Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on maybe moving to a three person team structure. I have spoken to Markt and this is going to be an official vote and it will affect the future of the comp.

That seems like a better idea than 2 members per team.

2 people doesn't really seem like a team, it's just a "paring."

I'd say yes too. IMO it would probably not be able to be implimented by July yet though, as we'd have to vote and stuff, and then we would have to find third people.

Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.

At first I was opposed to having 2 man teams and voted for 4. Now that I have been in the competition for almost 3 months, I'm used to the 2 man team and like it like that.

However, I think that running a 3 man team could even the playing field out some more. Right now it's fairly even and next month will be even closer. A three man team could weaken a team or make it stronger depending on who the third man is.

As of now, almost all the top teams have a 285 and 260.

On another note, I don't see how a 3 man team will help. Currently there are like 20 teams, but only around half of them are active. There haven't been too many new teams, but it could be more enticing for someone to join an already established team rather than making a new one.

I vote keep it as it is.

I vote 2 man-i think a team as 2 is great, 3 is like a third wheel. I also think a 3 man team would work too, so according on what the majority rules i don't care either way.

I say yes to a 3 person team. Will be good case a member has issues.
