If you need to come to arrangements, that's fine, but WiE is under no obligation to say yes. The match has been scheduled a long time and it wouldn't be fair to force them to change it now. If they voluntarily agree to a different time, that's fine with me.
Err, let me try to make myself (and our request) clear. This is in no way "we need a new schedule, deal with it" sort of thing. And yes, the match has been scheduled a long time ago.
"If your assigned time is not acceptable, please let me or Ratbuddy know as soon as you can".
In this case "as soon as you can" happened to be kind of late - and I apologized for it.
If "We apologize for coming up with this request just days before the tournament starts. But we hope the tournament management team and WIE clan can understand this issue and meet us halfway with it" comes across as an in-your-face demand, let me re-phrase it.
We can agree to switch the dates ONLY IF it's fine by WIE folks.
Now that you say it's fine by the Tournament management and 7.[WD] who provide a server for that match - I'll try to catch Phelan Kell on TS later today and talk to him about this.
Would be better if i started by contacting WIE people first and asked what's their take on this - but I don't have the means to from my work. I've sent PK a pm though earlier today
Hope this clears things a bit.
