LaplazadeCarcassonne 96 vs Sinscerly 107 -- difference 11
Sinscerly 79 vs LaplazadeCarcassonne 93   -- difference 12

First game was quite about the points, I managed to finish some late projects, while laplazadeCarcassonne had no meeples left anymore.

Second game was quite stupid from me, I've let myself gotten blocked... and had no meeples left on the end, so congratz LaplazadeCarcassonne for that one.

Were some good games, now all you finish your game so I can get to round 4!!! >:D >:D

The result was a convincing 2 - 0 to Bekse (especially with the second game)

Game 1:



This game had it all. It was delayed because I was suffering from connectivity problems. Then we finally managed to get a game going on the online server but it crashed and the game was lost. We started again with me hosting the game, which also crashed, but I was at least able to save it and reload it (after 4 or 5 attempts) and we managed to finish this game successfully with Bekse controlling the game throughout and taking a 4pt win at the end of (what felt to me like) a close and evenly-matched game.



Game 2:



Grr. This one was a disaster. I could blame my massive loss on the fact that my son woke up and wouldn't go back to sleep so I had to relocate to the sofa and had him sitting on me, or I could blame it on the tiles which seemed against me from the start. But ultimately I just wasn't really in the game and couldn't get back into it once Bekse had expertly punished me for taking too many increasingly desperate risks. Next time I'll get Adda to take my place. Sorry for not putting up much of a fight in this one Bekse... :(



2pts +48PD to Bekse
0pts -48PD to me

Onward and upward!

I'm hoping that the final match of this round will be played within the next couple of days. Then we will go into Round 4.

Always happy to schedule a game or two in if you're itching to get some practice before the next round? Feel free to drop me a PM. :(y)

Maybe introduce some kind of time slot for next rounds?

Something like: "games must be played in the next 2 weeks"

Indeed. That's the intention anyway. The difficulty comes when this period elapses and there are still games to be played. What do you do? You can say no result = no points are awarded to either player, but this isn't fair as it's usually the case that one player has genuinely tried to make the match happen whereas the other hasn't. Should both be penalised in the same way even though one player is more to blame? However, if you do try to apportion blame to just one player then this is usually their cue to take it personally and up and leave in the middle of the tournament. Then it becomes a mess. :(

I'm aware that some players are more restless than others, and it can be a struggle when rounds drag on for longer than most of us would like them to. I feel the same way. But people have lives outside of Carcassonne too, and sometimes these delays occur regardless of our best intentions. I know it's frustrating, but for me it's more important that people who experience whatever difficulty remain part of the competition despite this, and I would say the same of any other competitor including yourself under the same circumstances. :(y)

I'm glad you're enjoying the competition (I know I am), so if it's not running as quickly as you'd like it to I'd be happy to offer myself as a sparring partner for a few games while we wait for the next round to begin? If anything I'd love to avenge our second game from this round (or at least not lose by such a huge margin again!) >:D
