    Russ is on vacation.
    The best thing in this cases is to send a message to Russ/Chrismo,I did it before and works quicker than posting in the forum.

    That's what I tried to point in the thread ''eliminating players'',but no one gave a f*** about it...............too much agreed draws!
    However this is really clamorous,two draws after one move.................

    Look at these games between "Faith no more" and "Powersurge"

    Game 559604

    Game 559605

    Is this cheating? My heart says it is ... but is there a rule that you can not draw after the first move? For one .. it isn't much sportsmanship. I am disappointed in Faith no more .. I have played you a couple of times and liked the matches. But I hate this kind of stuff.

    Well that is pathetic if i do say so myself what sort of sense of victory does that give you just to make sure you get into the next round. Perhaps a word of explantion would be good here.... if i am wrong i will be the first to apologise, but as Nicolai says it doesnt look good.

    just had a pm convo with faith no more. i told him he should be ashamed of himself and that it was unsportsmanlike. he found nothing wrong with it and asked me what was wrong with cutting down his gameload. he olny creates more games by doing this.

    Yes, hardly very clever or subtle. If they did collude so to both advance then they should have just let the games auto-timeout. No one would have said boo or even noticed, probably.

    Still, it all comes back to the old adage : "no faith - no principles"
