And congrats to you, too.

I'm thinking it will be a good series You never know with this game, it can go either way. I'll be watching for it tomorrow.

Good luck to you.

botr tournament update:

still 6 first round games to be played.. if you havent started your first round game.. I will be handing out forfeits when I wake up in the morning..

for round 2.. only the home teams can initiate until 1pm est tomorrow.. unless the home team asks for the away team to initiate, for stadium advantage.

Cornpickers has started first 2 games and I haven't even started the first game. And I'm supposed to start first and third* game, right?

If yes, he broke the rule.

I dunno. I was busy almost all day, I wanted to do it after I'm done with "busy" day.

Or he's not clear of the rules...worst case scenario is that only his first game counts...a win for you! Congrats.

If he read on the top of page, it's clearly there.

But if he started the first game and it should be on Game 2 not Game 1, the score 1-0 Cornpickers shouldn't be counted.

Actually, according to the Playoff page, he starts two games and you start one. But he should have waited to start the third game until you started the second.

In case you missed it, the player with the lower seeding initiates 2 games so that if a player has a stadium, they have it to their advantage.

Cheers

i think the general idea is that if your the team that starts 2 games..

if you win the first game.. wait for the other person to initiate.. so they get to start at least one game..

if you lose the first game.. go ahead and play the third game.. because either the person will advance without having to deal with initiating a game, or another game will be necessary..

Is this a written rule or unwritten? I'm in agreeance with it but a clarification would be cool.

actually.. its not really even an unwritten rule.. just an opinion on how I think would work best..

what is at the top of the playoff page is:

Do not play game 3 unless it is needed

broadway- these are at the top of the playoff schedule page:

Quick rules/guidelines:
- Away teams initiate the games
- Do not play game 3 unless it is needed
- Submit scores using team names and not team IDs
- Coordinate your games with your opponent, if possible
- Start Time: 9AM PST/Noon EST


I already initiated my game (60415; Thunderchickens win 5-3). You can initiate your first game any time after 9am today, and the third game if needed.

Sorry McHawkson if I confused you. I'm the away team so I initiated game 1 which you won. Using general DVDtalk logic, I went on and initiated game 3 which I won. It seems as though the score was mistakenly recorded under the game 2 slot. Get it?

But if you read the rule on the top of the Playoff page:
- Do not play game 3 unless it is needed
Then you should have wait till after game 2 is over.

Hey WhoGirl, hope you're feeling better. I'm home, trained and ready to go. Initiate game 1 whenever you're ready.

I haven't train my players, yet. I need to replace the network card, because it kept failed or died till I restart the computer.

The point is I need time, he should've give me time to train my own players, what if I lost the Game 2 and I already lost to him in Game 3. I could have a chance to beat him in Game 3. Come on.

I guess if we're going strictly by the letter I should have. But like I said (and like it has been discussed in this thread), I was just going by the unwritten DVDtalk rule that has been applied many times over in the past seasons. Also, I wasn't sure if I would have a chance to get to my computer again until night if even then. I don't think I did anything wrong and am a bit confused by your problem with what I did.

Hey, that's why they have the 9 am start time. I actually didn't train my players since the night before when I played the two games.
