But yeah, looking forward to it very much! Hopefully I'll manage to take a few scalps.


Remember, DIAS off doesn't mean you have to agree to the draw! It just means other players are free to wuss out if they so choose. ;)

(I also belong to the contingent that thinks DIAS should be the only way to play, but as it's not, and those were not the terms of the tourney... another time, perhaps.)

Average PureDip rating of the 75 76 player main roster is 1186.
I have other numbers... that I won't share at this time :P.
Game A assignments coming very soon! :)

At this point I'm pretty sure we're all just waiting for the 100th signup.
Apparently I'm a Classicist. Huh. That's fun I guess

Just one more :).

Also, if you'd like to try to guess what the quote is, make sure you do so by PM to me only (not by post) if your Game A has not finished, again, so as to not break game-player anonymity.
I may announce who successfully guesses it.

Hey Sinny - what are you thinking for timing on kicking off the B games? Another week or so?

Great start so far - you're doing an amazing job holding this all together.

...and I just realize I've been ignoring your detailed and super helpful PM on game B timing etc. You are all over this.

Keep up the great work.

Sort of surprised we've only had two games finish so far. From looking through the games, I think we might see a rush of games ending in the next week or so...

Hopefully this is a pleasant calm before the storm for Sinny. You can sit back, relax, and watch us all hack away at each other in the games, before the chaos of scoring and preparing for round two.

I was surprised by the same thing! I am enjoying the tournament thoroughly though! Even though I lost my first game!

Peace
