We apologize. It was inappropriate of us to make light of your fantastic "kill" result. Mea culpa. It was a significant feat, indeed. Kudos.

If you wait to hear from RSI, you'll continue to be disappointed. Check this board more often -- it was posted here months ago. Sorry you missed us!

So what does that make 5 TCs and 4 RUs for TMM this FtF? How do you guys let such things happen?

And what is most important; Why would anyone want to play in tourneys if one person keeps winning most, if not all of the prizes. I think the same thing happened in the 2013 Death and Taxes tourney.

That sounds good on paper. Too bad reality keeps smacking everyone in the face.

Let's see .....
We got smacked in the face - twice, but we will be back for more.
(Having sat in THE SEAT in 4 fights in the last 5 FTFs and won 2)
............
Also orders are out - The Veteran Assassin is after TMM and TUM. Wink
.............
The "fun" of a FACE is not all, not nearly all, in the TCing. (TCs DO enhance the experience, though.) Cool

I am just saying I understand why people avoid tourneys.

Maybe I am awake after having so many high wit, high will warriors do terrible and not learn anything.

You have the ability to hire assassins? Shocked

This is a common mistake by many. Tournaments are not won because your warrior has a high WT or WL but because of intangibles. What sets the perennial TC winners apart from the rest of us is their ability to spot these warriors.

Also, the Tourney game is so refined, many target specific Classes.

This combination, helped by the Prizes previously won and what must seem like a limitless amount of Team Rollups set those Managers apart.

While I aspire to be like them, I do not begrudge them their success. Congrats to all of the TC's from this past Face.

I don't begrudge them as well. As a matter of fact, you just proved my argument.So, one guy wins nine prizes. He then distributes them amongst his best warriors. Probably the same guys who were good enough to win the prizes in the first place.

To be honest, I enter tourneys only to learn skills. When I am lucky to get skills.

How did it go?
