That was the default name assigned by the bracket site. If you have a better name, I am open to suggestions.

Rehab bracket?

So many teens playing in the NASF tourney.

 

Probably due to the fact that US markets game towards kids

Yes that is the truth there.  This is a game mostly played by 10-15 years old and once they grow up they, forget about our game.  We need to keep these young players and hope they will continue to play when they are older.  When I was 10 to around 14 or so, I used to play but once I got older and lost my board never played it again until 5 years ago

Well it looks like the start of another week. We had some very interesting things happen this round. An upset or two along with a very tough battle a lot of us were curious of the outcome. I see some low ranks fighting it out and proving themselves. This has been a very exciting tournament thus far.

 

Good skill to all of you during your next battle and may the best man win.

March Madness is coming and we aren't talking basketball!  Tell your North American friends no matter their playing skill to join the NASF and be a part of the up coming excitement! We are looking for 64 players for this event!  Spread the word!

 

More details to come soon!

There should be a way of sending emails out to all players inviting them to play. Word of mouth and the handful of people on the forum will not cut it. There must be an email list that admins can use to promote the game and tournaments.

Well I could ask the site if they would be willing to send out a mass E-mail, but  then again many people don't even get E-mails because they choose not to receive anything.  However, talking on the game site will help too. I been trying to talk to some of our players during matches but, 1/2 of the time they don't even reply.

The email method at this time requires admin assistance. The Moderators cannot send emails as we do not have access to that information. Besides the problem Midnightguy notes, this step in the process could prove very inconvenient for quick dissemination.

A fabulous thing would be if we could just get a "Click Here to See Tournaments" banner placed on the game side. This banner would contain a forum link to, say, the main forum page where the tournament section of the forum should be obvious.

Yes Gary  it would be great if when you start the game site, there is a "home page" showing links where you can go too and some would be listing for events.

Seems like we have poor ELO in the NASF. Astros is the highest with around 900, then it seems like Chewtoy, Wogomite, and about 5-10 ELO 600-700 players.

 

Like 5 platinum spies- Will Wallace, me, match, Midnightguy

Since there is no email confirmation I could open an account with any bogus email. It would take days to weeks just to sort through all the bounced emails, but the company doesn't want that. They are selling eyeballs to advertisers. Even though there may be 100,000 fake accounts they can extrapolate the amount of valid ones and sell ads according to that. There is no incentive for them to justify how many real players they have or clean out the mess they have created. What does the phone app cost? 1.99? This is such a poor business plan that they need at least a million users. That is not going to happen so I have to assume they will sell games in bundles.

Also Rome was not built in a day. It will take years to grow the NASF.

Are are way too many aliases on this site.  There has to be something done to cut down the number of people making accounts and not being held accountable.  If the site decides in some way to become a pay site people can then pay to have additional accounts.

Just checking Napoleon's silver ranking, I see that I, chew toy, and the prof, joseph white, and gains Marius, and wogomite all have close to 800 ELO.

MidnightGuy if this were to become a subscription based site it would cut down about 95% of the amount of bogus accounts. Plus there should be an email confirmation. Alas, the owners have no interest in fixing anything and apparently never have.
