    Re: TFT: THRNY: Ask Questions Here

    If I post a trade in the "I want A Trade Thread", can I edit that if it is before the deadline? And if so, should I just edit the original post or post a completely new one?

    For this contest, you can make all the changes you want before the start of play. Just edit your original post.

    Re: TFT: THRNY: Ask Questions Here

    If I read it correectly, Washington and Beijing are in the same week. So, our 12 players will be possibly competing in different tournaments and obviously substitutions before that week apply to both tournaments.

    Please confirm I've got it right.

    Thanks very much,

    yes, garp.

    Two tournaments that week also increases the chances that you can have most/all of your 12 players active that week.

    Question...it says Olympics starts Sunday August 10th, while Washington starts Monday August 11th.

    Does this mean we can have people in lineup when Olympics start then make a trade in the 24 hours before Washington...and thus have people from both?

    EX. Olympics start, and I have Federer. After they start, but before Washington does I trade him for Roddick. Can we do this and get points for both, or is it one deadline for that week?

    It's going to be one deadline for the week. Things are confusing enough as it is. If I complicate it more, I might go more insane than I already am.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    So do I. Which is why I just can't go there. It's just too much.

    Re: TFT: THRNY: Ask Questions Here

    I'm just wondering.. Will both losing semifinalists in the Olympics get 45 points even if there is a battle for the bronze medal? Thanks.

    Interesting. Hadn't thought of that.

    I think we have to say yes. I don't see how we can fairly change any aspect of the scoring structure at this point.

    Play definitely starts Sunday, but I'm not finding the time. You're probably right, Patrick.

    Whatever the start of play is on Sunday, that's the deadline. All trades for the week must be made before the start of play Sunday.
