so the etf2l grand finals are set - willy wonka's chocolate factory vs. epsilon esports. man oh man, what an exciting match that'll be! i can't wait to hear admirable cast it as kaidus goes up against the top team in europe, as knoxxx gets another crack at the team he was on for so many seasons! i sure hope nothing catastrophic gets in the way of this match being played on fair and even ground!

3:30 PM - Admirable: yo
3:30 PM - djc: when's the grand finals
3:30 PM - Admirable: Friday
3:30 PM - djc: when do i get to hear that sweet irish voice
3:30 PM - djc: what the fuck
3:30 PM - djc: friday???
3:30 PM - Admirable: yeah admins forcing WWCF to play
3:30 PM - Admirable: without KnOxXx
3:30 PM - Admirable: and whilst kaidus is visiting 2nuts in SWE
3:31 PM - Admirable: so they play Friday without practise or warmup
3:31 PM - Admirable: :D
3:31 PM - Admirable: cookye to scout
3:31 PM - Admirable: Zebbo to pocket

... oh. so there IS some contrived shit happening. well i'm sure the admins have a good and valid reason for forcing WWCF to play without their lineup on a day on which nobody plays tf2, right?? and i bet they're being reasonable and fair about it, too, because that's what level-headed neutrally-aligned people do!

3:31 PM - Admirable: admins threatening to ban them if they gave the forfeit
3:31 PM - Admirable: some ridiculous bullshit
3:32 PM - Admirable: or holding their prize money

well shucks. looks like i'm a solid 0 for 2 here. let's delve deeper!

19:04 - smzii 22" u jelly?: or something
19:04 - smzii 22" u jelly?: lets see

19:37 - broder Zebbosai: Game confirmed for friday btw and we ended up making a full lineup without u so hope to see u cast :D final lineup is me ryb kukkye sam salt 2nuts
20:05 - Admirable: dope :D
20:05 - Admirable: I'll be there
20:05 - Admirable: you gonna have any practise?
20:06 - broder Zebbosai: well a change happened before jason will play instead of ryb
20:06 - broder Zebbosai: cause twoonie had some craptop
20:06 - broder Zebbosai: that jason wanted to use
20:06 - broder Zebbosai: and no no warmup like even if we wanted too we cant get a game at that time

so if you're too lazy to read those chatlogs:
TL;DR: etf2l is forcing a team to play down basically three starters on a Friday and threatening to withhold money or ban them or some other nebulous nonspecific punishment if they opt to forfeit. what the fuck is that shit???? what stupid ass justification can someone possibly make for this?

http://etf2l.org/matches/45745/

The match comments say:

1) Epsilon can't play until Thursday onwards.
2) WWF can't play on Thursday or Sunday.

Saturday and Friday only days left according to match comments - so a weekend default date is only option according to what is posted.

However since it's a Grand Final, and it is a one off match I can't see why an extension couldn't be granted to play any day from the week of 16th-19th. A strange decision indeed, perhaps there is another underlying reason why this can't be done after Sunday.

a very fair and rational analysis and i agree with it all.

so where does the irrationality come in that leads to "if you don't play the grand finals on this date you can't field your team on, we're going to punish you severely"?

our side of the story is:

mike has been a typical first year uni student and hasn't started his first assignment which was due on Wednesday. I ask everyone if we can play monday or tuesday and mike says he can't play because he has to get this work done. gear is late at uni (I think) almost every wednesday, so we can't play then either. every other day until the 20th of december we're free after that

edit: afaik, kaidus isn't free until the 22nd of December after this thursday (or at least what he told me), and I'm not free after the 20th as I go back home for christmas without my pc, so the admins weren't left with much choice other than a date which we could all do

Tis in no way epsis fault. I don't trust they gave 100% to make it happen on other days, but they had their reasons to not play other days same as we had ours. How we ended up here is down to really poor administration and nothing else.

So that some form of game can be played I assume, not much of a justification but that is I am guessing the reasoning behind it.

So the only issue with playing sunday onwards is that kaidus is in sweden? For a whole week? Im probably not seeing the issue but why not just play from 2nuts house then? inb4 "laptop is bad", cmon, I trust 2nuts can hustle a pc from somewhere...

From reading this as far as I can tell no team is fully available until after Christmas, so it isn't like the admins delaying it beyond the normal deadline would make a difference. I can't really see how this is the ETF2L admin's fault or specifically Permzilla's like some people are alluding to, feels like the responsibility is on the players here.

Threatening to ban or punish teams for forfeiting when they can't play is a strange one a I can't quite grasp, but the whole scheduling issue is wholly down to the players, unless there is some other evidence that is withstanding.

according to etf2l playoffs have to be done by December 14th so sunday isnt even a possible option to play

[quote=skeej]So the only issue with playing sunday onwards is that kaidus is in sweden? For a whole week? Im probably not seeing the issue but why not just play from 2nuts house then? inb4 "laptop is bad", cmon, I trust 2nuts can hustle a pc from somewhere...[/quote]
