RL is a JOKE!

Postby Stajus » 04 Sep 2009, 12:12

Ok, right, here we go...RL is severely misused on this Tour. Here's what RL should REALLY constitute:

1. If the two players have spoken several times on msn and could not arrange the time to play, the RL is appropriate as long as they both agree. If one of them disagrees, they should still find a way to play, at least a set, or a match with tie-breaks.

2. Highly seeded players not coming online (apart from 2 mins per day) until Friday each week such that they can find themselves in QF is a fraud. This is not what RL is intrinsically for.

3. Players avoiding to play in order to force an RL, and asking for a rematch because they haven't set their stats correctly, or because they are nervous due to the lag, or some other invalid reason, should lose by W.O. automatically if they leave the match.

Feel free to add to this topic.

Oh, and no RLs should be done before the deadline. Duh, common sense.

Well, I created RL, I created that only for high pings and unplayable games, if 2 people don't shown then we can't make a RL for one buddy, it's unfair :evil:

Yeah, RL is necessary and useful for some situations, I agree. But RL, as it is used currently, is a joke :D If you see what I mean... :yes:

Mods have to do RL only when both of the players are agree or they aren't online, but never when someone want to play and someone don't want to play (yes, I'm saying it cause I wanted to play against Weeka)... It's crazy and ridicolous to lose by RL when you do want to play and your opponent complains about the lag... maybe an alternative is to play only tie-breaks...

I think RL is not a joke. Its bad in this conception. The bad with it is the adventage. If a seeded ranked player didnt want to play with an unseeded player cuz the lag RL is coming...The seeded has an adventage and the seeded won...I think if the 1st or the 2nd or 3rd or 4th etc. seeded has to make RL nad there is no chances for the unseeded player...Thats why its a joke now...
I think:
If 1 player shows up and the other not its wo for the player who shows up.
If both players show up but they cant play (lag or cant arrange the match etc.) they play 3 set tiebreaks or do an RL without adventage... example: Zuzana vs Bobi... Zuzana is seeded, bobi is not. They were up on MSN but they cant play do an RL without adventage.
Its my opinion...
We have to give 50% to the best and the worst player... :evil: :x :( :cry: :oops: :roll: :wink: :oops: :o :shock: :? :) :lol: 8-) :D :mrgreen:

My opinion is that RL is just retardet i mean who thought of this rule? theres alot of people i can beat that i lose to because of RL and it should be if the person who aint showing up should lose. maybe theyre online different times but when i lost rl quarter final pissed me off alot since i had been on the whole week...
