    Agreed. The cage-match analogy actually supports the idea of the swifter combatant attacking first.

    Now, if there was a key word called Ambush, I could see that not working in a cage-match.

    There are many ways Scrabble is different from Hex that render that article useless. The biggest difference is that if a player draws good tiles his opponent is much more likely to draw bad tiles. I...

    The reason luck plays such a large role in Scrabble is that both players are pulling from the same pool. One person getting good letters means their opponent is more likely to get bad letters. So ELO...

    Dumb question, maybe, but why does it matter how accurate ELO is? Don't people just want a daily/weekly/monthly/yearly system that ranks their play relative to others? It's just a matter of setting...

    I know I'm in the minority^2 on this, but what holds me back the most from investing in Hex is that there's too much F2P -- so much that it's completely do-able and somewhat fun to spend absolutely...

    Assuming they're still at GenCon it's reasonable that they'd want servers back up as quickly as possible. It's probably disasterous to have the game be unplayable for one minute in that situation,...

    I was envisioning it as one way to pick up a few points. It wouldn't work if that was the only way to earn QP's or if it was possible to earn QP's through F2P PVP exclusively.

    Once we get more PVE content I think the issue of wanting some sort of reward for free PvP play will diminish, though not entirely.

    That aside, I haven't looked into PRE's, but I assume there are...

    I buy 48. That should last me until set 4.

    My plans could change, though, if this $100,000 tournament gets rolling. I'll be playing more then for sure.

    Once we can get all our commons easily listed that will help. I've never bothered listing a common so I've got plenty to get rid of.

    I thought you'll always be matched quickly to whoever is closest to your record, not the same record? If it doesn't match quickly then it's already failed in its goal of being the format for players...

    Why not aim it at everyone? If you want to drop and collect your rewards because you don't feel playing past 5 wins is worth it, then drop, but it's not necessary to drag everyone down with you with...

    Gauntlet: Going beyond 5 wins

    Even though I won't play it that often, Gauntlet will be popular. The biggest problem I have with it is wins are maxed at 5. As long as the rewards stay arithmetic, I don't see any reason rewards...

    Well, that's fine, but doesn't that contradict the stated goal of not mixing match ups? I doubt it will come up much, though.

    Not really; it had a smiley face. Most likely it hasn't actually been decided yet.

    Shaq, can you comment on what sort of benchmark you'd need to bring 221 back as an available format? For example, if we've got 15 333's firing per hour, would that be an indication that 221 could be...
