Dang cikel is going on a little bit of a run it seems (no offense but I didn't realize you were that good at dueling, I guess all that grinding in NA3 has payed off). That said, it is funny how he has (thus far) made it as far as uwu, especially when you compare the opponents they both faced.

Probably not on site, but if you're looking for a new calling in life, we're interested in very passionate people with no skills other than dealing pain too.

No skills, eh? So my no skill having ass can work find work there? How many carrots per week we talking here?

Speaking of, Pleb_Jona 7-0ed by Ogerp. Sorry for the hold up.

In Dota 2 the competitors on the "winners side" do not get any extra benefit in the grand finals. The big benefit is having to play far less elimination games if you stay in the upper bracket.

In this tournament you can have a tournament champion that wins 6 duels if he was seeded into the second round and stays winners side. On the other extreme, if a player were to be seeded into the first round and lose, drop to losers bracket, and fight their way back to the grand finals they will have had to win 11 duels, nearly twice as many fights.

Yeah, competing in fewer matches is a nice perk, however I think that a dueling-focused tournament should follow rules more in line with the FGC, since warband duels are almost a fighting game of their own. Also, while most FGC tournaments are completed in only 2-3 days, players going on a long losers run oftentimes build momentum which can help them should they make it to grands where they have to face off against a "cold" player waiting in winners... so playing more matches isn't strictly a bad thing. While momentum is far less impactful in a month-long crpg dueling tourney where you may only have one match per week, playing more matches can at least get you in a better mindset should you suffer from nerves or something.

a) -Winner of lower bracket gets third place, finals match is between top 2 upper bracket winners

b) -A Best of 3 of FT7's for the final with the winner of the upper bracket starting with a technical win regardless of whether they have fought their opponent prior to or not (this was decided based off of Tristan's suggestion, but also the notes from Nikkle and Kadeth saying that 3 FT7's would be more stamina than skill. In other words, the Winner of the upper bracket would only have to beat their opponent in ONE FT7, but the lower bracket competitor would have to beat the upper bracket competitor twice).

Option B, that's how double elimination brackets should work.

No way is Torben doing it for less than 11 schmeckles

dats a lot of dicks

No one is getting fucked by this change as far as I can tell.

The person going into grand finals from winners side has to win an extra match now, and the person coming from losers gets a freebie if they lose. In other words, there is no benefit to having no dropped sets so long as you make it to grands.

I don't exactly foresee myself being affected by this rule change, but at least for next time you should maintain a consistent ruleset and not go changing it mid-tourney.

Agree with knightmare that changing the rules is pretty not-okay, and I still don't see what you're doing here other than giving the lower bracket player an advantage since they can now lose twice and still be in the tournament. Every double elimination bracket uses the same ruleset that I just proposed, as having the winners bracket and losers bracket play a single match is unfair to the player coming from winners. Even past crpg tournaments used the bracket reset format, and even though it was my team that was blindsided by it (since it wasn't explicitly in the rules beforehand and we got fucked over due to the other team respeccing between sets) it was the proper way to run the bracket, so no hard feelings. For anyone that follows competitive games (primarily in the FGC), they know how a double elimination bracket works.

This seemingly makes it harder for the person in the upper bracket to win compared to normal double elimination rules. With regular (FGC) rules, the person on "winners side" of grand finals needs to beat the person coming from "losers side" only once, while the player already in losers needs to beat the other player once to put them into losers and "reset the bracket" and then again to eliminate them from the tournament (since it's double elimination).

With your method the winner would also have to win twice if they haven't already dueled, which puts them on even footing with the player coming from losers. Not to mention the player coming from losers would technically be "triple eliminated."
