Flyingdaaka has seen quite a bit of crap in the forums lately. It seems the general people (or more to the point, wannabe general people) have been ridiculing other trainers for not participating in generals.
Include Flyingdaaka in that group. How hard is it to understand that it is just as fun, actually in many cases, more fun to participate in restricted and claiming events. They are more competitive, more fair, and usually have a more diverse group of trainers in them. No fear of facing a horse with a 15 point BSR advantage in restricted races or claimers. The generals have the same suspects all the time. The other tournaments have a variety of different trainers.
The generals, as they are set up today, are of no interest to Flyingdaaka. Flyingdaaka is not alone. Just for shits and giggles, Flyingdaaka broke down last nights events. There were 107 HRF races. Here's what went off last night:
Total restricted: 76
Grade 3 generals: 16
Grade 2 generals: 3
Grade 1 generals: 5
Total general: 24
That means 77.5% of the races run last night were restricted or claiming. And most of the generals were, of course, bless you people, Grade 3 generals. Clear evidence that people besides Flyingdaaka are sickened by the way you people enter generals.
Many general people won't keep a horse below 130. LOL. Flyingdaaka has a different approach. No horse in the stable ABOVE 130. Any general horse gets thrown into a claimer or faces the shotgun.
It isn't about "dodging generals" or "being afraid of generals". It's all about getting the most entertainment one can from The Great Game, and many have figured out that the generals are not the way to go.
