Re: Whac-A-Mod 3 Weekend -- EXTENDED!

All your arguments are wrong because the truth is that just before the event Lack ordered to find the best players from the site and recruit them as mods for the upcoming WAM . The whole event is about farming on you - the community :-$ (Of course, why I'm in the team, I don't know; I guess everybody makes mistakes)

That said, I really hope that you've enjoyed the games as much as I have. I've met some great players who took their loss with dignity and at the same time had a chance to help skilled players earn a medal. For me, the weekend was everything that I'm looking in CC - to have fun.


Note. There are still a few team games looking for players (page 1, post 2), contact the appropriate entertainer if you are interested, everybody are welcome! They won't be up for long (2 City Mogul doubles, 1 WWII Europe triples and Bamboo Jack, Dawn of Ages, Archipelago & Brazil quads).

Edit. Some singles are also available, go check them out through Game Finder.

I thought it was weird that so many people were made mods recently :mrgreen:

Clearly, you were recruited for your diplomatic skills. ;)

:D Well, I did consider adding an intimation that she may possess skills other than merely diplomatic, but I wasn't sure whether amazzony would appreciate that sort of comment from another woman. I'm sure you're both very... talented.

It never occurred to me that she wouldn't appreciate it from another woman. I totally appreciate her as eye candy as well as diplomat. ;)

I guess I'm not like most grrls here. ;) ;) 8)

In oh so many ways...

People weren't limited to one game. They were asked to limit themselves to 1 win, to give others a chance at the medal.

This competition is no different than any other competition where they ask people not to be hogs about it; to give others a chance.

Honestly, I don't understand why people are getting upset about being asked to limit themselves to getting a medal, since only 1 medal will be given to each winner regardless the games. As for it being weighted toward the mods.. you're kidding, right? Last I looked, no mod was conqueror and damn few keep a high rank. Seems weighted toward the community, since they didn't limit those who could join games to a certain rank. Or are you suggesting that a mod is the only one with skills on the maps each mod selected?

Thanks for hosting the games, mods.

The Sportsmanship Rule

As there are only a limited number of moderators and a rather large number of public members, we are asking that everyone be courteous and play in only one game at a time. If you want to join game after game, that is fine, but please do not join multiple games at once in order to keep spots available to as many people as possible. Once you successfully whac a moderator, we ask that you step away and let others have their chance at getting a medal, so as to give as many people as possible the opportunity. If you are found to be hogging game slots you may be in danger of not receiving a medal at the end of the competition. All of the moderators will be trying to play as many games as they can manage during the time of competition to give as many people a shot as possible.

Well, I think I remember noticing a post from you referencing D&D so, I think it's safe to say you're not like most girls. (You're clearly much cooler. 8-) ) Here? Dunno. Don't even know how many girls there are on here. I'm guessing, percentage-wise, not a lot, but there are a lot of members so....

Seems like the mods have an unfair advantage here. They get to keep beating up on the small guys, while those of us who won our first game didn't get a chance to run up the score on our side. Just sayin' ;)
