TC OPEN: Round 3 Pairings

LAST CHANCES IN ROUND 3
A dozen players have qualified, but for 35 others this is an elimination round. Most must win their game to make the 32 player bracket. I have decided make things just a tiny bit harder than “win your game”. If we saw 9+ upsets at the top 10 tables (0W 2L against the undefeated players), we would have 33+ players qualify — but I will be making a hard cut at 28 players, so if you are currently 0W 2L try to score high in Round 3! I will only take 4 of you, and there are 11.

Reasons for this hard cut:
— A 64 player bracket would have only 1-2 games in the first elimination round.
— I wish to preserve the “free bracket win” reward for top scorers. (4-8 players)

Players that lose in Round 3, unless they have already qualified, will not qualify for the bracket. The 0W 2L players will only be competing against one another, with the top 4 scores taking bracket seats 25-28. If we see few or no upsets in Round 3, these last seats will be left empty.

ROUND 3 will end after SEPT 30th. Round 3 will not be extended.

REPORTING GAMES/PROBLEMS
Unreported games are scored as a loss for both players. However, players struggling to schedule may contact me to report an uncooperative opponent — I may score one player with the win in this situation. As noted above, I will not be accepting requests to extend the Round 3 deadline. I will either determine a winner or declare a double loss.

The winner of each game is responsible for reporting its outcome to me.

When reporting your game, I require the following:
— Contact me via private message, here at Team Covenant.
— Name your opponent for the game, by the name listed above.
— Accurately tell me the score of the game.

I may or may not request a log of your game. Be sure to record.

LINK TO ROUND 2 PAIRINGS

🙂 Good luck to all players in Round 3. 🙂

AFTER THIS ROUND — NEW SQUADS ALLOWED!
As per the format rules, I will require all qualifying players to submit a new list. However, I am not accepting new squads at this time — please do not send me your new squad until after Round 3 has completed. I will post the final results at that time, and in that post I will open the elimination sign-ups. Players will have one week, from October 1st to October 7th, to send me the list they wish to use. Players who do not send me a list during that week will be dropped, regardless of record or score.

Players may choose to re-send their qualifying list; do so during the sign-up window.

  1. ———————————————-
    12 UNDEFEATED SQUADS: BREAKDOWN
    ———————————————-
    8 Rebels
    — 5 with Biggs (only 1 with Lowhhrik also)
    — 3 with Nym (only 1 without Miranda also)
    — 1 of each with 400-0 MoV (not Lowhhrik, not Miranda-free)

    4 Imperials
    — no similar lists here to group
    — 1 at 400-0 (ion control)

    0 S&V
    — a bit surprising to me

    The expected ratio here was 6 Rebels, 3 Imperials, 3 S&V.
    S&V is getting its butt kicked; I’ll be looking closely at why.

    ———————————————-
    WIN-LESS SQUADS: BREAKDOWN
    ———————————————-
    4 Rebels
    — 1 with Biggs + Lowhhrik
    — 1 with Nym + Miranda
    — 1 with Intensity Poe (a meta ship in live play atm)
    — 1 with high performance Wedge

    3 Imperials
    — 1 with ion control
    — 1 Stealthed turtle list
    — 1 high PS joust list

    4 S&V
    — 2 Marauder-heavy lists
    — 1 Nym bomber list
    — 1 Mindlink ace list

    The expected ratio here was 5 Rebels, 3 Imperials, 3 S&V.
    We are close enough to that; I don’t see any problems.

    ———————————————-
    QUICK ASSESSMENT OF “META”
    ———————————————-
    The format rules didn’t change that much from last time, except I gave Khiraxz Fighters a bigger discount than the previous tournament. Scurgg use in casual play has been taking off online during the tournament, so I think we’ll see S&V players looking more to that ship in their efforts to combat other factions. It is strong vs bombs and can hit hard enough for cost to break a Biggs list, plus has access to the tools it needs to combat aces. This may have been a case of players jumping on the -3 Khiraxz discount, only to find that the ship isn’t a killer even at that cost.

    1. Conclusion, wave 12 and 13 MUST boost S&V at all costs, they are absolutely not competitive enough. IMO give a Sabine equivalent that deals 2 splash damage, that will put Nym on the map finally!
      😉

  2. So here’s my message to Haslo:
    I live in Eastern Daylight Savings Time (Toronto).

    Here’s my availability:

    Thursday (tomorrow): 8:30pm on
    Friday: 9am to 3pm & then 8:30pm on
    Sunday: 8:30pm on
    Monday: 9am to 3pm & then 8:30pm on
    Tuesday: 9am to 3pm & then 8:30pm on
    Wednesday: 9am to 3pm & then 8:30pm on

  3. All players should have made contact and scheduled a game by now. If your opponent has not (and you’ve not already told me), please contact me ASAP — it could be important to scoring you with a win for this round.

  4. I am expecting these 4 games to go unplayed:
    — Theorist vs Bahourmat (currently default win for me)
    — EldarLord vs Oiler (currently default win for EldarLord)
    — LeoArthur vs Larock (currently default win for LeoArthur)
    — Timanseb vs Discordia (currently default double-loss)

    Please report your game results before October 1st, or let me know why the game was not played. I will score each game as a double loss if I have no information to determine a winner. Time is running out!

  5. BRACKET SIGN-UP
    I will be ending Round 3 in roughly 12 hours, and opening sign-ups for elimination at that time for players who have qualified for the run. I will make a new post at that time, with a list of final qualifying scores and details.
