if you disconnect why would you register for an Event?
The most fair way would be to register for an event imo.
PvP Events are NEVER easy to host always complains, problems, connections, this and that...so they take a lot of time to host.but we make them
But yes,i do think first pm is not rly fair due to lag-possible complications.
I agree the pm first on undefeated champion is a bit annoying. Perhaps it could be restructured a little bit? My suggestion would be:GM picks a number between 0 and 100. After announcement each player pm's the GM with a random number between 0 and 100 and whoever is closest / guesses it first gets to go. That way ping is no issue & you can still quickly select an opponent out of a group of pm's. That being said, hosting events is a lot of work and I appreciate the GM's putting time, efford and patience into it.
