    If that were so, then how did we manage to lose so many challenges that were "in our favor"??

    I would say your go to guys got burned out from all the games they were playing, I often lose games when I've reached the point where I am burned out. I am smart enough to tell my Clan Leader not to put me in any for a week or so! 🙂

    Now you are the one sounding silly.
    REally? You don't think your go to guys were getting burned out and that is why they lost those games, keep in mind I know them. 🙂

    REALLY. I monitored everyone's game load regularly, as you will recall.
    I also had 20 "go to guys" including myself.
    I had faith in every one of them.
    I could not control the clan mates who died and had all of their games timed out by their opponents. I could not control the various illnesses or family crisis' we had to deal with. I monitored when guys were playing well and when they had dry spells.
    I dealt with all of it. Those things you have to deal with, some more than others. But there is no way that we lost all of those challenges just because of that. Do you forget we played SEVERAL 20 vs 20 challenges and many 15 vs 15 or more during your time here. We played one 20 vs 20 with a clan we were way overmatched because they had too many 2000 rated players for us to cover so we started from way behind. We played a number of challenges we were not favored to win, but somehow we did. We didn't win them all. We were one helluva clan, and we still are.

    No, you aren't the Clan we once were, you are different clan some of the old guys still there, but still look for the advantage in every single challenge you make, you use to look for a slight edge. Your new Clan Leader looks for a land slide is the big difference I see. It was a shame about those we lost who died or just left the Clan. Keep in mind they were also chess friends of mine. While I was in the clan didn't pay much attention just played my games and tried to win all the games I could, over 1600 wins in 13 years, not bad or great , but more wins than loses. I remember playing in many tournaments where I made the difference along with a few others no longer there. Metallica did have one hell of a run 7 wins 7 years in a row will most likely never be beaten and I was a part of it. Many of them them are still there, and many are also gone unfortunately. I have always said never count Metallica out. Gertrude was counting you out months ago, now that you have a roll going counting you back in it. I never saw anyone like him jumping from side to side before. Sounding more like your old self, the pettiness just isn't you! So if you had 20 go to guys you would be counting yourself as one. 🙂

    You are spewing abject nonsense.
    That both Metallica and Breaking Bad are both winning over twice as many games as they lose, and yet, only one of the 2 clans is taking on unfair challenges.
    And here we are during a time where the matchups are governed by a set limit to a difference in player ratings (200 points), yet someone must be cheating.
    And the accusation is coming from a member of one of the clans.

    You think your argument flies just because you keep spewing it like a broken record.
    I enter this discussion because I defend the accusations against my clan.
    And btw, it's not just my clan, it is also shortcircuit's clan and every other member of our clan.
    I will continue to ignore your posts about who is running the clan and that our clan is not what it once was.
    You can keep delivering that drivel. Because you have to say something, you can't just walk away from a post.

    This thread is all yours. After all you started this nonsense, starting on page 1.
