What is the advantage for players that put their DISTRIBUTORS in other brackets beside the Middle one?
If a player put his distributor in TOP tier bracket ( deluxe car ), what is the difference then he put it in middle bracket? In the end the middle bracket can go to TOP tier bracket anyway. The same thing apply with the mass produced bracket And as i remember, there is no max number of distributors per bracket.
When you are placing a distributor from off the board there is indeed no advantage to putting it anywhere besides the middle. And in fact the rules mandate that you must do this.
The reason that there are different brackets, is that once the distributor has sold a car and moved onto a space, it will then at the end of the phase slide back to the right....in the bracket it was in. So then a distributor that sold a high-end car will be unable to sell an economy car in the next round, and vice versa.
