Getting married and going offline? Big occasion!
Have a wonderful wedding @codexnewb, thanks for participating!
Apologies for the day-late posting gang, here are the new matchups!
XCAPS19 Round 4
- [XCAPS19] zhavier vs Marto
- [XCAPS19] Dreamfire : vs EricF
- [XCAPS19] bansa vs bolyarich
- [XCAPS19] CarpeGuitarrem vs Nekoatl
- [XCAPS19] Bomber678 vs James
@Shadow_Night_Black gets a bye in hopes last week’s matchup vs. EricF can be caught up to, and @charnel_mouse and I are the first to be officially eliminated (with @codexnewb conceding based on scheduling)
GL HF to all those remaining!
grats, mate. Wish you a world of luck and happiness!
@FrozenStorm I’m going to have no internet access for the next week and a half, so with 2 losses, I think I’ll just drop out too. GL HF to everyone still standing!
Sorry to hear that @Dreamfire, but appreciate the heads up
XCAPS19 Round 5
@Bomber678 was assigned the bye
GL HF ALL!
Working on winning this event with the lowest possible “stength of schedule”
@EricF I don’t think your SoS has much bearing on your known and recognized skill
Well we do kinda need @Marto to finish his games to have 100% perfect matchmaking, but I will give him until EOD before adjudicating his R4 match. In the meantime this is the most proper seeding we have
XCAPS19 Round 6
@CarpeGuitarrem was eliminated last round, and we will have at least one more elimination (potentially two) this round.
GL HF ALL!
Unfortunately I’ve been forced to eliminate @Marto on account of his absence, which gives @bolyarich a retroactive bye. Thus, we will have a rematch and an elimination match for round 7 here in what is now our final 4!
XCAPS Round 7
GL HF to all four of you!
So zhav is the only one remaining without a bye, which means our semi finals will be
GL HF you two!
Congrats to @bolyarich for finishing third! @EricF has emerged victorious in round 8, which means @zhavier and @EricF are our two finalists! You two play until someone loses two, @zhavier is P1 for the next game (I’ll make a fancier post tomorrow)
XCAPS19 Round 9
So, I was looking at my draft options, and decided tgat I could no longer operate under the constraint of not “relying on” a spec or starter that was instrumental in a previous win.
Necromany is just too nice as a support spec/counterdraft.
So, with 5 real wins, the winning choices were:
Purple + Peace
Demon + Anarchy
Black + Truth + Growth + Necro
Red + Feral
Neutral + Strength + Present
Congrats to @zhavier on his win in round 9, that puts him on match point!
XCAPS19 Round 10
That concludes XCAPS19, everyone, thanks to all who participated!
Stats for the curious:
|Starter||Count in finished games||Count in games timed out after deck picks||Total|
|Spec||Count in finished games||Count in games timed out after deck picks||Total|
Counts don’t include bolyarich starting with Feral/Green against Marto, since I only looked at matches where picks were completed. Bomber and Dreamfire predicted all of the popular picks between them, except for Truth.
