Having to play a couple of extra rounds for the losing team is not a big deal in this case as it has a purpose.
In my understanding, the holding hostage rule was mostly implemented because some people toy around with others and make them "suffer" letting them half dead and not finishing them with no other reason than revenge or playing evil. I've seen some pretty nasty things reported in the C&A with priceless gamechat.. this obviously harms the community, but I don't think it does for people making a game last 1 round or 2 to maximize their points and win a tournament. I think that the people that noticed this loophole should've asked sempai if it was ok just to make sure of his intention.


The point is to see how close the 2 team's natural play styles match up. Some players are aggressive and so their games end a lot earlier than more passive teams who take less risks.
Getting more points because you hold a player hostage is stupid; anyone can hold another player hostage and get the exact same # of rounds, but that's like saying all synchronized swimmers only have to finish the race at the same time- they can be anywhere in the pool until then.

The people who noticed the loophole, and took advantage of it, aren't being penalized at all= sempai is just going to count up what their score should actually have been instead.

I will admit - I never noticed the loophole lol I didn't read how any of it was scored, just played to win and figured the points would come accordingly lol

ANNOUNCEMENT:

Since finding reserves for this tourney has become much more of a pain than I am willing to deal with, I have developed a new method for dealing with empty spots created by players who withdraw or are removed.

FROM NOW ON:
If a player is removed or withdraws from the tournament, one of his teammates will replace him. Which teammate this replacement is will be decided among the remaining teammates.

ok, here's an update regarding the 3 teams that are looking better for a win. sempai, I think serbia is missing a game in synchrized swimming, you might want to resend them an invite. I had taken the game number there when you did the invites, it doesn't exist anymore and 2 players from serbia have only played 2. I reckon Serbia will take the lead after a great day 5. If we lose our last country relay game it's over for us.

update on day 5/7

Nepal (314 after day 4, 1st)
fencing:
1-2 eliminated
show jumping:
2-1
synchronized swimming:
1-5
cross country relay:
2-1
Game 12499192

Burundi (306 after day 4, 2nd)
fencing:
1-2 eliminated
show jumping:
2-1
sychronized swimming:
3-3
cross country relay:
3-3
Game 12494538 decisive!!!

Serbia (296 after day 4, 3rd)
fencing:
2-1 advanced
show jumping:
1-2
synchronized swimming:
5-0
Game 12364865

Thanks for that betiko!
It'll also be interesting to see how sempai's recount of synchronized swimming will affect the rankings- I don't think it'll help Nepal, but it could help Burundi and/or Serbia.
You guys should also be able to win the cross country relay.

it was looking terrible! one of our players lost 3 straight and we were going 1-3 at some point lol! If we were eliminated from the cross country relay this would've been basically over for us! looks like you guys are up for a 3-1 so you should probably make it. guess who you would be facing next round?? ;)

boy that will be intense!

also too bad we lost in fencing vs serbia, we've put them back alive there, when it seemed it was going to be between nepal and burundi for overal victory. And it really looks like all results happened in a way to make all 3 teams as tight as possible till the end!

oh and yeah, no idea about synchronized swimming and scoring, we'll see, but serbia was really impressive there (don't know if they're going to be sent their 6th game though)

My apologies for not posting earlier. The game in question (POR v SRB - SJ) was dropped because one of the Portuguese show jumpers was removed from the tourney. A replacement has been found and the game has been remade and is currently in Round 2.

The synchronized swimming game in question is being played by the two countries' show jumping doubles teams. That's what I wanted to make clear.

All games that had been dropped have now been remade and invites have been sent out for them.
Hopefully these invites will be accepted quickly, and we can get on to day 6.

Day 5 action in fencing, shooting, and the cross-country relay is finished.
There are still 4 active show jumping games and 10 active synchronized swimming games.
There is also one synchronized swimming game that is still waiting for a player, but that game should be filled and underway soon.
