I think your engine has no fans or sponsors so who cares accept yourself of course.
Even attended wccc as a spectator twice. Message was: "go home for you are twenty years too late.
And please don't bother the operators or people that have to publish about the event".
But I should be glad I did not have to pay an entrance fee.

That's horrible to hear, its been a life dream to go to a WCCC event, ever since Paderborn in '99. Wonder why someone would act like that? Always had the impression, one of the best things about the event was getting to meet with people and bond over a mutual love for the sport and hobby.

Might be because I visited them at the end of the tournament and they were tired or too busy with the games.
Maybe when you are a spectator you can only talk to other spectators when not hindering operators.
