    A very nice idea, the clan leader tournament, but 3 day TO without timebank?

    I know for a fact, that next month I'll have at least one 5 - 7 day period when I cannot move, so while I'd like to join the tournament, if I do, I'll most likely get timed out at some point. Since having a timebank could only slow down each round in the tournament by the number of timebank days, I don't see any reason to have a clan leader tournament with a short TO period without any timebank.

    I do understand that there are some people who can guarantee that they'll be on RHP without a break for a very long time, and move several times a day, and thus I do understand that there's a market for quickfire tournaments without timebank, but when the target group of a tournament is very variable in their ability to guarantee completely uninterrupted participation for the duration of a tournament, and their preverences, I think a timebank of 7 days minimum (preferably 14) would be in order.

    I agree.
    I was going to enter the tournament myself but with clan/site admin and current gameload (I know its only 26 but a bit high for me), and the fact that it is only 3 day timeout and 0 t/b urged me not to.

    I shouldn't think so! 😠

    Apparently there's no automatic blocking in place, but I have to wonder what the non-clan leaders who have joined think is ment by "CLAN LEADER tournament"?

    And I still think that by having a timebank in it, the tournament would get a more enthusiastic response from clan leaders.

    Namely: koen from 'The Veggies'; kewkumba of 'The Boozelater's'; LittleTitus from: 'The Apostles' (shame, shame), German Clan and 'SHOOOTAH' and Chilvo from 'The Loonies' ( a natural mistake)
    What will those clan leaders think?? Hmmmm?

    And you will simply not believe this but our disgraced and demoted 'friend' mossgroup, has seen fit to yet again pull another charade and enter a clan leaders tourney. Is there no end to this players guile??

    PS EDIT; AND mossgroup is also a member of the sponsors clan -Knights of the Valhalla. Perhaps there is to be a leadership coup and the name changed to 'Knights of the Cheetah's ??'

    The tournament was set up with the parameters suggested by the sponsor. please contact the clan leader and request a change, I'm sure he would agree if you state the reason that you are not entering.

    Great news, thanks! I'm in! 🙂

    Now if we only could get the non-clan leaders out, there'd be more room for people actually eligeable for the tournament. I don't know what's wrong with some people... 😕

    I am lost. I participated in the clan leader clash. I just looked and could not find this one. I will enter if it is open, if not to win at least to kick pyrrho about a little. 😉

    Dear seanbutler, you need to return to Tasmania to support the inbreeding.
