So as it stands , my week was up today 3-13-06 . i was at first pleased to be able to play other maps besides Eden , as I have been playing man2 for awhile now , and enjoy it very much .
My problem , is that a week is not enough time to finish games that are 7 to 14 day games . I now find myself unable to finish games that were started in man ( on maps other than Eden ) due to the expiration of the free week . I can understand not being able to start any new game other than the Eden map , when the week expired . But it is unfair for me not to be able to complete already in progress games , especially when I am in a position to win most of them , now the time will run out , and they will be counted as losses . IMHO these should be deleted so as not to count against me , if I dont have the chance to play to win , I should not be expected to suffer the losses either .
I would appreciate someone who has the authority to delete these games , please do so .
the games are listed in no particular order
#92396 - #92505 - #92417 - #92362 - #92398 - #92399 - #92397 - #92508 .
This is a total of 8 games , I should not have to suffer these losses , and had I known that this was going to happen , I never would have " accepted the honor " . :o

I can end the games in a draw.

Hi Inna, please take a look at the game 92396 before finish it with a draw.
1)I have a great vantage (175%)
2)The time limit was 3 days
3)I suspect he was slow voluntarily with his turns

&...at all events everyone must be responsible about his times of playng, his games etc.

Thanks

Thanks for the response , as for Guderian , let him have a win in that game , athough I have seen many 3 day games take two weeks or more to finish , and I didnt see the need to be in a hurry , as I never exceeded the 3 day limit , everyone has a life beyond gaming lol , or they should .
Too bad that for the last couple of months , MAN can't be opened up to existing players to play any of the maps , with say no new games to be started within the last 30 days .
I have enjoyed MAN immensley , and will not start anymore games , since it is really moot to continue , I shall finish what games I have that are on Eden , and move completely over to playing MAN2 , so Guderian I'll look for you over there lol .... It's fine with me to make the other 7 games a draw ............. thanks . 8)

Good day Inna, I just sow this post and I'm not agree with Lance hunter concerning finishing game #92417 as a draw. My advantage is clearly expressed there, so please complete this game as my victory or leave this game as is and I will complete it by myself due to time limit.

Hmmm...we tried to restore it...
Please connect to the server, the game should appear in your list. Then finish it yourself.

[b][i] well , lets see , that makes it 2 losses for me , and 6 draws , is that correct ? or will this be an ongoing debate for awhile ? Had this situation been reversed I might have had a few wins coming myself , hard to determine with only 6 or 7 turns made , some games fewer than that .
And I'd appreciate Guderian keeping his opinions of my honesty to himself , he got the win , so no need to slander me .
I must say this has been quite an experience , to be awarded the opportunity to play other maps , with no sort of disclaimer that all games must be completed within the week time period . This sort of problem has had to arise over the years , I find it incredulous that I am the first to encounter this situation . Seems to me that a better way would have been a certain number of games that could have been played , rather than a time limit , especially when the winner of the lottery has no control over the frequency of other players making their turns . It's been more frustrating ........ than fun :roll:
