We're running into a problem here

I know how much of a hassle it is to schedule your weekly dnd sessions so I think we should look into regrouping groups a and b but id also like you think about doing a break or whatever like ltq suggested because i think its going be even more of a hassle /if/ we do the rescheduling now because that would push everything back a lot more etc.

and it's not really in anyone's favor to do that tbh.

So basically I think it would be POSSIBLE to take a break depending on Edo and the rest of the players, but it's already extremely hard to align all of our schedules to dnd and I'd rather not *bleep* something that only occurs once a week tops (we've been taking breaks pretty much every other week because it is often impossible to find a time that works for everyone or at least a majority of the group).

I don't really think it's unreasonable for me to prioritize dnd over this when this can be (presumably) more easily rescheduled to later in the week. Dnd doesn't have that option since almost everyone pretty much only has 2 to 3 viable days a week, and even then it is a stretch

So, what we will be doing in accordance with the good people at DnD, the race for Group A will happen as planned, and DnD will reschedule to start an hour earlier and have an hour break at the time MK8 happens. Nabber will switch back to Group A.

As for Shoey, I can put him in Group B (23:00), and put 4td0 in Group C (13:00) to even the groups out.

Is everyone okay with this, especially Shoey and 4td0?

Can't do morning because of work. Could do around 8-10pm. I have a conference on Tuesday so I can be up a little later Monday night (until 1am) but would prefer not unless it's unavoidable

has the survey changed at all from the last mk8 tourney, because i can't figure out how it'd get messed up outside of user error.

Except for the date range, the survey has been the same for the past two years.

Fanta, have you looked at FW's suggestions of going to group A (07:00 your time) or C (05:00)?

Welp. Gonna throw in a last option.

As it looks now, the C group can be moved a little without too much trouble because its current participants have fairly similar schedules in later days.
However, I would like you to double check your survey and change it so that it matches up with your actual working schedule, so I don't plan you in another impossible spot.

Would you like me to do this?

Re-opened the survey and Mon-Wed this week have "I'm free" deselected. All the hours I listed for the other days are gone as well. I'm using mobile so I don't know if that has any impact on it.

Like the other weekdays I'm unavailable until 8pm. Can be up late on the Friday if that helps.

When you select "I'm free" it doesn't save times, as there are no times to be saved when you are free that day. Otherwise you wouldn't be free.

I will note down that you are away until 20:00 on all weekdays, and get a suggestion out for a place in group C in a few.

When you go to group C, Freakworld will move to group B.

Alright, what I will suggest for Group C is the following.
In order for Fanta to join it without negatively affecting the other players, the race should happen at July 08, 2017, 05:00:00 PM. For Fanta this is Sunday 07:00, for the rest it is Saturday afternoon and evening.

I would love a reaction from at least Fanta, and maybe the other group C players if they don't have objections for this.
