    Probably because it involves some resemblance of work.
    How much do you get per click? And how much do they get?

    I hope you realize many of the same people that participate in 19’s are participants in other brackets my friend. Stop projecting.

    99.9% of those "participating" in 19s do nothing towards setting up the twink cup. Dont care what other brackets they play either.

    It's a simple fact- if you want a tourney in a bracket other than 19s set one up yourself. You look stupid requesting that a 4 (maybe 5? Idk) year old tournament change brackets just because two fairies on the forums are unhappy

    Fucking hell you're dumb.

    Haters are gonna hate. There isn’t too much you can do to change them. All one can do is hope sooner or later they will see the fault in their ways.

    You're right, maybe some day you'll realize how dumb you sound trying to move twink cup to a new bracket.

    This site was built because of 19s. A majority of the people here play 19s. 70s had its day and I agree the year or two that it was hot we should have hosted our own (which we did later) and it made around $4500.

    Good to see Troncat still around.

    I miss Jayto and Gone though. =( 70s was a blast.

    The comment was about your constant insults. It really is all you have. And you proved it again in the quote above.

    I am not trying to move it my friend. It was merely a suggestion for the betterment of the website and for the tournament itself. This isn’t the “19’s vs them” argument you are looking for. I know you really want it to be that. It simply isn’t that. You may see it that way. That is just you and a few other 19’s projecting their feelings on others.
    Unlike many others(not all) on this resplendent site, I (and many others) am not beholden to a singular bracket. Nor do I hold a tribal feeling towards any single bracket. I have chosen to participate in more than one of them. Including playing 19’s. I have been playing 19’s since before the “great Ruin Migration”. You probably aren’t even aware of what that event is in the annals of Twinkdom.

    /cheers

    While all this may be true do they still?
    Companies/businesses must evolve if they are to flourish. Does xpoff want the TC to flourish or wither and die like Hastings. :)

    The TC needs to be planned months in advance. It used to be. Rules should be put in place by a neutral committee and not changed based on the player’s opinions. Revisions due to game changes will happen. The date should be set 5-6 months in advance. Can’t make it with that much notice then tough sh!t. Real tournaments don’t rearrange dates.
    The sad thing is I suggest this same sh!t each and every year and each and every year it is ignored.
    The time to start planning the TC’20 will be at the end of this one. The announcement should be made in January of 2020 with a June/July date.

    /cheers

    Try and find a team of people who can actually commit to devoting hours and weeks of their lives over an extended period of time for free, of which who are competent in graphic design, crowdfunding, streaming, commentating, network marketing, decisive decision making and to top that off can remain silent when everyone chooses to attack them with no thank you or praise.

    If you can, i'd suggest that you snap them up immediately and host a twink cup and employ your strategy, as these people are unicorns.

    Alternatively, redirect them to me :)

    That’s the true challenge.
    Is finding a volunteer(s) to do something such as this that gets little to nothing in return except grief from the participants.
    People are always wanting something for nothing in return.
    BTW, I have volunteered my organizational and project management skills in the past.
    Nothing I have stated has been directly against you. In fact, I have praised you 2x. I know exactly how time consuming it can be. And how unappreciated it is first hand.

    The hard part is finding the people, that I can confirm.
    The second hardest part is to appease the masses, whilst maintaining a competitive rule set that isn't favourable or influential on the play style.
    Organisational and project management skills are not in high demand unfortunately. What is in demand is insightful players of the current meta who are genuine and completely unbiased with no hidden agendas and do not seek glorification in exchange for their advisory.

    Running a Twink Cup in the past has proven to be hard enough, even the good ones. Having numerous other projects that are demanding to juggle alongside planning the Twink Cup makes it even tougher. Oh, before anyone says something along the lines of "if you can't do it then don't ****ing bother in future" I say to you, if someone else could step up and do it instead of me and it not be a shambles come game day - i'd love to hear from you!

    Ok safe space for all, sorry grandpa

    I'm not currently playing 19s. Only played maybe 20 games tops in bfa? That being said, you're dumb & tink cup is a 19s event.

    I've played 19s, 20s, 29s, 39s, 60s, 70s and 80s. I also started on Ruin in Vanilla (mannoroth) and didnt have to move during that migration. Get your head out of your ass acting like paying $25 to transfer and get games makes you holier than thou somehow

    As I stated, if someone can’t state anything without personally insulting someone perhaps they really don’t have anything really worth stating.
    Insults, in the end, make the person making them look bad my friend. Not the other way around. But insulting others, people tend to project their own insecurities and self doubt. And many times it only makes them look worse.

    Y'know what I heard about people who focus on the insults/grammar/motives of others? They're trying to deflect and avoid the subject at hand.

    Tldr you're wrong (and still dumb).

    Have a good day!

    We are bumping the thread at least. Lol..
    I have made some suggestion(s) to get some $$$. After all, getting prizes for the TC is what this about. What have you suggested that is on topic? Well??? Do tell...

    I already said that Conq should put the $0.01 he owes me towards the prize pool. If he does, I'll match it.

    So technically I did more than just make a suggestion. Maybe you should be more like me.

    So Ally, with your organizational skills, why haven't you organized a twink cup in another bracket? You suggesting it isn't necessarily a bad thing, but unless there's an actual want from that bracket (20s?) It just wont happen. I don't think many people are against it, but where is the drive to even do another one?

    Also @Blackout you're doing great lad, you can't please everyone but one does what they can.
