    The guy with 4 games left has just 6 days vacation left now, perhaps the round will finish by the end of the month!

    Haha!!! Well, I just happened to look at the games that are left and wanted to see how much vacation time they had left and you can see the last time they were online and it tends to be everyday.

    And it sucks when you notice that some people that go on vacation and hold up the tournament are still logging in almost everyday, just choosing not to make their moves.

    Vacation? Are you kidding me? This meant to be a quick knockout tournament?

    If I may put in my two cents,  I detest the fact that one can take vacation time in a "quick knockout" tournemant as I feel that contradicts the point of said tourny.  However when we all signed up for this we knew full well that the ability to take vacation time was an option for players.  Haveing that knowledge we have no right to gripe when a player chooses to exercize said option.  I would encourage that perhaps we start a petition saying that vacation time be down away with in future "Quick knockout" Tournys

    This 'rapid' and 'quick' tournament has been waiting so long for one guy who's still on vacation. 7 games remaining, 6 of them are with one player who's got 2 months left on vacation and is rated 1449, well over the 1000-1200 thing anyway. Surely the admins can just withdraw them and let the rest get on with a RAPID tournament! This is taking way too long now

    Waiting around for people with months of vacation left and no chance of progressing anyway is getting really quite frustrating now. Yell

    I don't understand why people join tournaments if they're just gonna let the time run down and go on vacation. It's no fun to be in a tournament that coined the named "Quick Knockouts" when after every move they let the time go down to under an hour and go on vacation. I understand it's not a live tournament but It's still very frustrating.

    Thanks, Dawgpound.  You too!

    I'm finding that playing this many games at once is a bigger challenge. I've made a couple REALLY stupid moves that I've kicked myself for as soon as I clicked the Submit button.
