We have a really tight game, the top 6 teams are within spitting distance of each other.<br><br>
Adding an additional couple hundred points will put some teams out of reach.<br><br>
I'm asking the 'bonus points' be waived or given to the bottom teams, as incentive to get back into the game.<br><br>
Just an observation and a request, a simple yes or shove it will do.

Well, we see what Team is relying on free points to win the game, rather than their own efforts.<br><br>
Sad, really.

Whatever...lets hear you bitch if your team was in the lead.<br><br>
You had no problem taking your SherpaJ points...<br><br>
Frankly I dont think we need those points to win, but if team J gets them and we dont, we are screwed.

As someone from Team J, I kina agree with Antag - it favors a stronger starting team as opposed to a consistent team, and actually penalizes a strong finishing team. I do not favor changing anything at this point - the rules were laid out from the start, so changing mid-stream is not right. But for future VRAA's I think we could pass on the bonus points.

I was looking at the bonus points yesterday and thought the same thing as antag. If you want to reward a team for pushing hard to get there that's great, but the points seem a little high to me, an extra days worth of points makes a big difference when teams are close.

The difference with the Sherpa J points was that it was the same amount of points, available to everyone.<br><br>
The spread of 250 points, is a big spread for a close race. And by the way, Muzicchica, my Team could easily arrive in Surf City the same day as your Team and could just as easily be granted the free points. Remember the rules, whichever Teams arrive there on the same day, not the Team that is ahead. In the event of a tie, Roots is going to draw a name out of a hat. Random chance.<br><br>
We'll see who's bitching when your Team loses by 250 points.

It is a game.<br>
If we lose by 250 pts and people are that hurt, I give permission to the team to blame me. I'm putting in 250 pts less a week than I have in the previous VRAA's. I'll even give an address to send the hatemail if it makes people feel better.<br>
It's fun, and a little bit competitive, yeah, but lots not take it too seriously. Nothing really at stake here. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
