Quote:I heartily dispute this. How is playing against one person on one day more skillful than playing against everyone, every day?
You always bring out this tired ass argument, and you are always wrong.
With H2H you see things like we saw in football this year, where people with mediocre teams finished ahead of people who outscored them by a significant amount*, just because of the fact that the W/L column said they were better. Head to head is the luck of the draw every week, and relies much less on the merit of your "skill" than a pure top points league. Head to head is for people who rely on luck, not skill.
*and yes, I am talking about myself. I really shouldn't have finished sixth or whatever I ended up at. I caught a good string of luck. I had like the fourth fewest points out of anyone in the league at the end of the season or something like that. In a roto league, my "skill" would have landed me at number 8 or so, instead of number 6. And you would have beaten me.
Too bad, so sad. Didn't go down that way, did it?
Edit: scratch that, I just checked. I would have been 5th and you would have been second to last. Now I see why you want H2H. It covers up your woeful inadequacies as a fantasy sportsman, and levels the playing field, bringing everyone else down to your level and giving you a "chance to compete".
It's not like football bonehead. The season is three times as long, which evens out statistical anomalies that can occur in football. The scoring categories within each week are what determines who goes to the playoffs. More emphasis is placed on winning the statistical categories within that week against the opponent you're playing, and adjusting your team to compete against the strength or weaknesses of that person's team. Having so many scoring categories assures that more strategy needs to be used, which you would of course decry, being incapable of formulating any.
