Of course you can play, no need to commit or something else, just post your pick for day 1, the tournaments always starts on Monday

I'm quoting this from the managers thread, so maybe we could have more opinions on the subject.
Anyway I think it unlikely to change midseason, but we should definitely discuss it for 2011, so let it be in this thread as a reminder.

I don't see any reason why the games hasn't started today.
I suggest for future GS not to skip that day.
My opinion - the other reason we start on Mondays is, beside the fact that there are usually only a couple of matches scheduled for Sunday, players tend to forget to post picks during weekend. To me it has happened a bunch of times that I'm late for Sunday start tournaments for other games, so that's why I'd vote yes to always Monday start.

^ No pick is treated the same way as losing pick, so the answer is yes.

@natashha for Nice it says Losing pick on Day 6 - 150 points. Do players who don't have a pick for Day 6 also get 150 points?

Maybe there are one or two weeks in a season where there's more volunteers, but in my opinion, it should be either every single tournament in the calendar or exactly one every week, and not to let it depend on the week.

I hope the players would leave their thoughts on the subject. If we had multiple tournaments in a week, and a rule that you can play only one of them, it would reduce the number of players in a tournament (that is the work for the person who runs it) and maybe more players would sign up to manage.


edit: I put in bold the answer to your question, TBellucci.
I think exactly like you. Either we play all tournaments every week or just one every week. And management in Suicide is not anything as hard as PAW or TT..
