Wow, i hoped that Drofa 2.0 results would be good, but 11/12 is far beyond my expectations. I can only hope Drofa would be able to hold 1st place further.
Judging by the games played, Drofa likes very much to sacrifice rooks for minor+few passers to win games later by pushing them.
Piece values tuning proving to be more of a use than simple 20 elo, it actually give Drofa some style :D
