Now thats just greedy
I am pretty sure you only get 8 'bonus' points if you advanced a group last round - if you are already in 1st division - then you have not advanced. The only way to get the bonus points is to lose - fall back to 2nd division - then win 2nd division - then come 1st or 2nd in 1st division the following round.
Clear as Mud.
The main aim of the bonus point system was to even out the fact that the original round 0 of the tournament put us in divisions. Given that system was not perfect, it allowed for a good player to have a bad round (and end up in a lower division) - and still have a chance for the overall tournament.
Now that the divisions are settling down - I dont expect many bonus points - especially in the top few divisions.
But watch out for Pitor - he is 'advancing' to 1st division and will be hungry for the bonus points. - as will I if I ever manage to get into 1st division
Luck and skill may have deserted me and I am'languishing' in 2nd division - but am eager to finally earn my stripes -with the arrival of fresh blood from cream of the crop of 3rd division and the poor souls demoted from 1st division.
BRING ON CRATEUS - at least it has an $18 (not that I expect many people will be foolish enough to go for it until they are winning already) at least it is there in spirit.
This map is a bit larger than the last few and will take a few more turns to win me thinks
TIGER - WHEN DOES THE NEXT ROUND START PLEASE -need to catch up on my sleep before the mayhem begins
OK OK - I am bored - no one is playing my games and I dare not start any more in fear of being swampped in the next round - forgive the long post.'
