"# The top half of the players with the most wins move on to another round next weekend during the same times, the winner of that will win the Tournament"

To me that seems like the winner of that weekend, which would be the one with the most wins for that weekend. I could be terribly wrong though

I ran it by an unbiased tourney director and he saw it the same way as me because I didnt want to be biased.

At best it is very unclear. There have been too many times where after receiving pm's I have had to clarify exactly what the meaning is for this tourney.

This is all my opinion and it means absolutely nothing.

We also didn't get games Thursday night or Friday morning, but late Friday night which cuts down on the chance to play games.

I just would suggest that some clearer rules be made the next time and maybe some better planning.

Again, just my opinion which means jack.

I know I am a bit negative on this, but clarity is key to running tourneys. i hope my negative criticism just helps to make a better tourney next time. Hope it is more like constructive criticism.

One final note--The GA Medal information is not posted in this thread anywhere that I have seen (I may have missed it)

Can you please post the details on how to win it--I have two pm's with different info so I would like to see the exact details in the thread if that is possible--thanks

I am sorry for this unclarity. I haven't been running Tournaments like this very long, and am still learning.

After a quick analytical purview of the OP makes me see this. You opinion isn't nothing, if you hadn't told me this, I bet no one would have ;)

We also didn't get games Thursday night or Friday morning, but late Friday night which cuts down on the chance to play games.

Noted.

Again, just my opinion which means jack.


Not really :D

Thanks for all of the tips, HA. You've been organizing tournaments a lot longer than I, so I'll be sure to take this advice soundly. kooler's analysis was correct, that was the line that I thought clarified who would win what.

I'll post GA Medal info in the thread soon. Sorry for the mishaps!

Hey man--I really appreciate you taking my criticism lightly--I am too ultra competitive and can be an ass at times. I try to be professional about it most of the time but sometimes I go way too far. I do appreciate the tourneys and appreciate the work you put towards them. Usually I will make sure ahead of time on most anything that would be unclear so I take fault in myself for that part. The good thing is you told me what you meant by the rules before hand so I was not shocked in the end. I will post this in the thread as well.

I think I am done playing now--looks like the players I can still play are not playing anymore so with 4 possible games left here are my stats for the GA medal:

USA 24 from 32(75%) 75
USA Great Lakes 4 from 5(80%) 80
USA New England 3 from 5(60%) 60
USA Rockies 7 from 8(88%) 88
USA Southeast 4 from 7(57%) 57
USA Southwest 4 from 6(67%) 67
USA West 5 from 9(56%) 56
AVERAGE 69

I was 20-6 this round so that should also qualify me for the win depending on if others play more

I was 51-21 for the whole tourney

Thanks again for hosting and I look forward to the new speed tourneys in the future

Thanks for doing your stats! I'll still double check everyone elses, but I do think you've won. Results probably tonight, but definitely by tomorrow night.

This is vital for speed tournaments.

Alright, if my number crunching is correct (should be -- spent forever counting/double checking), then HighlanderAttack is the winner of both the tournament AND the GA Medal! Everyone congrats to HA for a job well done!
