The Olympics have arrived. :) Wonderful! I was thinking, however, that somebody needs to found an Olympian team tournament. ;)

games were created and were filled. the people running these events are doing it out of the kindness of their heart and on their own time. be thankful for what you get and shut up.

if they want to invest more time and effort into creating more games, then they will do it and you should be grateful if this happens. and even if that doesn't happen, you should still appreciate the fact that each and every one of the people that organised this event have done for this site much more than you'll ever do.

My family is on vacation this week. I didn't get home until late last night, and I was out all day today at a water park.

Please respect the fact that I have an outside life as well. You'll get the games when you get the games.

the same problem happens event after event. there are never games to join. you would think even after trial and error that someone would figure this out. Now we have 50 some games sitting there that nobody is interested in playing. Christ, you dont need common sense to see the same thing over and over. I bet if this was a paid event the mods would be all over it. Right, Dimy boy?

now, when where there be 1 vs 1's ?

the problem is in the eye of the beholder.
i personally see no problem with how the games were setup. considering the fact you get something for free you should be thankful for what you get.
you know, if you're such a smarty pants, you could join the entertainment team and enlighten everybody with your wisdom on how to run the events and perhaps even run some yourself.

right, johnny boy?

Please do not tell me how to do the task I've been doing for over two years.

The last time I had Official Games, was for the Titanic. I made just as many, and some games did not fill and players that were in those games were SOL. To prevent that from happening here, I made 60 (which is not really a small amount, considering many were 6-8 players) and left it at that.

Now that they were filled, I doubled the event and adjusted accordingly. That is much better than having 40 games sit there and not fill and having more players SOL again.
