Watch the playback; that game was very close. If you had been more aggressive and just fired everything off early you would have won. Cake sent his subs halfway around the world when he didn't have timer. It was actually pretty funny. If, towards the end of the game, one of his carriers had run over your subs earlier in the mid-Atlantic he would have triggered timer and lost. You racked up a bunch of points then danced around in the Atlantic, gradually lost your fleet, and let him get where he wanted to go. I'm not one to talk, since it's the exact sort of thing I would do, just that you're going to do well in this tourney.

I've had a sore neck and shoulders after all my games so far. Stress makes for the best defcon!

It's certainly no shame losing to Cake, but the tourney 1v1s just go on too long and are too much. ARGHHH. In the later stages, people will be going all round the world for multiple refills.

I will stay in to not spoil the tourney but I refuse to enjoy it. :p

is the tourney server opened for normal games?
i am wondering about all the normal games already played there.
also we had to play a tourney game on dedcon test duel server.
i really hope the settings are or were all okay there.

The passworded Dedcon Test Duel is ok; it has no time budget and is default. The non-passworded server is not. Be warned, unless admin is around, no pause on either.

I'm told that discretion is the better part of valor. Therefore, cowardice is the better part of discretion. With that in mind, lemme know when you want to play. I'm UTC-7, and I work during normal business hours in the US.

Hey Kudayta, the game you're playing with Korean right now should probably be on the tourney server, not 1v1 random...

R3D, can you change 'Noryb' to 'Byron' on the first post next time you edit it? Thanks.

Yeah, I guess it should have been. Oh well, not a big deal I suppose.

Stats based on posted games:

Image

I don't really understand how round 2 will work, but I think those in 3rd and 4th positions from each group drop out? 1st and 2nd place move on...?

Also, 6 games for a player means you're done with round 1, which means I finished 1st. :P

Note: I ranked players by win ratio, then points, then kills. That is why I have more points but am below Byron. Round 1 is still ongoing, therefore Byron could/should end up in 1st for Group C.
