so what does this say about the standard opposed challenge mechanics. I have not evaluated the mathematics of this but what does adding the passing dice give that an opposed challenge would not.

Are you talking about using a Challenge to draw against each other?

No. what I was asking is that why the new mechanic for draw? Why not use a challenge? And if there is a reason for the new mechanic what does this say about opposed challenges in general. Are there benefits to the new mechanic that should/could be used for any opposed challenge?

My impression is that the new draw mechanic incorporates variable REP damage in an elegant way. I compare it not to a Challenge test but to the older Draw mechanic in 6GS.

The Draw mechanic is more a variation on damage from shooting and not a Challenge where you decide what you want to do, etc. If you based the Draw solely on 2d6 versus Rep like the Action table, there's not much concern for the higher Rep guys versus lower Reps. This makes it a little more tense.
