10 non-R entrants out of 112, I can kinda understand. I'm curious to hear how many non-WO R entrants there are. Maybe they thought there was a cheater's category like the GLT? But the 7 WO-qual winners who still haven't applied, that I don't get at all.
Posted by robocoyote on 2014-02-12 00:41:40
sucks..... that people cant make it easy. As a WO qual final loser i appreciate what you guys all do and have my fingers crossed for the lottery.
Posted by PurpleChest on 2014-02-12 00:47:39
actually we dont check them all cavetroll, we just draw the lottery and then check for valid entries afterwards, much simpler.

I don't have an excuse I'm just stupid.
Posted by happygrue on 2014-02-12 01:17:44
I checked the tournament page for the date/time for the WO draw, I did not see anything listed so I assumed Wednesday evening bbtime. I have yet to ready my team because I have to hire someone and I wanted to do names and pictures which I was going to do later tonight. Isn't it preferable to apply after being ready or does that not matter?

It's like herding cats! Except cats purr and sit on your lap.
We just make bad smells and rude noises.

If my Stunty team doesn't win a lottery ticket I will be furious! :D
Thanks for all the hard work running these tournies PC.

Seemed easy enough to me. Thanks for all the hard work getting these going mate.

Morons. The lot of them. And all luckers, too. I say give away their spots to teams that will command the most ticket sales!!
Posted by lizvis on 2014-02-12 02:16:56
maybe no one likes dealing with you because you're a snooty jackass who talks down to everyone. just a thought
Posted by keggiemckill on 2014-02-12 02:36:56
Applying to a Tournament correctly would not have anything to do with dealing with PC on a personal basis. He wouldn't have a chance to snoot down at any jackasses unless he needed to go out of his way.
I would like to believe most of those wrong division entries were perhaps miss clicks when entering ones team.
Posted by Nightbird on 2014-02-12 02:45:09
Lizvis made me LOL! Truths.
Posted by PurpleChest on 2014-02-12 02:46:26
To be clear, i do enjoy it or i wouldnt do it, and i do enjoy having well run tourneys here, and believe i am a part of making that be true.
It can just be frustrating at times dealing with constant new players and the language barriers. the two issues that generate the most problems. And also the very few hardcore idiots and perpetual grief givers.
But thats the internet.
Posted by PainState on 2014-02-12 02:49:07
PC this is clearly what happens when you have a major in Skavenblight. The bribes are endless, the rule breaking is insane and well some coaches just thought they could pull a fast one.
Posted by PainState on 2014-02-12 02:51:19
On a side note: the Buccaneers exit was so full of fireworks I did not think it wise to enter the lottery.
Got run out of port with guns blazing.
Tracked for 3 days on the high seas from the anti fluff armada.
Turned boxers into bikini thongs on our drunken rage retire plan.
I felt it was in the best interest of the WO to keep low and out of sight.

"He wouldn't have a chance to snoot down at any jackasses …"
I've always found PC a joy to talk with.
Posted by lizvis on 2014-02-12 03:44:29
ofc you enjoy it PC, you enjoy talking down to people from a position of authority. if you weren't allowed to do it, then you would resign your post or be removed from it. to prove me wrong, all you have to do is never talk down to someone when you're talking to another fumbbler as the head tournament admin,... but we both know that's not going to happen.

aaaaand some people have nothing better in their lives to do than troll people on the internet! even when nothing has been said directly about them! omgstfugwspr0n
isn't freedom of speech annoying?
Posted by keggiemckill on 2014-02-12 04:01:51
Freedom of speech only exists on the Net..Freedom of Speech in my RL can get your teeth knocked out. No corners to hide behind when talking smack in the public.

lizvis so emo
Posted by spinball on 2014-02-12 04:22:00
so sorry, it had been so long since I had qualified for a major I had forgotten how... My Bad... Application done...
Posted by lizvis on 2014-02-12 04:30:23
@coombz: i was just pointing out that his actions initiate the problem, so he really shouldn't complain about things that he causes.
Posted by Cavetroll on 2014-02-12 05:19:48
I think PC and all the tournament staff are doing a fine job.
Posted by Purplegoo on 2014-02-12 07:59:36
I have sympathy from my commissioning days. It's hard graft.
I decided a couple of years was enough of a shift, when you stop enjoying it, hand it on. :)

I blame cyanide, I'm sure it's there fault somehow.

LOL "snooty jackass"! :D
What does that mean in this context? Did he once tell you to "grow up and stop being such a [censored] arse"? :D
Surely you must know that almost all Brits speak like a Shakespearean thesp. Except when auditioning for Guy Ritchie movies or US cop dramas of course.
That's just how it is.
Posted by Verminardo on 2014-02-12 09:58:38
You don't fail. You're doing it about as well as possible, as far as I can see. It happens all the time, everywhere. Anyone who has ever written a business email knows that people do not read properly, ever. People cannot be trusted to follow written instructions correctly, you have to sit in their lap and hold their hand and make them do it to be sure. Blame emails, blame the internet, blame the monkeys! But don't get mad over it. Neither is it any fault on your part, nor malice on theirs. It's just, you know, people.
Posted by BooAhl on 2014-02-12 10:08:28
Also teams should be ready. Some are not...
I didnt see my invite. Does it still work?
Posted by Zed on 2014-02-12 10:08:50
This post gives me high hopes to win that ticket -) Keep up the good job.

Please keep up the good work

Dickvis is just upset he cant talk down to people cause he's already set the bar too low.
And doesn't know any big words.
Posted by Synn on 2014-02-12 15:28:12
God I hope you let the S team in. :)

I think u have the worst coach pic on fumbbl pc.hehe
Posted by lizvis on 2014-02-12 16:52:00
that pic is pretty terrible. it looks like a little girl dressed up like a man.
Posted by Chainsaw on 2014-02-12 17:01:47
Unlike you, lizvis, a man dressed up like a little girl!

I think Purp looks very handsome.....the quintessential English gentleman :)
Posted by maysrill on 2014-02-12 17:26:21
PC's pic is the professional headshot of an actor. Mine's just a picture of a dork standing on a bridge over a canyon (none of which you can tell from context) in poor light.
I'd have applied Firehurler to the lottery just for form's sake, but I've gotten them lodged firmly in an Elite SMACK. They've taken it in the teeth a bit in this SMACK, too, so despite being in fair shape to win it, I wouldn't put up much fight in a major final.

any updates on the numbers?
Posted by keggiemckill on 2014-02-12 22:38:54
I thought the message stated that teams who have played 3 games or less after their knockout could apply? There is also another side lottery for the qualifier final losers to get in. If I am not wrong.
Hey, I want to also say that you guys should leave dickvis/ lizface, ( I always get those 2 mixed up,) alone. All he is saying is that he is being made to feel inadequate by PC. He is , ahem, a good standup guy who should always be given a chance to voice his opinion, no matter how simple he sounds. He clearly just wants to set the record straight that PC makes him feel lesser than what he ought to feel like. It's not like Lizvis treats everyone as an equal.
Posted by lizvis on 2014-02-13 18:08:27
that's a strawman argument, but i know you're too stupid to know what a strawman argument is, so go google it and then spend three hours trying to figure it out.
as usual keggie, your opinions are stupid and full of fail. the best thing about being you is you're so stupid that you'll never know how stupid you really are.
Posted by keggiemckill on 2014-02-14 09:34:18
All that, after I defended you? I guess Ill never know what it takes to win you over.
You take being uneducated as being stupid. Yes, the truth is out I never attended Harvard. I have studied other things in differing areas than you obviously \ have. Nope, I don't know what a strawman argument is, but I can guess what you mean by it. Strawmen are essentially scare crows. Scare crows are false people that are put in areas to scare off crows, and other animals. So I am guessing a strawman argument is a fake argument, that is intended to show merit. I imagine it causes misdirection of what a person is actually intending to make a point about. Close enough? It doesnt matter in the long or short of it. You know a word that I do not. Wow, that is sooo intelligent of you. Did you invent the phrase? No? Then who really cares about debating intelligence on a BLOOD BOWL site?
Lizvis you are right scumball that everyone can see right through. You dont like me, because I tell you how scumbally you are to other people. Insinuating PC is pompous is the pot calling the Kettle black. You know what that phrase means dont you? Or are you too stupid to realize what an arrogant idiot you actually are? I do get joy in tormenting you, because you are used to being the one tormenting the mass. Bullying a Bully, and you are a bully Lizvis, is the way to describe our relationship. Honestly, what makes you feel better Lizvis, tormenting souls on here or playing an actual Blood Bowl game? I don't think its the latter. I think you only play games on here so you can yap and demoralize your opponents. Iv'e seen you play games, and I do admit on 9/10 days you are better than I. So what? In the end you are always going to be a scumbag. Talking down to people is your thing, it is your mantra. Dont get mad when people either feed you your own medicine, or point out the truth. That makes you look just as stupid, as you try to paint me out as being. Education does not make you smart, but being naive to your own bad behaviour does show your actual stupidity. Why don't you wiki the Dunning Krueger effect? Do you know what that is? You are exactly the type of person it describes who gets ahead of others. Loud, confident, Emo's.
Posted by lizvis on 2014-02-17 06:29:23
no herppie.... it's nothing but false that i don't like you. i like you because you're stupidity is entertaining... i treat you the way i treat you because you're an idiot who thinks he's a lot smarter than he really is.
Posted by keggiemckill on 2014-02-17 21:10:17
There you go again calling the kettle black, pot. You are such a geek.
