I would play, but the format feels overwrought.

Why not just single games - there's always some element of luck in RFTG and while sets might mitigate it I don't think the timesink is worth it.

Also, I'd rather play 3er RvI - to me that's the most stable environment for skill. 2PA highlights too many gross early game situations (GD+IB; ELC/ATS)

Race is fun! More time playing race is more fun! Indeed, luck of a bad starting hand or an abusive opponent's start a bit brutal, but 2 of 3 helps. Not married to the format, but I can play 4p games vs the AI in 3 mins, so I don't think games will go that long.

Nice to see you back on the Race forums.

In principle I'm interested, but I'm studying for exams right now, so probably shouldn't commit to distractions like this until later in the month.

Maybe an async round robin tournament would actually work well?

I'm interested. Maybe start of simple - a base game only 1v1 tournament?

I'd be okay to run a single round-robin; with a possible tie breaker for top place.

Revive this now that the Steam version is out?
