    I'd like to thank whistle and the Alpha Ruiners for being great competitors this week. Best of luck throughout the rest of the regular season.

    We'll get 'em next week, boys. :pimp:

    fwiw afaik you said you were gonna be gone for 7 hours four and a half hours ago because you were "going to a party" when the two of you ran into each other before but that maybe youd be able to battle later

    jibaku has been around most of the day and talked to you earlier today...? he is apparently afk for dinner but im sure if you stick around you can get it done.

    I really didn't want to rage this week, but this fucking game just doesn't let me win even when I play as well as I possibly can and probably had it won. GG.

    yeah bluewind got really unlucky and without that luck, we would have had a much closer and more enjoyable game than that shit we just played. i won in a bad game.

    So mind shows up approximately one and a half hour early and I was at dinner, not expecting him to come until around 9:00, approximately 30 minutes before he would supposedly sign on. Mind has to go to sleep now and we can't do our match unless there's an extension =/

    Rundown of what happened:

    Friday, 10:21 AM, Mind VMs me to set up a battle time. He asked when would I want to play (I wasn't there at the time because I was going to uni)

    Same day, 6:35 PM, I replied, saying that I can battle on Saturday. I may be on for most of the time, but between morning till noon I will not be there due to a dentist's appointment

    Saturday, 5:13 AM. Mind asks what time. I guess my previous statement "don't expect me till noon" combined with "may be on for most of the time" wasn't clear. But the question did allow me to rethink my available times.

    Saturday, 10:29 AM. Replied to him that I may not be back till 2:00-3:00 PM due to a delay in the appointment.

    Mind's Last activity at that time: 5:23 AM

    Saturday, 12:46 PM. I returned from the dentist, expecting him to at least get on. Even if he didn't receive my latest message, he should have arrived at around noon because of what I said earlier.

    Mind's Last activity at that time: 5:23 AM

    Okay anyways
    Saturday, 2:28 PM. Mind shows up only to leave me a brief message that he'd be at a party for around 7 hours. (Really should've mentioned this to me earlier).

    This isn't too bad. I could set up dinner at around 7:45 and be done in about an hour at worst. That should get me about 30 minutes before Mind's supposed arrival, right??

    Saturday, 8:01 PM. Mind returns. VMs me a message saying he has to go to sleep soon. I was still at dinner

    Saturday: 8:20 PM. Last message from Mind over irc PM.

    [17:53:15] <@Conflict> I should be good to battle Saturday afternoon, probably any time from 6 to 11 EST.

    Bolded part from zfs. It is now 9 pm EST and 3 am in Conflict's time zone. Conflict made the first effort to contact and zfs gave that proposed time, so now we've been waiting zfs to show up.

    I am not going to complain about luck cause i understand it is a part of the game, and its not worth wasting my breath.

    What I am going to complain about is this waiting until Saturday bullshit. We had 4 battles done coming into today when every single member of my team is constantly on irc in #awoo, a channel that is not invite only specifically for this reason. Furthermore, none of my team members are hard to contact at all, and in previous weeks we were always first to finish our matches.

    With that said, I think it would be completely absurd to even consider giving conflict an activity win in this case, despite the above post. If conflict had even tried to come on irc once all week and look for zfs, he would have found him.

    Not saying zfs should get the activity win either, because he didn't show up after he allegedly gave a time period where he could be online. Furthermore, its not like conflict even stayed online for this whole time period as he signed off after Rocka's battle.

    the only right call is no decision. I am not going to sit here and issue threats, but if Conflict is given the activity win, im not sure why there is any incentive to battle before saturday.

    while no decision is gay for a deciding match...perhaps ln will give a one time exemption for an after the deadline battle if zfs is on within the next few hours past the deadline (like until the next morning) but of course we'll all probably be graced with 'precedent' shouts from the pitchfork crowd

    Conflict is always on irc and on the forums and the fact of the matter is he was the first to even attempt to contact his opponent, zfs made no such attempts. Time becomes an issue when people are across the globe, but then you factor in that zfs himself agreed that that time frame would be fine for him, I think it is plain to see he put forth no effort to even attempt to get this battle done while Conflict is on at 4 am still waiting for his opponent.
