    A tournament where you can take moves back if you don't like them, hence the name - Trial Tournament -

    Are you sure that's the right answer?

    I'm refering to the silver star on the tournaments page that has the label 'Trial Tournament' next to it.

    Those tournaments are for nonsubscribers, so they can see what it's like. There hasn't been one in over a year though.

    After a bit of searching I found one:

    Tournament 429

    It's advertised as a tourney for 'future subscribers'. Out of the 48 players only 4 now have stars next to their names. Good idea/bad idea? I think bad; make non-subs pay for the privilege of entering tourneys.

    Hope non subs are reading this as they keep asking for a tournament and as you can see they had one before 4 subscribed lol bad idea i say..Thats why there hasn't been one in a year as russ and chris know that it was a waste of time before.

    You wouldn't see irony if it slaps you in the face

    Oh you were trying to be funny. Something tells me this isn't the first time you failed so spectacularly.

    In this case I believe it was sarcastic that did the slapping.

    I think you meant that this isn't the first time that ElleEffSeee missed the point entirely and tried to look all smart by blaming the provider of sarcasm.

    Well I'm not the sort to talk about myself in the third person so no. You're a [sarcasm]friendly[/sarcasm] chap aren't you? The only contact I've had with you is to give you some advice on a point you raised in a thread concerning why you weren't getting many clan games. How on earth have you come up with this statement, did my advice offend you?
