AO is my favourite slam in terms of atmosphere but they severely degraded the quality of play with that swamp of a surface.

At least it's always been that way. When they turn a surface which has to help offensive players into a pushers' paradise, you know it's wrong.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
