    So this is so typical of our society today.

    There are plenty of unfairness but right now I want to put a bandaid on this, not fix the problem.

    The tournament generator has several problems of which I want to point out two.
    - Points should be deducted when the tournament starts, not when a player signs up.
    - Tourney officers/creators should go through the ranks and delete players that are AWOL

    Having AWOL players suck, so does getting screwed by the drop in 1 v 1 games. I have had my share (on both sides) so lets just move along, nothing to see, these are not the droids you are looking for.

    good idea, +1... if that's possible with the current tournament engine(?) I assume currently a tournament starts as soon as it's filled up with the required number of participants... that would need to be re-coded so a tournament starts after the operator manually makes it start, which seems a lot of work for the operator? checking a few dozen profiles for activity? might be easier if not logging on for over 24? hours automatically kicks one out of the participants list (if it has teams rounds)

    the problem with drops in 1 vs 1 games is, two players will never agree on whatever sidegame will be fair to both coz there's always the 1st player advantage besides the drop. With larger numbers of players, the drop becomes less influential.
    Also, that's 1 vs 1 and this is 5 vs 6, you can't compare the two. In this case there's a simple solution available.

    The fans of tabletop games or so called board games organize tournaments and it works pretty well. Btw.. My sister is 11 and she's into miniatures and all this "minis world" Does anybody have any experience with it? She looks for opinions about:

    I've started a Guidelines Topic to resolve situations like this one.

    Clarkenfeld started a topic to resolve a tournament round 1 issue so I asked ppl who replied in that topic to share their neutral and objective opinions in this matter too
    (coz so far, of 12 players involved, only 3 players really have a problem with a sidegame; they won't reply to counter arguements and the rest of us seem to not care enough to plee for a proper solution)

    I'm OK with your solutions, but only if it's unanimous; every player in the game has to agree to a sidegame. Otherwise, the game has to continue as-is.

    that does seem fair but...
    to summarize; the awol's team members +1 enemy joined; only 2/3 (out of 6) of the opposing team objected; I debunked their arguments but they didnt respond to that. I don't expect concensus in this kind of situation.
    a minority decides; no sidegame, free pass to the the next round.

    And that's 'the way it is'. You can't FORCE someone to play a side game. If ONE person says no, then no it is and the game continues. Sorry for the team with an awol player, but it happens to everyone once in a while. You just have to accept it and move on.

    1 we could do a side game of 5 vs 5 where one of the opposing team members doesnt participate,
    2 or a 6 vs 6 with a volunteer player on our side instead of our awol.
    3 Or ask the opposing team to eliminate our awol first.
    Oh boy. Solution #1 and #2 would work outside of tournies (but I think I would just go awol and leave the game altogether if it wasn't a tourney).

    #3 would change the game completely, and if the other team would agree on killing your awoler first, all you guys had to do was to try and insulate and protect the missing player. Not good.

    And I don't really like #1 and #2 either, if you win flyhi will advance to the final as well where you have to start the whole shebang all over again.

    I think I would just take this hit. \_(ツ)_/ I agree it sucks. :-/
