I don't think anyones gonna do it... but im probably wrong....


He let himself get talked into changing the scoring system as a result players are not bothering with this and the players who may be willing to play 300 games cant get the games filled so that eliminates those players as well from doing it.A few players may accomplish this,but if the goal is to have the most players participate in these challenges I think you have to consider this month a failure.

... and with 90 hours left to start games, let's get it filled FAST!
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

What Dukasaur said!
We need just 3 signups to launch August Challenge Companion 4!
Also need 1 signup to launch the games for August Challenge Companion 3!
(someone dropped out at the last minute in #3 and I have no reserves in that one)

I shall name that playerRaLLy77. Joined every game in waiting and places you on ignore so you cant join. Since the games are a required 12 players and only so many players playing the challenge, it was kind of hard to even join a game. So last month he have the winner joining games and suiciding the 2nd and 3rd place winner to lock up first place and now this month the winner placed all his threats on ignore so they could not join the games. Looking forward to next month !

The actual names of the players are not necessarily so relevant to the fact that this is a systematic problem. I brought this issue up with (EDIT: DoomYoshi) in PMs and on this thread; and he frankly seemed fairly apathetic on the issue. As such, I don't believe much if anything will be done to prevent the ongoing abuse of these players in this challenge and in the upcoming challenges for the forseeable future.

When a player can't join more than ninety percent of the games in a OPEN COMMUNITY EVENT because the actions of only two players, and the challenge organizer doesn't see that as a MAJOR PROBLEM, then it's frankly disheartening.

I know that in my case, I just walked away from the challenge, because the option of joining created games had been effectively stripped from me due to the actions of two players and the subsequent inaction of the challenge organizer.

This challenge is like living in a Zombie movie. Rather than excitement, it's a grueling, depressing struggle. I agree, worst challenge ever.

Actually, in games without round limits, it played out like I envisioned. Round Limits, once again, ruin the game.
