great tourney. I enjoyed myself and wouldn’t mind going back for another one. Ended early (which is really good) and the location was pretty nice (PB).
My only gripe has to do with the brackets. In your 32-man double elimination bracket you have losers from the top half of the brackets feeding back into the top half in losers, losers in bottom half of brackets feeding back into the bottom half of losers. This would have it that players who played each other in the first round meet up again (if they continue to win out) 2 matches before loser semi-finals! A double-jeopardy if the winner of the first match wins again.
This should not happen, at the earliest they should meet again (if they should continue to win out) at Loser Semi-Finals.
Hopefully that didn’t happen today as it would have been unfair (to the person who would have gotten peaced out by the same damn person… and it wasn’t even semi-finals!) This also affects the rankings at the end too.
Nothing bad, just curious as to what tournament bracket programs were you guys using and if you weren’t using a program is there a chance that it was a labeling error? I’ve ran many tournaments using the same bracket format that SRK uses as well as other tournament programs that exist for sports/other games on the web and they are all the same. None of them have it where you would meet each other again until semi-finals.
Regardless, you guys ran an amazing tourney, loved being able to watch the matches on the displays. Congrats to the top 3.
Andrew: I knew when I played you, that you would go far. Sorry for the delay in our match (I brought the wrong converter) and I appreciate your patience. I want a rematch with your Chun! Good shit on winning out :tup:
Derrick: Good games! Also sorry for the delay in our game. How dare you pause during our match! J/k :lol: close second game, I felt I could have won had it not been for the pause though, but I had to go all out in the last game. Hope to play you again soon my friend.
Mark: It was a pleasure seeing you again too! I’ll definitely have to reserve (2) more SE FS for my 360. I’m investing nearly half a fucking grand for SFIV… it’s ridiculous! With all these sticks and copies of SFIV that I’m buying.
