Hm, just my thoughts. A bunch of you say it's cheap that the rule was 1 win and your asked to move aside. Also that we got to pick our maps/settings. Well, i've seen in a handful of multiplayer games, that all the community members said "Hey, lets team up on the mod, and eliminate them first". Kinda low...

lol... we all know the mods will win because of all those "join only if your a freemium" or "PM me so i can look at your low score before you join" games. ;)

All fun and games. =D>

Maybe in the future, we can factor in some sort of "Home Court/Field/Pitch" advantage, based on the previous years results and winning side... who knows!

Really? That's incredibly poor sportsmanship by those players.

I whac'd the mod in Game 6985371, and he happened to be the first one out, but it wasn't community collusion.

Still, if it had been, it's technically "fair" as long as such collusion is stated in game chat; and the mods have to know that that's going to happen with any whac-a series.

But those who think that they required a pm for password and tried to hold games for freemiums in order to assure "mods win"... I don't think so. In past and this Whac-a series, mods were willing to try to accommodate special request games, provided the player requesting wasn't trying to hog the wins to the exclusion of other players' chance to get a whac medal.

If every win count I have one for the community :D

Game 6984560

P.S. Maybe we should calculate points in the next whac instead of wins...

Your P.S. is a very good idea. Calculating points instead of wins would help to quell the complaints about mods picking and choosing their opponents for easy wins. You don't get many points for beating a cook.
Would Map Rank or something like it be able to chart points in Whac-A-Mod tournament games and total things up for mods and muggles?
