The problem is that a tied score is highly likely, almost guaranteed.
Sudden death between the tied teams ;)

Weren't the finals initially intended to be a best of 5?

According to this:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/19_Zpqhe3qrwz1t5Rmxe4depJl8a0VBsP4A2eNMB98HA/edit

It was always intended to be a double round robin from the start.

I'm not sure if that's a credible way to prove that it's always been like that, considering the document says matches start at 7:00 PM yet when the event was first announced it was 6:00 PM, and to my knowledge was bumped up a few days before the tournament.

My apologies, however I then submit this post: https://gunsoficarus.com/community/forum/index.php/topic,6952.msg119535.html#msg119535

As stated at the very last line week 10 will involve 4 teams in a double round robin in a post last modified 18 November 2016.

I would also like to submit: https://gunsoficarus.com/community/forum/index.php/topic,6823.msg117357.html#msg117357

At the end of the list of numbers its talked about that the 4 teams will fight in the finals. Here he states that Team A as an example has 6 wins. While not quite conclusive of anything it does imply at least 6 matches played, which ties into a double round robin.

Lastly, I would like to make a note that I am taking forum posts far too seriously. I hope you have a good day though!

Week 1 was odd, we had a time change between when the tournament was originally drafted and when it began. Then we were missing a caster and refs, and it had to be pushed back anyways. As has been explained previously.


It has always been set as a round robin. I'm not sure how we could accomplish a best of five with single ship teams, and still come out with a single winner.

First of all, thank you for providing appropriate sources. And secondly, I think some sort of solution needs to be found for a tiebreaker. For now I'm contemplating the idea of having a 7th "tiebreaker" match where either the 1st place team is matched with 3rd and 2nd with 4th or both tied teams get matched with one of the other teams in the bracket under the condition that it turns into a tie. Thoughts?

In the event of a tie by the end of the tournament, the team with the highest score coming into the finals will be the winner.


Is this up for debate? (Not being sarcastic)

This rule made sense to me.

Tie breaker 1 will almost certainly be kills made during the finals. Tie breaker 2 will almost certainly be whoever came into the finals with the higher score.


I'm skeptical about adding more matches, because there's no good way to pair up teams without someone feeling cheated or feeling like they're at a disadvantage. With 6 matches scheduled, there's a great chance that scores won't be tied in the event of a win/loss tie.

This makes sense. Promotes killing and has a solidus(lol) contingency.

So are we using the original rules or this set?
