While I'm on favour of not giving Under his Blow such infinite power, it's no good for this game that we are changing the rules each 2 months, especially when all these digests aren't updated in the CRF.
It's hard to keep everyone updated. I am the only official judge in my country, and we have over 350 players signed up in the spanish MECCG forum. Not only the Digest 107, but also the Play and examples File, state that Under his Blow will prevent a character from tapping against one strike. People gets tired of seeing the rules are changing each 2 weeks; perhaps it's not a problem for us, since we check these forums very often, meet each other in GCCG, but for every other player in the world (which is roughly 95%) all these changes may look arbitrary, and lets face it, not all of them know who is the NetRep, and they don't understand why he was choosen; a few of them don't even agree with following the directions of someone who's not an ICE employee. Sometimes they don't even share my position as "official" judge, since the word "official" means very few in a game that lost his owner several years ago.
As a side note, I have been recommending everyone to download and print the Play and Examples file since the very first time I saw it. Now it seems I should no longer do that.
Not everyone has the time to read 113 Digests, the rules, the CRF, etc with all their contradictions and further corrections. I know this game needs all this work, and be sure we appreciate all the effort put into it a lot, BUT, we need to have all these stuff condensed in only one document
Otherwise, it is impossible for the other 95% of the players to keep track of everything.
