Matt Morrison Right, think that's all the fixtures in. You should all have three each, and against three different opponents obviously! Let me know if I buggered any up or missed any. AND GO TEAM! xx
Ian Volante I only got two messages from the tourney owl. Don't know if that's a bad thing.
Ian Volante Oh, I got three. I'm dim.
Matt Morrison Apparently I've set the fixtures to start from tomorrow although I had no idea that was a thing, assumed start date was nothing but a guide, oops. Please wait until tomorrow when they become active in the system proper. Sorry!
Andy Platt Hypothetically if two players, let's call them MW and AP, just, you know, hypothetical names, tried to play their game with a custom set up, would you like them to play it again or is the result OK to stand?
Matt Morrison Haha yeah MW FB messaged to tell me! Sorry Andy completely my fucking fault. For my OCD I'd prefer it if you played again, but if you really don't want to I'd also understand and will just keep score manually.
Matt Morrison Actually kind of both your faults too ;-)
Michael Wallace Oh I'm sorry for being TOO ORGANIZED for you Matthew. (Sorry not sorry.)
Alex Fish Ha, James managed to get a last minute draw in our game by declaring 0 correctly!
Alex Fish think that's the apterous equivalent of a last minute owl goal
Jon O'Neill What's the first tiebreaker after points? GD?
Jim Bentley If so, is it goals scored after that?
Matt Morrison It will be whatever the real world cup is, I did look it up four years ago but I have forgotten to be honest.
Conor Travers From Wikipedia (2014 World Cup): The ranking of teams in each group will be based on:
Conor Travers (top to bottom in order of precedence)
Matt Morrison Thanks for that Conno. Much appreciated. Intend to publish a "so far" ranking of the groups at some point over the weekend.
Kieran Bray Andy Platt v Michael Wallace in Group H appears to be absent
Kieran Bray ok, my bad :)
Andy Platt Cracking spot like
Matt Morrison Yeah I left it up for ages Kieran and removed it yesterday - when I was adding fixtures it wasn't 100% confirmed the result would stand.
Ian Volante My result against Brett is showing the wrong way round - I won 6-5.
Ian Volante And Zarte beat me 7-6, that's showing as a win for me. Has something gone odd?
Zarte Siempre ...yeah...
Ian Volante Cool.
Matt Morrison Possibly Charlie has half-reversed something he did earlier? An hour ago all the contestants had  or  behind their names...
James Robinson And my game is completely wrong in colour and scoring!! :p
James Robinson With Matthew Tassier that is :)
Kieran Bray Mine with Matthew Brockwell is wrong too... :/
Matt Morrison Guys, Andy has already reported this as a bug, see his ticket earlier. Feel free to let me know when this happens to a new game but anything already recorded on the group stage diagram on the c4c thread is recorded as ok :)
Jon Stitcher Yeah, I beat Andy! Don't remember doing that but I'm sure I did ;)
Andy Platt Looks sorted now.
Matt Morrison Great progress every one. Just four fixtures left to go.

Ryan Taylor The tourney system seems to have counted it as a win for Oliver. Must be that bug again.
Matt Morrison aww unlucky Ry. well done Oli. well done/commiserations everyone! next round will be up in next couple of days...
Notes from the organizer: With our 32 confirmed entrants we're ready to begin the group stage fixtures.
As soon as the fixtures are published here (which is just subject to photo confirmations - please see aptomail), you can play your games as quick as you like, no need to wait to match up with the real world cup fixture dates or anything.
PLEASE try and have all three of your matches done by June 26th.
Only the score after the first 7 rounds counts as far as the tournament is concerned - apterous will force you to continue to find a winner but only the result of the first 7 rounds matters for tournament scoring.
Ran from: 5 – 26 June 2014. Format: Apterous World Cup. Matches: One-off. Approved.
Fixtures: 47. Completed: 47.
