    Is someone manually going to check whether you are from a certain continent? Or is it supposed to be automatic? In that case, it doesn't work. I entered the Asian tournament, and I am most certainly not from Asia 😀
    Another thing, which tournament do players from Russia or Turkey have to enter?

    Turkey is technically in Asia. Russians are mostly in Europe (West of the Urals).

    But Turkey is going to join the EU, and they play European football, so maybe it should be in the Europe group 😉

    Another thing, the rules say that you must have your flag up to enter, there are at least 2 players who do not have flags up that have entered.

    But good one for organising such tournaments! Keep em coming

    Mossgroup appears a little confused as to his location, so he entered them all!

    It seems geography may be an issue for a lot of people, check out Oceania. I have noticed at least one person has suddenly changed nationalility!!!

    Mossgroup just resigned his games. I think he realized his mistake and exercised the best option he could to try to correct it..

    Why not? Israel also participates in the eurovision song contest. If they belong to Europe when they sing, they might as well belong to Africa when they play chess. 🙄

    Look, I have already apologized about it. I'm sorry again, but don't have an orgasm about it. I joined the tourney to get more games in, i did not join the tourney in the intention of making anyone mad.

    Most people wouldn't mind because they are in it for the competition. Not just to win the tourney. Once you report it and (if) I get kicked out then you will have your chance to "win a tourney".

    Sorry my tourney was already in progress and I wanted to play more games. You need to lighten up and shut up. I'm tired of your petty ass bs.

    regards

    As saintnick said mossgroup apologized resigning all his games in the North America tourny,it was a great gesture!
    I obviously don't expect this from you,but you can't say you joined the tourny just to have more games...............your high rating gives you 70% odds to win this tourny,why didn't you join the Europe tourny?maybe because there are many strong players?this is a bad trick man..............

    Thanks a lot Timtim. Nice of you to be so civil and polite. I hope your post gets seen by loads of people so they too will know the nice person called Timtim that I have come to know of late...
