I have never posted on the boards before, but after the end of the Conquer Cup semifinal in which I was a participant, I think it's needed. I've never been an antagnostic or greedy player since I signed up for this site. I guess I don't participate in the forums and such, but I play my games straight and do somewhat ok. I was really proud of myself for advancing as far as I did in the cup, and took it very seriously.
In my final cup game, however, I messed up pretty badly. It was a tight, well-played contest, and I missed a turn! Round 14 or 15 or so. I was really pissed at myself for that, but kept going. My last turn, Round 20, came up on New Years Eve. To my discredit, I had some things to do during the day and decided to leave it until the end of the night. It's being NYE, this meant my taking the turn a little more than half in the bag, at 4 am. My "strategy" was panned by everyone in the game, and rightly so, as I can't even tell you what it was.
I would just like to publicly present an apology to Ciglione, nvanputten, and lokisgal. You all deserved better. How ashamed I should be was made clear in gamechat. I think I'm going to stop playing for a while. Sorry again.
