Mah Jong Time

These are really bad news. I like to play at Mah Jong Time for a long time and I also plaid a lot of tournaments there. Last year I've got an invitation to Macau including all for free and it was a grandiose adventure. I know Slava personally and I wish him and his team the very best and hope Mah Jong Time will excist for a long time.

We regret the way things turned out, but only MJT can give answers. I agree that if MJT doesn't make it, this is a bad thing for mahjong in general, but perhaps there are lessons to be learned here as well.

To Otto: you may notice that the website of MJT was last updated around the end of August, so don't look for any news there. The fact that the site is outdated (as is the ranking) and that the foreseen update to the interface is delayed, doesn't promiss a lot of good...

Dear All,
I read alot here now and I see that why only make mjt to sponsor? Only one time or two times last minute cancellation and everyone jump off? Isn't this very unfair?

Perhaps, all the mahjong clubs should chip-in to help to organise such tournaments rather just point fingers to anyone who just did not make something happens.

I really hope mjt could be as aggressive as before again. GOOD LUCK!!! MJT!!!!
