    What do you mean "It is the fact that all these selection events were tainted with malfunctions, luck or bad luck, that nothing was fair"? All. Really??? What a load of bull! For the first 6 or 7 days everything worked fine. The glitches started happening after that initial 6 or 7 days. By then most of the top players had already played their initial 33 races and were already at the top of the leader-board. The last few days when the glitches were happening players were trying to improve and maintain their position on the leader-board. When I look at the final score-board I do not see your boat 'FRA47' even in the top 50. So, either after your initial 33 races your score wasn't high enough to work your way up to be in the finals anyway, or, maybe you were waiting to race your 33 races towards the end when the competition might not be so tough, in which case you don't trust your ability and made a decision that back-fired. Bad luck buddy, but it was your strategy, and it didn't pay off. And what do you mean "In this case I am waiting for the selected ones to relay the voice of those who have been harmed by their chances."? What do you want them to say, "sorry for beating you when the game had glitches that we all experienced." If you were 6th, and close to 5th, and the organizers only took the first five, then you might have something to complain about. But mate, your not even in the top 50, so as I said before either you were never going to make it, or you made a bad tactical decision to race at the end in an effort to gain an advantage, and it back-fired. It is not the responsibility of the players/winners to apologize for the problems in the game. That is the responsibility of 'VR Inshore', the owners of the game, and I think most players are disappointed that they didn't give any information or apology for the glitch.

    Why are you trying to throw a dark shadow on other peoples happiness? Don't be such a poor loser. I think anyone who plays the game regularly will agree that the players named in the finals, so far, all deserve to be there. If the playoffs had been "unfair, discriminating and shameful", as you suggested, then players that are not the top players would be on the list of finalists. None of us liked the glitches in the game during the playoffs, but it was happening to all of us. To try to take away some of the glory and happiness of the people who made the final, that is what is shameful. Learn to celebrate other peoples good fortune, not just your own, and you will become a much happier and liked person.

    Fucking fucking fucking shit

    That is so cool Cruzolator. You deserve a place in the finals. These finals are going to be great to watch :) Did allesandro get an invite as well? He also deserves a place in the finals. And a big thumbs up to VR, that is a great decision guys. By the way, I think the game is working really well. I haven't had any glitches for ages 😎🌈 Steve_NZ777

    Yeah, I think you both deserve an invite :) Instead of 5 guys and 5 girls, maybe they should just take the top ten qualifiers. It's not like gender gives anyone an advantage or disadvantage playing this game. Steve_NZ777

    Congrats

    Hello Velista71 Well done and have a great time in Saratosa. Many of us that didn't get into the final will be watching you guys (and girls) race off. Good luck :)

    Congrats

    Yes Allesandro, I picked you to be one of the finalists as you win most of your races. Bad luck not getting in, but as you said, your strategy of waiting until the end didn't pay off this time. The glitch may have made the difference to being a finalist or not, we will never know. Looking at the boats that appear to have qualified, they are all deserving winners as they are all in the group of top players, and if you were in that group of finalists you, would be deserving to be there also. There is always next year 😎 Steve_NZ777

    Congrats

    That's great! What a cool prize! I didn't see that news, I just saw that the finalists would race off in Saratosa. What a buzz you guys and girls are going to have :) Congrats again :)

    Great! Does that mean VR are going to fly you to Sarasota?

    Hi Cruzolator I think we all understand your moment of harsh expression towards the server problem :) Steve_NZ777

    Congrats

    Yeah, congratulations to those who made it. Looking at the names, they all deserve to be there, so it has all worked out in the end, bugs or no bugs. LaMerNoire and Epicure, I don't know how you do it. You are so consistent. I'm fairly new to this game as I just started playing in July this year and I often watch you guys and the other top racers in spectator mode to get clues as to how you do it. You guys make it look so easy sometimes :) Anyways, good luck to all the finalists, and I'm really looking forward to watching the top dogs race it out 😃 Steve_NZ777
