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 ....

‘What does EMA gain by ending MJT partnership?’

SAN DIEGO - What does EMA gain by ending up the cooperation with MahjongTime in MORSE tournaments? Slava Novozhenya, president of MahjongTime, still does not understand.
Last week, the European Mahjong Association broke off the cooperation with MahjongTime in organizing online mahjong tournaments, because this internet mahjong server had cancelled the German Online Open Championship, which was scheduled for November 7~8. Earlier, talks between the Dutch Mahjong Association and MahjongTime about MJT sponsoring the World Mahjong Championship were suspended.

Slava NovozhenyaBut Mr. Novozhenya does not see any link between the two: the sponsor contract, and the cooperation in MORSE (the Mahjong Online Ranking System Europe).

So now he asks the visitors of MahjongNews to give their opinions. "MahjongNews readers could lead EMA to make right decisions", he says.

His question to the visitors of MahjongNews is:


"What does EMA gain by ending our partnership agreement before its expiration date? Is this decision fair for EMA players, who lost MORSE tournaments?"

Clearly they don't literally have anything to gain, but from reading the other articles on this site, the problem seems a little bit more complicated than the question posed by the headline of this article. This online newspaper is free to write whatever it wants and quote whomever it wants, but when it publishes an article only quoting a source on one side of an issue *and has a banner-ad by that same source on the same webpage as the article*, one starts to wonder about its objectivity.

As said in another article ( http://www.mahjongnews.com/en/index.php/nieuws/reports/436-mjtproblems.html), EMA have trouble to get answers from MJT.
If EMA have something to gain, it's make MJT react and communicate with them.
It would be better if they react by friendly speach, and not try to turn players against EMA. Giving arguments in favor of MJT will be great too, but they didn't seem to find any.

Pointing out there is no alternative servers for now* is not a argument to justify a partnership.

*I mean in English and with Chinese Official rules.
