Why are MC and Naniwa being given 0 points in their group for not playing their two games, but White-Ra is being given -2 points?
The way I understand this is;
MC missed his match because he had to attend Dreamhack and *insert whole delayed plane business here.* MC is currently at 0 points in the standings and Bratok is currently at 0 points.
Naniwa missed his match because he was tired, but was found laddering after not playing his match. Strelok then took the win, I'm assuming. Nani is currently at 0 points in the standings and so is his Strelok.
White-Ra missed his match because he had to attend Dreamhack. July took the win after waiting for him for 4 hours. White-Ra is currently at -2 points in the standings and July is at +2 points.
Why is it that White-Ra lost points for not attending, but MC and Nani didn't? Also, why did July win points for his walkover, but Bratok and Strelok didn't? I don't know exactly how this whole points situation will work out in the end, but right now it is extremely unfair for almost everyone involved.
If we're going to be following the White-Ra/July example, then Bratok and Strelok should both be +2 and tied for 1st in both of their groups. MC, White-Ra and Naniwa should all be tied for 10th in their groups, but instead we have White-Ra at 10th while MC & Naniwa both sit at 6th in their groups.
Them being in 6th actually puts them ahead of some players that attended their matches. If the NASL is going to be giving players 0 points for not attending their matches, then it might just be in the player's best interest to make up some stupid excuse to miss a match instead of losing 2 points.
Any official answer from the NASL on this and what's being done about it? Are White-Ra and July going to be at 0/0 or are Bratok, Strelok, MC & Naniwa going to be put at +2, +2, -2, -2, respectively?
