i was thinking of something similar. i'm not even that far away, i'm just chronologically retarded. and geographically so as well, so i'm double scrizzewed. dawg.
but um, for the 5 of 7 events specifically, i was thinking of having some kind of in-game tracker set up? showing you how much time is left, and how many out of the (5)7 matches you've completed already, and perhaps even when the next duel that will actually count towards the total can be played. i know i'm asking for quite a bit considering...i just think it'd be helpful. not to the game necessarily, just me. i'm greedy.
Tactics is knowing what to do when there is something to do. Strategy is knowing what to do when there is nothing to do.
