Actually, the last Poscheng comp I was in felt like cheating knowing which quest monster was up next (from looking at dumps on the comp ladder).
I think the general opinion is that you should always restart with the original unplayed comp savefile every time, but I honestly don't care.

The other advantage that using quickstart has is that you get to keep your monster memory, which is great for those of us who haven't memorized the game yet

Hugo: After the 3.4.2 release, I went back and updated the comp announcements to use that version.
