I understand your view on points as I won 6 and probably only gained 10 points or so, but from a tournament point of view the setup is horrible.

any competitive tournament sets up the bracket in the way I described.

Did I set it up wrong? It's easily fixable. I apologize if I did. Can you tell me what is right? I'd rather set it up the correct way than the wrong way.

What Edbeard described is the correct way for a tournament to be set up so that the top rated teams are not playing each other in the early rounds. Like no one wants to see New England play Indianpolis in the first round of the NFL playoffs. Fortunately that won't happen.

Dude (or dudette)!!

That is awful. I see where you are coming from. I didn't even look to see how my points changed. I might have lost a lot myself without realizing it.

If you win the tournament, I am sure you will get your points back.

WidowMakers vs Ghost_Rider

I should win 2 of the last 3. That would be 7 vs 1.
I will lose Indochina.

I win about 8-9 points per win and lose 44 per loss. Fortunately I will come out ahead with around 30 points for 7 wins.

Postby yeti_c on Mon Nov 12, 2007 6:39 am

I was in the middle of the seeding (Well 1 below middle) so my opponent was just ahead on points... and we shared 4 wins and 4 losses... So I gained a massive 12 points...

When are the deciders run Gill?

Unless I'm really unlucky - then I've won the Decider (from a horrid drop - fortunately I went first and had good dice!)
