    Hi all,

    How come in this tourney (1401-1600) my opponent rates 1751? Not bitching, just interested.

    Kidms, you are in one of the five games holding up the second round of the "Why is this Knight different from other Knights" tournament. Yes it is about fun, but we like to play, not wait forever for 1% of the players to finish their games. And of course it is always the paying members such as Caesum and Stoker68 who hold up the tourneys. Time and again I see these same names holding up big tournaments. Haven't seen your name before though, so maybe you are one of the good guys.

    I love how many people complain about the time length of this tournament. Chill out! It's a bit of fun! Smile

    These Tournaments are populated by blatant ' sandbaggers ' & I will never play in another one.

    We can all be glad he won't be playing in the next round. Nearly 7 months to complete thefirst round of this tournament! Is this a record or are they all like this?

    Cool, we've been waiting for three weeks for the last three games to finish, and now the guy who participates in two of them took vacation time. Fortunately he's got "only" 14 days vacation time left.

    He's got no chance to advance from his group, so at least he can leave his stamp this way.

    You will be long remembered my brave soldier!

    Ok, played all my games in round 1... Made it to #2 of my group (after a tiebreak with #1), but the chances of moving up to #1 are pretty slim, #1 has still 2 games to finish while i am done. :(

    So... Thanks for some interesting games, guys & gals! :)
