So how does the matchups work. Do I get a rematch with Bakija?

By Peter D Bakija (Bakija) on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 03:33 pm: Edit

There is one game left--Marcus vs Mike. Whoever wins that match up will put their team at 19. Which has:

1) SWA (25)
2) Avengers (25)
3) Action Cats (21)
4) ADB (? 2 way tie for 19, I'm willing to trust Sheap's calculations)

Let's make sure the tie-breaker pans out before Marcus and Mike decide to not bother playing their game if it doesn't matter.

So the first round of finals will be:

1) SWA vs Team X (ADB)
2) Avengers vs Action Cats

The matchups are random, avoiding civil wars (so Chris doesn't have to fight Paul and Andy doesn't have to fight Gregg. Which results in a very limited number of outcomes). I'll see what happens with the last game and the tiebreakers before making the final tree (again, I totally trust Sheap's calculations--I just haven't looked at any numbers yet).

ScottishEngineer over BanTheFed in 4 Turns

Details coming, but we just finished so I wanted to get the result in case it matters.

So do we know for sure now who has advanced? Anyone done the math?

By Peter D Bakija (Bakija) on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 03:55 pm: Edit

Right, so with all games reported (a week ahead of schedule, I'll point out):

1) Team SWA: 25 points (12 tiebreaker points)
2) Team Avengers: 25 points, (6 tiebreaker points)
3) Team Action Cats!: 21 points
4) Team Alien Demon Battalion: 19 points (3 tiebreaker points)

5) Team Colorado: 19 points (1 tiebreaker point)
6) Team Deception: 17 points
6) Team The Good, The Bad, The Ugly: 17 points
6) Orion Bikini Team: 17 points
9) Team Plasma Surprise: 11 points
10) Team Spontaneous Combustion: 9 points

We have a 3 way tie for 6th place, but as it doesn't matter what order they are in, they are all in 6th place!

So unless I made a calculation error (someone please feel free to check my math):

The first final round is:

Team SWA vs Team ADB

and

Team Avengers vs Team Action Cats!

I'll post match-ups in the next couple days. As noted, the final round match ups are:

A) Random

then

B) Avoiding Civil Wars

and then

C) Avoid games that people already played (i.e. if Player X played Player Y in the round robin, I'll avoid that match up in the finals if possible; this is less important than avoiding civil wars).

By Paul Scott (The_Rock) on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 05:50 pm: Edit

With C, that means:

I play Peter, Gregg plays Andy and Brian plays Chris.

The other matches will have to use a RNG, other than Bill not playing John.

By Brian Evans (Romwe) on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 05:58 pm: Edit

Doesn't that give Gregg and Andy a civil war?

By Paul Scott (The_Rock) on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 06:00 pm: Edit

Stop that, reverse it. I am so used to seeing Chris in the LYR, I thought it was him. So Gregg v. Chris and Brian v. Andy.

By Paul Scott (The_Rock) on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 06:03 pm: Edit

And you know what, reverse my first part too, RNG still required. Gregg *is* playing Chris, but either I or Brian could play either Peter or Andy.

By Brian Evans (Romwe) on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 10:54 pm: Edit

As long as I don't have to fight another shark. Had my fill during the round robin matches.

By William T Wilson (Sheap) on Thursday, June 28, 2012 - 03:55 am: Edit

Do different models of ship from the same race count as civil wars? We have a WAX and a TFH and ADB has a Shark and a TKR.

By Peter D Bakija (Bakija) on Thursday, June 28, 2012 - 08:01 am: Edit

Yah, the Action Cats! vs Avengers will be Chris (GBS) vs Gregg (LYR) and then either Peter (GRN) vs Paul (GBS) and Andy (LYR) vs Brian (ZIN) or vice-versa. We will discover shortly.

By Peter D Bakija (Bakija) on Thursday, June 28, 2012 - 08:04 am: Edit

>>Do different models of ship from the same race count as civil wars? We have a WAX and a TFH and ADB has a Shark and a TKR.>>

Historically speaking (and I'm pretty sure my comments from the start of the tournament reflect this), I consider Romulans all the same ship (as they have plasmas and cloaks and the TKR/TFH have pretty much the same armament) for purposes of civil wars but the WAX and GBS different ships (as the WAX has option mounts and is wildly different in any case). So I'll avoid a Romulan civil war by design, but not a WAX/GBS game.

By Andrew J. Koch (Droid) on Thursday, June 28, 2012 - 08:06 am: Edit

Let Paul and Brian fight to determine who gets to play me.

By Peter D Bakija (Bakija) on Thursday, June 28, 2012 - 08:17 am: Edit

Ooh! SUDDEN DEATHS!

By Peter D Bakija (Bakija) on Friday, June 29, 2012 - 11:48 am: Edit

Ok, so now that I sat down and actually figured out the tiebreaker points, in fact Team ADB (19 points, 4 tiebreaker) is in 4th place and Colorado (19 points, 1 tiebreaker) is in 5th. Which is what we had all already figured out, but I figured I'd clarify here.

In any case, the semi-final matches are:

Team Avengers vs Team Action Cats!

and

Team SWA vs Team Alien Demon Battalion

The pairings are:

bakija (GRN) vs romwe (ZIN)
duke (GBS b1) vs Gregg (LYR)
Droid (LYR) vs The_Rock (GBS bb)

and

CrashandBurn (WAX HgDB) vs krieg (RKR)
Sheap (TFH) vs BS (KLI)
DaveC (HYD) vs Vendetta (GBS bb)

There is no huge rush to get these games done, what with it being vacation time and the PH Tournament starting soon; let's say we plan on these being done by the end of July (giving us over a month)?

I can smell what The Rock is cooking.

By Jean Sexton (Jsexton) on Friday, June 29, 2012 - 06:56 pm: Edit

Is he cooking brownies???

By Chris Proper (Duke) on Friday, June 29, 2012 - 07:00 pm: Edit

Goose.

By Paul Scott (The_Rock) on Friday, June 29, 2012 - 07:15 pm: Edit

I am a vegan, so I am certainly not cooking Goose.

Brownies are a possibility, though I usually don't bake them during the summer.

And Andrew, smell is not the relevant sense.

Do you hear that sound, Mr. Koch? It is the sound of inevitability... ;)

By Jean Sexton (Jsexton) on Friday, June 29, 2012 - 07:20 pm: Edit

I think it is nearly hot enough here for brownies to be cooked ON a rock if not BY The Rock. :)

By Andrew J. Koch (Droid) on Friday, June 29, 2012 - 08:40 pm: Edit

Come now Paul. Not inevitable. I think you have a decent chance :-)

By Chris Proper (Duke) on Friday, June 29, 2012 - 09:07 pm: Edit

A better chance than Gregg.

Err... Make that Fleet Captain Dieckhaus.

By Ken Lin (Old_School) on Wednesday, July 04, 2012 - 02:32 pm: Edit
