First of all Medic, unlike you I will not go to your level and try to bash you, I'll just try to state what happened.
Last nite, at 10:00 only 2 LOA hpb members were logged on. They have known about this for a week so I dont know what happened. Anyways, at first I talked to Dry Ice and told him what our situation was. He said, that it would be no problem if we had to rescheduled since it was the championship. Then Fanman comes out of checking his ping and says no that he wont reschedule since he had to cancel plans. Ok thats their choice it was simply a request on my behalf. Then after that, I asked Fanman if we would wait 20 minutes. The match was scheduled for 10:00 and it is supposed to start 5 minutes after scheduled time. He granted me 15 minutes which brought the time up to 10:20. At 10:20 we had 4 hpbs logged on. And our referee was Sirex. He got booted so we had to wait for him. Then, no one could make a room with chat in it. Finally at around 10:40 the first game was launched when it was 4v4, and QWL won by 14 frags. The second match it was also 4v4, and mystery on our side lagged out. And xena had to go in, so WE were a man down for awhile but did not complain. Then the thrid match arrives, it starts out as 4v4, safire lags out, and we end up playing 4v3. The match started with 4 players on their side and it was a few minutes into the match. Their backup was not present, regardless of why. So we played the rest of the match out and won. It was not how I would have preferred to win the match but I was by no means willing to grant a replay of the third game because:
1) In the rules it states the game must start with 4 people for each side... if someone lags out that is not grounds for a rematch.
2) Before the match I asked Fanman if he would play 3v3 if that was all we had, and upon the advice of Medic, he said no he wouldnt do that.
3) If the same had happened to us we would not have been granted a rematch by qwl, and Ive never even heard of an instance where a clan has done that.

Sirex the ref said there was no problems with the match at all and did not see any validity to their claims of a protest.

Medic came into the QWL room before the match and told them to make the match atsrt at 10, and play us with 4 people regardless. DI would know about that since that was how they played ST (4v2). Medic really had no interest here except to damage LOA. When I asked him why he said, "what goes around comes around." This would assume that we had tried to screw over DI.

I dont know how many times I have to say this to make this completey clear.
You guys have 4 players. That is a large difference between our predicament last nite. If Xena had been there, she is hpb and would have played. It wasnt about getting our 4 best it was about getting any 4 at all.
You guys gave us the 3 times that you were available. We picked one, then 2 days before a time we agreed to and made plans based around you said that no you cant play then.
And if we do play you that we are lame and its not a real win.
Yah know, Ive kind of given up on LOA ever getting respect, everyone always wants to screw us over. Its no big deal. Im sure medic will reply to this and say something to the affect of how stupid I am, or to go get a life, or that im just completely wrong. Thats nice.

Drky, I know disputes are not supposed to be brought here but I felt I had no choice.
