    Are we still gonna go with 8-man tournaments? The whole last tournament was almost just disqualifications, and the entire right side didn't play at all. Do we have enough players for an 8-man tournament? I think we would have 5 that would play, but not sure if we would have more than that

    Yeah, the 8's are on hold again for a while. Expect a new 4 soon.

    Scheduling would probably be needed for some to finish their game. For example, the two with a game could set a time to meet in chat and finish it then. All the games I have finished have started in chat or by PM.

    The problem is typically these people sign up and don't show up again until after the tournament is over, it wouldn't even be possible to try to make a time as they'll be DQ'd before they even read it. :/

    And that's the problem with 8-man tournaments. We don't have enough players that actually play their games. In the last tournament, only 2 matches were finished without disqualifications (although mine was caused by our tie :p).
    Half of the players that signed up were people that usually never plays their matches, even if they sign up. And as Aaddron said, they probably won't show up until they are already disqualified.
    Honestly, I do like 8-man tournaments more, although if 4 players aren't even playing, it's the same as 4-man tournaments. A shame that there aren't more active players

    Define active players. Do you mean play every day?

    That would be a plus, but I'd settle just for being online a couple hours a day a few days a week. Enough that it could be reasonably assumed they had time to even be online and reasonably meet with their opponent, considering we have people who will sign up and not come back until after that tournament is long gone. I mean, if someone only shows up once while their match is live they'd have to get pretty lucky to meet their opponent, particularly if said opponent has a similar visiting frequency. Contrast that against the fact that two active players could finish a match without ever actually meeting simply due to availability and the problem becomes extremely evident.

    A single round game requires (effectively) 10 moves, 9 to complete the game and for the person who plays last to leave the match, and one kind-of move for the other player to leave the match.

    Finishing the noob tournament would help since 3 of us are locked into it!

    Still waiting for Webber to join our match though.

    Webber ended up being disqualified, as expected. Facing Pure in the finals next
