Wow, this forum has never been so quiet with a big game coming up. I can hear crickets!

It's the summer and everyone is MIA. Might have been bad timing to try to pull this off.

Right now, I have two people showing up to practices, including myself. One of the players on my team has never responded to a single ping since the draft was done, three of them have not checked in for at least two weeks, and several others have been too busy to be involved.

So, we are going to show up with what we have on Saturday. We literally might have two players, or we might have four or five (all but two of which have not used any of the scripts or done a single startup practice with us.) If we have two, we will probably concede graciously at that time, and there is no tourney. Hopefully we'll have at least enough to make it a game; I'd guess the odds are 50-50 at best right now.

I hope they show for you, good luck!

I'm glad you had all 9 show up, despite Hammer telling everyone earlier in the week that he was struggling to get enough players and he might only have four, and therefore it was not fair to allow me to replace one of my nonexistent players who never responded from day one.

Good deception I suppose, but I feel bad for you if you all really feel like you need 9 players to beat our five.

We were the ones with one short player, it was 8 - 9.

Our bot hasn't been used seeing as you had a low turnout, so we still have 8 players at the keys.

Good Luck!

FYI: I said you could replace a player after we see who turns up. I'm not going to agree to you to swap in a corpmate before we know. We had 4-5 practicing when we talked, in the end the others all turned up. If you have your 5 or so regular permacorp guys that ruins the big game experience IMHO.

also apologies, I've not been home at all today, I've had to spend the day down at my volunteer job. So I've not read ICQ, I thought I could get home but haven't. So anything important best to contact MD or someone on fed space.

I'm ok for you to swap someone in if that is still an issue.

I'm still not going to be seeing my ICQ for another few hours, logged in to a work laptop which has no twar stuff.

hence I'm in a merchie at Terra.

For the record I told Shadow he could replace Big D. last night since no one has heard from him in over a month. It was my call and I made it.
