I just saw the results for the 3rd round of the men's Cincy tournament and thought to myself, I bet the people who had default scores did REAL well. Because I would have the picked the opposite of almost every result.

In the end, I voted for R16 only.

So is Option 2 the final answer?

For me that is OK.

It will hurt me sometimes as I do forget to predict a round now and then. But it is more fair.

Alright, we'll see the result as people submit their scores for the first time from now on.
The change doesn't apply retroactively.

Ok, because otherwise some people might lose some titles (as they received defaults in one or more rounds when winning events).

We took balls away from mytiwtiw and that was misery. Imagine what would happen if we took titles away &#128512;&#128512;

#ed_op#font color="brown"#ed_cl#@ #ed_op#b#ed_cl#Graveller#ed_op#/b#ed_cl#:#ed_op#/font#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#&nbsp;no... we won't do that.. it would be too much work.. It would require opening the database and change all the scores.. That's not even an option. and Tiwtiw would kill for that .. lol lol.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#I am not working today so it was a good opportunity to make the changes... Now let's see how it works out. Hope I didn't introduce a bug... :) .. there is always that possibility. #ed_op#br#ed_cl#
