I though the whole purpose of the updates was to add some narration an excitement to the competition, in fact. But don't feel really strong about it.
(Player not mod perspective) I’m not really bothered, but it seems a bit of a waste of time sending an update if the report is “Some people have some points, some others have more points.”
And yet others have no points (because they haven't started running)!To be fair, we also know that yet others have fewer points...
No use putting ranking in spoilers when there's posts like these. Could you edit your post so that people who don't want to know, don't get a spoiler?
