I voted to switch to sequential. I didn't realize there were freestyle rounds (or I probably wouldn't have joined). Don't take me out though, if I make it to round two I can handle a freestyle game.

I'm glad your being cool about it but i want to be totaly clear with you and anyone else who might have a simmalier concern.

Round 2 is a 16 team bracketed playoff . Which means a team could have up to 4 games in round 2.

If a player is worried that a freestyle game would ruin their record..... remember its single elimination so you could loose only 1 game so you have a stop loss of sorts. So it would be only one loss you could attribute to freestyle play.

Thank you all!

to be honest i'd prefer all round to be sequential rather than freestyle.

A sentament I understand. I want a freestyle round to shake out any game play issues that might arise from this new map. For example i think a clever freestyle player could realy exploit the alternating bonuses. I want to see if there are some players who are so crafty that weaker players are utterly caught with their pants down.

Ill be in as well, the map looks awesome.

Though I also would prefer if we had no freestyle, too many loopholes that I hate to see win a game because of.

The thing is, this map will have been up for long enough by the time round 2 gets around that there will have been many freestyle games played on it. This map seems to be really popular, so there are going to people playing freestyle in all its different forms. You'll find out about any issues, if there are any.

By the way, I agree with DiM.

Its a fair point. I'm going to let this poll run for a bit (even though the outcome seems clear at this point). after that I'll look into changing round 2. So hang with me everybody.

Some suggested that they really hated all the freestyle rounds. so I put up a pool and it turned out that the overwhelming number of votes was for "freestyle blows" (I'm paraphrasing)

So I've cowed to the will of the voters and have changed round 1 to standard. leaving only round 2 as freestyle.

Three of you said if i changed it you'd wimp out and not even try for the free prizes. I'm sorry to loose you. PM me or post here and I'll remove your name. If you pm me I promise to be discrete.
