"If you're gonna lose, lose early." has long been a good slogan for Swiss tournaments.
Sorry but this thread really disturbs me. I think of Redemption as a "Win-Win" game where the first win is for the Lord and the second win for myself. I do not believe either is pleasing to the Lord if you win by anything other then trying your best. My daughter and I have been to many tournaments and we can honestly say we have enjoyed them all...not because we have had some success at winning but because we had a sincere feeling of shared fellowship at all of them, (Yes, placing made it more "fun" but not more meaningful). I feel saddened for those that feel the only successful tournament experience is one where they place. Frankly, I am probably a 3d tier player but playing those rated as the best is enjoyable and I will not allow my daughter or myself to feel we have let down the "elite" by not being a more difficult win for the elite. Not too long ago the rules were changed concerning the elite holding back a win to get that extra lost soul as it clearly was not in the spirit of the game to "bury" a weak player. What S
I have the Wizards program in question at my new store; Gem City Games: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Gem-City-Games-Release-your-inner-gamer/172769039489746 . I would be up to hosting an impromptu local tournament with at least 8 players to try this out.
Sorry if my ramblings left the wrong impression about this discussion. I am not disturbed by the discussion but perhaps about what finnally evolves into changes to the game. I have no idea about how other tournament games are played to make them more elite friendly. Howeve, if you can say the changes ould not have eliminated Rebeccah from having the equal chance everyone else had at nationals then I am relatively ok with it. But if you make rules that favor elite players at the expense of newer or less "dedicated" players then I strongly object. Frankly a major reason we both like sealed and booster is that it levels the playing field quite abit with respect to not owning all the rare/new releases and thus building a deck while still favoring experienced players knowlege of the game to an extent but not because they have cards in their collection newer players do not. This and my previous comments considerd, I will wait to consider the changes the experts make to the game and hopefully can relie on their spirit lead choices. take care all, Allen
one day im very sure, she'll be among one of the elite female players within the redemption community

then how is it i have never heard of her til recently? hmm?
Were you at Nationals last year when she placed there? Do you attend tournaments in Ohio or Kentucky? Otherwise you probably haven't heard of her because she is not on the boards.
I can't catch what's your deal hear?Did a girl beat you in kick ball in 2nd grade? It's a cad game, I'm as competitive as anyone but there is absolutely no reason to be calling someone out who you have never met.
im not calling anyone out, im just out having fun and letting my possible opponents know that im waiting and i'll be ready to face them. and whoever is thumbing down my reply obviously doesn't like what i have to say, they can deal with it cause i was only showing my determination and my excitement to be able to go to nationals which isn't a crime.
