Read quote below concerning games no joined. I do agree that it could turn into an unfair advantage for people that wait it out. Other tourneys that I have done with this format receive a warning and they have to match up either by getting out of the map they are on or by someone joining them.

For now on this is how I will run it:

24 hour warning will go out to the players that have no fulfilled a win or games played total for the round.

After that I will allow players that have advanced to join and knock out players waiting--but the map will be random with CC default settings.--This means I will do all by pm or by thread--whichever is easier. This will only happen to the players that are in games that did not start because of a join--not for the players that choose to join one game at a time and then run out of time and are not in an existing game. This will happen when I take the games down.

Although I have had too much personal things going on which are way more important than CC--I would like to try and stick to the one week to join games guideline.

I had one player in games that needed to play to advance--I will play that player in one game and the person who wrote this email will play in one game to finish round 23.

I will have the next round start today.



Hi HA,

I am just going to share with you my approach about this message, because I think you can do better decisions in running the tournament.
In my opinion, players who Joined games but cannot match any opponent are actually in unfair advantage over other players. why?

1. They will for sure play their the strongest map, as they choose to join those and do not drop out.
2. They will maybe get weaker opponent in you than they would get if someone legal player joined. It is not about your playing ability, but is about if someone choose to join, probably he is good at the map, and for you it can happen (in some next round, if you continue to be spoiler with the same principle like now) that there will be some hard map that you have never played so then those players will actually gain unfair advantage in comparing with other players, who both has opponent who choose to join a game, so probably skilled at the map.

What I suggest?

I agree with your "last chance message" that you wrote above, but I think you should have an addition to the message, if someone of active players in tournament who has already played his 3 games wants to volunteer for some map, then he can join 4th game, which would act only as game counting for first player. The player who joins still can gain something, and it is eliminating one opponent from the tournament, so he would not play without a purpose for himself. so you give 24 hour notice, like you did, but if someone of active player states in thread or pm within those 24 hours that he is willing to play that map, then give him to play, and you join only if noone states that he would like to play. on that way, those last players in the round will also get strong opposition which is probably good at the map.

This is especially regarding your recent CC inactivity, so probably there are some of new maps that you have never played, and therefore the players would get obvious starting advantage over other players in the tournament if they play vs you.

If you agree with my suggestion, then I would like to volunteer playing in Game 11913839

Anyway, thanks for running this one, it is my favorite on CC ever. ;)

Kind Regards

Postby HighlanderAttack on Tue Dec 11, 2012 9:33 am

PM to join round 24 has been sent out--read below:

Before joining round 24 please read.

I will try and set time frames--and try to stick to them with no guarantees.

If your game has not started nearing the time to end the round and take down games you will receive a warning--it is your responsibility to get in a game that starts--if you have games left to play you will also receive this warning. If you are in a game that does not start and it is time for me to take down the round--you will get a random map with default settings invite--someone advancing will get a chance to knock you out.

Remember to join no more than three games total and try and stay away from the same player in the same round. Try not to join the same player from the previous round as well. I am just looking for patterns --not illegal to join the same player, but illegal to cheat by making deals--I will catch you if you try this :).


Enough with the logistics. You know how to play this tourney by now--so have at it and good luck.

The link to join games is below.
