I like to call this 'america syndrome'
we all know who the biggest producers are; the point of these competitions is to encourage participation, to increase numbers, and to bring a fun competitive edge to it. The smaller teams would never bother if it was purely points based, and that would suck.
Folding is all about teamwork, about coming together for a common goal; if you're out to pwn some n00bs, you're in the wrong place.
1st)i´m not from america
2nd)i always root for the underdog, it's just this system is a bit absurd in saying "you win,but you don't"
3rd)it's not an attitude, it's a questioning of something that i do not understand (btw looking over the last few pages, i dont seem to be the ONLY one not understanding this system fully), and this is me asking a bit to be explained, i don't know the background info on these competitions as this is my first one
4th)"we get someone with this kind of response every time" which in turn just makes me want to take my ball, and keep folding anonymously, or in this case, another team just to spite people like you
as i previously stated, i am not here to offend anyone, but if you want to make a mission of pissing someone off about this, then sure, that route still exists
this statement also paints a picture as to a "possible" reason why you DON'T get more people involved
