Another factor... Now that Hoyle is back up, FSeuchre is getting back into the 10 pm t's.
Personally, and since today's my birthday it's all about me ~grin~, I'd like to have a t here about 8 pm. I'm on 4 ladders/leagues, and I try to play some on each every day, but it just doesn't work out when there's a 9:30 on one and 2 have 10ers.
: I like your 10 pm tourneys - I can't always make it but I do try. I would suggest keeping it at 1 vs 1 instead of 2 vs 2 until you build up a good crowd (then 4 is all that is needed to make a valid tourney as opposed to 8). Maybe also try running ads during the day to remind people that there will be one happening at night (not everyone checks the tourney schedule regularly). The only other suggestions I have are 1) let me win more often and 2) don't let Brf invite Nibby to partner him in finals.
: Thanks for all your hard work Ben - I know how hard it is but patience and persistence will win out.
: p.s. I don't know if the Hockey playoffs might be part of the reason that the numbers are down this week.
: : I am happy to keep running tourneys for everyone for your enjoyment, but it seems as of late that it is a struggle just to get enough players to make the tourneys go. Those dont make very good tourneys. I have been trying to have my tourney regularly at 10 pm est to draw a regular crowd but that doesnt seem to work either. I want to know from the players if you still want these tourneys or what I need to do different to get a higher participation. Any feedback is greatly appreciated
