY RANKING? People have said time and time over that it's awful, we get it. Under no system should that happen anymore. Now let's move on.
Set ratio and then 2 tbs in the first round, in every other round CBs. As little PTS as possible. I am not pulling this system out of my ass. Other TT games use set ratio/score combination. If anything our game would be fairer than WTAW because they don't use PTS scoring all the time. Do you play PTS GWH? In many first rounds we have to pick 7 matches to predict. That's only 2 more matches than in TT. It's becoming a very similar game, the only difference is league table vs. knockout format.
