JPML rule A is kuikae ari too, and even if you can you'll rarely "pick-and-switch" anyway, so that would not be much a problem.

IMO, kuitan nashi will be the most problematic point for a world championship.

Bunta's comment, while pertinent (especially in the light of Europe wanting to organize a world championship, seeking support from leagues with open tanyao), is far from happening any time soon.

To shorten my point, kuitan-nashi Mahjong is like Formula 1 racing with 3 tires. It's probably a great learning exercise (good) that they turned into the only form of testing (bad). If that was the only problem, most people could live with that. The bigger problem for EMA Mahjong is their tolerance for a type of call that would be considered cheating anywhere else: tolerating the pick-and-switch for the same tile. (chi 78+9, throw nine; pon 11+1, throw one)

For a WC-Riichi event to succeed, that last point needs to be addressed once and for all. As for the rest of the rules, it will most likely be a take it or leave it scenario. There's nothing we can do about it.

If the red 5s would be removed and open tanyao allowed the rules would be even better.
But i appreciate the current changes cuz they minimize the luck factor a bit.

I have played this game it is not like real MJ. There are to many Self MJ , the scores become ridiculous at time, the program may be flawed, I seen to many strange things happen with this program. I still play this computer program , but it is far from being close to real MJ. I play TW MJ . Things like NO such MJ and you have a wriong MJ do not exist in real MJ , The rating systyem is way out of wack, Im sure some white person invited this program..I really think they it is a artifical intelligence has a mind of its owm,,,ramdom tossing of tiles does happen , the software for LABTOP needs lots of updating , becareful when you play this game..I have played for 50 years MJ and this game is far from being perfect ....
