i guess at this point nobody really gives a fuck anymore but it would have been nice if people had just played the game like they signed up to do. this match overall was unimportant for two of the top teams that will face each other again in the finals so why not just play the game for fun? nobody likes ffws.

tbh this just seems like a shitty admin ruling and it feels like there is a retarded ruling in every single tournament. thug life will be added to aphelion's roster once the playoff stage of the cup has started and only then? is that even true? why not just add him immediately? makes no sense. why let a team claim a ffw for their opponents bringing a ringer instead of a 4th AFTER they start the match and complete an entire map? why ready up in the first place if you disallow the other team to use a ringer? both teams obviously want to win and both parties obviously think so shit of acer. one team would not play with him on ~180 ping and a player on the other team went for a ffw because he did not play lmao holy shit.

correct me if i'm wrong but besides being kinda shitty, aphelion didn't break any rules. they are allowed to use a a single ringer for whatever reason they wish, and their opponents can deny said ringer. but all 4 members of pub* readied up and played the game. that doesn't seem like denying the use of ringers to me.

Team Pubstar was disputing the ringer even before the match started. However Danne's team was being uncooperative and if anything provoking. Team Pubstar messaged Fig however he was AFK up until map 1 finished and he replied with his ruling. Whether you like it or not, there are rules put in place to help prevent anarchy and keep structure in an old ass meme game like this. If you don't like the rules, feel free to start your own tournament with only the "No Cheating" clause and see how many people you'll get to stream those matches. I sure as hell won't when both teams are free to spew shit at each other without fear of retribution.

Rules are rules. It's time to grow up, this isn't middle school.

Never thought in my life that I'd give Xbye a 'thank you' on this forum.

But, his head's in the right place on this one.

Can't you just settle this how we settle all our recent disputes.

Quote from: danne
Begged you? I requested that you answer whether you'd play so I can fill out the roster if you're going with someone else. Whether you played with us or not wasn't as important as you seem to think. Don't flatter yourself, You were the reason you team lost last tournament, So i wouldn't get too ahead of yourself with the delusions of self worth.

Ah Dusty the moral titan that L4D2 needs, Thank god you're here to ensure everything is in it's right place.
This statement got me triggered pissed mad butthurt fucking.

Reason why HCP lost BOT was supra's and Bravo's terrible (comparably) tanks and questionable surviviors decisions. While purple and Dusty were carrying pretty flipping hard. Well, at least Dusty who was shotting down like everything up until this two previously mentioned guys fuck his team over again like when Bravo forgot to eat pills having HP for 2 punches and got insta incapped resulting in a wipe.

When added to each other this mistakes mattered a lot against such monster team like Serenity was.

Rules are rules. It's time to grow up, this isn't middle school.

the ringer clause in the rules is very clear. both teams must agree to use ringers, but dusty decided to ready up and play despite disagreeing with aphelion's ringer. who cares if fig is AFK? rules are rules, right? they could have screenshotted proof that danne's team was uncooperative and unwilling to play without their ringer and left the game. instead they began to play out the match and for what reason exactly...? in case fig allowed aphelion to use a ringer when pub* did not agree? does dusty think fig is such an incompetent retard that he wouldn't stick to his own rules? lol seems like it. apparently pub* will have to face off against the same four players later on in the tournament so really what was accomplished here? they will need to -actually- beat aphelion then in a match instead of receiving a ffw.

what's the point in even having written rules when you need to wait for fig's say on a matter? i don't disagree with dusty denying the use of a ringer but to start playing the game with said ringer just to call gg and leave the game is pretty fucking stupid imo. if you disagree with danne using a sub, then don't agree with him using a sub, right? i wanted soul's team to win but NotLikeThis

Contray to popular belief, Fig is not a lawyer and there are loopholes in the written rules and certain vagueness.

When has anyone followed through with the rules without putting up some argument and then requiring a higher authority (Fig) to step in and say, "Fuck you. Follow the rules." ? Just because something is written plain as day doesn't mean people aren't going to argue it. I've already had someone try and convince me to stream their game if they played it on a Hyper-V server even though they clearly read me stating I won't ever stream on those servers.

The main thing to focus on here is not that it's scumbag that a team forced a FFW on map 2, but the fact that we couldn't get a decision soon enough that they didn't have to even play map 1 in the first place or for Aphelion to be forced to use their actual roster. I'm not blaming this on Fig, but rather the fact that we only have one decision maker in this tournament right now. Even previous tournaments had at least two decision makers readily available, poor Fig is completely alone here with me playing sidelines while streaming asking people not to stand on Kiosks.

TO RECAP: So the issues are the following: Players not acknowledging the clear as day rules and requiring a higher authority to step in and hold their hands because they can't stop being childish, and the glaring lack of higher authority readily available.

It's fine if people require an admin every now and then to settle a decision... but it almost seems like they're needed for every other match because people fail to follow the written rules.
