Good you can +1 as thanks and buy me a drink in the future
+1 = done (a while ago).

Could we get the list of semi-finalists? I understand that the tournament rules are anon per game, but the pool of participants was not and should not be? Knowing the pool of participants seems key in any tournament, doesn't it?Similarly to other anon games where you often know which 7 players are involved in a game, without knowing them in the game.

Thanks again!

I've made the second games for this round. Please join immediately. I don't have time to nag at you guys to join this round so if you don't join within a reasonable time I'm just going to replace you with no warning.

Hey if anyone needs a pause for WDC or DipCon (and is obviously attending the tournament(s)) please let me know asap and you'll get a pause that doesn't eat up on your pause time.

That being said, I don't have mod powers anymore and I haven't been made TD for the second set of round 2 games so I can't even see through anon let alone pause the game for y'all. So if you have any requests concerning those you'll have to message the mods. Thanks guys.

Shoot us a list of the new games in the email and someone will get those permissions setup.

Sorry I don't have access to a laptop! You did it for me the first time, can you just do it again? It shouldn't be too hard to find the games. Thanks :)

Or just mod me for the duration of the tournament. Whatever is easier for you!

Sorry emails can be sent from a phone!

Whatever's easier is what follows mod policy. Which is emailing us for requests. Which is made clear to everyone.

What.. I'm literally running a tournament for the website lol. I'm not copying and pasting links to email you guys while I'm living off a backpack in Eurasia when it'll take you all of 5 seconds to do it. If you don't want to do it, you deal with the requests. If you want to change the rules on how I've been running this tournament midway through the tournament then the least you can do is not make it annoying for me.

Last time I had time to do it myself personally so I used my db access to pull what I needed. Now I've trained other mods on how the tournament tool works and do not have time, or access currently, to the DB to pull the same info. Being a mod or not has no difference on the tournament tool being setup. If you don't have time to find the game ID's please contact the mod email and they can help you find a co-director to aid you while you are away from the tech needed to run the tournament. I don't have the time to help but I just checked and a few of the mods will have time to help you find a co-td.

A reminder for those yet to join: the TD said she'd replace you without warning, some time around tomorrow.

Hello Everyone,

The moderator team has taken over running the tournament with the help of captainmeme due to the TD and selected co-td not having the time or necessary access to keep up with the games. From here on out, please direct all requests and needs to webdipmod@gmail.com. We have also turned on WFO mode in all the games. Please make sure not to trigger it: delaying a game more than 3 times will result in being replaced in the tournament. We'll have the 2nd set of games in this round up and running shortly.

Best of luck in the tournament!

Hi all,

It's been brought to our attention that R2 games 1-4 have 48 hour deadlines while R2 games 5-8 have 36 hour deadlines. Because games 1-4 have been underway, we are changing games 5-8 to 48 hour deadlines for consistency.

All round 2 games are now underway. I hope you all have better luck than I did in round 1.

Anyone else feeling that this pause thing has got out of hand? I understand the intention behind it but it seems to be playing out in quite an aggressive fashion

The way I think about it is hey, any time they have that they're using up now, they can't use later. Although it sucks now, I think the pace will speed up afterward.
