It seems we dont agree on much. Don't worry, you'll get one right soon enough.
Ginko. It works.
I think people don't like the reveal plan right now because it's only been 2 play-in games over the course of 2 days. Next week when there are matchups coming out every few hours, it will intensify.
We are clearly not trying to diminish the bitching of seedings. We've already gotten two days worth of it about carlterp and bigturtle/livewell. And those are play-in games. It'll be a slow leak with plenty to complain about.

I remember the game, I have no idea what that has to do with this.
The "we are right because we said so and you are all wrong" mantra is killing me right now.
Detroit Hustles Harder
I came up with the idea but redwing ended up running 90% of it. It was a good game that people seemed to enjoy. I'm assuming he is talking about the one on the Wake board.
I literally have no clue what he is going for there either.
Don't make me take my ball and leave Detroit, don't you do it.
It wasn't a good game. It was awful and poorly run. You talked about running it for 2 yrs and then dropped it in redwing's lap.
Just when I think the board couldn't get worse, they "fix" the quote function.
Are you lying or just misremembering in typical parlay fashion?
Here is the link to the game thread. It ends on Page 15 and most people seemed to enjoy it: http://www.ogboards.com/forums/showthread.php?5758-DUNE-Mafia-Game-over-CIVS-WIN/page16&highlight=Dune
Even if that were true I fail to see how that would have anything to do with what we are doing for this. Me and JDawg ran this a year and a half ago and it went well.
Seriously, WTF is the play-in game bullshit? Apologies for being too dumb to "get it."
Yeah. Not to mention bigturtle/livewell as a 4 seed play-in. WTF?
Also, add me to the chorus of people who think it's silly to not show the bracket. There's a reason this "discussion" thread is people bitching back and forth without "discussing" the actual contest.
Is this bracket SLT's attempt to try and get some votes for himself in this contest?
There's gonna be a poster who gets Bahn Mi'd because they are going up against one of our WPT overlords
The idea with the play in games came from the fact that it was really hard to narrow the list down to a manageable number. There are deserving people that got left out. We cut the list down as a group and ten counted and we had 68 so we thought that Thanksgiving would probably stop us from having the first round this week so we could have 4 play in games to tide people over until next week. So instead of having 4 boring 16/16 matchups we decided to look at the list for potential matchups with posters with similar resumes. So we came up with..
The twins, 2 semi anonymous annoying niche posters (one Ravens and one Skins), two far right religious retards, and 2 way far left posters.
The thought was that the two 16's would be sort of funny, especially the twins against each other, and that the 2 4's were matchups where we had two similar versions of each other but with 1 that was much much worse. Plus I kind of didn't want livewell going super far because I am 80% sure it is a parody account.
So now we have 64 and I think once the matchups start it will go really well. revealing individual matchups is also 100% the way to go. It prolongs discussion and everyoen doesn't shoot their load with funny comments in the first hour.
SO agree or not that was our rationale. 7erps and JDawg can feel free to add on to that if they want.
With all the lack of transparency, there is obviously going to be massive amounts of corruption in this little shindig. JDawg's gotta be from Chicago.

Everyone complaining is a pussy and I'm telling my dad (Allenbaba) to murder you all
The fact that this even had to be explained means you guys just aren't ready for this and don't deserve it.
We will commune tomorrow as the WPT council to see if we want to continue with the tournament
For those that don't like it: stfu and pretend the thing starts monday. Morans.
Agreed, but a play-in for a 4-seed is still n'tarded.
NYCTerp could be a #1 seed, as could detroitterp or goodman
LOL, idiots. This tournament is over. Winners are the crybaby Parlay and terps99. At least these guys who are trying to organize this tournament are trying to have fun. Why take it so seriously?
Grow up Wilbow. LOL, catching feeling even before the tournament began.

I was on your side!!
Anyways, god bless.
I am trying to encourage you against douches like parlay and terps99.
