    How are you going to post a coinflip without any proof of who's heads and who's tails, I'm not saying you're just choosing winners (but it wouldn't surprise me lol) but like what the fuck, that's literally just common sense, and why wasn't a 3 day extension granted instead of a coin flip since we're past the 1st round. Having finals =/= having 0 abilitity to play a series of 40 minutes max, sounds like someone is scared to play some Pokémon games if you ask me.

    @overdose stop being a pussy and trying to sneak a win and play me either today tomorrow or Wednesday, any time after 4pm edt

    For the coin flip, I thought it was fairly obvious that you were heads and he was tails based on the name placement, and I'm definitely not just choosing winners. What I would ask you is why weren't you this adamant about getting the match done before the deadline? Sure, you were willing to play on Sunday when he said he wasn't available, but you made no effort to get the match done between Wednesday (after the first schedule attempt failed) and Sunday; otherwise, the match probably would have gotten done, or you may have had a case for an activity win. You shouldn't assume that you will be able to wait until the day of the deadline to get the match done, especially if you haven't asked the other person if they are available that day, and you definitely shouldn't assume that an extension will be given. I doubt granting an extension would have changed anything, since overdose has already said he won't be available the next three days, so it would have come down to a coin flip anyway.
