I have now slumped to 281 in the league and I will be honest I set myself a goal of being in the top 200 at the end of the second week. If i was not I would sabotage my position and go back to the open league, I have now changed my mind and will stay and fight for my position despite being unfairly penalised for being a 20 VPP player ( see my earlier winge about that). I have noticed a few very good players who are much better than me way down the bottom half of the league, Maybe they are following a similar plan to my original one. I will continue to try and improve against the Big Boys and hope PSO change the payout stucture so that is a wee bit fairer on us 20 VPP players. I know I can go back to the open and collect an easy $30 or $50 but I wont learn much ,

I would like to know others opinion on this, Stay and fight or take the 20 pieces of silver ?
And Dale and Hull thanks for the laughs and support in recent games. Good Luck everyone the slightly better than average Gate is chasing you down. lol

Hi Gatehouse

No-brainer really
Lets be honest ; What are you gonna learn in the open league ? Nowt you don't already know
In a bit of a slump myself at the minute but figure there is plenty of games and time to get into the top 500
As for the vpp's , go and play cash ring games you are comfortable and profitable at , whislt having fun , and the vpp's will just fall into place
All the best for the rest of the month and hope you see me in the premier league again next month

As a US non-player I have no skin in the game but were I playing my thinking would go along Edin and spikes lines. But that's me,can't say that's the "right" call for everyone.

One thing that I am relatively convinced of at this point though is that a system that leads to players even entertaining the notion of "dumping" games has a serious flaw that needs to be addressed.

You shouldnt be thinking twice about shot-taking premier league high ranks next month. Just play solid, hope for a heater and youll win a few hundo minimum.
