"The Cogs" Week 8 Open Qualifier
« on: September 09, 2013, 05:58:20 pm »
Hey all! Info about the open qualifier!

Quote
Week 8 is a open qualifier tournament, in which any team in any standing may compete for a position in the week 9 finale. The overall format of this tournament may change dramatically depending on the number of participating teams, though. More details on each season’s Week 8 is posted on the forums in advance. Either three or six teams will advance from Week 8.

All teams are invited to sign up for Week 8. They don't have to have participated in the Cogs previously in order to enter- the roster is open to all! Teams currently in the top four positions(Raft, Brood, Paddling, and Sky Invading Rhinos) don't participate in week 8- they're already qualified for Week 9.

Everyone who is interested needs to give me their roster ASAP in order for me to make the brackets. It is because of this that I will need to be strict with late sign-ups. Friday at 11:59am Eastern will be the cutoff. Friday at noon- eastern time. Any later and clans wouldn't know who or where they were playing the qualifier.

Send me your roster HERE on the forums via a message. That way, I have everything nicely organized and I can't lose anything. Don't comment it, because there's always a chance it could get buried if a conversation takes off.

Week 8 nutshell info:
Positions 1a, 2a, 2b, 2c are all getting into Week 9.
Everyone who wants a chance to play in the grand final needs to sign up for Week 8.
Week 8 will be single elimination.
Brackets will be decided sometime after noon on Friday.

I'll do my best to answer further questions in the comments below. Otherwise, congratulations, Raft, Brood, Paddling, and Sky Invading Rhinos! And good luck to everyone else!


BRACKETS <-- so fancy

The rosters are in, and the brackets were generated. http://challonge.com/zpn1g98e

The Gentlemen and Wolfpack will be the first match of the day, and they'll face off on Battle on the Dunes

The victor of the previous match will go up against Flying Dutchmen in the Northern Fjords

The final match of the day will have Cake and BFS fisticuffs it out on Canyon Ambush

Two winners will come out of Week 8, and they will go on to play in Week 9. Best of luck, everyone!

Cullen you've been doing a stand up job with a league that you inherited.

Thanks!

You know what's over-rated?

Fire extinguishing tools. I mean really. Mallet/spanner/buff all the way.

In completely unrelated news: Cake's gonna make a grand appearance!

I'll send the Roaster when I have a good hold on who will be on crew and who can sub. thanks.

Also, can you let me know when you plan on starting Saturday? in the Cogs I have played at 1PM EST and 4PM EST. This will determine if a clan member can join.

Thanks
Rutger.

Well sammie, that is nice, but I played at 11AM PST as a Falconeer. that is great and all.... so please be a little more respectful.

Thank you however, in your own way, letting me know that it is 4.

You sure it wasn't another event? The setup for Cogs and most other events on that day usually happen around the same time. Think the only one to go outside this was that Spire event.

kinda dissappointing that already being in the cog tournament isnt a ticket to the finals.
we have put alot of work into getting in the cogs.

It doesn't matter though, since we will be starting at the back again we have more oppenents to kill and more souls to claim.

Beware, The Dutchmen is coming.
