OK back to the drawing board... :shock:

We can play today at the normal time without Xocrates, or play tomorrow without zjoere neither of which I am in favour of. The whole point of this is we play against each other...

I am in favour of rescheduling with the next agreed time final no matter how many or few turn up otherwise we could be here for infinity.

Next week I can play...

Monday anytime after 5pm GMT
Tuesday is a nono
Wednesday anytime from 5pm GMT
Thursday anytime from 9pm GMT
Friday anytime after 8pm GMT
Saturday anytime after 4pm GMT
Sunday anytime

Cheers

all my previously stated times still stand, it appears this is becoming slightly complicated...

Really? Since you're only available after 7 pm (or so I understood) that doesn't give us a very big window :?

Well, then Wednesday at 7 or 8 pm? It's not a time I'm very comfortable with, but personally I can probably work around it. Anyone objects?

Xocrates has suggested we play today at the arranged time (2pm GMT) and make the result provisional...are you a mind reader Xocrates? I was thinking about this yesterday? :?

It's worth doing I think because otherwise I doubt we will ever get a game...we are not alone mind...the other groups seem to be going through the same thing.

For the moment then I will create Game6 at about 2pm GMT today and see who turns up...if we get enough we will play and make the result provisional. If we can't complete a 6 player game soon the result from today's game becomes official.

I know it's not ideal and I really want everyone to have a chance but this might be our only option...???

Unfortunately what I can't do is to see the future, Otherwise I would have told you guys to do just that.

As of right now only -demosthenes- and zjoere have not read the PM, which is rather bad since they appear to be the two we're having more trouble getting together.

These are my current suggestions. We are now at plan B

Plan A: We all agree on a date and time to play

Plan B: Make a provisory game with whoever is available and try to make plan A work before all the other groups play their games.

Plan C: Make a second provisory game where players absent from the first one might play and combine the results with the first provisory game (Winner of each game have automatic pass and the better of the seconds. Case the 1st and 2nd places are repeated, then the best of the thirds)

Plan D: We use the results of the provisory game.

surgestion
we play the game with one player missing and add a cpu,
the cpu placeing wont count so if its in 3rd then the player in 4th spot gets the 3rd placeing,
the missing player plays a 1 vs 1 with the 3rd placed player winner goes through.

If its cool with Demosthenes we will play without him wensday or thursday 7pm gmt,

that said all the other teams might be struggerling too, meaning we could have a few weeks to play,
better start looking to see if there a time limit for game one to be played by,
it would certainly be better if we played all togeather,

Hum... I would prefer two game with whoever is available since a 1v1 basically will give a 50/50 (assuming both players are balanced) chance of the odd player out to get to the next round.

By the way, if we're not playing today I would need to know in the next say... one and half - two hours. My brother appears to have just randomly decided that after lunch we're taking our dogs to get vaccinated and I need to know whether I try to delay enough for the game or not.
