"""Waspy Tiger""" :
The deciding factor could the number of matches played to get to 10 all. The guild that has played the fewer matches wins.
Lots of guilds deliberately lose games to maximise gate receipts, so they would lose out.
Wow. That is such a weak and ridiculous response.
Isn't that exactly the kind of loophole that were it closed it would make for a better game?! Encouraging tanking is crazy...[/quote]
Well it should be read with my previous statement in mind - I can't see anything wrong with draws in principle, and I can't see what's wrong with taking advantage of the way the game works, especially as by losing games both sides benefit in cash - certainly can't see how it would be better to stop that in this case.
The issue isn't draws in themselves, but the frequency of them, in my opinion. Look at what the US did with football in the 70s - had penalty shootouts at the end of drawn games, because they didn't think Americans could cope with draws. That kind of dumbing down didn't drive that game forward then, and I don't believe it would really help now. A well-earned draw is very satisfying. The emphasis should be on "well-earned".
