    Me and Hip have arranged to play tomorrow. I'll keep looking for FM on IRC, but I haven't seen him recently. I'm sure we'll run in to each other sooner or later. Not seen Jlei2k at all so I'll drop him a PM now.

    sigh, this is part of the reason why I've stopped playing tourneys. I just don't have the patience nor the time nor the empathy to spend hours people down to play games.

    T-Lox said he'll be on in his PM at around 1-2 am a majority of the time, I went on a couple of days for some time and he wasn't anywhere to be found, quite frankly I have 8000 better things to do in my nightlife than wait for people to play a pokemon match.

    If zerowing really really wanted to find me online that night Jackal said he was looking for me, he could've taken 30 seconds to open Shoddy Battle and found me. Easily. In fact I'm on right now. I'm not gonna download IRC, a program which I never use and almost caught a virus from, simply to find people

    And lord knows where panamaxis is, he wins two battles and hides under alias all day thinking he'll get a pass. w/e

    Anyway, I'm gonna re-send PMs to get more concrete times. In fact, I'm on right now. Fuck.

    Question regarding the points system. Say 2 people are tied for first place at a 2-1 record (any place for that matter) but one person has beaten the other. Would this still count as a 5pt/5pt split. Seems like the person who beat the other should have the tiebreaker and finish ahead. Nobody I've talked to can give me a clear answer so I'll ask here.

    As you read: according to the rules it's a 5,5 split! Unless jackal changes the rules....

    It's not like it is possible to have two 2-1 records with neither person having defeated the other. Meaning the split rule could only have been made with this scenario in mind.

    Thanks for answering so quickly. And I'll say that sucks and is counter intuitive. I really don't want to play another match in my division since aligning my time zone with Kinneas will be very difficult oh well we'll play on the weekend.

    Exactly since everybody plays everybody there will always be a person who has one over the other. I understand that split if its 3 guys with a 2-1 record and they shuffled loses between one another but if it's 2 guys then the person with the win should hold the tie breaker.
