Congratulations to Jobiwan, Champion of Initech VII: Asia & Pacific!GOLD: JobiwanSILVER: jricartBRONZE: RoOkAzJobiwan won a tight final group via the second tiebreaker, just edging out jricart for the tournament championship. Quick 8-round wins on the Soviet Union, Indochina and Greater China maps put Jobiwan out to fast lead with 3 wins. But jricart fought back, earning wins on Oceania, Middle East, and Cairns Coastal. It all came down to the Asia map, where jricart still had a shot to pull out victory. But a convincing win on that map by General Flashman sent the championship to tiebreakers. Since Jobiwan and jricart both had won 4 maps in the first round, the second tiebreaker—fewest rounds to get final round wins—was utilized. Jobiwan’s quick victories proved the difference. So, by the closest of margins, Jobiwan was crowned champion of Initech VII: Asia & Pacific.
Jobiwan concluded 55-game, 2-round, 11-map tournament with the following statistics: 22 games played, 7 map wins. The complete stats for the Final Group participants:
