LOL , You call that venting? We just had a nice little chat and I must say, you were a perfect gentleman and said your piece very eloquently :)
I totally understand all of your frustrations and misconceptions over the rules. Many of them are very vague and need clarification. ( suggestions are most welcomed).
I encourage any of you that need to vent to look me up on icq#183957. I will be happy to hear you out. Many good rule changes start out with dissagreements and the same thing goes for great friendships.
I have the utmost respect for all of you as people and players and enjoy the scarce time that we spend together.
Shawn and Aubster, I applaude and admire both of your attitudes through all of this. You are a wonderful example for all on this ladder.
Improvements will come from all of this. I promise you that the frustrations that you have felt this past week will not be in vain.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. '
: Well folks... seeing an awful lot of posts about this isnt fair, why me etc...
: Well, I got runged too, and despite my displeasure, and disagreement with the whole situation, it only makes sense for all of us to just move on. When I came home from work and saw that I was runged, I was pretty ticked off... I said my piece to Canuck, who let me vent (thanks! hehe), and then I was over it... because no matter how angry I got, it didnt change anything. I was #25, and that was life. I know it wasnt any of the ops fault, and I also know that it wasnt entirely mine either... yet, the fact remains that rules are rules, and that some of us didnt follow them. over 3 days of inactivity is somewhat much, I agree. Indeed sometimes it is difficult to get games, but the precedent has been set. So hopefully, we can collectively as players come to realize that what the ops did, was an attempt to stimulate activity, and despite being penalized, I can appreciate their efforts.
: I apologize to Canuck for venting to her, and I encourage all of you to do the same. Just play the game... thats what we're here for. Everyone has my ICQ, and knows how to formal challenge if need be.
: See you at the top...
