however, if he keeps going off on weekends, and you keep playing first turns in unlimited games for him, then yes, that could be interpreted as violation of rules(this has been the case some year ago, but from what i know, Moonchild has start playing his moves over the weekends too. so unless he again get sudden case of illness known as "not playing first movesitis", you are OK)
He will be absent from today until Sunday. For cases like that (known short vacations) there are 2 solutions:
1. Sitter plays opening turn.
2. Games where he plays getting delayed for several days.
In my opinion (2) is much better because benefit is that it is more fair because original player plays his opening turn (more fun for him as it should be) and also, there will not happen that someone who may be better skilled on particular map/settings than original player plays opening turn, in which case his team got unfair advantage over opponents.The only benefit of option (1) is game being not late by 4 days.
According to rules, option (1) is obviously correct, and I think rules are bad because of that, but I will follow the rules regardless what is my opinion about them.
How about the thirs solution of someone else in the game?
Maybe a C&A rep should take a look at this again...
This is why I asked qwert for solution to the problem, and HE as organizer says if Moonchild joined while he was not still on vacation and if vacation is so short then it is ok for him to play.
For example, the same issue happened in KORT vs TFFS war. We asked TFFS if they are ok with delay of some games and they agreed so no problem with sitter playing opening turn will appear there and everyone will be happy and Moonchild will not miss the whole round (which means about one month of fun in playing games) because of only 4 days absence. This is the simplest solution which follows common sense, in my opinion.
The same thing I wanted to do here (get delay until Monday), and that is what I asked. Organizer answered it is not allowed, but it is ok that sitter plays opening turn for absent person when absence is so short.
If organizer answered for example "it is not ok to delay matches until Monday nor it is ok to play opening turn by sitter, I suggest that player in question skip this round" then we would do accordingly to answer from the organizer. That is purpose of asking, no? To know official opinion by official person what is ok and what is not ok. I had asked for rules clarification on the time when zero his games of this round had started so if answer from organizer was different, we would do different.
Before any game was started I quoted answer from organizer and said "You clarified all here so if anyone will complain about my sitting for him only in round 1, I will redirect him here to your explanation of rules." so according to that I am redirecting anyone who has issue to organizer's clarification of rules:viewtopic.php?f=441&t=185753&start=300#p4244966
