off-shoot benefit really. don't even know if we considered anything past:

1. he was apparently a strong player
2. we thought you were way more likely to sub out as a PR due to lack of time or w/e.

mostly #2.

we got lucky the he implicated Riverman or w/e, didn't really care. but yeah, we were trying to eliminate strong players where possible. obv in an all-SE game that would be less necessary. (or at least obv who the strong players are)

Wolves had a massive advantage in subs.
could be true, but villagers had an advantage in starting lineups.

also helped that kkc (as sub) declared that subs are pretty much always cleared as villas bc of subbing. and we had 2 good ww players come on to the wolf team as subs, lol.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

there has been much debate in pog about whether wolves or villas sub out more and the ethics of subbing (including some failed trials at tracking people who sub out X amount of times and banning them from future games until they sub in Y amount of times. I think the conclusion has been that life happens and no one is doing it on purpose and the sub roles are mostly just variance. However, considering other time commitments should be done before playing. Also, if youre going to be out of town for a day or something make that clear in the sign up thread.

they must already exist on scrabble forums somewhere. but yeah, letters per word, points per letter, points per play with a given letter, points per final three turns, opponents' points per final three turns, etc.

Not sure I can. Finally had enough of twiddling my thumbs at Full Tilt and started a new job this week where I actually have to, you know, do work and stuff. I'll take a look.

I'll do you one better - I was elected as an Employee Representative in the run up to the redundancies in October so I have loads of things I could say!

Unfortunately (as it is for all FTP employees) I can't talk but, to be perfectly honest, the number of people with the inside track on the sale of the company can be counted on one hand. Just read NoahSD for the best view of things possible on here (in my personal and limited opinion).

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

Why isn't there a 2p2 sporting events podcast?

There's a pokercast... time to move to the next level of exposure and monetizing.

Seems like there are some great and passionate minds on this forum. Y'all should set-up a few days per week with some live telecasting or a recorded show. I think you could find a talented host with some guests to talk for Friday NBA nights, Sunday NFL, and Saturday NCAAF live casting. Perhaps, weekly taped shows during MLB and such.

Start small... conquer ESPN, FoxSports, and yahoosports some day.

My $0.02, but I'd likely listen to y'all instead.
