An Improvement over Armageddon!
Many would be mistaken to think that the methods that FIDE today uses to break ties are the result of a logically progressive process that has seen natural, incremental improvements over the years.
It is nothing of the kind. Breaking ties has always been a completely ARBITRARY process, regardless of the epoch that we might find ourselves in.
As such, in my opinion, FIDE has implemented the worse system of tiebreaks imaginable. Armageddon is crazy chess…throwing pennies against a wall would be vast improvement!
