[Tournament] Experimental Codex Asynchronous Fall Swiss (XCAFS22)

@dwarddd, are you able to get your match started?

I am extremely sorry, I am wayyy busier this term than i expected and won’t be able to make time for this. Very sorry @Whitspurr , at least there was an even number of players so it’s just as if you had a bye?

Enjoy, guys!

No worries, dwarddd, thanks for letting us know! Whitspurr is on bye, and I’ll shuffle the deck matchup back into the pool.

I’ll delay round 2 to Monday, to give people more time to finish. Looks like it’s been a busy week for several of us!

OK, I think I’ve generated this correctly this time… Have fun, all!

Hi all, Whitspurr has had to drop out, due to time issues. Thanks for playing, Whitspurr!

Since that puts the number of matches in a round so low, I’m trying to leave the remaining match a little longer, so it doesn’t skew the matchmaking so much.

OK, it looks like all the matches are finished, one way or another, so it’s time for

@charnel_mouse Do you have any statistics on how the various specs are doing so far? It feels like Blue is getting surprisingly good results.

Well, except for a blue starter mirror match of frozen against mouse all games with blue starter were as P1, if I’m not mistaken. I don’t mind at all to play blue as P1, but as P2 it’s a completely different story, I think…

And yes, I think blue P1 won all games.

I’ve got nothing at the moment, I’ve been a bit swamped at work. I’ll see whether I can put something together at the end.

Am I continuing to run the gauntlet next round @charnel_mouse or am I on the bye?

I’m drawing up the next round tomorrow.

yeah, it should be you, Frozen, to be the first one to get a second bye. It can’t be me as the algorithm tries to smooth out the number of P1/P2 appearances for each player. Both you and Dreamfire have played one more time as P2 compared to P1, so in case I get the bye, one of you is going to have an unbalanced P1/P2 ratio which doesn’t kick in, if I’m not getting the bye. And if Dreamfire gets the bye, there’s going to be a direct rematch, which is also to be prevented from the algorithm. The other penalty values the algorithm considers will not change that result.
Hence your place in the FINALS is already set, congratulations. It’s well deserved after your comeback from being on elimination longer than Dreamfire and myself.

Quite so.

Round 9

  1. [XCAFS22] Round9: P1 Dreamfire [Peace]/Blood/Future vs P2 zango [Bashing]/Necromancy/Past

FrozenStorm gets the bye.
Everyone is at elimination, so this is the semifinal.
Remember, you can appeal for a different deck matchup if you think your assigned one is too lopsided.
