My suggestion: players who have pending matches should post in this thread when they are available to play. This will show who is really serious about playing and who is stalling. Otherwise, how do we really know that players are organizing games via private message or if they are actually stalling?

The real problem is that there are too many non-regular players in the draw.


As I said before, (hind sight is 20/20) This holiday season will have an impact on the duration of this tournament. Just be patient.

I will be migrating the server to another host at some point in the near future since I no longer have other use for the vps currently running it. Depending on the amount of <snip>s given at the time, this may or may not cause some downtime :) But I'd be happy to see when people are planning to play so that I don't take it down just at the wrong time.

Endless, how do we know that the holiday season is preventing players from playing their matches that were assigned 3 weeks ago? I personally have extra time to play in the holiday season, so that doesn't apply to me. I am simply suggesting that players post when they can play to prove that they are making an effort to play, and not being chicken. Otherwise, we can try this: scrap the entire single elimination draw and turn it into an open tournament. Let everyone play whoever they want and set the deadline for matches very short (like 1 week). Reward players for playing more, and get the tournament over with. It doesn't matter how you decide the victor: most wins counts, or best win to lose ratio counts, or etc. This will at least let us "truly regular" Defcon players to play more "official" 1v1s together.

So because you are impatient, and dont realize that other people have families and jobs (for me 2 jobs) that we should change everything? I somehow don't like that reform, nor will it happen. This tournament will take a while. Just be patient.

It was an idea for if the tourney fails. I'm not saying we should do it immediately. My main point was a request that players with pending matches prove that they are making an effort to play them by publicly posting times they are available to play. If the tourney fails to move along, my additional idea is just a last ditch effort to keep the tourney from completely failing. It is the worst possible scenario.

Can someone else chime in here? Who sounds more ridiculous?

Legendary: Hey guys, if you have pending matches, can you please post publicly when you are available to play so that we can confirm you are actually making an effort to move the tourney along?
Endless: I know what everyone's schedule is. EVERYONE'S. All around the world in all time zones. Everyone is definitely too busy to even post that they are too busy, and you are impatient.

Now you sound like a child. Why do they have to show you that they are making an effort? It's not like the tournament will move along any faster or slower if they do/dont show you. And for you to imply that I know everyones schedule is ridiculous. I'm telling you to be patient because you are coming off like a pissed off teenager. If you just relax and communicate with only the person that YOU are playing, then there wont be any issues. You are making this a lot more complicated than it has to be.

Let's go ahead and advance Legendary. We've seen blatant disregard from SLO in the past. So I'm ok with that.

Let's go ahead and advance Legendary.

+1, NR and SLO had enough time for a single game, also Legendary would destroy both of them.

Also I can't load spreadsheet.

Anyone seen Blitzkrieg?

Blitz - PM me when you're around. Around evenings GMT - a PM goes straight to my phone, so can rock up to the PC whenever.
