Hello everyone,

One of the main participants has dropped out unfortunately and now I have two choices:

1. I get a replacement (who is already on standby) and we keep everything as it is.
2. I don't get a replacement and we'll have one round less. (For your information: Fewer rounds will not mean more time. It only means this cycle will be over sooner. This option will also mean no guest participants are needed because we should have four contestants then.)

Before any decisions can be made, I need your opinion on this matter.

Please leave a comment below with what you want and have a beautiful day!

Hmm just saw this... Have we decided on what is happening? Honestly do what you all can. Don't forget we are doing this for "fun". Truly I'll go with whichever decision everyone makes. Is the deadline still the same then?

No decision has been made yet because it doesn't affect this round. I have to figure it out before the next one, haha.

I would say, get the replacement :) I wouldn't want the cycle to be over so soon!

I dropped out. I wasn't going to have to to finish or even start my project. I have a lot of other things to do right now. I'm sorry if I disappointed everyone. :(

I'm sorry to hear that. Who dropped out? How will it affect this round? I hope you find someone.

It will not affect this round at all. Only future rounds.
Chevaliers dropped out.

Do the other guest artists want to join only for one round or are there more who actually wanted to join as a regular but didn't make it in time? Depending on that it might be better to end the cycle sooner so the other artists can join as a regular or to get a replacement so we can keep having guest artists.
But personally I'd like to join as a regular

Only for one round, yes. So far I have yet to find people (excluding you) who are interested in the next cycle because most only want to join for one round or maybe two. I will see what the others say and keep everyone posted.

Oh-- Ooooh... For some reason I always assumed there were more ppl.. lol
Then I guess it makes more sense to find a replacement or maybe give each participant a guest artist as an opponent for a round or two.

Haha, no, this group has gotten pretty small which is why I'd sooner opt for a guest participant than a quicker new cycle xD

i think we should get a replacement, it would be a shame for the other guest participants not to join too

Who dropped out? Just want to know who I'm up against, if ever the brackets changed. (Whew, I'm glad I haven't drawn my entry yet.)

I don't mind either option.

This doesn't change anything for this round, so it's not a good thing that you haven't drawn anything yet xD
Chevaliers dropped out.

But isn't he my opponent? Yuna, right? Or did I get the list wrong? :O In any case, I think I'll make it if deadline's on Sunday. I just need to be sure of who I'm really up against before I start.

Even though Chevaliers is your opponent, it changes nothing. It only means you'll have five points extra because you win if you submit something. I cannot stress enough that this round stays as it is, whether your opponent submits something or not. Someone dropping out in the middle of a round has never been reason to change an ongoing round and neither will it now. It only affects later rounds.

Good luck with your entry!

I see. I certainly didn't think of it in that way. I did not survive the very first round two cycles ago, after all, so you could say I've never encountered this situation before. o.o Thank you for the luck wishes! I'll do my best.

Haha, no worries. If there was a drastic change I would let everyone know through note as well so everyone would see on time :'D (Also, I reread what I sent and I realised it may have come across as harsh, so sorry for that! That was not my intention, I just had to type fast because I had to leave Dx)

You're welcome! I look forward to seeing your entry!

Gack, I'm not even on DA often, but I will check in future rounds. Thanks for the heads up!

(And no, I didn't think anything of it. You just said it like it is. Tis okay Kaigara-chan! *hugs*)

I'm done BTW ^___^

I know sometimes things are read in a different mood than it's written and then it comes across all wrong, so I wanted to be sure you knew QvQ

I would love to join if there is option of allowing FF14 NPC to join the cycle (which is a no in rules)

I am sorry, but MMORPG FFs' NPC characters will (still) not be allowed to join because there are plenty of other characters to choose from. Also, finding references of NPCs (especially those in 11 and 14) is difficult and we want everyone who isn't familiar with those characters to be able to find plenty of references without spending hours on looking for refs. If this tournament was still as big as it was in the beginning I'd probably consider it, but since we only have 5-10 participants now I feel no need. I am sorry if that makes you unwilling to join, but I have to look at what is good for everyone.
