Yeah, I guess you are, especially since gavin launched this AFTER the invites for the community cup were sent.
Quote from Uly Van HammerI meant next year.. If he "makes" a grassroots format within the next year, he will be looking pretty good. I can tell when people really want to work for Wizards. Not that it's a bad thing to have aspirations or goals, I just dont have any time for my own so people that are trying just look like they are show boating to me.
I do not personally know Mr. Verhey, so I cannot speak to his integrity or honor in creating this format and trying to spearhead it. I can, however, speak for myself as an advocate of the format. I have been advocating for Overextended since the rumor first arose last summer (July 2010, I believe). While there might be some people who are showboating in trying to get on board/get noticed by Wizards (maybe this is Mr. Verhey and maybe this is not), there are DEFINITELY players like myself who don't give a darn about that.
We just want Overextended to exist because the format is fun, accessible, new, and innovative. I would be willing to bet that Mr. Verhey is one such player. Even if he is not, there is no reason to cast suspicion at those who want to work alongside him to make the format a reality. Some of us are genuine about this business.
