Captain * 2
Vice Captain * 1.5
The whole reason they added in the VC was because of how hard hit you were when the Captain was a late out.

I don't think they will, in one breath, remove the remedy to that- and also open a second door for that exact same problem to come through again.

Can't think of a time this year when someone's 'captain' was a late out? Did this happen to anyone this year. Seems pretty rare that a captain choice is a late out
Nope, even if it does with social media and phones now very rarely do you miss a big out. All the VC is doing at the moment is giving everyone 2 chances to stuff up your C choice. Get rid of the VC and it becomes a whole lot more strategic in terms of captain choice.

Not really actually, if we only had one shot most people will just put Dangerfield (or whoever the equivalent is that year) basically every time.

Agreed. I think having two options increases the possibilities that need to be considered, both for your own team and in reaction to your opponent's decisions. Reducing the choice to one simplifies the game, and the strategy.

Yes agree but there will be that odd person who likes taking a gamble and it puts it on Steven who gets 170 and you put it on Danger who gets 80 and that costs you finals. Yolo.

Loopholing is what the game is all about.
I enjoy late Sunday night spending hours working out all the possible scenarios for the next week only to forget them by Friday so have to work it all out again only to find out I've overlooked someone plays at the same time so I've ****ed up my entire year due to being a dumb prick. :drunk::D

Edit: Why the **** are these two emoji >:$:drunk:< heads smaller than the rest?!:$:rolleyes::drunk::rolleyes::mad:
