Man! It would be awesome if I could claim for my own the victories of some of the Defcon players I gave pointers to.

Yeah it's awesome Xocrates, you should try it sometime, and btw I'm still better or atleast equel to Myst even tho I lack practice, you shouold ask Myst she'll confirm this.
Anyway since I know Myst will read this, Grats Myst and you too Bert, nice to be 2nd ain't it? :)

It does, provided the players in question actually play against each other every once in a while. Which you two do, and with Myst winning more often recently. Raw data speaks more than player statements.

Let's see, xander vs. Cyan is 6:5 currently, xander vs. Myst 8:3. You won your last two games against him, Myst her last three. While those recent successes do stand for something, they aren't yet statistically relevant in the grand scheme of things, and if anything, they say that xander is getting out of shape lately.

haha, well there are a lot of factors in play, like wich maps wich modes wich starting position disconnects, etc. etc. crates not to mention, anyways I know I am better then xander and I know I am equally good as Myst to say the least, also Myst is beter then xander, clearly and most of the games player against xander by us 2 are blitz and some dom, wich Myst, playing all modes, is still able to win.

Hard data can be very misleading, that's why the mossad is so great, since it relies hugely on humint. So get yur facts right...

Since my opinion in this case is biased in multiple ways I will refrain from making any other statement than "you're in the wrong topic". Please keep discussion about the Ladder itself (which includes its fairness) in here, this topic is intended for tournament-related discussions.

You're a funny man :) Anyway, I agree with Jelco, this is totally the wrong topic. Cheer for cheesemoo0 or tiro, congratulate Myst again, but if you want to bath in imagined ubergreatness, start a new topic for that. Thinking again, I'll do that for you.

Congrats to tiro for winning.

I suppose that's what I get for not playing for months. :P

Congrats to Myst, bert and tiro! :)

It was a fun tournament, I was surprised to get that far.

tiro plays really well for his position in the ladder. Sorry, cheesemoo0, but I was rooting for him. :P

My thoughts on the ideal tournament

Postby tiro » Fri Jul 03, 2009 10:33 pm

I would like to see the following players play in a tournament with a group stage (two groups of four):
Myst, Adub, MadMorgan, Wingman317, Cyan, fonzor, xander. The eighth place contestant should be the winner of a play-in game between bert and tortisvektor.

With a smaller group, you could have a different tournament structure.
How about a swiss-style pairing tournament? Everyone plays people with the same number of wins, during a fixed number of rounds? Maybe even round robin.

A good suggestion.

I think future tournaments should use structures intended to minimize the number of games played. That would minimize the effect of skipped/unplayed games on the end result.

If any of those who're prize worthy are mulling over commission options to work out if that's the prize they want, feel free to contact me, either by PM or by the crazy forum email thing.

Congratulations to the winners, and commiserations to cheesemoo0 for not getting anything cool.

Grats Myst, you deserve 1st. :wink:

Tiro, oooo, I like that lineup! Can it be all 3p and 4p CTS? :twisted:
