GG, Shoogie had a very risky and irritating strategy. Regardless, I lost and he won so I guess it worked. A very long and tight game, down to the very last few pieces.

GG josephwhite! I won the game.

 

I have made joseph impatient a bit with a defensive style. I took with a captain two small pieces in the beginning. I found out about his major and then I took with a colonel the major. I was not a lottonoob. I had a crazily unusual setup that made joseph lose all his miners and small pieces. Afterwards I was just roaming around with the colonel as I had two captains and 1/2 majors up and I was up in small pieces (5-7 pieces up in total at that point). Just wanted to find his marshall.

 

Wouldnt call that too risky. Joseph is a great player! Looking forward playing other games in the tournament.

The main risk was attacking a colonel in an area that it would likely be defended by a higher piece on one of two sides. However, Shoogie mentioned that he had watched a video of me where I had used a very similar setup (as apparently we hadn't played each other before) and so he decided to take the risk likely knowing what was (or wasn't behind). I didn't know such a video existed, so I'll be more careful about such setups in the future.

Let anybody that believe's something is impossible be interrupted by somebody else completing the task, for it is only impossible for those who cannot.

Arranged:

Njphillips12 v 128628bozo Saturday 5th March 0200gmt.



Thanks to njphilips12 for showing sportsmanship and choosing to reschedule. 128628bozo is shown a strike for failure to attend, and is reminded that the tournament operates a three strikes and out policy.

So far in this tournament there have been three no-shows, and on every occasion their opponent has chosen to reschedule rather than to claim victory. This positive behaviour is appreciated by TC :)

Moriarty - you are confusing players by continuing to post with both usernames - Please only post in this topic using Caesar101, thanks.

 

Week 2 Arranged:

 

Caesar101 v 128628bozo Tuesday 8th March 2030GMT

 

 

>Also scheduled is me vs Morias on Monday 20:30 GMT

 

Just so you know, please also note that any arrangements whereby players decide to play early are considered to be made on an informal basis. TC will not be confirming or monitoring any of these game arrangements. These arrangements do become official of course once the game has begun - but there will be no sanctions for cancellations or no-shows that have been arranged informally.

Very sorry Optician. That is why I wanted to play with moriarty account in beginning, so I only have to worry about one account.
Sometimes I forget which account I am on.

Anyway, I understand TC is not much into ring these arrangements, but what if both sides confirm on the forums and one does not show up? There is no strike and it is a big waste of time right?

Response to Caesar101:

The fact that players may want to play games early wasn't really considered. Once early games were requested, there didn't seem to be any good reason to disallow them, but equally imposing sanctions on these arrangements doesn't seem fair either.

Hopefully, no-shows for informal arrangements will be so rare that it will be a non-issue. If a player appears to be consistently taking liberties with informal arrangements then we will reconsider.
