Should the 'Super League' for figure gaming be changed back.

It is clear that the 'Super League' for wargames as implemented in 2006 has not worked.

The 'Super League' replaced the 'Individual Battle Honours'. The 'Individual Battle Honours' was an active system for promoting games.

Whereas the 'Super League' relies on totalling up the scores of players throughout the year, the 'Individual Battle Honours' relies on active participation and challenge matches throughout the year.

'Individual Battle Honours' also takes into account the Handicap rating that a player has to make sure that the holder truly is the best player in South Africa.

The old rules were:

INDIVIDUAL HONOURS

a.        Shall be held in all wargaming periods played at the S A National championships.

b.       That all challenges operate as 'BATTLE HONOURS' challenges, except that the defender must defend the trophy at least twice in two months. Should the defender not have defended the trophy due to lack of opponents, he shall retain the floating trophy, however, should he not have defended the trophy and a challenge has been recorded by the Secretary of the MSSA, the trophy will be awarded to the next best player.

c.       Should the holder of the trophy not play at the South African National Championships in the period in which he holds the trophy, then the trophy shall be awarded to the winner of the South African National Championships for that period.

d.      Should the holder of the trophy play in the South African National Championships, in the period in which he holds the trophy, and fail to finish in the top five places, then the trophy shall be awarded to the winner of the South African National Championships for that period.

e.        In the case of new periods, the trophy shall be awarded to the highest seeded player.

f.       Should the holder of such trophy be unavailable for more than three months, the trophy shall be awarded to the highest seeded player for such period.

g.       The winner of any challenge is the player with the most points on the 32 – 0 system after the SA Handicap adjustments have been made.

h.        The competition shall be run on a national level.

i.         The trophy shall be inscribed on a monthly basis when necessary.
