Exactly my point. The problem with this one all-inclusive fargorating is that it is usually based on two totally different mind-sets(data): casual league play, and competitive tourney play. And where this is becoming an issue is that more and more big money tournaments are using fargorates as caps. This means more league players will want to sandbag in order to be able play in tournaments that use fargorate caps that would otherwise lock them out.I think the only real upside to all that additional data management is simply that last line.... You would like the ability to compare what your local league player does on Wednesday night to how he performs when it matters more. I get it, but I don't see the value in league stats beyond the local district, but maybe thats the point...
I can tell you right now, that my fargo rates would be very different between the two designations. I play league for fun, and "hold my beer and watch this" moments. When I play tournaments I'll only touch a drink if a long wait is in my future. Does that mean I sandbag in league...?
These 580 fargorate-capped, $1,000 entry/winner-take-all-type tourneys, for example, are becoming much more common, and the ability and incentive to sandbag outside of these tourneys (with recreational data) is higher than ever. I feel that TOURNAMENT RESULTS should carry much more weight in the overall rating because of this.
