"The Cogs" Week 1 - Brackets
« on: March 20, 2013, 12:34:20 pm »
Well, this is what you've been waiting for. The Week 1 matchups.

First up, I'd like to apologise to Team Merry and the Gents for failing to stream their match... A lot of us were disappointed last week when we were unable to capture it due to the technical difficulties... However, now that the Cogs are officially underway, we're confident we can avoid making the same mistakes.

We'll just make entirely new mistakes. It's our 'thing'.

Now, enough of that. Let's get to the brackets! (Click to enlarge)



Match 1 sees our current Champion team Merry Northern Storm face off against community favorites The Paddling. With a champion spot on the line and their crew rosters locked and at their peak, both teams are going throw everything they've got at one another in the open air of Battle on the Dunes. With the current champions having knocked down The Gentlemen during the chaos of Week 0 in a surprise victory, the ducks have got their work cut out for them!

Match 2 features upcomer team The Pastafarians proving themselves against the established juggeraut that is the Corvus Marauders. Last week, Pasta proved themselves in an explosive first match against the Muse devs themselves, and no doubt they're eager to continue their hot streak all the way into the upper echelon of The Cogs. But the crows aren't gonna make it easy for them, since they certainly don't wanna be knocked down to the Upcomer's cog. With so much on the line for both teams as the scramble for that spot in the Challenger's cog, who will take the match as both teams descend into the murky mists of Duel At Dawn? Pirate vs Crow, that most eternal of struggles. Should be fun!

Match 3 will be our final match, seeing the battered and bruised Museosaurs once again thrown into an ordeal that may very well prove too much for them to handle... But with Bubbles out of town for PAX, maybe they might have a chance after all? Facing down our corageous devs are the fresh batch of Ducks, brewed up only a day ago, The Raft. Featuring established captains and crew foraged from all corners of the community, from teams past and present to the Burning Skies Roleplay, they're certainly a formidable challange on paper... But will their inexperience be to Muse's advantage? That inexperience could very well be Raft's downfall as the teams head towards Canyon Ambush. In those tight confines, amidst the red rocks and the thick clouds that swirl between them, communication will be key... And miscommunication will be fatal.


Well, that's Week 1. Once again, watch all the action alongside Qwerty2Jam on Twitch where we'll be commentating on all the action as well as dragging a few of the players onto the stream to poke them with sticks until they say things... Or if you're lucky enough to be at PAX, drop by the Muse booth and watch us on the big screen alongside Bubbles and the others!

Goodbye and good luck. Stay safe out there.

Swallow, it's "Corvus Marauders", NOT  Corvus Mercenaries. I am not sure where you got Mercenaries from. LOL

This is why we can't have nice things.

As well PhatGuySebb will be a replacement for Grayknight on gunner/buffer engineer on my ship, since Grayknight will not be available this Saturday.

And thank you. :)

Anyone notice the Raft's new logo on appears to feature a Duck floating in its own urine? I am like 90% that was not in the original design.

Whatever, it's a valid tactic.

Ok Swallow I was just informed that Phatguysebb would like the Welsh flag by his name. We also have a temporary logo for our team.

I can officially say that that'll be a huge pain in the dick to convert to an alpha'd icon. Could you upload a transparent version?

Thanks for the game PaFa, good luck next week, and have a nice trip Zwaene.

Now to something serious.

We were told that our 2nd crow team was going to replace MUSE, because they couldnt make it. I used and hour to muster the 2nd team who wasnt informed that they were going to play.
Then when we had them ready MUSE showed up, 20 minutes late and got their spot back. This is not ok with us.

The problem is that we werent informed that MUSE was going to get their spot back, we just heard it on the livestream.
team 2 didnt get to play and was very disappointed, they practiced before the match.
Our guys waited for 2 hours to get to play their match, and then they werent allowed. Thats wasting our time to be honest, and we'd like this not to happen again.

Hey Skrim,

Yeah very sorry about that there was a heap of confusion going around with trying to organise things. We are trying our very best to make this work and will prevent such an error occuring in the future.
I am very sorry about this, I personally apologise to every member of the Crows that was inconvenienced by my blunder.

I am looking forward to seeing the Crows matches next week and wish you all the best.

Cheers,

Qwerty2jam
