See that's the thing, because I remember Sportsman saying it was Thursday. Am I thinking of something else?

Maybe. I can't remember anyone saying anything was happening on Thursday, but maybe someone at some point said something. Either way, the deadline has been Wednesday throughout the entirety of this event and this already was pointed out once when someone--you, I think(!)--missed a previous deadline.

I don't remember saying it (unless I said Thursday at midnight) but apologize if I did. If you want to want to argue further in your defense EmP and Felix are the ones to argue with but judging by Felix's response I doubt you'll have any success with that.

You should know that it's Wednesday because Felix warned you the last time you missed the deadline!

Look, I'm not trying to argue make excuses, why is everyone jumping to bite my head off? Does missing a deadline mark me as free game to the entire !@#$! community?

Christ, if this is the response I get from asking for clarification, I'll be sure to keep my mouth shut from here on.

I was going to say the rules are clearly posted in the TT Interest Topic.... except I can't seem to find that topic now.

Maybe the rules should be moved to the schedule topic? That would be a good place for it.

I'm not arguing for or against Will here, but just pointing out having stuff like this clearly saved for reference would help prevent things like this from happening. Be proactive, not reactive.

I do think there's been a lot of ambiguity around posting reviews and deadlines and active team members and what not. I'm not saying we should change anything that's already happened this time, but it's all good experiences for next year's TT.

I still can't decide whether I'd like to captain or judge next year, but I want to be a part of it one way or another.

Leave William alone! He's from Canada and thus deserves our pity.

I wasn't trying to be mean if that's how you took my post. Just wanted to make it clear that I'm just here to read the reviews and give my opinions and meeting deadlines and matches isn't my responsibility. So I'm sorry if the review isn't the one you wanted to pick and changing the review and deadline is ultimately up to Felix and EmP.

Sportsman, my comments were no no way directed at you. Unlike every Tom, Dick and Jason who suddenly decided they have a grudge against me, your posts were refreshingly neutral and clear-headed.

This isn't sudden. I've had a grudge against you for a long time. Before I even knew you in fact.

Bastard.

It's worth noting that I was about to assign ranpicks or Vorty and Will before I saw Sporty had donr so. I thought about overulling them so they wouldn;t be on his shoulders, but it seemed pedantic and dumb to do so.

In future, if someone is late to pick, it's probably best I sort it.

On a totally unrelated note, I was looking for how tiebreakers were decided for getting in the playoffs or seeding. Is there a general rule for this? What, of these, takes precedence?

1. head to head record
2. total individual matches won
3. total points in those matches

Maybe head to head record would be the best way to clearly separate the teams? Although I suppose individual matches/points won would be a better indication of which team has performed best over the whole TT (especially if it's a three way tie, if that's possible). Have we ever had a situation in past TTs where a team has tied for playoff spots?

I would guess it would first go by the total number of individual votes a team has gotten. After that, it's anyone's guess.

It goes:


-Team wins
-Total individual wins
-Total votes
-And then road record may be the fourth tie breaker. I can't remember. EmP, do you remember?

Yeah, shame on Jason for chiming in when this contest is taking place on his friggin site!

Dude, relax. People were just trying to clarify the rules. No need to take everything so personally.

Yes, I'm sure the curt sentences and exclamation points were meant to convey only the deepest of manly affections.

The only person trying to clarify rules was me. Everyone else involved in that little feeding frenzy was...well, the analogy speaks for itself.

Currently done with 1/4 matchups (from yesterday) but I don't plan on doing too much tonight so I can probably do at least two more before I go to bed. Maybe even finish but I wouldn't count on that.

I've been down with the flu for the last 5 days. I'm up and about today, but still finding it hard to focus on anything... so I haven't actually started yet. I'll likely be doing shorter comments this round.

Finished 3/4 matchups and gonna head off to bed. I'll be out most of tomorrow but should be able to finish everything before the day ends.

Jerec: was it Swine Flu? Hope you're feeling better soon - flu's bloody horrible.

I've read all the reviews and written about three. Will attempt to do the rest tonight, but it might be tomorrow morning. Either way, it'll be sooner than last week.

I don't think it's swine flu, but it's sure taking me longer to recover than normal. Done 2 matches so far... it's Sunday morning and I don't have to do anything today so hopefully I'll get a fair chunk of this judging done.
