Me too, it's bizarre really. You're happy, so everyone should be.
C'mon Mark...it seems it should read "I'm unhappy so everyone else should"
Also what's with this 'the way the game used to be'??? Kick Off 2 is as it's always been and to play a tournament all you need is to satisfy a very basic critera. You don't have to have autoslides deactivated.
This is the perogative of whomever is taking the trouble to host. We'v had Alkis using them, Robert Swift using them... but strange how I don't see these guys confronted. Maybe it's because they'r a more difficult target.
Infact, I reckon that Gaz should be banned because he's obviously using black magic and mind bending techniques which would put Emperor Palpatine to shame. Techniques which have nullified the free will of...JamesB, Panayoutis, Alkis, RobS etc. and forced them to prefer no autoslides. Infact, I reckon Gaz has also caused the global economic crisis too,the fucker.
The message it gives to us is that you hate slides, but you are willing to put up with them, even travel 200 miles, just to please us. If I am to host a tournament, I don't want to entertain guests who are reluctant to cover the distance to turn up and are clearly not going to enjoy themselves.
We also dislike A>B but we had no qualms in travelling for that tournament just before the world cup. Trust me, I wouldn't travel all that way to 'put up' with the conditions. I don't give a damn to be honest what the rules are because... A) It's the choice of whomever is hosting... B) Whichever rules are being used we'l all certain to have a good time.
But when I read "Hi! I'm Garry and my life's soooo much better now I'm slide free" at the bottom of every single post you make, it feels like you are just rubbing our faces in it. You have had your way and most of us have dealt with it. There's no need to gloat about it.
Don't want this to come across as if I'm answering for Gaz, but don't other people have similar signatures? Regardless, I thought the KOA had a sense of humour about such things. I'm going to go off in huff now with Robert Swift due to him reminding me (through his sig) that he won the last tournament I hosted. Ditto for James. Barstewards.
