Re: 'Tavern Drunks' casual tourney clan

Thanks for a fun tournament, Tavern Drunks. We did pretty ok for a casual clan in the end, I think -- I did manage a couple of lucky starts that lead to fun wins for me, while some of you were consistently winning. I'm always just a little bummed by the end of the tournament -- it certainly adds a l...

Anyone looking for a clan member who is distinctly average (I play as strat on CBRO, generally -- usually win 3-4 games/tourney), I'm in. For whatever reason, I find being in a clan, even when I don't know the others, adds to the tourney feel for me (gives me other games to care about, I guess).
