It's back baby! Once again we will be having two tournaments running simultaneously. One will be a newb friendly competition so I recommend all join in. The other will be for seasoned veterans! For those who have a refresher The Fire and Firaga Tournaments (http://home.eyesonff.com/general-chat/146459-twin-triple-triad-tournaments-its-over-you-can-all-go-home-now-grats-jiro-shads.html) give a good idea on how this thing will go. Except with some GoBo flair, instead of some Psychotic flair!


43212

Our first tournament is the Blizzard Tournament! If you haven't had much chance to start collecting cards (or any time at all) this is the tournament for you my friend! This tournament will be restricted to Level 1 and 2 cards all of which are purchasable, no AI battling necessary to be playing the best cards! Our seasonal promotion card Chococlause will be allowed in this tournament.

If you sign up for this tournament you get a Level 6 card just for entering! The more signups there are, the better rewards can be won by performance in this tournament!

The next tournament is the Blizzaga Tournament! This tournament will separate the wheat from the chaff, as people will be allowed to use their fullest decks. However, mixed in will be differing winning rules, so you might want to watch out risking that level 10 card each round previous winners ;).

With that said, you can't win if you don't play and this tournament should be able to have some big prizes if we get enough participants.

Ooh, I'll be out of pocket the 23rd - 28th. If that's going to be a problem then I'll need to withdraw.

Goldenboko

Both tournaments are set to start on the 22nd so that would probably be an issue if you couldn't schedule a time to do some matches during those days :(

Today, I am suspending my bid for the winner of the Blizzard and Blizzaga Tournaments. I believe it is now time for the remaining contestants to unite around the contestant best equipped to win. Despite our differences and the space between us on some of our cards, I believe that candidate is Del's Grandma.

Formalhaut

Oh what the hell, I'll sign-up for the Blizzard tournament.

I'll still probably end up losing in the first round but I guess making up the numbers as an alsoran is a very valuable role?

Respectable turnout for Blizzaga, but Blizzard is failing in comparison to the 20 entrants of Fire! Come'on people!

Betting!</br>
Time for some bets all! </br></br>

Blizzard Betting</br>

25 gil for each correct matchup winner guess!</br>
100 gil for each correct exact score guess!</br>
Had a bit of confusion on this clarifying a proper bet for a matchup would be something like:</br>
Psychotic Vs. Goldenboko: Game 1: Psy - 6 GoBo - 4, Game 2: Psy - 6 GoBo - 4</br>
</br>

Blizzaga Betting</br>

Correctly guess the first place winner of each bracket (best card differential)! 300 gil
</br></br>

Keep in mind new card packs are supposedly on the way, so gil will be worth something.... eventually! Good luck all!

Flying Mullet
05-22-2013, 06:49 PM
So for betting we need to pick the winner and score of each match-up for Blizzard and just the winner of each match-up for Blizzaga?

Goldenboko
05-22-2013, 06:50 PM
Yep. I figured since there were a lot of matchups in Blizzard there's more lucky guessing that can happen!

Rantz
05-22-2013, 06:52 PM
So am I up against Jiro first in the Blizzaga tournament?

Psychotic

LET'S DEW IT

I should probably point out that you should challenge me and not Psychotic if you are playing Psychotic. :shobon:

Goldenboko
05-22-2013, 06:55 PM
So am I up against Jiro first in the Blizzaga tournament?

Each person in a bracket shall face each other person in that bracket, edited that in there. So you play Jiro, Ultima Shadow, and kotora, then 3 of the 4 of you will advance based on records/differentials.

Safe bet: I'm about to get beaten. Accepted a TT match and threw in L1 cards without realising that it was part of the tournament, and then remembered. "Oops."

Still, should be fun trying desperately to figure out a way to get a single card with L1 cards AND Open. xD Booooo to Open.

and then our third match was a legitimate stalemate. We ended up trying to lose for fun and I won at that, but yeah, if you notice our cards in the first and second match are the same, we were genuinely arsed to keep going and GB ruled we had to play a new game instead of carrying on.
FYI: http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8085

Last match (hopefully) going on now.

2nd match - Me http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8086

3rd match -Me http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8087

Twice the plus combo rule dicked me over. #notsoreloser.

PS - Can anyone actually explain what happened in the second and third game in regards to the plus rule. I don't actually have a clue what happened.

With the Open rule on: When going first, your first move usually don't count quite as much. When going second, your first move can (and most likely will) decide the game. :p

I lost to you in the bracket last tournament, so I got my revenge this time around. Now, I also have to pay Jiro back for the Firaga grand final. :cool:

The funny thing is I really didn't. I haven't played since the last tournament.

Interestingly, and I don't know if this was just me, but each time we went into sudden death I couldn't see the element tiles without reloading the page. I had no idea there were any element tiles at all in game 2 until I placed my first card.

^- This.

So, I'd say give it a few more days. kotora finally made his second move. But I think there should be some kind of limit on how long a move should take, however, to prevent every move from taking a few days.



...I would challenge Jiro too at the same time, but... I might want to use one of the cards I'm using against kotora for that. So yeah. But maybe I'll just do it anyway.

Update: My second Blizzard match vs. Faris has completed; she won, so we will have to have a third before we do our Blizzaga match, and then I'll be done with Round 1.

My earlier post has been updated with a game link.

EDIT: Third round completed, I lost this one, too.

Ultima Shadow
05-27-2013, 02:10 AM
At this point, I'm almost completely sure that I will win the match 7-3. But I do want to finish it and see if my prediction is right.

...still, both Jiro and Rantz will have to play kotora as well. Maybe he has just been a bit busy these few days, but... if it takes equally long for Rantz and Jiro to play their matches with him, then finishing the bracket could take a bit too long.

...so while I'm against a deadline for all matches on monday, some kind of rule regarding how long your turns can take would probably still be a good idea. Like... if 48 hours pass without you making a single move, the opponent automatically wins etc, or something like that. Same rule could apply for accepting the challenges.

kotora has now made his third move. After kotora's next move, I will only have one move left, and by then the final result will be 100% decided (though kotora will have to put down the very last card too for the match to officially end).

...it also seems like my prediction was a bit off after all. Now, I think I will win 8-2 rather than 7-3. :greenie:

05-29-2013, 05:31 PM
He says he forfeited the match with you, which is weird because there's no sign of it being over.

Edit: If he forfeited and it's counted as 7-3 that's so unfair, if he brought it up to at least 6-4 I would win the bracket by my calculations :colbert:

Ultima Shadow
05-29-2013, 05:40 PM
Really? He never told me, and yeah... I got no messenge or anything. =O

Well... this does create a problem with "cards for and cards against", I guess. But like I mentioned earlier, I'm pretty sure that it's a 8-2 win for me no matter what. Rantz... could you double-check to see if I'm correct? No matter where he would place his next card, I'm pretty sure I'll get a 8-2 win.

"Any of his cards" in the corner, I respond with Eden directly above it, getting 9-1, then he takes the corner-card back for 8-2.

Any card directly below Siren, and I will respond with Ultima Weapon beside Minotaur. 8-2, his last card can't take over or combo anything.

Finally, any card beside Minotaur: I will place Eden below Siren again, taking over the middle card for 8-2. His last card can neither take anything nor combo.

^- Those are the 3 remaining spots where he can put anything.

Edit:


Edit: If he forfeited and it's counted as 7-3 that's so unfair, if he brought it up to at least 6-4 I would win the bracket by my calculations :colbert:
By my calculations above, it's IMPOSSIBLE for him to get anything but 8-2 right now, (thanks to the fact that there is no trick he can pull off at this point that I would actually fall for). I have taken all his moves into acount, and no matter what he does, I will win 8-2. :greenie:

The only thing he could hope to pull off to turn things around, is a card in the corner, hoping I will use Ultima Weapon beside Minotaur, thus allowing him to get a combo off with his final card. But like I said, I will not fall for that. I will place Eden above the corner card instead, thus eliminating all possibilities of a comeback! See? All moves, taken into consideration, and countered! My 8-2 win can't be prevented! :monster:


If anyone, taking my responses above into consideration, can find an outcome different than 8-2, then just say how. Otherwise, I demand an 8-2 win!

...in fact, it looks like ALL rules were turned off. No plus, same, combo or sudden death either.

It also looks like theundeadhero linked the same replay twice. Here's the real second one:

http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8210


Of course the rest of the match would likely have been played differently if the correct rules were on, but I'd still like to point out that Cim's last card would have flipped an additional 3 cards, turning it to 7-3 in Cim's favour if the plus and combo rules had been on. :p



Edit:

Just to lend Goldenboko a helping hand, these are the two Blizzaga matches that has yet to be listed on page 2:

Bleys vs Faris (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8235)

Bleys vs Vivi (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8110)



It also looks like Tifa's Boobs and Gzussaves finished one of their best of 3 matches for Blizzard, though there are no signs of a second one having started yet. (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8230)

I don't think it'd be fair to demand a replay, I think I sent the invite for the first match and didn't bother to set any of the rules, so when he sent the invite for the second he was just following suit. If TUH wants to replay we can, but I'm not going to try and enforce anything after I contributed to it.

Round one of Blizzaga has come to an end!

From the Canadian Faceoff bracket, the lone Scot doesn't advance! Canada holds strong, however heavy favorite Citizen Bleys did not win overall, Faris had the best record and card ratio!

Over in our reenactment of the 1700s AKA Revolution Rematch, America once again came up victorious as all Americans advanced and Cim was the overall winner! Bad luck to Psychotic who didn't win a single match and is eliminated from the tournament!

Lastly, in our Australia V. The World set, no surprise, Ultima Shadow came up the overall victor, and is the only undefeated player in the round! The loner from the Netherlands is sent packing home, sorry kotora!

Congrats to Ultima Shadow as our overall round victor! Go go you Triple Triad ace! And congrats to the following advancing to ROUND 2 of Blizzaga!

Advancing:

Faris
Loony BoB
Goldenboko

Let's see how our betters did hm?

That's it for the betters! Next round we'll need more of you guys! I'll work on making more people aware of the gil they are missing out on! Next round starts when Blizzard wraps up, so I'll be checking on those who haven't finished their matches soon!

Oh, and didn't Mullet predict Cim's bracket-win?

I can't figure out how to leave the game I lost. ;-;
Triple Triad > Active Battles > select the match until the "you lost" window appears, then wait a bit more or press the confirm-ish button. If the match isn't located under active battles, then you have already left it and you should have all your cards back.

05-31-2013, 02:52 PM

Ultima Shadow
05-31-2013, 03:06 PM
That's weird. Guess it's some kind of bug then. If you have enough level 1-2 cards, you can still start your second match with Gzussaves though. The replay for your first match is available (I believe this is the one (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8230)), so that shouldn't be a problem at least.


Rantz vs Rocket Edge is looking pretty interesting. Their current setup is possibly the most complex in Blizzard so far. :monster:

...actually, this match is very hard to predict. I can't seem to find any safe-win routes for either player.

Which matches are yet to be played?

Ultima Shadow
06-03-2013, 02:48 PM
Gzussaves and Tifa's Boobs: Almost finished. Gzussaves took the first round, and in their second round TB just have to place her last card. There is in fact no way for TB to win or make it a draw at this point though, so Gzussaves has basically won already.


Formalhaut and kotora: Formalhaut's last card is waiting to be played for their first round. The card won't actually do anything though, and kotora has basically won the first round 7-3. I seriously doubt they will finish the second round in time.


Cim and theundeadhero: Because they used completely wrong rules the first time around, they were a bit late in starting their real match. It's the first round, and only Cim's first move has been made. TUH hasn't made a move for quite a few days. They might not even finish the first round at this rate.


Rantz and Rocket Edge: First game, they have come pretty far and it's a bit hard to predict the outcome. Rantz made the last move, and it has been Rocket Edge's turn for a few days. The last move Rantz made has put Rocket Edge in a tricky situation, but it should still be possible for Rocket Edge to turn it into a draw > Sudden Death at the very least... if he actually shows up and makes his move, that is.

Looks like TUH has finally made a move. Cim did as well, so it's TUH's turn again.

Meanwhile, Rocket Edge did indeed go for the best move available, and so I'm pretty sure that Rantz vs Rocket Edge will be a draw/Sudden Death now.

Unfortunately we can't, the god mode AI contains an error which freezes the game.

EDIT: It appears TB cannot win her match and already lost her first, which means there are only two matchups left for Blizzard.

Ultima Shadow
06-04-2013, 03:48 PM
Unfortunately we can't, the god mode AI contains an error which freezes the game.
That's a shame. =(



...and as I thought, Rantz vs Rocket Edge went on to Sudden Death. Meanwhile, TUH and Cim have gotten about halfway through their game. They've both been playing very defensively so far, so it's still 5-5 and hard to say how the game will go. But that could change quickly within the next couple of moves.


Edit: Looks like Cim takes the game - TUH's last card will trigger Plus, but only take one card, resulting in 6-4 to Cim. It looks like Rantz has managed to get a pretty nasty board advantage in his Sudden Death against Rocket Edge too.

Goldenboko

As Blizzard's round fizzles to an end (I'll be dealing with that once one or two more games clear up). It's time for the next round of Blizzaga!<br/><br/>


43336<br/><br/>

In this round we will be split into 3 brackets of three, of which only one will advance from each! This will be determined by record only. Differential does not advance anyone out of their brackets, in case of ties, tie-breaker matches must be held! Ultimate victory must be achieved on the battlefield! In case you were wondering where these brackets come from, in this spoiler tag is the seeds based on performance last round and the premade structure I had ready for this round.<br/><br/>

<br/>
Seeds<br/>
Ultima Shadow - 3 Wins, 0 Losses, +10 card differential
Faris - 2 wins, 1 loss, +10 card differential
Pantz - 2 wins, 1 loss, +8 card differential
Bleys - 2 wins, 1 loss, +6 card differential
Cim - 2 wins, 1 loss, +4 card differential
Goldenboko - 2 wins, 1 loss, +2 card differential
Loony BoB - 2 wins, 1 loss, +2 card differential (order of BoB and Boko didn't matter because of below bracket-layout. Either way tie would've been determined by match in which Goldenboko was victor)
Vivi22 - 2 wins, 1 loss, 0 card differential
Jiro - 1 win, 2 losses, -4 card differential<br/><br/>

Bracket Seed Setup<br/>
Victor's Spoil - Allows person to who came in first last round to face "weakest" opponents.<br/>
1 Seed v 8 Seed v 9 Seed<br/><br/>

The Runner up - Allows person to who came in second last round to face "weakest" opponent left over.<br/>
2 Seed v 6 Seed v 7 Seed<br/><br/>

Middle of the pack - Person who came in 3rd faces neither the best or worst based on last round's performance.<br/>
3 Seed v 4 Seed v 5 Seed<br/><br/> <br/><br/>

So... Cim vs Bleys could be the deciding match for the Middle of the Pack bracket, while Faris vs BoB will decide the winner of the Runner Up bracket. :greenie:

...meanwhile, Rocket Edge has not made a move for a pretty long time in his match vs Rantz in Blizzard.


Edit:

Cim vs Bleys is a real nailbiter. It's all down to Bleys' last card. Is it a Catobeplas or Jumbo Cactuar which will turn the tides with crazy combos, or... is it a different card, which will result in Cim's victory instead? =O

Time to start calling matches. I gave as long as I possibly could for the first round of blizzard!


43335

kotora v Formalhaut:
Due to a lack of Formalhaut (along with an inevitable victory by kotora), Formalhaut has been disqualified and kotora moves on!

Rocket Edge v Pantz:
Not sure where Rocket Edge went! Gotta disqualify him :( Series goes to Pantz!

theundeadhero v Cim:
Can't seem to find their second match, don't know if it happened, but Cim won the first so handedly that I'm going to give him the series Replay (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8239).

Next bracket for Blizzard goes up soon! Congrats to the following who will be advancing in Blizzard:

Ultima Shadow
06-11-2013, 01:32 AM
Always hard to predict with Plus/Same and no Open.It becomes more of a guessing game. The more you have mixed up your cards in previous matches, the harder your cards will be to predict though, and Bleys has done a very good job at that. I didn't see that Jumbo Cactuar coming either, and seriously thought you had won the game the moment Bleys played Propagator (I knew you had Tiamat).

And yeah, that was probably the most back and forth game in the whole tournament too. :p


Looks like the 3 finalists for Blizzaga have all been decided too. Is there going to be a "grand final bracket" since there are 3 finalists? =O


Edit: Also, Jumbo Cactuar = most awesome level 7 card. Period. :monster:

Do not disqualify me! :( Our game has just been going on for ages. I'm waiting for his next turn the last couple of days. I'll probably lose but hey.

Sadly we have to keep these things moving. GoBo is working on a schedule that he better keep to! :argh:

Sorry Shauna! :( Things have been very hectic in my life - unforeseen circumstances! With that said, our 3 Blizzaga round victors have been decided!

Shads, BoB, and Bleys! I don't think anyone predicted that but I have to double check. Will edit in people who got it right if any exist! Next round will be up today! :)

Hey all! I have to be on a train in 1 hour so I'm making this quick. Will fill in results from last round later, and will pretty this up later.

BLIZZAGA SEMI-FINALS

3 Competitors do a round robin, 1 match per opponent.

Round match rules!

Open
Combo
Same
Plus
Sudden Death
Victory Rule: One

That's right, one. The games are open again, but no competitor can just power through with overwhelming force... without risking that overwhelming force! ;D Good luck all. Top two competitors of this round go to the Finals!

EDIT: Betting - predict the two finalists.

I'm betting on Shads since he has some overwhelming force to spare.

Still it'd be a shame if he lost that Edea :P

Or one of his 25 Ultima Weapons. :p

Losing Edea is a trivial matter compared to losing my pride by chickening out. :greenie:

Edit: I shall bet on me as well. Me and... *flips coin* ...BoB.

I think I'll just fight BoB and Shads at the same time, David and Goliath style.

Ultima Shadow vs. Bleys (http://home.eyesonff.com/tripletriad.php?do=arena&act=replay&id=8560), predictably :p

GG! So... BoB is next. Though I might as well just wait for Bleys vs BoB to finish so I can figure out whenever I have to win against BoB too or not. :monster:



Edit: actually, screw that. *challenges BoB right away*
