    It seems that the cup is losing steam, which is a real shame. I actually thought that it would be easier to arrange matches as the player numbers went down, but obviously not! Very disappointed in all of this.

    Anyway, I'd still like to think that there's hope for this cup and will continue to support it for as long as it goes on. Even if people don't really want to play the game, can't they at least do it for Marcus or Kanar? Look how much effort he's put in here, and it seems that people are being very disrespectful.

    I'm going to message Luna soon and see if we can play our match on the weekend. All hail the Kestrel Cloud - the only one to play all matches on time!

    Along the lines of what Jas was saying a couple of pages or so ago is the problem for me: I just haven't played pretty much at all since my last Cup match, and as much as I like the game and want to do well in a tournament like this, I just haven't been playing it, and it wouldn't reflect my actual skill at the game if I were to play a match like this any time soon. As it is, I've been the main problem in not getting my R4 match against Skrotos32 done, apart from some time difference issues.

    I can't seem to find the time to practise at all, and amongst a couple of new games I'm playing, it's even harder to do that.

    It really sucks that I just can't find the effort in me to continue on at this point. I was enthusiastic about the cup when it started, and I still like the idea of it all and appreciate the work that's gone into it; hell, I even kinda feel like I'm representing Australia in it... but unfortunately my enthusiasm for the game is just not there when it needs to be.

    This may seem a bit ridiculous, but I also don't feel that comfortable logging into the PSN while Anonymous is attempting to hack/disrupt Sony's services.

    Sorry.

    That all said - if anyone feels they want to encourage me to try and find something that makes me want to play and people aren't overly concerned about round 4 overtimes just yet, feel free to try and change my mind, as long as there's time left I may eek up some desire to play... but yeah... at the moment I'm just not feeling it. ----
    One thing I read that I feel strongly against in regards to those people pulling out like me....


    I disagree that this tournament is about one person. I signed into this before Marcus' suicide; and as much as I'm happy to play the game in remembrance of someone who loved the game, I think it would be more respectful to play the game as it was meant to be played or leave the tournament to those who are prepared to do so - not out of what would in my case be a shallow dedication to complete it.
    ----

    Lastly, I'd really like to thank Kanar and everyone else that put time into this event - it's been fun, and I've been nervous all the way through. I'm sorry I can't find it in me to care enough to continue on and have felt this way for weeks, because everything is there to make this tournament great. I guess it just went a little too long for me.
    "get some nuts amplicated and just play your games..

    No one cares who wins or loses your wins or losses will be forgotten in a micro second. But you will always be remembered for being a quitter and a runner.
    you may not have signed up for this competition because of Marcus but you were in it when it was dedicated to him and its common courtesy to play.it is also courtesy to the players who have spent time to organise this and too the other players too

    i hadnít played for like 2 months either im bored of game but im happy to play and lose my next game this week to a very hard oponent.better to lose than be a quitter with a lame excuse.
    it takes 15 minutes to play your games probably 15 minutes longer than you spent writing your excuses here..hours longer than you spend reading posts here....

    sorry to be harsh but quitting is quitting and i expect more from an elite player like you than running away cos you didnt practise much and were scared you might get beat.
    to all the other elites who didnt practice yet played and lost i respect you all and you can all feel proud that you supported the cup cos you wanna be part of community for me you will be remembered for the right reasons get some nuts amplicated and just play your games..

    Ya' know, since people are so frustrated for all the players who dropped out, why don't I fill in for the missing players and race the waiting racers!

    Anyway, sarcasm aside, this cup is taking forever. I remember back in December I won the first round of my first competition ever! I was so excited to play the next challenger, I felt invincible. Then came Vartazian to let me eat his dust, and he beat me.

    So in short here is my message to the lazy racers: Remember the time when you actually won something for the first time, and the joy and excitement that came with it. Pretend like you're a kid again, with no care in the world, where there the only thing that matters is having fun. So play your round in the cup, don't make excuses about it, and just have fun with it.

    Lets try and not get too agitated. Everyone was pleased as hell to be involved first of all, would be a shame to lose that.

    I have actually made an effort to contact my next opponent and should be doing the Kestrel Division Final the weekend after next.

    Results from Final Owl group Match.

    Tiduch vs Fyue3

    Fyue3's tracks:
    - Single race, The Amphiseum Forward, Phantom, Weap on, 5 laps Tiduch - I take the lead on start and keep 1st to finish but Fyue was be always close to me!
    - Single race, Sebenco Climb Forward, Phantom, Weap on, 5lap Fyue3 - Fyue3 take lead on the start and keep 1st for whole time, in 4 lap i was destroyed by bomb (I thought that i got shield before bomb but that was be turbo )
    - Single race, Tech de ra Forward, Phantom, Weap on, 5lap Tiduch - Lucky with weapons for me, on 1st lap i got turbo and autopilot in good position and ~3 turbo in other laps.

    Tiduch's tracks:

    - Single race, Modesto Heights Reverse, Weap off, 6lap Tiduch - Very stressful race for me, I only thought, not to do any mistake.
    - Zone Battle, Moa Therma Reverse, Target 55 zone Tiduch - The best track on zone battle for me
    - Zone Battle, Modesto Heights Forward, Target 55 zone Tiduch - Barrier, barrier, barrier...!!

    Final Score:

    Tiduch 5:1 Fyue3
