Knock-Out Comp? For Bragging Rights

Was thinking we need to get some activity happening.

For bragging rights alone,
How's about a knockout comp, winner advanced to next round until one remains.
200 PT/1941 for duration of comp.
Where uneven numbers of players need to be pair, player with the best points for:against ratio gets a bye

Round 1:
1. Flak V Hokiepastor
2. Rav V Brigs
3. Bunyan V Fires > Pending
4. Nightfall V Au64
5. SWO Daddy V Solo > Pending
Flakstruk

Nobody?
Brigman

Well I'll play, but if it's just you and me, it's not much of a knockout competition, is it?
Flakstruk

I surrender.

Have to send some PMs
Solomiranthius

If my opponent maps, I'd be game. Smile
Brigman

Maybe we can rope SWO in?

Let's see if we can get more peeps.  Nightfall, RAEV... hell!  EVERYONE! Wink
Flakstruk

I just sent squint, Rav and Azreal a PM.

We have a confirmed list of

Flak
Brigs
Solo (unable to map)


Solo: if you've got a smart device you can map using "Picsart"
Solomiranthius

It's less the ability and more the time. Wink

I PM'd Nightfall about this, in case he missed it.

Any other folks?  We should invite, in case they don't see this post - not everyone checks every thread. Wink
Nightfall

I had not seen this. I could probably be talked into it even though I have never played an online match before.

Flak, how long do you think you want this to run?  I was thinking of kicking off the 2015 National League season sometime later in November.  We can do both of course, but I don't think we want two events running on top of each other.
hokiepastor

I'm in

200 pointers should only take a week, we've got 12 guys so a probably 3 rounds = 3 weeks with a little overlap with the start of the season
Brigman

Flak, in this event, are we supposed to represent our National or Theater league?  Or either?
Flakstruk

National

1. Flak Rolls: (1d10) 8
2. Brigs Rolls: (1d10) 9
3. Solo Rolls: (1d10) 10
4. Fires Rolls: (1d10) 1
5. SWO Rolls: (1d10) 3
6. Rav Rolls: (1d10) 4
7. Bunyan Rolls: (1d10) 10
8. Nightfall Rolls: (1d10) 1
9. Au64 Rolls: (1d10) 2
10. Hokiepastor Rolls: (1d10) 8
11.
12.

Ok, there's 2 slots left.
I'll generate play order by lowest number, then alphabetically by names.
If we don't get an extra 2, the top player in round 1 will pass straight to round 3 and that round (3) will be round Robin between the 3 guys.
Top player is calculated by(points for:points against)
Flakstruk

Round 1

1. Flak V Hokiepastor
2. Rav V Brigs
3. Bunyan V Fires
4. Nightfall V Au64
5. SWO Daddy V Solo
6. None v None (Still Open)

Game 6 will remain open until the first of the other 5 games are finished. You guys can set up threads when you ready.

Fleets are 200 points, 1941 Limited- standard 3 Objectives. Random(or agreed) maps
SWO_Daddy

Solo, I started our game here:

Sooo...I'm not in a club. It's cool that I represent the Cult of the Jet Shark, right? I mean, I am the Great White Turbine and all.

Who knows, I might like this online playing thing and actually join a club.

You know, I thought you'd joined CKM at some point in the distant past.
firesdstny

funny I thought so too...
I mean it makes sense and all...
bunyan

Ok, so for this tourney is there some sort of bracket system? Because it's called knockout so im nust wondering who I play?
Nightfall

I've helped out with CKM and Club Atlantic, but never joined because I wasn't interested in playing online games. After playing around in the Mini campaign though I decided it might be fun after all. Maybe I'll go join up somewhere...

Nightfall

Well, first online game ever and my first win. Neat! Thanks to au64 for playing, it was a great lot of fun. Ready for the next one!

*edit* Spoke too soon. After two "We thought it was over" moments...we realized we haven't gotten to points yet. Soo...yeah.

Final final total -

Here's where we stand:

Round 1:
1. Flak V Hokiepastor
2. Rav V Brigs
3. Bunyan V Fires
4. Nightfall V Au64
5. SWO Daddy V Solo > Pending
bunyan

Fire surrendered after the first two turns were completely in my favor.

Me= 112 + 100 (surface fleet destruction)
Him= 0

The enjoyment of playing my first game in over a year was ruined by the dice gods allowing me to roll so well.
au64

Anyone up for a losers bracket?

Hokie, I'd classify our current game, but honestly those Helldivers with EB2 and Shadowing bonuses are leaving me feeling like I'm cheating or something.

No, this is pickup game that we are playing on the side with no impact to the tourney you're running.  It's the first time I'm really using the Helldivers (I know shocking) to their fullest capacity and it just feels like I'm cheating.

I don't use them myself, or shadowing with RN using the is Catalina either. So no judgement here
Solomiranthius

Sorry for the slow start. My wife gave birth to our first child right around the start of this competition. Smile But I am back and ready to rock out my first match v. SWO. I went with a no-air swarm against SWO's USN, so I'll probably lose but it should be a fast loss! Very Happy Wink

So do we root for the NEW Daddy or the SWO Daddy?  May the best daddy win?
bunyan

so is round 2 going to start?

End of the week
Flakstruk

Alright,

What in going to do is give solo/SWO the bye in round 2 and set up the other 2 games. It means that of there is a draw in the round 3 they'll e one game down for the aggregate tie-breaker.

Deciding the matchups but lowest dice result first, ties decided alphabetically.

Flak Rolls: (1d10) 8
Brigs Rolls: (1d10) 9
Bunyan Rolls: (1d10) 10
Nightfall Rolls: (1d10) 1

And remember 200 points,1941 National Club Fleets Wink
Have fun
bunyan

lol Flak I guess its you vs me!  I'm still getting our custom game going but tis one is going to take priority. ill have my fleet up by tonight.
Nightfall

This ought to be fun. Bring it on Brigs old chap!
Brigman

Roger that!  I'll build a fleet!  Feel free to start a thread and roll for maps and/or weather... I can handle mapping duties sir! Smile

Already up
Solomiranthius

Narrowly pulled off a victory against SWO.
Flakstruk

Sweet, the round 2 games are still in progress, but you advance round 3 once they're done.
Round 3 players will play 2 games each, the winner is the player wins both his games or in the case of a 3way tie, the player with the best record of VPs For: Against
Solomiranthius

Can Brigs and I get underway with our match right now?
Brigman

Finished up my game with Nightfall.  Won mostly due to RPS, he played well!

So I'm playing Solo next?
Solomiranthius

I think you, me, and the winner of Flak's game each play each other. So we have two more games remaining--one being the IJN versus the rust bucket Soviets. Smile
Brigman

Well at least I don't have Yamato to terrorize you with! Wink

Go ahead and start a thread and roll for maps (and squalls if you like).  I will handle mapping, old chum. Wink

This is correct. Bunyans gone AWOL. I'll give him a couple more days otherwise I'll have to make it a forfeit
Flakstruk

With 2 of the 3 Third Round games under his by, Brigman takes the knockout comp for the IJN

A round of applause for all contestants, and a virtual bottle of Sake for Brigsy!
Brigman

BANZAI!!  *hic*
au64

Congrats Brigman!!!
