Invites for last slot sent to ciddler and avguste.

First come, first served. Let's get this show on the road. Cool

To any who miss out: This, hopefully, won't be the last time I run one, so keep me as a friend on and next time we're running one you'll get first invites.

CCP Ginger Beard Guy has filled the last slot instead. Very Happy

The tournament seems to have automatically begun once we hit 16/16, so we're off!

Good luck, and have fun!

For those who have an iPhone, might I suggest the "" app? It actually makes it easy to know when it's your turn and you can play from your phone. Rather nice actually.

Oh well. next time around

I'll hit you up for a game in the meantime Ikki. Cool

Also I realized that making this tournament rated works out well in another way. Because the groups are arranged by rating, by the time this tournament is over, everyone who participated will be rated much more accurately, so any future tournaments would be much better balanced from the start.

Very nice on your second game Dropbear, had me worried there for a while.

I was tempted to continue playing after your reference to booze, but your night is actually my morning, so I decided to get some sleep instead Wink

On a sidenote, using the "Tactics trainer" on that site actually gets (or loses) you rating points. Isn't that a bit strange?

If you want to play in the meantime Epoch just let me know. I am having difficulty typing, you guys should play me during these hours when it takes me 20 tries to get my password correct!

Or to even select the right alt. Damn you me for not biomassing that thing for when we had to remake that stuff. And tdouble damn forums for post waiting wth is that? :(

And then while I wait, why isn't damn allowed on the forumz? It's not that bad a word.

AH HAH! I almost forgot to select the right alt again.

Edit: Ok damn is allowed O.o

Good games Tibbs. You totally rocked my face there.

I think Estel Arador has me. Tried to push the offensive in my games and was met with rock solid defences. Now the attack is turning into a nightmare of overextension... Laughing

Actually, it gets frustrating, having to build up an attack so slowly against careful defence. I don't think I have the stamina or patience for that level of play just yet. You might have noticed that I just went for it, Estel...hehe.

Anyway, barring any discoveries in my analysis, you might see me fold shortly. Very well played, I must say. I think you and Vobard will make for a great round two showdown. Very Happy

Posted - 2011.03.20 06:55:00 - [58]

Estel was indeed a tough opponent. :(

If anyone is interested in an easy going game I am free to play a few while waiting on this first round to finish up. I know you guys are evil and want to blow me away so here's your chance!

Posted - 2011.03.20 08:28:00 - [60]

^^^ Forgot again to change that alt post thing so I'll just biomass it tonight.
