Can the loser get a crappy info line in their /whois? ;)
Remember, NetRep rulings are official. This does not necessarily mean they are correct.

You probably aren't playing Fallen Wizards correctly. This prompted the backlash erratum that I will link to as soon as I notice it is officially posted. :)

Do you think the 10mins will really matter? I would assume most people know how to use gccg at this point. We don't give new players in real life tournaments 10 mins extra.

It can also compensate for poor connection speed, etc.

It will also give the judge more time to investigate stalling complaints. :)

And for those used to gccg this is giving them an advantage. You might be able to push out that extra turn that you wouldn't normally.

Sorry, i won't change my mind. GCCG champs has always been played with 90 mins limit because of the above mentioned reasons and i don't think that should change.

I can picture one or two bizarre circumstances where that advantage will change the course of the tournament, and will promptly notify marcos if they occur. ;)

Hi Guys, my PC is broken so i won't be able to host the tourney this weekend. It will have to be postponed/ cancelled, unless someone else is willing to organize it. I'm sorry.
