Yo dudes.

I'm still traveling but will be back in NYC in a week or so. Starting to get things together for this falls FFA League. I was hoping that people who were planning on attending pretty regularly would chime in on what day of the week & time would most likely be best for them, or just drop in and start generating a buzz.

That is a terrible time. People work 9-5 jobs dude... I don't even get home until about 6 pm. And Friday? Do it on a day that people are less likely to have plans... like midweek. If u keep it at that time, you can 100% count me out.

The reason I liked Friday 4-7 is that

a) Euros wouldn't have work the next day so could stay up to play
b) I'd be done early enough that I could still eat dinner and go out for Friday

However its true that the time is difficult for west coast people especially since they wouldn't be off work in time.

Like you I don't want to do weekends though.

What do you think of either Monday or Wednesday 5-8? If you get home at 6 you could still get an hour of play in every week, enough to rack up quite a few points.

Initially I was hoping to alternate between atlantic/pacific optimized times but I feel that would be too complex for your average myther.

again, a lot of ppl work 9-5 and then commute home... any earlier than 6 pm est and you exclude a ton of N. Americans on the east coast, which is probably more than 50% of the player base... and any earlier than that, and you are also excluding most of the west coasters as well.

Point taken but I can't really do much later than 5-8... west coast is going to get somewhat screwed no matter what since they're 3 hours behind me and on weekdays ill be eating dinner around 9 and probably in bed by midnight.

Maybe 5:30 - 8:30 EST? Thats probably the best I can do... and it pretty much sucks for euros though I'm sure there's some who drink & play for an hour or so around midnight. If you get home at 6 (7 EST) you'd get an hour and a half of play.

Would be nice to hear from some other potential players as well.

I don't think there's any way to avoid weekends if you want to include both Euros and west coast in the same games. Either need separate pools/fallbacks by region (or really cater the tournament to one region) or you pretty much have to use weekends I think.

Yea I realize that which is why I wanted to find some more hosts so we could do a conference system but noone stepped up.

Seriously not going to do weekends though...

I think 5:30 - 8:30 is the best compromise. Yes it disadvantages west coast and europeans a little bit but if last year was any indication a top player can easily rack up enough points in a week by showing up for 30 minutes to an hour.

HH has informed me that Wednesday isn't good for him. EW also told me that Mondays were best for him. Combined with adren not wanting Friday, it starting to look like Mondays 5:30 - 8:30 est will be the appointed time. Its not like this is all set in stone anyway. How does that Mondays sound to everyone?

Or I might just do Thursday 7-9 since all of Europe seems to be afk at the moment.

It started only 30 minutes earlier last year! Is it really that impossible for you to play from, say, 11:30 pm to 12:30 am? That's prime after-dinner mything time.

Slate & Funky requested a different day & said they might be able to host, so the Barbaria Conference might change day.

SlatE wanted any day Tues-Thurs, Funky wanted Saturday.

Any other input? Hopefully one of them will post here.

You'll have to ask slate on the server since he never checks forums, but it looks good to me. If you can get his consent as a backup host/facilitator I'll get punk to give you access as tourney organizers so you can add rounds/games for me to score.
