Hey Mariol...any word from Paul about more/better refs in general? What of his plans (if any) on eliminating problems like the ones he created at ION 07? ...and please don't blow me off or tell me to "come up and see"....this is important safety information that NEEDS to be said out in the open.
Druid.... I would NOT blow you off.
In regards to these games, the one's JPazz is putting on, there were absolutely no issues to mar the PTW game. Wulfpak and Skirmish did an excellent job. As far as I see, these, smaller less aggressive games will be a nicety for Skirmish.
The "Other" games.... You, as well as I, know that of the 3 major scenarios that Skirmish puts on, ION is the big dog and the MAJOR headache. To the best of my knowledge, there will be more security, stricter policies and with the reduction if players less trouble. Having the cap at 3000 should insure a better game. When I played in 05, my 1st there were 3k players and I do not recall any major incidents. I do believe that Paul is looking to increase the player to ref ratio but I have no details.
Best practice, and you know this as well as I, is if they break a priority rule... bounce them completely. I do believe this will be the way it will be.
