Disagree! Part of the appeal of this game for me is the way you are 'dealt a hand' and have to make the best of it. Sure, sometimes a map or unit distribution goes against you... but equally often, it goes for you. I don't mind abandoning matches in exceptional circumstances but not just because one player has a starting advantage.
The most satisfying wins are the ones against all odds.

This exactly describes me too

Same, apart from this forum. Would you consider organising the tournament exclusively through this forum? I'm not keen on signing up to more things unless absolutely necessary.
It looks like most of us are on the same page about these things, thanks for setting it up! I reiterate, I'm definitely keen to play but won't be able to with a 24-hour limit on matches for reasons mentioned above.
