Rhys Benjamin Guessing aptoSOS has died then.
Matt Morrison God damn. Fuck me.
Matt Morrison My tourney licence should be revoked.
Ronan M H Pls bring this back :/
Matt Morrison I will. In time. Let's get this one done though.
Ronan M H :)
Ronan M H will there be an APTO SOS:08?
Ronan M H Seeing as these fixtures are now finally completed.
Tim Down Sorry to be a killjoy but I'm no longer playing tournament games against humans, at least for the foreseeable future, so I suggest handing this one straight to Zarte.
John Beresford Zarte isn't a human.......
Matt Morrison I would usually fight you Tim but unsurprisingly I'm pretty sick of this tournament too haha. Have replaced you with James.
Elliott Mellor Is this ever going to happen?
Matt Morrison I do hope so. Z and J are both still using the site. Charlie kindly extended the tournament last time, but it still didn't get played. Maybe I didn't hassle the 2 players enough. I'll try again! Would be good to get it done, aptoSOS used to be such a good tournament! :-(
Zarte Siempre I pretty much only log in to the site for Lexploring things on occasion now Matt.
Fiona T Sounds like we have an all Oldham final then!
William R Draper If Elliott withdraws then I think we need to start checking the drinks that James is giving his opponents :)
James Haughton I'm not going to put anything in Elliott's drink, William.
James Haughton I've had a bit of a hiatus from Apterous, but I'm planning to get back into the swing of things soon, so this tournament will be finished!
John Beresford James lost in the first game, Zarte doesn't want to play. Not really a tournament worthy of credibility IMO. Prob best to scrap it.
Matt Morrison Even if it's the shittest tournament ever, it still deserves to be finished, and I'd like to close the fucking book on it too. I agree it's pretty awkward that James will be through to the final after losing in the quarter final, but at this point the way it's worked out there's no other possible final as I see it. I'll certainly take a bunch of the credit for not chasing people up enough but I've also been pretty unlucky with dropouts this time round, which I guess is always a potential problem with long-form tournaments.
Matt Morrison If I ever run this fucker again - and damn, when it runs well it's been really good - I'll do my bit better. Sorry everyone.
John Beresford Nothing to apologise for, Matt. It's just a bizarre set of circumstances. Imagine what the EFL are going through, trying to work out whether to promote Leeds or not :)

Philip Aston I think the problem is that quite a lot of decent players use Apterous as a training aid to prepare for the show. Once they’ve finished a Series or a Championship of Champions, most don’t feel the burning urge to come on here and train anymore, particularly if they’ve achieved their goals and have nothing else to prove. They’re done.
Ronan M H And it's all over
Matt Morrison It is now.
Ronan M H So when will SOS 8 start?
Notes from the organizer: Thanks to everyone who took part in series 7. As usual, I was a bit of a shit at times. So were some of you lot. But we've got here, now let's finish her off. Best of luck to you all!
