Glap faced Nyan.

Goodbye to Glap forever-we will miss you!

Zaknafein vs Aracadin instead.

A player has decided to complain about my handling of the situation in bracket 1 and 2.
Apparently small bets, that I have nothing to do with, take precedence over keeping the brackets alive.
Both of these brackets HAVE BEEN CHANGED in order to KEEP THEM ALIVE.
Number one seed Saef dropped out. His spot was filled in by smile, (who had similiar percentages for a 1 seed)

#9 seed Glap has quit the game. Nyan killing him naked was a joke. Aracdin gets a bye and Nyan must STILL face Zaknafein.
All remaining competitors have till Wed 12am to finish or be dqed.

Don't like it?
Too bad.

Bracket 2 is a different story.
Yalen (one seed) dropped out
Kaden (11 seed) dropped out
Vesin (4 seed) is more than likely going to miss the tourney.
5 seed vein and 6 seed seritius are unaccounted for.

Britanii and Cyantia came in as alternates.

Where does the bracket go from here?
I unno :)
But ill try to keep it alive.
So yes, if you have constructive criticism I am all years.
If you can only talk in four letter words and in caps, expect to be ignored.

Does anyone disagree really? I understand running a tourney is stressful, and takes a lot of work. BUT, that being said, switching the number one seed with another player, after the thing has started, is ridiculous. Switching round one matches, is ridiculous. Once you state something in a tournament will be one way, and brackets are set, and everything is satisfactory, coming along and changing things just isnt an acceptable way to deal with things. If a player doesnt show in the stated time bracket, DQ him, dont have his opponent fight someone else. Seeded betting doesnt work that way, and plans on time constraints within the game, and without, get screwed with. Offer the remaining unopposed players byes, leave the seeds how they are, and move to the next round. Anyone who disagrees with that and can offer a reason other than giving me verbal run around is welcome to supply me with their arguement, but having the person who claims to be running this thing tell me one thing, and then go back on it, such as "deadlines", isnt acceptable.

What is even worse than what you state, is to give a time to EVERYONE on when it starts and ends and not follow through.
I don't mind running over a bit, but we are fare behind.

If I did as you said, 40% of all participants would be dropped, bracket 2 would have 3 competitors and bracket 4 will be down in half.

If it makes you feel any better, I am trying to maintain the bracket setup so people won't get confused. That being said, Smile is an alternate. He does have the stats to be 1 seed, but really he is just filling in a seat. If we take him out, the whole bracket must be redone with Byes and people will be MORE pissed off (and everyone would be facing different people as well).

The only alternative you are giving me is "drop people and give everyone Byes". I refuse to run a tournament where half the rounds are byes and I deny late participants access into the tourney as an alternate when I HAVE ROOM.

Ladyjessica technically 'forfeits'

If you refuse to fight your opponent or delay too long (and your opponent signs off) you are dqed.
