    Any chance the scoring could be 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw?

    While three points for a win is an incentive to play for a win, it is also an incentive for two players to agree to each resign one game rather than agree to two draws when both games between them are heading for a draw.

    In the above scenario both players walk away with three (3) points for their win/loss rather than two (2) points for their draw/draw.

    To put the last answer into perspective:

    It is much easer to agree on two draws than on two resignations.

    And if the counting was 2-1 people would much easier agree on a shared draw, since nothing was lost against one win and one losss.

    The last one started in May or June, so that is my guess?

    This is quite correct. The incentives are indeed 'corrupting'. I freely admit that, in past Championships (ie the only two I've entered), I've agreed deals for two draws by 'winning' one and 'losing' the other. An element of trust is required. But it's not great. And I'm not the only one to recognise this flaw in the 3-1-0 model

    Maybe you should send feedback.

    Or you could try to post in the GF asking people to give thums up. Maybe then the powers that bew would go for it?
