Congrats to the winners.

again I'm very sorry that i couldn't' show up, I still have yet to find my forza CD. I have no idea where it has gone. I'm very upset at this, as i have been waiting forever to play this game as a tourney game, and I expressed my opinion about this game and how it should be set up hardcore, only not to find my CD. *sobs* If it wasn't for NBA LIVE taking up all my morning i would have went out and bought another copy. can't do that 10mins before the tourney starts

congrats again hope you all had fun

It is bound to. For example, CRU not being able to find the Forza 3 disc and the problems Scrubs had.

Thanks to this tournament, I have 185g on Forza 3. Hadn't played it before tonight and have had about 2 hours gameplay.

Yea, sucks that i wasn't able to join a tourney again. I think i was able to withdraw instead of being eliminated.
I just feel bad for Cru because i feel like I contributed to her being late for the tourney. I was in the room when she was trying to leave but so many people kept on coming in. Hopefully we can participate in the next tourney right?
Should be xbla game right? Should because i still have 800 msp

No 4th place badge? It was advertised at the start that there will be a 4th place badge, so it would only be fair for me to get one. I'd understand making this new rule at the start of the next months tournament, but at the end of this one with me having no idea?

Because 7 people turned out. Seven. A badge for over 50% of the people who enter isn't what it's about. Tbh, I was only going to give out a badge for first for this one. The badges have become a joke.

Due to inconsistant turn outs, there will be a change to the sub tournies. We won't be handing out badges every month for the sake of people turning up. We will be making the official tournaments less frequent, altho there will still be sub tournies each month, badges will only be every 2 or 3 months, if we get a better turnout.

If you feel unjustified, we can delete all 4th placed badges if you'd rather

I've only got one tourney badge, and it was for fourth place, but I wouldn't mind if you took it away. Badges should be given to top three only.

I do have an issue with these tournaments though, although I suppose nothing can really be done about it. I'd personally play in every tournament if I had the game being played, but for the most part I don't (which is really messed up considering I own around 70 games). I could rent the games, but if I'm playing against people who own the game and have had time to get good at it then it's not a fair match so I don't bother.

Also, please exclude games that involve luck. I guess someone could argue than any shooter includes luck (spawns) but I'm talking about games such Uno and the like.

But don't you think if you say at the start of the tournament that there will be badges handed out to the top 4, that the top 4 should get badges? Not the top 3. Just deciding to get rid of the 4th place badge a week after the tourney doesn't seem fair. It would of made sense to announce this at the start of next months tournament and not have it affect January's. Or you should of told creech or something to say if there are less then 10 people there will be no 4th place badge before we did the forza 3 tournament. I just think i should get my 4th place badge then the rule will go into affect at February's tournament. It only seems fair, badges are a big deal to me.

It seems the decision has been made, just get over it. I've never seen so much bitching about an award when you've done nothing that deserves an award.

I always laugh when people say things like this. I don't need to be in a position of power to comment on the situation, and in this situation I feel an award for coming in 4th place out of seven people is unwarranted. Basically, I agree with Minty. And like I said, from the sound of it the decision has been made. You can either continue to complain, which doesn't look good on you, or just get over it- it's not a big deal at all.

I will say one thing in your defense though - a rule change should not come in effect until the next time. But then again, maybe it's "not my say" on that either.

that was one of my points, at least do it next month and not for one that has already taken place.

Well do something to earn a 'proper' one then if they mean that much to you. The awards are meant to be for helping the site, like submitting road maps or guides. If they mean that much to you, try doing those instead of spamming your way to 1000 posts

End of the day, I have chosen to stop doing the 4th place badges. As I said earlier- 2nd and 3rd only just survived this as well. I still think it's a joke that 40% of the people that enter get a badge. It's ridiculous. I warned a while back that something needed to be done, so now I've done it. Could it have waited? Possibly. Have I had a lot of subscribers complaining about it? Yep. Seriouly though, look at any sporting event. Have you ever seen a podium with 4th place on it? Or how about we say in advance if theres below 10 people, no badges?

No offense, but stop moaning about something so trivial. If you had a 1st badge removed, then yeah you may have a point. But 4th? Out of 7? Dakisbac pretty much summed it up entirely and yet you still moaned.

So....what's the official word on the tourneys? Badges every few months or 1st, 2nd and 3rd place every month.

I think it's 1st 2nd 3rd as long as 10+ people participate.

End of the day, I have chosen to stop doing the 4th place badges. As I said earlier- 2nd and 3rd only just survived this as well. I still think it's a joke that 40% of the people that enter get a badge. It's ridiculous. I warned a while back that something needed to be done, so now I've done it. Could it have waited? Possibly. Have I had a lot of subscribers complaining about it? Yep. Seriouly though, look at any sporting event. Have you ever seen a podium with 4th place on it? Or how about we say in advance if theres below 10 people, no badges?

No offense, but stop moaning about something so trivial. If you had a 1st badge removed, then yeah you may have a point. But 4th? Out of 7? Dakisbac pretty much summed it up entirely and yet you still moaned.
Its all about being honest. Everyone went into that tournament expecting the top 4 to get badges. Because thats what they were told and thats how its been. Whats the big deal that there was only 8 people. There would not of been one person that would of complained saying that there was only 8! 50% of the people getting badges is crazy! Thats just ridiculous. If tournament badges are not "proper" then why have them? Because tournaments don't really help the site, other then getting people to subscribe so they can participate in them. But i'm sure that will decrease with rules being implemented like this. Badges are just something to look at, you are making it sound like you and the site are losing out on money or something because your handing out sooo many because of tournaments. I love yuh minty and this site. I got nothing against you. I really don't want there to be any bad blood. I just wish this could of been told to everyone, especially me a little better. It just really sucks it had to happen to me. I do pay the site every month. I know its only 10 dollars, but i think i deserve a little better treatment then this... Now can i have a badge for complaining too much? Something? Anything to fill this void inside me? Alright, ttyl, Closed...

Hmmm, good point. Maybe we should delete them all

Exactly, so why are you moaning like a 4 year old? Seriously, we did the badges and you've bitched non-stop since. If there's a way to get something you're after....it's not that way, trust me.

Well, I can't be arsed to go through this again . So do a major retail game that everyone has every 3 months and we'll do a badge for that, rest of the time it's for bragging rights. We'll see how that goes for a while, and what happens to the awards in general.

So what way should i go to get what i'm after? Don't you think doing this will make even less turn outs for tournaments? I think it will.

I'm guessing there will be an announcement of sorts when the official tournaments start? *cough* official halo 2 tourney in march *cough*

But seriously matt, it's a damn 50x50 pixel graphic for Christ sake. Just drop it and stop badgehunting. It's not your decision and bitching to the admins and then saying it's going to ruin turnouts is not the best way to present your case. Let it go.

Posting the same exact think a half hour later definitely won't get you what you want either.
