Re: Announcement from the host and organizer of the 2017 World Cup

I don't think it is fair to start looking for people to blame. No-one could have anticipated the bug, or without the benefit of hindsight that a full re-set would have been be required to avoid it - there isn't any protocol in the rules about resetting machines before important matches (yet) and the...

Re: 17th KO2 WORLD CUP: The Seeding Groups

Good job with the seedings - I haven't seen the final position list but it's going to correlate strongly with the seeding groups. I did my best to shake things up lower down the grid!

Re: 17th KO2 WORLD CUP: Format and Rules

I'm going to try to remember to ask all my opponents if they are willing to play random pitch and strong wind. It will be nice/interesting/surprising if any of them say yes...

I just want to check the people updating the stats are aware Stephen C (Ireland) = Stephen D (Northern Ireland). I would prefer to remain Stephen D for KOA and general internet purposes.

Re: The 2017 World Cup - The Official Thread
