[Tournament] eXperimental Codex Asynchronous Fall Round Robin 2021 (XCAFRR21): Mono Color Six Shooter!

Yes please, gives you a place to coordinate expected start time and cadence, lets me know you’re on top of your games :slight_smile:

Reminder to everyone you should be finished with your Pod 1 matches and starting your Pod 2 matches to keep pace of play.

@Juan_Enriquez we need you to come back or let folks know you’re unable to continue. I will have to adjudicate by next week if we don’t hear anything.

If that happens, I’ll be in a group against just FrozenStorm and zhavier :cold_sweat:

That is accurate and would be unfortunate, given the other group had 5

The groups are somewhat irrelevant, we could reorganize due to drop outs.

If you have a clear path forward to re-organize that in an equitable way I’m all ears, I don’t really have the time to work out how that would work

Juan’s games are turn-balanced in each pod, so we could squash the involved games together to make sure we still get to play all six colours. That does give us a lot to do.

@charnel_mouse @zhavier if we don’t hear from @Juan_Enriquez in the next 24 hours, I will throw out Juan’s games & rematch the three of us to get us to 6 games each. It’ll be a little shuffling but we can manage it

Okay here’s a re-roll of Group B’s Juan matches between the three of us:

Group B Pod 4

  1. [XCAFRR21] Pod4 zhavier [Truth/Peace]/Finesse vs FrozenStorm Purple
  2. [XCAFRR21] Pod4 FrozenStorm Red vs charnel_mouse Black
  3. [XCAFRR21] Pod4 charnel_mouse White vs zhavier White

this should still give us games on all six decks, LMK if I made a mistake though!

In terms of seeding the next round, I’m open to either

  1. keeping it two players from each group, or
  2. Taking the #2 from Group B and the #3 from Group C and having a play-in game

So it isn’t just “well group B had three players, not fair two went to finals”

LMK your thoughts

I’m the newbie, so I might miss a point here, but I don’t think it’s likely that group B second place will end up with only two victories. And I think in group A four victories are enough to be qualified. So all comes down to “are you qualified after scoring three victories?”
In group B that’s definitely the case, in group A it might not be the case.
How about doing this play-in game only exactly if those two both have the same number of victories?

And if you choose to do it differently: I’m perfectly fine with that, sometimes life is just not fair and we definitely are not in a situation where you can achieve fairness as doing a play-in is unfair for the one finishing in second in group B, not doing a play-in might come with an unfair feeling for others…

Friendly reminder to everyone that you should be wrapped on your Pod2 games and starting your Pod3 games! Pace of play has generally been good, keep it up!
