|MESED withdraws from CSL by fisk at 2004-01-19 (21:23) CET (4 comments)|
We're sad to announce that we hereby withdraw our team from the CSL Qualifier Cup #1 as a direct response to todays happenings. There is no reason to play in a cup where there is no order and where the administrative people take no responsibility what so ever. Read through for the full statement.
We're sad to announce that we hereby withdraw our team from the CSL Qualifier Cup #1 as a direct response to todays happenings. There is no reason to play in a cup where there is no order and where the administrative people take no responsibility what so ever. Due to Steam's four hour downtime on last thursday, the games for that day was cancelled and no further notice was given. The days went past and no more information went out to the participating clans.
During today, the administrators obviously decided to start the matches again, with a quite hectic time schedule. They did however not bother to notify the clans (by their clan leader) of this, but simply just updated the topic without further notice. To make a short story short: Almost no teams showed up. After we lost our first match against greed, we've not played a single match. We discovered the fact that we should play a match almost 45 minutes too late, but our opponents didn't have any more of an idea than us of what was going on, so they didn't have any players to play the match. Our second walkover in three games was a sure deal.
Then we did actually try to keep to the schedule, which showed another game at 20:00, then a new one (for the winner) at 20:30 - against, you may have guessed it, greed (well, according to greed anyways, not according to their own web page, where glorify lost to greed.. a match greed could confirm that they lost). Well, at 20:00 we're supposed to meet intelligence, but the conditions being as they are, they obviously didn't have a team ready again after their last match in CSL. Notifying the administrators of this, we we're told "ok".. And then nothing more happened. We waited around and provided some more information about the fact that they could not field a team in time for the game (keep in mind that we're now talking somewhere around 20:20 .. and the next game was supposed to begin at 20:30). Then suddenly, the following happens:
[20:33] * nuguns is now known as ngns^aw
[20:33] <ngns^aw> ok
[20:33] <ngns^aw> play tomorrow
[20:33] <ngns^aw> then
Keep in mind that all other teams that failed to field a team, were given a prompt forfeit. This time however, where there are SEVERAL games waiting with several people just waiting for the other matches to be played, everything is suddenly moved another day ahead. This is the only notice given, the web pages has not been updated and the topic of the channel has not been updated. There was given no response to my questions on private message or to any other of the competing teams. To say the least, these are conditions that are very far from satisfying. We're not ready to waste even more time on this event and have therefor decided to withdraw our team. We apologize to all those who were looking forward to seeing us in action, to our next opponents Intelligence and to the public, but sorry, enough is enough. We're not going to waste several hours each night on IRC for matches that are not going to happen and where we can't count on all teams to be given a fair treatment.
We will not compete in any event organized by the same group of people until there has been a severe reorganization and where the clans who play yet again are respected as contestants.
