An interesting game. The only winning move is not to play.

I'm looking forward to a match with WR. If we don't come up against each other in this tournament, I will most assuredly be issuing a challenge immediately upon its completion.

I actually already think that this battle between Quin and Rantz is the most epic TT match ever. It even beats that one were me and BoB had like 5 Sudden Deaths or something. What's this one up in? 6? xD

Huckleberry Quin
11-13-2012, 11:00 PM
Um, I'm not sure. I think we're on our fifth round. Either way, we're about to have another! xD

Steve
11-13-2012, 11:18 PM
Formalhaut has not accepted the repeated offer on the game.... how long do we give him before ruling the game as forfeited?

Rantz
11-13-2012, 11:20 PM
We're "only" on our fourth game by my count. But yeah, looks like another draw is coming up. xD The lack of a combo rule is sadly making the game much easier to predict.

Huckleberry Quin
11-13-2012, 11:24 PM
Okay, that means we're on our fifth round now. Let's see if we can break Shads and BoBs Sudden Death record ;).

Oh. Felt like it was at least the fifth. xD

True. Take note of this, Psy! Make sure there is combo next time! And no one likes open. :p

Okay, that means we're on our fifth round now. Let's see if we can break Shads and BoBs Sudden Death record ;).You already did. When I checked again, we only had 4 rounds actually. xD

Rantz
11-13-2012, 11:28 PM
It's probably best to have either Open AND Combo, or neither.

Huckleberry Quin
11-13-2012, 11:30 PM
Aye. I'm very happy about there being another Tournament, and these things should definitely be a quarterly event, but tournament level matches should never be Open. Well, no. Low level tournaments should be open, so as to not turn off the new players, but higher level matches should be Closed. :D

I am loving this, though. And there's no doubt that Open, plus the lack of Combo, is the reason our match has gone on so long haha.

EDIT: Hmm. Good point, Rantz. We could have tiers. Beginners tier: Open, no Combo. Intermediate tier: Open, Combo. Advanced tier: Closed, Combo. What do you think?

Flying Mullet

The suspense is killing me.

Loony BoB
11-14-2012, 12:43 PM
Aye, we should do this quarterly.
Yeah, I agree. =]

I have challenged Quin and Jowy. Jowy declined because he couldn't do it at work and didn't want to leave the notification sitting there. Staring. So I'll have to resubmit that sometime. Or he can challenge me! Still waiting on Quin to accept.

Flying Mullet
11-14-2012, 01:11 PM
Oh god, please don't confuse poor Quin with another game challenge. Dealing with one never-ending game is enough for the poor soul.

Ultima Shadow
11-14-2012, 02:22 PM
kotora finally accepted my request for the Fire tournament. And justgoing by the cards we both play, I do see a slight possibility of our match ending up getting some sudden deaths as well. It all depends though, so we'll see how it goes. :greenie:

Aerith's Knight

Alright, I've beaten NCG, he can't make a move anymore that results in my defeat

What does the bracket look like now?

Huckleberry Quin
11-14-2012, 06:10 PM
I'll accept your challenge once this match is over Bob, haha. I've not eaten today, so a cock up is likely on my end! :D

Psychotic
11-14-2012, 06:14 PM
Just to clarify, the two semi-final spots will go to two from Ultima Shadow, Rantz, Quin and Jiro, and this match will decide who they go to... depending on the score, although I assume it will be 6-4...!

Though I am highly tempted to call it a tie and eliminate both of them.

Huckleberry Quin
11-14-2012, 06:18 PM
That's not very nice. :(

I need to win 9-1 or greater to go through, right? Well, I think you can determine who will go through based on that alone, haha. This is just a battle for honour now. ;)

Ultima Shadow

I think their match is the most epic one ever. xD And I wouldn't call a tie quite yet though - I'd say let them at least finish the current one first. :p

Also, kotora finally accepted my challenge for the Fire match. It took some days before he did, so we're a bit behind on schedule for that reason I guess. I'll be playing my moves whenever I see he has made a move though. :greenie:

GG though. :greenie:

I win 7-3.

...could you post the replay by the way? If you haven't played more than 5 recent matches after this one, it should be in your TT profile. I have, however, played over 5 matches since ours started, so I couldn't find it. :p

Psychotic
11-14-2012, 07:45 PM
For Fire, we're waiting on:

Goldenboko v Red Mage Coffman (which I understand is nearly complete?)
Jiro v MTKO (No idea)
Iceglow v Formalhaut (Issues...?!)
AK v NCG (apparently about to be finished and AK will win)

How is it going, Steve and Formalhaut?

Also is the Quin v Rantz epic still going? I am wondering whether or not just to call it a tie. You two are obviously a perfect match for each other in terms of skill level. Although a tie would see you both eliminated and I don't know if I can do that to two heroic card warriors.

Huckleberry Quin
11-15-2012, 04:23 PM
Yeah, it's still chugging along, haha. Can't be too long before somebody wins, though! :D

How about this: tie, but they are both rewarded with a level 8 card each for the most epic/even match ever? Their match can keep going until someone eventually wins anyway for the sake of honour, but the tournament can move on without having to wait, and they will both get a cool reward for their hard work. Just a thought. :p

tbh it can be done tonight though it's gonna need some miraculous stuff for it to conclude differently from how it stands. Behemel to bottom left was a mistake on formalhauts game.

Formalhaut

I was trying to get a "same", but as always it never pays off..

Ultima Shadow

I was trying to get a "same", but as always it never pays off..
...do you mean "Plus"? Plus would have worked for your last card if that rule had been active. But "Same", which was active, works differently. "Same" means that the numbers facing each other must be exactly the same (a 4 facing a 4 and a 5 facing a 5 etc). Same is usually harder to pull off than Plus for this reason.


Also, Rantz hasn't made a move for almost 3 days now in the Quin vs Rantz battle. Is he thinking THAT hard on his next move? xD

I was hoping he would put down the card with the two 1s on the left and right, in which case I then could have samed him and then get a combo.

Rantz
11-16-2012, 05:48 PM
Sorry, I've been at a conference with work and forgot to notify y'all. I'd be fine with calling it a tie for the purposes of the tournament if Quin is. :p Don't want to make it drag on forever!

Ah, I see. Well, I figured you were probably busy or something. :p

I do approve of the tie-idea personally, since it seems like this could drag on forever, but I also think you and Quin deserve some kind of reward for this crazy epic TT battle. xD

...and I also hope that even if it's a tie in the tournament so the tournament can go on, you can eventually finish your game in a satisfying way, however long it might take. :p

So this is how it feels to be no longer undefeated.

Accepting match now, BoB.

Also, I'm fine with calling Rantz vs. Quin a tie. I'd rather not hold up the tournament, haha. I'm still gonna continue with it, if Rantz doesn't mind. :D

Challenge issued, we'll see if I can out play this guy and ruin all your bets. If I do win coincidentally I believe Psychotic for completely not believing in his bro ought to deliberately give me from his deck 3 level 7 cards.

Bleys vs. Jiro will be delayed until about 09:00 GMT so that neither of us are overtired or distracted during a tourney match, but we'll be playing live, so we should be done in fairly short order. No open rule reduces the chance of a Quin vs. Rantz-style stalemate.

I'm still looking forward to a match vs. WR.

Just don't expect that to happen in the Grand Finals, for my bet's on me and Jiro. :colbert:

Also, the challenge has been sent! Only waiting for WB to accept now. :excited:

Jiro
11-19-2012, 12:06 AM
Citizen Bleys and I shall meet at High Noon and duel for the right to enter the final stage! I'm excited to face either Shads or WR in the finals, assuming I beat down this Canadian first!

Rantz
11-19-2012, 11:58 AM
Quin vs. Rantz is over. I finally messed up and Quin didn't waste a moment in claiming the victory. What a man... :love:

Here's the replay. (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=5505) I count 6 draws, which means a magical 7 rounds. Perfect!

Huckleberry Quin
11-19-2012, 02:57 PM
I had you from the moment you played Fujin/Raijin. ;)

Great match, my friend. Many thanks to this tournament for allowing me such an opportunity! :D

Now, on to suffering a humiliating defeat at BoB's hands.

Ultima Shadow
11-19-2012, 04:42 PM
Excellent! Incredibly well done, Quin. This is certainly a victory to be proud about! :cool:


Edit: Also, I just noticed: it looks like you and BoB are playing with the round 1 rules for the Fire tournament and not the round 2 ones. Just noticed this since me and Bleys made the same mistake. :p

Technically there's one move left, but Jiro hath officially defeated me (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=live&id=7157)

EDIT: Someone challenge me to Random/Closed/Trade Rule: None. I want to try that but can't decide on a victim.

I had to make up for my disappointing loss to WildRaubtier.
(http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=7157)
EDIT: Was it best of three or straight knock out?

Ultima Shadow
11-22-2012, 01:57 AM
There was nothing mentioned about it being best out of three, so I assume it's straight knock out. Though I think the final at the very least should be best out of three. :p

Also, Wild Raubtier has yet to accept my challenge, so it could take a while longer before the second finalist is determined. =O

Citizen Bleys
11-22-2012, 01:59 AM
Best of three isn't a valid tourney rule, it's either single elimination or double elimination.

Fire actually got three ongoing matches and two that hasn't even started yet (Raistlin vs WildRaubtier and Jiro vs Jowy). So yeah... the current round in Fire is not nearly finished yet it seems. :p

...as for Firaga, WildRaubtier just gotta accept my challenge so we can actually start playing the last semi-final match of the tournament. Come on, WB! We don't have to be online at the same time for you to just accept the request! :greenie:

Jiro

Sent my request to Jowy.

WildRaubtier

Oh... AHEM... WR. R and B... uh... look so similar or something? Ahem. It was totally a fair mistake... I think. :greenie:

And awww, no Fire plus Firaga at the same time? And here I was hoping Raistlin would distract you so that I could win more easily. AHEM, I mean... uh... I hoped we could all be finished sooner. Yes, that's it! :shifty:

Another suggestion for the next tournament: some kind of predetermined time limit for making a move and accepting the battle requests! It could be a week, but at least no one would have to wait longer than a week then. :greenie:

Ultima Shadow
11-26-2012, 02:01 AM
Yeah, and it would especially give people a good motivation to hurry up a little bit. It's not that hard to at least just play a card every time you go online. You might want to stop and think sometimes, but you shouldn't have to think for a week to make one move or decide what cards to use for your match etc. :p

Steve
11-26-2012, 12:46 PM
Well myself and Mirage is in to the second round, we'll try not to make it another Rantz vs Quin epic duel of level 2 and 1 cards because that could be pretty damn testing.

Mirage
11-26-2012, 02:57 PM
Oh hey guys, the next tournament should be double elimination, and perhaps a "Fira" class, where we have up to level 7 or 8 cards, in addition to the two we have in this tournament.

I'm starting to think that WR might need some kind of deadline for accepting my request (or just making his own if mine gets too old), seriously. Because this has dragged on too long already, and we've not even been able to start our match yet. :p

If he hasn't started playing by the end of this month, I win our match by default. :colbert:

Well Round 3 has begun with myself and Mirage. If I'm not careful though he runs the risk of out performing me by virtue of having the more powerful cards left over from Sudden Death. I think we ought to consider a cap to the number of games before the match is declared an un-decidable draw. At least for tournament play.

No. Just... no. :colbert:



...well, actually, on second thought I guess I could go for that (if I beat WR or he decides to never show up). Considering that I now have 12+ of every level 7 card (25 Ultima Weapons), I think my chances of getting to play with level 7 cards would be quite high. And... I don't really fear losing a few in the worst case scenario. :greenie:

How is that game anyway? I might pick it up tbh.

Ultima Shadow
11-29-2012, 08:22 AM
Well, I really like it. I still prefer Vesperia (but that's because I absolutely love Vesperia), but Graces f is an overall great game. Possibly the best PS3 RPG I've played so far. :greenie:

Edit: Ahhh... put down the wrong last card by accident. Though there is only one card that can screw me up with that placement, so as long as that one card isn't WR's last card... well, then I probably got this. This makes it more exciting though, I guess. Will my arrogant mistake be my undoing, or will I win anyway? It's almost too exciting to be real. :greenie:

Jiro
11-29-2012, 08:34 AM
I loved Vesperia too. The Tales series is great.

Ultima Shadow
11-29-2012, 08:42 AM
Indeed. It might even be my number 1 fav RPG series right now to be honest. :greenie:

That was a good, close match though.

Jiro

Your fucking Elvoret was such an unknown quantity. I didn't see it coming. Also I couldn't remember all the card values so I was having to take gambles on where you could hit me with a Same/Plus.

...although "everywhere" seems about right :exdee:

Ultima Shadow
11-30-2012, 11:59 AM
Haha, well I guess I had a small advantage then, since I actually took time to recall all the cards in the last match. And yeah, Elvoret is Ifrit's new best buddy. :p

EL GRANDO FINALITO!

ULTIMA SHADOW, aka the Swedish Dreamboat vs JIRO, aka the Australian Disco Diva!

Both these two fine stallions have had a difficult road to the finals, both losing matches to fellow countrymen in the group stage. Ultima Shadow started off with a shock loss to Rantz which saw him bottom of the Moogle group, but turned on the style with a fine victory over Mirage and then putting Quin to the sword. He was then on tenterhooks for the outcome between Rantz and Quin until it was declared a tie. He then successfully staved off WildRaubtier and broke his 100% win record to march into the final.

Jiro, meanwhile, steamed ahead in Tonberry, putting Loony BoB down right away. He then suffered a blow at the hands of Wild Raubtier, but managed to utterly destroy Jowy 8-2 to qualify as best runner up. Like Shadow, he too faced an opponent who had not yet lost, Citizen Bleys, in the semi-finals. And like Shadow, he managed to emerge victorious.

So, what are they fighting for? I'll tell you what. EoFF's first ever Level 10 Triple Triad card. Oh yes. 2,025 gil will also be awarded to the man who comes out on top. There will be a reward for the runner up too, as he will receive a Level 9 card and 1,025 gil!

Meanwhile, in our third place playoff, CITIZEN BLEYS will take on WILDRAUBTIER.

WildRaubtier has expressed a desire to have nothing more to do with this thread. Will the third place prize, a Level 8 Card and 525 gil, be enough to tempt him into battle against the wily Canadian?

Alright, Jiro. Let's do this. :cool:

...I got a feeling that the elemental rule will end up being the deciding factor that screws one of us over somehow. :p

That's why it's there. ;)

For those Fire Players who are eager to crack on, I intend to do some work on that shortly. Bracket has been updated: Fire Tournament - CHALLONGE! (http://challonge.com/eoff)

My understanding is BoB v Quin and Jowy v Jiro are still ongoing, and Red Mage Coffman has not made a move in some time in Rantz's game. I'll probably consider giving Rantz a bye.

Finally got an okay strategy to take on the Jumbo Cactuars and Propagators of Doom

Aaaand, Jiro actually beat me when it counted the most.

...I shall never use Ifrit ever again. He only brings me bad luck, apparently. :p

Jiro
11-30-2012, 03:22 PM
That's why I ended up losing him to you. Useless card. xD

I'd like to say it was an easy victory, but Ultima Shadow pushed me to an entirely new level. I've never played that intelligently. So thank you for being an absolute bro.

When you stand victorious, strong and unbeaten. Remember! Remember who taught you how to fight! Remember who taught you all you know! :count:

JIRO IS VICTORIOUS!

We do indeed have a winner! (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=7392) Congratulations to Jiro! Congratulations to both, really! It was a hard fought contest. Prizes will be given out at the end.

Now, speaking of prizes, Jiro has earned himself a little extra bonus. For you see, he correctly predicted an Australian winner and thus earns 500 gil! kotora is the only other person to do so and will also scoop the prize.

Meanwhile, Rantz and WildRaubtier were the only people to predict that Bleys, Ultima Shadow and WildRaubtier would top their groups and will both pick up a cool 1,000 gil. We do of course still have our third place match between Bleys and WR to come.

Indeed, I'm not a fan of Elemental, either. Although it's invaluable for Sudden Death matches as otherwise you can sometimes end up playing exactly the same games over and over and nobody wins. So it's needed to help resolve things like that by adding variation to the board.

On a Fire note, I think I'm assured of victory over Quin now. Unless I've miscalculated something.

EDIT: Just realised I'll be up against Ulti if I win. Dammit.

Oh, I still have another match? This is unexpected.

I've wanted a crack at WR since we both came up 3/0 in our initial brackets.

Am I the only one who loves Elemental? Not even because it helped me win, I've loved using it always. It makes the tough cards even easier to topple!

Apparently so!

Right, should we go ahead with the matches in Fire we know are happening, ie Raistlin v Faris and Iceglow v AK? If so, I'll post the rules for the next round and wait for BoB/Quin and Rantz/RMC to catch up.

BoB wins. He just has to take his move (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=battle&id=5887).

I mainly dislike it because it feels like all it ever does is nerf cards in random spots. It's very, very rare for the actual elements to matter (even if you play an elemental card and there's a spot with the same element, it's very likely that it's a bad spot for the card and you don't want to place it there anyway). Basically... I think it would have been better if the elemental spots only gave plus to cards of the same element instead of nerfing all other cards. However... more of the cards should be elemental then, and there could be a bit less different kinds of elements. And then every spot could always have some kind of element when playing with the elemental rule. That would make it more important and interesting to actually use elemental cards. :p


...also @ Jiro: since you emerged victorious in the grand final, I think you deserve a chance to win Ifrit back now. HOWEVER... how about we do it like this: if you win, you can just snatch the Ifrit card. But if I win, you will have to use Leviathan the next time you try to win the Ifrit card back. Meaning you will be losing Leviathan if you lose the second time too. Sounds fair? :greenie:



...@ Psy: I'm all for that.

yeah I screwed up after getting slightly disturbed by the sight of you being able to put down 2 grendels back to back due to TT giving me bugs. Ruined any focus I had on the game at that point.

No as in you played 2 Grendels BACK - TO - BACK without any pause or myself taking a turn when I was playing you, was distracting.

I don't know what you were smoking, but we never skipped you while playing. You had your turns.

I feel bad being declared the winner in the match against RMC as he did come back and play after the long absence, but we reached a draw and who knows how long the next bout will take, so I understand the need to pick a winner.

a refresh fixed the issue but yeah it glitched at first and kept putting grendel's down on your turn xD
