I cannot do that at this time. The deadline for round one is the 12th, and some matches are still in progress.

If you want to know who you're playing next, just look at the bracket.
I will not tell you my corner / where threads don't get locked because of mostly no reason /
because I don't want your hostile disease / to spread all over the world.
I prefer that corner to remain hidden /
without your noses.

And game 3 of the match is won by Wintersmith. The replay is posted here. Doc: are there any prizes for the worst kill/loss ratio in a victorious game?

You get to know that the 8 hours you put into the game were not all for naught. :P

Judging by the messages posted in the several threads, I should be playing one of Ultimatum, Thrawn, or F8 Binds in the second round. I showed up at 19:00 GMT on Saturday, and didn't see any of them.

Doc: You should update the bracket. Who am I playing?

Whomever I am playing: PM me to arrange a time.

I think I said several times that I'm not able to make the brackets ahead of time, deadlines being as they are. If people didn't wait until the absolute last minute to finish their matches, it'd be a lot easier.

As for your end of things, the whole Ultimatum/Thrawn/F8 thing (that whole section of the bracket) is an extremely disappointing mess. Lame as it is, you should just advance (I'm guessing you'd win anyway, seeing as you beat Wintermute, who is very good.)

Cackfied,
Don't spread lies, I was there on time.
All times are +2 GMT:
20:49 <Pietro_S> hello
20:50 <Pietro_S> Cackfiend: before I'll play with you, you need to post on forum about your victory against Yogin

You should really post on forum - that you declare victory and why/how did you win.

After you will do that, I don't have any problem to play with you, but don't expect
that I'll play with you in the early morning.

Ech...

Apparently you lack the ability to check what time GMT is. Pietro was perfectly on time, it was you who was 1h too _early_ and then disappeared.

Next time please check this site: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/

Nope, none of them finished the series. Very disappointing, but I don't really blame Thrawn, seeing as he got dragged into it by Ultimatum, who later retired from Wesnoth.

I'm going to try to insert ereksos into that section of the bracket, if Wintersmith agrees to play him during Round Two (he doesn't have to of course, but it'd make things a lot more interesting in that region of the bracket).
