I resent these remarks.
1.- The TO has a name.
2.- The TO would have to send 600(!) invites per round!
3.- The TO has published the schedule and sends games out every 2 weeks. If a team of 4 to 6 players can't make sure they all join their games it is definitely not the TO's fault.
4.- The TO gets a lot of PMs too, but has never missed a tournament game.
5.- Maybe the TO should play everybody's games too, than you don't need to do anything at all when you join a tournament.
Sorry Lindax, didn't mean anything by it and in no way am I placing the blame for the misses on you. I know its a pain in the ass (I have run a couple tournaments where I ended up sending over 240 invites at once and it nearly drove me insane), I also know that you do a very good job and that the rules are VERY clear. I have never missed a game either, I check my pm's. I think your system is fine, the only way to foolproof it though is to use the invite system, unfortunate but true. I cannot fathom how people have missed so many games, honestly it blows my mind.
If you need help Lx, just say the word.
