Johnny Canuck

Johnny Canuck I thought the QFs were going to be best of 3; has there been a change of plans?

Ian Birdman

Ian Birdman Yeah let's make it best of 3 :-)

James Laverty

James Laverty I know for a fact I did make them best of three, so I think this might be an apterous error

Karen Pearson

Karen Pearson I don't understand how I am still in this. I thought I was knocked out?

John Slater

John Slater I echo what Karen says

Elliott Mellor

Elliott Mellor Perhaps think of how it words on TV

Elliott Mellor

Elliott Mellor *Works

Ben Andrews

Ben Andrews My understanding of this is that we are in a lower bracket, competing to win that bracket. Everyone whose games are noted '9-16 Final x' is in this.

John Slater

John Slater But I'm in the "Upper bracket quarter-finals, as is Karen, despite losing my previous game, so I still don't get it

John Slater

John Slater Ah, now I see a note on the "Lower bracket round robin" page that says things have changed, so that is presumably why we are listed on the upper bracket page. I'll just keep playing :)

Cillian McMulkin

Cillian McMulkin Hey, so is this still going and I am still involved? The tournament isn't coming up in my tournaments I'm involved in...

Gevin Chapwell

Gevin Chapwell I think it went past the deadline. Though there is a case to be made that it should be extended because the full time wasn't available due to the best-of-three delay.

James Laverty

James Laverty Yeah, indeed I'm letting games pass the deadline, as I would rather have as many games done as possible. They should still appear when you log in

James Laverty

James Laverty Right I'm going to move this on by the weekend as it seems games aren't being played. Just need to work out what is the best way forward

Cillian McMulkin

Cillian McMulkin I'm up for playing the games but they just aren't visible in game play when Sean D and I are in the room together. Not sure why that is..... I would have played the games by now otherwise.

Eoin Jackson

Eoin Jackson I'd play mine too... No objection to 'em. Just a matter of arranging a time that suits both of us, I suppose...

John Slater

John Slater I haven't seen notification in the game window that there is a game to be played, not for a few weeks

James Laverty

James Laverty They've gone off the home page, but still should show up when you log in. Phil doesn't seem to have been on much recently so that might be why.

Cillian McMulkin

Cillian McMulkin That's the problem James, the game isn't showing up when I log in and when Sean D is in the room too. We've been on at the same time a number of times over the last 2 weeks...

Phil Collinge

Phil Collinge You can still play the game and send the link to James for him to add.

James Laverty

James Laverty That's odd, because I still have tourney games from months ago still showing up so guessing it's a bug. Phil C has the best idea I think, if you play a game and send it to me I can add it

James Laverty

James Laverty Right I've decided how to move this on.

All winners in the Upper bracket will move on, and I'll organise a play-off between Zubair and Ben (as the winners in the lower bracket who have played their games) to decide who will join them in the semi-finals. Learnt from this there is no interest in carrying on in losing brackets despite the experiment.

Eoin Jackson

Eoin Jackson There is some interest, not no interest. Had I met Karen in the game room I'd have played it.

James Laverty

James Laverty That's fair enough, I'm happy to continue games in lower bracket if enough people are interested

Karen Pearson

Karen Pearson Eoin and I are actually halfway through our game I think.
Eoin, if you let me know a time you'll be around and I'll do my best to be there.

Alex H

Alex H i'm interested too, just not seen James online since it was arranged

James Rowan

James Rowan I've been away for a while but I'm back now. Unless this has already been moved on I'm happy to do it this evening.

Eoin Jackson

Eoin Jackson Karen, I'm up to my eyeballs with the LC exams, and we have a co:event on Saturday... but Sunday evening and anytime onwards from there would be great.
