    Gamespy Tournament Issues

    So I need a little help from you guys,

    Gamespy/EA are having this tournament for $250,000 for the xbox BF2:mc game and it was supposed to start on the 22nd of November. It has been delayed and the admins won't respond with any information about the delays or anything else. It's now almost 20 days later and they wanted to start the tournament today (with no map list or format for the game (CTF or Conquest)). They are just running this thing into the ground and they are getting paid to do it.

    Here is a post that I put on the xbox BF2:MC forums:

    EA isn’t the only one having issues. This is quit possibly the worst run tournament I have ever been involved with. I have been playing competitive video games for a while and this is just a freaking joke. There is NO communication from your crack admin team. They tell us one thing and constantly do another. They give us little to know information about the type of tournament we are playing until the day before the tournament.

    The sheer incompetence involved in this thing is mind boggling. I understand that it's HARD to organize a tournament this large in such a short period of time, but you guys are going about it all wrong. Instead of running around blaming all the issues on the players switching clans....why not try and get the community that is here EVERYDAY to help you out. I for one would have loved to volunteer my time to help with this tournament and helped with anything that you needed. In fact I offered to help in 2 of the 12 emails that I sent to the various admins of your tournament that were never answered or addressed.

    I invested a lot of time in this game and buying xboxes for my team and getting them all connected. Yet here we are with no communication from your admin team until 2 days ago and then again today. Why not get some people that know what they are doing to run the tournament. I'll do it, Hell I'll take 2 weeks off work and ONLY do this. All you have to do is ask, but your CRACK team clearly has other issues at hand and is WAY to busy to let the community know about it.
    Seriously, Contact me I probably have more experience running these things that your whole team combined.

    Those asses had put together a tourney at the Anaheim convention center just two months ago and botched it all up by posting the dates and times on their website only to change the date to a different time with out informing anyone. We bitched them out! Because we all prepaid. None the less, they gave us our money back with an apology. This tourney was for BF2 and for 10k and the xbox360.
