    We all made it to the playoffs so I don't understand why is there a big fuss about this - about the scoring, games, whose right or wrong.

    Don't we all just want to play some high level basing games here!?
    Pretty much this. All these threads were completely unnecessary.

    Hopefully server lag doesn't create more issues, but there's been massive C2S ploss issues two nights in a row, so not looking good.

      Like or hate Og, nobody else is stepping up to run this.

      He's not staff and communication is not exactly the easiest thing, considering. Also, if you haven't been in this position when things go wrong, let me tell you how it goes: you get 15 people PMing you at the same time and more than half are downright hostile, slinging all manner of insults at you, etc. Guess how that feels? Not so good. You have to have skin thicker than the hull of an oil tanker to listen to that and still show up the next day.

      Maybe you disagree with the calls or think things should have been handled more professionally. The bottom line is that if you don't like how it's run, you don't have to play in the league. Staff will give forums, bots and hosts to anyone who is willing to run a league of pretty much any kind in the zone, and there's no reason you can't get some friends together, put together a plan and run your own. (We maintain the field, you show up and play.)

      We're all just volunteers making do as best we can. The virus and the lag both have everyone at high stress levels. Good time to take a deep breath and think through our next posts or PM spams and imagine the guy on the other end of the internet cable as a human and not words + a spaceship.

          i think the difference here is you're a genuinely nice person trying to help. ogron is known to be a complete asshole to 80% of the zone and actively enjoys shitting on anybody who disagrees with him or anybody he deems "beneath" him.

              mmm idk my rapport with overall player pop seems pretty good? also, i wasn't snorting adderall before matches (snorting is a huge waste); i was taking large doses very late every night.
