Who are you again?
The manager of the team that will smash yours
I lost, was fun.
You are right, birds and Chatots will donk.
Subbing in WikeMon(xclus|Yanne) for llvallejoll in ADV OU to get the match done.
I'd like to point out that both Roro and Funka have been active (they even posted here!)
I know we have already won this week even if no activity win is handled (SMH johning here) but just to be sure ^_^
Ok Funkasaurus has been given the activity win cause his opponent his really ded.
No activity win in Drifter vs Kevin Garrett and George Orwell vs Lavos Spawn cause they are all ded.
No activity win in Wobbyle vs New Breed cause they have been both active but there were timezones problems.
And no activity win for Roro because xtrashine has been semi-alive.
Wow, Nasty_Plot got forum banned
that makes 2 from hamburg
There were timezone problems, but Wobby didn't even respond till the last two days to VMs for setting up a time....
Won against their sub, surprisingly close game, gg
Dasd we win either way, 5-3 or 6-3 doesn't really matter lol
I'm questioning xtra's activity, I mean, he had time to play for ST but not for this? McMeghan VM'd him I'm 100% sure
Whatever, we won and that's what matters, GG Braviarys, it was a...tough week I guess...I mean...I'm the only member that lost and actually played...how bad is it...
Iceydude, we have 3 players banned, not 2!
Let's go Heracross, we'll show them what team is the best and we shall emerge victorious once again next week
Well Dasd, I was talking about server activity as well, but I must admit I'm blind and didn't see it so its fair to not give Funk the activity win.
Hitman has been on a lot. He's been on at least 5 days this week (I have a bad memory so I can't tell you hours, but I've seen him on!) I don't know why they haven't got their match finished if they're both so active though!
Why are extensions not being given to match-ups that haven't happened despite both players being active? It's not like having TWO WHOLE MATCHES to play in a week is an impossible task, nor are we in a rush at the moment. No round at this point in the competition is dependent in any way, shape or form on the previous round, so just not giving a win to either side is unfair to at least one of the two or even both teams in the short term, and could affect the tournament when it comes to final standings of this part of the tournament in the long term. Just give an extension until the matches happen or until there's a sizable enough difference in the activity of the two players to legitimately give the win to one side.
I'm with the man who offers sarcasm at this point, just so long as they have a scheduled time in the near future
New logo for our team
I've been on numerous times through the course of the week, we were supposedly going to play over the weekend. on the flip side, posting on my PO wall once = active? funk also gave me no way of contacting him. i've been readily available to battle and have heard diddly squat from him other than the one message he left me. we agreed on the weekend and well, it still is the weekend. i've been online the vast majority of the latter two days. i believe we can also still tie, so i'd like to get the battle done
(14:01:34) IFM: bkc
(14:01:37) IFM: when are you playing
(14:01:44) BKC: i dunno i havent seen kg on irc at all
(14:01:54) BKC: as soon as i do i'll pm him and let you guys know
BKC is not "ded", he has actually tried to get in touch with KG
It should be 4-4, with Dude24 winning over Nasty_Plot by default. The game was illegitimate from the start since you were letting a player that shouldn't have been signed up in the first place play.
Okay, I can't really defend xtra, he's been a slacker u_u. But Hitman has been very active on the server like I said and Funk's last post made it look like he didn't intend on getting the match done anyway.
I don't reallly like the idea, but it's acceptable. I'd rather see the matches get done later than have to rely on something like activity or a coin flip anyway.
Uh, "haven't seen on" is a poor excuse. I have my IRC on most of the day even if I'm not there. All one simply has to do is type /query Kevin_Garrett. Just because I don't join the same channels as everyone else doesn't mean I'm not online.
We talked and decided it was going to be hard to get done with our schedules and the Bisharps already won. Seriously fighting for one irrelevant activity win? lol
if you want to resign the match, cool news
i dont think you guys realize how bad of an idea it is to give an extension with a new round being tomorrow
if you can figure out why that isnt good shame on you
New Breed has been trying to get this battle done all week and had to message Wobbyle twice before even getting a response. I don't understand how you'd come to the conclusion that Wobbyle as put as much effort into getting this battle done as New Breed.
Wobby put in effort but what can you do against bad time zones? Don't call out people just to get a cheap win. Or would you like an activity win so you could have some fake sense of security knowing you lost 5 matches to 4. Not my fault the Chatots are the niggas. You're just salty that you lot. Just take the loss like a good boy, and move on and win the rest. You guys have the #1 ladder players on your team after all. You got dis!
New Breed first VM'd Wobbyle on September 10th and after not getting a reply for four days and had to send another one just to get a response. This is a fact.
Who cares? Activity isn't necessarily about who contacted who first, or who messaged who how many more times. The fact of the matter is, they scheduled a time and the time wasn't met. It was due to unfortunate time zone issues. So hop the fuck off and use common sense. Damnit billy.
so why can't wobb and new breed vouch for themselves?
"Wobb : New Breed and my timezones are so bad, probably the worst possible pairing that could happen. Coupled with school and all, I couldn't get to New Breed until Friday to arrange a battle.
Arranged a battle for last night at 02:00-03:00 GMT but our time zones pairings are so suckishly bad, I waited until 02:55 or so and then went to sleep.
Fuck time zones."
What else is there to say? That explains it. Activity can't apply to this situation because a time was scheduled and it couldn't be met by either player. If no time was scheduled and new breed did the bulk of the work, then it would have been understandable to DQ wobby. He made an effort and a match couldn't be done thus things being nullified.
stone is true to his word; he is the ultimate team player!
Erm. Yeah, I'm really sorry for New Breed's team. Time zones are a bitch, that's all I can say.
