Re: Riker’s Winter Cup 2014 North America vs Europe/Asia????

We keep referring to the rikercup.org website, but is this the actual original and official page of the Riker's? As far as I know, rikercup.org was created by and is managed by tw1sted, who I believe is not part of the GU Council. And I am also assuming that the GU Council is the one to officially a...

Re: Riker’s Winter Cup 2014 North America vs Europe/Asia????

The past is the past, I don't suggest anything like erasing this cup from history. But I would diffidently suggest, as kierra mentioned, re-looking at the actual rules of Rikers. You're right, mg, it wasn't a big problem with Roo specifically and it would be a different topic if one of the teams won...

Re: Riker’s Winter Cup 2014 North America vs Europe/Asia????

I totally agree. And its not like there weren't other options. There are and were plenty of true europeans available. The cup is about regional competition not world wide...like the silly cup ;) Europe shouldnt have taken the better player but the player in europe.

Re: New Silly Cup

You're right, constitution, but the problem, not many people know or care about this cup. So if I go ahead and set a date now, which I will, then if people aren't able to attend, they won't sign up in the first place. But the problem is if people don't sign up, then we don't have enough players to m...

Re: New Silly Cup

Ok, I would like to get this going, so here is how the new silly cup would work: This next, new, cup will be called Silly Cup 1 and the past cup referred to as prequel or test cup. This cup will be made of 4 teams and 3 matches. Match 1: Team A vs Team B Match 2: Team C vs Team D Match 3: Winner Mat...

Re: New Silly Cup

We still keep it original, and like you said, we change it to 5 matches to 3 matches. Only one team will be declare Silly Cup Champs. Seems reasonable. My original idea of the 5 matches was to make it more fair, but in the end, it was unnecessary. So, lets try just 3 matches (A vs B, C vs D, Winner...

Re: New Silly Cup

I forgot to mention that the number of players per team could be changed. I think 4 players worked fairly well last event, but we did have some issues with people showing up. If we went with the first idea of combining the two teams, each team would need to be 5 players or smaller. Any feedback woul...

New Silly Cup

So I know everyone is probably stimulated enough by the upcoming Rikers and soon ChesVal, but I would really like to pursue another chance. The cup was my first time organizing any event and I have learned a lot about what needs to be done for success. So, I would appreciate if you guys could help m...

Re: New Tournament Cup

I understand things happen and people can't attend. But when I give 2 weeks advance notice, people should have a rough idea if they will be available or not. Yet, only 2/8 people told me that they wouldn't make it. I doubt that all 6 other people had unexpected last minute plan changes. Even if they...

Re: Any more updates in the pipeline?

I think there are constantly small changes being added for a future update. However, seeing as this is an old game with no true business/development organization, the only people working on it are those who have the skills, time and want to voluntarily make changes. Meaning that the people who have ...

Well apparently not enough people showed up today, so the finals are postponed. I think we should try Saturday, January 4, 2014 at 1:30pm (EST, UTC -5). Honestly, though, I think this cup is kinda ruined. Teams aren't that fair and many people have lost interest. It was the first time I have truly o...

Re: New Tournament Cup

btw i have decided that Snake12534 will be in charge of gathering the teams and sending in subs before the match. He is also entitled to start the match when teams are ready. Once the match is in progress, zar will monitor players and manage subbing.

Re: New Tournament Cup

Again why I suggested something like Monday 8-10pm EST. That would be 5-7pm Pacific. But if none of that works, we could do it on this upcoming Saturday around 2pm EST. Then we just have someone else who isn't in Team C or D to help start the match, monitor lag/afk and control subbing. This person n...

And as I said due to my personal schedule, I will be unavailable Saturday or Sunday day for the rest of December. Which...

I just play my iTunes the entire time. Filled with mostly alternative music and country. Stuff like Mumford and Suns, American Authors, etc. :)

Net nanny is a parent control for browsers, not an antivirus. Disabling could work, but probably not. First off, try rebooting your computer, router and modem.
