Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

I don't care if you don't play again. No skin off my back.

You were the one who initially proposed to switch the draw so that you unfairly got a bye. Now that the draw is back to the way it should...

Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

The draw didn't really change after play was done though. The only change was me and coffee replacing a bye that shouldn't have even been there anyway.

Abollo/supertom aren't unlucky, bye the rule...

Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

The wording of the TT rule to me sounds like a 1 day round for singles where the player who didn't send had 0 chance of winning so its basically a bye anyway.

To me it wouldn't make any sense to...

Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

1 question though pertaining to the other 2 matches where someone didn't send.

Why are we so quick to switch the draw around so that the higest ranked team gets to play a team where 1 person...

Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

nope.

The point of making that switch is so that the highest ranked gets the "easy match"(the one where 1 person sent)

when the draw was made, your team was playing the 2 seeds(the higest...

Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

No worries, It probably won't matter anyway, being down 1 with the possibility of someone not sending tomorrow against the 2 seeds is basically a guarenteed loss anyway :lol:

I would have...

Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

now that I know what the actual scenario was(as in which teams didn't send) here's what I would have done.

Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

from the TT FAQ thread which I believe we were following for DTT rules as well.

Re: DTT Barcelona/Bucharest

I know they all didn't send but wouldn't it be more fair to have a team where 1 person sent(like me and coffee) instead of an outright...
