Smack in the face or not, it is true :) (the him disconnecting part, but most people do this when they will lose a lot of points).
Thanks for telling me how to work it out properly though, my DC rate is actually lower than I thought so I might actually rank this time.
I think I could have come close to Ruben's score but most of my DCes happened on the final day of the competition. I got 3-4 in a row and then was stuck in a position where I needed to try and raise my score to get higher in the rankings, but was constantly paired with people who disconnect (mainly 1800s players) so it was impossible for me to improve. It was nothing to do with my team or my ability to play well, simply the flawed competitive system used for the tournament. I can't always complain about this as it effects everyone, but sometimes it's the luck of the draw. Some players get lucky by facing few DCers overall which allows them to DC when they do lose against good players who are at that time far lower ranked.
Also, I had work every day this competition was on except for the final day, in which I only gained about 70 points anyway because half of my games were disconnections. So, I wasn't able to just sit there and smash it all day and night.
Rant over :) I would be more than happy with a top 20 finish.
But to Ruben, I don't get why you're being so bitter and defensive either. I'm only joking around for the most part because you make posts that are exactly the same, it's your character and attitude and everyone seems to accept it. But when someone else is the same, you don't. You know that quite a few of your disconnections were you and not your opponent.. So I don't get it. I know you're not trying to hide it, but you always try to shift the heat when things like that happen. Just accept that if you do win, you basically cheated your way to the top in some people's eyes. If you can be happy with that and still feel some sense of achievement, then congratulations I guess.
