Title: 2016 WC and Warmup rescheduling and appeal thread
Post by clyring on Jan 9th, 2016, 3:07pm
This thread is for World Championship and Warmup Round players to post game time rescheduling notices, resumption of play after a forfeit and appeals to game timeout results. Please do not use this thread for discussion on any topic.

If posting a rescheduled game please remember that both players must post. The new time slot* must be given and it must be posted 24 hours or more before the new time.

~clyring

* Please be sure to include the desired time slot number as given on the time preference setting page. Including the actual time will also help as a confirmation that everyone is agreeing on the same thing, but the time slot is the primary basis for the official time.

Hi Clyring.

Apparently I was scheduled for a game yesterday?  And I forfeited?

I never received an email telling me the game time -- only the generic introduction email.  I checked my spam folder and there was nothing relevant.  When I logged in to the gameroom today I saw other people's scheduled games, and that was the first time I realized something was wrong.

I logged in to the chat room.  Apparently there was some problem with Pingdom and the server emails?  I would have appreciated it if someone had sent me an email or PM letting me know what was going on.

Is it possible for me to reschedule my game with Shadow?  If not, can it be unrated rather than a forfeit?

Thanks.
Matthew

I'm fine with rescheduling the game. And if there isn't any time to do that before the WC begins, then I've no objection to the forfeited game becoming unrated.

A few quick notes:
-The forfeited game is already unrated.
-I judged a second email in just a few days for what is only a one-round event was too much. Perhaps this was mistaken.
-I welcome and encourage you to try to schedule a make-up game, and will encourage commentators (possibly including myself) to show up if you publicize the time, but don't think it should be counted as an event game.

I didn't realize that.  Then this isn't worth wasting more of your time on.

I was assuming this would work like the World Championship.  (And you know what happens when you assume.)  I never received an email that had date, time, and opponent on it.  I was expecting to receive that by email in advance of my game, and I had no idea that I was expected to log in and get the information myself.  (Also I'm embarrassed because last year at the WC I was one of the ones who complained about other people forfeiting.)  If anyone else has a game scheduled and they haven't logged in to the gameroom since before the tournament started I encourage you to send them that information.

Ok.  I'll publish the date and time here if Shadow and I reshedule our unofficial rematch.

Sorry about forfeiting. I had some unexpected things to deal with on the weekend. I'll be ready for the World Championship.

I've tried contacting ocmiente to reschedule our game. Some family matters have come up that I have to attend to, so I definitely won't be able to keep the current time of the game.

This is rather last minute, and I haven't heard from ocmiente. Since it would have been ideal for him to have more time to respond to this last minute need, if I don't hear from him soon, it would seem only fair that I forfeit the game, since the problem is on my end (clyring, if other arrangements are possible, just let me know).

In case someone else should encounter ocmiente before I do, I did mention that I can be available this Sunday from 6 PM UTC onward.

In any case, I didn't want there to be any surprises regarding tomorrow's game.

Title: Re: 2016 WC and Warmup rescheduling and appeal thr
Post by clyring on Feb 12th, 2016, 10:51pm
Since I need to TC the currently scheduled game time anyway, I can potentially relocate your game mere minutes before its scheduled start, but of course this can only happen if both you and ocmiente can post consent to some time slot here by then. I suppose that the more reasonable backup timeslots you here unambiguously consent to, the more likely it is ocmiente will be able and willing to get the game moved.

("Sunday from 6 PM UTC onward" is ambiguous about the last timeslot consented to. I suppose at a critical moment I could apply some extra discretion here, but I'd much rather not need to.)

I appreciate the heads-up in the very unfortunate case no agreement can be reached. I trust you will be re-entering for round 4 in this case?

Hey there, this is obviously just a half hour away from your suggested time, but if you are willing and able to play at 7 pm UTC and clyring is okay with it (again, only a half-hour away, so I totally understand if it's too much of a bother), then I'm game.

@clyring Yes, I intend to continue playing the remainder of the games. As for what I mean by "6pm UTC onward," I can be available for an 8 hour stretch starting at 6pm UTC. I can also be available on Monday for the exact same time period.

Post by clyring on Feb 14th, 2016, 2:02pm
Since the official ruling should also be reflected in the forums as well as the chatroom, here it is: I decided that officially rescheduling Shadow-ocmiente when I only received confirmation from ocmiente after the originally scheduled game had been registered as a forfeit would border on surreal despite being in many senses a preferable outcome for all parties.
