Chad Asks: More Fun With Reading Habits

Rate this Entry
More questions for you...

1) How much of a typical card do you read? Your match? Your match and the main? Whole thing?

2) How much does your answer to #1 vary between your home league and other leagues you follow?

3) What would make you read more? Format? Shorter events?

Go forth and answer. Otherwise, INFRACTIONS for everybody! Whoo hoo!

    1) Ironically...I rarely read an NFW card from start to finish after posting. I've invested so much in putting it together and writing for it...that I just leave it all behind once its out there. I read everything before it's posted to make sure it flows well. In the CSWA or fWo, I'd usually skim the 'mediocre' writing and read the important matches/segs.

    2) Heh...answered in #1 without knowing.

    3) Better cardwriters suited to my style of reading, which might be impossible. JN's and GG's don't grow on trees.

    1) How much of a typical card do you read? Your match? Your match and the main? Whole thing?
    I tend to skip through to my match, read that first, then go back and read the whole thing straight through. If I'm not on the card I read the whole thing, normally in one go unless it's for NFW - it takes less time to read War and Peace than some of those cards. Good reads though.

    2) How much does your answer to #1 vary between your home league and other leagues you follow?
    I only actually read leagues I've got characters in. I did try reading some other leagues but found I didn't have the time with everything else I do.

    3) What would make you read more? Format? Shorter events?
    More time. I also think maybe some shorter write-ups; for a TV show if the whole thing would take more than 2 hours to air, my attention starts to wain. Long matches on free-to-air shows have their place, but putting a cap on the length of matches/segments/number of segments would, I feel, force people to write more concisely which I'm all in favour of.

    I usually read my match first, then go back and read the results for characters that interest me. I'd love to read everything, but usually I'm pressed for time.

    2) How much does your answer to #1 vary between your home league and other leagues you follow?

    About the same...

    3) What would make you read more? Format? Shorter events?

    I'd probably read more shows if they were shorter because it is mainly a time issue.
