    I agree, the rules are horrible. But this part is pretty clear even though the examples suck.

    "your cumulative score only counts for the Round(s) you've already won"
    "Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good"

    Right and based on the example given, all the cpu's goals count, otherwise why be so specific?

    So the example is not part of the rules? I should disregard it? Because it's basically tellin me if the computer scores goals in the round i've lost then they still count.

    c.f. "If you won Round 1, 5-2 and Round 2 5-3 and lost the 3rd Round 0-1, your cumulative Biggest Blowout would be 4."

    So when the entire rule set is contradictory, which point captures the essence of the original intention?

    Am doing a quick search (got real life things I should be doing so it has to be quick!!!) for other instances of "Special Blowout" rules, and all that I've found so far relate to single "for vs against" counts... I've found none so far that need to reckon multiple games.
    So no other examples to go by just yet... still looking.


    FYI, the link for Kirk's better performance for this track... https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/194150
    ... but most of the discussion about the problematic rule set is happening in this thread.
    Thanks Ragequit thanked this post

    Ahh, Dick has found an example, posted in the other thread.

    I still think ignoring the last round is the wrong way to calculate your score.

    But what is your opinion? Is the example given in the special rules merely an error? Or does it entail an extra stipulation where goals scored by the cpu in the round that i've lost are still calculated towards goal difference?

    This is what I know. If you add all his goals up and subtract the computers goals, his total score would be 9. If you add up just the rounds he won, his goal score would be 11.

    Now this is how I read the rules. You only count the rounds that he won and use the blow out rules for only those rounds. So that last round he lost 0-2 doesn't really mean anything...which makes no god damn sense but that is how I read the rules. So I have his goal total, according to the rules by using only the games he won, as 11.

    I am voting no. The rules suck, but they are what they are and that's what I'm going by. 11 goals scored, he submitted 9, it's a no vote.
