I'm out, I think. Thanks for organizing and playing!
Rinelk, you think you are out? i don't get it. it was crystal clear at subscribing that this will be a longtime engagement. why did you join then?

sorry, but thumbs down!

Hey, at least Kelsey has the decency to tell us he's out. What about the people who dropped out and didn't bother to tell anyone?

In related news, my game with Ferret96 has yet to start ...

oh yes, i could (barely) muster enough self control to better not comment on that kind of spirit.

very appreciated that Kelsey was man enough to tell us.
if only i could understand the reason why he thinks to be out?

but thumbs down is no condemnation at all, just a thumbs down.
i would have preferred to tap that icon in the old forum, but gone :(

i think Kelsey must be (and will be) ready to take it.

I don't understand why he takes so long to answer to the thread and then with such an opaque statement. It is not like Kelsey at all.
I assume he has just run into some real life issues. Keep the heads up man, woman come and go :D

Hardco over skoptic via defcon suicide in round 6.

I had things pretty well in hand, with no Soviet influence in the Americas, but skoptic was in the same position I was in Round 1, not understanding all of the ways to auto-lose the game. He played Grain Sales at defcon 2 and got couped in Zaire for the win.
Yup - thanks for the game, the learning curve continues. Always looks a bit harsh to lose by suicide, but that's what it is!

My invitation with bigjimou was gone yesterday (after 2 weeks). issued a new one. I would be happy about a "I think I am out", or any sign of life at all :D

At what point are we going to give up on matchups where the opponent clearly isn't going to join?

I'd say it's about time to re-pair those matches, but I think it's up to doublebullout.

I created a game with Empt yesterday and this morning got a notification that it was ready...with a different player. I believe if someone declines your invitation the PLaydek system open the game up and allows anyone to respond. I'll try again.
Empt posted before my match with him he is using KingWilson as his login for this.
Yep, that is the ID I invited both times.

I know I shouldn't meddle but could this all be a simple missunderstanding? As in maybe he thought this was an elimination tournament, so he thinks he is out "literally"?

Just me non-native speaker nosing around....
