[This post is released as personal opinion and should be considered as that, personal and not of others.]
Forgive me if I come from nowhere, I just wanted to say my opinion. I actually don't come from nowhere, I constantly look at the new uploadings and events (with the free time that I can have due to studies) here and of course I've given a eye on this tournament too.
Let me specify since the beginning and please remember that, I didn't take trace of every detail, every development, any any anything. I gave a superficial look, that's because as I said before, my free time is very short. But I guess I've looked enough to express my opinion.
If you make too many changes and place too many variable factors (like new games that can be inserted at any time)... I don't say what's good or not, but indeed it's chaotic. That's also one of the reasons why I didn't analize the tournament in every detail, seems chaotic. Again, I'm not saying GOOD BAD COULD BE BETTER no no no, I just want to underline that it gives a sense of confusion and could be a reason for some players to not join the event or abandoning it.
I think I am a vivid example... I didn't have always that hyper passion since my first times here to join tournaments, because I was too obsessed with the idea of losing. Then time after time I changed point of view and found tournaments more interesting. The last months I was waiting impatiently for a new tournament to come, then it arrived... as you see I didn't join, guess why. No matter how much free time I could have, I always have a bit; I didn't like it enough. As some wise men also told me and experience does too, rules for everything should be enough simple and stable since the beginning, to attract particpants and please them. We're humans so doing a change or two it's OK if we think they're needed... but please let's not refer in which are the possibilites given by MARP rules to you as a tournament coordinator, let's also speak in terms of "common sense". My "common sense" brings me here to say it seems chaotic.
(Examples? Okay, example of confusion. Post #2 by the coordinator says:
In the top he is saulonpb but the winner of tournament would be MarcoMarocco because he has scored in 8/10 games
Does it cost too much to you to divide the ranking in two parts... "qualified" and "not qualified", so it's easier to understand?)
And I waited before saying it. It's too much easy to criticize at the beginning when nothing has happened yet. The tournament is almost at its end, I've seen enough and now I can tell mine.
Well... told. I don't have so much else to say. If needed I'll take a deep look to every every post made about this T12.
You're not the only one having problems in life dude. Using them as a sort of defence... no, I don't agree with this. And retiring just because you can't accept critiques is for cowards.empardopo wrote:Right now I have many problems in my life and I keep the tournament for the other people but thanks to you, I know this is probably my first and last tournament as an organizer.

You had got 3,5 months to complain about the extra rule, before the starting, but you complain when the tournament has 1 month. Sorry but it is impossible to understand...
Ooooh nice. So I can't say mine because I'm not playing and even if I was playing I couldn't because the tournament is ending... how wise. YOU all complain always so much that there is poor participation in the forum but then when people say something is a tragedy (there look, I have submitted only 31 message in my lifetime! GUESS WHY). You don't really get the point that exchanges of opinion and critiques should be CONSTRUCTIVE to avoid to make the same mistakes again? Or should we accept everything that comes like it comes "because yes"? We can't even talk now? It's crazy. A forum is all about talking!ballas wrote:There should be a rule to state that people have to be part of the tournament to be able to complain...
If it's that natural (and yes it is) that a tournament can't please everyone, then why do you have to ask people to stop "moaning" (I scourge exageration) since it happens every time? Let them speak, what bad thing did they do to you?BeeJay wrote:The thing with tournaments is that you're never going to please all the people with the game selection. Just get over yourself and play the games if you want to compete. If you don't, then don't, but either way people stop moaning about the selection.
Anyhow I quoted this as additional underlining of my concept. My opinion is built on the "organization", not on the games chosen. I wanted to mark this again before someone comes here to tell me to stop "moaning" as well.
Talking about being constructive, this is not, sorry. I usually agree with many things you say but the way you say them counts a lot, don't you see that people here take each other very seriously? There's not yet that smell of irony in the air. Well, at least not here, not now.Kale wrote:Just make a bunch of fakes to wherever you're in first place.
Final additional strings:
-Sorry if I wrote so much for you and English isn't your main language but the forum IS in English and it is required that you know it enough. Even more, if you are obliged to write.
-I'm ready to reply to all of you who won't agree with me and there will be a lot of sure! I'm not a ghost, I won't disappear all of a sudden.
