Am I special
Did I do anything wrong
Is that the reason why you didn't join
Why do you comment my tournaments, while you never have been part of it
As far as I know it is allowed to join your own tournament
The first time I joined one of my own tournaments was because there was one special place to fill, which was clearly worse compared to all other places
Now I do it also when I use clear simple setups with specific games-settings of which it otherwise is difficult to find good games. In fact I hardly join tournaments or games for winning them, but more for the fun. My fun is getting to understand how the people would react in the games and tournaments and based on my predictions of that make my next turn; so yes in the end I have more fun when I win, but that is not the starting point
In the example you mentioned it is simply a 3x3-bracket of a 3x3 windmill, hardly to make more simple tournaments
No, no, no, and no! I was trying to COMMEND you for having the sense to step back a bit from your own tournament. You make sure to play the role of player and the role of organizer separately. And when you join a tournament, it is not a simple win 5 games for a medal, it is a long, detailed tournament. I was comparing the way you conduct yourself as the example of, in my opinion, the right way to run tournaments.
And I play your tournaments when I can! viewtopic.php?f=91&t=97496#p2225806 which was an awesome tournament, by the way.
And I wish people could read Barterer's posts, I swear I can but then three posts later everyone is back arguing about medals again.
