who wants to have a tie hanging over you? this isn't the all-star game! i mean, the point is to make it like it was...it's fun to give the home team a slight advantage, but to win every tie? come on...
I fail to see why you would want to not have ties. If you are playing 5x5 H2h and 10 games are awarded each week, what difference does it make if you get a few ties? Same for everyone else. If you are playing by week for a single W/L, again what difference does it make> Same for everyone else.
It all comes out in the end and the only place a tie can be meaningful is in the playoffs. I rather score the categories the way they are being played and not arbitrarily award a category or a week to a team based on an isolated stat.
