Yeah, I know - I went through the same thing with my guys. People who said they were coming never showed up, and others who'd said nothing just turned up on the day. I had a couple newbies running with us, also, including a Trialist (not a full member yet).
But all things considered, it worked out nicely to some fairly balanced teams, at least in numbers, +/- one more or less (regrettably you could have capitalized on a higher man advantage - our apologies for that once again).
As for the rematch, I've already got a fellow on my forums asking, "When's the next one?"
But as I explained to him, I've somewhat exhausted myself pulling teeth and passing law these last 2 weeks just to get this last one going, and the wife and kid (who I'll have this weekend - get him every 2) should quite deservedly get some of my attention for a change.
Don't get me wrong - I'm ALL for having it, but someone else needs to take this on, and should we happen to schedule it, I'll almost certainly make the War.
But don't worry - I did offer a rematch, and I'll see it through that it's done. It just might have to be a little further away.
So your not in this weekends wars? I figured we would have two? One Saturday and one Sunday. I know its Thursday already. I didn't game at all yesterday. But I prefer to know like today for Saturday's war. Cause last time I didn't know about a war til like 5:30PM Friday night before I was signing off for dinner. Then I stayed on to spam messages to make sure I had enough on. Six I wanted on couldn't make it or didn't know and didn't play.

Well, I've been hesitant and nervous to return here after being ambushed and lambasted in-party on XBL....
So, since I have no magical ability to snap my fingers and have -poof- a bunch of my guys ready, here is what I suggest:
- Since you seem keen to crush us on the new DLC Close Quarters maps, then pick ANY date in JULY, after EVERYONE has got it.
- This way, everybody's got LOTS of advance notice, and there'll be no changing the dates, times, FOR NOTHING. Once it's set - it's SET. Period. None of this wishy-washy beat-around-the-bush business around the date or time. Pick it and set it. Done.
- We won't even debate it, just tell us when it is - and whatever that date is, we'll show up with 2 guys, 8 guys, 12 guys, whatever - and you can beat up on whoever's brave enough to show up on that day.
- If we're short on numbers at least we'll have a better chance of making the 8v8 requirements. If we are short - too bad, our problem, not yours - just get your licks in and be done with it.
Let me know what you decide. Date, time, game mode, etc. Your server. Password protected, so we know only those who belong should be there (but of course if you want to kick a bunch of ours just for fun - knock yourself out. We did it by accident, but you can do it on purpose if it'll make you feel better).
After this, I want nothing more to do with you guys. I already don't, but I'm trying to fulfill my word here, is all. If you can't pick a date in July and want to demand a match in like, half-an hour from yesterday or something, then go ahead and shout to the rafters all you want - there'll be no rematch at all then.
I'm not sure if you all feel this way - but Graw was pretty severe about it.
I only ever wanted to be reasonable and respectful. If you can be reasonable and respectful - we can have a rematch. If you don't want to be reasonable and respectful - then we won't.
