Rage here

For all of you Competitive players who knew what happened tonight, let this be the first and official rage thread for the week 5 failure (week 5 for CS:S anyway). Funny thing is, my power went out about 2 hours before match time, and when it came back up around 8:20, I was thanking god, only to find the CAL site down. This text contains excessive rage (CAL site went down at default match time, which will most likely cause them to reschedule ALL of the matches in ALL their division in ALL the games, probably around 5,000+ matches.)

    A very chocolatey cookie from my own "oven", may have bits of Corn in it though, enjoy...

    On Topic : May be annoying but at least it saved you from missing it eh?

    The main problem was that the site was up at 8:15, but from 8:20 to 9:00 it was down. A little suspicious how it co-incided with match time, so I suspect something a little more sinister...

    I disagree with that picture, for it imply CAL is useful for something other then pains in the ass.
    Still funny as hell though.

    Good thing the match we I was supposed to play an hour ago was a no show by the other team.

    It was probably an accident or the server's power went out or something. CAL does not fail and is not a total pain in the ass just because they may or may not have to reschedule a bunch of matches.
    no

    Can't really match CAL and Source and call it competitive. They killed competitiveness using $16k start money.

    Problem is, without the site up the other team refused to play without a working authhost. We went back to their server after it got back up, but the other team was no where to be seen.

    In that case you'll probably just resched, no big deal. Most teams probably didn't care about it though.
