    Did Chen and Toasty fight, or Nerd and Terrendos? If so, I didn't see the results to those matches.

    Jayson? Battle? We could use entire times of UU/BL! (I actually prefer those sorta matchups.)

    You're waiting on round 6, I thought? Was the bye you had to give in round one the only loss you had? I was sure there was a shock loss involving you, though.

    Well, I will go ahead and update as though Kay won. If Aggril has a problem with it, she can send me twenty dollars and I will put it back!

    I'm not sure how it happened, but I got to round 5 despite the shenanigans involving round 1. I've had to play against 4 people for the tourney, and my last match was in round 4, so...I guess the round 1 bye didn't count?

    Oh god, my perfect scorekeeping! I am reviewing your battling history, mister!

    So far it's a (default) loss against toasty, and rockinx. Win against jaysonfour.

    Then in round four you were up against rayvnblackheart, terrendos, nerdgasmic, or aggril. I am still trying to figure it out.

    Yes, I see that match took place. However munkus has been scheduled to fight many people so who knows who else he fought.

    And now I am seeing a point where munkus was up against kay for round 3. Mystery of mysteries.

    Ok, now I have this:
    I beat Jayson and Nerd you git.

    This happened before round 4. So, munkus may have fought round 3 twice. I have a feeling that munkus beat nerd in a non-official match and got confused. His post up there is from when I just started keeping track of score, and speed and I just took him at his word that he had won twice.

    Munkus was up against me in round 4, but then Speed jiggled things around when he noticed that some people were playing each other again, and made it so that I was fighting the winner of Aggril vs Munkus, as far as I'm aware? I forget. It's a bit of a mess!

    I fought the people only when told to fight them. Jayson said I was his match for the round, I played him. I was told to fight nerd, so I did. I may have fought twice in a round, that seems not only plausible but likely, but it's not because of my own mistake.

    Regardless, I've won 3 matches under tourney conditions and with the same stress and pressure that a person would feel in a regular match.

    You can trace it back further, at this point the only person that I wasn't told to fight from a third person was jayson, I think. I think Jayson came up to me and said "Hey, you're the guy I'm supposed to fight this round," so I took him at his word. I had no reason not to!

    Maybe Munkus' round -four- fight was Nerd, then his round five fight (which was Aggril's round four) was against Aggril? That'd explain why he's had four battles, and his initial bye.

  • BlueBlueBlueBlue Registered User regular
    edited October 2008
    Yes I think this is the case. Somewhere along the line speed reshufled Munkus into round 4 vs kay, which got changed to vs dingus vs aggril.
    Probably his last match should have been vs. zerokku.
    Well anyway! Welcome to 3/5, munkus.

    This is why I say we should just give a loss to people who haven't taken round 5 battles yet. If we can just get one more round then the final four can have their rounds quickly (since they are people who are actually around).

    Well, that would have been a little unfair on me, Ashton, 'cause I was waiting on a battle result (which happened on Sunday? Monday?) before I could engage in my round 5 battle!

    Last call before bed. Anyone want a battle with UU/BL Pokémon? The OU Tournament stuff is making me long for the old days again.

    I didn't show up for my match due to lack of effort! Why should I be punished because my misfortune was earlier in the tourney rather than later? Had I lost my game on thursday then I would have been in the clear despite exceeding the stated limits, I'd still be able to play my match.

    I was still putting forth a good faith effort to get my match done. Furthermore, in the overall time period of the tourney I have gotten the same amount of matches done in the same amount of rounds. 4 matches, 4 rounds. We're doing this for fun and games, there isn't much harm in letting me have the points that I earned in four rounds as if I had played in four rounds.

    Finally, you want to claim that I should incur a penalty, despite my good faith effort, in order to encourage people to get their matches done in time. I say that I should not incur a penalty in order to encourage a clarity in the match-ups.

    I am not the one who distributes points! I am tabulating the results for all the matches you have participated in.
    Round 1 -
    Munkus didn't do his battle in time so Toasty got the win.
    Round 2 - RockinX (loss)
    Round 3 - JaysonFour (win)
    Round 4 - Nerdgasmic (win)
    Round 5 - Aggril (win)

    It seems like if you wanted your first loss to not count you should have brought it up at that time? If you really think you don't deserve a loss for being unable to find your cartridge in the time between when you signed up and the past-deadline of round 2 then I guess you can petition speed to actually fight your round 1 match and see how it goes.

    Also I do not understand this jank about clarity in the matchups, since things work out much better this way.

    And if you take over, you would be the one distributing points!

    I am just looking at what is most fair. Since we are here under the premise of friendly competition, I don't see the harm in erring on the side that most rewards people for their efforts. I tried to get my games done in time and got 4 matches done in 4 rounds. Toasty reasonably tried to get a match done in round 1. It wouldn't be a disservice and to allow both to pass favoring the participants, they are not mutually exclusive benefits!

    ROUND 6
    Jugs vs. Winner of (Chen vs. Toasty)

    RMD vs. DX

    InvisibleInk vs. BlueBlue

    AshtonDragon vs. Kay

    Munkus Beaver vs. (Loser of Chen vs. Toasty)

    Zerokku, who got an extra point because he's the only one that hasn't finished Round 5 to my knowledge that still has a shot at winning, vs. Speed Racer, who does NOT have a shot at winning!

    And I'm so mixed up that I'm not going to risk further complications by making pairings for people that don't have a shot anymore.

    If you have 5 points or more, you're a lock for the final four. Everyone that finishes with 4 points are going to have to have a little qualifier round to figure out who the other two finalists will be.
