Is that for like right now? 1-2 pm est?

Looked like it was getting much better the last few days, only saw one trial yesterday and we had a consistent 8 straight hours of solidly booked tournaments.

OMFG
Just finished looking at the schedule and it is absolutely terrible.
When it's not a trial tourn it is raining. Only ONE tournament the ENTIRE night is not rain! And don't forget the 2 1/2 hour gap at 8:30-11:10 EST.
Good times
Oh, and our best friend Toro is in 1/2 of the tournaments!

If we get one day a week like we had yesterday I'd be content with crappy schedules the other six days.

Ok maybe not but the point was yesterday was an absolutely awesome schedule.

at this point, at least they are trying ( at least it looks that way).

We knew how bad it was before and our complaint was we wanted all the courses, it seems to have gone through so far. Yeah it might not be as nice as Minna, but hopefully we will get there.

Agreed - Took them about a week and a half to take action on the first batch of Grief forms. Perhaps it's time for a 2nd batch?

Yesterday was really that good? Didn't look like it to me. Still seemed like we were waiting 25-45 minutes in-between a lot of the tournaments. At the least, 20 minutes. I just can't stand waiting that long. For me a "solid" 6 hours would be consistently wating in the 15-20 minute period. Because, let's say that, on average, we waited 20 minutes between each tourn (which I believe was true for yesterday). That is 2 whole hours of waiting in that 6 hour span. That means you are only playing 2/3 of the time you are online.

Actually, now that I think about it I am positive yesterday had HUGE breaks in it. I remember playing one and waiting an hour for the other.

8 straight hours of solidly booked tournaments/=/good schedule
Just because they were booked solid does not mean the schedule was.
I wouldn't care if there were only 10-15 people in each tourn just as long as I only had to wait a MAX, and I mean MAX, of 20 minutes between tourns.

The longest difference between tournaments times was 40 minutes and 30 minutes, but that was because we skipped on turn for a better one 30 minutes later and missed the one after that. We could've definitely played a little more.

Playing in a tournament 2/3 of the time you're online is a heck of a lot better than what we're used to though. I mean...sometimes we'd get a good schedule and jump into a few tournaments in a row, but not very often and it was usually followed up by 3 hours with nothing.

And I don't know about you but time spent waiting, 20 minutes is perfect for a 9h game. I mean if you're sitting the lobby the whole time that'd suck but it's not our only option.

Dude how high were you? O_o

Ask scoots, fux, or anyone played throughout the day, we were playing tournaments one after the other without huge breaks in between.

Seriously you must have come in at the wrong time. I mean I'm not talking 2 in the AM, I'm talking like 5-midnightish (and there was a tournament at 1 that we just didn't play because we had actually had enough). I only saw you in that Alex/Jurassic tournament so I'm not sure which huge breaks you were seeing.

And I wasn't referring to the number of people, I could care less about that. I was referring to the number of tournaments and the conditions in which we played. There was variety and plenty of it.

Well sadly I wasn't. Explains my stretch of horrid play from 5-9ish.

Guess who stopped by 6 minutes before Alex/Jurassic?

If the tour conditions don't start improving, I'm going to throw my lot in with the folks on minna. Sadly, over there, I guess I'd be a g3 for life. Maybe even g4. They'd invent it just for me. (and a few others). I might not even care, just to be able to play in big tours that had variety.

Maybe not, though. I'm a die-hard hsg NON-Jap server loyalist LOL
