I've never had this happen in one of my tournament games, and there have been a lot of my tournament games.

Although thre has been a workaround, foes no longer apply to tournament games. Hope this makes running & participating in tournaments a little bit smoother :)

I prefer the option of removing myself or opting out of the tournament rather than be forced to play a game with one of the very few ppl i've foed.

Re-enable foelist for all games

Postby stahrgazer on Tue Dec 29, 2009 8:59 pm

Concise description:
    Return the old settings where someone who has a foelist can be sure that they will be ASKED to unfoe rather than unknowingly end up in a tourney or royale game with someone they have foed.

Specifics:
    A recent change makes foelist invalid for tournament games.
    Each player should have a right to determine who he/she will or will not play with.
    If the player is unwilling to unfoe someone, then that person should be given notification in advance and allowed to leave a tournament rather than be forced automatically/blindly into a game with someone he/she does not wish to play with.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
    Personal choice.
    Keeps an individual's foelist intact.

If you don't want to play with them, resign from the tournament.

There are tons of people on the site that foe anyone that beats them.
There are several people on the site that have the top 10 pages of the scoreboard foed.

If either of these join, odds are that battle royals will never fill and if they do, no captains or above will be able to join. Personally, I enjoy battle royales and would like to be able to join them.

As for tournaments, you either take them off foe, or resign the tournament. 99% of people never pick the later, and all this does is delay tournaments. I don't see why we should encumber the majority to have to deal with sending PMs back and forth and taking people off foe lists and putting them back on for the minority to not have to check the profiles of a couple of members to see if they have them foed.

You still have a choice, you can not join tourney's with people on foe, and can resign if one joins tourney with you, if you really want.

It is possible that some may try to take advantage of other players, by joining every tourney they join, but im sure they will get warned for that when if it happens too often.

The reason why it was changed, is it gave a player too much power over someone they foed. They could block them from tourneys, and block them from battle royales, and theres nothing to say they deserved to be foed in the first place. Now however, you have a choice of who to play still. Further, in a tourney, the rules are typically more strict, so there is no real chance that someone is going to hassle you too much, without being thrown out anyways, and suiciding into you is already against the rules, so really, this is the lesser of the two evils, and more fair than the old system generally speaking.

But the "tournament foe fix" didn't change your ability in this fashion. If you were in a tournament with someone you had foed, you would be asked to "un-foe them or resign from the tournament"...and you still have the option to resign from the tournament. So honestly, this fix doesn't impact your personal choice in any way, but it DOES speed things up in that it avoids the tournament organizer from having to PM you to ask you your choice and then having you tell them to remove you from the tournament.
