Well then it can be earlier

Well then it can be earlier if Ironwolf can manage to do even earlier.. It's just about half hour difference.

So, Ironwolf, can you do at least half hour earlier?

Looks like filipecerk and Fliper09 can easily match up any week day between 7 PM and 9 PM GMT.

Also filipecerk should probably be able to match up with mkzelda and kyre in his time frame or at least next sunday.

Is there some kind of time

Is there some kind of time limit for the Nex 1v1 Qualification stage anyway ? Initially I thought that the whole (Nex)Tourney would be held on one weekend. Now it's definetely not going to end the next 2 months if this continues this way.

I just say this because my free time will cease to exist after the next weekend (in 10 days) and I actually wanted to play nice matches, and not only qualification games with 200 ping and still ending up with 60 : -2

I don't think the nexuiz

I don't think the nexuiz 1-1 was ever planned to be held in a weekend.

What I do suggest is that since GreEnmArine is qualified (in practice if not technically) that others that are in a similar situation consider playing out future matches. We can probably define the next round groups now, perhaps leaving a hole here or there. In this way, we can advance some more matches.

An added option would be that where there is doubt (eg, reptiler and dr_Evil), we can take a chance and assume player X (eg, reptiler) will advance. The deal would be that if ultimately that is not the case, then those that played player X (reptiler) in the advanced rounds would be willing to replay player Y (dr_Evil). If things work out though, then these games are out of the way. Best case, we advance so that as few matches as possible remain unplayed. It may be that once a particular qualifier decision is reached (w/ or w/o a match) then we can jump into the finals or we might even then officially know who would have won the tournament.

People should keep in mind that it is not easy to schedule matches with so many continuing with their affairs in different timezones. Hopefully, we can think-outside-the-box and be flexible.

In fact, if people really don't mind, why doesn't everyone just play everyone and later we sort out which matches counted (we would have to make an effort to define the potential meaning of the match before engaging in it). Yes, it's crazy but it might be fun, and it might keep more people in the game.

GreEnmArine, this way we can mail you your prize when the tournament becomes official.

As a note to libervisco (and anyone else really), it's good to be flexible with scheduling issues of some, but then we should continue to be flexible as necessary so as not to penalize others.

*** EDITED: THE FOLLOWING WAS ADDED AFTER INITIAL POSTING ***

Green, I hope you can play out some more matches before you run out of time and can't afford 30 minutes again, but I think most people coming into the tournament understood that this might just take a while to play out. There is a lot that is being designed and tested and we have a group that is scattered world-wide. I made sacrifices to be here and to play unprepared against you because I wanted to move things along. I don't have that much time to prepare since games are not designed into my schedule (though I am already tweaking my schedule for the future). All of these games and even online play was new to me. I could have used more time to prepare before your match and then you wouldn't have been so bored. My point is that I hope you too will be reasonable.

In the future, hopefully we can get a lot more participants so that we can have different levels/divisions/categories, eg, for groups that would be willing to play game after game during a marathon weekend of high-skilled battling, while another group takes a more relaxed path as their needs dictate.

One more thing, people should not feel this gamefest will be the end. If people want to play competitively, surely someone (besides libervisco) will step up to do some organizing for future play (I'd help, as I am interested in continuing to grow the gamefest). Perhaps we can start a season soon that will lead up to a Spring tournament of some kind. It may even overlap this gamefest to some degree. In any case, this tournament and gamefest are not the last chance to win a prize/title. It's OK to want to win, but it's alright to recognize that you can play some bad matches here and there and accept less than first place.

I think the gamefest may recognize as the Universal Winner whomever racks up the most points across all tournaments. There is still much to be decided and new games to be tried by those that want to be tougher in them next time around.

I also hope this gamefest

I also hope this gamefest won't run too long. :/
Unfortunately, I might have less time this weekend, but I hope to be available during the evenings at least.
The good news is I probably won't be slowing down the finals. ^^'

My apologies to Fliker09 for not being available last time, altough I was logged in on IRC.
I had left my PC online, but had been away for longer then expected.

I sent dr_evil a message

I sent dr_evil a message inviting him for the matches. If he responds soon enough to play with GreEnmArine great, if not we'll probably issue a forfeit.

Good. I hope he shows up.
That we we can at least be sure "the right guy" gets through to the next round, no matter if it's him or me (because I would currently advance if he doesn't show up), depending on how he performs against us three.

But although I would prefer to fight my way through to the next round fair and square, I wouldn't deny to be happy to get to the next stage. ;-)

Looks like you're going to have a bunch of matches this weekend. You and me, for example have to try killing each other in Nexuiz and OpenArena. But relax, I'm, as far as I've seen, the only one you got to face twice. ;-)

Seems you found an opponent already.
Let me know when you're done, best would be coming on IRC, either #gamefest on irc.freenode.net or #gamefest.nexuiz on irc.quakenet.org.

My choice of server is ladder.ga.us.planetnexuiz.com:26001, map is dm_basement.

So, according to the rules we should play basement on your server, and toxic on my server.

dr_Evil sent me an email last Saturday. I replied Sunday and haven't gotten a reply back. I am busy Saturday which is when the match can occur. What I will do if I don't get another proposal is to plan for this upcoming Saturday.

Tomorrow (Saturday and Sunday morning gmt-5) will not work for me this week. Things got a bit complex in multiple ways.

Haven't heard from dr_Evil beyond the initial email. I did say that I had no rush to play our match but did want to play it even if nothing were on the line (this was before I knew the results of the 2 dr_Evil matches played).

Maybe next Saturday I guess.
