Hi Guys, 

I am a bit busy this week, will try to make my turn before saturday, but in case I won't make it - can you, please, postpone timer till Saturday?

Hi, Tussel can you turn off timer my computer have a problem....

Problem solve… :p

Hi! So after discussions among judges, the decision was that, because it's the finale and due to current circumstances, the time limit is lifted but a 3 day turn timer should be ON, and whenever possible, a shorter timer, so that this game does not take 3 years to complete.

So @Tussel: please put back the 3 day turn timer. Of course, if someone has some IRL constraints at some point, he can still post here to ask for a temporary lift of the timer.

Good luck for the rest of the game.

Hello, timer is off, Aix this is your turn since 5 days ….

Published on Fri, 13 Jul 2018 09:07:43 +0200


1 week is good for me, which means I will be able to play my turn at least during weekends (if I don't get to the PC during the week). Many thanks!

Published on Thu, 12 Jul 2018 21:58:32 +0200

Hello, timer is at one Week...Do you think this is good?

Published on Tue, 10 Jul 2018 10:55:00 +0200


as I said - I have a lot of things going on at the moment, to the point when I come home just to sleep. So playing throughout the week is extremely difficult for me, that is why I said that 3-day timer doesn't work for me (I am sometimes even forgetting to check my email :/), and if you insist on it - you should re-play the finals with someone more loose on the time schedule...

Please switch off the turn timer, I will try to play my turn today, although can't promise.

I´ll be heading off for vacation early on this friday. I´ll be gone from there (the 13th) to the 22nd of July. In that period I can´t promise taking any turns.

Published on Fri, 06 Jul 2018 11:45:14 +0200

Sorry about that...
Replacements are not allowed but if you're on holidays, we can turn off the turn timer for the period, but please specify how long it will last?

Published on Fri, 06 Jul 2018 11:33:15 +0200


I was supposed to play my turn yesterday evening, but didn't had any strength in me to even turn on PC. 
At the moment playing during the week is troublesome for me, I get to do a turn or two during the holidays, so if you insist on doing 3-turn timer, I definitely won't always make it. I tried to warn few times, however this time, I didn't make it.
I believe I should ask judges to replace me from the game (deepest apologies to my teammate Eskild) by some other competitive player.

Hi, I asked news to gab and as he checked, he saw AlX had just skipped his turn. <smiletext6> I'm afraid this time we can't revert as there was no notice from AlX in advance before the turn reached him.

It's sad that a turn is missed but we can't really afford to have this game last 8 months with each turn taking 4 days. <smiletext6>

To plan ahead: could you please post your holidays here? I think Ezekiel will soon be on holidays and unable to play his turns.

Published on Fri, 29 Jun 2018 12:24:04 +0200

Timer is at 3 days...

Published on Thu, 28 Jun 2018 08:56:05 +0200

hoppefuly the timer is turn off <smiletext0>

Published on Wed, 27 Jun 2018 21:48:33 +0200

I am not able to do my turn until tomorrow, apologies to all involved players!

Published on Tue, 26 Jun 2018 21:01:12 +0200

Not anymore. Had it for 12 minutes this time - a bit easier when not out in the wilderness.

Published on Tue, 26 Jun 2018 20:50:00 +0200

This is your turn Gibberish <smiletext1>

Published on Tue, 26 Jun 2018 20:13:12 +0200

Gabriel: You have played plenty of games against me and you know that I am capable of even taking multiple turns per day. I call gibberish.

Published on Tue, 26 Jun 2018 13:14:17 +0200

It s better to Don't set timer and give warning to player who make a lot of time to play! Because Tussel Don't come here for Watch message and Aix and Ezekiel take many time to play ! So we have again this problem!

Published on Tue, 26 Jun 2018 10:28:32 +0200

Hi! Ezekiel warned he would be away on 20 June and his turn expired on 24 June so it seems he warned before the turn reached him. And it is Tussel's fault if the turn was skipped as he didn't see the message posted here. So we exceptionally allow a revert so that Ezekiel can play his turn. Tussel, could you please revert the turn?

Please keep a turn timer, ideally even tighter than 72 hours (anyway we hope you play much faster than that). But please also send a message through the PBEM lobby (where you can see all your games), because I'm concerned some players receive emails from the BF in their spam folder (I do), so may miss them.

Tussel, please try to check this blog and your emails often enough to avoid this kind of situation.

Good luck for the rest, and have a look at the interview of The green elephant if you haven't yet. https://www.the-battlefield.c...

Published on Mon, 25 Jun 2018 09:56:59 +0200

Hi! Please wait, I'm going to check with Markymark and Fistandantilus.

Also, please check your spam folder regularly as for some email providers, the emails from the BF go straight to the spam (e.g. for Hotmail).

Tussel Don't have turn off timer this is now my turn, i have 3 days for play i Don't know what to do...

Published on Sun, 24 Jun 2018 18:33:12 +0200

Hello, i just see your message timer is at 3 days and you have now 6 hours for play, i just ask Tussel to turn off timer… Please for all try to play more quickly Don't use 3 days or more <smiletext0>...

Published on Wed, 20 Jun 2018 14:31:42 +0200

Just took my turn. I am having a brief holiday until sunday (where I will likely have plenty of other issues to attend to), consider turning the timer off when it reaches me once again.

Published on Mon, 18 Jun 2018 23:50:36 +0200

Hi! Please make sure to prioritize this game and play your turn as soon as possible. The pace does not seem to be very fast so far.

Published on Mon, 11 Jun 2018 23:14:27 +0200

Hi! I wanted to clarify that checks were conducted whenever material concerns were raised for the duel game between Jean and gab and no issue of cheating was detected. From what we checked, there was no issue at all.

Published on Wed, 06 Jun 2018 14:04:41 +0200

No, no need for video recording for you as you didn't get a number of warnings sufficient to justify it. You can continue normally.

Published on Wed, 06 Jun 2018 13:48:36 +0200

@Hilliadan, so I am a bit confused at the moment - should we make a video recordings of the game or no?
Because I was not doing any in the first turns <smiletext6> should I start to?

Published on Wed, 06 Jun 2018 12:49:00 +0200

Guys, please try not to escalate things...
gab did ask me to check your videos DURING the game but as he didn't have any specific doubt or information, I could not really check anything. Based on our previous experience with other matches, we know as judges that watching hours of videos without anything specific to look for is useless.
Recently gab raised that point again and I did check the video of a turn gab was vaguely pointing to. The result is that indeed there was nothing weird. The video is not perfect and I'll notify Jean to make it better next time (record the loading and uploading among other things).

I have asked judges to provide feedback on the current issues. @Jean and @gab: please refrain from posting here, you're free to PM each other, but I'd advise to also avoid that, as I doubt it would be very helpful.

@players of this game: the problem on your game is partially solved (still waiting for the feedback of Fistandantilus), so you can continue.
I'm sorry it took such time and sorry also that we need to go through such messages on the game blog. Hopefully now the finale can move on in a more "adult way". It seems normal to me that finales have more constraints on them in terms of monitoring and judging, but that does not mean it has to go ugly.

So have fun and let's play with a good atmosphere! <smiletext0>

"Please Don't write here you are not in this game!"
I will definitely write here because you mentioned my name (which has no connection to your problem in this particular game) and started to make accusations behind my back (which is extremely unpolite in my opinion). I repeat once again: if you had any doubts about the honesty of our match you could create a topic here/ask to pause the game/send the save to the developers and do any other things which are prescribed by rules. Now, after you did nothing 2 months ago and confirmed the match, it is really ridiculous to raise the question of cheating there. 
I will tell you more: every time I got a new turn I saved the pbem-save in order to be able to send it to the developers if a matter occurs. So I have:
- videos of every turn made
- pbem-saves to prove that I didn't use any cheats or anything in this kind
- screenshots
I really don't like how you try to find cheats in every game you lose.
I have to ask Hiliadan to intervene in this situation because I really don't want to hear any more accusations or even any allusion.

"All these constraints, cheats and bad players have killed my pleasure to play."

I think you own an official apology to me. I don't want to play any more games with you before you apologize.

Published on Wed, 06 Jun 2018 08:04:21 +0200

Jean i ask just a video(i have ask this at the moment we play but hilidian Don't do the control!) of our game and in this video no load when you make a video you must start in the menu … I respect you before you say that now i Don't respect you now and i have see how you play this is really poor game. Please Don't write here you are not in this game!
Ok Hilidian i will do this and continue of course of make video of my game without cut with start in menu and finsh in menu <smiletext0>.
And i finish to play the 2 tournament where i am and i stop to play.
All these constraints, cheats and bad players have killed my pleasure to play.

Published on Wed, 06 Jun 2018 00:59:28 +0200

Sorry, Gabriel, but it's a false statement. 
You didn't ask for any videos of my turns during our match and 2 months after. Suddenly you asked for one, I uploaded it and sent it to Hiliadan. On this video I made a difficult fight in a dungeon, then saved and exited to make a 20 minutes pause - some rest - and this is perfectly recorded by the programm and then I loaded the game (which is also recorded), made another fight and finished the turn. So your words "player like jean make video with many cut in all turn without record load and unload" are absolutely unfair and false.
You should really learn how to respect your opponents.

Published on Tue, 05 Jun 2018 21:02:11 +0200

Sory for Don't play, but i wait hilidian say ok for play… I do video of all my turn in on time with load and unload since 2 years. Hilidian want monitor all i do, but player like jean make video with many cut in all turn without record load and unload, so me I have had enough of all these contreats I hope to play with honest players and I think you are both honest.

Hi! Again, please pause the game, you're not supposed to keep playing turns.

@gabthegab I apologize for that, unfortunately, I don't have as much time lately as before.
At the moment I am already prioritizing the tournament games, very sorry about this, but can't make it faster in general as sometimes I arrive home just to fall onto bed. 
If judges think that my participation is unacceptable - they can always remove me from the game and find a replacement.

@Hilladan, I am waiting on your command, then?
