I doubt we have to worry about this particular detail, because unless there are companies that sell such tables can ship worldwide and service such equipment, we will be unable to comply with this rule.

China itself has hundreds of brands, so only allowing some companies which meets its requirements provide tables for tournaments as an assurance seems reasonable.

If the WMCC plans on regulating the use of autodealers, could they publish a list? Also, what *authority* lets them decide table A is good, table B is bad? Have they had problems with Amos or Alban, and what exactly do they propose as a better alternative? --- Other than that, I suppose people who enjoy playing government rules now have the option to have fun playing simple government rules too. cough

We have been following the changes to the main rules as well. This update (as well as the 2011 Chinese update) are mainly cosmetic in nature, as none of the rules have been significantly altered. A lot of problematic areas still exist in the fouls and penalties section without change, which have to be corrected via addenda released during each major competition, such as at WMC 2012, and at the recent China Mahjong Championship 2014.

Probably, the major difference now is not actually the omission of several scoring elements, but the reduction of the winning requirement from 8 points to 6 points. This is probably concommittant with the omission of several important two-point scoring elements such as All Chows, All Simples, Seat Wind, and Round Wind.

Beginners may learn to play effectively within this system, but the full rules will be like a totally different system. Would habits learnt here be difficult to unlearn?

We in Singapore have been analysing the new beginners' rules (the 'primary' rules) using the Chinese version which was released about two weeks earlier.

We are troubled by this new development, as we feel that the new beginners' rules may hinder learning of MCR rather than aid it. We feel that there are negative consequences in transitioning from this beginners' ruleset to the full ruleset for beginners.
