I like the overall idea, but the downside of that is that at least one player is happy to steer all games into draws...
(not that we're seeing much else now)
Note that I don't mind the number of draws per se. Especially since some were hard-fought. But let's be honest. We all want to see more decisive games. Unfortunately, at these time controls the good guys are TOO good. And maybe chess is a drawn game after all. Who said that playing well is more important than playing white?!
Alternative idea, play games at approximately double the speed (half the time). Then the current date span allows 24 games at 2 games a day. There will be more errors, which should lead to more decisive games. I hope it will also wear out these guys a little more, so it get's more interesting by the end of the match. Furthermore, 24 games will allow a little more margin for error in the first games, so hopefully players would take more risks. And more chances to test each others opening preparation.
