The games relevant to advancement are done, the final 4 are in. Big round of applause for Nariziss, Drvumad, Daviddesj and LEiss! Ok, now the "bad" news. The patch is coming a week from today -- that is an official announcement -- and it is going to have balance changes. I do *not* know whether games started pre-patch will be impacted. Absent this info, we need to wait a week and play with the new rules, since having them change mid-game is obviously a no go. It is not viable for you to be stuck with the old version of the game for possibly several weeks - Drvumad would likely actually go mad. I'll ask on the RE forums. My hope and guess is that games that are in progress wont be effected, in which case we can get started. Please use this forum to hash out a format you can all agree on. So far, I think David and Drv have expressed a preference for one last round robin, but perhaps I am misremembering.
