Re: Britcon 2019 - Proposed Theme & Timetable

The competition has run, under various rule sets, for twenty years as a benevolent dictatorship and that seems to produce good competitions I'm not sure there's anything benevolent (that is, good) in the catastrophic fall in the FOG player base, Graham. I am sure there can be a myriad of possible e...

Re: Godendag 2019

Was singles last year as well - I think doubles are not really viable for FoG:R these days being realistic.

For a modern competition Dave's idea would work better, Ilford ran this type of competition a few years ago , Rampage ?
It was indeed Rampage - it was an excellent format IMO.

You think I'm negative, Nik.
No, I think you are positive about FoG:AM. However, what I am saying is that despite that you come across as negative and thus, manage to work against what you want. Have a think about how you present your message :mrgreen:

Nik Gaukroger has previously suggested: IMO (and lets face it its all anecdotal) the thing that puts people off comps the most is not losing to a more experienced player, or by how much they lose to them, but where they lose because the experienced payer is able to leverage a loophole or quirk of t...
