MPWC - SF - Group G Thu, 20 December 2012 15:30
Group G


Black-is-Back
Häxxli
dea1
VBallman20
shamogi
womble
1st of last chance (lirex)


I know my opening of this group is not nearly as sophisticated as Val's, but it is here. Very Happy
So, since we are in different times zones, scheduling becomes much more difficult. So, if everyone can list the times that they are regularly available, and we can try to figure out a schedule that will work.

Looking forward to this round!! Very Happy

Re:MPWC - SF - Group G Thu, 20 December 2012 15:54
I will start with my hours, which kind of suck!!

I am on Mountain time -8 CET. I am always available in the evenings my time, after 2000 or 2100, until 0100 (0400 - 0900 CET).
I have certain/most Mondays that I am around, as it is normally my scheduled slow day for paperwork and time off.

During the week, I work from 0630 until 1730 every day, so it makes it difficult for me to play, unless it is during my lunch, which is usually from 1200 to 1300.

Saturdays and Sundays are up in the air, but I always have some free time on those days, just hard to predict when. I am always busy from 0800 to 1230 on Sundays.

I am going to be out of town January 16 - Jan 22, and for the moment I don't know what kind of internet service I will have. But, I will be travelling on the 16 and 22, and will be going across the country and most likely will be not available those 2 days.

Well, I know it is not perfect, but I will do what I can to work with everyone else and their schedule. If playing 1-2 games during my lunch works a large majority of the time, I will arrange that.

Re:MPWC - SF - Group G Thu, 20 December 2012 19:13
My availabilities:

I'm not available from Dec 21st to 26th and from Jan 18th to 27th (which implies I MUST have played my until the 17th).

4-9 am is a nogo on workdays. If all else fails I'm not happy but willing to do that on Saturday or Sunday mornings (= Friday or Saturday evening for Vball).

In general European evenings is all I can offer on weekdays, on weekends I'm more flexible.

I don't think it makes sense to play just 1 or 2 games during Vball's lunchtime. It's hard enough to find 1 date, let alone 10 ...

Suggestion:
We have 13 games to play with Vball, 8 without him.
Let's try to have a "European session" where we play those 8, then look for 2 dates with Vball (or maybe even just 1 with a very long session).

Vball: Do you find a Saturday where you are available during your day? That would be afternoon/evening for the rest, as it's Saturday we all can probably continue after midnight, too.

For me the following Saturdays would be possible
Dec 29
Jan 5
Jan 12

Any of those OK for the rest of us, too?

one more ...

Mon, Dec 31st is a holiday for me (same in Germany?).
So on this day a morning session would be possible.

------

I'm away for the next days.
If you find dates that match the availablities I mentioned you can consider my confirmation as done.

Re:MPWC - SF - Group G Fri, 21 December 2012 22:39
Here is my availablility:
Indeed Dec 31 is also a holiday in Germany....but I will be in Austria.

I am not available between December 27 and Jan 6.
Possible to play weekends, pretty flexible in European evenings (no nights though). Can also sometimes play European mornings and to some extend, but very limited, in the afternoon.
Given Dea's schedule we will probably have to play most of the games between Jan 6 and 17.
Jan 12 is fine for me.
I agree, once we are together, we should play in a row as many games as possible.
It should be manageable to schedule the "European" games. I can usually start after 18.00 CET.

I am around on both Saturday December 29, and I should be around January 12 as well. I don't know the total availability I will have on those days, but I should have some.

During the 29th, I am on call for surgery until after the New Year, so if I am not in surgery, I should have a lot of free time Saturday December 29 through Monday December 31, as I am only working if I am called in for emergency surgeries.

However, if Eva is not around, maybe we can play some of the games I am in to try and make it easier a bit later.

Re:MPWC - SF - Group G Wed, 26 December 2012 17:22
Hello again

we all need to schedule our days (can't keep them all free), so please let's try to agree on a date asap.
We need a fixed date, where everyone confirms that he is available for 5 hours (careful estimate for 13 games, if we play at reasonable speed it should be faster).
"maybe dates" don't work for me, I won't pass on other things I have to do or like to do for sitting in front of my PC to find out that we are not playing - we need something that's guaranteed.

From what we've heard from womble and Brad (hello the rest Wink )Jan 12th is the only Saturday where all players might be available.
So let's try to find a 5 hour time slot on that day - I think starting times from 8:00 mountain/16:00 CET to 12:00 mountain/20:00 CET could be feasible everything else is either too early for Brad or too late for the Europeans.

@Brad: Please check your availability on Jan 12th and suggest a starting date
@others: Please try to make yourself available at that time and confirm

thx all

My availabilities:

Until January 6 (holiday time in Switzerland)I can play afternoon and in the evening

then during the week I'm at work, I can only play after
19.00 (CET) except Jan 9, 17, 18
Tuesday I can play the hole day
on weekends I'm more flexible.

For me the following Saturdays would be possible
Dec 29
Jan 5
Jan 12 (but not between 17.00 - 23.00 h CET, sorry)
Jan 19

Why we cannot play on a Sunday after-noon or evening?

Maybe January 13th?

Re:MPWC - SF - Group G Thu, 27 December 2012 12:59
Adding Häxxli's availabilities we can only keep the date on Sat, 12th as follows:

Start at 21:00 CET (13:00 Mountain)
Play the 6 games with Brad that don't need Häxxli
(shamo and black are only in for 3 of those games - this order would give shamo the chance to arrive later - of course we can switch to adapt it for Black, if needed)
#9: dea, Vball, womble, lirex
#10: Black, dea, Vball, womble, lirex
#11: Black, Vball, womble, lirex
#3: Black, dea, Vball, shamo
#7: dea, Vball, shamo, womble, lirex
#8: dea, Vball, shamo, lirex
(2 hours should be sufficient for 2 5-ers and 4 4-ers, right?)

Häxxli arrives at 23:00
Now 7 games needing Brad + Häxxli
(Order of games fitted to womble who doesn't like "nights")
#16: Black, Häxxli, Vball, womble, lirex
#18: Black, Häxxli, Vball, womble
#21: Häxxli, Vball, shamo, womble
#1: Black, Häxxli, dea, Vball, shamo
#2: Black, Häxxli, dea, Vball
#13: Häxxli, dea, Vball, shamo, lirex
#14: Häxxli, Vball, shamo, lirex

End of session at approx 1:30 for Europeans - not perfect, but still reasonable on a weekend I hope.


Guys, I don't see much of another chance - can you make it work?
Please try and confirm
thx


P.S.: I ruled out Sundays because Brad could only start after 12:30 his time, which implies we would finish at 1am CET (earliest), which is probably too late for many of us who have to work on Monday.

Ok, I try to be here on 23.00 h.

When we not finish on Saturday, we can continue on Sunday.
Then that would be not to late for all.

Is this ok?

Re:MPWC - SF - Group G Fri, 28 December 2012 21:13
Thanks for the details Dea!

I am unfortunately 8 hours behind CET, so it makes it difficult. However, I can play almost any Sunday except the 20. I am also out the 18-19 of January.

However, I really would prefer to play some of the games before the 12th, rather than all of the games in one sitting. But, if that is our only option, I will make it work.

For those of you in this group. I will be online a lot from tonight until tuesday evening. If for some reason we all meet up in the lobby, we can play a few games to get them out of the way. Eva is most likely not going to be around, but there are still a few games we can play without her.

Happy new year to all!

Glad to see that we make some progress

so far Sat, 12th, 13:00 Mountain/21:00 CET is confirmed by
dea, shamo, lirex, Häxxli (starting 23:00 CET), Vball (of course if you manage to get some done before, that's great).
As womble mentioned that as OK before she left for vacation, I guess it's fine with her, too.
Black - are you around?

Let's start to work on the Euro evening in parallel - only 8 games, should be OK in one session.
At the moment I can offer (but can't keep them all free, so please decide as fast as you can):
Mon, 7th
Tue, 8th
Thu, 10th
Mon, 14th
Tue, 15th
Thu, 17th
Starting at 20:00 CET or later

Re:MPWC - SF - Group G Sat, 05 January 2013 03:23
Hmmmmm....

I think everyone has set aside the 12th to play now, but Black can't play that day we are now finding out.

So, what does everyone want to do? I know I can't play euro evenings with the rest of you, so do we want to play every game without Black on the 12th?

However, that only leaves 6 games to play that day and more importantly and worse, it leaves 7 games to arrange with Black and myself in them. Sad

What is the deadline for this round? Do we still want to start at the same time on the 12th if we can only complete 6 of the needed 13 games with me? Especially considering the start time for Haxxli isn't until 2300. Let me know what everyone thinks.

This was the reason I started this post the first day we knew who was in this group as I was hoping to figure out a schedule that we could make work. Any feedback will be much appreciated!

What is everyone else's time schedule of availability? We are going to have to work very hard to figure this out...
We can do it!!! Very Happy

Re:MPWC - SF - Group G Sat, 05 January 2013 14:36
Deadline is Jan 20th for free scheduling, then there's the TD-week until Jan 27th.

As mentioned earlier I'm not available after Jan 18th (and I would not be happy to be botted in TD week because some other players couldn't start arranging dates for 3 weeks).

My remaining availabilities are:

Today+Tonight
Tomorrow morning (so late night today for Brad)

The following Euro evenings (20:00-24:00 CET)
Mon, 7th
Tue, 8th
Mon, 14th
Tue, 15th
Thu, 17th
Sun, 13th

Sat 12th, early morning till night

--------------

I suggest Mon 7th for the EURO evening.

I suggest to play VBall's games without Black on Sat 12th, starting at 22:00 CET/ 14:00 Mountain (3 of them are without Häxxli)


VBall's remaining 7 games (those with Black) are:
#3: Black, dea, Vball, shamo
#1: Black, Häxxli, dea, Vball, shamo
#2: Black, Häxxli, dea, Vball
These don't include womble - any chance we can get them played tonight? As we have to start with a suggestion I propose 22:00 CET/14:00 Mountain (but anything else would work for me, too)

#10: Black, dea, Vball, womble, lirex
#11: Black, Vball, womble, lirex
#16: Black, Häxxli, Vball, womble, lirex
#18: Black, Häxxli, Vball, womble
If we are left with only those 4, maybe we can get back to VBall's offer to play some during his lunchtime which equals Euro evening.
I suggest to play #10 and #11 on Tue, 8th, #16 and #18 on Mon 14th.

We need to be quick now, I hope everyone reads this and confirms as follows:
Black, Vball, shamo, Häxxli: Please confirm tonight, 22:00 CET/14:00 Mountain

Black, womble, shamo, lirex, Häxxli: Please confirm Monday, 7th, 20:00 CET

Black, Vball, womble, lirex: Please confirm Tuesday, 8th, 20:00 CET/12:00 Mountain

Black, Häxxli, Vball, womble, lirex: Please confirm Monday, 14th, 20:00 CET/12:00 Mountain

and just to make sure ...
Vball, womble, lirex, shamo, Häxxli: Please confirm Saturday, 12th, 22:00 CET/14:00 Mountain (Häxxli from 23:00 CET)

I can't play tonight as I have to go into the valley for supplies. I live over an hour from the nearest grocery store and I need to leave this afternoon until this evening. However, I can play now or over the next few hours if everyone gets on. I will log on and see if others come on.

Re:MPWC - SF - Group G Sat, 05 January 2013 17:23
I see that Haxxli is on playing Sysy it appears right now. I am guessing Shamo is out working for the moment. I will start working on getting some extra time off for Monday to make sure we can play some games then as well if needed. Even if we can get 1-3 games in today, that will help a little. If not, when can everyone play on Monday. Monday is the only day during the week that I have some flexibility with work. However, next Monday will not be an option as I have a vacation at the end of next week starting the 16th, so I am very busy next Monday.

So, I will open up time for Monday the 7th if I know everyone will be there. I am going to have to take some time away from work, but I will make this work! Very Happy Very Happy So, everyone please confirm what time you can start on Monday the 7th. I will try to be on as late as possible today, but it won't be long.

What about tomorrow? I can't play until 2030 CET, but I could maybe arrange a little time tomorrow as well.

Thanks!!

Brad, when will you be back?

Black, shamo, Häxxli - can you play late night (depending on when Brad is back) or early morning tomorrow?

For tomorrow I could manage to be here at 22:00 CET - but I'd need to know that tomorrow morning at the latest.

I don't return until later, so I am happy to stay up late if people want to play tomorrow morning. However, I can also play tomorrow afternoon (CET evening), even if we start after 2200 for dea. If we don't make it work between tomorrow, Monday, and next Saturday, I really don't see how it will work.

We need you to read the forums and post your available times, PLEASE!!! I will get on when I get home tonight and see what the situation is for the next 2 days.

just talked to Black on skype ...

Please let's make it tomorrow, 22:00 CET / 14:00 Mountain for the first 3 games (Vball+Black-womble).
We need Vball, Black, shamo and Häxxli.
Please confirm that you'll be there.


Next date Mon, 7th, 20:00 CET.
We definitely need Vball, Black, womble, lirex and Häxxli.
Games with Vball and Black (4 games) have priority.
If everyone is there we can then play some (or all?) of the "Europe games".
Vball, Black, womble, lirex and Häxxli please confirm.

Hi all,

Happy new year to all of you!

I will not be able to play tonight at 22.00h. Earlier is fine, but I need to leave around 22.00h (in addition to that I am ill Sad ).
Sorry.
All 20.00 times for the week are fine for me.

Schedule for tonight, 20:00 CET / 12:00 Mountain

I think it makes sense to agree a schedule beforehand - so we don't lose time discussing what to do next and can just start one game after the other.

The first 4 games must be those with Vball and Black
#10: Black, dea, Vball, womble, lirex
#11: Black, Vball, womble, lirex
#16: Black, Häxxli, Vball, womble, lirex
#18: Black, Häxxli, Vball, womble

Then we can continue with the "European rest"
#4: Black, Hääxli, Shamo, womble, lirex
#5: Black, Shamo, womble, lirex
#6: Black, Hääxli, Shamo, lirex
#15: Häxxli, dea, Shamo, womble
#19: Black, Häxxli, dea, Shamo, womble
#20: Black, dea, Shamo, womble
#17: Häxxli, dea, womble, lirex


I think there's a good chance that we can finish all of that tonight (11 games = 3 to 4 hours?) and would be happy if that's possible.
Does anyone have to leave early? Please tell us in advance, then we can sort the games accordingly.
