Personally, I don’t have a problem if the MMM wants to hold 14-rounders for A, B and C. It’s the only contest in that format and this has always been their tradition or selling feature. The term ‘attrition’ is specifically used for 14 rounders, which never have flyoffs. In other words, the chance of having two fliers max out in are virtually nil. In my youth, I considered 14-rounders a challenge, but now have come to view it as an attrition contest and don’t intend to ever fly in one.
As to measuring a motor’s wattage. It was introduced specifically to give Q a life line, while switching to Energy Limiters. I know some fliers who take two measurements to get their correct average wattage. (A by-the-book CD could enforce a single measurement at the beginning of the motor run.) Don't think there is a short term fix but at least the performance is high enough during the regular rounds. I hope that the more committed Q fliers would switch to energy limiters and gain the 20-25% advantage that an EL offers.
