#41 Yes, the players are not at fault, the tie break system is.
#40 A 3-1-0 scoring system makes no difference at all in a one to one match. It would make a difference in tournaments with more than 2 players.
#33 agree, Magnus Carlsen has not proven himself to be better than Karjakin or Caruana in classical chess. So the classical chess championship has been degraded to a rapid championship.
