So, this is going to be a little scattered, but there are a bunch of things to discuss and not necessarily an exact order to how my minds wishes to think about it.
But first things first, welcome to the XWA, I am Swift, one of the booking team members.
So here we are. I'm posting everything in case somebody decides to randomly delete what was already said in that topic.
Thank you for this, makes it easier on me. It has to do with organization, and to prevent confusion in the future, I will return to locking the card posts. While I am on the topic of thanking you...
Additionally, last I checked, it's "Jobberton" and I was referred to as "SShade".
Thank you for pointing my mistakes out, they are fixed. I am not on my usual computer due to visiting family, so a lot of the stuff I use to help me proofread isn't available to me and it has honestly never been my strongest point even with technology. I am always appreciative of people pointing out my mistakes so I can fix them.
Now, onto the core of your grievance...
Why'd I get a jobber match?
So, there are a couple of reasons, one of which you correctly deduced, I do tend to send new members against a jobber for their first match unless there is a double debut. It does a number of things, as while I've slowed down on voting and critiquing, I do read and mentally evaluate every match. Another reason was brought up by AJ, being the amount of available people and I don't like to assume that people out of the tournament want to contribute more matches as a lot of people in the tournament are guests. However, another reasons ties into the next point brought up...
My question is why is Ace Andrews in a LotR match, which mentions him winning his round 1 match, when that was a double no-show?
As a booker and person, I am pretty big on transparency, especially when people ask a question. What this comes down to is a miscommunication between me and other members of the team. In trying to keep members of the team informed with what I was doing, some wires got crossed, some things got put up that I wasn't expecting, and rather than bother someone on their break for actual fed work, I decided to roll with the punches and work with what I was given. It happens, and I understand your frustration. If you would like me to promise a critique on your match I can promise that, and I can promise to do a better job of getting a flesh and blood person for the next one.
