I agree with persecution, but if you're going to incorporate those rules in a DM, then at least give us the option of choosing our opponents.
As for the argument between DT penalty points and DM noob bonus points, idk if I can explain it any simpler than this:
- a lower level opp going against a higher leveled opp. Nothing to lose, a little more to gain than his opponent.
- If this were a DT, this would be considered a hand with 0 elo
- However this "0 elo
banned hand" will happen more often than for a player in a DT with even just 1 elo
banned card in his deck (within a 20 minute period).
TBH, I don't know what to make of this, I haven't really been paying attention through a whole DT trying to find out how many points I lost due to the -2 point penalty but I just know giving low level player an advantage is ridiculous. If they feel good enough to step into the room with veteran players, then they should all be on the same playing field as everybody else. Treat every player equally
