Also, why is there one tournament that scored people over 190 points, but no other tournament scores over 105 ish?
If its cedar creek and because of the # of people, then maybe there should be an adjustment to the points system. IF players miss this one tournament, then there is no way to be competative in the points race. Maybe it should be excluded from MST next year, or add Majestic & northstar so there are multiple chances to earn this level of points...
Awesome Carl, you hit it right on the head. After the entire season, it is really nice to see where I finished on the points race standings.
Thank you for the consideration of looking into the points calculations. I didnt know there were events that earned double points, but that makes since to me now.
Thanks for everything you and the MFA do.
So, when can I expect an update?
I agree with Mike; if you can't make those championships it makes it impossible to compete. Not everyone can make every event so if someone can't make that one event they would have to beat everybody else by almost 100 points in all the other events to be able to have a chance at winning. Just a thought since there are so many other incentives to make the championship that getting double points really isn't fair to those who couldn't make it when they competed for the entire rest of the season.
I apologize in my delay getting back to you in a timely manner. Between getting a new year underway the holidays have done a number on my schedule. As I'm sure it has everyone else's.
We had addressed the MST and MDS additions that needed to be made and will be posted in the Winter Floater. We are hoping to have this out tomorrow.
The reason for the doubling of MST and MDS points of these events is to make them a draw and an event that shouldn't be missed. We may tool around with the idea of changing this in 2014 but no promises. If we do change it back to standard points we may make it an member exclusive event. Yes, meaning you'd have to be a current MFA member to play.
Chris, please read my letter from the President in the upcoming Floater. I address this briefly. No one on the board was happy about this. I hope you have also approached Timmy Gill and told him how disappointed you were that you couldn't collect MST points at these events. We are going to be putting in new standards this year to provide us ample (30 days or greater) notice to our members if an event has to change. We hope this doesn't happen again.
