    Not early, read the rules. 48 hours for CPU games, 72 for user games. If the user games are done in 48 hours, we advance. I sent him a couple of messages last night, even gave him 2 extra hours. I didnt want to do it but I gotta stick to the rules. Had he posted something letting us know he wouldnt be around than I would have definately held up the advance.

    Its real easy...if you cant get the CPU game in during the first 48 hours, just post and let me know. I'll give you the extra 24 hours. If you dont post than I dont know. All I know is Envy was online at some point Sunday so he knew we advanced and thats all I can off of.

    If there are 2 deadlines, you should really post 2 deadlines. Otherwise saying,

    is very misleading.

    Ya I agree the deadline is very misleading. I too believe I have been a victim of a sim game because I saw the deadline was "x" and then we advanced before "x" date.

    logically,

    does not really mean anything to anyone but the commissioner( which makes its purpose and meaning very vague). Its a deadline for advancement not a deadline for getting your games in. The only person that adhears to an advancement deadline is the commissioner.

    I think when ppl interpt the deadline, they assume (because it is posted to them) the deadline is relavent to them and make some incorrect assumption that the "commissioners advancement deadline" and the "play there games by" deadline are the same.

    We should have "play games by deadlines" not "advancement deadlines".

    Good point whw. I went ahead reworded that as well.

    I feel like I just drove one of our better players away and feel really bad about it now. I was angry at first but the more I think about it, I should have just waited. Again, sorry guys but I do hope this clears up this issue a bit more regarding deadlines and advancing.

    So Envy quit because of this?


    Its pretty standard around here, even if there's a 72 hour advance, if everyone is done early you better communicate if you need that full 72. I don't know any commish who wants to screw his guys and give them sim losses. At the same time, its our job to communicate with the league whats up. The answer is simple.........just post up and communicate.

    i agree thats what i wasnt upset after understand the situation with the commish decision.

    what made this big was the NC hopes.

    if he is 7-2 or worse it doesnt matter, and there is no further discussion.

    Exactly...this is why I was torn last night on whether to let him slide or not. We'll move on and I will post both deadlines from now on.

    Let me add that when I joined I read the rules and you clearly stated that in 48 hours if all user games are done you will advance so all cpu games need to played early otherwise it would be simmed. I don't see how anyone could misunderstand that. I checked backed this morning and that was there clear as day and the last time it was edited at that time was September 23 so I put 100% fault on the user.

    I used to be a commish back during the NFL 2k days and I know the emotional roller coaster that you go thru because you want to be stern because once you let something slide you will always get that thrown back into your face and you will in essence be blackmailed into 'breaking' your own rules.But you even have some leeway built in. If the user didn't come to you and say I need more time or I know that it is a 48 hour but blah blah blah then you would have postponed because you have given us an out even in the rules because stuff happens and we all have real lives outside of this.

    So don't feel bad you did the right thing. Don't second guess what you did just learn and press on. The user really is more pissed at himself than he is you because I would be pissed also but it would only be my fault as it is written in the gameplay rule sticky.

    I am of course interested in improving the league in the future, whats done is done and its time to move on, but this load of crap really gets my goat. I read the rules a month ago when the league started, but after a month of seeing the deadline posted every week, I had completely forgotten that there is a clause in the rules that overrides the listed deadline. I have never been in a league were the deadline was not the actual deadline. So I CAN see how someone can misunderstand the rules.

    His leaving the league is a separate issue. This league is suppose to provide enjoyment. If the amount of stress and dissatisfaction you get playing in the league outweighs your amount of enjoyment, the sensible thing to do is leave. We all get different levels of enjoyment from playing, his was apparently not high enough to continue playing.

    I am pleased things will be more clear in the future to avoid this from reoccurring, but hanging this miscommunication 100% on user is garbage.

    I respectfully disagree. This was not the first week that Recc has said, "Get your CPU games in asap, we're not waiting for them." I was the last person done last week, everyone was done within 24 hours of the advance, including the user/user matchup. I made sure that I posted up early on day 2's morning that I would be playing sometime during the day. Its not tough. A little communication is all it takes. Envy is an adult. If a sim loss makes him quit, I say "don't let the door hit you in the ass." What are we? Grade schoolers? Suck it up and do a better job of communicating with the league. Sorry, its just how I feel. In these leagues, you get out of it what you put in.

    Lets move on...better communication on both ends would have solved this issue. Done.
