Neither the rules of this war nor the rules of the tournament provide how long a clan has to join games. This is something that could have been negotiated between the clans but was not. At this point, although it is completely up to the TO, the CD Team would not encourage forfeits (as our policy is to avoid them at all costs).
As an aside, RA should get the games joined asap and should probably not be waiting for players on vacation. Also, if the games expire, as suggested by VioIet earlier, a forfeit would probably be the appropriate sanction.
Thank you for getting in here quickly chemefreak and clarifying a few things. Sadly tournament organiser is not able/willing to step in and make a decision. Or hasn't been to date. Would it be possible to either have this thread moved to tournaments if it is not clan department sanctioned, or for clan mods to help mc, maybe he has real life issues. Running a tournament and letting the person who says no the most dictate terms is not right. Could that be a new policy
being rolled out.
So unlike some people I do have a real life and yes I do volunteer on here, so just because its been over 12hrs for me to respond doesn't mean I can't run it. Instead of quoting everyone here is what I am going to say.
@BG - I don't even know you and didn't realize that you were a leader in ATL. No I don't need help from the CD''s because I had a busy day and just because I haven't said anything doesn't mean that inaction is a decision. If my busy day has inconvenienced you then by all means feel free not to participate in an event that I run. Should there be a rule on when games should be made? It wasn't stated in the NC4 rules as this is supposed to be a little more relaxed tournament as was stated in the signup thread. Yes maybe I should have made a game exchange rules but your leaders didn't think of it either as this point is clearly stated - " Clans will work out all other details between themselves (who is running the war thread and in how many sets are the games being played)" and you didn't put any dates on when the 2nd set will start. Just saying
@Vioiet - I agree that is a long time for games to be filled - most wars games are filled within just a few days and never usually more than a week. Since ATL doesn't want to wait any longer then these games need to be filled within 24hrs.
@chemefreak - thanks for stating the CD's position and letting this be worked out.
@everyone else - Due to clans not being able to work this kind of stuff out the next NCC will probably have a games exchange rule.
