    After removal of The PO and Fernando in the final round of the RHEA tournament (tournament # 200) three players remained: Peter9 with 10 points, Dynamic09 with 7 points and Alok Singhal without points. Then, after two or three days of the removal Dynamic09 won against The PO (T/0) who had been already eliminated from the tournament, e.g. he won a not existing player.

    How is this possible? I do not know. I have asked Russ but he remains silent. May be somebody here knows the answer.

    I have decided not to take part in the second final round of the RHEA tournament in believe that I have already won it. By the way I have asked Russ how many final rounds are in tournaments. No answer.

    This should be resolved so that players claiming wins against banned players get no points. You should win the tournament.

    Most likely because the game cannot be deleted.. so the timebank continues to tick.. 2 days after the timebank is empty, there is an auto timeout..

    You can't take timeout wins vs banned players. I'm playing Exy right now and his time's been out for days but it says "please wait" next to the game. Their games should be resigned all at once at some point.

    And there can be unlimited final rounds as long as the score is tied after each. Just keeps going until someone wins.

    There is another reason for this situation and Peter9 is well aware of it as are the game mods.

    you can't click the skull for the time out, but tournament games auto time out after 2 days of an empty timebank

    EDIT: the proof that still happens is that a banned player won a game by timeout AFTER he was banned.. but.. sorry.. I can't remember what game, it was one of ThePO against fernando J P Vasquez

    I think the "please wait" issue may be while an investigation in to the player is carried out, before they are actually banned.

    Correct me if I am wrong, though.

    You are wrong.

    The please wait just shows that they have been banned...simple as.

    Freddie 2004 says: “…players claiming wins against banned players get no points.”
    Galaxy Shield says: “You can’t take timeout vs banned players.”
    I am of the same opinion.

    But it happened in the RHEA tournament (#200, game id 985169). And what one is supposed to do in this case?

    I wrote to Russ two times. No answer. What also? To address OPEC, UN..?

    I'm pretty sure ThePO and Fernando were the same person, that's why they both got banned for having multiple accounts. And ThePO won both the games because he was the last one to move, and like you said, the games timeout after 2 days if the timebank runs out.

    Right.. and.. I think the others are missing my point.. that is most likely what happened with these other games..

    Peter..

    You can't take timeouts vs banned players.. that is correct.. but., the system after 2 days of an empty timebank with AUTOMATICALLY do the timeout.. I am sure that that is what has happened here..

    peter - you do find a small problem in russ' programming ... but you do not pose a clear solution.

    sure dynamic gained more points from po and fernandez than you did - but this is only a small secondary problem ... russ has fixed the biggest problems first and will hopefully fix these type of flow on problems eventually.

    let's decide how russ could best do this ... i suggest: leave it as it is ... if we backdate rounds it will never end ...

    consider ... Tournament 40 ... should spassky be awarded the tournament ... or should skeeter, billdny and baca get a chance against spassky first ... hang on : spassky is not playing NOW ???? i think best is to just leave it as it is.
