Hey folks, if you're interested in another tournament similar to this one, I've started another (with 64 players this time!). Go to the "Join A Game" forum and look it up under "An Evolutionary Tournament".

Heh...you're doing too much of the kicking ass and not enough of the taking names! <laughing> Basically, you're sitting in the semi-finals of the A Bracket waiting for someone else to catch up.

The pairing that you'll play the winner of is Mustapha Mond and the winner of whatreality/risinghero. So as soon as those two play, Mustapha Mond will get them and you'll get the winner of that.

Right now, we've got five of the top 8 in Bracket A filled up, although that includes Funkelee whom you already dispatched.

Only three "active" spots left open in that tourney - it looks to be HIGHLY competitive, with some of the highest-point-owners on the site in it. If you like competition, that is the place to be! Here's the link:

and how is it i'm playing someone who's already played 5 rounds?
i can't possibly imagine how the bracket works that pits someone who's played 3 rounds versus someone who's played 5 rounds...

Particularly rough when you're playing one of the top players in the tournament. That was a brutal drop for you, no doubt.

Sure, it's simple. Gilligan made it to the finals of Bracket A (which gave him his five games). With that loss in the finals, he dropped down to the third round of Bracket B (he got byes in the first two rounds of Bracket B for his Bracket A wins), where you had the misfortune of facing him. Two rounds of byes is the most that can be gained, and those are done to keep the brackets as even as possible while also giving some benefit to those who do well in previous brackets.

This is really a very common thing done in wrestling tournaments throughout the nation (high school and college-level).

The only way the "rounds" would work out evenly would be if I had Gilligan get byes all the way to the finals of Bracket B, and that just doesn't make sense. Not to mention it would extend the brackets enormously.

The same thing has happened with you in Bracket C. Due to your making it to the third round of Bracket B before losing, you start out in the second round of Bracket C (the game will be coming to you in PM momentarily).
