Yea, I agrees that no shows are a bitch.... I didn't get into any tourney this month because half these losers sign up then dont even show... That, in turn, takes a spot away from someone like me that shows up for every match....

We might need some kind of policy to help get around this more haha....

We do out best to weed them out, but what you should do is put your name on the thread as a reserve entrant if the sign up is full. That way if anyone is taken out, or if there is a no show in the first round, and the admin knows you will get your game in fast, you can be added into the tourney. We would much rather have matches played than not.

Yea, I tried to contact Bones and fill one of the slots, but I think that was too late....

I will start doing that if I cant get in.... I wasn't criticizing any of the admins or anything.... Just the slackers who sign up then never show... wanted to make that clear Smile

but good idea... I'll do that next time... Good luck to the rest who show up in the Tourney....

and Fred... I'll play ya anytime ya want Wink.... Just IM me at Nesman90 or email me at the same thing @aol.com

Yep its the most frustrating thing ever, i like to play my matches real quick and if youve got a noob who aint responding, youve got to wait until the end of the round so they can get DQ Mad

I must admit though, sam has done a good job in the euro tourney theres no where near as many no-shows as there were before, but of course youre bound to get the odd loser no show who spoils it for the rest who could play.

Just keep at it Demonchild Wink

Does anyone know when May signups start? I'm going to do it quick enough this time hopefully....

I do see the Euro tourney being good about that.... It's tough to monitor who exactly will show up and who dont.... I saw Bones said he has some ideas to try, so it may become improved over time...

I have some myself... Some verification process like you must post on the board to confirm your identity or something ya know....

I'm sure in the future it will get improved as all things do.... Good luck to [SIN]Wrath in the INT finals.... His first tourney... Great job man Smile
