Ok guys, I'm back in the real world. A couple of things this week. I'm going to change how we handle past due battles going forward. Any battle that is not played by the following Monday morning will be considered past due and will be considered a make-up battle whenever it is played. Think of it like a baseball game that got rained out and re-scheduled for a later date. This isn't meant to give people free reign to take forever to play battles. The goal should still be to play your games the week they are scheduled. The reasons for doing it this way are that A) I can't wait forever to get the updates out and B) we can't wait forever to know who has format choice in battles. It starts backing everything up.
Having said all of that, there will be penalties for people who are consistently late with their battles. I don't feel like I really have to say this with this group because there's no real problem players, but I don't want a situation where someone tries to hold off on a battle to influence the other player's attempt at getting the next title shot or something like that. Again, I don't think anyone here would do that, but I do have to cover my bases.
According to my list, these are battles that are still unplayed. If I missed the result or it just didn't get posted, let me know. Otherwise, let's please try and get these made up as soon as you can.
