Earlier today, a set was hosted where in 2 of its events, players were only allowed to win 1 point max in the whole event.
What do you mean? What events?

About what Bram said,
These events are usually won by the same people, therefore I think the +3 max rule is justified.
That's ridiculous. You going to punish skilled players from winning more event points because they're skilled? Everything about that screams no to me.
