By popular demand, the romset for 1942 has been changed to the parent set...1942. This is Rev. B. Do not use 1942a.

Ugh, I played a game not realizing that it started at 6 P.M. today.  Usually it's 12:01 A.M.  Oops! FailFish

You see a lot of misdirection leading up to the draft by players in order to better position themselves to be selected by a big market club.  It's a lot of posturing and jostling among the players.  I generally don't put a lot of stock in it as a former GM.

That's a shame, but, it's what turned me off from participating.


At the same time I've been playing MGL and just chose to take a break. This makes sense though Wags, wish it didn't come down to shit like that.

Don't let it turn you off from participating.  It mainly just makes it more difficult on the captains but one thing to keep in mind is no matter what folks say prior to the competition, this a prideful lot, once competition gets going all the pre-draft talk of not spending time on the tourney evaporates like Allen's DK lives counter.

Oh to be sure, I am not playing as much this year.  I just have things that will take away my time this time around.  But that doesn't mean I can't participate this year.  But yeah, I will not be getting 23rd like last year.  Probably more like 35th or so. :)  Still a deal since I was drafted 43rd. :)

The tournament officially starts in 4 1/2 hours! A few reminders before we kick off:

-Please double-check the Games/Rules. Some romsets and rules have shifted since the announcement of the game list.
-Even if you've been playing/practicing already, only games started/scores achieved after the start of the tourney are eligible for submission.
-Make sure you're using WolfMAME 0.183 for MAME submissions. Wolf. MAME. Not regular MAME. And double-check that your INPs are being recorded with the correct settings.
-This tournament is about fun and friendly competition, but don't forget to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

Good luck to all the players and teams (but mostly my team)!

OK, figured it out.  For some reason Internet explorer doesn't work for me.  I had to use Google chrome.

Allen, to be fair, Exed Exes actually did a fantastic job picking teams.  If you minus the captain's scores from the team scores it becomes easily apparent that Exed Exes actually did a fantastic job picking teams.

Fast Fires 1525-283=1242
Mekanix 1507-166=1341
Camel Toe Silhouettes 1416-277=1139
Verizontal 3D 1363-84=1279

When you minus the point total for Captains our team actually comes out second.  So don't blame his picking ability, because you'd be completely wrong.
