Fuck the WPM guideline.
The Tournament failed largely because of -
Me. I'm the principle reason it failed. I'm always in over my head. The first round and the preliminary round went incredibly smooth, actually, but once the second round hit, my judges started dropping like flies. Things came up for some of 'em, and that was that. Also, someone no-showed their match and I gave 'em another chance (Sparty, where are ye?). He still didn't show, so I said fuck it. Unfortunately, only one Judge gave me their scores. The rest were too busy, and I didn't have the gall to ask anyone else to help me, so I was swamped.
Unfortunately, I'm the type of person who never likes to ask for help on anything. So, I thought I was up to it, then my erratic tendencies started to come back up again, and I vanished. I will admit - sometimes, the drama did get to me, so I said "fuck it." I came back, said I was gonna run it again. Lo and behold, I don't. From now on, don't count on me for anything. Learn your lessons, as I've learned mine.
