Looking forward to round 9 when we have all caught up.

 :(y)

JackFace and Rosco are due to play this evening. I haven't heard back from laplazadecarcassonne yet, but I'm sure I will do soon. Any news from anyone else?

Well that was interesting.

The first game went well for me and i seemed to be playing reasonably well.  I won the game but Jack certainly kept me on my toes.  The second did not go so well.  I was on the back foot trying to defend with every single tile.  i could not go on the atack as my poor tile draws, jacks good tile draws and jacks skill just kept pushing and pushing.  His last tile took the game making the 5 point difference.
Just lay the damn tile!

Great games - very tight. As you say, probably just down to tile draw in the end. Cheers!

I have assumed that this tournament is abandoned and have started playing on the app instead :(

I think it would be time to start a new league and / or finish this round and make draws for the unplayed matches.

I would be in for a new league. :(y)
@Dan, What do you think about that?

I would like to finish my matches in this league and participate in another league. The new league could be with expansion, doesn't  have to be same format.

I'm never one to turn down a game of Carcassonne but I think the lack of any meaningful carrot (or stick) means that these things always seem doomed to failure after the initial influx of excitement has worn off. We saw it here and it was the same with The Steve's excellent series of expansion leagues. I guess the situation is slightly different now in that most people have time to play their games, but that won't always be the case and it's never any less of a shame for the people who are participating when those who aren't force it to a halt.

It's also worth remembering that from what I can tell, very few currently active members of Carcassonne Central seem interested in playing Carcassonne online. Certainly compared to say 3 or 4 years ago when there was a constant buzz from various competitions that were going on here. I miss those days. :'(

If either of you, or anyone else, is interested in kicking off a new tournament then I'm sure I'd be very happy to support and take part in it. But until that happens, I'm probably just going to keep myself busy at BGA which has a far more sophisticated approach to online competition as this is effectively what it's built for.

I can take it on me, matches could be played on BGA / JCloisterZone whatever suits anyone. Depending on  basegame / expansions that are chosen.

What about a base game only knockout?  e.g. 8 players, random draw for 4 QF's followed by 2 SF and then the final?

First name drawn for each match gets the extra tile.

Just a thought.
