and if it doesnt seem to work, we change it again.
What I dont like about in game handicaps for tournament use is how a player can be penalised for a great round.
my example to this is myself. I was HC 0 when we started the April AGGOT. I shot a second round 6 under (awesome round) and went to HC -3 and adding that to my even card for round meant I was even card for my average (-6 and 0 = -3 which was my new HC). Then I shot a 3 under so my combined score went to -3 (HC -3 meant my -6 and -3 gave me a -3 for the tourny). Then silly me shot a -4 and my handicap dropped to -4 which meant my -6 round and my -4 only meant I was -2 for the tourny. So the better I played, the worse my overall score was. Had I gone back and shot a -5 I would not have been joint winner on HC which would not have reflected how my game has improved.
LOL did that story make any sense at all?
So I think the better player deserves to win (like Blues) but I think we need to attempt to counter the stats difference due to the levels. Is it fair that Blues only gives me 1 shot. I think so as he is the better player and doesnt deserve to be knobbled just cos he plays the game well. Like you said, we cant try it and see how it goes. tweaking it if necessary for the future
