Re: DEAD?

Yeah... If there's something interesting to talk about, people post on here. I guess none of us have very interesting things to talk about :S

Re: 50% bonus game tickets promo

Yeah it says it's only valid for the first purchase during the campaign period.

If you're a new user, you already get this bonus. So you would then be able to get this charge bonus after signing up. (So they don't like cancel the other out)

Re: severely in need of an english translation!

"Practice" is on the left.
"Regular" is on the right.

Re: RE: A Terrible Thing

Ahhhh! That makes sense. I have one of those. And yeah I guess it would be pretty easy to at least guess what people have. But still... sometimes when you're nearing the end of the game and there really is only a few hundred or thousand points between you, it really is important to know what hand po...

Re: RE: A Terrible Thing

@Gnom - Do you have the scoring sticks visible then when you play? I've only really used the sticks with tables with the little drawers to keep them in so you can't see at a glance another player's. Where do you put them on the table?

Re: [2013.09.24] Player Quality

You should get more than catering and accommodation. I mean this is like actual days from your life or even maybe your vacation days from work, where you have to sit and listen to people winge about if it was 3 seconds or 4 seconds, and I don't know where the missing 1000 is on my calculations. It's...

Re: So Gemma, how'd you do?

Oooh! I missed this! I did VERY badly. And then I didn't play the next month so I got demoted to Silver. I probably belong in Bronze =S

It's nice to play against pros on ronron though. I realize why they're pros and I'm not.

:( You're making me sad. You should at least get a free tab at the bar...

I guess it's another item for EMA to fix... They have some busy days ahead!

Re: A question about tenpai?

You can also use the rule for continuances where you don't need to have a yaku and you only need to be tempai to your advantage. If you're dealer for example, you can do some dirty chiing and poning to get a tempai hand and keep your dealership.

Re: [2013.09.24] Player Quality

Yeah... I relied on going to a LOT of tournaments to raise my ranking (and not by being good). I'm not doing so well since I can't go to any right now. It's even worse for the refs, especially when they're missing out on a 5 MERS tournament that only come around once every two or three years...

Re: [2013.09.24] Player Quality

First of all, thanks for commenting on my article! The situation you describe is indeed insanely frustrating. I think we need to made a distinction between two types of the 'annoying' inexperienced players: 1) Those who are true learners and don't know the rules well enough to play without significa...

Re: Mahjong TV (?!) - on April 18th starting at 7:00 JST

That's a bugger... I don't think a subscription would be worth it just for the odd mahjong thing like this. Do you think people would be interested if we could get commentary in English? I'm trying to encourage the English-speaking mahjong players I know into doing something like this. I'm in Japan ...

Re: Mahjong TV (?!) - on April 18th starting at 7:00 JST

It's like on live right now... The use of the word "timeshift" is way confusing.

Plus I'm not sure if it's because I'm watching in Japan, but most of the interface is still in Japanese?
