OK, I'm a little confused. I didn't catch any bitching in Chris' confusion of the set up. I think that's all it was was a little confusion about how everything is going to happen. As a player in KO1/KO2 and hopefully KO3, I like what I see so far in the set up for KO3 from what I read on TG and it all seems fair for Top12 and wildcard to me. Just think some are just reading it wrong.

But Ken/George, you are two of my favorite guys in the the classic arcade arena, no need to turn into PSP bully mode on some questions being asked. Sometimes simple clarification is all that is needed.

Timeframes for Friday competition really do need to be clarified.

The sections for Saturday and Sunday consistantly use the phrase "Last Quarter . . ." whereas the descriptions for Friday play say things like "there will be a mandatory stop in play . . ." and "scores . . . will be accepted until . . ."

It would be MUCH better if "Last Quarter" was specified (and enforced) throughout the whole competition so that people are not 3/4 of the way to the kill screen when all machines have the plugs pulled or something silly like that.

For example, if play must be halted at 5pm on Friday, should players begin making the decision to not start a new game at around 2pm and just go get some lunch instead? 

I think the players just want the timeframes to be well defined ahead of time, regardless of what they may be.

You all know that Richie and Jordan do not post here so why is anyone asking questions here. It was clear whining about it. If you have real issue or need real clarification, pm me and I will get it sorted out with the only people who can clarify it.

I am so sick of all this crying about the rules and the changes and the this and that not being clear or fair or whatever. We are all lucky to have these guys willing to invest 10s of thousands of dollars for us gamers.

Again. Real issues to my pm box. All else is pointless complaining as no ear that matters will hear it.

Ken, you're a TG ref. You've heard the issues/concerns/confusions. The natural (and kind) thing would be for you to be an intermediary for those that either 1) don't know Richie and Jourdan at all, or 2) do know Richie and Jourdan, but don't have as close of a relationship with him as you do. I know you've said that people can PM you, but realize that people may just be posting so that other people (who aren't you, and who aren't TG refs) may be able to clarify things for them if their confusion really does just end with their own reading of things -a sounding board of sorts. Additionally, in the past, you have offered to get clarification from TG for people without requiring them to PM you about it, so the change in status quo might be unexpected. Also, maybe people post so that people like George or others (who aren't TG refs but also would be able to help get more needed info) might be able to help out due to their close relationships to the KO planners (assuming they find the concerns to be valid, of course).

Sure, I could call Richie (since I have his number), but I don't know him like you do, nor do I have the platform with him that you do. I don't want to come across as wasting his time or seem intrusive. It's a lot easier for a close friend to ask an honest question than it is for a relative stranger.

Lastly, I don't think anyone on DKF is gonna go to the KO3 and not thank Richie/Jourdan/1up for all their hard work putting it on. I barely knew Richie and Jourdan at all last year, and I was thanking them at KO2 a ton. In the end, the fact that people have concerns is not bad -in fact, it is probably in TG's best interest if they are actually clear on the KO3's schedule, as it probably factors into the popularity of the event. If they don't have all the issues ironed out yet, fair enough, people shouldn't pester. But if they are seriously trying to relay a specific schedule and there seems to be confusion, that seems like a legitimate situation to ask for clarification.

Jeff's working on a penis touching meme as we speak...

And Mitch, all good points assuming it wasn't just the bitching to bitch that has been going on lately, starting with the last WCR. Its like Rudy and Brian have poisoned the water and we gotta chlorinate this pool STAT.

Why is it that when Dean posts I don't feel that he's complaining? He's asking for clarification of specific wording. Chris p and Dan, it comes off as complaining. You guys think I'm misunderstanding, but I'm not buying it. That was bs and Ken called you on it, and I have to back him up. I don't know why you guys are defending it.

Here George, how about this: I was a bitch, and I apologize profusely.

Happy?

Are we done here now?

Because everybody else was.

Or do you have more totally unprovoked shit that you'd like to try and stir up?

No make no doubt about it Dean is complaining, and probably more than Chris was.  It could be because you're being biased.  I have no clue.  Heck, I'll even show you where he complains.

Dean said "It would be MUCH better if "Last Quarter" was specified (and enforced) throughout the whole competition so that people are not 3/4 of the way to the kill screen when all machines have the plugs pulled or something silly like that.

Do you see that?  That means.  Hey I'm not happy with the current set of rules, and I think it should be this way, because it would be BETTER.


P.S. whatever, if someone complains they complain, if they don't they don't.  All I know is that complaining about complaining just leads to more complaining! LOL

Except you're trying to get 1 million points, which would mean you have to jump through a whole bunch of hoops to do that.  Well, who knows, maybe you are one of those S & M guys. ;D (P.S. please don't answer that. :P)
