TWS13 Tournament Recap: Team GKG is "Champs"

Postby par73 » Wed Apr 24, 2013 3:58 pm

So the QR rounds went into the playoffs with a blaze (and after a short delay due to holiday). there was an upset in the first round of elimination with team dantski (6 seed) taking out team ratking (3 seed). all the other higher seeds in the first round won their matches. semi finals saw team dantski "upsetting" team zak (2 seed), and team gkg (1 seed) taking out team limp (4 seed). both matches in the second round of eliminations went 3-2. the finals saw team gkg taking the victory in a blaze of fire and glory; they did not allow team dantski to have a chance at winning past game 5, they won the same number of games as their opponent's seed number, and continued to play respectfully (as did team dantski) till all 7 games were finished and played. Analytics across the myth universe are juicily waiting for newmutator to cover the matches on youtube.


a few minor end notes here by the TO in regards to
1) "asmo captaining the worst overall team in the tournament" fiasco
2) tournament integrity


zak wrote:He chose the players, he traded for worse ones, and then actively sabotaged his team by talking shit to them and about them. The only one to blame for that team is Asmo. Is this the first time he did bad captaining a team in a draft tournament? How about the last one? He got 3rd out of 4th. His team must have been AWFUL for that to happen.


well seeing as how the team that got 4th was ranked #1 with blowout victories until week3 (when we had 2 key players missing and no replacements available, thus me+arz against the world) his team wasn't that awful at all. in fact in a 4 team myth2 tournament in 2012, teams are much less likely to be awful in comparison to an 8 team myth 2 tournament in 2013.

Asmo wrote:
I did do bad in last draft tournament and it's the same reason Paris did bad in this one. When you are hosting a tournament you sacrifice your personal success for the overall success of the tournament and enjoyment of the players. The same way that Paris drafted Kush and Dom I drafted Funky (when he just started playing) and somnus knowing they probably wouldn't get playing time on other teams.



This is not only true, but originally when the names for captains were being picked from a hat for draft order, guess who was first? Me. I told my faithful name picker to put my name back in the hat and start again.

this would have changed the entire team structure of the tournament no doubt, but i still would have picked random cats toward the end of my latter draft picks.


page 4 of this thread is hilarious and made this entire tournament worth it


congratulations to team GKG, champions of this years winter series. 2nd place to team dantski, that isn't that bad at all round of applause. 3rd place goes to team limp, excellent job boys. 4th goes to team zak, im sure you'll all do great work in mwc. 5th to ghengis, they put in good effort. 6th to team ratking, the upset of the first round playoffs saw their opponents going to the finals i bet they wish they could have stuck around. 7th to my team, goods jobs guys, thanks to those who showed up when they could. 8th to team asmo, if u guys didn't trade drunken u would have been foolish so bravo.

big thanks to my faithful name picker from hat girl, you're a doll babe. more big thanks to grim and toxyn who finally started answering and complying with pm's even though they first responded like computers that look at an image but can't build any conclusions or ideas from it. myrk big thanks to all the team captains. you all did a great job each and every one of you, and your personalities and decision making helped make for a great overall experience for participants in this tournament. thanks to asmo for running the first draft system tournament and giving me some basic framework to copy/paste and implement. thanks to mariusnet for hosting myth 2 and thanks to OM for being aroudn to check for logins which I didn't do once in this tournament but he always has that option available for me. thanks to my team for showing up when they could, it was a great time once we finally got everyone on the roster present for a match, that was my goal for the tournament and I am satisfied. more thanks, for all the participants and supporters of this tournament and those who spoke of a draft-system tournament long ago but never got to see it actualized. maybe you will return one day to taste a piece of your creation.
there you have it folks, that wraps up this tournament.

my computer crashed the other day. when it was recovered I did not have myth installed and I don't plan on reinstalling it for a while.

toodles

Good post and thanks for hosting the tournament Paris. I criticized you during the tournament but it was all for good intentions so the tournament would run smoothly <3.

He probably put your name down in place of zak's because you are both equally retarded so either name works.
