    Lol they were rooting for us to win but if you check back on the predictions you guy were easily the favourites. What is it with you guys wanting to always play the underdog card lol, you guys earnt favouritism coming into this round and are 4-3 up (for now ;) ), not to mention the only team to have won the world cup.

    I get your point, I'll get in touch with him ASAP. Try and make it 72 hours just because I need time to get in touch with him though.

    I'm pretty sure everyone declared Asia the winner because you and goof were left to win, apparently your names signify a sealed deal. Except I am pretty sure I said it's not over because stranger things have happened (uhhh Latin America anyone?)

    On the record, I never predicted anyone to win.

    Sealed deal huh......I love how everyone "in the know" just thinks me and goof are overrated in every game....I went on hiatus because i stopped caring and I only came back to help Asia in WC,
    but if this keeps up, I might just have the motivation I need to get back in real form, who knows.....

    At the very least I was an "overrated" has-been. You're a never-was.
    Sadly, that's not even in the realm of WC trash talk, it's the damn TRUTH.

    (Sigh, and just when I was starting to build a rep as a nice guy....OH WELL)

    On that note, don't forget to stick husk in the lineup of peeps to beat besides me and goof. Let's go Asia!

    I love you goofball, I really do, but dude why even be on Asia if you aint gonna battle? You're screwing both Asia and Oceania here. Plus its a match up we're all looking forward to and its a total let down so far. I guess you have until tonight (?) to get this done, I hope I eat these words but its really fucked up you aren't playing. It can't be the pressure, you've dealt with the pressure in the past, the only other answer I can find is that you don't give a fuck and you're just dicking around.. and you seem to be enjoying it.

    Anyways, looking forward to the final game.

    Edit: Computer problems also happen.

    Rey..a battle takes like 5-10minutes, I doubt goof is too busy to spare 10minutes..

    It's been 8 days since the deadline, Shiv as the tournament host you say you need 3 more days after the deadline has already been expired for 6? Come on man, what is that?

    Earthworm has been ready for ages, Goofball is the captain of asia, I just expected that someone who applied for captaincy would be interested in actually playing their match or at least giving us a reason why they can't.

    It's been 58 hours since jackals post, so whatever, this is just getting ridiculous now.

    I have told shiv on irc to post a sub for goofball, like I said showing players that deserve respect some respect isnt a good option it seems. It didn't work last year and its not working now. I won't have it.

    goofball is disqualified, Asia needs to post a sub now. If a sub is not posted in 24 hours, asia clearly doesnt give a fuck and I will award EW that win and we will just move onto the tiebreak.

    this is fucking absurd, shiv im kind of pissed at you of all people for letting this happen

    Unnecessary WC trash talk considering I NEVER SAID YOU WERE OVERRATED. As I keeeeep saying, there were stranger things that have happened (again, Latin America anyone?) when it comes to sealing the deal. In other words, it's not over till it's over. So I went against the general consensus of choosing either Asia OR Oceania and, instead, wanted to see this tournament (the best I have ever participated despite our first round loss by the way) end in such a dramatic final. So yeah, your comments are pretty much unnecessary since I didn't even criticize your game. Straighten up please.

    Hell I didn't even know you were on hiatus, how am I "on the know" if I didn't know that in the first place?

    And you know what? Yeah, that's right. I am a never-was. I never won a single damn tournament in my time here on the fucking internet. I never sparked ANY predictions of me winning anything. Hell I am a nobody in this place at this point. All I have is my FUCKING experiences of this stupid game filled with 7 years of feeling horrible of "losing" and "failing to reach" these oh so false expectations. So really, what is your point there? Why call me that when there is no neeeeeeeeed to? Please stop stating the damn obvious because I just finished with this damn game a long time ago. And everyone I consider "ON THE KNOW" knows it.

    Go ahead and come back, I frankly don't care. What are you going to prove to me, and to anyone else, anyway?
