Well then a high M class score being the limits of your current skill might indicate that the HHF bump was probably an accurate adjustment.
That’s what I keep coming back to; as a rarely practicing A class (I’m betting you’re better than myself) should I really be upset that they adjusted solid M-class times out of my reach? Probably not.
Meh, I don’t particularly care one way or another whether it is harder or easier, but I do think the pendulum has swung a bit too far in the other direction... I. E. It is more likely for me to shoot a solid A class match vs good GM’s at a sectional than would be for me to rip off a string of solid A Class classifiers... Essentially, per the classification system, I am over classed and should be dropped down to B if the absolute best I can do on any given classifier is the middle of my current classification. My original post was merely an observation on the magnitude of the shift.
