The poll seems to be a bit skewed. It's pretty obvious that RAing and SAing are easier than TAing, and people like easy records, or getting high ranks easily.
TAing is pushed very far, and it requires a lot more time to place high in the standings because the strats are so well developed and require such a degree of skill. Of COURSE RAers and SAers would want to keep those charts, that's all they have, they don't want to devote the time to TAing, whereas most TAers it seems, want to ditch the other charts because it's easy, or it's not worth bothering with other than for a better ranking, and in that case, the rankings get skewed to because you get a lot of great players who just TA ranking low because they don't care to submit in other charts.
Yeah yeah..I know all about the whole "each group only wants to do their thing, so by your (my) logic that means we should remove TAing for the SA/RAers." I got that, you don't even need to say it. However, Mike has pointed out that RA/SA charts were already voted to be removes however long ago it was (I don't know if I was here or not), and now it's come up again.
I personally don't think SA/RAing needs to be tracked. For one, RAing can easily be maxed (and at least one game gives you a huge score bonus for perfect rings, so there is a Score submission too, a 2 for 1). SAing I don't have as much of a problem with, because you need to be fast, collect a lot of rings, and destroy enemies for a good score, but it's still far easier than being competitive in TAing. If people are here to compete, doesn't that mean that they should want a challenge? I mean isn't that the whole point of being competitive?
I don't know, it seems to me like most people don't care whether or not they are removed, but there seems to be more people who want these charts to stay than there are those who want them to be removed. But who are these people? The TAers for one, seem to be more TSC regulars, the people who've been around longer and done more, and shouldn't we cater to those people before every other person who comes in here and just does RA/SAing because it's easy ranking points? And this is something I'm unsure of, because I wasn't here in the beginning, but wasn't TSC strictly TAing at one point (I honestly don't know, so if I'm wrong then ignore that)?
Anyway, that's my 2 cents. I know what I say doesn't mean a whole lot, but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person who feels this way.
