You and your clanmate are squeezing people out of the market - in all likelihood a lot of freemiums who would love a chance at winning even just 3 months membership. At least in a BR or HA's tourney they have an equal shot just as anyone else, but with the tactics you've employed you are effectively trying to corner the market.
It just struck me as something that didn't befit your rank, your status (premium) and your profession, but hey ho that's just me I guess. Vive la difference!
Well, I think we will have to agree on disagree on that one. The extention to which one person can use his own rights (like me creating 40+ games, which I can) and eventually affect other people negatively (every fremium that was not online to claim game 1885 as their own) varies by place. The site is, as far as I know, canadian, the foundry head lives in USA/UK (not sure right now), you live in Hong Kong and I live in Brazil. If 4 different people with different cultures were asked about what means should be allowed towards the goal of claiming a specific game number, I'm sure we'd get 4 different answers (just to illustrate, someone could say we'd have to create only one game and pray that it was the right one, someone else could say 5, a third person could say 50, as long as all created games end up being played and a 4th person could say if the site is not coded in a way to prevent it, then it's ok to do it). That said, vive la difference
, I suppose.
About status and profession, as I said before, I didn't do this to get premium myself. I'm just waiting for Mr. Benn to confirm which game is the rightful 1885 one so I can invite fremiums and give them the chance. About rank, and this I found particularly odd and interesting, do you really think high brigs/low generals
have a specific behavioral tendency? What would that be?
Let me know if you want to change your line-up.
