I'd just like to say how retarded it is that you have to go to a coin flip to determine the winner if neither player can host, but only one of them was too lazy to download hamachi. IMHO, its that same as being too lazy to show up to a DCI sponserd event on time, and expect a coin flip when you arrive rather then a game/match loss. I think the player who cannot host, in any mannor, and has taken no steps to make it so they could host, should get a match loss. No more coin flips under unfair surcomstances.

Congratulations, you are the infinite + 1 person to post this topic. Some people can't use hamachi.

Though I do agree with you, spelling=tech.

This topic has been beaten to death, and the sad truth is, they cannot require it.

Because, you can't punish people who have crappy computers, no Windows XP, or those who just don't want to download random programs.

Yes, it sucks, but it's just the way things are, deal with it.

I'm sure this topic will be locked.

maybe not, but punishing those who have good computers, windows xp, and are willing to download random programs, sounds just as bad, if not worse.

since a coin flip is a 50/50 shot, it is not a punishment.

hamachi is still a beta program. hamachi doesn't work on non Windows XP computers. hamachi has been known to break peoples computers/internet connections.

Maybe it's you who has been lazy in not unwalling yourself.
