Sticks and Automatic Tables, That's the Best Combo.

Everybody loves automatic mahjong tables. American player David Bresnick: “I very much enjoy having one.” Tina Christensen from Denmark: “It is absolutely wonderful to play at auto tables.” French Valérian Thomas: “It’s a real pleasure to use them.” Mahjong News asks around about the most wanted yet most expensive mahjong attribute.

Good luck with that.

Bunta's comment, while pertinent (especially in the light of Europe wanting to organize a world championship, seeking support from leagues with open tanyao), is far from happening any time soon. To shorten my point, kuitan-nashi Mahjong is like Formula 1 racing with 3 tires. It's probably a great learning exercise (good) that they turned into the only form of testing (bad). If that was the only problem, most people could live with that. The bigger problem for EMA Mahjong is their tolerance for a type of call that would be considered cheating anywhere else: tolerating the pick-and-switch for the same tile. (chi 78+9, throw nine; pon 11+1, throw one) For a WC-Riichi event to succeed, that last point needs to be addressed once and for all. As for the rest of the rules, it will most likely be a take it or leave it scenario. There's nothing we can do about it.
