I'm glad you pointed that out.
I never confirmed or signed up for BW3, I didnt have the time, or money for the game at that time. But I know plenty of dragons who started TRAINING for that game months in advance, and I know how disappointed they were when the game was canceled as they had started making $$ investments in gear and equipment for that event.
Flakers just dont cause the host(s) financial issues when they screw over a game, they screw over the other players too. This is why so many of us are fed up with the kraken ticklers and the folks who just treat large scale events like just another skirmish day. If you cannot confirm in 100% barring injury, medical or family emergency dont sign up.
