Okay so maybe, just maybe, hoax is a little strong--but only a little because the addition of the extra bunkers is aimed at solving a problem the bunkers won't, yes you read that correctly, won't fix. And of course Adrenaline Games is claiming the extra bunkers will fix the problem. "... adding a few more bunkers to the existing PSP field is the best remedy to slow Race-to games." (For complete press release title is link.) Four bunkers, even though we don't know yet which four we're getting, can't fix the problem of slow matches going to time from the lowest division right up to the pro game because extra bunkers doesn't address the problem. And if the sample "fix" offered by Adrenaline Games is indicative of how they intend to use the four bunkers in the future they won't make any difference at all. The only thing the sample illustrates is that Adrenaline Games doesn't understand the problem much less how to fix it.
Okay, maybe so but you want to ask what if. What if the extra props were used more, um, better? You know, to fix the problem of too many matches going to time. Even without knowing what kind of prop the extra bunkers will be the answer remains no, four extra bunkers ain't gonna do it. But can they help at all? Maybe. (And that's a seriously qualified maybe that would require someone(s) who actually knew what the result of their design would be. But it's a band-aid solution when what is required is outpatient surgery.)
