Results from Friday:
Cedric6014 b Shiver, 37
Shiver b Elerium, 34

Results from Saturday:
Angus_Thermopyle b Elerium, 65
Cedric6014 b Galactus, 53
Elvish_Pillager b Shiver 101
Shiver b Galactus, 47
Galactus b Tomsik, 28
Cedric6014 b Tiberian, 47

                             P     W       T       L         F        A      Pts
AngusThermopyle   5      4        0       1      275       52        8
Cedric6014             6      4        0       2      152     149        8
Elvish Pillager         4      3        0       1      205       71        6
Shiver                    5       3        0       2      114     138        6
Tiberian                  4      2        0       2      176       82        4
Galactus                3       1        0       2       28      100       2
Elerium                  2       0        0       2         0       98        0
Tomsik                  4       0        0       4         0      260        0

Okay, now Elerium needs to catch up.
Looks like AngusThermopyle and Cedric6014 have all but cemented play-off spots. The usual suspects Tiberian and Elvish_Pillager have some work to do.

The Kohr-Ah Cup will take an official break next Saturday while the Burvixese Bowl KO tournament is held.

Tiberian will need ot win his remaining games to make the semi-finals, while Elerium and Shiver are also in with a chance. Early days for Galactus who has only had 3 melees.

Okay, this weekend the Kohr-Ah Cup will resume. Galactus is a few games behind so hopefully he can come to the party this coming Saturday. If all goes to plan the following weekend will be the last weekend.

Okay, got four more games out of the way this weekend. The results were:
Elvish_Pillager b Galactus, 87
Elerium b Galactus, 43
Elvish_Pillager b Elerium, 58
Tiberian b Galactus, 30

So some more tight and exciting (presumably - we dont get to watch) games.

This leaves us with the below standings:

                             P     W       T       L         F        A       Pts
Elvish Pillager         6      5        0       1      350       71       10
AngusThermopyle   5      4        0       1      275       52        8
Cedric6014             6      4        0       2      152     149        8
Tiberian                  6      3        0       3      206       92        6
Elerium                  6      3        0       3      150     156        6
Shiver                    5      3        0       2      114     138        6
Galactus                6      1        0       5       28      260       2
Tomsik                  6      0        0       6         0      357        0

The remaining regular season games are:
Shiver vs Tiberian
Elerium vs Cedric6014
AngusThermopyle vs Galactus
Tomsik vs Elvish_Pillager
AngusThermopyle vs Shiver

Then it's semifinals

So its very tight going in to the last few games before playoffs. 4 combatants are vying for that last two play-off spots. It seems that the winner of the Tiberian-Shiver match will go through, and if Elerium beats Cedric6014, Cedric6014 could miss out on points differential. Elvish and Angus have secured their semis spots. Its all about pride and glory for Galactus and Tomsik. It has been a very tight league with only 2 wins breaching the 100 mark.

Anyway, We need ALL competitiors to show up next week - as we will definitely (by definitely I mean hopefully) be wrapping this baby up. Turn up early if you can, say 3.30 pm New York time. And feel free to start even if I'm not there.

Unfortunately, next Saturday is a no-go for me. I could play during the week at nights or something, but the weekend is pretty tied up for me.

Well, so I guess we delay the playoffs to another weekend. If you can get your melees vs Galactus and Shiver out of the way that would be good. Same goes for you other guys!

Request to Cedric6014:
Keep track of the match-ups for the (currently abandoned) cost balancing project. I.e.:
Player_A
*Ship_1
*Ship_2
*Ship_3
Player_B
*Ship_3
*Ship_4
*Ship_5

Fight 1) P_A's Ship_1 (100% crew) beats P_B's Ship_4 (100% crew), 25% crew remaining (use only 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%, by approximating, it's exact enough)
Fight 2) P_B's Ship_4 (100% crew) beats P_A's Ship_1 (25% crew), 50% crew remaining
...

(Or better yet, record the melees; Justice had a .png-dumping patch, but, alas, he doesn't seem to be around anymore... I've PM-ed him some months ago and I hadn't heard from him since.)

This is, after all, in order to increase the tournament's fairness and fun! It's a noble goal!

Hmm, I would need to ask the participants to write these details down battle by battle. It would be a bit of a chore and we'd have to do it for a lot of games to make it worth while. I can but ask

You can use VidShot (http://www.dirfile.com/vidshot_capturer.htm) to capture videos. It's freeware.
This is the way to use it for capturing Melees:

A) First indicate where the video should be saved by using the "..." button. Hint: Use your nickname in the name, otherwise no one will know who recorded the video, specify your opponent and whether you play the bottom or the top side.
B) 1) If you run UQM in a window:
       - Check the "Window" radio button
       - Drag the "Select window" button to the UQM window
       - When starting the battle, press Start in VidShot to start recording. When the tournament has finished, press F9 to stop recording. NOTE: VidShot automatically minimizes while recording.
     2) If you run UQM fullscreen:
       - Check the "Desktop" radio button
       - Before starting UQM, press Start in VidShot to start recording. When the tournament has finished, press F9 to stop recording. NOTE: I don't think anyone netplays in fullscreen.
C) Wait for the video to build, then host it somewhere, for example on www.savefile.com.

Anyway, I dont know if anyone turned up Saturday - I know I didn't. sorry about that! Important stuff came up. I can tell you that I'll be there next Saturday for sure and I hope everyon else can make it so we can close this thing. Its getting really exciting, even if its getting exciting too slowly.

Three results since last week:
AngusThermopyle b Galactus, 61
Tiberian b Shiver, 84
AngusThermopyle b Shiver, 89

table now reads:

                            P     W       T       L         F        A       Pts
AngusThermopyle   7      6        0       1      427       52        12
Elvish Pillager         6      5        0       1      350       71       10
Tiberian                  7      4        0       3      290       92        8
Cedric6014             6      4        0       2      152     149        8
Elerium                  6      3        0       3      150     156        6
Shiver                    7      3        0       4      114     297         6
Galactus                7      1        0       6       28      321        2
Tomsik                  6      0        0       6          0     357        0

Remaining games are:
Elerium vs Cedric6014
Tomsik vs Elvish_Pillager
Semifinal 1 (1 vs 4)
Semifinal 2 (2 vs 3)
Kohr-Ah Cup Final

Yikes, my melee with Elerium is effectively a quarterfinal.

Well, we still didn’t quite finish this off – we persist on drawing out the tension.

Results:
Elerium b Cedric6014, 10 (one lousy Ilwrath!)
Elvish_Pillager b Tomsik, 169

This is how the table ended up:

                           P     W       T       L         F        A       Pts
Elvish Pillager         7      6        0       1      519       71       12
AngusThermopyle   7      6        0       1      427       52        12
Tiberian                  7      4        0       3      290       92        8
Elerium                  7      4        0       3      160     156        8
Cedric6014             7      4        0       3      152     159        8
Shiver                    7      3        0       4      114     297         6
Galactus                7      1        0       6       28      321        2
Tomsik                  7      0        0       7          0     526        0

So I miss out by 11 in points differential dang it all

We now have our four semi-finalists.

Elerium will play  Elvish_Pillager
AngusThermopyle will play Tiberian

Now, I’m REALLY hoping the we can get the semis and final out of the way before the weekend. Actually right NOW would be a good time, even though I cant access IRC from work.

EDIT: Semifinal draw altered - see below

Hey! You can't just abandon a game, especially not without the consent of the players!

Tomsik and I played our tournament game today. I destroyed him by 169 points.

Okay, I’ll accept that result as there is no official binding schedule for this league and players appear to be of the understanding that games can be played on an ad-hoc basis.

Behind the original logic for abandoning the game was a desire to wrap up the tournament as soon as possible. Since Tomsik and Elvish_Pillager have played their game, the progression of the tournament is not compromised.

That means that Elvish_Pillager will shoot to top spot on points difference will play Elerum in one semi-final. Angus will play Tiberium in the other.

In future there will be a stricter schedule, and defaults or abandonments will be enforced.

Cheerio!

Uhh, above it says 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3. Is that still in effect?

Right now, you have 1 vs 3 and 2 vs 4.

Anyways, whoever I play, it'll have be before Thursday. Otherwise, it has to wait 'till next week.

Edit: Nevermind. I see now that 3 & 4 should be swapped on the table, based on points.
