I think LD basically handicapped TH 3-5 points every match before real starting to play ...
Does the above wording sound valid to you? If yes, what does the bolded part refer to? Thanks.
It is not quite clear but it probably means that the handicap depended on the opponent's skill at the game, so it is a handicap of between 2 and 5 points in the opponent's favour.
