Ok Round 1 over now onto Round 2 - With 8 players left, it's knock-out time. 1 vs 1 matches with the loser going out. I will do the draw shortly.
Lufferov (159) vs. Mohsin (104)ReplyDelete
Lufferov wins! What started out as a close game with fairly even scores took a turn when I was able to claim a large city with two of my meeple to Mohsin's one. He couldn't really put up a fight after that and it was all over.
Question: How will the 2nd round draw occur? Is it like a world cup where 1st place plays 2nd place in another group? If so, the full draw could take place now which would let us see what our likely path to the final would be.ReplyDelete
For example winner of group A plays runner up of group B, winner of group B plays runner up of group C and so on....
2nd round will be everyone in a hat & picked out by randomReplyDelete
That's a shame, it would be nice to have an advantage to winning your group. There is no difference between winning and coming second if it's random.ReplyDelete
That's why the World Cup Football draw works so well as it's more important to win the group.
Maybe on the next tournament I'll change it so we have seedings but for now this tournament stays as it isReplyDelete
The scoring seems a bit screwy to me too. One point for winning a 2 player game and three points for winning the 3 player game.
That means I won two and came second once and ranked below Carl you won 2 and lost 1... how does that work? I didn't lose any games, yet don't get the most points....?
Not a huge deal as we both go through to the next round. But I think we need to look at this in more detail for future tournaments.
