So the 27th, do we get a pen or something to write the ships, as it's spelled "shipwritery" instead of "shipwrightery"?

The Tournament Schedule wrote: 
Resolute Rumble-Friday, January 29-6:00am
Looks like I had booched the times on this, and it did not occur this morning as it was supposed to. I'm going to reschedule it for next Friday, February 5th, at 6am instead. This will not interfere with/reduce those tournaments scheduled for February.

Also, don't forget today is Puzzle Day, with events going all day long but the BIG headliners starting at 9pm game time!

I can see one all-puzzle comp of 30 minutes. That was pretty interesting. But all of them being 30-minute all-puzzle comps? This is scuppering [removed]. Lovely idea, but barnacletily executed.

Edit: Offensive or demeaning language is not permitted in the game or the forums, be it filtered or not.

It's cute that you filtered two inappropriate words, but not the worst word. Charming.

The other word isn't filtered in game either. I believe only words filtered in game must be filtered here, so he really isn't in the wrong...

I also agree with Nick here. Kinda lame that it's just the same comp over and over again :(

Bakeoffs please!!

My contempt disagrees, but it's his life.

Normally people complain when the time isn't good for them. So they fix that problem, and people just complain about that, too. Makes me want to get a job in customer service.

I, for one, liked the competition style, but I agree that the unfiltered word and the complaint as a whole were inappropriate.
Is there any way we can start a petition to filter it?

+1 on the bakeoffs though.

I thought 30 minutes was good. You could just concentrate on 1 or 2 puzzles you were good at. You didn't have to invest a big chunk of time for the comp. It gave more people a chance to win a prize. And I love there being a portrait for all 4 places!
