Rules and Problem statements are made to be fair to all contestants.

1. If Rules are changed just Before, During and After each round, Why have those rules at all???
This will be a handicap to other contestents and unfair practice. Just putting" rules can be changed at any time during the contest..." is an even greater sin and stinks of host partiality and selfishness.

2. One could see a " eye wash" disqualification" in the miorning and see the same team playing in the Afternoon!!!! ( CTF, SHAASTRA 06
This is a violation of some or other participating team's rights and amounts to blatant "cheating"

Can the BIG Sponsors answer why they are party to this Cheating by the Hosts??

3. There is NO harm in having a free-for-all rules and see the consequene of it on the arena. Probably some interesting stuff might emerge!

4. There is big money involved as prizes...and bigger aspirations by the participants who spend lots of Time and Resources for the event.

DONT be unfair to them!!

Like ie said befoe -

Hosts should not particitapte - Will solve 90% of the problems. They can participate for display but not compete.

I remember when I used to learn Cricket..
I was a Kid and Dad used to give me an easy ball but
was if I dont hit a 6 then I am out..
I knew if bat goes to him, then how tough it will be to make him out.
So i used to try my level best to hit 6 to each and every ball..

ie rules can be any thing.. but should be decided before..
Once made should never be changed before comp ends.. :wink: :D
