There seems to be a difference of opinion on that rule, so what do people think should be used in the tournament?
If you would rather see something else in this regard (not one of the choices below), please post your suggestion!

The rule in question is that when splitting stacks, the old legion marker should be kept on the bigger stack.
For discussion see https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!forum/acts-tit..., tournament rules part 2.

Any of these are acceptable. What I'd actually do is require it to be fixed (you can just edit the stacks to make them the way it should be, implicitly revealing all of the characters in it).

Revealing the characters isn't that big a deal because most of the time everyone else knows what you have and how you're splitting anyway.

I like the middle option the least (rules with no penalty associated are bad).

I'm not sure why fixing it is better than revealing the bigger stack. The reason for this rule is to not have to waste time tracing stack all the way to the beginning of the game to see where titan/original stack is (in person it's not an issue, as you usually keep track of opponent's titans... but in online game, after a day or two between your turns, you tend to forget).
Revealing stacks immediately removes the need to trace it back, as you just need to trace to the reveal point (which can be done with one search).
Did I miss why "fix that" would be better, given that it pretty much reveals the characters anyway?

I would let players split as they like, but require an announcement to all players if the old legion marker is not going on the biggest new stack.

One has to assume that everyone will be keeping notes anyway, at least when playing multiple online games at the same time.
