yup, I confirm, this poll was not a democratic vote, only a public consultation...
The final answer can't be only decided by this poll, coz :
1- 117ms Delay is fundamentally bad, as it changes the way to play too much from the offline mode, which is unnecessarily when the ping is low, and this prevent newcomers to have any decent level & fun when playing the Online Tour
2- the 117ms Delay rule has been applied since several months, without my consent coz hidden from me (while some pep invoking it were telling their opponent I was the one enforcing it ), so an undetermined number of pep who didn't like to play like this may have already left the game, and thus cannot vote against it in this poll, distorting the result
I didn't do any final conclusion in my previous message, coz I didn't want to force the hand of the Mods on that rule. One of the rare joy of being a Mod is to choose the Tour rules, and I'd rather not remove that to them...
On the other hand, my mood about this may change if we get more pep complaining about being forced to play with the 117ms rule. That's why this topic & vote are still open...
About the Delay, there's an explanation in the Doc, I just updated it to make it a bit more clear :

The Delay is the latency time that Tennis Elbow adds between the time you actionnate your controller (keyboard, gamepad, etc...) to move your player, and the time this information is actually processed to make your player move. This allows keeping both PCs synchronized. In short, the higer the Delay, the more latency it'll have between the time you give a command and the time your player will react.
To have the game running at a normal speed, the Delay must be at least half of the ping. For example, if you usually have a maximum ping of 100ms with your opponent, then you must set the Delay 50ms or more.
