In another branch of the gaming hobby, I noticed that tournament results included awards by age bracket: Best 55+, Best 60+, Best 65+, all the way up to Best 85+!

Would you like to see wargaming tournaments do this too?

So everyone wins a prize? I'm not really in favour of the concept.

I don't need to be reminded that I'm 66.

Nope. Although I'd be ok if it was done in reverse, I.e.Best under 18, Best under 14, etc…

There was a time when graduating from college with a 4.0 GPA actually meant something. Now, not so much.

I agree with Tommy. I don't mind a "Juniors Division" or two to encourage younger gamers but, for adults, no.

There ought to be a prize for "old timers" who face their stands the correct way !!
