Hit the title for a link to check out the original post's analysis & predictions. Play began today and of the 66 matches played across the three divisions that compete in a Race 2-4 format 16 have gone to time. That's nearly 25%. By comparison, in Bitberg there were 102 Race 2-4 format prelim matches with only 7 that went to time (not including any carry over matches from Malaga.) So far the numbers substantiate the prediction that the CC layout would encourage defensive play.
