Loony "Dirty Cheater" BoB. I'd check his previous games and make sure he didn't cheat to get here!

No, I just remember someone saying something like "lol they're still using the old rules which don't apply anymore" or something when we had the previous round. I dunno, too lazy to look it up. :p

lol guys it's better to stick to the right side of the field in the fire tournament - i probably would've done better had I actually stuck to that strategy in my only game

Got internet atm, but will be off until the 9th pretty soon, so BoB got quite a bit of time to think through his first move. :p

FINAL

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?

While it's far from over yet, I do have a pretty good feeling about this one so far. :greenie:

Edit: Actually... I'm not all that confident anymore, since I figured my last move could have been better. Ah well, we shall see. It all depends on BoB's last two cards, really. =O


Edit 2: Ahhhhh!!! These last decisions are so tough to make! It's basically a 50/50 bet now. If I put my card in the right spot, I can win, if I put it in the wrong one I can lose. And it all depends on BoB's last card! Hmmmmmmmm............. gawddammnit I feel like I made the wrong decision! =(

Edit 3: PHEW! My guess DID turn out to be right!

I win 6-4. Very good and exciting game!

SEMI-FINALS!

The Swedes are marching on! Ultima Shadow and Rantz's viking dream team are now in the Semi-Finals. Meanwhile Raistlin is the lone American left in the contest, and he and Dutchman Aerith's Knight have been doing extremely well given that they did not compete in Firaga.

Our semi-final match ups are as follows:

Ultima Shadow v Raistlin

Rantz v Aerith's Knight

With a place in the final beckoning, who will come out on top?

6-4 in my favor now (would have been 7-3 if combo had been on, thanks to elemental bonus). Your move. :cool:

Ultima Shadow
12-15-2012, 02:37 PM
Though I'm in a 7-3 lead at the moment, it's not over yet. It will most certainly turn back to 6-4 (or even 5-5 in case of same/plus) with Raistlin's next move, which means I will have to be very careful with my last move. Raistlin did place his third card in the best spot available, so now it's hard to play cards without creating possible plus/same opportunities for him. Hmmm...

...otherwise, I'm looking forward to getting my sweet revenge on Rantz in the final. :greenie:

Edit: Only Raistlin's last card is left. The worst outcome possible for me now is a draw. :cool:

Aerith's Knight

I lost 6-4 (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=7474). It looks like I made the wrong choice on my second-to-last card and could have plausibly forced a draw, but it was a toss up what Ultima would use as his last card. I was behind early due to Ultima's obviously pre-planned setup, and couldn't catch up.

I actually did assume that your last two cards would be Grendel and Mesmerize, and my last card would allow a Plus/Same for either Grendel or Mesmerize, so I decided that if you played a Grendel as your second last card, I would use the card that would allow Plus/Same for Grendel (and vice versa) since I though it'd be unlikely that you would use two of the same. :p

THE GRAND FINAL!

It's a veritable smorgsabord as the viking cuddlebucket RANTZIEN squares off against the runner up in the Firaga tournament, ULTIMA SHADOW.

Ultima Shadow has had a long and hard route to this point, starting off with a victory over kotora before coming up against Citizen Bleys, one of the semi-finalists of the Firaga tournament. He then dispatched Loony BoB, a veteran of Triple Triad before managing to overcome Raistlin.

Meanwhile Rantz had a relatively easy start, having a bye in the first round before a tricky abandoned match against Red Mage Coffman. He dispelled all doubts about his worthiness of a place in the tournament with a crushing 8-2 victory over Firaga Champion Jiro, before eliminating the dark horse of the tournament Aerith's Knight.

Rantz famously beat Ultima Shadow in the opening match of Firaga, yet it was Ultima Shadow who had the last laugh after winning the group. Rantz was only a whisker away from qualifying after losing a hard-fought epic with Quin. Had things gone differently and he'd beaten Quin, he would've taken Shads's place in the semi-finals. Both men have points to prove and there is a score to settle... and the prize at stake is a big one!

Meanwhile, in our third-place playoff, RAISTLIN will take on AERITH'S KNIGHT. Neither man was fancied but they have shown the doubters wrong, both knocking up some impressive scalps and victories along the way.

I think I got two of Rantz remaining cards figured out. But what could the third be? Hmmmmmm...

Also, I expected you to have a Grand Mantis! Hah! I used them in every battle up to this point, so I knew you'd use one yourself in this battle! :colbert:


...aaaaaaaaand it's all down to those last two cards of yours. I'm sure I know one of them. But depending on what the other might be, things can still go either way. THIS IS SO EXCITING!!! :hyper:


Oh my gosh, yes! Your last card wasn't better than the Mesmerize I knew you had! And PHEW, you made the wrong bet - could have costed me the game if you hadn't played it as "safe" as possible with the Grendel first. xD

Very good game!

Ah, I see. Well, I figured you had a Grendel and a Mesmerize. Yet, I gotta admit... I was very nervous that you would play the Mesmerize first. Of course, if I'd had a Grendel myself, that would have been even worse for you. So it was a bit of a random bet I guess. But had you made the right guess/prediction, it could have gotten really scary. That was a very, very close one. xD

Great game! This was the scariest one so far, by far. Seriously. Also... I finally got my revenge. ;)

One day we shall have a tournament match that is not determined by one of us making a clumsy mistake or oversight. :argh:Indeed! Next time, next tournament, there shall be no forgetting the rules, no mixing up the card colours and no clumsy miscalculations! We shall fight like true vikings, in a clash so epic it makes your match with Quin seem like child's play! :colbert:


...but until then, I shall gloat about this glorious victory like there's no tomorrow! :monster:

Can we get some instructions for people who don't hang around the forum that often? I don't know where/how you guys are playing, or anything. You shouldn't assume everyone who wants to play is a regular =\

AK sent me an invite that had "All" as the victory rule, and I declined it because I don't want to bother having to get more level 1/2 cards. :colbert: I sent him a new invite.

Interesting match. But if I were to place a bet at this point, I'd have to say Raistlin.

...that's only me going by what cards I'm guessing that both player have left in their hands though, so I could be totally wrong. A draw is pretty likely too. :monster:

Raistlin
12-19-2012, 12:54 AM
Well it was going to be a tie, and then my browser froze up and I ended up accidentally clicking the wrong spot. Thankfully that didn't impact anything, and we went into Sudden Death... where I didn't see any Elemental signs. But there actually were elemental signs, I just couldn't see them until I refreshed, so my first two moves made no sense at all and I was down big and couldn't recover.

How anticlimactic. xD Oh well, it was amazing I got this far anyway.

I lost the same way in the match against Rantz. That's why I took the precaution of reloading.

AWARDS
Most epic match of the tournament:
Psychotic v Faris. (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=6938) This one went the distance!

Most exciting match of the tournament:
Jiro v Jowy (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=7266) A quick and brutal back-and-forth contest.

Best Match
Aerith's Knight v Rantz (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=7469) It's a shame that the elemental rule blagged Dennis.

Worst Match:
Quin v Loony BoB (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=5887) I hate BoB and Quin's defensive style.

Move of the Tournament:
Rantz's incredible combo on Jiro (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=7429) sees him go from 4-6 down to 7-3 up!

Best Comeback
Ultima Shadow pulling it off against Rantz. (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=7530) You're 3-7 down in the final with just two cards left to play... you panic, right? Not if your name is Ultima Shadow!

The D'oh! Award
Faris could've used the Plus rule to draw in her match with Raistlin. (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=7438)

The "Was that really so difficult?" Award
Goldenboko v Red Mage Coffman

(This was their second attempt... Goldenboko won a similar award in Firaga)

The Tidus "Do you even exist?" Award
Red Mage Coffman. No record of any game of his exists. WHAT IS GOING ON.

The Brute Force Award
Check out my match with Shauna. (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=4932) It was woeful xD No special captures were used and it was just a card being captured every round!

The "Screw you guys, I'm going home" Award
Aerith's Knight. Incidentally, everybody bet on Vivi22 or Raistlin to win this award.

Best Country
Sweden

<s>I'll give out the gil prizes soon.</s> Done. You can claim your cards in the normal way!

Quin v Loony BoB (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=5887) I hate BoB and Quin's defensive style.

Wow, that is awful.

I'm surprised that I didn't win the D'oh Award for my 3rd place match.

Might as well take this opportunity to mention the awesome new game style me and Jiro thought of (potential candidate for a future "Fira" tournament maybe?), currently named "Commander".

Basically, 4 of your cards can be level 1 to 4. But your final card - the "commander" - can be level 5 to 10. In other words, you are playing a level 1-4 match, but each player got a single big boss/trumph card to turn things around with/beat your opponent's ass even more badly with.

We playtested it a few times, and it's actually pretty awesome. It's also a style that's available to pretty much everyone since you don't need lots of powerful level 7+ cards to have a good shot at winning. Yet, it still allows you to play your favourite Boss, GF or Character card. :greenie:

Citizen Bleys
12-20-2012, 01:29 AM
I like the sound of that idea, as long as the "Commander" card is limited to the highest level of cards possessed by the player for whom that level is lower.

Jiro
12-20-2012, 01:31 AM
I beat Shads' Eden (Lvl9) with Ifrit (Lvl8) so it's not even about how strong your commander is.

Ultima Shadow
12-20-2012, 01:37 AM
I like the sound of that idea, as long as the "Commander" card is limited to the highest level of cards possessed by the player for whom that level is lower.
If you posses higher level cards than your opponent, I'd say you should at least be able to use "the highest level of cards possesed by your opponent +1 or even +2", so people with GF cards can get an opportunity to use those. The power difference between level 6 and 7 cards, 7 and 8 cards or level 8 and 9 cards isn't big enough to make a huge difference when the majority of the cards are still level 1-4. In fact, I'd say that cards such as Ultima Weapon and Catobeplas are probably better than many level 8 GF cards for this mode. Not to mention the same and plus rules can screw more powerful cards over too.
:monster:

...a good example is that one match where both me and Jiro saved our GF cards for last, and I was in the lead and just put down my Eden card as my final move without thinking (shoul have double-checked the stats of Jiro's commander cards >_>). And lost because Jiro's commander (final card) triggered a nasty same combo through my Eden card. So, actually using my commander cost me that game. :p
