    Quite right, although I insist that 25 turns is just not enough as a maximum limit. There are a lot of matches that end just when things are really about to get interesting. Also, this tournament brought the first 4-way draw, which should absolutely not happen when playing with the maximum limit of turns.


    That game could have gone on for 50 turns and still no one would die. If anything I'd blame the map more than the turn limit.

    I think I may sit that one out, though. I understand why Gary did what he did in our match, since I also have some difficulty in handling asynch games. It is very frustrating for me to wait hours or even days for my next move. This is even more so after I fail a spell or when there is a possibility that I will get killed when my opponents play. In those situations I really REALLY want to see what happens next, so I pretty much end up checking for new moves every 10 minutes or so. Honestly it feels a bit like watching a movie 5 minutes at a time, with 1-day intervals between each sitting.


    Snaphot REALLY need to work on a notification system for asyncs. REALLY REALLY REALLY...

  • Congratulations to Efreet for (almost certainly) winning the Qualifying Round with five survivals out of five games, an unprecedented feat in 4Most Masters history!

  • Three games left, two of which are mine. I suspect things may start to get interesting to decide the final two positions, since I do not believe three people can pass SpiteAndMalice...

  • As of now it looks like Trigz is safe. According to the last time I checked my games (about a day ago), Kahangriel was dead but all other wizards are still alive. Players playing to reach the final position can keep that in mind with respect to endgame strategy.
