I'm in. Although I'm not entirely convinced by the whole 'try-outs' thing, I'm up for anything that encourages committed play.

Presumably an NMR or CD is an automatic fail, right?

Seriously, though AdmiralGeneral, is the outcome going to be just based on your opinion?

You might want to ask the players in the try-outs for their views on the other players, discretely of course.

And look, Wusti is still smarting at having been properly schooled for spouting off on stuff he doesn't understand

@ CAPT Brad, seems he also mutes those that make him look foolish. Guess that is why he only seems to reference a very few posts in his replies as he must have most of the forum muted.

i have him muted as well. so i have no idea what he says

Would it be appropriate/allowable to have commentary on the biggest game of all time? I ask because it is an anon gunboat game. But it seems like the type of game people could learn from like school of war.

Ghost Ratings and CD Takeovers
Do the Ghost Ratings include games where the player takes over a CD? If a player regularly takes over CDs in a more or less hopeless position does it effectively screw up the player's ghost rating?

And, finally, why do I keep taking over hopeless CDs and should I seek professional help?

Talking to other Players
Just wondering what other people think about how to communicate to other players. Some players go over the top and just write way to much, in my opinion. On the other hand there are people, like me, who keep it direct and to the point. Which way is best?
