Tournament Update


Round of 32 Recap

The round of 32 is all but finished, and for the most part, the legends of legacy (re)asserted their dominance. Tournament host Kaiserklein took down Oliveza 3-0, Samwise took down everyone's favorite content creator GUA 3-0, Mitoe smacked up his fellow NA lad woodpusher, tabben returned to dab on Kaister 3-0, iamturk cleaned up minimoult 3-0, Prince from Finland (not Kabul) sending Yukietty home 3-0, and knusch only gave up 1 game against harcha. The big upsets of the round were Lavendar absolutely steeping over the semiFF secretary Guigs, theonlybaus showing his vanilla prowess and taking down Aizamk. miggo taking down BIG Soldier 3-2 and April taking Lukas back down to wolfgang.weiss level. In other games, Kevin shocked with a 3-0 of Opti, Kawapasaka sent somp home 3-0, Tit took out strategic god Don Artie 3-1, and Ezad survived a scare from Jerimuno 3-2. The big question, Where o' Where has Haitch gone? The number one seed and tourney favorite, Haitch, forfeited in round 1 being replaced by Yurashic who 3-1'd daddy sheck.


Round of 16 Preview


Looking forward to the round of 16, there are several intriguing matchups. Samwise getting a new test against Kawapasaka who will be looking to bring vengeance for GUA. Lavendar will try to keep his upset string rolling against Ezad. Kaiserklein will hope to take the semi-FF banner against Tit while Mitoe takes on miggo. In a battle of French and German matchups, baus will try to take out Prince. Tabben will try to continue dabben against Yurashic, Kevinitalien and knusch will face off, and iamturk will face off with April.

As games are scheduled to be streamed check back for the latest schedule which will be posted here.

Maybe he is tired of dominating and wants to have a competitive tourney?

I mean this is probably the most competitive one in long time. Not sure how more competitive it can get with active players we have.

If that was the case he'd just play this out, as by his definition this tourney is pretty competitive. Stacked brackets, free win civs aren't allowed, and he likes the civ rules and maps.
He's just tired of playing DE, at least when it comes to sup.

@tabben @theonlybaus @knusch @samwise12 @Mitoe @Miyawaki Sakura @Lavendar

Hey guys, 2 quick reminders
- I realized the rules link in the scheduling threads is wrong, my bad. For the record, starting in this round, ONE civ can be played a second time in a series.
- I thought it's obvious that no record games nor results should be shared before the series are actually casted, but apparently it's not. Next time someone leaks any sort of result, I'm cutting some of the prize money.

People gave you that money with the intention that it was going to go towards the prize pool for this tournament. Pretty shitty to arbitrarily take that away(potentially).

People donated that money with the intention to watch casted tournament games without already knowing the result.

Also tell me how I prevent people from spoiling results, if not by applying that kind of pressure. It's the second time already that I hear about the result of a tourney series before I (the tourney admin) even get the recs by PM. I mean they don't bother sending me the recs while actually sharing them with mates ?

For the record I'm not saying the prize pool will be smaller lol. I'm saying some people might get less % of it than they would it they didn't spoil.

@Kaiserklein Can you please upload the series from the quarter finals on youtube? Some super high quality games should be up to see on youtube, otherwise they will be lost :(

You know, you are just inviting the "take me back to school" vibes with these kind of posts. Ngl

There are plenty of other ways that make more sense, such as making someone start at a map disadvantage or disqualification. Anyway, I misunderstood, as long as the total prize pool is the same and it’s just distribution that changes that’s not a big deal.

Yeah, I realized later that my post could be interpreted as in the global prizepool would be smaller, but of course that's not what I meant

Nah for now I'm just highlighting the videos on twitch, don't have the time for youtube. No series is lost, it will all be on youtube eventually.

Ι hope they will be because I think after some time twitch deletes the broadcasted videos, it would be a shame to lose some of these awesome games.

If he saves them on twitch, they are never deleted.
