Pillow Fight! - Super Melee Newbie Tournament Vol. 2
« on: August 19, 2007, 11:04:51 pm »

Hey you. Yeah, you. I don't mean that other guy. I am talking to you, the person reading this sentence. You've been tossing and turning into the long hours of the night wondering this:  "How can I, a n00b, play against other people in online Star Control melee without being struck down, dismembered, chopped up and then eaten by ravenous wolves?" Worry no more newbie, we've got your back covered. This is the tournament just for you!



Date: Sunday, August 26th, 2007
Place: #UQM-Arena on irc://chat.freenode.net
Time:
  • 4 AM Sydney
  • 6 AM Otaki
  • 11 AM Los Angeles
  • 12 PM Denver
  • 1 PM Chicago
  • 2 PM New York
  • 7 PM London
  • 8 PM Paris
  • 9 PM Helsinki

Tournament structure: It's a Swiss tournament. If you lose a round, you aren't ejected from the tournament but instead play against the other beaten players. There will be three rounds, then possibly a final bout between the two top participants if a clear winner has not emerged. This, of course, assumes enough people show up to play a proper tournament.

---Game rules---

1) Maximum fleet size of 200 points.
2) Only one of each ship type is allowed in your fleet.
3) You must have your team set up before connecting to another player for melee. Do not adjust your fleet once you've connected to an opponent.
4) All ships (including Thraddash) are allowed.
5) The organizer’s decision is final on all matters. Hopefully I won't have to make any.
6) The following horrible jerks cannot participate in this tournament:
  • Elvish Pillager
  • Tiberian
  • AngusThermopyle
  • Cedric6014
  • Stara
  • Shiver

The current reigning champion of the pillow war is Amiga Nut. Someone please beat him so I don't have to put him on the list above.

I'm in, assuming I can be bothered to wake up at 10am as opposed to my regular awakening at noon. Wink

But for my weekend connection being dialup, I'd be there. So, no. Sadly. Cry

I can't go, yet again.  Can't you make one that's on a Thursday or Friday?

I am not changing the date of the tournament at the last second. The next one could possibly be at a different time, but I don't like the idea of Cedric's tournaments and mine being on the same day. Feel free to argue this out in here, I'm open to moving the next event around if enough people can agree on the same time.

Tournament Results

[1st Place]
Lurker -- 3 Wins, 0 Losses, 246 Points

[2nd Place]
Amiga Nut -- 2 Wins, 1 Loss, 152 Points

[3rd Place]
Arbaal -- 2 Wins, 1 Loss, 58 Points

[4th Place]
Slasshes -- 1 Win, 2 Losses, -62 Points

[5th Place]
Scwyci -- 1 Win, 2 Losses, -98 Points

[6th Place]
spikyborgcube -- 0 Wins, 3 Losses, -296 points



Synopsis: The games went much more smoothly this time around. Amiga Nut lost his Championship Pillow to Lurker, so I don't have to think about booting him from future tournaments. Let's hope Pillow Fight 3 has as good of a turn-out.
