good post, I of course wanted to add some to it as well.
To recap Admirarch:
I think adding the capability to have 15 min matches is a great idea. ThatAdmirarch [edited for shortness] wrote: Proposition: There should be the option of playing matches which last for 15
minutes instead of the usual 30.
Fewer matches will be called of because people don't have enough time.
More matches can be played!
In matches with highly uneven teams the matches will be less frustrating for
both the teams winning and losing heavily.
At least in my experience, matches are often fairly evenly fought until one
team takes a significant advantage in the second half as concentration slips,
15 minute matches could well lead to more competitive matches.
This is bound to cause confusion and even conflict when players favor
different match lengths.
It makes match scores meaningless.
Possibly some argument about ratings which don't really strike me as
significant could be applied.
way it is possible to play a nice quick match for practice. But I do not
think it should be made into any sort of official match type. First against
is the same as Admir's first two down sides. Another is that there have been
many a match that has had a turnover in the last half of the game. To shorten
the match would affect many outcomes.
I am not sure how wide spread it is, but there has been talk of using maps
other than the ducati map for matches. My opinion is that duacti is ducati,
adding in other maps really is not what the league is about. The league is
about mastering one style of map, and playing as well as we can on that
