I agree that people do spend turns they don't need to running away, but my point about chaos tactics stands; assuming that the players don't have any major gaps in their knowledge, they seem to typically work by increasing the luck factor.
Doesn't take into account that koctyxa may have died on ID:50Anyway. All Hail Dark Lord Tapi.
By the way, I'd suggest for the final that people have to post their high-score details when they die, to prevent a situation such as this one where, for example, koctyxa could claim he reached ID:38 when he only reached ID:32, just so that he would be the 'winner' of this league.
It'd balance things up a bit too between offline/online, in that people playing on the server can't hide their high-score file, whereas people playing offline can.
