After poring over a ridiculously complicated Excel document all night, I’ve finally managed to schedule the Top Tier Tactics ACR tournament.
The roster is impressive, and I’ve managed to fill eleven brackets with a great selection of returning tournament players and fearsome new entries… including the oh-so-famous Escoblades and RaininStormwake. I’d say you’re all screwed, but as we saw last time, it’s very possible an unknown Templar will take the whole thing. Lucky for you, it doesn’t appear our last champion, RobyRK93, was interested in playing.
Rules change: Semifinals
Due to a number of suggestions on the T3 Forums, in article comments, and via e-mail, I have decided to ammend the tournament rules and add a Semifinal Round.
Instead of eliminating the lower half of the players who place first in their respective brackets, the top eleven players will be split into two (2) Semifinal Brackets.
Semifinal Bracket M will consist of six (6) players. Semifinal Bracket N will consist of five (5) players. Each bracket will play a round of Deathmatch and a round of Wanted.
Each player’s scores between both rounds will be totaled. The top four (4) players of Semifinal Bracket M and the top three (3) players of Semifinal Bracket N will advance to the Final Round.
These changes should make the finalist selection more fair than just cutting players who may have done very well but faced stiffer competition.
