    providing that they also win the most games
    it would be possible for a clan to lose every challenge and still earn top spot on the ladder
    some might say this is wrong but I like it
    it's games, not challenge wins, that count and that's the way it should be
    my opinion for what it's worth
    sorting by gross points is already there
    just make it the final word
    it's so simple and so fair

    I'll try to explain this to you in simple English.

    2 clans agree to a 10 player challenge, i.e. 20 games.

    One clan wins 11 games, the other wins 4.
    5 games are still in progress.
    The challenge points are only awarded once every game in the challenge is completed.
    But the challenge has already been decided in favor of the clan with 11 wins.
    Irregar ...[text shortened]... 5 games in either scoring system, net or gross, if they want the collect the points right away.
    I don't think the losing clan in a gross points system should get zero point
    if they win 1,2,3 and so on they should get that number of points
    at the end of the year the clan that wins the most games sits on top of the ladder
    winning or losing a challenge would not matter
    a clan that wins a hundred games in the year would get 100 points no matter how many games they lost
    it's all about winning games not challenges
    every game is equal and every game matters
    no dumping
    joy for everyone

    Its not. Look back years ago at results.
    It has always been challenge v challenge when ever any side won over 50% of the games it was over.
    Numerous ideas were put forward including bonus points per each game won on top of who won the challenge.
    Again this was not supported as it would just help the clans playing the most games.
    Might not sound fair but ...[text shortened]... enough for me on the subject.
    I will no doubt be back after tadger pathetically baits me again.

    A 10 v 10 in gross points is still 20 points to the winner no matter if its 20-0 or 11-9. Just no points taken off the losers
    The system was changed to net it was meant to reward better quality chess not just a clan who could in theory lose more challenges than they win and be top.
    The game dumping you are against ...[text shortened]... own the amount of challenges a clan can do.
    Changing back to gross points will not change that.
    gross points does make every game count because it is not based on winning the challenge but rather winning the most games, hence every game counts

    the list of those regretting whatever is zero and VR is still not a suspect
    only a confession would change the direction of the investigation

    Again you never answer a question .
    I am happy with the current system
    You want change so the ball is in your court.
    Why is gross points better.
    Remember it was your hero robbie that campaigned to get it changed to net points.
    I actually agree with you on something but get a childish reply.
    And you wonder why no one supports you.
    gross points
    makes every game count
    eliminates dumping
    no negative points are given

    I accept the current system
    everybody plays by the same rules
    I think it can be improved

    VR was not suspected because the crime required cunning and physical strength

    I want your opinion of tadgers idea. The dumbass was idiotic enough to put it on site ideas.....epic fail.

    I do agree with what you said on another thread i have been saying it for years only ONE CLAN PER PLAYER.

    Plus it should not be allowed for a clan to change its name unless there is a new leader
    take it to the complaint department spanky

    Now can i please have your opinion on the tadgers site idea
    I am a proponent of simply using gross points as the determining factor
    padger's proposal differs as does yours
    I don't agree with anyone who does not agree with me
