Blah, I completely understand. I don't like it if only because of the... concept of being completely locked out of a game. I really wish a rule was enacted that you get to decide going first or second after you flip your Active. Otherwise you might literally get locked out of the rest of the match and it's dumb.
Hey Blah! I think you may be interested in the Forum Game The Challenge, which is currently being hosted by Celever and myself. We're still looking for sign ups to start the game, so you playing would be awesome! Link
