So man, why robots?
No change! I fear change!
Triplets! I love triplets!
GC's lovely 1-2-quad based tier system. It's clearly the best!
could an admin validate my game against Al Hutton please? I'd like to find out if I am going to sack my minotaur or not.
I should get a chance to validate some games tonight (babe and wife permitting) assuming no-one else has validated them before I logon...
Cool - I'm keen to see how much (little) my dark elf squad have changed after that last match... :P
(By the way I am happy to volunteer as another DoD admin, at least for match validating.)
I stayed up until 4am trying to get a match against my geographically differently league mates.
I'm really not sure what to do, this is pointless.
Ok, so according to the spreadsheet you're scheduled to face WhiskyTangFox first this season. I see you've joined the Div F community group, that's good. Have you also tried:
- sending him a forum PM?
- mailing/friending him on Steam?
Failing that, there is not a lot you can do but wait for the deadline and if he doesn't show up, take the forfeit. (Discussion - or lack thereof - within the forum community group is the primary decider on who wins in case of forfeit.) It's no fun, but sometimes players sign up and then realise they don't have time to commit (or whatever). In any case, best of luck.
Re-reading your post, I just want to eliminate potential confusion. Apologies if this is a bit basic. If you don't already know, our matches are not openly arranged but scheduled within each division.
Your designated opponent is listed on the DoD spreadsheet under the Fixtures & Results tab and should correspond to the information under the league's Calender tab in-game. (If there's a discrepency there, then please post in this thread to inform the mods as they must have missed something.)
Hope that helps.

Yeah, all Screwie's advice is great, if your opponent doesn't show, then you'll get the win (and double SPPs, which is something, at least!). All you have to do is post in the community group and see if you get a response. If you don't, well, PMs and steam sometimes work, or your opponent may have lost interest straight away, which is a bit crappy for your first game, but not the first time its happened... If you have any other issues, feel free to PM me or ping me on steam to ask any other questions (which is also true for anyone else - my office is always open!) :-)

Helio - you need to clarify which of the scenarios Screwie mentioned above is correct. Either way he's pretty much nailed the routes forward in his post.
From what I can tell he's about -6 to -10gmt But I've yet to ~PM him, I'll get straight to that.
Sounds like you're going about things right - generally we start off in the board group by saying something like "hello whiksytangofox, we're scheduled to play this week, I can do evenings british time 7-11pm but not wednesday, or weekends -is there a time that works for you?"
then you can also use pms and add them as a steam friend and try to get a steam chat going. Most of the time you'll get an answer on the forum group and arrange a time - usually the system works better than it has for you so far, so don't be disheartened.
I just want to develop a collection of injuries that will hamper and later cripple my hopes, is that too much to ask?
Results validated. Except Jiiim vs Jarvis - the sheet is showing as 0-0 but there is no result ingame, whappen there chaps?
/edit - spoken to Jarvis, port issues with the pair of them, therefore administrative draw.

Hi! I'd like to join the league (I actually signed up for the forums specifically to play). I'd probably play an orc team if that's ok.
Just ground out a 2-1 against Niea7/Under7's Necromantic team. Cost me a MNG, but I got to [strike]prance[/strike] dodge a lot. Highlights for me include the Necromantic team's incredible luck when it came to facing sidestep and wrestle actually being useful in general. Kept forgetting to double check whether not wrestling would cause my opponent a turn over, though.
you don't appear to have validated the game in which Hutton smashed my hopes into little bits, and then stamped on the bits.
