    I will say that this kind of playing the system instead of playing to the spirit is how casual audiences get pushed out. Once strategies like this get proliferated throughout an audience or player base, then the only ones with a chance to win are the gamblers, rather than people just having fun. There becomes little or no room for casual play, and it fosters toxicity. I'm not dating this guy is some bad guy by any means. But the style of play he's introducing is often the beginning of the end for games and communities. If Jeopardy ever comes to an end, it'll be because it becomes too high stakes. One solution that could at least keep it more casual is a category max: You can only access the lower level, higher cost questions by answering a question of the immediate previous tier, which prevents "Jumping to the bottom".

    1. DaUziel
      9 օր առաջ

      There's a lot of excitement and engagement with "how does he do that" and seeing "grandmasters" of course that I won't deny is part of the fun. The issue is when imitation of those tactics becomes a norm in the community, often without regard to wider strategies, becomes ubiquitous and the source of toxicity. Players like him are not the issue unto themselves, but they often signal what comes next.
