Round 1 Deadlines Issue + New Player + Slow Opponent = Sad me.

0 votes
Hello, this was my first monthly tournament and I was relying on my (experienced) opponent's guidance as to the pace of play / deadlines. I could not find the deadlines on the web site ... kept looking at countdown timer and "Monthly" page. He/she admitted to playing slowly but said we had plenty of time to finish... I have screenshots of our chats. I was/am winning both games and when we discovered the deadline had passed he/she encouraged me to declare both games forfeit due to his/her slow play, and to write you. If there is any way I can be reinstated I would appreciate it, but I do understand you have to have some limits. Worth a shot. BTW my opponent was very honorable and sportsmanlike throughout all this -- just also unaware of the deadlines.

I have moved you into Round 2. The Countdown Timer is not functioning but there is a posting on the Home Page. Round 2 deadline is Tuesday, November 11 at 11:00PST. All Rounds in the Monthly are 3 days. First Round is usually 4 days but due to the computer issues this Month and the delay in starting the tournament, I only allowed three days.

Good luck in Round 2.

Thank you!  My Round 2 opponent and I have started and are playing aggressively so as to meet the R2 deadline.  Much appreciated.
